Daily Quick Sketch: Lil' Fish

Lil' Fish

Below is a little sketch I did while testing Illustrator as a inking program. I generally use ArtRage Pro for my black pen lines. I find the control and flexible of the line weight to be far better than any other program I use. But ArtRage is a bitmap program and I wanted to see how a vector program would handle the line work.
So I'm testing it in Illustrator CS6.

The Pros: Drawing in vector form allows more control of adjusting line thickness. The instant color fill of areas makes coloring way more cleaner, easier and faster.

The Cons: the touch response of the pen on the stylus isn't as smooth as I would like, and I find the interface of Illustrator still lacks the ease of selecting specific parts of an image.
