Playing with Adobe Illustrator

Had some fun this morning playing around a little bit with Illustrator. The intent was to make an insignia similar to the one that D’Harans use in the “Legend of the Seeker”.

Specifically this one:

And also a variant of which is on their breastplate:

Ok, so it’s a little morbid, but I thought it would be super cool if my 3rd-born could have a cape like this (oddly, it really reminds me of him) and so we’d need a pattern to cut out.

I’m very new at Illustrator (but understand the basics) so spent about 30 minutes to create this:

… and then touched it up in Photoshop:

Reminds me a little bit of the Storm Trooper helmet in Star Wars  in a way, but I like the end result. I’ll take some pictures of the cape if/when we complete it.

    Do you like Legend of the Seeker too? Or just the design?

    It’s kind of a weird story… we’ve been watching it a little bit. I haven’t really made up my mind.
