I applaud you good sir. That's fantastic.
@pakattak: I mainly use the pen tool for creating shapes and then I fill them in with various texture brushes. I don't like Illustrator much although I'm sure a large part of that is due to the fact that I'm not very fluent with it - I just know exactly how to achieve certain effects in Photoshop that would take me a long time to figure out in Illustrator.
@humanity I love these! The idea of Jeff hanging around in games and being a third wheel is so cool. If you're looking for ideas for future ones I think XCOM, Syndicate, any Call of Duty, Persona, or any driving game would work well.
Illustrator is great for making shapes like that much quicker than photoshop, but if you are more comfortable with photoshop I say stick with it because you'll end up saving time by doing it all as one piece.
These are awesome! I really love drawing style. Do you mind me asking how do you do these?
It's kinda hard to explain how I do it as it's not like a formula. I use photoshop and charcoal-ish brushes.
I made a small sketch and then 3-4 hours later it was finished.
That IS a small sketch indeed. I was surprised it's Photoshop and chalk brushes. It has a little Adobe Illustrator feeling to it. I guess that's from the hard edges and the lasso selections you made . Looking good and nice topic/idea!
Excellent, excellent work.
The cool part was drawing this before the game came out and then seeing if my idea of the heist would be realized in-game. I was pretty close, although they don't smash through the front with a truck, they do rob a jewelry store and it kind of looks similar.
