Riley - First Act
Riley is a drummer from a series of rockers drawn for First Act, an innovative company which produces musical instruments. Riley is another one of my favorites. Her hair came out nicely, although in the grand scheme of the image, it's sort of secondary. The shading on her shirt was very pleasing to my eye: One of the few times I don't think additional ink-lines were needed to define the shape. The drum set is a hi-resolution photograph, and the entire illustration, shading, coloring, and inking, was created in Adobe Illustrator. The final deliverable is a life-size print, arranged with an actual instrument.
