slide1.JPGAll week I have been drawing teeth in Illustrator for a doctor of Endodontics. She needed these illustrations for a presentation she is making next week and I can’t remember where and what the conference is. So since I mention the teeth thing a lot, it is my paying job, the proverbial day job, I thought I’d post some pics of my teeth illustrations. Click on those teeth to see the enlarged version.slide5.JPG

I heavily utilized the gradient mesh tool in Illustrator to achieve the 3-D slide2.JPGlook the doctor desired. Boy, that’s some fun. I really enjoy exploring new tools in my software packages.

For you fellow Illustrator users, there are some really interesting tutorials for the gradient mesh thing here, here and here as well as examples of masters of the tool here and here. Check it out. And let me know if you like my teeth.slide6.JPG

    oh yes!
    I like the illustration but they remind me that I should visit my dentist… it’s been over a year since my last one!
