I got some deep work done today! Even if it was for just a little while, I was pretty immersed in Illustrator like I used to be. I updated to CC 2019 from 2018, bought 2 very important plugins I needed to get so they work for 2019 (Autosavior Pro v2 & VectorScribe v3) and experimented with the workspace so that it was more usable in a 16:9 window. I’ll include a screenshot below of what that is currently looking like.

As for the illustration itself, I’m pretty happy with how it’s going so far. I need to spend a couple more hours on it adding and tweaking things, but other than that, it’s really nice to be doing something like this again. I’m going to upload this to replace the placeholder I have right now and then replace it again once it’s finished; I just want to see what it looks like.
