mini challenge

Illustrator’s journey 1

Recently, I have been thinking about revamping my graphic design skills. I haven’t used Adobe Illustrator in nearly 1 year so I decided to take it slowly and start again from scratch by watching tutorials. I forgot how to use most of the tools and most importantly, I am super slow when creating vector graphics – definitely need to change that.

So yesterday I did my first batch and for the sake of accountability I will post my outputs here, hopefully noticing some improvements.

First I played around with some tools, then I decided that the color combination was ugly, so I tried to match them better, creating a night scene.

Then I moved on to character drawings. I used the X tool and X tool and applied more degrades within the character to create depth. I finished by applying some masking effect to add texture.
