Suit tie semi-aerial illo

Here's a first sketch for a small side job in progress... They need a full body illustration of a guy in suit and tie, but have limited space on the page, so this semi-aerial perspective helps condense it in more of a square format. I couldn't find many good reference photos from this viewpoint, so most of it's just from imagination, plus lots of refinement.

Here's a screen shot of a recent illustration for a Facebook application. Usually I start with a pencil illustration, then add the linework/coloring in PhotoShop, but this time I started with a whiteboard illustration. It worked out pretty well, as I was able to erase and refine the linework a lot easier. I think if you look closely, the black lines are a little wispy compared to inking them in PhotoShop, but it works for this app, and I produced this in about 1/10th of the time it usually takes for an illustration like this.


The actual app is here.

Over time I've had to study and draw many hands. Hands are notoriously difficult to draw, but when they come off well, it adds a lot to the illustration. I usually like to have a photo reference when drawing hands as I don't think I've ever seen two identical shots/positions of hands... they're almost as unique as faces. Anyway, here's a group of hand illustrations I've done - some of them are recycled from prior blog posts, some from other sources.
