1. Intro: Hi, I'm Sarah Rain, and I'm a surface patch in designer and artist, living in Japan. Welcome to my class, Intro to illustrate her for the iPad. I am so excited that Illustrator is finally available on the iPad. Illustrator is one of my favorite programs to design in. The iPad version really enhances and speeds up my workflow, so that I can design more quickly, and more intuitively. I see the iPad version of Illustrator as a companion to the desktop version, because it doesn't have the heavy duty tools that the desktop version has. But it's really powerful, in that it allows us to draw really freely, and precisely, using the Apple pencil. Also, we can take it with us wherever we want to go, and that's amazing. This class is project-based, and each tool's introduced organically, as it's needed. I've designed the exercises so they cover every major tool in the program. You're going to become familiar with the tools without even realizing it. That said, we're going to check off the tools as we learn them so that we can keep track of our progress. One of the tools I'm most excited about is the camera. I'm going to show you how to make textures, out of [inaudible] objects in minutes. By the end of the class, you're going to have a good working understanding of Adobe Illustrator for the iPad, and you'll be able to start using it for your own projects. This class is for beginners, but if you have experience working on the desktop version, then you definitely have a headstart. To follow along, you'll need an iPad with Illustrator installed, and an Apple pencil. I'm really excited for you to join me in class. 2. Class Project and Resources: The class project is to create a chocolate bar. Now you can design your own or you can download my sketches from the class resources section to follow my steps exactly. You can find them in the Projects and Resources section to the right. Simply click on them to download them and they'll appear in your downloads folder. In your Downloads folder, you can right-click, go down to "Share" and select "AirDrop". Choose your iPad and hit "Done". It should now appear in your photos on the iPad. If you have a PC, you can email them to your iPad and save them to your photos. If you're using your own sketch, it's very easy to import it directly into your document. All you need to do is come over here to this photo tool, select "Camera" and that's going to access your camera. You just need to pop your sketch, then take a photo of it from here, press "Done" across here and there it is. It's ready to use now. Once you're finished, please upload your projects to the class project section. There are also a few practice exercises which you can follow along with, which I recommend doing as well. Let's get started. 3. Overview: When you open Illustrator on the iPad, you'll see this home screen. You can see here there's some presets to start a new project and also some recent documents as well that you've been working on. These also sync automatically to the desktop version. So if you open your desktop version of Illustrator, you can continue working on a document that you started over on the iPad. Then here we have Your work underneath Home. Here again are your Adobe Cloud documents. You can access these anywhere with an Internet connection. Under Your work, we have Learn where there are some tutorials made by Adobe. Under Learn is Discover where you can watch other artists live stream as they work in illustrator. Also see other artists work that they've done in Illustrator as well. So let's go to Home and start off by creating a new document. So I'm just going to tap here on custom size. The great thing about Illustrator is that we're working in vector and so it's lossless. So really it doesn't matter too much what size we make our art boards because we can always change this later and there will be no loss in quality. But for now, I'm going to choose A4 in the illustration section. I can name it. Tap here, tap on my keyboard. Now name the skillshare. I'm going to change my units to pixels. I also have the option to change my dimensions, orientation, art boards and color mode. If I'd like to save this as a preset, I can tap here on save this size and name it. Next time I open up this menu is going to appear in the saved section. I'll uncheck that for now and create file. So here we have our toolbar on the left and our task bar on the right. Up here we have some settings and export options. On the bottom left, we have our "Shortcut" button to access the primary shortcuts we tap it. Illustrator also has a secondary shortcut which we can access by tapping and dragging. These shortcuts will depend on whatever tool you are using at the time. Across on the right here we have our Layers panel. Here we can swipe to rename the layer. Layer 1 is fine for now because there is nothing on here. We can lock the layer and hide the visibility. But obviously nothing changes just now because we don't have anything on the art board. Then here we have our grids across here. We can turn them on by tapping next to the grid part here. This can be very useful. You can change the spacing of the grid by tapping under Spacing and just sliding up and down. Or you can type in manually and it'll change as well. Same for subdivisions. Just now, I'm going to turn those back-off and close this panel. So we have our art board here and we can edit this over here using the art board tool. You can see when I tapped on that, my art board was selected and that means that I can change the size freely. I can also come up here to my Properties tab. I can change the dimensions here if I want it to be exact. Like that. That's made it much larger than before. I can create a new one by tapping here again and selecting one of the presets. That created a new document there for me. A new art board, sorry. Under the art board, you can see what's called the common actions bar here. The common actions change depending on what you have selected. So the common actions for this particular selection are to move it with this. This is the Move tool. We can duplicate with the plus. We can also throw in the bin with the "Trash" button. There we go. While we're here, I'll also show you a couple of gestures to undo. We can use two fingers to tap like that, undo again. To redo, we can use three fingers. So that's going to redo your last action. If you get a bit lost on your screen, you can pinch. That will bring you back to the art board that you're working on at that time. So for now, I'm just going to get rid of these art boards and stick with this one. In the next video, we're going to look at shapes, colors, and gradients. I'll see you there. 4. Sun: Shape, Colour and Gradient: In this lesson, we're going to explore the shape, color, and gradient tools by drawing a sun. Feel free to follow along. We're going to start by selecting the shape tool, which is across here, It looks like a square. But if we hold down on in, the other shape options appear. Let's just select the circle and drag it out and you can see here that is unconstrained but if we tap on the shortcut tool here, it becomes constraint. If we tap and drag to access the secondary shortcut, it scales from the center. Here Here can see the common actions tool has popped up and from here we can do a few different things and this changes depending on what you have selected. You can do things like tap on this grid to change the opacity by moving the slider around or you can change the stroke width, again just by moving the slider. Mines white at the moment, but I think you can see the outline there and there are a few different options there as well, they're also like shortcuts really. To change the color, we want to come across here. The top circle corresponds to the fill color, and the stroke corresponds to this bottom one here. Let's tap on the fill at the top and maybe