What we are going to be creating in this project: in this project, we're going to create toe this flat looking hipster kind of guy. And after we are, we are done with the creating this guy. We're actually going to do some some minor changes that is going to ultimately change his appearance quite significantly. So we're not going to create just this one guy. We're actually going to transform his his appearance into into this guy. So where we are going to add the sunglasses and we are going to change or transform his vast into a suit. And of course, we're going to change the color of his tie. And lastly, we are going to create this version off our hips. Her hips are looking a kind of fellow on the, but the real change right here is just to transform his suit or his vast into a sweater just like that. So let me just quickly break break thes thes designs for year on down real quick. As you can see, there's some first quite a lot going on. And to tell you the truth, you to create this guy. We will use some some advanced illustrator techniques, but when I say advanced illustrator techniques, it doesn't mean that they are going to be difficult. The whole point off of syriza off off advanced of flat design videos is to show you how you can create how you can use advanced for advanced features of illustrator. But Teoh actually approached them in its simple, easy to understand way. So your so your design process is really smooth, smooth and easy. So I batch that I bet that you that you think there's a lot off well, that to create this kind of a design, you need to use a lot of panto. And I'm going to tell you that we are not going to use panto. I think not not even know one a video. So maybe all your panel lovers will be a bit disappointed. But you won't be when I create a whole different a whole separate course just on the mental , because I was asked to do that. So I'm going to create that as well. But I'm gonna tell you that, too, especially to create this here. We are not going to use the Penta. We are going to use a tool that I bet that you've never or very rarely used in an illustrator, and that's a really, really powerful tool, if you know how to how to approach it, how to use it the right way. Of course, we got some. We got his his eyebrows here that we're not going to create with the pencil as well. We are got way. Got years right here. We got the eyes that these are just simple ellipses. And then we got this guy's beard. So there's gonna be some transformations going on here. There's gonna be some a some clipping going on. And if I zoom in really close, you can see that we created his nose just with the with really 33 simple, simple ellipses that are kind of like cutting into this this beard shape right here. Now, after we are done with that, we're going to move on to his to his body. So we're going to create his neck. Well, the rest of his office tour So some, well, his vast and the color and he's type. And after that, we're going to move on to this guy. And really, the change is the only changes changes that were going Teoh to make our well, we're going to add his well, the these sunglasses, and we're going to use simple passage. The mass. We're going to learn how to use opacity masks inside. Illustrator. They were going to transform his vast into this into this suit. And of course, we're going to change the color of his time. And with the last guy, all the real will really do is we will change his suit into this. This casual hips are kind of looking sweater, So I only know we got some We got some stuff to do, actually, who got quite a lot of cover. But as I said, it's all going to be fun, and it's all going to be simple. So if you're interested in in how to create this kind of flat looking guy just to stay tuned and see you in the next video 3. Class Project: for the class project. You'd be asked to create at least one of these hipster kind of hipster kind of looking fellas. And it will be great if you decided Teoh also create this guy. Sunglasses play around with shade with a shape player of the opacity masks, and you can also play around with the color. So maybe if you if you want to, like maybe make these guys hair darker than just go ahead. And if you want to make his time the different color or his vest different, different color just go ahead. But try to stay within Onda flat design theme and you can find flat, flat design colors. Well, actually, I used to the two sites when I am working with flat designs and let me just show you these sites where I where I take my flat collars from. So the first sight is this flat color flecked you eye color picker that come in here. You can find all these stars. They will actually show you all the all the different cholera and cholera sets, and you can choose from red, pink, purple and so on. So let's say that you want to use some orange colors. Simply click on the orange tamp and you will find all your orange, all your orange swatches right here. And of course, in illustrator, all we would need to do is to simply click and drag around this hex code simply right. Click on it and copied and then paste it into your into your color picker inside. Illustrator. But these colors sometimes can be quite limited. I mean, you won't find like too many brown colors in here. You will find more colors here in the flat colors dot net site, and you can find different tabs here. Right here is well, and if you could just go for the colors, you will have all these colors and you can see that we have brown colors Here is well, and all you wouldn't really need to do is to simply click on at any collar, and this high school is copied into your clipboard. So again, I highly advise you to work along with me. Try toe, try to follow the steps that I am, that I am taken, and then you can play around with the colors, maybe at some tens or shades to the colors that that I am using 4. Set up the workspace: if you want to follow along with me, it would be great if you decided Teoh have the same tools open as I do in my workspace. And to tell you the truth, there's not that many new tools that we are going to be using that you won't find in the essentials the workspace. But there's actually a few 12 maybe three tours that we are going to be to be using and that I'd like you to have open. So let's go to the window tab and let's click on the Align Tab right here and in this group I do not going to be using in that transform panel. So I'm simply going to close it. We can have. We will mostly have all the all the transform options in our control panel, so we don't actually need this panel right here. I am, however, going to be using the Pathfinder tool. So along with the ally, until I'm simply going to Doctors group in my panels right here and in the align panel. I I think I want to show the options just so I have all the options as I go now, there's actually one more tool that you could use, and that's optional. But it can come quite handy when you're working with the like, multiple elements in your design, maybe multiple art boards. And that tool is called the Navigator. And if we find it in our window panel, where window tab. Let me just let me move to this to this. To this some document you can see that we have that we have our art boards here displayed in our in our window, and we have all our all our Let me just make me make it bigger so you can see everything better. And we have all our elements of our design being displayed in our in our aren't put that right now we can see on Lee the elements that are being constrained to the art of boards. Who would go when we go to the options panel? And I'm simply going to de select this view Art board conference only. I get all my all my elements inside my documents with the with the Navigator. Tulleken, simply quickly find piece of the piece off the design that I am actually interested in, and I can simply and I can simply find it in the in the Navigator panel like that. So this is an option if you want. If you want to go along, if you want 20 used this Navigator panel, just go ahead. I'll leave it up to you. But I would like it to have the Pathfinder and the aligned panels the tools capped handy in your in your workspace. So when you are ready to save your workspace simply, let's go. Go ahead and do that in the workspace switcher. Add, Let's call it maybe flat designed just like that and now we are actually ready to start designing, so let's do that. 5. Let's create the head and the eyes: in this video, we're going to start our design process by creating this first things first, Will hipster hips or flat design kind of guy. So, of course, as usual, Let me just create a new art board sound. Simply going to go to the yard board. Still going to click on this new order board button. And I am going to simply click somewhere here. I'm gonna create a new layer, and I'm gonna name it, Hipster guy. Why not? Hipster guy? Just like so. And before we move on to creating Theis hipster guy, let me just show you that I have three different color Swatch Group's that correspond to each of these designs. So I'm going to be referring to these colors quite a lot. I'm gonna be using these colors quite a lot. Okay, so let me move on to the first of the two. The first design move onto this art board, I think I'm going to lock all the other layers. So I'm gonna make sure that I'm just working on this hipster guy layer. And when we take a look at this first design, I think that we are going to start with his will with the main shape of the hand. And then let's create thick eyebrows and in the eyes so creating creating the head is like extremely simple. There's nothing advanced here. I'm simply gonna grab the ellipse tal, and I'm gonna create on the lips that is going to look something like something like that is gonna be like an egg shape. And I think I'm gonna start adding colors as we go. So I don't want any for any stroke. But I do want some Phil, and I'm gonna use this light like a skin tone just like that. So now let's move on to create in this guy's eyes. And since we got toe the ellipse still active, that's actually quite handy because we consent. We create an ellipse off something like that. And of course, we need to change its colors. I'm gonna go with this black rhombus. That's the brown color. Maybe this black collar. And of course, we want to create this. This kind of like a reflection in his eye so we could create a new new ah lips and simply make it to make it wide and then maybe, like, reposition it but I'm just gonna go to the appearance panel. In this case, I'm simply going Teoh cloned this Phil just like that. And I'm gonna change him the top fields colored to this white collar just like so. Of course, since both these guys are the same size we actually can't see now our our bottom, our bottom filled. So I'm gonna go to this FX symbol. I'm gonna head onto the starting transform and to that transformed function I'm gonna change. I'm gonna actually decrease. And the science of this of this feel quite significantly. Let's let's check 25% and turn on the preview mode. Yeah, this should be fine. Of course. I want to move it horizontally and vertically as well. So let me just move it to the left by let's see five pixels and I'm gonna move it up, not by 10. About maybe five pixels as well, just like that. And if we go to the preview mode so I'm gonna initialize the room the outline mode by pressing the control. Why on my keyboard and command? Why on a Mac? If you're on a Mac, you can see that we have only one ellipse, but we are seen like to ellipses because we're applying a live effect to our 1st 1st Fine. So I'm simply going to grab it, move it to the right, do somewhere here and there we go. We got we got the ice created off course. If you want you can You can change the size of the eyes off. Let me just maybe make it smaller to something like 95 or maybe even 19 just like so. And I'm gonna do the same for the same thing with this I as well. So I'm simply present the asking on the keyboard and then enter to enter the scale tool. And I'm simply simply decreasing the size unit formally, just like that. And there we go. We got he's, uh this kind of there's this flat looking hips are fella eyes created. So we simply used an ellipse still to creator this oval shape well, to create his his had shape. Then we used the Ellipse still to create his eyes, and we used the appearance panel Teoh add secondary filled to at this reflection to his eye . And of course, we added this transformation option to change its size and and move it just a little bit. So in the next video, we're going to create the eyebrows and on again I am not going to use. I am not going to use the mental. I am actually going to use the Ark two. So that's something that you're interested in. Keep watching. 