Using the pen tool as been one of my biggest struggles with Illustrator. After this class I won't say I feel like a pro, but I'm a lot more comfortable using it. Thanks, Helen!
For my project I combined what Helen taught with inspiration I got from other student projects, so thank you all!!
I mostly wear my hair up whenever I leave the house (unless I'm wearing a toque), so I wanted to try illustrate that. The hair might be looking a bit too flat compared with some of the detail I added on the face, so I might try to tweak it later on, but for now I'm calling this done.
ps. the lipstick colour is inspired by my favourite MAC lipstick: Heroine.
