Buckle up, and let’s get started! Truth be told, I was and probably still am deeply fond of rock music. From the crazy riffs of Pantera to the grungy sounds of Pearl Jam and Nirvana, this culture has always held a big influence over my growing-up years and probably that’s why I still come back to it time and time again. Since I am sure that most of you out there have at least one rock song close to your heart, I decided it would be nice to create a rock-inspired card that could be used for personal projects. 1. Setting Up Our Document Since I hope you already have Illustrator up and rocking, let’s start by creating a New Document by either pressing Control-N or by going to File > New . Once the popup windows shows up, adjust the document’s settings as follows: Number of Artboards : 1 Width : 562 px Height : 638 px Units : Pixels And from the Advanced tab: Color Mode : RGB Raster Effects : High (300 ppi) Align New Objects to Pixel Grid : checked 2.

There’s a couple of methods for creating complex circular patterns in Adobe Illustrator. One technique uses pattern brushes, but it involves designing multiple patterns that seamlessly repeat, which can be a difficult task in itself. Alternatively, you can make use of Illustrator’s symbol feature to create a pseudo kaleidoscope effect where a segment of your design is duplicated around a centre point to form a mirrored effect. Follow my step by step Illustrator tutorial to learn how to create a vector mandala pattern of your own. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can build extremely detailed circular patterns with this process. This is the kind …

Tutorial Assets Fabric Texture Rust Texture Wall Texture 1 Wall Texture 2 1. Sketch the Idea Step 1 This is a very important part. Even though you may think you know what you want to draw, you can never know if it’s the best you can do. Why not find out now, when there’s nothing to lose?
