I’m still working on the vector illustration that I’ve written about recently, and it’s proving to be more involved than I originally thought it would be. I’ve been designing monsters which come to me more easily than what I am attempting with this illustration. This is also a more involved scene with more characters involved and while I have an image in my head and a few pencil sketched plans, I’m still figuring it out as I go along. It feels as if I am crafting the pieces as I am assembling the puzzle.
My tool of choice is the superlative vector illustration and design program known as Affinity Designer. It is similar to Adobe Illustrator, but it does not suffer the bloat or the subscription fee of it’s more famous competitor. The interface is fairly intuitive, and it’s easy to get up and running after a few of their free video tutorials.
