I created a simple vector illustration of grass in front of a blue sky a long time ago (5 years to be exact), and I never could find a good reason to delete it from my archive of trashed graphics. I can’t even remember the reason why I created it in the first place – but if I had to guess, I would say that it was because I wanted to use it for some stock illustrations I was creating at the time.
Long story short, creating the grass was more difficult than I thought it was going to be and I gave up on this illustration a lot sooner than I probably should have. I do remember thinking that I would revisit it someday, but not once in the last 5 years have I ever needed a graphic of cartoonish-looking grass such as this.
I think it’s on it’s way to looking like actual grass, and if you’re pretty good with vector graphics you could probably get it looking just the way you want it without too much effort. But then again – if you are good with vector graphics to begin with, you probably wouldn’t even need to start out with an illustration this crappy.
I’m just happy it’s finally out of my archives.
