This family history website illustration features the ‘Waving’ script. An easy script to operate that makes a time consuming job easy. After selecting one of three of the depths of waves, the script merrily creates a number of grey shapes and I just discarded the ones I didn’t want. I then coloured the waves in snowy shades.
In this image I wanted the various layers in felt. I had the Felt Texture script and applied that but had to reduce the overall resolution of the waves to get some texture to show on my small image… I don’t know about using the felt tiles as I don’t have them.
I felt I still wanted more distinction between the layers so I added and upward drop shadow and in an easy process of deleting the drop shadow off the second layer behind I got close to what I wanted.
For those who had a felt toy for Christmas you may recognise the card as the base the company supplied in the box.
