Painting a Farm Boy

This is my first successful painted line art in Illustrator after spending many hours learning it. The line art was originally hand drawn then converted into vector.
This technique has it's pros and cons. I still feel it's pretty limited. At least in the way, I like to work.
Although I really like the options and the allowance for easy editing I can't get the same softness in blends you can get with photoshop. It definitely provides the comic book, coloring book feel. I can see how vector artists can really get into it.
So, I guess it's a matter of taste and preference, depending on what the art is going to be used for. I'm just trying it all to find out how I want to define my work. There will be times I'll need to use it and times I won't.
