Vector Yashica using Opacity mask + Mesh tool

Vector Yashica using Opacity mask + Mesh tool - student project

Hello Guys and thanks for sharing this Tips!

Opacity Masks in illustrator are a kind of obscure subject, most people do not know about the function or how to use it (I have had a hard time learning about it). I use the opacity mask function in association with the mesh tool to create specific areas of transparency. I will leave here my "Yashica" completely made in vector where I have used this technique to create a more realistic effect!

The halftone effect to create texture, I must confess that, most of the times, I use the Photoshop technique that I also have learned from you and that I have used in the second illustration.
