  1. Thanks for the positive feedback!


    You are pretty close on how I made the image. I actually started out a hand drawing. In photoshop there is a pen tool which creates vector images (Don't know if illustrator has this). I used the drawing as a rough template for creating the shapes. Then I went back and changed anything that did not look "right."


    The detail was done in photoshop too. For the coloring, the pen tool has an outline and fill option. I used both to get the basic un-shaded/un-detailed version. The gradients were done two ways: (1) Using the brush tool and blending by lightly smudging or (2) Using the gradient tool. Method 1 was used in smaller areas. Method 2 was used in larger areas. For method 2, I selected the area I was going to shade and then made the gradient (trying to keep the placement of the light consistent so the shading was correct). The detail on the gun was made with the brush tool. The brush was at mid hardness (between 30%-80%). I choose a size paint.
