Adobe Illustrator For Beginners Homework Results

Hey Everyone!
I wanted to share my homework assigned that I produced with Adobe Illustrator. I was very inspired from the vectorize an image section, so I decided to try it out for myself.

It took me a while to figure out how to separate the eyes from the background image of the wolf. What I did was probably not the right technique, but it looks pretty good for a first timer. I created a mask for the eyes using the pen tool. Then I exported the eye mask and pulled it into Lightroom and enhanced the color. Then I pulled that back into AI and placed it as a new layer. Then I “expanded” it and deleted the white fill that came with exporting/importing from Lightroom.

I did some other coloring just to make it pop a little. Overall, I’m very happy with how this went and I feel that I learned quite a bit from the Youtube video!
