Today we’ll talk a little bit about the two most common types of symmetry and using tools so you can quickly and easily create symmetrical objects in Adobe Illustrator. And this is important, because symmetry is used in all kinds of design, architecture, painting and other visual arts.
Generally, there are 17 kinds of symmetry for seamless patterns, however Adobe Illustrator can offer us only one of them, it is called the Simple Shift. Thanks to MirrorMe plug-in we can significantly extend the functionality of the Pattern Maker feature, adding at least another 7 kinds of mirror symmetry. Let’s take a look at how to create additional types of symmetry, working directly in the Pattern Maker mode.
Function Split Long Contour is designed for high precision applications of the Width Stamp Tool to very long paths, such as circular and square spirals. You will learn about the peculiarities of this feature from this article.
Follow this tutorial and have fun creating a vector balloons text effect in Adobe Illustrator.You’ll start with the letters, then with the help of the Pen Tool, the Direct Selection Tool along with the Pathfinder palette you’ll easily create the letters with the shapes that you want.
Today we will talk about Features Using Linked and Embedded images in Adobe Illustrator. You will also learn How to Apply Link images function of Rasterino plug-in for multiple images and benefits of this function compared to the native one.
In this tutorial we will learn how to quickly distribute a bunch of objects along a path of arbitrary shape. Combining Gradient on Stroke feature and allows us to influence the size of distributed objects, subjecting them to the law of linear perspective. To create the effect of aerial perspective, we use the Opacity Mask.
In this tutorial we will learn how in just a few minutes you can create a text portrait using Phantasm Halftone and Phantasm Levels effects. For enlightening of certain sections of the portrait create and apply custom Art Brush. Let’s get started!

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!
