3,401: Billy and Cyndi

I’ve been playing with Adobe Illustrator for about a month now. Things feel a lot better than they did when I did those early drawings. Learning new little things now is nice. Those new things slide into the workflow easier because I’ve got the basics down. And I’m at a point where learning more stuff feels like something I want to do, rather than the initial process of learning feeling like something I should do.

And over the last few days a shift happened in a process I’ve been thinking about, playing with, for a few months: making pixelly work with a few extra elements, a few more curves, not as strict a view of how things should look. I did some stuff like that mostly in Photoshop, but also with Procreate. But over the last few days, my instinct was to open Illustrator to do those things. This is something I’ve been looking forward to: Illustrator being a tool that is the first one I reach for in a project.

I could have done these drawings in Photoshop. I might’ve been a bit quicker at them in Photoshop, but the whole process was easier in Illustrator. Especially when changing things in and out. Not having to deal with layers is such a joy in the trying-things-out process.

Here’s a dog and a cat.
