How to Illustrate Dynamic Hair Using Adobe Illustrator's Paintbrush Tool. How to Render Short, Detailed Hair in Adobe Illustrator.

How to Render Short, Detailed Hair in Adobe Illustrator

From my experience from vectoring hundreds of vector portraits, short hair has always been more time consuming and required more precision. The reason being is that long hair benefits from the weight of gravity pulling the hair down and it avoids many of the natural kinks in the hair that short hair has.

How to Create Clothing Zipper in Adobe Illustrator - Part 1. How to Create Advanced Isometric Illustrations Using the SSR Method.

This is the second part of a series of tutorials I'm doing about creating isometric illustrations in Adobe Illustrator.

How to Create Advanced Isometric Illustrations Using the SSR Method

If you've missed that first tutorial I suggest you start with Working with Orthographic Projections and Basic Isometrics. Let's get started! In the last tutorial I covered how to make an isomeric grid and build simple blocky shapes on it. In this tutorial I'm going to talk about another method of creating isometric shapes that doesn't require a grid and is much more useful if your objects are complex or curvy.

When creating a complicated isometric illustration it's best to begin by breaking down your object into its simplest parts. The basic idea behind the SSR method is that by using tools in Adobe Illustrator you can place an object onto an isometric plane without using a grid. Create a 4 inch square with your Rectangle tool. With the square selected double-click on your Scale tool. With the object selected double-click on the Rotate tool and rotate it -30 degrees. How To Use The Width Tool in Illustrator. Illustrator’s Width Tool was introduced way back in CS5, believe it or not—so it’s amazing that there are a number of users who haven’t discovered it.

How To Use The Width Tool in Illustrator

The tool is easy to use and can give some fantastic results—you’d be amazed at what can be created with it—especially when it’s combined with gradients, as it can be used to get a gradient mesh drawing started (check out the reference to that on this post from May 2015). Using The Width Tool All you need to use the Width Tool is a stroke to use it on. You’ll find the tool with the warping and distortion family, and it has a keyboard acceleration shortcut (SHIFT-W) that will get you the tool even faster. You then move along the stroke, clicking and dragging to change the width, away from the centre (vector) line to increase the width… …towards the centre line to decrease the width… …and you can use the tool to grab the nodes that appear on the outer edges too—which makes it easier to create tapers at the end of your stroke.
