I was pretty stumped as to what to draw because I always want something unique, not the usual. But, everything I considered was too complex and too complicated for my drawing skills.
Then I remembered Brenda Bakker’s post on abstract art in Instagram. I could combine that with Jennifer Nichols new Selection Tool Animal Illustration to get the texture into the abstract through the selection tool.
Then I subtracted floral and leave outlines from those abstract shapes using the floral assets I created for my Warm Up idea.
Finally, I added text with the strategies from Jennifer’s Typography Class on Skillshare.
This was a fun way to play around and practice a few skills:
- apply textural brushes using the select tool,
- “selecting” outline shapes and “cutting” from a textured layer,
- arranging the layers using different blend modes for different effects.
Go ahead try it. Here’s my practice video:
