Today I started the Lynda.com Adobe Illustrator CC 2013 One-on-On: Intermediate corse. Ch: 1 lessons: 1-6
For this lesson I locked the background image, placed The blue frame and lettering in to a sublayer called Frame, and edited/transformed a the “good” text into a 3D text layer.
The Original Image Used During The Full Duration Corse:
Before I started lesson involving the above image, I first moved this image to a different layer Named “patterns” and turned the visibility of that layer off.
Before visibility was turned off:
After visibility is turned off:
After this Part of the lesson was over I than turned my focus toward the other design. First I locked down the background image than added it to a different lay-er named “Image”.
I than moved the “good” text into a sublayer named “Safe” after witch I turned the visibility of the layer off.
Next I converted the “good” text layer into a outline and from there I transformed it into a 3D layer, later on I moved it into the sublayer “Safe” along with another copy of the original text.
And finally, I changed the light gray color surrounding the 3D “good” outline and colored it a shade of Medium blue, later regrouping all of the 3D layer together.
Next I will learn how to place the Spiro path into all of the letters of the word “good”.
What the Finalized image Should look like…
