CE23: Rotate Tool and Reflect Tool
Create starburst patterns. Overlay on top of one another and keep building using blending modes in Illustrator (Transparency Panel)
Create at least 10 different combinations.
Lets explore the Blend Tool today. The Blend tool allows us to create blends between shapes and colors.
Follow along with this Illustator tutorial.
Save and post as CE22.
Brushes and Pencils work similar to Photoshop brushes, but their “look is very different. Remember that Illustrator works with vectors so you will most likely notice that the edges of brushes and pencil marks have a distinct look about them.
We are going to eventually use these exercises to create a hand drawn, hand lettered type poster as our next project!
Experiment with the Brush, Pencil, Blob Brush and Width Tool in a 6×6″ composition.
The Direct Select Tool allows you to select individual parts of a shape/object. If you choose to change the way type looks, remember that you have to select type and then right click and pick “CREATE OUTLINES”. This will break up the type into a vector shape which you can now transform using the Direct Select Tool.
