|The first version, painted in Corel Painter 11.|
I painted this illustration in Corel Painter 11 and then played around with it a bit, creating a new version by tweaking it in Photoshop using a Mister Retro filter to give it a sort of aged graphic feel. I then imported that version into Illustrator where, using the 'Trace' feature, I turned it into a vector image which simplified the shapes. I saved that image as a tif file and then reopened it in Photoshop where I adjusted the colors.
