First encounter with the brush tool in Illustrator. I started out with the Pen tool so as far as with Illustrator, I was not used to the uncontrolled lines. -- tracing of a photo I took of a sculpture
I am slowly getting used to the brush tool and I am playing around with the pressure settings as can be seen in her hair - random stock photo of a child that made its way to my CPU
this was a little weird because, in drawing myself, whenever I hid the photo backgound I kept seeing all that was wrong - probably an internal thing with self... anyway, this was another study with the pressure seneitivity and trying to figure how to interpret my hair - tracing of a photo of myself
