Step 1 Vector Illustration: Dragon

Step 1 Vector Illustration: Dragon

(Tools Needed; Adobe illustrator, pen tool,)

The Vector illustration above is the first step i go through when drawing many of my pieces using the pen tool I would outline a basic sketch and use the “Fill” to make the lines thicker and smaller in certain areas.

The First Enlarged box shows off the dragons face and all the detail within it, the pen tool is used to make the darkest shadows bigger and to outline the dragons texture to come.

The Second Enlarged box shows the dragons one of many scars across his body the scar is created using the pen tool but without a fill and just a stroke technique, the reason for that is mostly subjective but i wanted the upcoming scars to have a different fell to them regarding the skin.

Step 2 will be about adding color to the illustration in illustrator
