DAY 1 - 10
Inspired by Tiantian Xu, a talented designer friend of mine, I started my 100 days of design challenge with tutorials.
Before diving right into the innovative creation part, I decided to follow tutorials and be more familiar with the design software. I believe learning and practicing these skills will prepare me a good foundation and open more possibilities for my future design.
I started with the solar system planet series by following How to Create a Solar System Planets Icon Pack in Adobe Illustrator written by Andrei Stefan. I practiced my skills with the pen tool, pathfinders path offset tool, clipping masks, etc.
DAY 11 - 18
I continued learning and practicing my skills with the space series icons by following How to Create Stylish Flat Space Icons in Adobe Photoshop written by YuLia Sokolova.
I learned and practiced several approaches to creating shadows and light effect for the icons.
DAY 19 - 24
I also started to create my own Seattle version of illustration based on the sample.
DAY 25 - 30
I created an icon for my friend's dog Sparky. I tried to capture the characteristic of Sparky while minimizing the details.
I also created a geometric illustration for Sparky.