make it a nice yellow color because we're making a sun and so this is the color picker. We have the color wheel, you can change the hue with this ring and then the saturation with the square. You can also access swatches down here and any libraries that you might have saved. To access the stroke, we go down to the bottom here and it's the same deal. You can choose your color and your saturation here but actually I don't think I want a stroke, so I'm just going to tap this little white circle with a red line across it to disable the stroke. This at the moment is the color and if we go up to the fill again, we have the option to make it a gradient. If I tap across here, you'll see that we have three options for gradients, and they all behave slightly differently. This one here has two dots, and if you tap one of them, you can change the color of that dot and you can change the color of the other one too and you can move these points around. You can also add a point by tapping, just like that and then you can move these sliders to change how they interact with each other. You can also tap and the common action bar for this appears, and we can delete it from there. Next to that we have the radial gradient, which is the same really, it behaves in the same way, and we have this one as well, which Adobe describes as dropping little balloons of color. If I tap here, I can drop a color in there and I can change the existing ones and move them around as well. Maybe I want a lighter color as a bit of a highlight, and we can move these around and you can drop in as many colors as you like. You can also increase the size of the radius, like that. That's pretty fun, I think I'm going to get rid of my pink for now and maybe make this one a bit more orange, like that. I'll see you in the next video where we're going to add some rays. 5. Sun: Radial and Grid Repeat: In this video, we're going to add the rays by using the radial repeat tool. Let's begin by going across here and selecting a rectangle from our shape tool or a square, and we can just draw out a rectangle. You can see there's no stroke and the color is white. Let me just change that. I'll tap on here. I'm going to use my eyedropper tool, which is up here, to select a color. Tapping this brings up this tool. If we drag it over this color, it's going to sample whatever color that this little pointy bit is on. Here it's picking up on that yellow and down here it's on the orange. I'm just going to release on the orange. It's made my rectangle orange now. I have my shape and maybe just make it a bit longer. You can see when I move it around, this pink line is appearing, and that is because over here on my grids, I have smart guide selected, and with that turned on, it guides me to show me where the central point is, and it snaps as well, which is quite helpful. I have my ray here and obviously I want some more going round. To do that, I'm going to go across to this tool right at the bottom that looks a bit like a flower, and I'm going to select radial. There it's repeated it for me. It's not quite lined up, so I can just move it, not the right one. Move it here. Again, you can see my guides are helping me center it. I know that's centered. From here, I can increase the size with this dot. I can pull it out and in, and I can also twist it around as well. I wanted something like that, I think. I can also increase my number of rays or decrease with this little arrow here. Here, you can see that I can make some disappear, with this little slider, they go away, you can make them appear or disappear, and same with this one here. But I want them all just now. It's not quite centered anymore. Let me move my sun. There we go. That's how you do the radial repeat. These are all connected to each other. If I edit one of them, it's going to edit them all. If I double tap on one, I can access it and say I want to change its color, I can just go into my color picker here, maybe make it a yellow and you can see they'll all change. If I decide I want to make it a bit fatter, they'll all change as well. If I decide that this is the amount of rays I want and I'm happy with this. Actually, I want to change every other one. I don't want them all to be connected anymore. I can expand them. I'll just come over here to this little dida. I'm still selecting this individual one, so I need to come out of that, tap them all as a whole, come over to the dida. You can see now that the option to expand has appeared. I'm going to hit "Expand", and that means that they're no longer associated or related with each other. They're still, however, in a group. I have the option to ungroup them so that I can manipulate them individually. But I'm actually going to keep them as a group, because we can still access each piece within a group. To access one of the pieces, we need to isolate it. We can isolate by double tapping. There we go. I want every other ray to be a different color. To do that, I can hold down my shortcut here. This axle, it's a bit like the Shift key on a computer. I can go ahead and select the other ones, and they'll all select together. With those selected, I can go ahead and change the color. I think I want my orange back, I'll just go to my eyedropper tool, drag it over the orange. Now, I have my sun with different colors of rays. We like to add the radial repeat there. Next, let's look at the grid repeat. First, I'm going to group my rays and my sun, my center together. I'm going to drag over them just like this. Down here, I'm going to select this little button with two squares that we'll group them together. Now they're going to move together as one. I'll just decrease the size of it. I want to hold down my shortcuts so that it constrains it. There we go, and with that selected, I'm going to come across to my little flower again, and this time I'm going to tap on "Grid", and that has made it repeat in a grid. Here we can make the grid bigger, and this way as well, just like that. We can also change the spacing with these sliders, that's really useful, and this way as well, we can move these around over here. That moves them all. This one changes the spacing. We can also make it smaller like that. Now if we come up to the properties panel up here on the right, we have different options down here for how the grid repeats. Just now we have this one which is straight. But if we select the one next to it, it becomes a half drop, and for pattern designers out there like myself, that is pretty exciting. It's going to speed up the process of creating a half drop pattern a lot. I'm quite excited about that. We also have the option down here to flip rows. If you look at the colors, you'll see they'll flip. Can you see that? Like before, we have the option to manipulate the motif as well and they'll all change together. If I tap on one, double tap, and then I want to double tap again to access, to isolate the center, and I go into my gradient over here, and I want to maybe change this one, make that a pink, come out of that. You can see now that they have all changed. Now, if with this selected, I go across to my properties and they flip the rows, you will really see what it does. 6. Pen and Pencil: In this lesson, we're going to look at the pen and pencil tools which are used for drawing straight lines and shapes. They both have the same outcome, but they work in very different ways. Let's begin with the pen tool. The pen tool is the third one down on the left here. The pen tool takes a little bit of getting used to. But basically you drop points and a line forms to connect them, just like that. If we want a curved line, we can just hold and pool. You can see these handles appear. We can move it around and manipulate the curve and release when is where you want it to be. We can continue round. Once you've started a curve, is going to continue around when you place your