    I was using this to demonstrate how a design can be constructed.

    That's cool Von. These vector skeletons are always interesting to look at.

    How do you get the paths to look like that?

    No fill, pink stroke? I feel like this is a trick question.

    I like that the logo is composed of simple elements. Thanks for sharing the process, Von. I am still stuck in Freehand world and living in Illustrator denial.

    Good news it's easier to switch now than it was back in CS2 when I did it. And with plugins like VectorScribe it's an even better experience than FreeHand so no fear man.

    Thanks for the resources and info, Von. Seems it's time to break out of my comfort zone.

    Steph-I was a resistant Freehand convert as well, and agree with Von that AI has come a long way in the past few versions. VectorScribe is worth every penny, as well.

    Von-Love the signature Magenta wireframes!

    Did you created the body of the bird using geometric shapes or just the Pen Tool?

    For the body it was just the pen tool.
