That’s the second article of the series where I share my journey switching from Photoshop to Illustrator for creating my illustrations.
After the first weeks working on Illustrator, I realised that I was still tied up to Photoshop to develop the sketches. I’m not up to sketch using Illustrator directly because I prefer to draw. I found that drawing was my natural way of bringing ideas to the reality. Illustrator is not related to drawing, but more to composing using Shapes, the Pathfinder and the Pen tool.
My previous workflow consisted of sketching in a notebook using a pencil and then creating the final sketch from scratch in Photoshop using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD.
As I switched from Photoshop to Illustrator, I thought it was a nice opportunity also to question my sketching process and a good chance to improve the whole workflow.
