Illustrating with vectors and pixels

Luke O'Neill takes advantage of Illustrator and Photoshop's strong points to create his work of dark art.

Both Illustrator and Photoshop have their strengths: Illustrator enables the user to draw perfect vector lines with no loss of detail, while with Photoshop you can bend and manipulate any image at will.

Although both applications can be used on their own to create artwork, I find that the combination of the two often results in more visually interesting work.

In this tutorial I will show you how I utilised the core strengths of both Illustrator and Photoshop to create a piece of work that fuses very precise vector shapes with organic Photoshop effects and handmade elements.
