I have been learning how to use Adobe programs.
For this project, I used the Adobe Illustrator tool for reproducing a sports team logo.
I choose the BAKERSFIELD DRAGONS‘s logo for this project.
Firstly, I had to download the image on Illustrator, and change the Layer options brightly for drawing the outlines of image with pen tools.
I draw the outline of whole logo because this logo has the grey and the black color layers at the bottom.
However, they had a grey gradation in the middle of logo, so I had draw and fill it particularly.
After that, I draw and colored the inside part.
The dragon of this logo could be largely divided with Red colored part, Grey colored part and the black outlines which is very important.
This is the logo with all black lines. It has much more details now.
After that, I drawn the shadow parts and light parts. It gives more depth to this dragon.
Now, I drawn the eye with this ways.
I made 4 layers as you can see in this screen shot.
This way could more clearly express the eye, and also easy way.
Finally, I draw the name of sports team.
It was layered by grey shadows and white letter.
So, I did the grey thing firstly, and then layered with the white part of letters.
Plus, I used the pathfinder for combining lines during to draw the letter part.
This is my layer lists.
By working on this project, I could learn how to use the pen tool in Illustrator.
It has many curved lines and details for me, but I think I did well and enjoyed this project 🙂
I will continue it.
