Learning Illustrator Software ~ Spiral Fantasy
I am back at class this Spring Semester taking a Digital Imaging class using Illustrator CS6. The class isn't just about learning software. The class focus is on creating art. So all the theory, techniques and skills come together with a new tool ... digital imaging. While the software learning curve is steep, I am beginning to see how I can apply this technology to my work.
Spiral Fantasy 1
Spiral Fantasy 2
Our first assignment was to create a Fantasy Landscape. I imported a scanned image of an original piece of work. Within Illustrator, I then reworked the image changing color and some texture. Being challenged to push beyond what I know is a source of inspiration.
Spiral Fantasy 2 ~ Red
On "Fantasy 2" Redo more blue was added to the inner circle. With the addition the piece seems to have greater movement and dimension. Amazing how a small adjustment can change the direction of a piece. I am now loving Illustrator!
