Hello to all!

How's everything? Diwali is near but no fireworks :(

Yes, we have to avoid to reduce pollution so I think why not we try to illustrate fireworks on Adobe illustrator. It is so easy even a small kid can do it. You are not believing. OK fine, let's start the tutorial.

What will we use in this tutorial?

  • Pen tool
  • Gradients. That's it.

Step by Step tutorial now:

  • Open a New Document (CTRL/CMD + N)
  • Select the Rectangle Tool (M) and make sure the colour is set to black and cover up your artboard.


  1. Take your Pen Tool (P) and create a line with a slight arc. To start a new line just hit the Enter key to stop the pen tool from creating another segment. Continue to do this until you make it all the way around in a circle.
  2. Now that you have your lines in place Select all of your strokes go into your Stroke Panel and on the very bottom of the Stroke Panel, there is a Profile Dropdown. It has different options of line thickness. Select the one where it’s pointed on the end and fat in the centre. Once you have the stroke profile and depth that works for you Expand your strokes OBJECT -> EXPAND

  3. With your fireworks still selected let’s Group (CTRL/CMD + G) it all together. Now go into your Gradient panel and in the Type dropdown make sure to make it Radial. It is where you can be creative with your colours make sure your inner colour is white, and the exterior colours are something somewhat bright! The possibilities are endless!
  4. Once you have the colours, you like you can copy and past the firework graphic and change your colours in the Gradient Panel. And there you have it!

Wishing you all to have a colourful joyful Diwali . Keep Chilling

Abstract Art

Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th century, many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time.

Abstract art, non-figurative art, non-objective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be slight, partial, or complete. Abstraction exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for verisimilitude of the highest degree can be said to be abstract, at least theoretically, since perfect representation is likely to be exceedingly elusive. Artwork which takes liberties, altering for instance color and form in ways that are conspicuous, can be said to be partially abstract. Total abstraction bears no trace of any reference to anything recognizable. In geometric abstraction, for instance, one is unlikely to find references to naturalistic entities. Figurative art and total abstraction are almost mutually exclusive. But figurative and representational (or realistic) art often contains partial abstraction.

Step 1: Reference and Manual Drawing

First, we need lots of references to understand the helmet’s shape, proportion, and its reflection. Google Image is a good place to start. You can also search for images from helmet seller in eBay. Take your pencil and paper and then start drawing the helmet shape. Scan the result. We are going to use it as reference inside Illustrator.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 2: Drawing Helmet in Vector

We are going to use the scanned image as reference for drawing in Adobe Illustrator. Make new file in Illustrator (Ctrl + N) and then drag the image. From the Layers Panel, click the lock icon to prevent it from accidentally moved. Add new layer on top of the image.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet
Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 3

Using Pen Tool, start by drawing basic shape of the helmet. You can see that I’m not so strict with the line from the drawing. I add a bit of modification into the shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 4

We are going to draw the helmet’s rubber on its lower part. To do this, we draw the area, extends outside the helmet.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 5

Select the basic helmet shape, duplicate it by clicking Ctrl + C and then Ctrl + F. Select both shape, which are the duplicated helmet shape and the shape we drew earlier, and then select Intersect in The Pathfinder Panels.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Here is the result we have. We are going to use this same technique to draw other shapes.

Step 1

Let’s start with Actions panel. Actions can run any function in Adobe Illustrator. Also, you can attach hotkeys to your Actions. And Actions can run scripts of course.

Take Free Stock Master script for example. This script can automatically prepare vector files for microstock. At first, you should install the script. See how to do it in the User Guide of Free Stock Master. After installation, you can find the script in the menu File > Scripts.

Create a new document in the Illustrator. Then open the Actions panel (Window > Actions). Click the button Create New Set. You can write any name for your Actions.

Go to the menu of Actions panel and click New Action.

Write the name of your action in the next window. Choose hotkey for the action in the Function Key option. Finally, click the Record button.

Then you should stop the recording because we need to insert our script to the action manually. Click the button Stop Playing/Recording.

Go to the menu and press Insert Menu Item.

Insert cursor in the next window and go to the menu File > Scripts > FreeStockMaster_v10. This script appears in the window. Then click OK.

Now you can make your own hotkeys for all scripts.

