Illustrator Drawing

I knew I wanted to create an object that I was familiar with for this first project with shapes. Chanel No. 5 is my favorite perfume. I pick up the bottle every day and am very familiar with its shape so I decided to take it digitally. The biggest challenge I faced was the cap to the bottle. It is an intricate crystal design and it was difficult getting the color and curves correct. Another challenge I faced was trying to get the bottle to look three dimensional instead of two dimensional. I overcame this problem by adding a drop shadow. I overcame the intricate curves by doing and redoing them until I was happy with the outcome. It was very helpful at first tracing an image to practice how specific shapes are supposed to work together to form a bigger object, a.k.a. a perfume bottle in my case.
