Just a tiny minimalistic pencil, drawn in under a minute in Fireworks… :)

    Amazing. In under a minute? Seriously? Do you use a mouse or a drawing pad? Just curious.

    OK, I have to admit that the time is close to 2 minutes 30 seconds — I just re-did the pencil from scratch (made a similar looking one), and it took a bit more than 2 minutes, including making the pencil body and adding the shadow…

    I did not use a mouse or a tablet, but a TrackPoint (I am working a lot on a ThinkPad). The illustration is full-vector, created in Adobe Fireworks. The speed of Fireworks combined with the power (and ease-of-use) of the TrackPoint allows me to work very fast… :)
