So here is my project! Keep in mind you guys don't have to be as detailed as mine, but if you can, I'd love to see your process and your thoughts throughout. 

Reference Pins:
I've really been inspired by so many of my favourite artists who have been making this small soft enamel pins. So I've got a pretty good reference board for you all to look at. Feel free to use any of mine for your references too! Whatever inspires you!



My Favourite Apple Metal Pin:

I'm not sure who the artist is that made this pin, but I'd love to know how big it is. They managed to fit an impressive amount of detail in a small pin.

I got this from their website at www.applemetalcn.com. Please note that you can get a quick and easy quote by e-mailing Apple at [email protected]


Rough Sketches:
Here are my rough sketches for both of my pin designs. As you can see, I'm not interested in having perfect sketches to base my designs off of. I'm just looking to get down enough information that I can remember what I was thinking when I drew it. Just enough to get the idea across.

Of course, this is my approach when I know I'm making perfect vector versions of my artwork. For a lot of my illustrations I actually draw them out as perfectly as I can before I bring them into illustrator. I often even want them to stay hand drawn looking rather than perfect vector shapes. It just depends on the look you are after.


My Final Pins:
These are my final pins I sent to Apple Metal to produce. I was really happy with how they turned out. 



My Real Pins:
As you can see, my final pins turned out amazing! I couldn't be more impressed with the quality. These are hands down the coolest things I've made. I plan to make more designs in the near future.


That's it!

I hope you all enjoyed seeing my process and the class itself. You can purchase my pins from my Etsy shop by going to www.JonBrommet.com.
