Smooth Sailing

Smooth Sailing - student project

I really liked some of the textured badges shown during the inspiration video so I thought I would try my hand at that.

Here is my notebook sketch, usually I do more but I really wanted to get into it on the computer.

Next, working in Illustrator creating the shapes and getting the colors I want:

Then Photo shop with brush settings and organized layers (I found I didn't need to name the texture layers since the colors ere changed and they were indented directly above the layer that they affect.)

And finally flat vs texture

Some edits after feedback from the Teach:

And then a second badge I made keeping with a similar theme:
