Medal Design ProgressPosted: October 26, 2015
Over the past 2 weeks I’ve been creating the flower-face side of my Blodeuedd medal. After my attempt in clay didn’t reach the standards that I wanted for my final design, I decided to instead move to the computer and use Adobe Illustrator to achieve the detail that I needed. This has been a very time consuming process but I feel that this was the right decision to make. The clean lines that I was creating in Illustrator also reminded me of the Art Nouveau movement, specifically Alphonse Mucha’s work. As I progressed through the designing process and I got more confident in using Illustrator, the flowers that I was creating began to get much more detailed and I later even found myself going back and re-drawing some of the earlier flowers.
I then edited the design for one last time so it would work best with the laser cutter…
