For my project, I chose to illustrate some objects I use on a daily basis as an illustrator.
I started loose and rough with some sketches (using pen and paper).
2. Tracing in Illustrator
I scanned my sketches and then traced them in Illustrator using the Pen tool and some basic shapes.
3. Making shapes and adding color
I refined some of my shapes and closed others with the Shape Builder tool and then added a simple 4 color palette to the artwork.
4. Adding texture and grain detail
I used the custom set of art brushes I showed you how to make in the class to texture the edges of my shapes and then added grain with my scatter brushes. Finally, I changed the composition a little.
