Very first attempt using Illustrator!

Very first attempt using Illustrator!  - student project

So, this was my very first attempt using Illustrator, and it was more difficult than I thought haha! Since I started from 0, sometimes the steps were a bit too fast in the classes, but with some help from people here I managed, more or less! *blushing proudly* :) 

1) Some reference pins:

Frida Kahlo pin: I absolutely LOVE this style and these colours.

Random collection: I like these (except for the hamburger one), love the combination of sweet pastel colours with a not-so-sweet message.


2) Favorite Apple Metal pins:

Coincidently my two favourites are next to each other on their website: the dinosaur is cute and I like the simple but funny design, the decadence one has cool colours and I like the 80´s style. 

3) Sketching my pin:

Since I had/have no idea about Illustrator, I wanted to start with simple, single lines. Didn't sketch much more than this, since I had already used this design for something else, I just drew it again without any extra details. 

4) The Final Result!

With this project I got some help and extra explanations for some steps that I didn't quite understand from the classes, and I kept the design very basic to not complicate things. I'm learning and this was great practise, but no need to overcomplicate life haha!
