This tutorial will introduce you to a wide range of advanced Adobe Illustrator tools through creating a gloomy, jail wall text art effect. I’ll be using raster textures to create a pattern and texturing for our brick wall and barbed wire. So let’s get started! Step 1 Start by creating a new blank document by opening Adobe Illustrator and going to File > New. Set the page size (in this example I set it as 1000 x 600 pixels) give it a name and click OK. Step 2 Now would be a good time to change our background color to black. Create New Layer by clicking the New Layer button at the bottom of the Layers panel. If you can’t see the Layers panel, go to Window > Layers (F7) to reopen it. Place the new layer behind the main layer and name it “Background” by double clicking it. Select the Rectangle Tool (M) and draw a box that covers your whole canvas. Change its fill to black and lock the layer. Choose your font by selecting the Type Tool (T) from the left toolbar and clicking somewhere on your canvas. Type “Vector”, or other chosen word and change the font and size of…

Set its color at R=255 G=222 B=23, use the “Script MT Bold” font with the size set at 400pt then go to Type > Create Outlines (Shift + Control + O).

In today’s tutorial, we’ll look at how I started from a pencil sketch to then create an editorial illustration in Adobe Illustrator. I’ll show you how I created some custom Art Brushes to add shading and detailing. Step 1 We start with a basic sketch. At this stage we only take care to define the contours of the figures, without stopping to consider the lights or shadows. Step 2 We prepare the brushes we’re going to work with in the illustration. These brushes can create effects of ink, pen, engraving and other textures. Start from a circle, then using the Convert Anchor Point Tool (Shift + C) sharpen some of the anchors in corners. Step 3 We drag each of the figures resulting to the Brushes panel. In the popup window we select the option “Art Brush” Step 4 In the pop-up panel we use the scale to 10% in width, choose the option “Stretch to Fit Stroke Length”. In Colorization we choose the Method “Hue Shift”, so the strokes we make will have the color fill we choose. Step 5 Now, we have brushes to make “ink” effects. We can create brushes of shapes and thickness as we want by adjusting the settings in the …
