As part of my scheme to transfer from natural media to digital illustration, I set myself an exercise of making a sci-fi book cover illustration. Not that you see much of this sort of thing these days, but I was a big fan of Chris Foss in the 70s when his work was gracing the covers of many books. One thing I missed during the process of making this image is a way to warp and tilt objects. Perhaps I'm just missing something. 

Anyway, I think I'd be confident to present vector artwork files to my illustration clients at this stage.  I tried to go digital in the early naughties with a program called Painter but it was a disaster for me -I was trying to use the program like natural media and the quality plummeted!

 

I've also attached the initial scamp which was also done in AD in the Pixel Persona using my Wacom Bamboo tablet.

More detail added to the buildings in the mid-ground and presented as a (spoof) book cover.
