Since this week we were supposed to be assembling our portfolios and getting our web portfolio ready for a grade, I decided to have some fun. I felt like what I had to put in my portfolio is ‘okay’, but I’m lacking in the amount of things I can say I’m actually excited about. This started out as a picture of my daughter goofing around. I opened it in Illustrator and did some tracing with the pen tool, and colored in a few things. I found out once I exported it into Photoshop for finishing touches that it needed some color shifting and a lot of improvement. I really, really love texture. I don’t really care for flat cartoony images, and the texture helps provide a nice balance to make the image not as harsh.
