Starting with Photoshop or Illustrator on Spacecat?

Hi guys! Great videos on video game design. I see you guys are making the game illustration with Photoshop first then Illustrator. Could the artwork be achieved with only Illustrator or Sketch? Thanks.

I'm sure that it could also be achieved with a combination of other vector programs, however raster image manipulation is not great in illustrator and Sketch is extremely light weight when it comes to vector manipulation. It all comes down to building your tool kit and knowing the pros and cons of each tool. :)

Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer are two alternatives as well.

Thank you Jacob!
