Photoshop/Illustrator Workflow

-Rough.

This is the cleaned up rough of my self-portrait avatar. I sketched this digitally. With this character/mascot design workflow, I start with the rough.

-Lineart.

The sketch is refined in Photoshop and carried over to Illustrator for "finessing". This is the lineart stage.

-Color.

Well this pretty much speaks for itself. Coloring is completed in Illustrator.
I still like to experiment with the details of my coloring technique, but I'm getting close to an all-around method that works for me in terms of speed while maintaining quality.

Description

The purpose of this project is to show you a workflow that I’m currently working with to produce mascot designs. I’m always changing my techniques as I explore, but this is one that I think I’m pretty comfortable with.
