The technique I used for this design is vector illustrating off of photographs.I could hand draw something then create my vector art off of that, but that would take about twice as long. Unfortunately you can’t tell your photo to change positions, so you’re forced to do an extensive search until you find the pose you’re after.A computer Adobe Illustrator Adobe Photoshop (just a little bit) Access to stock images (or stolen ones will work too.)
