Untitled. I did a quick search to find an illustrator tutorial on creating a vector disco ball but I couldn’t find one.


So I’ve decided to write this tutorial to help those interested in creating this awesome disco ball effect. It is actually quite simple, the technique is to create the texture first and map it onto the 3D sphere. However, we will require Illustrator CS and above to create this awesome Illustrator effect. 1. Create the disco ball texture First, we need to turn on the grid and enable snapping. Press Ctrl/Command+D to duplicate a row of 20 squares.

With the Selection Tool, select a square. 2. Now draw a circle with the Circle Tool. With the semi-circle still selected, go Effect>3D>Revolve. Under 3D Revolve Options, select No Shading for Surface and turn the Preview option on. 3. Draw a circle and fill it with Radial Gradient. We will need to add in more sparkles. 4. Let’s begin to do the disco reflection. Duplicate a few of the reflections and spread them around. Related Articles. Geometric Illustration with Volume (Edgar Rozo). Online Course.
