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.
