Finnished vector from the previous sketches, some of you preffer the actual sketches but it had to be worked up in vector for different applications of the illustration.
I started this with a few sketches then scanned them in and used them as a refference in adobe illustrator. All the flourishes have been researched and redrawn in illustrator, so no brushes (not that theres anything wrong with that, I just like to have more control).
This is the longest i've worked on this sort of thing, mainly because it was a commision from wirestyle for funkrush.com
Some of you have mentioned that this kind of illustration is similar to what si scott does, I've never been dishonest about this as I mentioned him the first time I submitted something in this style. Having said that I am keen to develop away from it.
