Chopped Cone

I started out by using the Pen tool for the base of the cone and then moved into shapes for the rest of the cone pieces, which was really useful. For the top of the Ice Cream I used the Blob Brush which I had never used before, but now it might be my favorite illustrator tool, it made complex shapes much easier. For all of the waffle cone indents I made squares with the pen tool and then added a drop shadow. I attempted to use the Illustrator bitmap texture technique but found it less attractive than doing my texturing in photoshop, maybe I'll try again with more success on my next project.
