Hobbies and Such

Hobbies and Such - student project

I really enjoyed this class and as a beginner, I learned so much about using Photoshop - paths, smart objects, alpha channels, etc. I am very new to this illustration world but I have always had an interest in art and design.  So thank you Tom for encouraging me to dive in!

My original illustration was a bit different. I decided to forgo the shoes as it was tough for me to do in one sitting. The inky bits were really fun to make and I also downloaded one more screen print style texture from the web.  A scanner is not something I have access to so I took all the pictures with my iPhone and worked with those images. I will consider buying a scanner for more work in the future.

All in all, I feel there are things I can make better but I am happy with the end product. Hope everyone likes it too!

I can't wait to make more. I am already thinking about this technique for a lovely Christmas card.
