About This Class

Illustrator for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to create vector texture effects in Illustrator. You will learn how to make a texture using pieces of a brush and then how to use these in two ways. The first way is to remove the texture areas from the image so you can 'see through' the image to the objects below. The second way is to add the texture to the image so it appears over the image and so you can color it to suit. This is one example of what you will be learning:

This class showed some good techniques for adding texture to your objects with Illustrator.
This class gives alternate methods to add textures to "shape" objects. You can choose which one to use based on your particular requirements.
Very helpful!! Like the length and just one topic covered!
