For this assignment I chose Philadelphia Eagles team logo to vectorize it. The first thing was to define the bigger shapes like the background ones, so it would be easier to add details instead of trying to make outlines, etc.
Blocking big shapes
And then start adding some more detailed shapes.
- Adding the darker shape and creating detailing into steps, figuring out how was the best way to do it and be more accurate with the picture / 2. Adding the lighter shapes / 3. How I chose to make some detailing on the eye, but after I was finished I realized I could have done it on a simpler way, I should have done a single block white and made the black details shapes with the darker gray. / 4. Finally done!
I did the same process of the eagle to the letters “Eagles” but for Philadelphia I chose to do it differently. I chose to use shapes to construct a accurate and same size, height and weight shape letters, I began with the rectangle for the H legs, then the serifs and replicated on other letters that had the vertical line, for others like the D I used some oval shapes and afterwards to make the holes I used the Pathfinder.
Was a fun project, I guess the more challenging thing was to make the Philadelphia fonts accurate enough.
