Hello fellow vector fanatics, my name is Sharon Milne and I sometimes go under the moniker ChewedKandi. I’ve been interested in digital art for over a decade now but it wasn’t until five years ago that I got into vector art. Since then it’s been an addictive and scalable journey with Adobe® Illustrator®.
It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to share with you my process of putting together this Zodiac/Leo the Lion themed vector portrait which I created using Adobe Illustrator CS5.
This tutorial is full of helpful hints on using a variety of tools in Illustrator CS5 as well as some of the thought processes behind elements of the portrait. If you’ve any questions, please leave them in the comments and I’ll be sure to help any way I can. So let’s get on with it, shall we?