6. Let's create the eyebrows: we don't. We are going to create the eyebrows of our hipster guy. But before we actually do that, let me start aligning everything properly. So first I'm going to group my group, this guy's eyes constantly going to select them. And I'm simply gonna press the control g on the keyboard. And then I'm going toe ad. Well, actually, I'm gonna go into Marquis around all his hat and his eyes to simply select both thes elements. I'm going to go to the Align panel, make sure that I am aligning everything to selection, that I'm simply going to press this this button right here that actually says a horizontal alone center just like that, just to be sure that I have everything aligned properly. So don't let's actually move on to his eyebrows. And as I said in the previous video, I want to use the Ark tool for this. For this creation, though, the ark toe sits underneath the line segment told You can see just just here in our in our tools panel and the way it works is if I just click and drag, you can see that I am creating an arc just like so. And if I want to, I can simply and manipulate the slope of the art by present the up arrow key or the down arrow key, just like so. So this is this is how we can manipulate the slope. And if we want to quickly change, change the slope if one toe rapidly reflect the arc, all we really need to do is to press the Afghan. So what? I'm pressing the after you can see that I am reflecting that the ark just like that. So right now, I simply want to want to Maybe I will reflect it, actually, and I'm a creating a line that is going to look something like that. I'm gonna make sure that it has, like a brown strokes. I'm gonna use this color just like that. And what I need to do right now is they need to simply cologne this guy to bottom some simply going to select it with selection told hold down the shift and the old keys together on a Mac it hold down the bulky the option key, and I'm gonna make get something like that and really all we need to do right now is to simply select all the book. Both these guys and what we could do is we could go to the object menu path and then join or simply used to control J Command on our keyboard. And as soon as I do that, you can see that Actually, Illustrator is joining the nearest the nearest anchor points for me. So if I select it again and press the control J on my keyboard or command J. R on your keyboard if you're on a Mac, I was simply going to join these guys these anchor points as well. So if I now simply changed this short into the fill, you consider that we got this nicely looking. I broke, I broke created. But of course it's it's way too big. So all you really need to do is to simply grab it with selection tool or, if you want to use the scale tool Well, you can do that. But I'm just going to simply use the selection, pull for this, and I'm gonna hold down the shift key to constrain the proportions, and I'm simply going to click and bring it down something like that, and move his eyebrow to summer. Here, let me just zoom in real quick, just like that. And I am going to make it even smaller to something like And if you want, you can simply manipulate his the rotation of his eyebrows to something like that to make his face be a bit maybe more lively or something like that. Just bring the size, maybe, but to the bottom. And all we really need to do is to simply grab this eyebrow. I'm going to initialize the the road. The reflected by pressing the okay on the keyboard. And I'm going to find the top anchor point is that this is this guy right here because I want to reflect my eyebrow proportionately in relation to the center off this guy's face. So if I just find this ankle point, which actually sits in the center in the center, off his will top center off his face, let's let's call it like that. And if I simply old click on this ankle point, you can see that I count on that. I got this reflect toe reflected dial books popping up, and I do on the reflection to be vertical, but I simply want to hit copy instead of Okay, So I'm simply gonna hit copy just like that and you can see that we created We created this guy's eyebrows just like that. So in the process of creating these eyebrows, we used the ark toe. Remember, we learned how to how to create an arc out to manipulate the slope of it, how to reflect it using the F G. And then we actually re cloned the first park joint it, and then we simply reflected to the to the right and compete at the same time. So in the next video, we are actually going to create this guy's ears. And there are actually 22 ways of creating these guys years. If you want, you can use a simple ellipse still and simply put, put his ears that will make his years to to to appear like a simple ellipse in, then maybe play around with the rotation. All we can use another tool which is, said the spiral Tuell to make his years look a bit more like, Well, the really, really years, not just some simple ellipses, but actually, I think I'm going to show you two different. Two different ways of creating these guys here is just so your skills. The portfolio is a but, well, Broder, and you can actually use both these techniques to create your own designs your own flat, flat people designs. 7. Let's add the ears: in this video, you're gonna learn how to create to the years, and actually we're gonna look, we're going to take a look at two different ways of creating this flat looking design flat looking. Here's the 1st 1 will use a simple ellipse, and the 2nd 1 will the use will use the spiral Tuell. Okay, so let's start with the Ellipse. I'm gonna grab it from my tools panel. And I was simply going to But maybe first, let me just make move this this hat to the right just so I have more room to work with and you can see everything just a bit better. Okay, so the Ellipse Tool, I am simply going to create an ellipse that is going to look something like that. And again, I'm gonna go to the appearance panel and I'm simply going to duplicate its Phil. I'm going to grab it. I'm going to grab it and move it onto this duplicated selected item. I can I'm going to change the filter to this darker skin tone just like that. And again with this effects symbol, I'm going to click it, go to distort and transform and transform. I'm going to let me just turn on the preview mode. I'm going to make it significantly smaller. How about 50%? Maybe even 40%. Okay, this should be finalized. Let let's not split hairs here. Now that I got. Now that I got this guy this guy created, let me maybe move this guy to the left. Now that I got it created off course, I want to make it just a bit smaller to something like that. And I'm gonna move it here somewhere here, and I'm going to put it behind. These guys had so we could simply go to the object, arrange sense to back. Or better yet, use the shift plus control plus left bracket. Short cup just like that. And there we go. We got this year created. And of course, I think we could simply may be rotated a bit to something like that till it looks Looks like this. Of course, all we really need to do right now is to simply reflect it to the right and copied at the same time, and we already know how to do it. So it's initialized that the reflect tool by pressing the O key on the keyboard. Let me just close this panel again. I'm going to find this top anchor point and I'm gonna alter click on it on a Mac. You just click your option, Click on this ankle point. And I want this reflection to Vertical. And I want to hit copy instead of okay, Just like so. Okay, so this is one way off creating off creating years. So what about the other way The second way? Well, let's move on to the spiral tool. And if I simply click and drag and let me just most probably your spy lowers your spiral is going to look something like we just created again is going to look something like something like this, right? This is this is the This is the default appearance of a of a typical spiral. Something like that. How, In order to create a the ear shape, all we really need to dio is to again it with spiral Tuell. I'm simply going to click on click and drag to start drawing it. And if I simply press the down arrow key, I'm going to decrease the number of segments in my in my spiral And of course, this shape doesn't really look only does kind of look like a year, but we can make it look even more like a year. And that's simply by oppressing the Control E and actually holding down the control key on a Mac you'd hold on the command key. And if I do that, you can see that I'm actually controlling the DK off my my spiral. So I'm simply going to manipulate until it looks maybe something like that. Okay, this should be fine. And really, all we need to do is to simply join these two, these two anchor points. And that's as easy as simply pressing the control J on the keyboard or command J on a Mac. Now I don't need to. I don't need to worry that this life is not like a straight vertical line. That's really not an issue here. All I want to do is they want to simply exchange the filled with stroke in this case. So I'm simply going to press the shift acts on my keyboard, and I'm going to change the color of this filled to this lighter skin tone and again, as with our a Z with our lips. I'm simply going to go to the appearance panel and I'm going to duplicate the Phil. I'm gonna give it than this darker skin tone and the effects symbol. I'm gonna go to the distort and transform again to transform and make it to smaller. Let's check 50% maybe even a bit up. Let's see 60%. This should be fine. And all we need to do is to make its smaller, I think even a smaller than that. Something like that. Let me just get rid off. Get rid of these. These ellipses going to simply simply delete them. I'm gonna move. I'm gonna move this guy's hat to the left and again, I'm gonna have to put this year all the way to the back. So I'm going to use the control shift left bracket shortcut and maybe move it a bit to the right, just like so and again weaken. Simply manipulate the rotation. Maybe somewhere to set something like that. Maybe let's move this guy something like So again, all we really need to do is to simply reflected, do the right. So with the reflective active by my maid, actively pressing the okey. I'm simply going toe old click on this anchor point reflected vertically and just hit copy , Just like so Now if you think that maybe this, uh, this inner interval is a bit too big, like I think I do. In this case, all we really need to do since it's alive, live effect, go to the appearance panel, click on this transform option and maybe actually go with 50% value. Just like so. So I'm gonna do that again with this. With this right year, I'm going to click, transform and change this this value to 50% just like that. And there we go. We got we got to the eyes, we got well, first had we got then recreated at the eyes, eyebrows and the ears. So all these shapes were fairly a fairly simple and the more advanced part is gonna get is gonna come now. So in the next video, we are going to cruise, start creating this guy's hair. And as I said, we are not going to use the pen till we are going to use the pencil toe instead. So that's something that you're interested in. Keep watching 8. Let's learn the Pencil Tool: in this video, we are going to create the hair for our for our hips or kind of guy. And we're not going to use the Penton. As I mentioned before, we are going to use the pencil toe and the pencil tool sits right under our main issue shape creation tools. And it's this guy right here has a default short cut off the ladder, actually, So if I simply make it active, I'm going to click on it. And I'm gonna make sure that my stroke is active, not the field. And I am simply going to start drawing to summary somewhere here. So I'm simply going to click and drag and start drawing his