Using Illustrator for textures
Has anyone done this for more complex shapes? I attached an image of the texture I am about to create.
1. I am not using the photo as the texture because there are highlights and reflections I do not want baked into the texture.
2. I was going to just paint this all in PS (would be pretty quick using the photo as a backdrop), but was thinking of making it in Illustrator too.
So the question is. If it was you, would you just paint the texture in PS or create it using Illustrator to have the Vector format saved? It's easier to reduce or increase texture resolution using vectors, but far more time consuming.
