Illustration of a flying pig with a jet pack.

This was a fun little illustration that I did with the intent of selling on iStock as a raster image. Raster images are sold under the “image” category on iStock which until recently I had thought was only for photographs. I’d like to get into raster illustrations on iStock because I can crank them out more quickly than I can create vector illustrations. I need a couple more illustrations to apply to this category. I created the illustration beginning with a sketch using Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile, an app I bought for my ipod touch. I finished the final illustration using Corel Painter 12 and my Wacom Cintiq. Painter is new to me and I am in the process of getting used to its features.

I hope this image will sell well because it visualizes the abstract concept of unlikelihood, and images that deal with abstract concepts are supposed to be in demand. It will be interesting to test this hypothesis. Like the Penguin Tank, this illustration was inspired by a conversation with my friend Carrie Walker several months ago. I’m just now getting around to finishing it. Thanks, Carrie!
