Pen Tool Usage

By using Adobe Photoshop to clean up the scan of a handrawn Mr. Yoks, (make it pure black and white, refine the edges a bit) and running Adobe Illustrator CS5.1’s livetrace feature, taking that and setting (and locking) that as a guide for the pen tool, I created this super crisp drawing. I am constantly impressed with technology. I am impressed with how oblivious I was of this combination of features to make something truly sharp (what I see in my mind when I set out to make the drawings.)