hair until it looks something like this. I'm really going to slow with it. Um, maybe to somewhere here and then I'm gonna go down here to something like that. Now I can see that it actually looks kind of horrible. I mean, I think we could actually do a bit better job with the pencil if we wanted to leave it like that. If I just simply exchanged a stroke with the film. Now it's maybe not that bad, but I don't think it looks Looks, um, as nice as it can look. So let me just zoom back out and let me just undo all these changes. Well, if you see your your well, the result of your pencil tool in creation just as we as we did be just a second ago. Well, that's most probably because you have what doom? Well, I'm not. Not not the incorrect setting spot, not the settings that we are looking for in this case set. So I'm simply going toe double click on this pencil told to get these pencil two options and really the 70 you want to play around with is the smoothness setting right here. So if I simply just crank it up to around 50% and then I hit, OK, and then I move on to my creating the hair, some city going to click and drag and going to start creating this hair set till it looks some something like that. So I'm going to move up right now and now create this curl just like that, and then I'm gonna go to the left and then I'm gonna create something like, of course, with these FREEHAND shape. There is actually no right or wrong. Now you can see that the pencil tool is actually trim, making it to look away batter. It's actually making it a bit smoother. And the Kurds are are way nicer. So let me just revert back to to the original to see what it actually has to look like. Okay, so I'm gonna just lead it and just is a repetition. Let's create it one more time. Of course. As I said, there is no right or wrong with this kind of. With this kind off shapes, you can have really fun with it. You can You can created them the way you want. Actually, because well, it's It's the hair, right? It's not really that regular usually. Okay, so I'm gonna leave it like that. As you can see, we with the Chantel you'd have to click like I don't know, 20 times to get all the Kurds right. We would actually spend a lot of time trying t o make this kind of a shape looker. The way it looks right now. So remember all you really need to dio if if you want to go with the Pentagon. The highly advise you do simply double click on the pencil, it'll and check if the smoothness values actually said to around 50%. If it was cranked up a bit higher, you get different results. But from my experience, usually usually the 15 50% value gives you a good balance between. Like, now there's a free hand freehand optional free hand of feeling that your design and the nice s static look. Okay, so I'm gonna just press OK, And now if I simply exchange the feelin stroke, you can see that actually, this this hairdo looks looks kind of nice, But of course, we still need Teoh. We still need toe like the other part of this guy's hair. And it would be good if if this this part of the sideburn actually looked a pretty symmetrical because we don't want this guy to look that hips or to have that asymmetrical asymmetrical hairdo. But I think that this is something that we can do that we can do in the next video, cause I really want you to just grasp what this pencil tool is really about, how you can simply create some pieces like Well, in this case, like some pieces of hair. And actually you can see that you can't really? Well, this is quite forgiven. You can you can really create this weird looking shapes. And illustrator will do all the heavy lifting for you and and make them look. Look, look. Well nicer. Okay, so in the next year, we are going to continue creating the hair do of our hips or guys, so stay tuned. 9. Let's create the rest of the hairdo: in this. We don't We're going to create the right part off this guy's hair. But I think that we are not going to use the panel cause it would be horribly, horribly difficult. T get it. Look the same asked this part of his heart to the left. Of course we could do that. We could actually, I would advise you to just to understand how the pencil tool works. But for the sake of this tutorial, I'm simply going to do that bit differently. First of all, let me just zoom in on this part of his hair. And actually, when when we go to into the outline mode, you can see that I've just been really close. You can see that these anchor points are actually not not are not joined. So we can simply do that by grabbing on one of these anchor points. And I'm gonna move until it snaps with this anchor point. But still, we need to simply click on this from this path and simply go with the control or command J on a Mac due to to join thes thes anchor points. And as you can see, Illustrator has since both these points were actually smooth points. No, made, like a wavy line out of this out of this straight line that we had before. So if you want to have the straight line, all we would really need to do is to simply select with the direct selection talk that we can initialize by pressing a key on the keyboard on this anchor point. And if I go to the Convert to Anchor Point Tour here in the control panel to consider actually made this whole an anchor point a straight and this line is straight again. So let me not just press control while my keyboard to see what it looks like in the preview mode and I can see that it looks It looks it looks just okay, of course. Uh, let me just let me just leave this guy right here. Of course, the also the benefit of this technique is that all these points are actually small points and you can see direction handle being displayed. So if you don't like any part of this hair set, you can actually manipulate the anchor points, manipulate the direction handles and simply simply change the look of this guy's hair do with some simple clicking and some simple dragon just like that. Okay, so what I want to do right now is they want to reflect part of this guy's hard to the right , and then maybe do some joining maybe some some manipulation to make it look realistic, but at the same time, quite symmetrical with this with this left part. So really only need to do is to simply shift click on, um, on this anchor point And maybe this anchor points of both these bottom anchor points. I'm gonna shift click on this anchor point as well. And I think that there is some anchor point here to the laughs. I'm going to click on this one and maybe on this one as well. So now if I simply go ahead and hit control C or commands if you're on a Mac to copy these ankle ports and then go control f to paste them back in front, I'm gonna exchange the filled with stroke. And of course, you can see it causes brown against brown. So if I change it to, maybe this green color and then maker will increase the value of the stroke it Consider we actually copied on Lee. A part of this guy's hard to. But of course, we also copied this This anchor point that is, actually, well, we actually wouldn't clicked on this anchor point. We copy the whole path segment, and we won't need this guy, so I'm simply going to click on this anchor point and simply hit Delete. Now, what we need to do is we need to simply click on this path and let's make sure that we select all the passwords best selected with the selection tool that we can access from this from tools panel about or by pressing the V key on the keyboard. And again, I am simply going to initialize that the reference that reflected by pressing the okey. And this time I want to find this bottom anchor point right here. I don't simply go toa alta click on it, and I'm gonna hit copy just like that. Now, I won't need this part anymore, so I'm simply going to select it and delete it, and I'm gonna will be working with this part with this part on the right. Of course I'm going to I'm going to Well, maybe, you know, I think I'm going to select this anchor point and deleted as well. So not what I want to do is they want to join these guys. So I'm gonna go control Jr Command J if you're on a Mac and I'm gonna exchange the filled with stroke by pressing the shift X on the keyboard. And now what I want to do is I want to simply make this guy make the fill of this of this part of the hair the same as the rest of the house so we could simply sample sample this this color. I'm gonna press the eye on my eye dropper and click on it just like so if you don't like the way this part that this right part looks, all we really need would need to do is to simply manipulated with the direct selection tool , because we can simply click on an anchor point and maybe maybe move it to the laughed just like that. Or maybe even and maybe maybe to the right, maybe manipulate this direction handle, just like so it's really it's really up to your imagination and up to your creativity. What you do with this with this part off the hair? What I want it is I wanted to especially decide burn part to be symmetrical with. Well, I would want these. Both of these guys, both these sideburns symmetrical. This actually, actually this part off his head. This the stop right part is really not that important in in terms of symmetry. So I'm simply going toe leave. Leave it like that. So there we go. We created this guy's Harris at her do. And the nice thing to do would be to simply create He is his beard. And we are going to create this goatee like like this guy has right here. So if that's something that you're interested in, just keep watching. 10. Let's create the mouth first: in this video, we are going to create the mouth of our flat design flatters on guy. And then we are going to actually use the mouth to create the beard. And we're going to create the mouth using some simple transformations and some simple shape creation tools. But is that gonna be like that that easy? But will the technique to do it will be easy, but the effect will be quite spectacular. So let's let me just maybe zoom in just a bit like that. So the tool that I want to go with that I want to go for is the Ellipse tool, and I'm simply going to maybe find the center spot, and I am going toa alta, click on it and simply create in the lips that is going to look something like that. Of course, this is not this not the math that I'm looking for, but I do want to I would do want to change change the color of this off this mouth to simple white, so we can either with the eyedropper tool weaken initially pressing the icon the keyboard simply select or sample in the background. Or we can go to do this, watches panel and choose white color just like that. So what I want to do right now is I want to grab the direct selection tool. And of course, we can do that by pressing the a cure. Just go into the tools panel, and what I wanted to right now is I want to shift click on this right anchor point left, anchor point and the bottom anchor point. And really, all we need to do is to simply press the up arrow key. And you can consider we are actually creating creating this guy's mouth. And if you want to go with the mouth that looks like this one, well, then you can. That's really that's really up to get. I think that this mouth actually is already looking really nice. But I think I'm going to maybe Nash this bottom anchor point a bit to the bottom, so he smiled, is a bit bigger, and maybe I will make this month his mouth just a bit just a bit bigger, just like that. If we just take a look at the original, we can see that we get actually to two parts. We got his teeth and we got his his well inside of his mouth being been shown right here. So in order to do that, all we really need to do is to simply divide this thesis mouth, shape this mouth element into two parts. And in order to do that, all we really need to do is to simply copied and pasted in front, some using the ever so handy combination of control, see, and then control F or dormancy command f if you are on a Mac. And right now I got two pieces to well identical to identical mouths. Let's comfort like that, OK, but just so you can see everything better, I am going to exchange the filled with stroke by pressing on the shift access command on on my keyboard. And I'm going to change its color to maybe this this dark, dark blue and in order to create two parts we need. So we need to manipulate this this newly