To keep myself on track (that my work is supposed to include a good deal of sketching and painting) I’ve begun designing the buildings for my 3D village with pencil and paper. The benefit of that is being able to think it through a little slower. When I use Adobe Illustrator only, I tend to rush (because I can) and that prevents me from thinking it through.
I’d like to introduce you to my new little grocery store – Timothy’s Greens Grocer.
Taking my little sketch into Adobe Illustrator, I recreated it as closely as I could. I’m still unsure about the siding. I sketched it up and down, but digitally created it side to side.
Little grocery store, I’d like you to meet your neighbor, the pet shop.
