I come up with a great sketch for a header. I’m excited about it. I am dumb and can’t figure out illustrator so I do the ol’ sketch by hand and scan method for creating most of my headers. If you have no clue what I’m talking about maybe this will help.
This is a sketch I did
This is the digital version.
I then copied it and flipped it around
Thus making this header
For this site, but they didn’t pick this header. They picked the one on the site.
Anyway, I have this great idea, but for some reason every time I try to draw the outline it turns out like crap. The resolution of it is all screwed up. And frankly I’m getting pissed about it. I’ve drawn it twice in Photoshop, 3 times in Illustrator and nada.
What the hell is up with Illustrator. I hear all of these great things about Illustrator and how nice things turn out, but I can’t make a simple layer with a pattern. I have no problems with Photoshop. Granted it took me about 5 years to learn, but Illustrator is for super graphics geniuses and I am certainly not of that caliber. Please! Someone send me a quick and dirty tutorial on Illustrator. Otherwise I’m likely to throw my whole computer out of the window!