created shape. So I'm simply going Teoh, select it with the selection tool and I'm going toe all tickle the whole of the altar or option for an iMac key and then shift to constrain the proportions, and I think I'm going to maybe let's not hold on this. Let's just maybe move it to something like that. And then I'm going to bring it just a bit up until it looks something like so. And of course, all we really need to do is to simply select both these guys, Then go to the Pathfinder tool and I'm going to hit divide, just like so. So the result of each Pathfinder transformation is a group as we can see the control panel . So if I want to a group it, I can go to the object menu and then go on group. Or better yet, use the shift plus control plus G shortcut or a shift plus command. Bless G a shortcut if you're on a Mac. So if I just ungroomed pit, all I have now is like this. Well, this of this funky shape right here. But what's most important? I got the teeth and I got the mouth and you will see the mouth as soon as I simply add the right color. Fill fill color to my my well to the mouth. So I'm simply going to click on this red color. And there we go. We got the mouth created. So this is how easily you can create the mouth by so simple transformation by just using the Ellipse still and then manipulating theano reports. And they really encourage you to simply a play around with the with the ankle points whenever you are. Whenever you think that that you need an irregular shape like this one in this case. So most probably would think that you need a panel to create that. But as you as you could see, we we created this whole shape with a simple ellipse and maybe like 45 clicks in total. So in the next video, we're going to create this guy's goatee and we're going to use We are going to use his his mouth for that. I know that this might sound, but its strength, but we are going to use his mouth to create his beard. So that's something that you're interested in. Keep watching 11. Let's create the beard: in this, we don't. We're going to create this guy's beard. So in order to do that, all we really need to do is to use the assets that we already have. So in my case, I'm simply going to grab this top. Well, I'm goingto I'm gonna grab his teeth and I'm simply again going to use the control C plus command half combination on my keyboard. So I'm going Teoh pace the copy and paste that will his teeth in front on a Mac could go with command, seek amount F. And I'm simply going to initialize the scale tool by pressing the S key on the keyboard and then enter. And I want to scale it up uniform elite to maybe something like 100 and 30%. I think that should do it. All I really need to do is to move a just a bit up and I don't need this bottom anchor points. I'm going to delete it to use in the first. I'm going to select it with the direct selection tool, and then I'm going to click on it and delete it just like that. Let me just really exchange the filled with stroke. My person, the shift key on the ship acts on the keyboard. And now I got this shape, this funky looking shape this is actually top part off this guy's teeth. And what I want to do right now is I want to simply clone it down. So I'm simply grabbing it with the with the selection. Told that's your safest bet. And then, um impressing Well, I'm holding down the shift and the old keys together to simply Kelowna down to somewhere here. I don't that you can see it. So maybe let me just sample this red color just like that, and I'm going to reflect it. So I'm gonna go to the reflect tool by pressing the alco key on the keyboard. And I am simply going to reflect horizontally and hate Copy, Just like so. And I shouldn't hit me. I should click. OK? Yeah, too many too many reflections and to money carpets. I'm just gonna get rid of this thing original at this original path just like that. And really all we need to do is do we need to simply select both these guys and I bet you know that what's going to happen. I'm simply going to join these guys by pressing the control J on my keyboard twice. Just like so. And all we really need to do is to simply give it some nice fill color, get rid of the stroke and simply move it, move it down. And I'm gonna do that by pressing the control left bracket or command for love. The bracket on your keyboard if you're on a Mac. So there we go. We got this guy's beard created, and if you want to go with a beard like that, let me just see what this guy looks like. Hey, looks he looks okay, I guess I guess we could go with this with this kind of a look. But I want to want to constrain his his goatee, do his to his hands. So this week, or to his chin chin Rather So really only need to do is to simply created clipping mask. So I'm simply going to select this Well, he's had a shape I'm gonna control, see somebody copied into my clipboard. And then I'm going to click on this beard and your chick, and I'm gonna hit control half to pace it in front off this beard. Now what we need to do is going to simply shift click on his beard to add it to our selection. So right now we have the head shape and the beard shape selected, and really only need to do is to simply hit control seven on our keyboard to create a clipping mask. Or we could always go to the object. Manu clipping mask and make. And as you can see, this shortcut control plus seven is right here. Okay, so now that we have the beard created that the next step will be to actually create some kind of a some kind of lips and maybe show show some parts of his off his chin as well. Eso In order to do that again, we will use this guy's this guy's mouth. But this is something that we are actually going to do in the next video 12. Let's create the lips: and this we don't We're going to create the lips, and we're going to make some parts of his off his chin show show through his show through his beard. So again, what we where we want to do is we want to simply grab this guy, this this teeth part, Andi, simply copy and paste it in France. I'm gonna go with control. See, Commander, welcome PNC on a Mac control C control effort. Um, and then commence CIA command f on a Mac to paste this guy in front. And I'm simply going to make it just a bit bigger. Not by 1 30 Let's see one of 15. 1 15 should be fine. And I'm simply gonna hit OK, and I'm gonna move it up to somewhere here. That should be fine. And again, I'm gonna grab the direct selection tool Click on this bottom anchor Point deleted just like that. And I'm simply going to exchange that filled with stroke till have this this kind of shape created Now, if you want, you can make it smaller or you can make it bigger if you want. Maybe let me make it smaller to something like 98%. This should be fine. That we want to do right now is we don't want to reflect it to the bottom because it wouldn't look. It wouldn't look okay. I mean, this part that we are actually going to show in a second wouldn't wouldn't look OK, trust me on that one. You if you want, you can experiment with that. But I think that there's a better way to create him. The show that we are looking for. So I'm simply going to grab this bottom part of his off his mouth. This red part right here and again, I am simply going to copy and paste it in front, and I'm going to make it bigger. I think again something like 1 15 should be fine. And I'm simply gonna hit OK, and I'm going to move it down to somewhere. Here. This you'll be fine. Thank God I'm going toe. The direct selection will select this anchor point and I'm going to delete it and let me just exchange the field with the stroke so you can see it. And there we go. We got this ship created and we did it just like that so we can mimic this. This well, this mollifying this lip line, I mean, this this curve down down here in the bottom. Well, let me just maybe move just a bit up. And really, all we need to do right now is we need to simply grab both these guys some shift clicking on them, and then go with control J one more time. And if you don't like this, this curve right here or this thesis corner right here and I don't like it as well. So what we could do is we could simply remove it, and I am going to will remove them. So I'm going to select them with the direct selection tools. I'm going to initialize it by pressing the A key on the keyboard. I'm gonna press on this ankle point like that, and then I'm going to shift click on this anchor point just like so. And as you can see, I got different options in my control panel that correspond with my selection. So I'm simply going to click on this, remove selected ankle points just like so to maybe even what? Maybe make this and this line a bit more and more straight. So all they would only really need to do now is to simply simply why give give a proper, proper fill color to this to this shape. So I'm simply going to with the eyedropper tool, simply sample this guy like that, this color, his face color and I'm going move it to the bottom, just like so by pressing the control control left bracket on my keyboard. So there we go. This is how easily you can actually created this guy's goatee and and he's his mouth. So in the process, we used some simple transformations and some simple shapes, like the Ellipse stool, which we moved which, which anchor points three off its anchor points. We moved up, and then we used some simple joining some simple Pathfinder transformations in order to complete the shape. So the next step would be to add this little part of his beard down here to the bottom and then to add to added, that knows. So that's something that you're interested in. Keep watching 13. Let's add the nose: in this video, we are going to create this guy's nose and this bottom part of his go and go t. So let's actually start with that part. So that's gonna be as easier simply grabbing the rectangle tool and simply maybe finding this bottom anchor point Alta clicking or optionally going on it and simply creating a nice rectangle that is going to look something like that. Let me just sample this thing's brown color. So I'm going to initialize that the eyedropper told by pressing the I key on the keyboard that I'm simply going to click on it to make it look something like that. Okay, now let's move to the nose. And creating the nose is actually also quite easy. But it needs just a just, um, like, careful, careful adjustments. So I'm gonna grab the Ellipse tool from my from my tools panel. I'm gonna find the center spot off this off. This beard thickets summer here. This is this anchor point right here. I'm going to click on it, old click on it, and I'm going to create an ellipse that is going to look something like that on. I'm going to give it a proper filled color. This, like skin told color just like so. And I think I'm going to move it just a bit up, just like so. And the next thing to do is would be to simply create dude to ellipses that one would go on to the left and another one would go on the right. And of course, they need to be the thing to be significantly smaller. So I'm going to create one that is going to look something like that. I'm going to reposition it to somewhere here. There we go and zoom in a bit more and maybe let let me move it to the to the laughed to somewhere here and I'm going Teoh rotated ever so slightly to something like so maybe not. Maybe that see them too much. That should be fine. And all we really need to do is to simply reflected to the right and we already know how to do that. So I'm gonna go there with the reflection tour. I'm gonna initialize it by pressing the okay on the keyboard, and I'm gonna alter click on this bottom anchor point of this ellipse old click and of course I want this reflection to vertical, and I'm simply going to hit copy, just like so. So let me know. Zoom back out just like that and we can. As you can see, we created this guy's nose really, really simple. Of course, if we want we can make, we could make thes guys just maybe just a bit bigger. Maybe like 1 20 Let's see what it looks like right now. Yeah, this will be fine. So as you can see, you can actually create some some elements or make make an illusion off some elements off some parts appearing in our design just by just by adding some simple, some simple shapes and putting them against a proper background or over over a proper background. Or like in this gate, the background is our beard to to simulate the Lucan off this guy's nose just like that. Okay, so in the next video, we are going to create them the sound glasses of those hips or sunglasses that we saw, and actually with glasses that we can see again the right here. So let me just take a closer look at them. So again, we're going to create thes thes shapes off sunglasses with a simple ellipse and some simple transformations we already know. Well, I guess you could get what's going to happen, since we are already created at the mouth shape just by just by manipulating some ankle points in our lips. And then we are going to create these reflections with ellipses. But we're going to actually learn a tool called opacity opacity mask. So if it's something that you're interested in, just keep watching. 