But there is one bug in Adobe Illustrator. Actions with scripts a not work after reboot. We asked Adobe support about it. But now they don’t have a solution to this problem. So you should save your actions to prevent it. Go to the menu of Actions panel and click Save Actions. Now you have the file that can be used as a backup. Go to the menu and click Replace Actions or Load Actions and recover your actions if you have some problems after reboot.

Step 2

Now we can create the pattern. Draw any decorative element.

Select your decorative element and take the Reflect Tool (O). Hold Alt key and left click on the right anchor point. Set Vertical option and click Copy in the next window.

The result is an asymmetrical ornament. You should group all elements (Ctrl+G).

Now you can use Magic Monogram Light script. Select the ornament and run the script. Set 4 sides and click Create button.

The script makes the frame. You can group all elements too (Ctrl+G).

Add some art to the center of the frame. Then rotate it 90 degrees.

Finally select all and go to the menu Object > Expand. Then drag and drop it to the Symbol panel. Now we have a symbol on the Artboard for the pattern.

Step 3

Now you can use Magic Pattern Pro script which automatically creates seamless patterns from any sample of your art. Select the symbol on the Artboard and run the script.

Select the template in the drop down menu. Then click the Create button.

The script makes a seamless pattern.

Now you can edit the symbol if you want. Double click on it and draw something new for example.

Double click on any place of the Artboard to switch normal mode. Now you can see that all symbols are edited.

Select all (Ctrl+A) and group (Ctrl+G). Then go to the menu Object > Expand.

Step 4

You can use the Clipping Mask to hide redundant parts. Or try Magic Eraser script which automatically cuts and deletes objects outside Artboard.

Pick up colors and the seamless pattern is ready.

Finally, you should save file as *.AI (File > Save as). Now you can use Free Stock Master script to prepare vector file for microstock. This script scans vector files and fixes mistakes such as open paths, ghost shapes, bitmap, effects etc. Then you can save vector EPS-10 file.

Now you know how to use scripts and speed up your workflow. I hope you’ll find the tutorial useful! It’s easy to be fast and creative.

In this tutorial, we’ll be learning how to create a dolphin in the deep blue ocean using Adobe Illustrator.You’ll start by creating the deep blue ocean with the help of the Rectangle Tool and the Pen Tool along with some other effects (Gaussian Blur and Feather). We’ll also be using some basic tools and other simple vector techniques, along with the Grain effect for the creation of a detailed dolphin. To add depth, you will be shading and highlighting the body of the dolphin. Let’s start.

Open a New Document

1. Launch Illustrator and press (Ctrl + N) to create a New document. Select Pixels from the Units drop-down menu, enter 828 in the width box and 588 in the height box then click on the Advanced button. Select RGB, Screen (72ppi) and make sure that the Align New Objects to Pixel Grid box is unchecked before you click OK.

Create the Deep Blue Ocean

2. Let’s work on the creation of sands. Start by drawing a 826px by 582px object using the Rectangle Tool (M). Next, pick the Pen Tool (P) and create objects as you can see in the images below. You should end up with something like the final image.

3. Fill all the red and black objects with R=146, G=254, B=255 and add a 4px stroke (R=100, G=229, B=251), then go to the Effect > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Enter a 5px Radius and click OK, then go to the Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -3px Offset and click OK. Make sure that the new shapes are still selected, open the Appearance palette Window > Appearance and remove the Gaussian Blur section, then remove the stroke of the resulting shapes. Keep these results selected and apply a 5px Feather effect for them. Finally, move the resulting shapes 1px up and 6px to the right.

4. Fill the blue rectangle created in step 2 with R=14, G=78, B=220. Continue working with the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 928px by 254px object. Fill it with the linear gradient, then go to the Effect > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Enter a 15px Radius and click OK.

5. Keep working with the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 890px by 605px object then fill this object with the linear gradient as shown in the second image. Next, apply a 15px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting shape.

6. Let’s proceed with the light rays. Using the Rectangle Tool (M), create six objects with dimensions similar with the image below. Once your rectangles are drawn, fill them with the linear gradients as shown in the second image.

7. Keep working with the Rectangle Tool (M). Create four objects and fill them with the linear gradients as shown in the images below.

8. Reselect all the rectangles created in step 6 and step 7 and then go to the Effect > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Enter a 10px Radius and click OK, then reduce the Opacity of the results to 90%. Keep these results selected and go to the Object > Transform > Rotate. Enter a 7 degrees Angle and click OK.

