I had fun with my illustration by exploring different shapes and keeping it simple. I enjoyed seeing how my overlapping shapes created new colors and became part of my color palette. I might do another version with brighter colors but wanted more of an earthy/desert feel.
I used my Bamboo Wacom tablet in combination with the Dynamic Sketch tool and mainly the pencil tool in Illustrator. The "spatter" filter in Photopshop is a great way to add some subtle texture to my illustrations!