next point. We can also change direction as well. It's going to go in the opposite way, if we like. We can also change these as we go. If I'm not happy with this point, I can just swing that curve back around, move my point up, pull my handle in, and get it exactly where I'd like it to be. Like you said, it does take a little bit of getting used to, but there are lots of skill share classes out there dedicated especially to the pen tool. If you're not already familiar with it, I highly suggest that you take a couple of those and spend some time getting to know it because it's really useful. At the moment I'm creating curves. But if I want to break the curve and get a sharp line again, I can tap on my anchor point here. At the moment it has two handles as you can see, but when I tap on it, that long handle disappeared. Now when I place another point is going to be a sharp corner like that. To connect the dots and make a shape, I can just tap here on my first anchor point and is going to make a shape for me which I can now fill. This at the moment is filled with white, but if I tap on it and you can see that it's now filled with black it's our closed shape. After we've closed the shape, we can still manipulate it. We can add points by tapping with the pen tool, just like that. We can move that around. We can remove points as well by holding down on a point and that's going to disappear. We can also use the direct selection tool, which is up here to manipulate them farther. Up here we have the selection tool. This is for moving and manipulating the whole shape. The direct selection tool is for the points. When I tap on that, you'll see that all of these circles have appeared, and all of the points as well you can see those clearly. These circles are for making curves. If I pull down on one of these, you can see that all of the points, all of the corners in the shape now become smoother and they become curved. I don't want that just now. But if I want just one of them not all of them to become a curve, I can do that very easily just by tapping on one point. Down here you can see that the curve tool has come up. I can tap on that and it's going to make it round. Next to it is the corner tool. I can tap on that, and it'll make a corner. I can also double-tap to do the same thing. I think I want these round, because I'm going for a heart shape. This one too. It's not doing anything. There we go. As you can see, how very quickly made an accurate shape. If you're following an under sketch is even easier to create really precise shapes. Now, let's look at the pencil tool. I'll delete this. The pencil tool is underneath the pen tool on the left here, and is the opposite to the pen tool. The pen tool we dropped point and it connected the points with a line. But this one we draw a line and the points appear just like that. You can see we can draw very organically using the Apple pencil which is really amazing. Right now, my smoothness of the line is set to quite high, but down here you can change that. It's on eight. If I bring it down to zero, you'll see that it's a much more wobbly line, and it also has much more points. I find it quite difficult to work with a shape when there are so many points. I'm going to bring my smoothing backup. You can also make angled shapes. If I just draw like this, it curve out. But if I pause for a second, it makes a sharp shape. Pause. Pause. Just like then. We can also draw perfectly straight lines as well by holding down the shortcut buttons. That held down, if I draw it's going to be a straight line. Again, it's very easy to draw precise shapes. Like before, it works exactly the same like with the pen tool. If we come over to the direct selection tool, we can move these points around. We have all the same options. We can make points into curves. It works in the same way. Let me just delete these for a second. I'll hit my selection tool and just drag over all of them and then hit the trashcan button. Again, I'm going to draw a dodgy heart. There we go. Sometimes you think you've joined up the ends, but they haven't actually joined up. If you want to join those, we have a handy tool for that. We can go to the direct selection tool up here. We can just select the two points that we want to join by dragging over them. You can also hold down the shortcut key, and that allows you to select multiple points. But right now we just want these two, so I'm going to get rid of those. With the two end points selected, you can see that this closed shape tool has become available to us. If we tap that, is going to close the shape for us. Now, it's the heart and it's looking a bit dodgy. Maybe I wanted to get rid of this one, so I can just hold down and I'll get rid of that point. I can move that one down. Also, if you hold down the secondary short cut, you can move a point, slide a point along the same curve. If I release it and I do that, it goes everywhere. Like that. It doesn't slide along the line. But whether it held down with the secondary short cut and you can slide it along the same curve. The last thing that I wanted to show you here is the cut tool, which is done here. Say I want to remove just one segment of this shape and just one part, then I can click on the cutting tool. This is they're still here, and just tap on the part that I want to remove. I didn't do it. Let's try again. There we go, and it's removed just that part for me. In the next lesson, we're going to practice using the pen and pencil tool a little bit more, and also look at the mirror repeat tool. 7. Bat: Mirror Reflect and Blob Brush: In this lesson, we're going to look at using the mirror tool. You can follow along by downloading my bat sketch from the class resources section or you can draw your own sketch, something utilizing symmetry, like a butterfly or a bat and you can use that to follow along as well. First let's start by importing our sketch. If you're using your own sketch, you can import it directly into Illustrator. Otherwise, we can go across here to the picture, select "Photos", and if you've already sent the class resources over, it should appear in your photos. I've got my sketch here. I'm going to go across to properties on the right and just lower the opacity by 36 percent and close the properties. You can rename the layer if you like by swiping left, tapping on the team. I'm going to call mine Sketch, hit "Okay". I'm going to lock this layer by tapping on the padlock here, just so it doesn't move, and I'm going to minimize this as well. I'm going to create a new layer for drawing on. We can tap on the plus to do that. I'm going to bring that one beneath the sketch layer just by holding it down, dragging, and dropping. You can rename this layer as well if you like. For now, I'll just close my layers and start drawing my bat. Because we are going to use the mirror tool, is going to reflect whatever I draw on the other side. We only need to draw half of the bat. I'm going to begin with this wing. I don't want a fill, so I'm just going to remove that, and I'll go down to my stroke here and choose a color. It'd be a nice pink. I want to use my pen tool. I'm just going to start dropping points, and you can use the pencil tool, of course, if you prefer. I just like using the pen tool. To break this handle off and to get a sharp corner, I'm going to tap here again, to get my sharp corner. Tap, hold for my curve. Tap to break it again, tap and hold for the curve. As you can see, we can draw very accurately using this. I'm just going to close my shape there. I'm going to use a different color for my lines here but I have this selected at the moment. To deselect it, I could go over to my selection tool, tap somewhere and go back to the pen tool, or I can just hold down the shortcut button and tap somewhere on the screen and that's going to deselect it while still having the pen tool selected. I'm