The subject of this image was very fond of the fish he caught. He wanted it imortalised into a cool illustration.
Adobe Illustrator was used to carefully trace around every contour. To keep a modern feel to the image, only block colours were used. All sense of material warping and folding was achieved with simple lines.
I’m especially happy with the hair of the guy in this image. It can be very theraputic tracing around spiky or messy hair.
I’m not sure whether the man and fish are still together, I may have heard a rumour that they bought a house and were trying for kids. I wish them and their nmermaid offspring well.
