Bob Marley - Vector



***No Pixels were harmed in the creation of this image. It is 100% resolution independent using various vector based tools available in Illustrator CS5***

Another Gradient Mesh portrait; this time of Bob Marley. This one was kind of a labor of love for me, as he is probably my favorite musician of all time. I started it up back in March and have been slowing adding to it every couple of nights.

Tools Used:
Adobe Illustrator CS5
Shape Tool
Gradient Mesh Tool
Warp with Mesh Tool
Brush Tool
Mesh Tormentor
Wacom Intuos 2

Very good job. I wish he was still alive. The world would be a much more positive place if he was still around
