Ladybug

Here’s the first thing that I’ve done with Illustrator C4.

C4 isn’t very different from C3.  So far the only thing that I’ve noticed is that the crop area has been replaced by the more intuitive “Art Board”.  Supposedly, Adobe made creating gradient fills easier.  I’ll play with that tomorrow if I have time.  I made a side view of this ladybug too.  I want to make a couple of leaves and stems so I can mix and match things to make some little wallpaper compositions.  This ladybug is very symmetric, so it should be fun to see what I can do to play with the symmetry in a composition with more items.  It should be fun, too, to play with the “rhythm” of the dots.
