So in this class, we will do these icons step by step so you can create different variations off greeting cards. So when you already and you want to learn more how to design some birthday design elements and roll now and let's get started. 2. Clown: hi and welcome toe, but the icons designs many just honest urban. And the in this video, we're going toe design, thes good icons, birthday icons. And if you remember last week we have designed this beautiful birthday greeting card. Maybe we could design some elements where they icons here. So in case you want or design other variations or other greeting cards, maybe you need some elements like these. So in this class, we are going toe designed. This in four videos were going toe design disperse on the first video. We're going to design this clown, and the other one is gift A cupcake and, of course, in balloons. So these are the icons that we are going toe design here, I will be using Adobe straight or C C. You can use even use any straight or versions like spy vs six. Hey, doesn't mother. Everything that I'm going to do here is fairly simple. Okay, so, um Okay, so you start off course, you can speak in your document goto file and break new in. Here's the short cut key. When did it end like that? And, um, you can put any name here? I put the clown and then for a profile on this Aaron and going toe, um, paint this fire, I guess you goingto do some. Hey, I got so, uh, proprieties. Okay. Size. It's 9 60 by 5 50 Except, yes, copy Mine. And for quarter mode. Yes, baby. Getting saving the door and everything if happy my nephew for natural. Okay, I'm just like, OK, and it's our kind of us. I'm gonna get this. So we have a reference off, but the icons that we're going to do bigger. Okay, again. See this Eigen? This clown I gone is very simple, actually composed off a lot of ships. And as a beginner, that's what you want to do it. I mean, you're starting. You want to start with the simple shapes, then we're going to complicate toe complicated stuff so I can see in the same apparently simple. And some ships are actually many police, um, shape. So I'm sure you how I get into this in simple steps. So first, let's get d and it's store. We're going to draw a face, do something like this like an egg. Okay, I'm gonna get the corner of this. I guess use May dropper, and the other is a de Toby zero. Thank you. Okay. And I think that next get the that ex election toes, you can click this and use your give it all up if this will be a chain or something and then adopting this Fine throwing up for jury Shifty rain data. I looked like a an egg. Right. Next we're going toe builds, build all the the elements of the base here the ice, no smiles, everything. Maybe in going make it an even bigger like this. It doesn't matter. Resume in nature. So first, let's get the ice for the I sniff getting d she, uh, And if story, I'm gonna throw somewhere here. Yes, sir. I traveled toward going up on seeing a closer 70 for 3 to 5. Now I'm gonna do me again. Whether I'm gonna don't forget this was your and then drug down. So yes, something. I think this life. Okay. No, open your butt finder. I don't see a lot of indo angry here are shipped controlled at night like all this thesis circles. And you mean minus friend. I think this one now we have one ice Okay. I'm gonna forget. Here things are being you're getting down here and another one duplicated right there under and then shifty new big toe and then drank to the right side. And then it's like a a board or something off the loan, right? Your nose inside That said that ball. So, yes, under Schicchi like this make it, you know, close here so we can see changing the guard are corner for this ball. Be 517 Okay. And meeting another. Syria guns the stool again. A little something here. Smaller circles. No picket holder out and then shifty right there. And then for these So actually, pretty simple. What I did here. CNN the line segment. Make sure it's in the center of the I s against in my guides. It's now open. If you don't see it, you can goto view from our guys. OK, control you again. I'm gonna position it. My cars are here for your shift key and then drunk that aside, maybe something okay like that. And then it's at some stroke here on the storage to be eight, and yet exchanged the gardener tool company. This our our more nose eight picks us and then the stroke panel click on this throne. So get this corner for day growing corn ear it looks at from the ground. Looks at So this making happy Forget this the shape tool one must never see this scandal. Yes, uh, click and hold and then shape when you have to do it. Yes. Click this line and then drunk right there. Let me And then while still selected Noto object. Click, Expand.

But they didn't just listen, upset back here like all Are you saying ontology? Make it one group and then Goto but upset paths. And then let's see what we have here upset three pixels and then let's create preview. It seems okay. That's what I use here on the other one, and gonna select D around the joints, make okay. He started really on top. Why would saying? But first list means let's make it a united to meet the one shape right there. You can see it's on top. Okay, I'm gonna send the buck. I'm Jake Lynch.

I'm gonna here on the that this document gonna precise it and then zooming. Okay, so we have some reference for our design, and it's pretty simple to sign out shooting. So here's gets a prospect perspective to start some shape around. It shapes circles, triangles. Pretty easy, actually. So it started. I think we were going to finish it within 10 minutes. So, right, person, we're going toe toe This, uh, like a plastic. Uh, I don't know much about it in English, but this one plastic up yes, d around the tangled tool. Actually, we can make it better what they need, and you get the rectangle toe like this stain of some pattern. I'm gonna We're gonna get this. Yes, Qatar. Qatar is E 35 c. Okay, and to make this arounder. There are many ways after they out to do this, um, so show you one, you can actually get younger point all and, you know, like this. And did I get like that? And have you had that design, see? Pretty simple, actually. Or are we gonna sleep? A made a ton of the estimate is three of us here are. If you don't have that, I think you have this. And then you get the store and then draw. All right, under and then this. You know, there are something like this pretty easy. You know, if you're using Adobe Illustrator for many years, our months, you have some idea how great things to make it simple making design, you know, easy for you.

So for this video, I have been doing something and, uh see you next time let me know what you think about this video and see you next time. That's all 6. Free transform tool: Hi and welcome. My name is Destiny. And in this video, I'm going to show you how to use the free transform tool here in an administrator. Uh, probably if you're using the say six or six. Piper, I'm not sure if you have different sees six this option that I'm going to show you later, but in CS five and lower than that probably don't have this option. So first toe toe have these Preakness full 33 transformed all Yes. Click this like there's no option here, but first you need to do is select an object. For example, we have ah, city. Ah, my tongue is here. Okay, First click and object using the selection tool and then the free transform tool or click press letter e in your Kilburn like this, and then you will see deceptions. Okay, so you have you have a constrain. It means that I even you don't. You don't have to oppress your shift key on your keyboard. Still Ah, constraining a perfect, uh, sheep. Okay, now that everyone is respected, distort what it does ihsaa. And you're like this corner knowns. You can see there's a perspective or on the other side. I'm not pressing any, Uh, keys on my keyboard. Okay. I'm just ah, licking drug. The other one is stored free. The start. Okay, So for example, you and Lisa, right corner no one. See that? The starting and that. And now for the ah, no reversion. Nexus pipe. If you click on the free transform, there's nothing here. There's no option like this. So what you have to do is tow first. Once you select the, uh, free transform tool, you have to drag it first and then press your control like that to show the, uh, uh, distort effect toe to show that so you can do it. It is the start. And for example, if you want to, I am perspective, distort. Like the free transform, it'll again and I get. And then well, you're control and then shift key. So I think any toe you need to add the shift key so placed those three keys Schiff out and control So you can make a perspective distort, so OK, so the soul for this video. And I hope you learned something with the free transform Dole. So just remember that you need to hold a control or not, Alky and then shift key. Also door great distortion in your ship. So that's not from this video to you next time.
