Fairy-Tale Mash-Up sketch: http://sarahmaeschmidt.blogspot.com/2012/10/fairy-tale-mashup.html
First, I took the drawing I made into Photoshop and blocked out the basic shapes I needed with the magic wand. I took those shapes into Illustrator where I live traced them and cleaned them up with the pen tool. I took these new shapes and created new layers of shadows and highlights with the knife tool (my favorite tool ever). After I was done, I took the clean vector graphic into Photoshop and created a background using a combination of layers and layers of paint as well as miscellaneous stock photography that I had photographed and saved to my hard drive. Voila! Space Bear!
