Create a Cute Adipose From Doctor Who in Adobe Illustrator - Tuts+ Design & Illustration Tutorial. With the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who there's no better way to celebrate than with some fantastic fan art. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a sweet little Adipose (one of those fat monsters from series four) with basic shapes. Kick it up a notch and head over to the craft section of Tuts+, to render this little cutie in plush form, with Amanda Tepie. I started with a quick sketch of the character (thinking heavily about the crafted portion of this collaboration tutorial) in Adobe Photoshop CC. Opened it in Adobe Illustrator CC with an artboard sized 8 x 10in. Using the Rounded Rectangle Tool, draw a large rectangle that will be adjusted into the Adipose's body shape. Using the Direct Selection Tool (A), adjust the anchor points and handles so the top of the rounded rectangle is narrower than the bottom.

This is my favorite part of the tutorial. With the Rounded Rectangle Tool, draw five little shapes. The foot is pretty similar to the hand and body.

Algunos consejos para dibujar con trazados bézier. Algunos consejos para dibujar con trazados bézier Otro ejemplo —sin duda exagerado— de lo que no debe hacerse.

En programas de CAD que manejan NURBS —un tipo de splines algo más complejos que las bézier— existen herramientas de análisis que permiten identificar en que áreas estamos introduciendo errores de curvatura. Estas herramientas son extremadamente útiles para crear superficies con una perfecta continuidad geométrica, algo imprescidible en la industria de la automoción, aeronáutica o naval. Pero en un programa como Illustrator la mejor —y la única— herramienta para comprobar la continuidad de nuestra curvatura es nuestro ojo.

Y creedme: cuantos menos puntos defináis más fácil será mantener el control del trazado. Como todo, es cuestión de práctica. NOTA: La técnica para hacer que el trazado vaya variando de grosor, afinándose en los extremos, la veremos en un próximo tutorial.
