Hi Everyone! So I wanted to share with a little bit of the progress I have been making in illustrator. For those of you who don’t know Adobe illustrator is a vector based graphics program and is great for making logos, graphic design, surface patterns etc. I took a Lynda.com class a few weeks back to just get a basic overview of the program and its capabilities which was great albeit 9 hours or something ridiculous. Then I saw that Bonnie Christine was doing a CreativeLive class on illustrator with specifics in pattern design (I watched it live so it was free). I don’t necessarily want to learn illustrator surface patterns at this point, but I knew I could get some more specific instruction in the area that I want to use it for. It was awesome! I learned so much and feel like I have a good grasp of illustrator now. Although I still need lots of practice. I made the blog banner at the top in illustrator and here are a few other things I have made. Do you know illustrator? Photoshop? Photoshop is next on my list, but I want to get a little better at illustrator first. I am going to submit some work to the design challenge Bonnie is hosting in a few weeks, wish me luck! I have a lot of work to do!
This is all the same flower just colored differently. Don’t they each look so different!
Another thing I have been learning is how to make color palettes. This is my son several years ago when we lived in Hawaii.
Here is a spider mum flower I made.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Check back tomorrow for Feature Friday!
