The purpose of this assignment is to get us used to adding texture through the gradient tool. In addition to this, I also used the transform, shape, and pathfinder tool to draw this illustration. I created different shapes based on an actual picture and sampled the colours from that.
After doing this, I created different gradients from the different colours sampled and used various tools to try to give it texture. Overall, it was a great assignment to do, teaching me the foundation of creating shapes and using gradients in Adobe Illustrator.
