Even though my Illustrator 101 week one homework wasn’t due until today, I finished all of the instruction and submitted my assignments for week two already. We were supposed to design an invitation or greeting card. I’ve been excited about converting my iPad (Paper by 53) sketches into Illustrator, so this was a perfect excuse.
I originally drew a quick sketch of this bird on my iPad using Paper by 53. I posted it on here a while ago. I am taking the Illustrator 101 class with Nicole’s Classes and we went over the pen + pencil tools in the most recent lesson. I decided to give it a try and “recreate” my bird using Illustrator. I’m pretty happy with the end result. I think that I’m really going to enjoy my new hobby!

I love messing around with the Paper app on my iPad. I used to draw a lot when I was little, but somewhere down the line I stopped. This app has really helped me get back in touch with my creative side. These are just a few “heroes” that I drew…and some guy who looks like a broke Robin Hood. I tend to just make random lines/shapes on the “paper” until it looks like a part of something recognizable, then I start to draw it. I know it’s not the way you’re supposed to do it, but it’s not like I’m a professional. I’m glad that I am getting back in to drawing. I’ve really missed it.
