The ‘Not There Yet Chronicles’ - Birdie version

Hey there birdie!

Wow, this month sure has slipped by quickly!

I was listening to someone talk about failure a few days ago. It got me thinking about how life is filled with opportunities to experiment and learn from. 

If something doesn’t work, I like to try to figure out why and what I might do differently the next time. Then try again. 

Admittedly, I don’t always do it but recently I did…

It was time to play around and digitize this sweet birdie. I tried a few different ways…Adobe Illustrator made the sketchy lines too wonky. I spent a ton of time erasing bits and trying to fix things but no deal. It just looked bad. 

Then I redrew her in the Procreate app on my iPad (Procreate is a digital illustration app). That looked too clean.

I set the sweet birdie aside for a week and then I got some ideas about how I might approach this in the past few days. In Illustrator I can play with changing the settings in image trace.  In Procreate, I can try choosing brushes that are a bit more rough and sketchy. 

I haven’t done anything yet but I’m looking forward to getting back to playing around and seeing what might work.
