Project 2 in November!

I feel like a total ass for turning this project in soooo late, but I did it!     

I learned a lot quickly about using Illustrator with this project.  I had to create 3 images from the scissors I drew in my earlier blog.  The images are close up of various parts of the scissors, so that you may or may not be able to recognize that they are scissors.

I spent the most time on the first image (artboard).  Coloring in the black was sooooo hard at first, but then as I moved to the next board I realized how I could make things much easier just reducing things to shapes.  When you are used to pen and paper and paint and charcoal for drawing, its daunting to figure out how to make what you do translate over into a computer program.  But the second board made me realize that the fundamentals are the same.  Reduce the images to shapes and build on that.  By the time I got to the third board I felt way more comfortable and was able to maneuver through much faster.  Well…here is my first project using Adobe Illustrator…
