This is a self-directed project on how cell phones are key objects of forensic evidence in criminal investigations. I used this subject as a jumping-off point to practice using hard shapes and artful textures.
I like to start with hand-drawn lines. Even if I don't use them in my final illustration, I feel like the characteristics of hand-drawn lines comes through within the digital painting and manipulation.
These are a few of the textures I created to make this illustration. Some spray paint, painted fills and rough paper.
