The last two days I had been watching tutorials on youtube about vectors, creating flat characters and environments on Adobe Illustrator. What lead to me wanting to watch these was that I wanted to create some graphic designs on Illustrator. I thought it would be more helpful for me to learn some tools and skills to develop nice artwork for whatever like for logos, character and game design. I can’t just keep doing my own thing just creating random drawings on photoshop or medibang paint (a free drawing application). I need to build up my portfolio. I hadn’t been doing much with any game related work (because major changes happened and silently was replaced ahehe).
I did a few of designs after watching theses tutorials. It was actually easier than excepted. However, I’m still practicing, trying out to play with shapes and see what I can make. I’ll be creating characters first till I do like environment then into doing UI.
Here are 2 samples I did:
To be honest with you guys, there hasn’t been much going on happening in my life. My life, is just not that interesting. My daily routine is pretty 98% the same thing. Life of the unemployed, job seeking and freelancing person. When friends messages me asking how am I, I always give them the cliche answer haha. But I’m gonna post about my outing last week.
We planned on a Friday evening to have dinner and karaoke. We planned to meet up in the city as everyone was scattered. Work, already in the city and at home. We decided to eat at a Japanese BBQ place. My friend and I arrived there first and got a table, in case there’s a queue and getting busy as it’s a Friday. I think we waited for about 15 minutes when everyone arrived and started to order food, just as everyone hadn’t had dinner. We chatted along with eating. I know the others were full, I was alright just satisfied compared to when we had Korean BBQ.
After eating, the friends decided on wanting to do some shopping, clothes shopping. I actually had no mood to buy anything or shopping in general (saving up for a piece of technology). The shop we went into had a sale. I just walked around, browsed around and tried on some things. Everyone had a bag each lol. With our leg and feet tiring out and drained from shopping we headed to karaoke. We first went to one near us, but they had all rooms booked. So we went to the one we had always been gone to. However, whilst heading there, we walked passed a free glitter face make-up. One wanted to do it and decided for us that we should all have it done. One friend went unique while the rest of us went for the same thing. But it looked great on her. After getting it done, we finally went singing.
We arrived home around 3:15am. I think it’s a first time being out till this late. Funny thing is that I woke up around 9:30am and couldn’t fall back to sleep. But that day, I felt my eyes were drowsy.
