Update time. I’ve spent the entire summer doing a graphics internship in which I probably can’t care to share online without client permission. It was pretty near full time and each day left me coming home pretty damn exhausted, too exhausted to be awake long enough to illustrate things I like. Inspiration during that time was lacking a lot as well. but any-who.
I pretty had nothing to do on my last day of my internship, so I spent most of that day coming up with a brand identity for myself that I can actually be satisfied with (still ongoing) And one of the ideas that popped up was a star guiding a lost sailor to their destination. I already have a cheesy tagline to describe myself written down.
And then I figured that would look pretty damn good as an illustration on its own so I made it.
It was pretty simple to make. Just used some rough pen tool and a scatter brush to make the main parts. I also recently discovered my new favourite resource for texture patterns (http://subtlepatterns.com/) and utilized those and will utilize those as often as I can now.
Took me about 3 hours on and off to finish this one, a bit quick. But sometimes I feel the less time you spend on a drawing can make it look better than if you spend days adjusting things pixel by pixel. Sometime imperfections are what makes something special.
