This really was a great project! I had a lot of fun creating each shape without using the pen tool.

For this project I started with a really quick sketch and then went straight into Adobe Illustrator. I did not scan in the sketch or use it as a base this time as I felt that it would keep me from really trying new shapes. I tried to utilize every new technique that I learned in the course when creating the shapes. Basically, I just dove in and had fun.

I learned a lot about creating organic shapes and was able to go beyond what I had been able to accomplish in the past. 

Next step...texture!!!
