Exercise: Cardinal Thoughts

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 4.24.18 PM

Exercise was to recreate a cardinal based on a given template. I used the shape tools to trace the bird and make three copies of it. Afterwards I used the shape tool to make some glasses, and added some pattern to make them ‘hip burds’.

This exercise was more of a refresher course for me, as I have a lot of experience with shape tools and paths in Photoshop and Illustrator already. However, the pathfinder tool was new for me, and it’s something I had been looking for in Illustrator for quite a while.
