Tutorials: Graphics Using the Elements of Design

  1. 1. Images taken from: http://vectips.com/tutorials/creating-seamless-textures/ CREATING A GRAPHIC USING TEXTURE Create a RECTANGLE with a LINEAR GRADIENT Adjust the COLOR of the GRADIENT by selecting new colors Use the APPEARANCE window to add a NEW FILL to your shape Again, use the APPEARANCE window to change the FILL Use TEXTURE  GRAIN Change the BLENDING MODE  MULTIPLY Add a NEW FILL  RADIAL GRADIENT, a White to Transparent gradient Change the BLENDING MODE to OVERLAY Add TEXT and remove the STROKE/FILL, then from APPEARANCE  NEW FILL Add a LINEAR GRADIENT Experiment with FILLS, TEXTURES, and BLENDING MODES Experiment with EFFECTS like DROP SHADOW, GLOW etc.
  2. 2. CREATING A GRAPHIC USING NEGATIVE SPACE Images taken from: http://www.gomediazine.com/tutorials/illustrator/creating-an-illustrative-monogram/ Create a set of solid SHAPES Create negative space SHAPES Add more negative space shapes to fill out the final form Use the PEN TOOL and TRANSFORM TOOLS to finish the shape Create additional shapes using positive and negative space Use the PEN TOOL and different BRUSH SETTINGS to create embellishments Use different WEIGHTED brushes to finalize the embellishments Use the pen tool to create more shapes and add a GRADIENT OR MESH BEND, TRANSFORM and WARP the gradients to fit the shapes Repeat the first SEVEN steps to create a complimentary graphic Repeat the steps for creating a GRADIENT or MESH Place the pieces together to create a strong composition and harmony
  3. 3. CREATING A GRAPHIC USING LINES for 3-Dimensional SPACE Images taken from: http://vectips.com/tutorials/create-a-3d-text-effect-in-adobe-illustrator/ Create an “empty” text (no fill/stroke) and then add a NEW FILL  GRADIENT From APPEARANCE use TRANSFORM EFFECT to create an OFFSET PATH Repeat the last step and create a darker colored OFFSET PATH (shadow) Repeat the last step and use a lighter colored OFFSET PATH (outline) Repeat the last step and create a new OFFSET PATH off centered (highlights) Repeat the last step and create an outline around the whole graphic Repeat the last step for a bolder outline Repeat the last step and create an off centered OFFSET PATH (bevel) Use STYLIZE  DROP SHADOW Repeat the last step for other FILL LAYERS (text itself, not the outline) Finalize with EFFECTS Experiment with colors, overlays and textures
