My pets, particularly these pets that I had at the time, helped me get through tough times. I wouldn’t have been the same person without them and I always showcase them proudly every chance I get.
I’ve drawn many animals using pencil and paper over the years, but this was my first attempt at building living beings in a vector format using Illustrator. Then I placed them into Photoshop and did some blurring/smudging to soften it up a bit. I’ve learned better ways of doing this since then, but I feel it isn’t too shabby for my first time and warrants being showcased here.
