With each design I complete using the Pen Tool I learn so many new things and I think I am finally beginning to feel comfortable with it. I spent much more time on this project than I probably should have haha..
I love this drawing by Garance Dore:
& this is my version:
If only I could draw as fabulously as Garance… Mine is much more cartoon-ish. To make my design I traced this image of myself by hand using the Pen Tool:
I adjusted certain features and then Live Traced the drawing to get the “photocopied” sort of look. I thought the pink lips were a cute addition! To create the cursive text, I wrote “Practice Makes Perfect” on a piece of paper:
Then I used the Live Trace function to isolate my text & I changed the fill to improve the appearance.
So ready to work on something new, maybe it’s time for a new blog banner!
