All the years I have had a graphics tablet, I have not used it on Illustrator! So i have been experimenting with how it works. The image bellow works very well. I think the texture/lines in the hair work far better on Illustrator than in Photoshop. Also the design has a crisper cleaner feel too. Also experimented with tonal shapes and different ways of adding tone and shadows to the designs. The self portrait will be used on the front page of this blog as it helps and enhances the intro text!