14. Let's start creating the sunglasses: in this video, we're gonna create the sunglasses. These are these sunglasses right here. And before we start on doing that, let me just zoom in on me real quick before you start creating on them. And let me just point out one thing. Now, you might be tempted to use the pen tal to create this kind of an irregular shape. And of course, you could do that. But I think that we could achieve it, and it is better to achieve it. To create it with some different was Well, in fact, the Ellipse tal in this case. And you might be wondering why I am so why I am not using the panel. But that's simply because one of my one off the key the things about my teaching method, is that if you can actually do something more simple, yeah, you should do it more simple. And in this case, I think, no, actually, in the case of creating many irregular shapes, you can You can create them using different different tools of than the mental and just transforming them or their anchor points just a just a bit. Of course, I use the panel, but I used them on Lee when I really have to when I don't see no other way to create a certain shape if not with them with the panel. So in this case, we are going to create this main main glass shape with the lips tool. So let me just move on to the proper to the proper layer. Okay? I'm gonna I want to be on this on this hip circle, A got a guy, layer, and I am going to move to my art board. And you know what? I think that I'm move. These guys had a bit to the left just so I have some more room to work with right here. And let me just zoom in quite a bit. So I'm gonna grab the Ellipse tool. I'm gonna make sure that I have some actually, some stroke here so you can see what I'm doing in my aren't board. And if I just hold down the shift key, I'm going to create in the lips, just like so Now, in order to achieve that to create that irregular shape all I really I already I'm going to do I'm gonna grab that That direct selection tool that I'm simply going to click on this anchor point. And I am simply going to move it up and right, Uh, maybe to somewhere here and there is absolutely no right or wrong here. The shape that you are going to come up with might be different than the shit that I have right here. And that's absolutely fine. I mean, this is your creation. This is your design. And actually, I encourage you to simply grab an anchor point play with the ankle point, lay with his positioning, maybe play, but with the direction handled, something like that. Just have fun with it and actually see for yourself what you can achieve by simple, simple anchor point manipulation. So as you can see what just it was just a simple few clicks. Really was, like, four or five clicks. I created this nice looking this nice looking glass glass ship. So again, let me just grab the ellipse. Tal, I'm gonna make make sure that I have that I have the shift key pressed, and I'm gonna grab the anchor point, the drank selection port and now the direct direct selection tool. And now I'm gonna grab the anchor point. And I'm simply going to move, move this ankle upon somewhere to the right. And I could maybe, like, direct this guy into the right to create simply different, different Lucan off my my class. Maybe if I bring out this handle all the way to let I'm going to get some this funky little mathematical shape which I don't want. And if I drag this handle down, I'm going to get this kind of issue. It's really, really, really up to you would shape you you're going to come up with. Okay, so now that I have this, this shit created this main shape created, believe it or not, But the most part of the most part is done. Of course, what we need to do is we need to simply maybe let's get rid of the stroke for now. And let's give this guy some. So some dark failed, like this one. If you want, you're gonna go with some maybe some dark, dark blue collar that's really up to you. I'm gonna go with I'm gonna go with plain black. And now what we want to do is we want to add the's reflections toe the left. And as I mentioned before, we're going to create them using the opacity mask. And if if you are familiar with masking photo shop, well, that just works just like well, in illustrating towards just like it does in in a photo shop. So let's create a that the reflection we're going, we're going to mask it. These in the opacity mask. But let's do that. Actually, in the next video in this video, I just wanted Teoh. I just want to show you how you can create this this glass shape simply by using them by dragging. The anchor points off a simple, humble Hubble bulbs without the need off, grabbing off, touching even the mental. So let's let's actually learn some some some things about the opacity masks in the next video. 15. What are opacity masks?: in this. You don't You're going to create their reflections and we're going to learn a thing or two about about opacity masks. So the first thing I'm gonna do is we're gonna create in the lips and I am going to make it to make something like that cause I am trying to trying to create a reflection. So it's going, it's gonna look something like this. Of course I'm going to make it lighter. Let's say I'm gonna make it white just like that, Okay, An important step right now. In order to create an opacity mask, you need to be sure that you have your transparency panel right here. Or of course you could. You could always go to to the opacity here, the this link here that will that will actually open them the transparency and that transfer transparency pound, but to create to create an opacity mask, we need to have this transparency panel on. Okay, No opacity masks kind of work like a like clipping masks. But of course, in a sense that you need Teoh, you need to understand that you have an object that you will be masking and the object that you will be masking with. So in our case, we want to mask this guy because let me just maybe make it, make this guy this color. Because, of course, we only wanted to be shown with them at the boundaries off of Hourglass, right? We don't want it to be shown outside of our of our of our glass. And of course, since right now it's white against white, we actually can see the this piece. But as soon as we let me just create it quickly, quickly, a little background. But of course, right now we can see that we actually got this reflection reflection showing him going out of the boundaries of our class. So this this this ellipse right here is going to be our reflection. So what? This is theology that I want to be masking, and my glass is actually an object that I want to be masking it with. So I'm going to simply copy this guy into my clipboard, So I'm going to press control C or a command. See if you're on a Mac, I'm gonna collect on this on this ellipse. That's gonna be a reflection. And this is for an important step. Remember to copy the glass in this case and then select and only have this selected and select our our lips. So now what I'll do. I'm going to go to the transparency panel and I'm simply going to press this Make mask button Now off course. You can't see anything right now because we are masking. We are masking our our reflection. And you guys who are familiar with mascot in the photo shop are in a better position here because you know, the basic, the principle, the basic principle of masking of opacity masks. And if you don't, let me just briefly explain it to you. Basically, everything that is black is covering and everything that is white is is shown so black highs and white white shows or uncovers. So in this case, you can see that you can see these two, these two squares right here and for for our technique to work, we need to make sure that we are actually only on the mask right here. So on this black square So right now I am in my in my masking mode. So if I know simply go ahead and press control f on my keyboard. So I am based in my glass shape in front. You can see that I am actually not showing my reflection. And that's because my glass is black. And as we already know, black hides and white What shows or uncovers? So the only thing that I really need to do right here is to simply turn this guy into, well, give it a wide felt. So if I simply press white, you can see that I have my my shape, my shape of being a being shown. But of course, you don't deal be. You need Teoh. You don't need to limit yourself to only black and white. You can go with some shapes of great to make your reflections or or the things that you want to show. You kind of give them, like, maybe like a shading or something like that, maybe, like, take their opacity a bit down the using sounds from different different shades off. Great. Also, we can simply go to the Grady and panel and a simple Grady int. And you can see that since in my in my case, I have for this light great going, going well, starting on the left and it goes to black on the right. I'm actually making my reflection a bit different in this case. So if I simply change this collar to Blaine Wide Lane White, you can see my reflection is starting to look look differently as well. What's also cool about this is that I can simply grab the grating, told by president geeky. And I can only apply the great into to my reflection by simply clicking somewhere here and bringing it all the way to the right and I'm on now, I I could manipulate this Grady int and I can manipulate the look of my of my reflection just like so. And if I now actually turned this white into someone into some shade of gray made these something like that, let's see, like that you can see it would have nicely looking a reflection created in a matter of just a few minutes. So now don't forget to simply go back to your normal mode because we are still in the mask mode, remember? And now I am back in my back in my normal mode, and I can continue creating my design off course, it's a good idea to simply grab these guys and group them. And we will do that later in the process. Because before we actually do that, I think I'm going to add some stroke to this guy. So because I I think I want to have some frame right here. So let me see what it looks like. Zoom in a bit. So, as you can see, my reflection is not are actually reflecting on the frame itself, but only on the glass. Because this is the This is the look that I wanted to go for. Why not wait Can go for something like that and actually, let me just delete the background. And now we can actually group both these guys and start start creating the rest of the rest fragments off the off the sunglasses. So let's actually do that in the next video. So in this video, you learn how to create the opacity masks. And really, if you just understand that black heights and sheer and white shows, you'll under understand everything about masking and also an important note here. Remember to let me just go back here. Remember that you're in order to to actually make the mask and happen. You need to. You need to be working in this right panel in the in the masking mode. So these two assumptions, if you learn them, if you memorize them, you will be well. You'll be really good to go to, to use opacity masks in your own designs, so let's continue building on the sunglasses in the next video. 