I’ve been trying my hand at digital illustration recently, but still prefer to begin with physical sketching out of habit. I started these caricatures with pens and recreated them using Illustrator. I mimicked the line-based shading from my sketches, and I think they turned out well. There’s something really beautiful about the simplicity of digital work. The perfect symmetry and absence of stray lines in these designs offers something that can’t be done by hand.
