Pet of Fortune by evelmiina Pet of Fortune by evelmiina
Adobe Illustrator CS5. This is the first time I've used Illustrator for complete illustration, so I learned a lot in the process.

I have included this beautiful piece in my Ethereal feature: [link] :) This is really gorgeous job, looks like it would be ready to be printed just anywhere - t-shirts, mugs etc. - like the Taika series. The Pet of Foresight is really great as well, love the primitive power in the designs.

that's so impressing! I am learning illustrator cs5 in school now, but the program has too much features... it's so complicated xDDD
I am more than impressed of this art you do! (sorry for my bad english :/)

Oh no your english is just fine! I hated this program when I first opened it, so I understand well, it's not easy to get hang of. I didn't exactly have the best possible teacher so I just figured what kind of effects you can do with it. Gladly my second course on Illustrator was considerably better, and once you figure that anchor points and pen-tool make sense, it gets easier :) thanks!

Amazing design! Did you add textures on the body or is it completely vector?

I have one watercolor texture that I made myself, underneath the scales that pop-up :) thanks!

Ahh okay. I'm asking because you mentioned it's all vector, which made me wonder if the textures are vector too.

No problem, it was my mistake not mentioning it. If I remember right, all effects, gradients and textures in Illustrator are pixels, unless the texture is some sort of pattern.

wooow really gorgeous! is this a qilin? :) <33 I really like the clean/paperlike feeling to this and the subtle hints of patterns,
they're not overbearing since I think they really balance out with the non-patterned areas! the shadows really add more depth to it
also I particularly like the body area with the scales! @_@ the texture looks so soft and delicate! the scale pattern looks really cute and really adds alot of character!

Yep! I feel like I've just drawn so many Kirins/Qilins (well, not that many, but I tried painting one during summer and one I posted from sketchbook) that didn't want to name yet another deviation as such :'D thank you so much, your compliments are so overwhelming aaa :heart:

This is really impressive. All your brightly colored details are so beautiful, and I love the cutout sort of texture the picture has.

Miten joku voikaan osata tehdä illulla noin nätin kuvan? ;u; Niin kauniit kuviot ja tekstuurit että! Todella eheä kokonaisuus kaikkien muotoineen ja väreineen! :heart:
en tiedä mitä sönkkään yhy mutta toivon että joskus osaisin tehdä illustraattorilla yhtä nättiä jälkeä ;3;

Jonkun verran on pyydetty että tekisin tutoriaalin illustratorista, voisin varmaan jonkinnäköisen ohjeistuksen värkätä, kun muistan että illu oli aika tuskallista opeteltavaa ilman pätevää opettajaa (ei sillä että itse olisin, mutta). Ehkä vähän aina valotusta sen ohjelman logiikkaan voisi antaa :) kiva et tykkäät!

Joo, tee ihmeessä! c: Miekin voisin saada hyviä vinkkejä sen opetteluun, monen muun henkilön lisäksi! :la:
Ensimmäistä vuotta opiskelen graafista suunnittelua ja nyt vasta ekaa kertaa olen illustratoria käyttänyt ja näin alkuun se kyllä tuntuu aika kinkkiseltä. :/ Ja opettajatkin odottaa jotenkin liikoja... noo ehkä sen käyttö tästä pikku hiljaa alkaa luonnistua! c: Ainakin toivon mukaan! :''D
Ja ei mitään, ihana kuva on! :heart:

Oih! Kerrassaan hurmaavan näköinen otus. Näyttää kuin otuksen osaset ois leikelty paperista. Hirmu siistiä ja huoliteltua jälkeä, ei voi kun ihastella ja koko ajan löytyy lisää pieniä kivoja yksityiskohtia ihmeteltäväksi 8)

Kiitos! Se on tosiaan Illustratorissa mukavaa kun voi keskittyä niin hyvin yksityiskohtien ja muotojen hiomiseen <:

I've done some illustrator work previously, but mostly subtle typography or flat vectors without effects or textures. Didn't quite figure how to use them before this.
