Still drawing – just differently ……….

I’ve just attended my first Adobe Illustrator course (seriously need this skill for work).  Wow, masses to learn.  After 7 hours tuition I reckon I’ve almost scratched the surface.

Daunted?  Hell, yes!
Excited?  Definitely!
Know what I’m doing?  Not even remotely – but still having fun!
Ready for the next class?  Err…. no, but let’s do it anyway!

Results from my first day (and, yes, I’ll accept any and all encouragement from anyone reading this):Super happy with my ‘floating’ ball – even got a decent shadow.

Huh, UFOs!  Gradients inside gradients.  Loving it.

Resizing, duplicating and shading.  Did I do that (yep, with a lot of guidance)?  Can I do it again?  Well, I’d better try.

It’s a long way from here to designing files for the office but we all have to start somewhere.