just going to change my stroke color to something a little darker and then I'll start drawing these lines. I can tap here and up here. Again, I want to release these lines, so I'm just going to hold down my shortcut key and tap somewhere. I can start again with a new line here. Again, hold down the shortcut and tap and the last one, maybe I'll add a slight curve to that one and tap. Now I'm ready to reflect this on the other side. I'll come up to my selection tool, select all. Come over to this little flower icon thing over here and select "Mirror". You can see that's mirrored the wing now. It isn't exactly in the center of my bat, but we cannot change the symmetry line here. I'm just going to try and match it up with my sketch. There we are. That looks a bit right. These are related to each other, so like before, if I edit one-half is going to automatically edit the other half. If I want to edit this wing here, it needs to be selected. Use the direct selection tool, tap on my wing, and if I want to make this a fill, I can just tap here to swap my fill and stroke colors and is automatically done that on the other side. Now I can also move these points around as well. If I move one side, the other side moves as well. Maybe I want this over here. Like that. If I turn my sketch off, you can see it a little bit better. That's what we have now. Now we're going to do the body, and I'm going to use a slightly different method to reflect at this time. We're still only going to draw half. I'm going to go back to my pen tool and this is selected, so I'm just going to tap off using my shortcut and I'll start up here. I'll start just drawing half. I'm going to tap and drag and start drawing out this curve. Tap, curve, tap, curve, maybe around here. Just draw half of it in, and this time instead of using the reflect tool, I'm going to use a different method. I'm going to tap my selection tool and that will bring up my common actions bar and I'm going to hit this plus sign, which is duplicate. Now it's created a copy on top, and if I come over here to my right, there's an option to flip. I'm going to flip that over and then pull it across. If I hold down my shortcut key is going to constrain it so it's in a perfectly straight line, and I'll just match it up with my sketch. You can see that there's a slight gap here and that's intentional. Because unlike the wings, I want this to become one shape. I want to merge it together. Now I'll just zoom in so you can see better. Get my direct selection tool up, and I want to select these two points I just dragged over there. With these two points selected, I can now close the shape like we did before. There we go. I can maybe pull out these handles a little bit just to smooth out a bit. There we are, and I'll do the same for the bottom. I'll just select these two and close the shape, perfect. Now the reason why I did that is because I tried using the mirror tool here, and I wanted to join the shape so I expanded it, so that the two sides aren't related to each other anymore. But for some reason, even when it's expanded, it doesn't seem to work and so that's why I use this method instead. Now I'm ready to add some features and I'm going to begin with the eyes. I'm going to use the circle tool, and I'm going to make it the same color as the wings. I'll just come to my fill, tap my eye dropper tool and sample the wing color, and I'll remove my stroke by tapping here. Now I'm just going to zoom in a little bit and I'll just draw in one eye. I could duplicate it by tapping this button here, or I can use my secondary shortcut, which is to hold and drag the shortcut key. This is going to duplicate it as well, so it's very easy to duplicate things very quickly that way. Now for the mouth, I'm going to introduce the blob brush tool, which is one of my favorite tools and it's over here, it shares a spot with the pen tool. Basically it creates shapes. I'll show you here. If I draw within and then select it, you can see that it has points around it, and it's made a shape. With the pencil and pen tool, it draws in lines and we can create shapes by joining the lines, but this is already a shape. The stroke itself is a shape. Then we can go in and we can manipulate these as well like before. Let me just go ahead and delete those. We have a few settings down here for the blob brush tool. We have the size here and we have the smoothness, mine set to quite high, just know. Down here we also have our roundness. We can have a very round brush or we can have a more angled brush. We can change the angle here as well and also the pressure dynamics. The pressure dynamics affects how much the stroke changes depending on the pressure that you put down with your pencil. This can be very useful for a hand lettering if you're good at that, which I am not, but I'll show you what I mean. Let me just look at my pressure, yes. If we go over here with a little bit of pressure, I'll have a thin stroke, and when I push down, you can see the stroke is much thicker. If you're good at hand lettering, you can do it straight into Illustrator using the pencil and the blob brush tool, the Apple pencil, I should say not a pencil tool. I'll just delete that. I want quite a round brush for my mouth actually. Bring them roundness up and the size right down, and I can draw straight in here. Drawing some fangs, and I'm just going to freestyle my heart as well. Now I'm going to remove my sketch. I will just hide the visibility, and then I'm going to fill my body. With it selected, I only want the body, thank you, there we are. I'm just going to swap around to the fill and the stroke and there we are, we have our bat. 8. Choc. Bar: Shape Builder and Blend Modes: Now we're ready to start our final project, designing a chocolate bar. Let's begin by creating a new document. I'll come over here to custom size and just select the A4 preset and create file. Now we can import our sketch. You can either design your own chocolate bar and import your own sketch, or you can import mine that's available in the class resources section. To import that we can come across here to the picture icon, choose photos, and select it from there. It should already be in there if you sent it across from your computer beforehand. If you're importing your own sketch, you can take a photo directly into Illustrator or take a photo normally using the iPad camera and import it from photos like I just did. Here with our template just like before with the bat 21, let's go over to Properties and lower the opacity and then come up to our Layers. We can rename it if we like, by swiping, tapping on the team. I'll just name it sketch. "Okay." I'm just going to minimize that and create a new layer by hitting the plus and this one is to draw on and we want this drawing layer to be underneath. So I'm just going to hold and drag and release it down below and of course you can rename this layer as well if you like. I'm also going to lock my sketch layer by tapping on the padlock and I'll close my layers. Now we're going to create our basic shapes. I'll just zoom in over here a little and go to my shape tool. I have the square select it, which is what I want and my base layer is going to be the foil of the wrapper. I'm going to come over here and select a yellow, goldy color for the base and we're going to change this later so it doesn't really matter what we choose and I'm just going to get rid of the stroke for now and I'll just start drawing out my rectangle like that. I'll just match it up to my sketch and I can use this little blue circle here just to round off my corners because I don't want it to be too extreme just like that. Now for the next one, I think I want it to be a darker pink. I'm going to go with the strawberries and cream one first, something like that and go back to my square and I'm just going to go over the edge like this. I could