1. Introduction: Hello and welcome digital illustrations has multiple applications. One of my favorite is to create art prints are recent art print collection utilized Pantone's 2016 color trends and a contemporary tribal technique. This class teaches that creative tribal style. Using Pantone's 2017 spring color palettes, students will learn how to trace an image into Adobe Illustrator. I make organic shapes and textures at RGB color codes to your Swatch library. Create both patterns used radiant color and finish the art print in a professional frame. A ble manner. If you don't already have Adobe Illustrator, you can get a free trial at adobe dot com. Please join me in class and learn this fun, easy technique. 2. Overview: Hello and welcome to the overview of this class. First of all, if you don't already have Adobe Illustrator, you can download a free trial in adobe dot com. And I will be providing this image of the bear for you in the downloadable section of this class so that you can place it and trace it, just like will be doing in the following lessons. The dimension of the image that I use is square. I fit this image into a 20 by 20 inch frame because it's vector arised. You can also enlarge it so that it goes on a huge frame so that you can print it and put it over furniture if you like, I'll also be giving you a download of this image so that you have the RGB codes at hand. When you add them to your Swatch library, I really look forward to teaching this class. If you have any questions, you can post them here or email me at hello at airy north dot com. I'd love to see your completed images when you're done. Okay, let's get started. I'll meet you in class 3. Set up your workspace + art board: Hello and welcome in this lesson. We're going to set up our adobe illustrator workspace with an art board. I'm gonna come to file new. I'm gonna call this new document Bear 20 by 20. The size will be customized in inches and I'm going to make this 20 inches by 20 inches to fit the frame. And here's our 20 by 20 inch art board. I'd like to make sure that I'm working about an inch in on all sides. So I'm going to come over to the rectangle tool, click anywhere on my workspace or are bored on. I'm going to make a 19 inch by 19 inch rectangle. I want to center that on my art board, some coming to my ex access and making it half the value of my art. Bored Meier boards 20. So half the value is 10 and the same thing with the Why 10. And that's going to center my 19 inch square perfectly inside my 20 inch art. Bored. I just want to make sure that I don't cross this line so that when I do frame the image, it will look perfectly centered While this is selected. I'm gonna come toe object, and I would like to lock this into place. By doing that, I'm not going toe accidentally select the rectangle and then drag it around. So now that I have my art space set up, I'd like to come over and select. Some colors will come to window and click on colors, and here are my color swatches. I'll be adding some pattern swatches to this as we go along and show you a kind of folks watch pattern that we can use in these lectures in the next lecture will be placing our bear on the art board. 4. Trace the bear image on Adobe Illustrator: Hello and welcome back in this lesson, we're going to place and trace the bear onto our Our port will be giving you a copy of this bear image so that you can practice with it or you can draw your own. So I've already copied it. I'm just going to place it on my art board. I'd like to center it. The X is already 10. The why is almost 10. I'm just gonna make that 10. Now. If I wanted to, I could make this bear a little larger or move it around for now. I'm going to keep it where it is and potentially move it around later. Or as I'm working on it, I don't want accidentally drag it out of place. So I'm going to click on it, come toe object and lock it in place. And now I want to make sure that my fill is none. I'm going to make my stroke a very bright color so that I can keep track of it. We'll make it this bright yellow. I'll keep it at one point and select pencil tool. At this point, I'm just going to start to draw along the lines that I've already have going outside the line a little bit. That's okay. I can make adjustments later. - This line that we're making will be just our guide. Once we finished adding our elements on the inside, we will be just taking out this yellow line. Do your best to trace the image that you want, but it's okay if you go over the lines because you could just make adjustments later on. And there going to come upto object and unlock everything. Now that's gonna unlock that 19 by 19 inch square as well. So we'll have to go back and lock that when we completed this, gonna click on my bare and backspace to get rid of it. Now I'm going to select that square again, come to object and lock that back into place and select my bear. I'm gonna change the color two black just so that you can see it better. And there's the bear. It just has toe have a distinct outline that you know it's a bear, and we can tell that this is a polar bear by the shape of her head and also this great big muscle that we see on bears, but very predominant on polar bears and grizzly bears. But we know that this isn't a grizzly bear because of the shape of the face. I want to look