This was my first time ever drawing with illustrator. I ended up just drawing the image on paper and scanning it into the computer and then selecting Object > Image Trace from the drop down menu. Voila! Illustrator did all of the vectoring for me, which is the way it should be. Computers should do tasks for humans. That’s the way of it.
Then I got stuck again at the fill part. Decided to work on those skills tomorrow. This is good enough for day 1.
(And after all that vector-ing wordpress makes me save it as a PNG. FRU#@#(*KKKK!!!! Vector schmecktor.)