match up the edges like that and I have my grid snap on, so it snaps it to the edge. Or I can use my Shape Builder tool. If I go over all of these, both of these and come over here to my Shape Builder tool, I can now define how these shapes cut a merge depending on how they overlap. You can see there's some options here, some automatic settings, but I don't really like to use those. These are the path finders that we had in the older Illustrator, but now you have a preview, but I don't really use these because the Shape Builder is much more accurate. If we tap on Shape Builder, we can now trim parts, so if I tap here, it's going to trim it. For example, if I wanted to merge two parts, I can just draw a line and I'm just going to tap on here to get rid of it and if I hit "Done," you can see that now this has become one part and I've removed the two edges. Now that wasn't what I wanted, so I'm going to undo, but I just wanted to show you how you can combine shapes and remove parts using the Shape Builder tool. I'll just double finger tap to get rid of that and just trim this edge off. I need to go back into it it seems and that's a really good way to trim things accurately. I'm going to use that process a couple more times with the other parts here. The next shape I want is going to be a little lighter because I want something contrasting on the label. Again, I'll just draw out my shape, one here and one here, that looks good. Then I'll just go and select them all, come back to my Shape Builder tool and then trim all the edges. Now I'm just going to do these thinner lines and so I'm going to go back to my shape tool, tap here and I want to sample the darker color again. There we go, and I'll just draw those out. Make sure it's accurate and then I'm going to duplicate this just by doing my secondary shortcut and pulling it down here so that they're exactly the same width and then I'll select them all, come over to my Shape Builder and trim the edges again. Next, we are going to add a shadow to the left here and we're going to do that in exactly the same way. I'll get my shape tool out and I'm just going to choose a darker color, dark gray and I'm going to draw a rectangle just across here, like that. Then, again, I'm just going to select them all with my selection tool. I'm going to select them all, come across and use the Shape Builder again just to trim the edge so it matches the edge of the shape exactly and then this time I'm going to go across to my properties. It's not selecting that for some reason. Come across to my Layers and I'll select it manually there. You can come in here and just tap if you're having trouble selecting over here. I want just this one selected and I'm going to go over to my properties and I'm just going to change the blend mode. Blend modes affect how shapes interact with each other, here I have normal on at the moment and I'm just going to turn off my sketch layer actually. It looks like this without the sketch layer. Back in my properties with normal, basically this color is just on top of the other color and they don't react to each other at all. But by changing the blend mode to something like multiply, you can see that now is shining through. I'm going to use overlay in this case and you can see that now we have a shadow forming and we can reduce the opacity a bit as well if it's strong. That looks better. I think I wanted to actually be a little bit narrower like that and we just need to trim the edges again because by moving it, you can see that I have this tiny little overlap here, which I don't want, so I'll just get rid of this little edge. It's not liking that, maybe I'll just do it manually. I'll select my direct selection tool, it didn't. Try again here, see if it works. Now it's doing it, "Done." Again, I want the same shadow on the other side, so I'm just going to select it, duplicate it, come over here to this little icon and I'm going to flip it. With it flipped, I'm going to move across and I'm going to hold down my shortcut to constrain it and just match it up to this side here. There we go. Now that's making it look a little bit more 3D. In the next video, we're going to look at some text. 9. Choc. Bar: Type, Copy and Paste: Now we're going to add type to our chocolate bar. I'm just going to start by creating another art board to create some more space. I'll tackle him the art board tool and just hit duplicate to create another one. Exactly the same and I'm going to continue working on this chocolate bar now. I'll just pinch to make it full screen. Now, for type, we want to go across to the type tool, which is above the art board tool and you can just tap and start typing. Well, we need to tap on the keyboard, actually, and then we can start typing. My company is called The Chocolate Factory. No, it's not. It's called The Chocolate Company. I'm going to write it in all caps and I think I want to change this font. If I come over to my properties, which just opened automatically when I tapped there, just move this over so we can see it, we can change the font over here. Right now, it's on Chalk Duster and we have loads and loads of fonts available to us, 18,000, I think I heard. Down here we have more fonts, which has ordered them and group them all into categories, which makes it much easier to search for. But right now, I know which font I want to use and I think is called Karmina. I'm just going to go into my text, up to my search bar here, and I'll type in Karmina. Get my keyboard up, and I think it's this one. Although I'm pretty sure it was bold. Let's go with semi bold. There we go. Maybe there isn't a bold. Now I want to change my spacing and I can do that here in my properties or I can do it across here just by tapping on this VA, that is my spacing. Here, I can adjust the spacing just by dragging the slider. If I tap out of it, I can also change the font size here. With the slider, which is very convenient. Of course, you can also do that over here as well, and we have all our usual other options here as well in the common actions bar. I want my type to be in a circle or my chocolate bar and to do that, I'm going to use the type on a path tool and I'll show you how that works. I'm just going to create some more text. I can just say hello. There we go. Now I'm going to create a line using my pencil tool. I'll just make that a stroke, like that, and then I'm going to select them both. Come over to the T icon here and choose type on path. Now, that type is on the path, it goes along the path. We can move it over a little bit on the path with this icon here, move it along. We can use this one here to reveal and conceal what's on the path, and we can also alter the path using the direct selection tool. If I want to change this curve a little, I can do that with the type on there. My other options for spacing are still available on here as well. I can space it out along that path if I like. We can do that with any shape or line. I'm going to do that with a circle over here. I'll just come over to my shape tool, I'll center this a bit more, and I want to scale from the center, so I'll use my secondary shortcut to create a shape like that. I'm just going to make it a stroke. There we go. I'm going to bring it into the center a bit bit more and then I'm going to select my text as well. I'm just holding down my shortcut button to do that and I'll come over to the T and slight type on path. There we are. Here, I want to rotate this round a little bit. I'm going to move this button here to get it how I like. I want this to complete the circle, so I'm going to change my spacing here so that it goes all the way round. You can also use the size to do that as well. But I want to use the spacing, and also, I think I want to make the size of my circle a little bit smaller. Shift that around a little so that this is a nice line with the and the