this bear into place again. So select everything, come to object and lock her into place. And now she's not gonna move anywhere and we can start embellishing. Are illustration 5. Drawing organic shapes: Hello and welcome back. I want to keep an image of the bear handy just for reference. And for some ideas, I will be changing the colors, tomb or update a trend for 2017. And I will also not be copying exactly where I've put to the lines and circles onto our new illustration. My signature and my art prints is that I don't color in the head of my images or animals. You can do that. That's fine. I won't be doing it for this lesson, but you must create your artwork the way that you see fit. I'm going to just basically ignore the head at this time, and I'm just going to use my pencil tool. I can keep the color black or change it if I like, which I think I will. I think I'll come up and make it a nice bright fuchsia when the zoom in a little closer and work from the front to the back getting my pencil tool again, I can trace this line again, using my fuchsia or just come on the inside of it. The caller I always like to make quite distinct with a band and now I can use any type of shape that I want. I can use geometric shapes or get quite organic, and I like to use a combination of those in my art prints. So my next image will be triangles. I'm still using my black line, and I'm keeping a space between my first image and my next image. I just like to go back and forth or even come into the center just to give it some balance . I'm making a very organic definition that this part is going to be about the same size as this, and I want a curvature. So I want to make sure that my organic elements start to curve. There's a bit of a curve. If you don't like what you've done, you can always just backspace get rid of it. Start again. So that's fine. For now, I like that I want to create another band. This time I think I'll do three bands like toe work in odd numbers, so three will be fine, and that's okay. You see how that's very close touching. That's fine. I don't mind that because it's very organic. Your drawing. Still, you're still using your illustration skills keeping a space between each element. Now, here, I'm going to touch that part of the bear so that I could make that top of the leg very distinct. And because my band here is quite thick, I want this one to be thinner. Gonna zoom out, Just take a look. That's good. Now I want to start to add some rounder elements Have got some bands and rectangles and triangles. Now I need something round. I like that teardrop that I used here. So I'm going to continue that on this new bear. It is a copy. That and just make a bit of a teardrop. I'm going to start here and move it up so that this leg will have its own definition. So I'm gonna come down here. Alternate where the point is. I'm not thinking of color yet. Yeah. Now gonna move this up. I'm gonna create another band. This one will start here. This way can start to give that second leg a little bit of definition. This band is going to followed that organic line there and again. I want to touch between where the legs meet so that when I work on that third leg, I give that definition. Now, Here, I'm going to make this really narrow gonna work on some organic squares so they'll be rounded to match the organic line that I just created. But then kind of square square rectangles. And here I'm gonna just there, miss going to the center by doing one on each end and then into the center. I'm visually working on a little bit of balance in my last one. I want to add some patterns, so I just need some very large organic drawings at this point. So I'm going to do a great, big, funky rectangle type of thing. Okay, Perfect example. I don't like how that went, so I'm just gonna back up, start that. Start that all over again. And this gives me that opportunity to touch between the legs there, creating a very distinct definition off the lakes. Okay, I'm just going to zoom out a little bit, okay. Is there anything here that I would like to put in over here? I could see that my feet are going to be very solid. I like how this looks, so I'm going to keep that here, but I think we have some room to play with some circles before we move into the lakes zooming in just a little bit more, very organically. Draw those circles. They do not have to be perfect. I'm gonna actually make different sizes to make a balance out. How I want the circles to look, I haven't decided if he's air gonna be patterns or colors or Grady in colors yet. And if I don't like anything something that I have done, I could just go back and redo it. All right, that's good. Now gonna start working on the feet from the bottom up because I did decide that I want solid color here. Just move this over. Zoom out. I want to balance out these circles by moving some circles into the front of the bear. I think what I'll do is ovals. So I'm going to just work on large round ovals because they're turning into teardrops. That's fine. Let's put one right here. Now on this side, I want to balance the triangles, so I'm going to make kind of an organic zebra stripe. I'm gonna work this all the way down the leg when a try and fit a total of five in here. Okay, Now, my last two images, I want to make sure that I have a balanced look. When we do here is just