STEP 11 At the moment we don't have much colour. To fix this, I made a shape in Illustrator with the Pen tool (P), which I will use as a base to create some extra colour by adding gradients and textures.

STEP 12 An original solution to fill this shape is to use random images. For example, take a photo of a leather sofa, cut out your shape from the image and you have an abstract black texture to fill your work with.


STEP 13 After adding some more abstract shapes filled with textures, I want to give this a spacey look (you can find amazing space images if you search for Nebula Stock). Drop them on top of your work and set your Blending Option to Screen to create a lovely colour effect.
