Hi all. I'm studying design but I have some trouble with this simple thing. I don't know how to achieve this effect in the best and natural way possible...I tried with the pen tool but it sucks...
You do see the irony in your statements, right?
How better for a student to learn than to persevere? That image, once you get a bit more practice with the pen tool, should only take you 5 minutes. If you were coming up with a new to you design, longer. But you have a sample and are only copying it.
Get to using that pen tool and learn.