add another stripe. Really organically. And over here is Well, now I'm gonna take just a look at everything, and I'm not liking how the circles look, so I'm going to just select them and delete them. I still want to keep a round organic image going here, but I don't like the idea of all these teeny weeny circles and just back space them out there. Yeah, that looks a little bit better, but I want something rounded in there. I like how these big ovals are working here, so I'm going to continue that over here. I want to try and get five of them in my hat. Looks a little bit better than those Messi circles. Okay, so at this point, I like what I've got. I'm going to leave all the outlines the way that they are, and in the next lesson, we're going to focus on colors 6. Create new color swatches using 2017 color trends: hello and welcome back in this lesson on going to start creating new color swatches from the Pantone 2017 spring colors of the year. I have the colors here, and I have the RGB codes. That's the red, green and blue values of each of these colors. And now I want to create new swatches and place them in my swatch library. Then just move my swatches over to this area so I can keep everything in one spot while I'm working with the colors when you zoom in a little bit so that I can read the values, I'd like to use all or most of these colors. So create 10 swatch squares by coming over to the rectangle tool, clicking anywhere on my workspace. And I just want to create a one inch by one inch square. Gonna select that square and just make a bunch of copies. It's gonna move that over two inches, but none, and just do a copy and control de to copy Smores. It's 3456789 10. There we go. The stroke right now is still the fuchsia color. That's OK. We'll get rid of that so the 1st 1 I'm going to use his primrose yellow. So I'm just going to click on my first square, come up to the color instead of just looking around here and guessing what color I want. Take that stroke. Oh, now that we're working, I'm gonna come up to color and create a new swatch. I'm gonna call this primrose yellow cause that's the Pantone name. And here the R G B values are here, and we have these. We know that red is 246 green 209 and blue is 85. And when I click OK, it's changed the color of this watch and it's put it in my swatch library. So I'm just gonna come to the next one, come to color, create new Swatch pail dogwood, and at those values and that we have. And there it is. It's the same. And here we go and our hazelnut And there it is. And here's our blue. I'm just gonna click on a blue. I was like to see how close I can get island paradise when they're it. ISS as it appears here, here's greenery. This is the color of the year Okay, so we have our first lying and they're all in our Swatch library. I'm going to show you another way that you can add these colors. I'm just gonna click on that square that I want come over to my I dropped tool, and then click that flame color. The only thing is, what's happened now is I've not created a new swatch. I created a flame color square, and I can click on it and drag it in. But then, if I come over here, it's just a new pattern. Swatch number one. I want to give these names. So while it's selected, I'm gonna come to color, create that new swatch, call it flame, and there it ISS, but thou it's there twice. So I want to just take that out. I wanted to have a name. Here we go. Come on, The next one, that's kind of purple. E pink Yaro New Swatch. Okay. And there it appears there my next square Niagara, same color, and now do Kale and her last one lap is blue. And here we have all our switch colors. Just a de clutter my workspace. I'm just going to click on that and then click on all these colors and get rid of them. So now I've got all my colors in my Swatch library. In the next lesson, we're going to create a couple of faux repeating patterns to use in our art print. 7. Make faux patterns for your illustration: hello and welcome back to class. In this lesson, we're going to create some faux repeating patterns. You can create repeat surface pattern designs on Adobe Illustrator and bring those in to your swatches. Or you can just create a full looking repeating pattern and use that for your our prints. So here I have some polka dots. Here's a tartan. This is Ah, honey, comb some or polka dots. They're not perfect, and they don't have to be. This has to be very organic, so let's create three faux repeating patterns. I'm going to start by creating a two inch by two inch rectangle, and then I'm just going to copy and paste that and copy and paste it again and just move that over. Okay, we'll start with this one. I'm going to zoom in a little bit the background. The Phil of this pattern will be none, and I'm going to create a block stroke just for now so that I can see the box. Let's create polka dots. I'm going to select the the lips tool and make a small polka dot I'm using a two inch by two inch, so let's make a two inch by two inch square. So let's make 20.25 circles. I'm just going to select that and move it over so that it comes right onto my my corner. So the center of my perfect circle is right on my corner. Well, it's select it. I'm going to right click transform. I'm going to move it over two inches, so it's going to come over and make a copy. It's gonna