Inspiration is right in front of you!

Take a look at your desktop (the real one – not the screen 😉) It’s there, whatever you see you can, for instance – scan and start from there.

In this example I will show you how to use stuff from your desktop to get compelling illustration.
So, as I sad – scan something that you found on your desk. In this case it’s mobile phone and pencil.

Important: Don’t forget to cover copyrighted words or logos.

Place them into Illustrator (or CorelDraw) and trace it in b&w (2 colors mode. Both Illustrator and CorelDraw – offer built-in tracing feature.)

These “messy” spots and dots are actually very welcomed because we will use them to get some grunge look of the illustration. Place your vectorized stuff around the background.

And after some playing around with dots and spots – voila, the illustration is done! Learning to draw enriches this creative process, offering a personal touch and a sense of achievement that comes from bringing your unique vision to life. Each stroke and detail added becomes a testament to your artistic journey and inspiration.

On the other hand, if you need this illustration for any purposes, why bother going through all this when it can be bought for just 1$ at Shutterstock.com?

Yet, the act of learning to draw itself is invaluable, providing a deep, fulfilling connection to your work that cannot be purchased.
