Found a great series of Illustrator tutorials on You Tube, by a talented guy named Clay Butler. Including the rough sketch, this took me about half an hour. Of course, for some unknown reason my program crashed and I had to restart, but even including that bump, I'd say it was closer to 40-45 minutes. I have to practice his technique more, but I am always happy to add to my skills.As a favor to my artist friends who use Illustrator, here is the link to Clay's site. Enjoy!