come over to my other side. Whatever happens on one side must happen on the other. Whatever happens on the top must happen on the bottom. They're going to come back to that original circle and right click transform Move. I'm gonna move that over one inch and copies So it'll come into the center of the line now selecting all three circles by just holding down my shift key. Right? Click, transform, Move. This time I just want to move down. I don't want to move horizontally and I want to move down one inch and copy and I want to do that again. Some going to do controlled D Now I want to create circles here, there, there, there and there. So I'm going to select just the 1st 2 circles, right? Click, transform, move. I want them to move over horizontally, Khalfan inch and I want them to move down half an inch. Let's minus 0.5 and copy. There they are. I don't want to do that again, but while there select it on going to right, click again. Transform and move these down one inch. So I'm not moving horizontally. So that zero value on I want to move down, which is minus, and copy that vertically. There I go. So here is that rounded pattern that'll be using. I'm gonna select all my circles and I'm going to change their color. I'm going to make these the Niagara color. I want to take out the stroke, and I want to get rid of this box for this particular once. I'm going to just select it and backspace it. So now all I've got left is my pattern. I'm going to select the entire pattern, click and drag it into the swatches they're So now I've created a Niagara blue polka dots watch. I'm gonna select it all. And now change it. The color hazelnut. We'll select it. I'm going to click and drag it into swatches, it's still select it. Let's do lap is blue click and drag, and I could just change these colors all day and click and drag to create these new swatches. So that's my polka 0.1. Aiken. Just select all and delete it now because I don't need it. And I like a clean work space. Let's do our 2nd 1 Let's go with the blue. This time we're going to create a tartan pattern. I want my fill to be none, and I'll make my stroke block just for now. Now for this one. I want to create lines and different thicknesses of lines. So I'm going to just start with my pen tool, come over to the path of my two inch square click anywhere that I feel like I want my line . And they're Now I'm gonna click this and make this a four. Gonna make it nice and thick, going to do another four from the top to the bottom following my guidelines and I'll do two more. I'm just going to drop the center a little. There's four and I'll put this next one just off the center of the top I'm gonna change the size and just follow that top line and make this a to I'm just following the lines that I've already used, just eyeballing it where it needs to be. I'm gonna put a line on each side of the vertical lines. This is just gonna create a nice tartan. At this point, I'm going to get rid of my two inch box and start working on the color. So I'm gonna select everything, select my stroke so that my stroke is in front and then select the color it's selected. So I'm going to grab it and bring it into the swatch library. Change the color gain, click Hold on, drag. And there we go. So I can get rid of this one and work on our last folks watch. We have polka dots. We have lines. Now let's do triangles. I'm just going to select my square, make my fill, have none and a black stroke so I could see what I'm doing. Come over to my shapes and I'm going to select my polygon click anywhere, and I'm gonna make it three sides and half a niche. I could put this anywhere I want I'm going to try and line it up reasonably with my square . I'm just copy paste. I don't need it perfectly lined up. Copy paste. Maybe overlap some a little bit. I don't want them. Perfect. There we go. Just an interesting shape. Interesting pattern. Going to click on that outside square and delete it and change the color of my stroke to pale dogwood. And I'll make the lines of five. So they're nice end thick again. I could change all these colors, but I think I'm just gonna leave that and drag it into my swatches. So have a nice library of swatches going. I'm going to delete that back up a little bit and get ready to fill in my organic images with my colors. Eh? My swatches. 8. Adding color + faux patterns: hello and welcome back. In our example image. I used three types of color techniques for the art print. I used solid color. Here we have examples of the solid colors. I use patterns, the full patterns, and I also use Grady in color. So here we have a solid image, but we have pink on one side, blue in a little bit of green. Here we have blue and some green, and over here we have pink an orange, which is a really good color combination for 2017 friends. I only use the Grady in three times, and it really worked in this image. I used patterns 1234 times, and that works fine, so I'm going to kind of keep that ratio going. Use about three or four patterns and about three or four ingredient colors, and the rest will be solids. So let's begin to color our bear, zoom in and select my very first image. I want to start this one with a bang, so I'm going to select it and just see what my patterns look like. Inside. I want my stroke to be off, and I want my fill there. We go, So I don't