Skateboard Self Portrait Process

  • A few weeks ago I was feeling a bit out of touch with my style. I was drawing a lot for a client and that style had sort of developed into its own. So I wanted to just go off and draw something else. I did some sketching and then went digital self portrait in a style I'm comfortable with. No textures just shapes. 
    Below are some sketches and the way it evolved into this unfinished piece now. I have plans to take it into a little city I'm working on (see at the bottom)
    You guys can see more progress I'll post on my dribbble account.
  • Make sure to click images to see em in full detail
  • Tattoo close up
  • 1080p wallpaper
  • Detail of my Nike Janoskis
  • I start with a real rough sketch in a notebook with a pen usually
  • I take a photo with my iphone and bring it into photoshop, mess with the levels to get it clean
  • And start working with it in illustrator directly on top
  • I try to use a pretty basic color palette. I'll add more color later in photoshop if I decide its something I want to do
  • Workspace with some inspiration / photos for reference
  • Coming along quite nicely
    I wanted a jagged edge, sort of cartoony but not too cute
  • I'm going to start on putting this into a cityscape in my spare time. Follow along to see it evolve on behance and dribbble
