Illustration by Yukio Miyamoto
You have to see these images to believe them!
By using the gradient mesh tool, Miyamoto-san brings 3D life to 2D drawings. In some instances he uses the pen tool to trace a photo of the subject on a separate layer. He then adds his blends, colors, lines, and shading for a truly remarkable finished product.
