My pig

Nothing meaningful to post ... so, here's a pig!

Stars n Pimps

Another practice on Illustrator. This is inspired by a certain pop star ...

Clear II!

Getting used to getting things done in Illustrator ... amazing to see it all in vector, I guess the extra effort is worth it for flexible scaling.

Clear ... and fuzzy about Illustrator CS

I've been trying to figure out Illustrator CS, but still have not figured out how to apply shading in an efficient manner. The Illustrator help and tutorials didn't help, or I must've missed it somewhere. Do I have to path out every single shaded part and avoid overlapping of paths throughout? It is an extremely tedious process ... isn't there an easy way out like Freehand's 'paste inside'? (where I can etch out a general area of a darker shade and paste it into the confines of a lighter shade?) If you happen to have a solution to this, please, please let me know!

Took another piece of old work to do a Live Trace in Illustrator, it's a really useful feature. Again, I don't know how to go about shading it ...

I'm not even sure what kind of 'style' I'm trying to achieve ... it's been difficult to draw lately. Anyway, since I've got it done, here it is, a post-Halloween smoking ghost.
