Free-Form Artwork
When I have conference calls, and I'm listening to some marketing director prattle on as if they have the secret to the creative universe I must hear before I start a project I grab a note pad and doodle so that my mind doesn't wander. Drawing helps me focus and remember things.

At the end of one of those type of calls I ended up with this sketch, and I loved it.
Rough sketch during conference call.
I decided I wanted to flesh out this artwork and see where it led, so I refined my drawing.
Refined sketch I'll build from in Illustrator.
Once I have a refined sketch done I scan it in and build on top of it in illustrator. Between the above-refined sketch and the vector building, I decided to add more imagery to this visual narrative and added the winged character. The whole process is documented in my DVGLab.com weekly series here.

Scatter brush texturing was created with my 'Awesomely Organic' brushes available through Retro Supply Co.
