Burning Match


Format: Vector
Size: 576 x 693
Hardware: Pen Tablet
Software: Illustrator


This was an exercise in using the gradient mesh tool in Illustrator for drawing a flame and smoke. Layer blending modes also played a part in achieving the final result. Other tools and options that I used included rectangle, ellipse, radial gradient, and rotate. After creating the candle and then this match, I’m ready to draw something cool looking on fire.
