I have been buckling down and going through some Illustrator tutorials.
There have been a few assignments that have slipped past me due to my inexperience with the program.
( I can create an illustration in Flash, export it as an Illustrator file, and make the tweaks there, but it's not the same as making the illustration in the program itself).So, I am taking some time to devote myself to mastering the fundamentals.
Here is the first "pure" Illustrator drawing I have ever done.
I know I have a lot of work ahead of me.
