Using the Pen tool, we created a ‘polygonal’ style by tracing out small elements from a reference photograph.

We used basic shapes such as rectangles and circles, and combined them together using Illustrator’s Pathfinder tools to create more complex elements. In the image above I have experimented with using different stroke styles to get a more natural feel.

Above is a background I created in Illustrator to use in an animation we made using After Effects. After Effects is only for putting pieces of artwork together to animate, so Illustrator is a good tool for creating assets.
