I haven’t been on second life for a while lol!
My second trip to Asia and my first to Japan!
While practising using the Illustrator’s pathfinder tools, I created a stylised microphone.
The top pattern and on the readout were both made using the pattern tool, a single staggered line on the latter gives the reflective effect.
Two simple dark grey to 100% opacity at the top and bottom of the image add edge definition and an extra layer of depth.
Using a symmetrical start for this design, I began adjusting the shapes to give more definition to the figure and clothing before finally settling on a long dress.
Nearing the end, she was looking quite regal, so she got a crown & insignia. The balanced white spacing is deliberate so that the viewer can see what the picture is built up with.
Created using a rounded sans-serif font in Illustrator, the logo features two clear elements; the text, which can be used separately and a swirling underline style.
Based on a simple digital SLR camera style, I have managed to develop an instantly recognisable image in Illustrator. The aspects are also brought forward with a simple colour scheme, close to greyscale.
The image is constructed using the pen tool in Illustrator and making use of the stroke function to produce varying effects to stroke length and style.

This is the first image I’ve made entirely in Illustrator. The original image was taken from the ending sequence of the anime ‘Chuu Ni Byou Demo Koi Ga Shitai!’ (中二病でも恋がしたい!)

The only stage that caused some trouble was accessing the .js file on GitHub.com where I couldn’t find the file for download. Eventually I found the file redirection_mobile.min.js listed on Google Code site.
The webpage features the same sections as the regular version but a simpler gallery style is required to reduce the load on the mobile device, especially on mobile internet.
The article itself (currently in alpha testing) as of 24/02/13 can be seen at m.rollingcow.com or you can visit the main website via a mobile browser!