16. Let's finish the sunglasses: in visited. We're going to finish creating the sunglasses. So all we really need two days to simply Gramp this group. Does this left glass on? Go to the reflection tool. And of course, we can do that by pressing the okay on the keyboard or go into the tools panel if you want to work like that. But I device using the old Theo Key on the keyboard and let me just grab Let me just all click on this anchor point. And of course, I want my reflection to be vertical, and I'm simply gonna hit copy just like that. Now, move. This guy's slightly to the right. Uh, this should be fine. Let's leave it like that. Now I'm gonna Greta, grab a simple rectangle toe and simply create erect directing that is going to look something like that. I'm going to give it a proper black color and put it all the way to the back, just like so. And now I'm going to create and on the lips. Yeah, I think I'm gonna go with in the lips and I'm going to create one like that. So I'm holding down the old key to start drawing from the center. Um, this may be just a bit more just like that, and I wanted to have wanted to have a stroke out of film and let me just crank it a bit up . Maybe do three points. Let me see what it looks like. Let me just bring just a bit down. Okay, let's leave it like that. Of course you can play around with this with this. Value are all day long if you want. That's so. Of course, I don't need this bottom part. So the direct selection tool that we can initialize by pressing the A Q and A keyboard. I'm simply going toe collect on this bottom anchor point and simply delete just like that to get rid off that off, that of the anchor point and actually the whole path segment. I'm going to grow wrap that the rounded rectangle tool, and I'm simply going to create a rounded rectangle that is going to look something like So . Of course, I wouldn't have only in the film, not the stroke, and again I'm going to I'm going to put it in the back, so I'm simply going to use the control shift plus left bracket combination and I don't want to I don't want to target this guy. Just lock it. And so I'm going to reflect this guy again. I'm using the reflector, which I'm initializing they present the okay on the keyboard. Gonna find the center mark on this on this rectangle, Possibly goto all click on it. Yes, I do want on the reflection to be vertical and I'm simply going to hit copy just like so And in order to align African nicely I'm simply going t o I just love this guy. I'm simply going to create a group out of these about both. These glasses are simply going to shift, click on them and go control Gene Teoh group them. And I am also going to group this guy if I could only selected properly. Sorry. Whenever you have problems selecting something's an illustrator. If it's if if you have different like we have in opacity mass, we have a group right here. We have some shape right here. I think that the easiest way to simply select things like that is to simply go to the for the outline mode so you can either click will press control Why? Or command why on your keyboard? Or simply go to the view manual outline and now have all only the path shown here. Simply good to click on this on this path. And then I'm going to shift click on this path in order to create a group out of these guys . And now, if I go back to my preview mode, I know that I have a group right here and I have a group right here. So all I really want is I want to simply make sure that all these guys aligned properly in relation to each other. So I'm simply going to select, select them all, go to the align panel and simply click this horizontal alliance center just like that, another to make sure that everything is aligning properly. And if I just zoom out a little bit, select all these guys and group them again. I'm simply going to maybe make them just a bit smaller and let me see what it looks like. It's definitely too small, so I'm going to make them bigger. Something like that. Of course, we could also play around, play around with the position off the eyebrows and the eyes a bit. If you want to do that, just go ahead. Maybe, actually, I am going to move it in order to be sure that we have that we're moving our elements in the same well, by the same distance. I think is best to simply used there. Used the move tool. And you can access it by president, but that will clicking on the selection tool. And let me just move this guy. I wanna move vertically. I'm simply going to move it horizontally by 10 pixels. Why not? And I'm going to the same with this guy. But this time I simply to enter minus tan, just like so in order to move it a bit to the left and not Maybe I'll just bring these guys just a bit down and there we go. We got the sound glasses created, and let me just move this guy, but to the right to someone here and zoom in. So there we go. We create the sunglasses. So we simply reflected our reflected the lot of the laughter glass to the right and added some elements right here. So we used the rectangle toe the lips and a around it rectangle tool. And then we aligned everything to the center. So there we go. We got well, actually, we got all on their face on whole face created. So the next step will be to create his torso. So to create the neck to create, well, the rest of his body, the color and the tie. So that's something that you're interested in. Just keep watching. 17. Let's start creating the torso: in this. You don't We're going to start creating our personal tour. So and we're going to start with creating this guy's well neck is and his shoulders and Apple Macs like the main shape of his torso. So I'm simply going to make this guy's haps just of it smaller so you can see everything better and again. I am not going to touch the pen tal. I am Oh however going to use the Ark Tool, which sits right here under the line segment. So I'm simply going to collect on the path. Let me just maybe zoom in a bit. Actually, I'm going to click somewhere here on the path just like that, and I'm going to start Dragon and Art. And of course, we already know that in order to change their own, the slope of the of the Ark Weaken simply reflected by pressing the Afghan on the keyboard . And just like that, we can already see that we are actually starting to create this guy's this guy's head and upper neck and a part of his of his shoulder. So I'm simply going to release the most bottom, and now I'm simply gonna find this this left bank report and click on and drag again. And I'm going going to press the key again to flip this Arctic create sees his hand actor actually on the part of the rest of his shoulder till it looks something like that. Now, all I really need to do is to simply click on this this and neck part. And I'm simply going to control season, simply going to copied into my clipboard on a Mac. Of course you'd go with command, See, because I'm gonna need it just in a second to create a the neck. Actually, now all we need to do right now is to simply grab both these guys and join them. So we could either go to the object menu path and join. Or we could use the control. Jaswant, Command Joy J shortcut on a Mac Because right now, Well, just before this transformation, this operation, of course, thes paths weren't joint. They were simply like touching each other, but they weren't like 11 a single path. So now that these guys are our joint, you could, of course, may be moved this guy a bit to the right to make his lack a bit a bit, maybe just a bit narrower, a bit thinner. So if you want, you can play with that. But what I want to show you is how easily you can actually build the rest off he say off his body. So I guess you might I guess you might be gassing. What? We're I guess you might be guessing. What's that? What's gonna come next? I'm gonna go wrap this guy some simply selecting with selection tool. Activating the reflected by pressing the okay on the keyboard. You can see it being highlighted here in the tools panel. And now I'm going to find this bottom corner off his off his jaw or off his mouth, the bottom anchor point. So I know that I'm actually going to be reflecting his door. So in, well, the part of the story in relation to dissenter off his face. So I'm simply going to find this anchor point Ulta click on it, and I do in the reflection to be vertical. Most of the reflections we are using here are vertical, and I'm simply gonna hit copy just like that and all we really need to do is to simply join these guys. So again, I'm going to select both of these guys, and I'm certainly gonna join twice. Well, I'm gonna hit control Jay to join them twice. And all we really need to do right now is to simply sample he's skin color, some simply going to initialize the the eyedropper tool. By pressing the I key on the keyboard, I'm gonna click on his face just like so, and I'm going to move it all the way to the back. And we could do that either by going to the object menu. Arrange sent tobacco by pressing the shift control left bracket on our keyboard. That is, command a ship commander. Love the record on on a Mac. And just like that, we created this guy's neck and torso. But of course, we don't want them to be naked off. That's not that kind of design. So I'm simply going to give his store. So, actually, I'm going going to convert it into a shirt, some simply going to press the thing. I'm gonna give this light grey filled, just like so. And there you go. This is how easily we can create this persons of this person's line will neckline and his shoulder and the rest but maybe not the rest but the main part of his office store. So So we simply used the IARC toe to create this this long line right here, and we reflected it to the right and then just join them in the next video. We are actually going to create this guy's neck and remember that we still have this part of his office shoulder carpet in tow, Inter clipboard. So if I just based it and you can see that is actually here, of course, we just moved it a bit to the left. So we're going to fix it. Well, we move the torso, but to the right, so we're going to fix that in a second. Well, actually, we're going to fix it in the next video, so stay tuned 18. Just a quick trick on how to create a shading on the neck: in this video. We are going to create this this person snack and we are going to use this line right here to actually do that. I remember that we have copied that. We copied this, this'll part in the last video into her clipboard and then pasted it in front. But in between we simply move this guy a bit. Well, his torso a bit to the right. So illustrator, based into this thistle line in the spot where it was copied from. So all we really need to do is to simply either just fine will try to match it with his with this guy's shoulder just like that. If you want to do it like that, I think we've got a pretty good match right here. But for some reason, you can do it or you don't want to do it. All you really knew could do or need to do so. Simply activate the direct selection tool or press the a key on the keyboard or click click right here as a drag around this path segment to simply select only the segment between this anchor point and this anchor point it command C or control see on a PC. Commence control. CNN control F Actually, based on Lee this path segment Of course I want I want to have only the stroke to show you that we actually have this by a path right here. Remember, legis make it green like so So you can see that we have this path right here that I'm going to select it with the selection tool. Activate the rotator by pressing the okey and again find the bottom an anchor point that is going to be somewhere here. And I'm simply going toa alta Click on it reflected vertically copy. And there we go. We got both these lines and I created Of course, all that's left today's to simply collect on both these both these lines and simply go and simply go Well, we could go with control of J. So if I just joined these guys and then select this thing filled right here, we got to this. Actually, we already have some kind of blackie sweater Look right here, but ultimately want to create a shirt and some vast and a tie. So there's actually one more thing we would need to we would need to do so I'm gonna just go ahead and step a few times back, just like that. And actually, I don't think I am going. Teoh reflect this whole this whole segment, What I will do is, um I have a little simply cut it up into equal pass, but I am going to cut it. So I'm simply going to activate the scissors toe that is just there. Still