OMG I'm actually posting something new!!!!!
I apologize but the problem is that most of the stuff I'm doing these days is confidential and owned by Disney.
I am however back in the swing of classes and will have more and more fun things to share.
First up, I'm working on a new style for myself, attempting to use Adobe Illustrator to create a look reminiscent of Alphonse Mucha and Gustav Klimt. I want to render faces in the round and keep the rest of the shapes nice and flat with quite a bit of ornamental illustration and flat patterning giving those spaces lots of vibration and energy.
But I didn't know how to render faces in Illustrator. I figured gradient meshes would be a good route to go.
Long story short here is my first ever attempt at gradient meshes in Adobe Illustrator. I think it turned out pretty good for a first time study and I am comforted in the hope that I will be able to use these sparingly in order to achieve the aesthetic I am searching for.
