Adobe Illustrator tutorial: Create type filled with characters It’s essential to be able to work in teams, so we’re often told. But how do you do it well when your collaborators are scattered across the globe? The Renmen Project makes a heartwarming case study. It was set up by Ben The Illustrator and design blog collective Thunder Chunky following the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January 2010. Their fundraising project continues to roll a year on, with the release of a series of type-art prints benefiting Unicef’s Haiti appeal. Thunder Chunky’s Stephen Chan is also a member of the international Blood Sweat Vector collective. The pairings fell into place quite naturally. Being fans of each other’s work brought Chris Leavens and Alexandra Zutto (aka Zutto) together for the letter R (above right). As for the first E, Kate bent the rules a tad by working on it with Sean Kelly, her partner in the illustration duo McKelly – and not a BSV member. This tutorial gives a glimpse of that collaborative process through the work of Chris and Zutto.

This article will guide you through the first few tools and tips you'll need to be on your way making vector illustrations with Adobe Illustrator. So what exactly is vector illustration?

Here I'll take you through 10 steps that will introduce you to the fundamentals, including the key tools, and get you started on the road to translating your creative vision into incredible vector illustrations... 01.

Happy Tree Friends in Illustrator I should have done this tutorial sometime ago as Happy Tree Friends is already a old animation series (it was lauched in 2000), but it still really fresh. As everyone who enjoy this series, the contrast between the cuteness of the characters and the violence and gore that they get into it's what made this series a classic. Just in case you have never seen it before here's a link. Now talking about the tutorial: I decided to not be gore as the series and so this image is way more softer. Anyway, this is a beginner tutorial, so no one should get any trouble on doing it, have fun guys. Step 1 First of all open Adobe Illustrator and create a 20 x 20 cm canvas. Later, using the rectangle tool (M) make a blue square on the background. Using the pencil tool (N) or the pen tool (P) create this round shape on the background, it may look randomic but htis kind of shapes are classicaly used on retro cartoons. Step 2 Let's skip to the title, you can grab the typeface used on this link. Step 3 His feet.

Roadmap #39 – VD 193 | Marco Olivotto Questa non è una Roadmap in senso canonico: parla del mio primo anno d’insegnamento presso l’Istituto Design Palladio di Verona, conclusosi oggi con l’ultimo esame – Illustrator nella classe del primo anno di Visual Design. Una lunga avventura iniziata lo scorso autunno e annunciata in questo post, della quale solo oggi sono in grado di (intra)vedere i confini. I tre articoli che precedono questo sono Roadmap: questo è legato agli spostamenti di queste ultime settimane che mi hanno lasciato molto poco tempo per pensare e progettare articoli più tecnici; altre faccende mi hanno lasciato ancor meno energia, ma ho intenzione di recuperare il più in fretta possibile. Vorrei chiarire il termine “sfida”. Credo di essere tutto fuorché poco disposto a rischiare. Visions In Blue: VD 193. Perché si decide di scattare una fotografia? A onor del vero, le fotografie fornite erano tre, tutte dello stesso soggetto ripreso da angoli diversi. Perché era una pensata ad altissimo rischio? Manuel Glira – VD1

Tracing a Vector Face From a Reference Photo A few times a each month we revisit some of our reader’s favorite posts from throughout the history of Vectortuts+. This tutorial by Jesse Hora was first published on October 20th 2009. There are numerous ways that you could approach using a reference photo in illustration, an obvious option being to 'trace' the photo. Since there are so many microscopic details in a photograph you have to make numerous decisions on how you want the image to look in the end. Do you want it to look photorealistic? All of these decisions will result in the look and style of your final image, and your work as a whole. Introduction Some people may think it's so easy to trace a photo, and that this tutorial is useless. The basic idea of this tutorial is to showcase how using the the process of tracing the basic shapes and contours of a photograph, as opposed to using predominately vector lines with strokes, as many beginning illustrators do, will result in a desirable, realistic yet stylized image. Step 1A

The A to Z of Adobe Illustrator The Adobe Illustrator toolbar is jam-packed with useful tools you may have used a million times or that may be entirely unfamiliar to you. Add to that the numerous panels and effects, and this program can create most any type of artwork. This A–Z list breaks down every tool in the Illustrator toolbar, with a link to a quick tip here on Tuts+ or a description of what each tool can do. Actions Panel: A panel that allows the user to perform a series of set tasks with the click of a button. Add Anchor Point Tool (+): This tool adds anchor points to a pre-existing path, allowing for more control over the path's shape, curves, and angles. Align Panel (Shift-F7): A panel from which to align selected objects with each other in a variety of ways. Appearance Panel (Shift-F6): A panel that not only keeps track of all attributes an object has, but can also be used to add or edit said attributes. Arc: A warp effect that controls an object or path's arc. Ellipse Tool (L): A common shape tool.

Photoshop :: Converting Guides To Lines Mar 31, 2011 MGD 64 lemonade to forum.cdr This isn't something I am in need of because in the future with this graphic I would just convert the background. Just wondering why it made those odd lines coming off of the words and the black bar (I don't know how the heck you guys can post large things, things with motion, etc. I have to make things miniature to put them on here) I assume it has something to do with how the original, that came from MillerCoors, has those layers of lines in it.
