I am trying to figure out the best way to approach drawings like this? I have tried the scribble tool, but I cannot get the color changes within the scribble. Also, the text looks hand drawn and it has white around it. I would like to make drawings like this that appear to be hand drawn and filled in, all by hand. Does anyone have any sugesstions?
You could have the white halo around the text and you could somehow imitate a vague impression of this in Illustrator by assigning a brush stroke to the scribble lines. But it will never look hand-made
They may be hand drawn and I think they are hand drawn, but you definitely can do that in Illustrator as well. What you cannot do is to merely hit one or two buttons in order to get that hand drawn on a sheet of paper impression. Thus, it's also a question about how many time, experiments and knowledge you're going to invest in order to create it in programmes like Illustrator.
That is EXACTLY what I am looking for! Now i am a noob, but have CS5.5 Master Suite...would you mind giving me a brief overview of how you did it? Im learning how to do all of this! I dont know all of the tools and effects yet.
