@Steven Schroeder that's 50% of the construction lines!
Wow. That's all I have to say. :) This is really stunning. It's really incredible how you used the grid lines.
That's awesome! Kelpie?
Really nice indeed. Wondering, does it really help to have such elaborate grids?
this is insane! Beautiful logo. Who is it for?
Do you put the grid there *after* you've drawn the logo? Or how does such wizardry work?
Awesome work. Would love to learn about your process.
Amazing! Construction lines are always super interesting to see.
@Ray Stone Ah Ah, very close, australian shepherd, the so called "aussie". I've used my own dog as a reference. http://instagr.am/p/ijkLJ/ Just added a cute tail, my dog has none.
@Stelian Vasile Yes it does, without guides it will be impossible to have such smooth curves. Unless you're master in handling bezier curves!
@Dan Berko I did it for myself. I need an escape from a web project I am working on.
@Ragnar Võrel @David Higdon The process is very simple and a lot of fun. Sketch > import in Illustrator > draw circles everywhere > make them guides > draw following the guides.
The only ability needed is to place correctly the circles on the drawing lines. I strongly suggest to have the sketch at least 90% complete before importing it.
@Erica Schoonmaker I totally agree.
Curious a bit more about your explanation...so, then, do you find yourself tweaking the illustration to use similar dimensions and proportions more frequently to give a feeling of sync? Or just as simple as what you said, drop the circles close to the illo to aid in the process?
(regardless of your answer...love it)
@Joel Carter drop the shapes, in my case I prefer circles and use them as guides. That's just it. ;-)
Thank you all for the warm feedback. You made me super happy.
I may put together a detailed tutorial someday, explaining step by step how the technique works for me.

Love your process! And thanks for the explanation. I've always wondered how people get such smooth curves in illustrator! And you've just helped me understand one of the ways. Thank you! And beautiful work!!