love that. That's because it's a both space. That looks really nice. That's quite nice. There's the dots. Or I could just go plane. I'm going to select the greenery color and I want to make this Grady int. So here, if I select ingredient, it comes to the black and the white and the whites on the bottom, in the blacks on the top. And at this point, I can change the values while I've got this selected. So I'm gonna come up to greenery and bring it down here. I'm gonna pull the black right out and see how I like that going to add another color, the blue. So going to keep the blue and the green and make sure it's got no stroke. There we go. So I'm gonna work with that for now. I'm going to select the big, easier organic shapes. I'm just play with things here Gonna leave that blue will take this stroke out. You can leave stroking if you like and come to the next one Go flame, Take the stroke out And the next one I will make dogwood and take this stroke out. I will do some images world. I'll leave the stroke in. So like where this is going right now, it's kind of got a bit of a Hudson's Bay look to it. That's interesting. I'm gonna leave this another big one here. I think I'd like greedy int here. So selecting that blue and green again this time I think I want it more yellows, fuchsias, pinks. So I'm going to come up to flame and bring flame all the way down and then the yarrow. That looks really good. I'll leave that and take a look. Now I'm going to move back up to the triangles and select them all the colors beside our greens and blues. So I'm going to go with something opposite. So I've got ingredient and a solid. Let's see what happens when we use polka dots. It doesn't fill it. Owed as much as I'd like. There's the hazelnut but blue Niagara. This is an interesting color. I'm gonna leave the greenery and take the stroke out and now work on the big teardrops. So I'm selecting all the teardrops and just play with the dots. I'm going to keep the Niagara color here. I think this looks really balanced and solid. Now, the stroke is that bright color. So I'm going to play with this a little bit and see what happens when I do the stroke. Color. Different. No, I don't like that. So I'm gonna take that stroke all the way out. I'm liking the flow. And now gonna select all these organic squares and rectangles. We'll see what dogwood looks like here. It's very good. Take the stroke out. And here I noticed the stroke is in. I want the stroke to be out. No stroke. You could still follow that line. Looks really good. I like how we've got green here green here. So I will be putting greens here. So I'm gonna select all these animal prints stripes, and I'm going to make this Grady int take a greenery and kale, and then I'm gonna put a lighter color in the center. Let's see how the dogwood looks in the center when change the angle. 2 45 degrees. And that looks all right. I like the balance. And take this stroke out. Mel. Color stroke. I think we need some blue down here, so I'm going to click my foot and just make that I'm gonna balance that with a nice dark blue The next foot Let's try flame and this foot go. And the last one going to keep the blues and the pinks. There we go. And just take out all our stroke. Let's see what the circles look like here. You think I'm gonna leave this? I like the triangles. Take the stroke out. Looks pretty good. And here will be Let's go with the Grady int spear and bring down greenery. Looks very nice. Make sure that this needs to be a solid. I'm gonna change that toe. A solid something from the blue family here. And now let's work on the circles. I'm going to select them all. That looks great. It's nice and balanced. Take out the stroke and we're gonna finish off with these last circles. Try Dogwood. I like that. I like that. There's the three bands. Okay. I like how this is looking. I'm going to see if I could switch these around, so I'm gonna select that it was playing here just to see and then make this the deeper color I like this better. I think I need more of a pattern up here. Let's see. I think that's a better balance. I wanted to make sure that each color shows up two or three times. So I might change this to the Lapidus. Yes. Just look for the balance. Okay. I think that looks good. I'm going to zoom out a little bit. Now. I'm going to select that original drawing that we did and backspace it to get it over there . So I need to unlock our original drawing and and then just select it anywhere. So just the body part and back space. And now you can see how this image looks. If you want to make any changes, go right ahead. But I think this looks pretty good. I'm gonna back out a little bit, and I like how that looks. 9. Bear's face: Hello and welcome back to class. And this lesson. We're going to finish up the bear by drawing in the features of the face. So I would just center this again on to our 20 by 20 and zoom in with my pencil tool and my stroke is black, and I'm probably gonna make that a little bit thicker. I'm just gonna draw over my bare Doesn't have to be perfect. We could fix it up later. And, Zemo, get rid of that 19 inch square. Get rid of the bear drawing. We could select the bear's head and make it thicker. You could make it any color you like. Is that too thick? No, that looks all right. Actually, it is too thick. Change the color.
