I have everything brought into Illustrator, now I’m working on detail and colors. You can see in the letters that there are breaks to help me see where there will be depth in the letters.
I’m interested in adding detail inside of the letters, bringing in knots or a pattern if it will support the look of everything together.
Below you can see what the “e” looks like with depth and shading added as the letters overlap.
I won’t be using these too much here, but here is a quick way to make three easy art brushes in a short amount if time. They’re good for detail or backgrounds, and helped me to learn how art brushes work in Illustrator.
