• EXERCISE PROPOSAL: Flag of Cuba
The following exercise combines several of the options that we have seen throughout the course and can be a good example of how to get a "professional" illustration in a simple way.
We are going to represent the flag of Cuba, with the following characteristics:
As you can see, the base is five bands of 120x12 mm., Three blue and two white. Creating one with those measures is easy ... How would you make the others aligned below and that there are no empty spaces in between?
Then we need a triangle that has a side of 12x5 mm, that is, 60 mm. Making an equilateral triangle is simple. How can we make it measure 60 mm. sideways?
These are just a few clues. Try to do it by yourself and, if you get stuck at some point, we offer you the video with the solution.