chocolate. I'm just making the circle A little bit smaller. There we go. I want to center that. That's looking better. I also have my secondary text down here, and that is just a matter of typing. This one, this flavor, is strawberries and cream. I'll just type that in. Strawberries and cream. I'm going to make it a little bit smaller, I think, with the spacing, move it over here, and I'll change the font. What was my font again? Quimby Mayoral. Hopefully it'll come up with Quimby. I can't read it. I'm just going to come over to my text over in properties here and I'm going to type in Quimby and hopefully it'll come up. There it is, Quimby Mayoral. There we are. Close my properties and it's still looking a bit big, so I'll just scale that in and move it over. Of course you can change the color as well easily over here. I could go for more of a white color. I can't see that. Maybe go for a dark gray. I want these to be the same color, I think. Yeah. I'm just going to save that into my swatches by tapping in so that I can come over to this chocolate and then I can choose the same color. There we go. If I want to make these totally in line, say this is a little bit off, and this is a little bit off. I can select both of these and then come over to my aligning tools over here. I can choose the center one and that's going to center them to each other. Then I can move them both over and use my guides to make sure they're centered. Or I can select all of these and come over here and choose a line, and that will make sure everything centered, except I accidentally selected my little edge shadows too. I'll undo that. I could lock those. Over here, I could lock my little shadows. Where are they? If I slide down, I can see, there's one. Lock that. Where's the other? Lock that. Then I can go over them all again and do the align center and that will make sure everything is aligned nice and straight. One other thing I want to show you is a copy and paste function. If I type here, I'll just leave it as lorem ipsum, and say I want this to look the same as this one here, well, there isn't an obvious copy and paste, but I can come over here to my strawberries and cream. Where is it? I think it's under the scissors here. Yeah, I'll just close my properties so you can see it better. Under the scissors, it says copy appearance. Did that copy? Yes. Now, if I click on this text and come over to my scissors, I can press Paste Appearance and it will ask me, do I want to copy and paste the fill color, stroke color, and all of these, and if I say paste, It's going to make it the same as this. That's a really useful tool to be aware of. It's basically the eyedropper tool on the desktop version. In the next video, we're going to start drawing our motifs. 10. Choc. Bar: Drawing Motifs: In this lesson, I'm going to draw my motifs. I'll go back over to my sketch and zoom in to these icons here. I'm going to use a combination of the pen, pencil, and brush tool to do this. I'll start with my strawberry, and I'll select the pencil tool for that. I'll choose a kind of strawberry color. I'll probably change these colors later, so it doesn't matter too much. I want it to be a stroke, so that I can see what I'm doing. I'll just draw over my shape here. This smoothing is quite high, so it's changing the shape of it a little bit, but I'm just going to swap the stroke to fill and see how that looks. Yeah, that looks pretty good. I'm just going to leave it like that. Next, I'll do the stalk in the same way. I'm going to just come off that for a sec. Go back to my pencil, and choose a green color for my stock. I'm going to do the same thing to start drawing over it. I'm pausing at the corners, so that I get a sharp line. A sharp corner, I should say. I'm sorry, you can't see it so well because the sketch is on top. I'll turn off my sketch now so you can see what I've done. Now, it looks like that. Again, I'll just swap that over so we can see. It looks good to me, and the strawberry, yeah, it's cute. I'll probably add some dots to that. Let me just get a white or a light pink. I'm going to use the blob brush tool here. Make sure it's round. I want it quite small, and let's see how big this dot is. Perfect. There we go. That's super cute. I'll turn my sketch back on and we'll do the next one. The next one is my mint leaf for the mint and dark chocolate. Again, I'm going to use my pencil tool, select a darker colors, so I can see it. We'll use a green, since it's a leaf, and I'll just start up here, go round. It wasn't drawing, for some reason, pause and pause, and pause. I'm sorry if you can't see this very well. Maybe I should have used a darker color to demonstrate. In fact, I'm going to use a darker color, so you can see and track, and that's better. You can see, I'm pausing and is creating the sharp corners. On the desktop version, I would definitely have used the Pen tool for this, but being able to use the Apple pencil allows us to draw shapes very precisely, and it makes the pencil tool much easier to use. Again, I'm just going to manipulate a couple of these points, although, I did a pretty good job. Yep, that looks good. I'll change that to a green, and I'll just fill it. There we are. Now, I'm going to do the central part, and I'm going to use the blob brush for that. We'll tap off it for a second, come over to my blob brush. Round is good. Choose a darker color, and then, I want to make sure my pressure dynamics is on, so that this part is thinner and this part is thicker. So my pressure dynamics, I'm going to turn up a little bit more. There we go. Hopefully, I can do this in one smooth. I'm not sure how big this line is going to be, how thick. Let's turn off the sketch. It's a bit thick, isn't it? Let's turn that down, try again. I think that's much better this time. I'll just draw these thin parts in as well. It's a bit messy because I can't see what I was doing so well, but the beauty of this is that we can edit it. I'm going to get rid of this point, I don't need this. There we go, super quick clean up. It's looking a bit fat. I don't need that one. This guy is a bit fat too. There we go. That's looking a bit better now. If you are struggling to see what you're doing, you can always turn down the opacity of your sketch. If I have my sketch back on, I can just unlock the padlock, make sure I'm on the sketch layer, and turn the opacity down even further so it doesn't disturb what you're actually drawing because we can still see it. Right there, I can't see what I was drawing because the sketch was too dark. I'm just going to lock that again and come back down to this layer. Now, I'm going to do my honeycomb, and as you can see, it's made up of a series of hexagons. Now, for some reason, Illustrator on the iPad doesn't have a hexagon tool, unlike the desktop version. We're going to use a square instead, and I have a stroke here at the moment. Let's start by drawing a rectangle over one of the hexagons, and then I'm going to grab my Pen tool and just drop a point in around the center, and I'm going to pull it out. Another one on the other side. I want it to be as level as possible, so that they fit together. That looks pretty good. Maybe I just need to tweak this one a little. Bring it back to about here. Now, I'm just going to select it with my selection tool and change the thickness of the stroke a little bit. I'll just enlarge that so that it matches my under sketch a bit better. Now, I can duplicate them by just holding down my secondary shortcut tool and dragging them out. They seem to be fitting quite nicely, which I'm happy about. I'm looking more at my hexagons than the ones underneath now to try and line them up, and we can use the align tool to help us as well. I'll just select everything in the middle here, come over to my align tool and select Align Center, and that just straighten them out, and then, I'm going to do the same with these two; this one and this one. I'll just do a line at top. Now, those are straight. I can see this one isn't overlapping very well. For some reason, the selection tool sometimes doesn't work. I don't know if it's a bug, but when that happens, I just go to the direct selection tool, select it then go back to the selection tool, and that seems to work. There we go, that's a bit better. I'm just going to turn off this sketch so that I can see the alignment a little bit better. That's looking pretty good to me. Now, I'm just going to select them all and make it more of a honeycomb color, orangey yellow, just like that, and I'll group them over here as well by clicking on this little square icon. I'll group my other ones, and I'll move them over here. I can put my strawberry in here now, and I'll bring my mint and by honeycomb over too. That hasn't grouped. See, the selection tool is working fine now. I don't know why it doesn't work sometimes. Now, I'm going to make a few tweaks to the layout, and then in the next video, we're going to start texturing. 