DAY: 20;Thursday


Today I completed chapter 15 in the Illustrator CC 2013 One-on-One: Intermediate corse.

Chapter 15|Lesson 7: Creating a NEW pattern based on an existing one.

For this lesson I Created or rather Edited the Sea Spirals pattern to create 3 differently closed designs.(Circus seas was the one i was told to do, the other two were for practice.)

Circus Spirals:

Chapter 15|Lesson 8: Applying patterns to strokes and text.

For this lesson I Learned how to add a pattern to test, and how to use different patterns to create a almost 3D looking effect in illustrator.

For this Design I used the Murky Seas pattern, the Sea Spirals pattern, and the White strokes pattern, along with the SEA text.

Added the White Strokes pattern to the black text, then added the same effects to the image that I had added to the Stroke to finish up the design of the image.

Chapter 15|Lesson 9: Moving and Transforming patterns.

For this lesson I shifted the fill of this design ever so slightly, to off set it.Screen Shot 2016-09-08 at 9.29.35 AM (2).pngScreen Shot 2016-09-08 at 9.29.51 AM.png

Chapter 15|Lesson 10: Fixing problem legacy patterns.

For this pattern that was created in an older version of illustrator all I had to do was gel eat the clipping mask to get rid of the red seam shown in the image below.