right here. That has a handy short cut off Blair See, Owner keyboard. And I'm simply going to click Come, Maybe somewhere here in their path and all I really need to dress nice to simply hit delete to delete this path, just like so Now I am going to grab this this green and this green the path and again I can't really do it sensibly going to lock this got president by clicking on it and pressing the control to on my keyboard and Nike and simple target this line and I'm going to activate the rotator by pressing the okay on the keyboard. And I'm going to find this ankle point and simply click on it to reflect it to the right. Copied, Copied the select both these guys and simply joined them. And on there we go. We got we got the neck created. Now, before we move on to actually creating the collar right here, there's just one piece of advice 11 thing that that I think we would have to we would have to note right here in this case that we have, like this beard die down here, we can actually see the distinction between the neck and his face. But what if let's say that you don't have a beard that you want this guy's face to be smooth or review would just want his moustache? You're just giving them a stash. So what, then? Actually, if we if we had something like that, So let me just maybe on group all these guys and let me just move his his beard to the right, As you can see, right? As you can see right now, way actually can see any distinction between his neck and his face and the usual. The usual routine that you can you can used in this scenario is to simply add some kind of a shading here on his neck and in order to do that. I think it's best simply double click on this next to simply enter isolation mode. Grab their line segment tool, that is, that is sitting right here and simply drawing a line like that and then just act to that the next to the selection. So I'm simply shift clicking on the neck. I'm gonna go to the to the Pathfinder tool hit divine like here. And I don't need to un group all these guys because remember that the result of each path final transformation is a group. So we can all we could on a group it or we could simply targeted piece of this group with their direct selection toe some simply going to target this top top guy right here. Make sure I have the fill active and I'm going to grab maybe this guy, this this darker skin tone. And as you can see, we got some some distinction and going on right here. Of course, we could create a bigger distinction. I mean, we could create a bigger lines, so let's actually do that. So let me just maybe move my line a bit to the bottom, but I think that already you know what we want to achieve. Achieve right here. Right? So if I just make this guy darker and there we go, we got some some shading going on right here. So just just the thing to remember that we knew when you don't have, like, a distinction of a different color here in in the in the jaw line, all you really would have to do is to simply mark the job by by adding some kind of a shading to the neck. Okay, so now that we got all that, we can actually start creating this guy's color and then the vest and then the tie to actually finish the first. The first look off our of our guy. So that's something that you're interested in. Keep watching. 19. Let's create the collar: in this video, we are going to create that collar. And in order to do that way, we need to have one thing in mind and we need to actually do one more thing. I want to let me just go back to the original. I want Teoh create this kind of a V shape right here. So how can we do that? Actually, quite simply, if I just select this this guy's neck, I could maybe trying to get the pen tal actually at anchor point. Oh, and maybe try to find the centers for right here. But that might be not too accurate. And accuracy is what we want in this process. So in order to be absolutely certain that you have like that, we are actually going to create the V starting from this from the absolute center between these two are left and right ankle points only really need to do is to simply go to the object. Manu path. Add ankle points toe, add unequal amount will twice the amount of the anchor point that were already present in our shape. But really, all we need is this bottom guy right here. We can now be sure That is exactly halfway between the left and the right anchor point. So if I simply click on it, hold down the shift key and move it down to somewhere. Here, you can see the reaction. We are actually creating this V line right here. How? In order to create them the collar, all we need to do it Just zoom in a bit is to simply borrow this line right here some again , clicking on it with the direct selection tool. I'm clicking on this line right here. And if I simply copy and pasted in front and we already know the combination for that and that's control C control, have command C command F on a Mac. You can see that I actually have carpet and paste this guy simply in front right here. I'm gonna give it some nice stroke so you can see better. Okay, Just like that. And all I need to do right now is to simply grab it, hold down the bulky and move it somewhere. Here. This should be fine and numb again. I'm gonna grab the red selection tool and moved this right anchor point a bit down to maybe , I don't know, somewhere here. Maybe even but more toe somewhere here. Okay, Now what I want to do is I want to simply joined these guys. So I'm simply going to shift click on them with their selection toe. To simply add that these guys both to the selection and I'm gonna hug. Click Will press Control J twice Command J on a Mac. And there we go. We got this left part of the color color created. Of course, it needs to have the proper film, not the stroke. So there we go. Of course you might have. You might see some imperfections right here. So, like, we can see that, actually, this anchor point is not matching this line perfectly. So I'm simply going to grab it and maybe move it. Something like that. And I'm going to simply simply zoom out just like so. And of course, we could still play around. Maybe with this guy right here, moving slightly to the right and to the bottom, just like so. Okay. I guess you know what's gonna happen now. I am going to simply grab this part initialize there. The reflect will be pressing the okey click on this anchor point and click actually own it . And I want the the reflection to be vertical and I am simply gonna hit copy, just like so. And there we go. We got the collar created. Now the next part would be to simply create this guy's tie. So if that's something that you're interested in, keep watching. 20. Let's create the tie: in this video, we're going to create this guy's tie. And the easiest way to do that, I believe, is to simply grab the rectangle toe, create erect angle that is going to be a bit well wider than this told something like that should be fine. And with the direct selects until I'm simply going to grab both these bottom anchor points , I'm going to initialize the skeletal by president, the asking and then enter to enter this dialog box. And I want to uniformly scale it down to something around 50% maybe even 60%. And of course, by doing that, I'm bringing these these two anchor points to closer together. So once I'm happy with that, I'm simply going to click. OK, and and actually, I think that we might even bring both these anchor points a bit down, or maybe just make this guy a bit smaller. Maybe this should be fine to create her. The rest of the Thai over need to do is to simply grap on the rectangle tool again, find this bottom, alert this bottom left ankle port and start creating a rectangle that is going to be there is going to be sparing from this left anchor point almost to the to the right anchor point I want I wanted to finish just before that on I I think I am going to stop somewhere here. Now I'm going to select both these guys, go to the align panel and make sure that they both align vertically just like so. And now I'm going to move this guy bit down to somewhere here and, of course, usually in the time the bottom part is a bit wider than than the top part. So again, with their with around it with the direct selection to select it, I'm simply going toe Marquis around both these two and proposed the super bottom anchor points. Initialize the skeletal by president as and then enter on the keyboard on a Mac could go as and return. And I'm simply going to scale it up to 1 60 very 1 50%. This should be fine. And all that's left to do is to simply give it the right collar. And I think in the originally was this yellow color off this guy as well, and I don't need any stroke, so I'm going to get rid of it. And now if I simply make this guy smaller, like, significantly smaller and put it somewhere here, place it exactly. Here, let me just zoom in real real quick. I am now going to make you reposition it ever so slightly. And make sure that is that is just being beneath the color. But it's a sitting on the shirt, so I'm simply going to hold down the control key and press the left bracket to simply position it just like So. Now, of course, if you want, you could still play around. Maybe with these bottom anchor points to maybe make make this shirt toe look properly and match. It matches the other side something like that. But I am just going to leave it up to you up for your experimentation and up for your imagination and creativity. Okay, so let me just leave it like that. And in the next video, all we really need to do is to simply is to simply create the vast and then simply clip everything. So it is. Um everything is nicely clipped, so everything looks properly and nicely. So in this video you learn how to quickly. The creator creator, the neck and remember to manipulate the top path off this off this time. And the bottom of path of this, like all we really need to do, is to simply select both both anger Burns entered the scale tool and then just play around with this uniform value. Maybe this thing, I was gonna bring it just a bit down and move this tie just a bit up, just like so. So in the next video, as I said, we're going to continue creating. Well, actually, we're going to finish creating these guys. These guys clothes by creating the vest and then simply clipping everything. So it looks nicely and looks nicely. So see you in the next video. 21. Let's create the vest: in this video. We're going to finish the first appearance off our hipster guy and we are going to create his vest and believe it or not, this time I am going to use the panto. So I'm simply going to grab it from the tools panel and I'm going to collect somewhere here . I really don't have to be precise. I don't have to worry about clicking on this path and the I'm going to click somewhere here than maybe somewhere here. Then somewhere here and then somewhere here. And I think I'm going to give a nice blue collar and I'm going to get rid of the stroke just like so. And of course, what we need to do is going to simply make sure we have the same looking. Maybe let's even make it just a bit bigger. Something like that. We need to make sure that we have this guy being reflected to the right some again. I'm gonna go with them reflection talk sensibly, going to activate it by pressing the okay on the keyboard. And I'm going to find this anchor point right here. That is the anchor point where these parts of the color touching, so I'm simply going toe all click on it. And I do want this reflection Toby for to go. And I'm simply gonna hit copy, just like so. So the last thing to do would be to simply Clinton clip all these elements with a clipping mask. So what I want to do is I want to simply select both these parts of his vest, and I'm gonna shift, click on the color and on the time. And I'm simply going to group everything by pressing the control gear on my keyboard on command G on a Mac. I am going to click on my on this on this shirt off this shape and simply going to cop it into my clipboard. Collect on, for instance, on his vest. I'm actually clicking are clicking on the group, which you can see here in the control panel that I'm simply going to hit control after pace that pace to this shape in front. Now I'm gonna add to the selection the group that I created, and I'm simply gonna go with control seven or command seven on a Mac two created clipping group. So there you go. We created We created this this vest and actually completed the look off our hips or guy. So in the process we used quite a lot of different different techniques, starting with some appearance panel and the ark tool that we use the the the pencil Told to create his hair, we created the ears with the spiral Tuell we created the mouth with with some simple ellipse transformations, we clipped his beard. Then we created his knack with an arc tool and the rest of the stores over the article as well. We created the collar with some simple with some simple transformations, some simple joining. We created the tie with the rectangle tool and now we created the vest with the pen tal just to finish everything off. Now, of course, the last thing to do would be to simply create a background for this guy. And if you if you want it can be a simple rectangular background like we have in the original. So I'm simply going to create one just like so, maybe make it this this well, this off blue color, put it and put it in the back. But if you want, you could simply create an ellipsis ellipse cretin, an elliptical background and maybe maybe clip it like that to create, to create a clipping mask off course. We are not done completely because we still need to create this guy's this guy's suit just like that. And then we need to create this this sweater. So that's something that you're interested in. Keep watching. 