11. Choc. Bar: Texture and Clipping Masks: Now it's time to add some texture to our designs and we can just use household objects to do this. I am going to use some tin foil for the file part of our wrapper. I'm going to use some textured watercolor paper for the paper part of our chocolate bar. Now we can just take a photo using our iPad directly into Illustrator. Or what I prefer to do is take a photo using the normal camera app on the iPad. We can just take a photo, and we can open it up in photos in the iPad. Then we can edit it a little bit because sometimes it can be a little bit dark. Once we've done that, we can open it up in Illustrator and add it as a texture. I've opened my photo of my tin foil in iPhoto, and I'm just going to edit it slightly. In the top-right, I'm going to hit the edit button. Here I'll just change the orientation of it, so that's landscape. I'm just going to go up here to this little dial icon to make some other adjustments. The exposure, here on the right, I'm going to bring up a little. The brilliance just a little, highlights, basically I'm messing with these dials. Shadows, just to make it look good. Don't need to change that much. Contrast a little. The brightness just a little bit. The main one that I wanted to change here was the saturation because you can see here that there's a little bit of pink reflected into here. I just want to get rid of the saturation completely. There we go. You can see that that's changed it quite a lot and I'll hit done. I'll just go back to my photos and do the same with my piece of paper. Backup here to edit, going to quickly rotate it again and go back up to this dial to edit it. I want to increase exposure and make it brighter. Skin brilliance highlights. I actually want to bring down the highlights a little bit. You can see the texture a bit more. I don't know if this is showing up on video because it's actually very subtle. Shadows as well. The contrast, Yes, I would like contrast, brightness, I can bring that up a little. Saturation again, I'm going to bring right down and it'll hit done. Now I'm just going to hop back over into Illustrator. Here I can import my texture by going across to the photo tool, tapping photos, and selecting my texture. We can scale the texture and move it around as well. I think I want to use this part here. I'm just going to match it up to my chocolate bar, like that. Then I want to make it fit exactly. To do that, I'm going to make a clipping mask. To do that, I need to select my gold shape. Come over to my layers and go all the way down to select the gold shape here. I'm going to duplicate it by tapping on the plus. Then I'm going to bring the foil all the way down and to tap on my foil and bring it all the way down to my layers. It's just underneath this gold shape here. Now I'm going to drag this to underneath, like that. With the gold and the foil selected. I'll hold them a shortcut key to select them both across here in my layers. With both of these selected, I'm going to go across here to the icon with the four dots and select make clipping mask. You can see that now the file is clipped to this shape. I'm just going to come across to properties. I'm going to change the blend mode. It's so normal at the moment. I'm going to change it to multiply. But you might want to try a few others to see if you like another one better. I'm just going to lower the opacity as well. That is not quite so strong. There we go. That looks pretty good, quite subtle. Finally, I think I'm going to add a little bit of a gradient to the gold just to add a little bit more depth. Go back down to this original gold rectangle down here in my layers. I'll hit the color button here and come over to gradient. I'm just going to choose the one on the left here. I think I'm going to move the points so that I have one up here in the top right and one down here. I'm going to tap on the one and the top and make it a lighter color, like that. The one in the bottom, is slightly darker. I don't want to go too crazy here. I might move my slider there a little. Yes, that looks quite good. I'm just going to tap off that. Now we're going to do the same with the paper, we'll come across here to our photos and select the paper. I think I want to use this side here. In fact, it's in a pretty good position. Let's make it a bit smaller. This time I wanted to go over all of this pink over the dark pink. I'm going to do the same process again. I'll come up to my layers, find my pink one. It's this one here. I'm going to duplicate it. Then I'm going to bring my paper down. I'll just tap and drag down and bring it to under that one. I'm going to select them both by holding my shortcut button. Oh, I didn't put it on top. Let's de-select for a second. I need to move this on top. There we go. Now I'm going to select them both, come across here to the icon with the four dots and hit make clipping mask. There we are. Again, we'll go across here to the properties and change the blend mode, go to multiply again and lower it. This time I wanted it to clip to that size, but actually I want it to affect these other parts as well. I'm going to go across to my layers and I'm going to bring it up now. I'm going to just grab this and move it up so that this time is on top. There we go, no effects at all. I can go back up to my adjustments. I want to lower it quite a bit. Maybe overlay is better this time. Yes. The multiply was looking a bit dark. This time I'm going with overlay and I can keep the original colors a little bit better. You can see now that my shadows are looking a bit dark. So I can go and adjust that as well. 12. Choc. Bar: Finishing Touches and Duplicates: In this video, I'm going to add some finishing touches, tweak the colors and create duplicates from my other flavors. The first thing I'm going to do is I want to match this pink to my strawberry. I'll come over into my layers and go down to this purple-y pink here. Go across to my Fill, choose the Eyedropper tool, and move this over to the strawberry. There we go. That's looking much nicer. You can see that there are still slightly different colors, and, I think, that's because the texture isn't covering the strawberry. I'm going to move the texture to the top, so they also covers the strawberry. The texture group is here. It says Clip Group, and it's right under the strawberry. I want to move this up. One way of doing this is just to drag it up. But another way is from the common actions bar. This one here, this icon, if you tap on that, it says drag to change stacking order. I can just move this up, and it changes the stacking order. You can see when I click off, that will have moved. Now it's up here. Now I'm thinking the texture looks a little bit strong. I'm going to go back up to the properties. I'll make sure