Illustrator: Backgrounds

Hi Helen, more useful techniques, many thanks.

Here's my work-alongs.

1: Textured, radial sunburst with a comic-style burst I made in Illustrator and my hand-drawn vectorised camera.


2: Halftone and gradient mixes – this is going to have some interesting uses.


3: Pattern and glow – useful to know how to create patterns quickly on the go. This is one of our Roborovski hamsters with full cheek pouches hahaha!


4: Wavy lines and bubble scatter brush – loved seeing this background come together and the colour change layer is another revelation. Butterflies were cut out for another project using public domain illustrations from Internet Archive Book Images on Flickr.
