Wednesday 6th April 2011 - Vectors

At uni we were told that for our current assignment we need to be able to use Adobe Illustrator to vector some of our designs. Thankfully, I introduced myself to illustrator about 18 months ago, and made this:

Yeah, it's the feather symbol from CS2. I followed a tutorial, getting an idea for how to path things and so forth. Then, as part of my final piece for my foundation course I made:

Very inspired by Shepard Fairey.

But that, as said, was all almost a year ago. So, instead of going to the workshops at uni which would be slow and arduous, I decided to have a go at vectoring again under my own volition.

Sigil of Baphomet. My first vector in 11 months.

A viking icon, something finished this morning. Each separate block of white is it's own path... Time consuming!

And the finished deal, gradients and stuff added over a clipping mask.
