To make myself a productive afternoon, I decided to brush on Illustrator. David sent us a tutorial link on how to create the end of a USB cable – the plug bit and cord. The tutorial uses Photoshop so I wasn’t able to follow the directions dedicatedly. It was all building the image from scratch and utilizing a few effects like blending and bevel, among others. I wasn’t able to do much with the plastic body, but I fixed the layering, yey! Anyhow, I’m quite proud of the outcome. It may not look exactly as the original thing but who cares? I think I’m making progress ü
