WIP Wednesday

I've been working on a retro camera icon/illustration set. They started out as sketches that I did in pen and ink, scanned in and cleaned up in Photoshop. I tried using the Auto Trace option in Illustrator but I wasn't happy with the results. Hand drawn retro cameras

I wasn't really happy with how they looked (maybe since they were blown up the flaws were more obvious?) so I decided to trace them in Illustrator.


I liked how clean they looked but I missed the "hand drawn" appeal of the original sketches. Back to the drawing board!

Traced cameras using custom brushes in Illustrator

I liked how these started turning out. I will probably combine these with the colored versions above for the finished set. I had to create quite a few custom brushes for this set.
