This course is the gateway to people who are starting the vector graphics. We will see many exercises that will take you from the simple to truly amazing things. You'll be able to design any kind of vector arts with confidence.
Adobe Illustrator CC at your fingertips.
This course explores "Adobe Illustrator CC" right through practical exercises. This course begins with the main tools and then with a series of exercises to practice.
This program is tool almost mandatory for anyone who is interested in graphic design.
This course is unique because it addresses the program almost fully. Right through video tutorials instead of boring theory. With this course you will be able to work in a wide range of work related to the graphic world.
At the end of this video you will be able to create new documents based on a profile or a template.
Once we are able to create documents and modify them, it’s time to start working on Illustrator.But before we need to understand how does the workspace works.
In this video we’ll learn something vital and very important… our hands inside the program to grab things, move, rotate, scale and modify them.I’m talking about the pointers. The black pointer, Selection Tool, and the white pointer, Direct Selection Tool.
It is important to make zoom in and out the document, to move around, and set the view fit on the screen. This we could navigate to far view or to closer details to modify the little objects, or inside a zoomed area we would like to move around.
In this video we’re going to learn something basic but very important… I mean, the right way to duplicate and copy graphic objects: general copying, duplicating and pasting.
This is very short tip… but very important too. When we have objects inside Illustrator, they have a position above or underneath relative to the other objects.
This time, we’ll learn about specific lesson: Grouping and Ungrouping several graphic objects inside Adobe Illustrator.
This video is about the generalities of using text inside Illustrator. There are two main groups: The Title text and the Paragraph text or mass text.
This time, we’re going to make the Univision logo. At least the older version, which is useful for us to learn many things.
In this tutorial we will see how to create curves for stroke lines and also we will learn how to generate curves for fill color too.This logo will helps us to grasp those new concepts.
At the end of this video you will be able to make MasterCard's logotype with Adobe Illustrator.
With this Toyota logo we'll see a basic introduction about how to use gradients with Adobe Illustrator.
The main purpose of this tutorial is to learn "how to design amazing icons" using illustrator. We'll draw message balloon icon with many shades of red.a flat bevel to create a deep feel and a fancy shadow projection. This icon is build using only basic shapes like triangles and rounded squares.
The icon we'll going to draw is commonly used to represent a man user.
Base on basic geometric shapes like circle, ovals with missing parts, inclined rectangle, half ovals with rounded corners. And typical shadows 45 degrees and some cuts to create light and shadows. we'll going to draw this icon of a man.
This clock icon is a classic of icon design.This shape, is a clock icon based on circles and rectangles with sharp shadows and highlights made based on circle's intersections and also with duplicates.
At the end of this video you will be able to make a Truck or transportation modern flat icon with Adobe Illustrator.
To test the things that we can do with Illustrator's 3D tools, we’re going to extrude objects, just as an exercise.
Going on with the 3D instructions, let’s try to make measuring tape.
Now, I want to put textures to each one of these layers. For that, I’ll help from geometrical figures.
Continuing with the Extrude and 3D, let’s try to develop a gift box. For that, we have 2 rectangles,and 3 lines that are going to be the ribbons.
Let’s use another feature named Revolve instead of Extrude. For that, I’ve brought some vectors, available for you, some half objects that are based on radial figures.
We can use Revolve with many object to create complex 3D illustrations. Here we have 4 examples.
Using many flat vectors we will develop a Sandglass with Revolve in illustrator.
Based on an image of a feather we are going to get a 3D look.
We are going to start making illustrations, and we’ll try to make a pop art illustration, with one of the most pop figure, which is Marilyn Monroe.
This video is about to give some volume for all the lines.
In this occasion, after all the lines are done in the illustration, we’re going to work in the colors layer.
To get a more pop effect in this illustration, we need to give this fill color a sensation of halftones or little circles.
This videos shows how to sketch geometrical child style animals.
Let's make the basic geometric figures for the Hippo Drawing
Let's make the basic geometric figures for the Giraffe drawing.
Let's make the basic geometric figures for the lion drawing.
Let's make the basic geometric figures for the monkey drawing.
Let's add some colors to the hippo.
Let's add some colors to the giraffe.
Let's add some colors to the lion.
Let's add some colors to the monkey.
In this class we’re going to work with the Perspective tools, which are:
The Perspective Grid Tool and Perspective Selection Tool.
If we have an illustration that we want to make in perspective, which we done using pencils or something like that, and we use it as reference
