I was super priveliged to speak at the 2015 Mobile Digital Arts & Creativity Conference in Palo Alto this year. I wanted to not only demo as many of the new apps offered by Adobe that I could, but also create a format to show the full process of a real finished illustration in under an hour. Below are a series of timelapse videos with a description of each step in the process.
I saw a lot of great stuff being worked on at the summit be sure to follow this event in the future.
After that I opened Adobe Shape and used the app to create a couple vector shape captures. Note that I am saving everything in each app to the same library in my Creative Cloud account.

I used screengrabs of the drawings i just made in Draw, and created custom brushes in Adobe Brush. I created the brushes in the app specifically to use in Adobe Sketch.

At this point I stay in Sketch and start building the pencil sketch of the piece using my PS Mix comp as a guide and adding in all the details I want to use in the final ilustration.
Once I get the sketch part developed to where I'm happy, I save the sketch to my device and then open up Adobe Draw.
At this point I use a mixture of drawing and stamping shapes made in Adobe Shape to create the finished vector illustration. When Im done I export it by hitting "send to Illustrator" and it opens up on my desktop.
Then once I have the illustration in Adobe Illustrator I make some color tweaks and even revisit those Shape graphics that I made as they are accessible in the libraries panel of Illustrator. Little bit of finishing touches and It's done.
I'm not a pro at editing videos so feel free to ask any questions if a step was clear in the videos.
