For this task, we were asked to take a photo of an apple and approximate it in Illustrator using the pen and anchor point tools.
First, we used the pen tool to approximate the main apple, using as little anchor points as possible.
Then, we repeated this for the stick and the leaf. Next, we used a tool called the mesh tool to create lines on the apple to give it a 3d effect. We then used the gradient tool to give the apple 3d shading.
