Today I completed lesson 1-6 of the Lynda.com Illustrator One-on-One: Intermediate corse.
First I created a circle using the poler grid tool to create a group of circles, next I ungrouped all of the circles, cut the bottom points, shifted every point over by one to create the image shown below.
Next I selected the horizontal line that ran in the center of the two spirals, deleted it, and than colored the spiral with the left side end point red.
Once done, I then copied the red spiral, than passed it on to a different default training file.
As you can see my job here was to make sure the spiral I had made and the ones found on the training file were of the same design, and shape.
For this lesson I used the pattern generator to create a seamless Sea Spiral pattern.
First off, I selected the spiral design, went up to the “Object Menu” selected “Pattern” than “Make.”
After changing the values of the bound box to W:168|H:158.7345, I checking the done button, than added used the Rectangle Tool with a fill of the Sea Spiral Patter to create the seamlessly generated pattern.
For this lesson I learned about the differences in the tile types.
