I took an online class DKNG Studios and below is the outcome. For this project, I choose to create a wolf as my geometric animal. The below images show the process of sketching, bring it into illustrator and creating an illustrating using basic tools.
I started with a thumbnail quick sketch of the basic elements that I had collected form photos and research. After that drew it out half an A4 paper and reflected it on illustrator. I went for a very symmetrical frontal view as suggested by DKNG Studios. I used very geometrical shapes trying to avoid curves which I think suited the Wolf image.
