A few months ago, I asked people on my Facebook
page if anyone wanted to let me vector their dog for a tutorial. I got several references and some I used to practicing doing dog fur and another I used for a tutorial.
I decided to take it a step further and did a dog tutorial adding elements of the owners personality to it.
What's good about this tutorial is that it's a good introduction to a variety of tools including gradients, brushes, gradient meshes, the appearance panel, 3D and patterns. So if you've got beginner to intermediate knowledge of Illustrator, it's a good way to start with these tools.
The subject is the wonderful Stella, the labradoodle who lives with $chix0r
- thank you for the awesome references!
