Blue Boy by xeophin-net Blue Boy by xeophin-net
I hate Illustrator. I really hate it. Yet it has those cool gradient meshes that make for great effects, but are themselves a pain in the a*** to use. But as Illustrator doesn't get gradients done by FreeHand, this was the only way to go.

The illustration was done for a poster. First intended just to show my "customers" how vector illustration would look, they decided that the boy was looking good enough to appear on the poster. So I cleaned it up, changed colour and added the final text in InDesign.

This is a version without the text and a slightly different placement than the poster that's going to print.

Original traced in FreeHand and coloured in Illustrator.

*LOL* this was bound to come up. Yes, I know, I've been told before: the hands look strange basically because I got lazy and decided not to shade them after all, there will be text and logos printer over them.

But true, flat like this they kinda fall out of the picture.
