Today I released the latest illustration in the new series I'm creating. You can see the preview image here. But above I also posted the vector alongside the final so you could see it as well. Normally all my spaceship illustration begin life as vector drawings (90% do), as I find that the best way to get the basics down before painting them in photoshop. For some projects, like the SoE illustration or Freaky Frigates, I stay in Illustrator the entire time. But those have typically been a different style. The SoE illustration is essentially a line drawing with color added, and the Freaky Frigates are very cartoon based. I started wondering what would happen if I just took the entire thing to finish within illustrator. I've done it a few times, like with the Vexor Navy a few years ago.
You may have also noticed that my earlier post about the FF4A has been pulled. I put it back into DRAFT mode a few minutes ago. As usual this community of ours is amazing and some new information has arisen today that might change my decision. I remain an open minded Pirate Lord. So the news about the cancellation may, and I stress may, have been premature. We'll see how this develops, but the potential is there for this event to not only happen - but happen in an even bigger and better way.
So fingers crossed.
