Nerdy Robot

Hi Everyone!  I finished watching the class videos and can't wait to start designing my pin!  I have no clue what I'm going to create at the moment but I had a lot of fun looking at pins online.

STEP 1:  MY FAVORITE REFERENCE PINS

I created a new Pinterest board to keep track of my inspiration.  I can't believe how many fun pins are out there!

Here is a link to the full board:   https://www.pinterest.com/treemanjake/design-pins/

And here is a quick snapshot:

STEP 2:  MY FAVORITE APPLE METAL PIN

I found this cute dinosaur pin on Apple Metal's website: http://www.applemetalcn.com/.  I'm a sucker for dinosaurs and I love it!

STEP 3:  MY ROUGH SKETCHES

I decided to play around with a robot pin design.  Here are some of my sketches.  I'm currently trying to decide between cute, nerdy or "angry retro" styles... but I'm leaning towards the nerdy one :-)

After I created some rough sketches, I started playing around with the designs in Illustrator:

And then I started playing around with color:

Thank you very much for this class!  I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot of tips that I'm sure I will use all the time now!
