Masks in Adobe Illustrator

As a design instructor, I bring my years of experience to help my students strengthen their creativity...

Mask literally means to hide. We already know about clipping mask where you draw a path over the image or shape and then hide the unwanted areas.

Mask literally means to hide. We already know about clipping mask where you draw a path over the image or shape and then hide the unwanted areas.

Tip: You can also use Effect > Stylize> Feather which will soften the edges of the shape or image which is inside the mask, or otherwise. (The result will be a raster, the max is 250pt)

In the terminology of masking, black means to hide, white means to reveal, gray means to partially hide.

  1. I pasted two images on the artboard, one on the top and another at the bottom, they are partially overlapping each other horizontally in the center.
  2. On the top image, we will draw a shape (rect) which will cover that entire image and we will cut that shape.
  3. We will still keep the top image selected and will go to Window > Transparency SHIFT+CTRL+F10
  4. Click on the top right corner of the transparency panel and click on Make Opacity Mask, you will now see a tiny black thumb which accompanies the thumb of the image in the transparency panel. You will also see a tiny chain or link icon which is connecting both of the thumbs. At the same moment you will see that the image is no longer visible and you have 3 buttons, release, clip and invert.
  5. You will click on the black thumb and you will go to Edit > Paste in Front
  6. Now go to Gradient panel and confine the gradient only to black and white and you can change the angle per the need, for example 90 degree. How much portion of your image is visible within the mask is decided by the volume of black and white in the gradient panel, if you want to reveal more you will obviously drag the stop of the white slider in the gradient ramp more.
  7. If you want to totally hide the black area, you will click on the black stop in the gradient panel and you will make its opacity 0%.
  8. Remember till now you are in the mask mode, so you have to exit this mode by clicking again on the thumb of your image in the transparency panel.
  9. You can also disable the opacity mask to temporarily hide the applied effect.
  10. You can release the opacity mask if you no longer need it.
  11. Once you are done with all the above steps and you exit the opacity mask mode, if you feel the need to again edit the mask, you have to again go to the transparency panel and click on the mask thumb and edit the gradient.
  12. There can be masks inside the mask, for example first you may need to apply clipping mask, and then you use opacity mask and then again if you feel then need to apply clipping mask you may do so, this can be done as many times as you need. When you need to access the inside portion or the subject, you may double click on the masked object. You can also use the direct selection tool to select the objects inside the mask.

You can increase or decrease the opacity of the shadow, can decide the distance between the target shape and the shadow (which is called offset) and can also decide the blurness, as well as color/darkness of the shadow. This is further controllable through the apperance panel.

Freeform Gradients in Adobe Illustrator CC 2019

As usual, we know that when we double click on the gradient tool or when we navigate to Window>Gradient, it pops up the gradient panel, and when we click on the gradient bar, it fills the color either in linear or radial mode. Apart from these 2, the new update is freeform gradient.

One of the new features in Illustrator CC 2019 is named Freeform Gradients (Diffuse Gradients). The new Freeform Gradients allow you to create natural and photo-realistic gradients. Gradients can be created using points or lines. All you need to do is to click on the canvas to add points which can be moved and adjusted.

In other words, we can call it simplified mesh.

There are 2 methods to deal with the freeform gradient, either you will use points or lines.

If you are using points, it will generate a new color stop on the object with every click and when you double click on that stop, directly on the shape, it will give you live editing on the shape itself, which can be dragged in the desired direction, and if you do not need one of the stops just click on the trash button.

When you use the line, it will give you controls as if you are moving the colors from one point to another with direct selection or pen tool or anchor tool. Remember, we are not talking about these tools, but the controls it gives are like this.

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

How To Draw High Heels?

I am having Sound knowledge of Adobe Creative cloud CC 2018. I deals in many creative domain such as...

Step 1: How big are the feet? You have the unfinished leg and have marked the floor level already.From the ground up draw a Centerline that’s a half-head long.

Step 1: How big are the feet?

You have the unfinished leg and have marked the floor level already.
From the ground up draw a Centerline that’s a half-head long. If you are not drawing a whole figure, but just the foot it should be 4x the width of the leg just over the ankle.
Use a small point to mark the middle of the line.
how to draw shoes

Step 2: Important “2:35”

Imagine the clock. If the Centerline was it’s arms the time would be 12:30. Right?
Now draw a second guideline with the same length as the first and make it show 2:35. Close it within an ellipse as shown in the illustration.

