DAY: 38; Tuesday


Today I finished up Chapter 17 of the Adobe Illustrator CC 2015: Advanced corse…

Just Another Pretty Face (1986).


By. Deke McClelland.


Wall finishing up the work on this image I eventually ended up upscaling the resolution (or PPI) of the image from 300 PPI to 600 PPI…

Set at 600 PPI:

Set at 72 PPI:

Once I upscaled the image I changed the trace options, and the advanced print options so as to add back in lost detail, and fine tune the images look to make it look sharper.

At this stage I copied the image, it expanded, and changed the line weight value.

Next I resized the Hight (H) & Width (W) of the art word by x10, than adjusted the image to that size.Screen Shot 2016-10-04 at 8.50.58 AM.png

For these images the Idea was to be able to recreate the same steps that I did in the final section of the last image, with the added difference of adding a medium blue color to the rhino image.

I really don’t know that to call this thing it look like a tree with tentacles wearing a simple tunic or robes with a large fountain pen in its pocket…

Traced image:

This is the result of tracking the image and then changing the part of the image that is being traced from the Fill to the stroke, than I set the line weight to 20.



Duers Rhino.


By. Albrecht Duer.

For this beautifully drawn image I traced it.

Changed the tracing mode from Black and White to Grayscale.

And changed the fill color to a Medium Blue color.

I tried to do the something I did to the rhino, but it didn’t work out the same way…but it dose look pretty cool.
