This was a quick illustration - practise in using the pencil tool and the blob brush in Adobe Illustrator. I slightly rushed the hands, but I was more interested in the shirt - using blend layers and opacity to create a layered slightly water colour effect. The map was fun to create - the land level was made using the pen tool, the "extruded" side was done really quickly with the blob brush on the immediate layer below - a nice hand drawn effect. The shadow of the body on the map again is a layer with a black-filled shape, blend mode was multiply and opacity set around 40%. This is a recreation of a piece that caught my eye which I saw on the Internet and I admired the style, which is often found in current news print media.
