In this tutorial we will cover a technique for creating a Long Shadow effect using the ColliderScribe and VectorScribe plug-ins, which will allow us to make it easy and quickly. Long Shadow is a popular trend today that is why I think this tutorial will be useful for you.
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to draw a badminton racket and a shuttlecock in Adobe Illustrator. The tutorial is composed of two main parts, creating the racket and creating the shuttlecock. You will start from basic shapes and with a few tools (Ellipse, Pen, Line Segment…) you will easily create the shapes that you need.
In today’s tutorial, we’ll learn how to create a polygon vector portrait from bitmap images with the help of a free Triangulator web-based tool and MirrorMe plug-in, which will provide us with instantaneous symmetry. Let’s start!
Until today I used a couple of vector triangulators and can assure you that Image Triangulator App from Concept Art is the most convenient from all. You have an opportunity to work in three active modes. You can add points to an original image, work with mesh and with colored polygons. As a result, you export a pdf file which could be easily edited in Adobe Illustrator. Read about how to get the excellent result in polygonal art style in minimal time period.
Today you will learn how to create Line Art with the new Width Stump Tool, which became available in the current release of the WidthScribe2 plug-in. This powerful and flexible tool allows you to create variable width paths, transmitting the light and shadow of raster or vector objects. You would only need to select a preset, pick up the parameters and click on the button. A few minutes of experimentation and an awesome engraving is ready!
In this lesson we will look at features of the application Width Stamp Tool to raster and vector objects to create a fairly complex illustration in the engraving style. You will also learn how to use a custom hatching and Width Stamp presets.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a Ping Pong Table illustration that includes a ping-pong paddle and ball. We’ll be using the Rectangle Tool, Pen Tool, gradients along with Align and the Pathfinder palettes to create main shapes. Also we’ll use effects and some distort options.
In this tutorial we will take a detailed look at the process of creating a glowing cosmic snowflake, using only standard features of Adobe Illustrator. We will also create a dynamic template that allows you to quickly change the appearance of a snowflake. You can use this template to generate snowflakes of different shapes and glowing abstract compositions.
In this tutorial you will learn how to create a textured light and shadow using native functions of Adobe Illustrator. We will generate organic vector texture and apply it to objects. Knowledge gained today will help your retro-style illustrations look more natural. You can also apply the resulting grainy texture in typography and logo design.
