I have this logo design I'm doing for an old friend. I thought I would show you all my process.
Here's the pencil sketch
I'll take this into Illustrator and retrace it
I opened the picture in Illustrator and went to layers and made it a template. then made a new layer and began tracing it with the pen tool
That's one nice pencil sketch!
loco what are the advantages of making the file a template in illustrator?
I use to trace on the same layer never knowing about the template layer.
It helps keeping them seperate layers. The advantage for me is I trace with the pen tool layer in outlines (Ctrl Y) then the image I'm tracing is a ghost layer.
This is how I have my layers set up while I trace
very cool thanks!
That's some good logoin'
Still a work in progress but, here's what I have so far
right on! coming along
