- So how did your shape drawing come out?…What was the hardest part for you?…Let me show you how I approach this challenge.…So I picked the topic of the giraffe driving a car…and this specific style, I like to kind of keep my shapes…somewhat geometrics and simplified…and I actually created a whole book in this style…this past summer…and I'll include a link in the Exercise Files,…you can check that out…but you can see how I just roughly sketched out a giraffe,…he's in a convertible because obviously…his head would go through the ceiling…and then I did my rough sketch on a piece of paper…and then on vellum I just tightened it up…and did my, what I consider a finalized sketch,…that really defines the exact shape…of how everything will form.…
Now it's at this point that I could've put a sheet of paper…on the top of it and inked it, that would've been great…that would've looked fine.…But I decided to actually vectorize it.…So I did all the heavy lifting, creatively speaking…in the drawing phase,…but now I've scanned it in and I actually built it out…
