Creative Mondays 168 – Polygon Girl
“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
More experimentation with different styles for Creative Mondays this week. I’ve been meaning to try the ‘polygon style’ for quite some time and it’s quite a tricky thing to get right. Breaking up the face into shapes and getting the lighting right takes a bit of practice but I like the style and it’s certainly something I want to try again, maybe with a popular figurehead.
This time around I used an image from the Free Images stock site and built up the shapes in Illustrator and added texture and shading within Photoshop.