Create the Dolphin

9. With the help of the Rectangle Tool (M), create a 655px by 133px object. Pick the Pen Tool (P) and draw an object as you can see in the second image. Once your object is drawn, convert all the anchor points of this object to smooth. With the help of the Direct Selection Tool (A), adjust the handles of the anchor points of the new object to get the result as shown in the fourth image below. After you are done adjusting the shape of the new object, apply a linear gradient as it is shown in the final image below.

10. Make a duplicate (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of the new shape created in step 9 and replace the existing color of it with new linear gradient. Keep the resulting shape selected. Go to the Effect > Texture > Grain. Follow the data as you can see in the second image and then click OK. Next, apply a 2px Feather effect for the result and set this result to Blending Mode Multiply, then reduce the Opacity to 20%.

11. We are going to add highlights on the dolphin to give it a 3D look. With the use of the Pen Tool (P), draw an object as shown below and fill it with R=197, G=207, B=194, then go to the Effect > Texture > Grain. Follow the data as you can see in the third image and click OK. Next, apply a 7px Gaussian Blur effect for the result and then set this result to Blending Mode Hard Light.

12.With the help of the Pen Tool (P), create an object as shown below and fill this object with R=72, G=141, B=202. Next, apply a 2px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting shape and reduce the Opacity to 70%. Keep working with the Pen Tool (P) to create an object as you can see in the third image. Once your object is drawn, select the shape created in step 10 and duplicate (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) it. Make sure that the new shape is still selected, hold down the Shift key, click on the red object and open the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder). Click on the Intersect button. Next, fill the resulting shape with R=72, G=141, B=202. Continue working with the Pen Tool (P) to create an object as shown in the seventh image and then fill it with R=85, G=172, B=212.

13. Select the two new shapes created in step 12 and apply a 10px Gaussian Blur effect for them. Now reselect and group (Ctrl + G) the four shapes created from step 11 up to this time. Next, select the shape created in step 10, duplicate (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) and bring it to front (Ctrl +Shift +Right Square Bracket). Make sure that the new shape is still selected, hold down the Shift key, click on the new group and go to the Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7).

Create the Mouth and Eye of the Dolphin

14. With the help of Pen Tool (P), create two curved paths as shown below.

Next, fill the remaining path with none and add a 2px stroke (R=12, G=51, B=74). Finally, apply the Width Profile 1 and a 1px Gaussian Blur effect for the result.

15. Let’s work on the eye. First, draw two objects as you can see in the images below. Once your objects are drawn, fill the red object with R=43, G=84, B=106. Next, fill the remaining object with the radial gradient and then go to the Effect > Stylize > Outer Glow. Follow the data as shown in the fourth image and click OK. Finally, reselect the two newly created shapes and apply a 7px Feather effect for them.

16. With the help of the Pen Tool (P), create an object and fill it with the radial gradient as shown in the images below. Apply a 5px Feather effect for the resulting shape.

17. Keep working with the Pen Tool (P), create an object as shown below and fill it with R=26, G=54, B=78. Next, duplicate (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) the new shape and replace the existing color of it with R=68, G=113, B=132. Reduce the size of the resulting shape as you can see in the third image. Make a duplicate (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of the new shape and replace the existing color of it with the radial gradient, then reduce the size of the resulting shape as you can see in the fourth image.

18. To add some details, first draw three paths as shown below. Once your paths are drawn, fill them with none and add a 1px stroke (apply the linear gradient across stroke). Next, apply the Width Profile 1 and a 1px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting objects. At this point, your dolphin should look roughly like the final image below.

Create the Tail Fluke

19. Let’s start by creating the tail fluke of the dolphin. First draw an object using the Pen Tool (P) and then fill it with the linear gradient similar with the images below.

20. Continue working with the Pen Tool (P) to create three objects. Fill them with the linear gradients as you can see in the images below. Next, reselect the newly created shape and apply a 3px Feather effect for it. You should end up with something like the final image below.

