Today, I completed Chapter 1 (technically chapter 11) of Adobe Illustrator CC 2013 One-on-One: Intermediate.
The Starting Image:
First I added the Spiro design to the image, group the fill & Spiro design, add a new fill, and colored that new fill Medium blue…
Next I had to realize the outer portion of the 3D letter outline of the design in order to mach it up with the inner portion. (Because I accidentally moved it without selecting the whole thing.)
Than I repositioned the entire design so that it matched up with the finished designs look.
and Finally I was done with the design.
I also practiced some of what I learned from the chapter on an image that I’ve been using for my background on the main monitor.
I picked this image of Aoba Suzukaze from the new show NEW GAME! because it was kind of a funny picture that is extreme well drawn, and i wanted to add a little something extra to it.
Work In Progress:
This screen shot was taken after I converted the Text “NEW GAME!” into a path layer and I was playing around with the colors.
Finalized Image With 3D Text:
This screen shot was taken after I converted the text path into 3D Text, than colored it Purple-ish/Pink-ish color and light blue.
