Soo I drew this a while ago but only just had the chance to upload and blog about this to my website – so here it is! This is a pure vector made with paths and gradients in Illustrator, and is quite a break from the usual mixed media stuff I do. I just really wanted to do more vectors and I also wanted to try draw a really awesome cake
Drawing vectors takes me so long now to do; not that it was ever easy, but adjusting a multitude of points and lines does take a while! I haven’t really had much time to do more vectors although I really want to – I’ve just grown so attached to using my tablet! It’s just..so good. I seriously can’t believe how much faster I can do things with it. And not only that, I’m pretty sure my art has improved DRAMATICALLY since using it.
I’ve been using this program called Paint Tool SAI more lately – it’s really popular on DeviantART and in Japan for anime/manga stuff. It has so many amazingly awesome features though, I really have to blog about it later because Adobe need to step up their game if they want to compete with other programs now. It has elements of both Photoshop and Illustrator which is just so much more intuitive, and it’s a mere 50 bucks. Dirt cheap compared to the Adobe programs which are easily over 1K. xD
Oh yeah – I ALSO HAVE A STORE NOW!! If you’ve ever wanted to buy a print you now can. It’s not all mass produced either as I am organising all the printing/shipping etc. So your supoort is much appreciated I hope to add more stuff to the store soon – I just need to figure out what I want to design next!