Create the Dorsal Fin

21. Now we’ll work with the dorsal fin. With the help of the Pen Tool (P), create an object as shown below and fill this object with R=62, G=145, B=167. Make a duplicate (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of the new shape and replace the existing color of it with R=34, G=67, B=79, then apply a 8px Feather effect for the resulting shape. Next, duplicate the new shape, replace the existing color of it with R=62, G=132, B=199 and go to the Appearance palette (Window > Appearance), then click on the Feather section. In the Feather box, enter a 2px Radius and click OK. Make sure that the result is still selected and go to the Effect > Texture > Grain. Follow the data as shown in the fourth image and click OK. Finally, change the Blending Mode of the resulting shape to Multiply and lower the Opacity to 30%.

22. To add some details, first draw a curved path as shown below. Next, fill this path with none and add a 2px stroke (R=42, G=98, B=152). Finally, apply the Width Profile 1 and a 1px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting shape.

Create the Flipper

23. It’s time to draw the flipper. With the help of the Pen Tool (P), create two objects as shown in the images below. Once your objects are drawn, fill the black object with the linear gradient as you can see in the third image. Next, fill th read less

Robots are the future! They are useful tools to making life easier for humans. They may also turn to become destructive and wipe out civilization as we know it! In today’s post I will show you how to create a quick and simple robot vector in Illustrator. We will show you how to create it using the rectangle tool, ellipse tool, strokes and the bulge warp effect.

Let’s Begin!
Start off by opening up Adobe Illustrator and create a New Document. For this let’s have theArtboard size to be about 1000px x 1000px. You really can have it at any size. 

Now we will take the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a rectangle shape. While the shape is still selected go into Effect->Warp->Bulge. Make sure you select preview check box to see the amount of bulge you are applying. Click on the Vertical Option and Bend about 20-25%.

Once you have the bulge how you like it select your Rounded Rectangle Tool. Make sure the radius is pretty rounded and in the center top of the bulged rectangle. 

Next take your Ellipse Tool (L) and hold down the SHIFT key to make sure it stays perfectly round. 

Now take your Line Tool (\) and go from the circle to the rounded rectangle base. Go into your STROKE panel. Increase the weight of the line to about 50px or so. To make a point go to the bottom of the panel and select the shape that looks like an elongated triangle. Once you have that select the circle, line and the base and Move to Back CTRL/CMD SHIFT. 

Next it’s time to build a torso! Take you Rectangle Tool (M) and create a big box slightly overlapping the head. Go into Effect->Warp->Bulge. In the panel make sure the Vertical is selected and make your distortion -19 in the vertical setting. 

It’s not time to build the arms! Take the Rounded Rectangle Tool and make a vertical pill shape. This is sort of like the ball joint to the shoulder. Move to Back (CTRL/CMD SHIFT )

Next take the Pen Tool (V) and create a curved line. Make sure your stroke is set to 50 pt or so. 

Take your Ellipse Tool (L) and Hold down the shift ket to create your hand base.

Take your Line Segment Tool (\) and create a short line to start your fingers. Make the thickness about 30pt or so and make the Cap rounded.

Now Copy (CTRL/CMD + C) and Paste in Place (CTRL/CMD + Shift + V) and then take your rotate tool to adjust as you see fit.

Select the arm pieces, Copy (CTRL/CMD + C) and Paste in Place (CTRL/CMD + Shift + V)and Reflect Vertically. This will make the other arm.

Now got to your Ellipse Tool (L) and Hold down the Shift key to make a perfect circle for the eye. 

Copy (CTRL/CMD + C)  and Paste in Place (CTRL/CMD + Shift + V) then shift the eye over.

Take your Ellipse Tool (L)  and create an oval. 

Once you have the mouth to the right size. Select the Torso piece and Bring to the Front (CTRL/CMD + Shift + ] ) 

Now take your Rectangle Tool (M) and Ellipse Tool (L) and create your button plates. 

Next it’s time to create the legs! Take Two Circles using some more Ellipse Tool (L) and your Line Segment Tool (\) and place everything to the Back of the torso (CTRL/CMD + Shift + [ ) 

Copy (CTRL/CMD + C) the 3 pieces of the leg and Paste in Place (CTRL/CMD + Shift + V ) and move the pieces to the side to create your other leg.

Now for the fun part! Coloring in your robot! Take any color palette you would like to fill in your robot. For this I am using the Basic Print Color Palette.

Once you have all of your robot sections colored in you are done! This is a basic layout for your robot but you can add definition to the robot by using the gradients for coloring. I had used just the basic Print swatch to get the very basic conveyed out.
