I started learning Flutter and successfully created my first iOS test app. The app only displays an image, but it’s a start. I was poking around with creating the framework for this app when I realized I didn’t have any images for my end goal app. I need buttons, icons, and backgrounds. I’m not going to pay someone to make this artwork (I don’t have the money!), so I will have to learn how to do it myself. Where do I begin?
I actually Googled how to make app icons. I learned the leading software for drawing artwork like app icons is Adobe Illustrator. I have some experience with Adobe Photoshop, but I have no experience with Illustrator. Back to Google. I found a rather lengthy series of videos teaching the fundamentals of Illustrator. The first lesson was on how to draw a sleeping fox. I present to you my first artwork from Illustrator.
It’s not much, but it served to bolster my confidence. I went on in the series to create other graphics, and I am still several videos away from attempting artwork for my app.
