Illustrated Tribute to Steven Spielberg

As I continue to refine my illustration skills to digital equivalents of my hand skills I keep experimenting with techniques. One of the great places I get to try different exercises is with Planet Pulp’s rogues gallery challenges every month. I was honored to be part of the crew this year and have been trying new ideas out every month since I joined up.

This month was a tribute to Steven Spielberg so all of his work was fair game and I thought I would play with Indiana Jones. The first image is a vector spot illustration with a nod back to classic illustrators I studied over the years.

The second piece is the same image, but interpreted as an attempt to paint using the digital bitmap tools I have available to me.
