A self portrait to practice and hone my style of me skating.
Published:
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.

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
