Illustrator drawing Programs: - Sony Vegas Pro 8 - Adobe Illustrator CS3 - Camtasia Studio 5 Music used: - (Wendy Moten) "Whatever you Imagine" - (Dragonball Z Ultimate Battle 22 PSX Game) "Eien No Yakusoku Theme" - (5 Centimeter per Second) "Distant Everyday Memories" I was actually bored, so I decide to make an drawing video. I was inspired by Lerms and his video So I come up to make my own. I used Illustrator for about an month now, the only that I know is how to use vector and some photoshop effect filters. Mabey I gonna used more technique with the next drawing video. I started from sketch. So it make for me alot easier, normally I'm not getting used on digital drawing. It is an quick sketching (less than half an hour work). It's a very simple sketch, sometimes doesn't going well (meaning the hair is too large or it's looks wierd etc.) But the result at the end with using Illustrator, I was satisfied. Actually there can still adding things on the background, but it's not necessary. If you want to check the picture closely, come check at my DeviantArt account
