Assignment in my digital art class at CSUMB's Science Illustration graduate program.
This time it's a technical drawing of a man-made object, so I chose my favorite mouse - my Logitech trackman. <3 I'm so disappointed the newer models lack the nifty LEDs and feel so cheaply made in comparison. This one of mine works just fine and still has great response. It's been used so much the paint on the palm portion has worn away though... But I didn't draw that because I wanted it shiny new again!
Lineart made in Illustrator and the rest colored and composed in Photoshop...using this mouse! (No tablet used!) I had to take lots and lots of reference photos of it, and that's my hand I traced on top of it as well lol. Minimal painting was required - most of it is gradients, layer styles, and assorted vector masks.
The dots on the trackball were painted by hand though, and then the spherize filter used to give them dimension. I used a coquille paper texture on the body and warped an existing Logitech logo onto it as well. Art copyright me. For display only. Please do not use without my permission.