22. Let's create the suit: in this video, we are going to change this guy so vast into a suit and let me show you how easily it is to Dio. Thanks to that, all the stats we actually took beforehand to create the this kind of a look. So, first of all, I think that his vast looks a bit strange. I mean, it appears like his hands are well, well, really too fat or may or something wrong with the vest. So since it is a group, it is a clip group in order to communicate with the elements inside a group. As we already know, we have to use that direct selection tool. So let me just maybe get rid of this guy's I'm simply going to delete it. And I think I'm going to grab this anchor point, move it a bit to the left to summer here and this guy a bit to the left as well to something like that, and noticed that since it is a clipping mask where we can actually go really, really out of bounds, we can really move it to wherever we want. And we are still going to constrain this, that this vast to to this guy said to do this guy's shoulders, so I'm simply going to maybe reflected again to the rights. I'm gonna use the reflect all for that. So let me just simply quickly reflected something like so okay now to create his to create , to convert his vast into A into A into a suit, really Only need to do is to simply will manipulate that these anchor points. So let me just delete this guy and let me just click on this part of the vest that I'm simply going to crude click on this anchor point and move it all the way to the left and this bottom left ankle point. I'm gonna move all the way to the left as well. Just like so now this right ankle part is gonna go to somewhere here to the right toe till it covers part of his tie. And now I'm going to grant the pan tal and simply add an ankle point Does somewhere here, this should be fine. And now again, I'm gonna grab the direct selection tool that I have just initialize by pressing the a key on the keyboard. Click on this ankle point and simply move it to summer here just like so and really only need to do so again. Grab this guy and remember to use the direct selection tool for that. Grabbed this guy initialize the reflective depressant T oki and then old clicking on this anchor point. And I'm simply gonna hit copy, just like so. And there we go. All we will really need to do right now is to simply maybe change the background to Green And maybe this type Teoh blue, just like so. So there you go. This is how easily you can. You can convert some some shapes and that are constraint, or there are inside a clipping group or clipping mask there with there with some simple, simple dragon with that direct selection tool. So we drag this guy's this guy's vest all the way to the left, and that reflected this part to the right to create this kind of a this kind of a suit, the kind of a shape. Now, the last part to do here would be to simply create this kind of a sweater. Look like this guy here, like this guy right here has So that's something that we are actually going to do in the next video 23. Let's create the sweater: in visitor. We are going to create the last look of our hipster guy. And before we actually start doing it, let me just maybe quickly change the background color. Just so so you know, is just so it looks differently already. And in order to create this kind of a sweater, look right here, all we really need to do is to simply get rid off both these. The parts of our off, if he's actually off his jackets on some targeting them with the direct selection tool and simply delete in them. I'm gonna do the same with his time and his color, just like so. And I am going to grab this path right here. And maybe I am going to change it to this this green color, just like so. And we already kind of have, like, a sweater look, just just by removing some things I have just zoom in real quick. But we need to know what we want to add to this this caller right here. So that's as easy as simply clicking on the direct selection tool on this bottom anchor point. So I have only this ankle point selected, but in fact, I have both these paths segment selected because if I don't simply go control, see and comment f And if I exchanged to fill with this croak and I'm going to make it like this Dark green, you can already see that we have this this color, this color being being visible, being created. So this is one away. We could do this. But if you would like to change the Luca the look of his color, we can We can actually do some simple tricks in order to make it make it look look different. So before I actually based will copy this anchor point and then pacing back in front, I'm simply going to convert it. So first, I'm going to target it with the direct selection told, I'm simply going to click on it. And here the control panel. I'm simply going to click on this convert selected Agra points to smooth just like that. And as you can see, Illustrator has converted this this sharp anchor point into this world anchor point, just like so. And we already have a different looking to his collar. But I'm simply going to click on this anchor point just one more time and drag it by this direction. Handle on holding down the shift key and maybe look where smarter guys actually show me where where this handle is, actually in line with them with the right part of his off his mouth. I'm going to release the mouse button just like that. And then I'm gonna click on this left handle, and I am going to move it to something. It's to somewhere like Like that. So this is how easily I converted Hiss like V neck into a turtle Lank. Is that what you call it? I'm not really sure. But as you can see, the color already looks, looks, looks, looks different. So if I just click on this ankle point again and now copy pasted in front, exchanged affair with the stroke and make a dark green, you can already see that we have some different different effect applied just like that and before we wrap everything up. But there's just one more thing I'd like to show you One more trick elected. I wanted to show you in order to mark like the hands off our guy if you want. If you want to do that, all you would really need to do to something grabbed the line tool and simply create a line that would look something like that. And of course, since it has a stroke, you could simply maybe make it smaller black to someone like maybe four of four points. But if you don't want to do that, if you simply want to quickly make make your your line look as as thin as possible simply creating line and then just give it Phil and don't give it any stroke. And illustrator will create a very, very, very, very subtle line like this one. So all we will really have to do is to simply reflected this guy to the right. And again, I am going to find this bottom anchor point on his job and simply copy to the right just like that, and you can see that we have. And we have, like these these hands being being emphasized right here. So there you go. We got we got all the looks, all the looks create 123 looks off our hipster guy. So in the process, we learned quite a lot and let's actually let's actually go through that. Let's actually let's actually recap what we learned in the next video 24. In Conclusion: So in this video, let's quickly recap what we have learned during during the course. So first we created a simple ellipse to create a on well had of our of our person. So we used a simple, simple ellipse still to create this egg shape right here. Then we used the Ellipse still to actually create this guy's eyes that we can that we can see underneath after need the glasses. So let me just quickly show them to you. Let me just cut this guy. So we created this guy's eyes using using a simple, simple ellipse stole. Of course, they don't use that The appearance panel to add these reflections and we used. We used the article to create his eyebrows, and after that we created this guy's years doing. We used Thean, the spiral tool to create the years and then we career we editor. The secondary filled with the appearance of a swell. Then we used the pencil tool we learned about the pencil to to create these guys have remember when we how we changed the values of the pencil toe to simply make a list, do all the have a lift? And for us to create this this set of hair and then we, of course, took just a piece part of his off the left of the left, part of his, her to reflect it to the right and greed this part to the right as well. Then we created his his mouth. So he used a simple ellipse that we simply transformed by dragon bites anchor points to create this kind of a mouth shape right here. And then we divided it to create a his teeth and his mouth. And then we used actually the mouth shaped to create his goatee that we clipped with a clipping mask. And then we created his know simply by creating and recreating some ellipsis and bringing them a bit a bit down. After that, we created his his sunglasses. So way learned how to have to create this a sound, a glass shape on Lee with the with the ellipse still and some simple ankle port transformations. And then we learned how to have to create opacity masks in Illustrator and after that we moved on to the tourists Also, first we created the shape off the neck and then off the tourists with the ark two. We joined it and reflected it to the right. Then we created the neck and we used some simple transformations. We added to actually the anchor points to create this V shape. And then remember, we learned how to create thistle. Kind of a shade in effects, too. Uh created distinction between the face and the shirt and the neck. If you don't have any, any distinct parts right here on your persons chin like a beard in this case that we create the color of the tie and the vest. Of course, At the the end, we clipped everything nicely. So we have everything nicely and I'm nicely looking right here. Then we converted. Tow them the vest into the suit. We changed the color of the tie and we and we clipped it. Well, we changed her change. The Bagram actually. And then we learned how to create this sweater looking shape. So we learned how to create the V neck type. And then how to create this? This round of cholera really know what it's called. And then we just added some simple lines to emphasize emphasize this guy's this guy's hands . So There you go. I hope you really learned a thing or two and I really hope you hope you like the design. Definitely comment on it. And I hope that I made all the all the steps that I took as clear as possible and a so easy . It's possible because this is this is what I really want to make my teaching about. But of course, if something wasn't included supposed to discussion or mass a message me privately I have to ask a certain signature not Teoh not certain about. And so again, see you in some other designs and stay tuned.
