This is the progress of steps 1 through 8. I didn't have a plan in mind, but after using the warp tool on my oval... the accidental octopus has inspired a pun-tastic design. I'll stay within that theme, and we'll see where the warp tool takes me next!
Here's typography before & after! Didn't spend too much time on this, but it fun trying to get some dough-y movement with the words.
Here's my "cute character," that could be a baby girl pea? Who knows, but it was fun to make!
I changed the direction of my project, now it's space! Having lots of fun with making the planets all groovy. I'm still in the early stages of it, but I'm liking the direction so far. :)
