Layer-art is Outta this World

Layer-art is Outta this World - student project

I happened upon this class the other night while looking for something new to learn in Illustrator and this class was just what I needed. Fun and easy to do, I got over some creativity block and loved doing it.

I followed along with the videos, creating the base grayscale version. This was my first time testing out the warp tool and I had a lot of fun with the shapes I was creating.
