This seems my works for 2012 are big changes.
In 2005, I found a wallpaper inspiration. I started to use Adobe Photoshop to create my portrait. It was for a background in Myspace. I used “lasso tool” to trace everything. I didn’t know how to use “pen tool” as it got messed up.
In 2009, many friends said the same messages about Adobe Illustrator. I installed and tried to play with this software; however, pen tool awfully frustrated me. Then in 2010, I decided to watch pen tool tutorials on YouTube. After a few days passed by, I got used to the tool.
Since 2010, I explored vector artists’ works and learned from them.
In 2011, I took the Digital Graphic Design program. Luckily, my instructor taught about pen tools. It was helpful! A tablet is more useful for creating vector and faster than using a mouse.
Now I master the pen tool, including the tablet.
