I had the great opportunity to be a part of Adobe Live. During the live stream I was illustrating a sports still life. During the stream you can see my process such as sketching, color blocking, rendering and some finishing touches that makes the artwork pop.
This is what my sketching process look like
After I've decided what colors I want to use I start blocking all the colors
When the color blocking is done I start rendering. This is the part in my process that takes the longest time
After the hours of rendering I add shadows, highlights and texture to make the illustration pop
