Vector draw a cat over a photo

I drew over a previous cat photo to experiment with abstraction. The reflection seems to work well based on only the natural shape distortion (over a car hood).

This guy took off at Palo Alto station so I drew him mostly from visual memory.

Quick draw + sketch of a homeless evening train passenger from memory

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 8:50 am
Tags:

My brain was preoccupied by a research issue and had limited bandwidth to spot drawing subjects on the evening train, until a homeless guy boarded at the California Avenue station. Like many other homeless folks, this guy also has very unique characteristics. He moved around a lot inside the train and disembarked in the next stop (Palo Alto station) so I could only quickly sketch him from memory, followed by vector draw at home later in the night.

Experiment with vector draw over raster sketch

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 10:49 pm
Tags:

Drawing vector graphics from scratch can be difficult, so I was recommended to first sketch and import as a reference for vector drawing.
The two posts below show the process in Adobe (raster) Sketch and (vector) Draw.
