Hey there! My name is Trevor Hernandez and I'm an Graphic Design student. So for my project the animal that I decided to illustrate was a wolf. I started out with finding some reference photos of wolves f and then also looking at some other wolf illustrations as well as some decorative patterns.
From there I started sketching and came up with this for my final sketch.
From there are took my sketch into illustrator and started creating shapes the shapes that I had.
Adding a more detail.
After I thought that I had gotten all of the main basic shapes done and in the way I wanted them I started to add some detail. Also in this step I decided that I didn't like how long the snout of my wolf was so I shortened it.
After making some final adjustments and adding a background, I stated adding some shading.
Finally for some last touches I add some texture to both the wolf and background.
I had a great time work on this project! If anyone has feed back that would be super appreciated! Thanks for looking!
