Illustrator Versus Photoshop....FIGHTTT!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of my latest pieces, all done in Illustrator. I don't normally use this program, I tend to stick with Adobe Photoshop but lately, I feel like the greetings card market is dropping the more 'formal' type illustrations for a more stylized image. So, with this in mind I've decided to get some much needed practice in.

All in all, I'm quite happy with the final result but I most admit to prefering Photoshop, I feel like you can beef up your work and achieve some nice effects and I really feel more in control of that program than Illustrator. Still, I will try to do the odd illo in vectors just to keep up to speed.

Hey, I thought you were a novice with Illustrator.

Good thing about vector graphics is you can blow 'em up to the size of a house with no loss of detail.

...useful if you plan to illustrate a representation of your ego.

ha,ha,ha!!! ;¬)

This is brilliant. Love the texture on his cheeks which softens his face. There's a great feel of space and movement too.

I went on an Illustrator course and it's still not my program. Just can't do vector. I prefer Painter for drawing.
