Planning the Project

Illustrating in Illustrator is done a thousand different ways, for a million purposes. That being the case, there isn't much I can impart in the way of planning considerations for an illustration. There are just too many possible scenarios in which you would choose to illustrate—realism or any other style. Yes, you can use the photo I've provided—that's why I've provided it. However, this is an intricate and deep project—think hours and days, not minutes. If you're going to put that much effort into a project, wouldn't you rather do it with a subject that has relevance to you—on the job or personally?

Because the conceptual planning steps for a project like this are sparse, it affords us a unique and excellent opportunity for a primer on copyright for the creative professional—which is exceedingly relevant to this project.
