What You’ll Be Creating A glass of cold, fresh milk and a crispy cookie with chocolate chip—many of us have loved this yummy snack since childhood! Let’s refresh these sweet memories and create a realistic glass of milk and a textured oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips, using Adobe Illustrator’s basic shapes, Distort and Transform effects, and gradients to achieve a glossy and three-dimensional look. Let’s start! 1. Make a Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookie Step 1 Start by making a 250 x 250 px circle, using the Ellipse Tool (L) and holding down the Shift key to make the shape even. Fill it with sandy-yellow color and go to Effect > Distort and Transform > Roughen . Set the Size value to 1% , Relative . And set the Detail value to 5 , selecting Smooth Points. Click OK to make the edge of our circle bumpy. Step 2 Go to Object > Expand Appearance to apply the effect, and use the Warp Tool (Shift-R) to make the edges even rougher in some places. Step 3 Let’s apply a radial gradient to our cookie, placing the lightest color right in the center of the shape and making the edges dark brown, adding dimension. Step 4 Let’s make the surface of the cookie more textured, by forming the dimples. Use the Ellipse Tool (L) to make a group of circles, …
What You’ll Be Creating Today we’ll draw a cute pony. It may look very simple, but it will be based on a realistic horse —just in less advanced form. You’ll learn how to build a “base” for a drawing and how to measure with lines. You just need: a pencil (the softer, the better) two sheets of paper (it can be a cheap copy paper) a ball-point pen or a marker (something that makes dark lines) You don’t need an eraser! 1. Draw the Body Step 1 Take one sheet of paper. Imagine an oval and sketch it very lightly with your pencil. Don’t draw it all with one line. Try to use short lines with gaps. This will be the chest Step 2 Divide the oval into halves. If you don’t know how, here’s a way: Find the center of the oval and mark it with a dot. Then draw one dot on the right and one on the left. Join them with a line to divide the oval into halves. Step 3 Draw a circle next to the oval. Make it a bit smaller. This is the bum of our pony Step 4 Now join up both shapes with curved lines. The body is finished! This is the back and the belly 2. Draw the Legs Step 1 First draw two lines to find the right place for the legs. The front one (here: left) should be in the front half of the chest-oval. The back one should be placed in the back half of the bum-circle. These lines don’t need to be super straight Step 2 Mark the places where both lines touch the body (1) and the ground (2). Can you see a line between them? Mark the middle of it. Notice that the right line is …

What You’ll Be Creating Drawing, at its most basic level, is intuitive to us. Even young children know how to transfer the image in their head into a set of pencil strokes, even though they may not resemble anything to others. When we grow up, we learn more about the world around us, and we learn how to depict it more accurately with lines. Lines seem to be almost interchangeable with drawing, but if you look carefully, you won’t find them anywhere in the real world. It’s us who pack the real objects into tight-fitting wrapping, because wrapping is all we can draw. Wrapping, the lines, is an approximation of reality, and, as it is with approximations, there may be many of them describing the same thing. Until you understand it, you’re forced to draw flatly, …

We’ll start with the base, which is a classic plain donut, and then we’ll use this one to create the four variations: chocolate sprinkles, icing with chocolate chips, plain sugar, and strawberry frosted.
