This is my first attempt at creating something other than sign graphics (used to work for a sign company) in Illustrator. The image is from a drawing I had done. I modified it and changed it a bit and made the face more alien. It takes a while to get used to the brushes and layers. I followed a tutorial in Digital Arts magazine which was very handy.
Software: Adobe Illustrator CS4.
Scanner: CanoScan LiDE 700F
