Happy Valentine's Day everyone, hope this makes you guys smile.

I sketched out the heart on paper and then took a picture and manipulated it in Photoshop and Illustrator. Took about 3 hours.

So this is kind of a long explanation... sorry...

Starting with the drawing I sketched in my sketchbook with pencil and then when I got it the way I liked, used ink. I took a photo with my phone, and then took the piece to photoshop, used the magic wand to select and delete the background.

From there I could have simply brushed in black to make it even and put in a white background, but I'm a perfectionist and took the image to illustrator and traced the heart (using Object > Live Trace > Trace and Expand) so that I could clean up the lines with the pen tool.