that I've selected. I think I'm going to lower that. Is that 82? That's pretty high. That is much better. It has a very slight texture to it, and the colors are looking much nicer. I'm just looking at the shadows here. I think they look okay, actually. I'm going to leave them like that. Next, I want to add a few little dots across this dark pink part to match the strawberry as well. To do that, I'm just going to go across to my Blob Brush tool. Select a very light pink and just start dropping in dots. There we go. That looks cute. Maybe one more. I don't want to go too crazy. See, those are looking a bit much. I'm going to get rid of that one. That's better. Now, I think we're ready to create our duplicates. The first thing I'm going to do is group this. I'm going to select them all and then tap this button here to group. It looks like I've selected something over here as well, grouped something over here. But it's just a file that is got, is just the texture. We can't see it, but it's still there. Now I'm just going to make a duplicate and drag it over and make another duplicate and drag that over as well. I'm just going to rename these groups just so that we don't get confused. This one, if we just slide and tap the T to rename, is going to be my honeycomb. This one is going to be my mint. My last one, if I just swipe over, tap the T, is my strawberry. That's going to help us keep organized. We also have these other loose items here, and that is this one over here. I'm just going to get rid of that completely because we don't need it anymore. There we go. That is looking much neater. We have our three items here, all in groups. We have our two icons at the top as well. We have these three laid out, so we might as well align them. I'll just select them all, get my Align tool out. I'm just going to hit "Distribute" so they distribute evenly. There we go. I'll hit the Align bottom as well to make sure they're aligned. That is looking good. I'm going to start with my mint group over here. I'll find the group across in the Layers, press the arrow to access the group, find my strawberry, and just delete that. Now I'm going to bring my leaf in here, and as you can see, it's underneath. I'm going to locate it right down at the bottom and drag it up. I want to make sure that it's underneath the texture. I'll pop that somewhere in the middle around there. Now I want to change these colors. First, in order to eyedrop accurately, which is what I want to do. I'm just going to hide the visibility of my texture. If I eyedrop just now with the texture on is going to pick up this color. Then it's going to apply another layer of texture on top. The color is going to look faded. I'm just going to disable that for now. Here we go. I will disable my texture. Then I'm going to go down to the purple-y pink color here. I'm just going to tap on the Fill, tap on the Eyedropper and sample my green. That is looking bright. I'm just going to lower it down a little. You'll see how that looks with the group on actually with the texture on. That looks pretty good. Hide my thing again, hide my texture. Now I'm going to sample my leaf, so it matches that. I'm just tapping on my leaf group and tapping on the arrow to access the group. Now I've selected just the body of the leaf, and I'll select my Fill, my Eyedropper, and I want to select a darker green now. Those are going to match. Now I also want these two lines here to also be that color. I'm just going to select both of those while holding down my shortcut key. I'll come across here again to my fill. I'm going to eyedrop that same green so that now they're all very cohesive. That's looking pretty good. While we're here, I also want to change the color of the hat over here of this strawberry so that it matches this screen. I'm just going to close this group for a moment, so I can see where I am. Come over to my strawberry group and find the strawberry. Here's the strawberry group down here. I'll just open that group. Tap on its hat. Again, I'm going to eyedrop that same green and see how it looks. Just now, they look like different colors, but I'm just going to turn my texture back on for a moment on this one. You can see now they match. Now I'm just going to change this pink part here to more green color so that it matches the green of the label a little bit better. Here again, I'm just going to turn off my texture for a second while I eyedrop. I'm going to select this strip. Hold down my shortcut key and this strip here, this square here. Tap on my Fill. Grab my Eyedropper. I'm going to make it this green to start with, and then I'm just going to lighten it. Maybe turn almost white. That looks good. Now the last thing I'm going to do here, or the second last thing I'm going to do here, is I'm going to change the dots to match this color here. I've noticed also that my texture is underneath the dots, so I'm just going to move my texture to the top of the group there. Now I'm just going to select all of my dots just by holding the shortcut key and tapping on all of them. There may be a way to select all of them, but I'm not aware of that at the moment. I'm just going to tap on the fill, and I have the dark color here saved as a swatch. I'm going to tap on that. Now it looks like the dark chocolate of the mint-dark chocolate. Now I'm going to pop my texture back on, and I'll change the name here of the chocolate bar. Tap on it. This one is mint and dark chocolate. There we go. Just make sure it's nice and aligned. Now I'm going to go ahead and finish off my last one, and I'll meet you after that. Here are my final designs. I made a couple of tweaks here and there as well. I aligned this text in here. I changed the position of the foils so that they're all a little bit different, and I lightened up this pale pink part of the wrapper to match the lightness of the others as well. I'm going to call it done. 13. Export: Now we've finished our design, we're ready to export. Now is the time to think about the final outcome. Is this for print or is it for web? Are you going to send it to a client? Think about what size you'd like your final piece to be and make your artboard that size. First, I'm just going to get rid of all my extra bits that I don't need anymore. I'll come over to my layers, swipe left on my sketch and delete that. I'm going to come to my artboard tool and delete this artboard as well. Now, with this artboard selected, I'm going to come over to Properties and change the size. Mine is for web, so I'm going to make it 1200 by 900 pixels. We don't want it too big for web. Also, if you want to constrain your proportions, you can tap on the padlock here and it's going to do that. I'll just close that. If you're unsure what size to make your document, I have a class called resolution explained that's really useful for determining how big you want your pieces to be. Now, we want to make our art fit the artboard. I'll come up to my selection tool, select my artwork, hold down my shortcut to constrain it, and just fill out the page. Something like that. Now, we're ready to export. To do that, we go up to this little square with an arrow at the top. We have the option to Quick Export as a PNG, or we can tap on this arrow for more options. Here we have a few formats. We have AI or PSD, if you'd like to continue editing. PDF is probably good for print and PNG is good for web. I'm just going to select PNG because mine is for the web and hit "Export". When I do that, I need to choose where I want it to go and you choose a destination. Here I can AirDrop it to my computer, email it. I could send it to my OneDrive that I have connected, or I can save it to my iPad, which is what I'm going to do. I'm just going to hit "Save Image". Now it's in my iPhotos. That's how we export. 14. Thank you: Thank you so much for taking my class and I'm really excited to see your designs.