Tip: This tutorial is about drawing really high stiletto heels. If you want some more flat, comfortable ones all you have to do is move the “clock arms” to 3:40 or whichever height you prefer.

how to draw shoes

Step 3: Heel and Toes

In the upper corner of the ellipse draw a circle. Use the ellipse’s size as reference.
In the lower corner draw an ellipse that touches the Centerline. The 2:35 o‘clock line should pass through the middle of the ellipse. This is for the toes.
how to draw high shoes

Step 4: Draw the sole

Connecting the circle and the ellipse draw the foot arch. Note that under the heel the curve is straight.
Mark the place of the ankle. It’s situated closer to the Centerline than to leg’s outline.
how to draw shoes

Step 5: Ankle and guidelines

Draw the ankle and join the heel with the leg. Under the heel draw a triangle that will be used as guideline for the spike heel.
Pull a horizontal line from the heel circle’s midway and mark the middle of the toes ellipse.
how to draw shoes

Step 6: Draw the heel

Draw the heel. Use the little triangle to help you with the arch and make sure the heel is perpendicular to the ground surface.
Use the lines from step 5 to build the instep curve. The line pulled from the circle should mark the most bulging out section of the instep.
how to draw shoes

Step 7: Shoe guidelines

Finish the toe box and draw new “clock arms” pointing 1:35 this time.
how to draw shoes

Step 8: Shoe contours

Refine the shoe contour and don’t forget to make it wrap around the feet.
how to draw shoes
This was the method I use to draw high heel shoes. With practice you will find these steps easier and easier.
Are you ready to experiment with different hight and forms? Open your sketch book and have fun!

how to draw high heels

 


It doesn’t look right! Common mistakes:

how to draw shoes error how to draw shoes error fixed

Error 1: The foot came too large for this leg. Always make sure that the length of the Centerline you draw in STEP 1 is 4x the widht of the leg just over the ankle.
Be careful with the heel and keep it parallel to the floor. Better make it slightly curved inwards than outwards.

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.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 6

These following shapes are made using the same techniques used earlier.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 7

Draw following shape on its mouth area.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 8

We need to add gap by adding another slightly bigger shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 9

Add following to be used as a ventilation hole.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 10

Next, draw its visor.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 11

We are going to draw the end part of the visor. Start by drawing a circle and a rectangle on its center. Select the rectangle shape, right click and then select Transform > Rotate. Set its rotation angle to 30° and then click Copy button.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Here’s the duplicated shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 12

While the shape is still selected, hit Ctrl + D a few times to repeat the transformation process until we have the rectangles in full circle.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 13

Select all the rectangles and the circle behind them. From The Pathfinder Panels, click Unite icon to combine all into one shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet
Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 14

We want the shape to be less edgy. Choose Effect > Stylize > Round Corners. Set its Radius to 5 pt and then click OK.

Step 15

Combine the shape to turn it into part of the visor.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 16

We are going to draw bolt that attach the visor to the helmet. Draw some circles on the same origin point.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 17

Add plus sign made from two rectangles. Put them behind the small circles.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet
Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 18

Add smaller bolt by duplicating the previous shape and then transform it size.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 19

Draw nose cover behind the cover.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 20

Use Pen Tool to draw inner padding. I use a bunch of them because I’m planning on breaking them down into several separated shapes.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

This is the result when all the shapes is filled with white and stacked in the right place.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 21

Let’s add ventilation system on top of the helmet. Start by drawing the following shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 22

Draw its other side to make it appears three-dimentional.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 23

Manually, draw some holes on the shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 24

Duplicate the basic shape and then place it behind the helmet’s basic shape.

I think this is looking good. We’ll add the detail later in Photoshop.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 25: Exporting to Photoshop

Select all the shapes and then hit Ctrl + C to copy them.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 26

Open up Photoshop. Make new file. Paste the helmet vector by clicking Ctrl + V. You will have option for pasting metode. If you want to keep as is, just as a vector line in Illustrator, you can choose Smart Object. But, here we want to use the helmet shape as vector paths and shape. Select your shape layer and then click OK

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Here’s what we have now. All the vectors are presented as vector paths in a layer shape.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 27: Preparing the Layer Shapes

Double click the layer shape and change its color to something vibrant and striking. This will help us to differentiate each part of the helmet easily.

Tutorial Photoshop Drawing a Helmet

Step 29

Use >strong>Move Tool, the one with black arrow, Select basic shape of the helmet. Move them into new layer by clicking Ctrl + Shift + J. Change its color to new one.
