Here's the First Mate from the Sky Pirates game I worked on for Cadillac Jack Games last
year. The gears and some of the frame elements were created in Adobe
Illustrator before putting them in Photoshop for final paint and FX.
She was painted entirely in Photoshop. Although I usually prefer to
paint everything without using a lot of Photoshop FX, I chose to use
Bevels and Gradient Overlays for the gear elements so that they would
remain flexible for the animation process. I included a couple of detail shots this time.
