PostSubject: Vector Tutorial [ADOBE_Illustrator]   Tue May 29, 2007 10:23 pm

This tutorial shows you how to create a nice 3D vase in 5 minutes with Illustrator CS2 3D Revolve Tool. It is fun and easy!

1. Create a path


First, create a path like the image shown below with the Pen Tool, go to menu Effect > 3D > Revolve



The 3D Revolve Options window should pop up and look like the image below. Click on More Options
if the lower portion window is not showing. You can leave most of the
setting as default, but add an additional light spot by click the New Light icon and drag it to the lower left corner as shown. Enter 35 for Blend Steps, maximum Blend Steps is 256, higher Blend Steps results better rendering quality but also increases file size and memory.



2. Create the flower symbol


Now use the Ellipse Tool, create a flower like the
image below. I have a very simply flower illustration here, but you can
create anything as you like. Drag the flower to the Symbols Library Pallate to create a new symbol. If your Symbols Pallate is not showing, press Ctrl+Shift+F11 or go to Windows > Symbols to show Symbols.



3. Create Map Art


With the vase object selected, in Appearance Pallate, double click on the 3D Revolve effect icon(f) to change the 3D Revolve Options.

http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/219/23730237az2.gif " border="0" alt="" />
When the 3D Revolve Options window pop ups, click on Map Art button.



Map Art options


Check Preview option so you can preview the result. At the top where it says, Surface, use the arrow buttons to locate the surface that you want to Map Art.
Notice there is a red wireframe on your object which show you the
surface youíve selected. In this case, it is 4 of 5. From the Symbol
drop down, select the symbol that youíve created in the previous step.
You can position and resize the symbol in way as you want. You can also
create multi-surface Map Art by selecting the Surface then the Symbol. Click OK when you are happy with the result.



Final


Thatís it! With just 3 simple steps, I just created a nice 3D Vase with Illustrator 3D Revolve Tool.



try it! happy happy happy

We start off with a stock photo, any stock photo. For this technique its best to get a stock where the hair is already very detailed, so we won't have to guess where hair grows and where it doesn't grow.








Zoom 400% in your picture. Choose the lightest part of the hair to start at. Get the eyedropper tool and choose your color, or choose a colour yourself.








Take the pen tool and start at your strand of hair. Click on a point, drag untill you get the desired angle, and release. Make one raster, and then go to the tool bar to group all of your rasters. Continue untill you have all the desired strands in that shade.

Make sure the vectors are set on group. (check setting underneath 2 button)









After you are done with this particular colour, make a new layer under this layer, and repeat steps 2 and 3.




Finished! After a long process, you should get something like this. (I made the face white so you could see the hair better. As always, practice makes perfect!

Full detailed tutorial on how to draw and trace people from a photo. Learn how to create realistic illustration with just simple gradient fill. No massive Gradient Mesh!

Version: Illustrator 9+

1. Place a photo

First place a photo in Layer 1 by File > Place or Copy & Paste from clip board. Double click on Layer 1 to change the Layer Options. Set Dim Images to: 30% and lock layer.


2. Start tracing

Make a new layer (Layer 2). Hold down Ctrl key and click on the eye icon of Layer 2 to view Layer 2 in Outline mode.


Use the Pen Tool and start tracing the basic features of the girl. While you are tracing, there are couple shortcut keys you should know in order to work more faster.

These shortcuts are:

* Ctrl+[ = Send Backward (This will send object back 1 step)
* Ctrl+] = Bring Forward (This will bring object front 1 step)
* Ctrl+Shift+[ = Send to Back (This will send object all the way to the back)
* Ctrl+Shift+] = Bring to Front (This will bring object all the way to the front)
* Ctrl+F = Paste in Front (This will paste object in front with same position)


3. Make shadow

Draw a new path as shown (top). Then Copy the base path of the face and Paste in Front. Select the copied base path and the new path, open your Pathfinder, Alt-click on Intersect shape areas.

Use the same technique from previous step and make all shadow paths for the overall illustration. You donít have to get into the details yet, one simple shadow path of each part is good enough (ie. eye, lips, shirt, body, etc). Remember to use Ctrl+C for copy; and Ctrl+F to paste object in front. Trust me, this will save you a lot of time!


4. Fill in base color

Now fill in the base color for the face, eye, lips, and eyebrow.


5. Shadow gradient

Fill the shadow path of the face with a Gradient (white-skin tone) and select Multiply for Blending Mode.

Select the other shadow paths and use the Eyedropper Tool to copy the gradient fill of the main shadow path.
Select the other shadow paths and use the Eyedropper Tool to copy the gradient fill of the main shadow path.

For the lip and eye shadow, use the Eyedropper to copy the base fill and select Multiply Blending Mode.

6. Body

Use the same technique, copy the gradient fill for the body. Note you might to adjust the gradient of each shadow path to blend in with the overall illustration.


7. Hair

Pretty much the same, fill 1 path with the gradient, then use the Eyedropper Tool to copy the fill.


8. Shirt

Same technique as the previous steps.


9. Skirt

Fill the skirt with a blue gradient, then use the Eyedropper Tool to copy the fill for the shadow.


10. Hair details

Now you can add more details to the hair. Make shadow effect by adding Multiply paths. Add some highlights by using lighter gradient color. If you want, you can add more details to the clothes, lips, or add a cool tattoo on her body.


Final

After you get used to this tracing technique, you can basically trace anything!



HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT!!! GOOD LUCK :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
