Sample Project

For my project I decided to go with a magical, Nordic sword.

After looking through some references, I came up with the following sketch:


Once I had a good grasp on what I wanted to illustrate I moved into Illustrator. I started out with just shades of grey to build my weapon. Here's what I came up with:


Next up, I added colour. It took a bit of playing around to get the colours that I liked but I settled on the following:


Finally, I whipped out the gradients, effects and details to make my sword more dynamic. I even added some depth to the background to complete the piece!


I hope you guys enjoyed the class and I can't wait to see what you come up with :) Happy illustrating!
