Hey, guys! I’m Ralph and welcome to pattern lab London in this week’s episode, so season 1 episode 4 I’m going to show you how to transform your hand. Drawn illustrations or fashion illustrations into beautiful precision. Let’s say digital fashion illustrations in Adobe Illustrator, quite in-depth tutorial but essentially should give you all the Select basics when it comes to fashion design or fashion illustration in Adobe Illustrator. So as you can see here, This is essentially the illustrations that we’ve created and they’re basically additional iterations built from our existing hand-drawn illustrations using fashion templates, so Ill. Show you how to do this. I’m also at the very end or bonus. I’m going to show you also. How to then add a little bit of color and also a little bit of print into your designs. Essentially, these prints and these designs are the colors and the print are not part of this project. Francesca’s robe. But it’s just more like a little bit of tutorial to give you an idea basically. But next week we’re going to be looking at print design using flowers and we’ll start adding the the prints that we kind of come up with into the illustration. So you have a much better idea of what actually creating anyway. You wanna stop waffling and yeah? I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Okay, so let’s get started so you can see in front of me. I’ve already kind of created. Let’s say one of my fashion illustrations in Adobe Illustrator, So I’ve taken picked one of them from the very money that I created in season 1 Episode 3 and obviously digitized it in Dobie Gillis writer and the reason why I’m sharing this festival so I won’t explain a little bit of about layering when it comes to illustrator. So over here on the right hand side, you can see our layers palette. Now if you’re not familiar with Adobe Illustrator, then you’ll probably need to have a look at one of our other tutorials, which is basically, it’s basically introduction to Adobe Illustrator. Oh, it’s called or is it pattern cutting in Adobe Illustrator or something similar? Anyway, it’ll show you how to there’s a link to in this blog post, but I’ll show you how to set up your Adobe Illustrator console of Super Diezel icons on the left here and also the icons on the right here. And these are all the ones that you need to actually do a pattern cutting and Dobey Illustrator and also fashion design just makes it a little bit simpler and cleaner to work with. Anyway, lets. Go back to what I was saying. Which is layering, so here is an existing illustration that I’ve created. We just go to a window. If you can’t see layers on the right hand side, you just go -. Sorry, let’s go to window and then layers, and they’ll bring up the layer palette as you can see here. We’ve got four different layers. You’ve got the model and let me just remove that. We’ve got the body. In fact, let’s go the opposite way around Just so it’s easy to see, so we’ve got the outline. This is the thick, heavy black lines that kind of give the shape or the kind of three-dimensional feel to the actual garment. We have the details which the trims the pockets, the buttons, the fastenings. We have the body as well now. The body is important. This is essentially the colour. So if we just simply click on this, this is how we would actually color our garment, so let’s just change that to. B, let’s say I don’t know like a pink. It’s pretty horrific pink. Still, so that’s basically the body. So when we actually build up our layers, you can see that the colors actually still there, okay. This is how we add color to our to illustration by using the body, so let’s just remove that, and obviously we have the model and the model is the areas that have actually only show up. So if we actually put our body back in these, are the parts of model would actually show on the illustration is complete. And I’m going to show you how to create all four of these layers with your illustration. Okay, so first of all. I’ve got a few more illustrations here as you can see, let’s go to our layers. Let’s just remove the outline details body, and also we have the model. Okay, so it’s a very, it’s a very methodical way of doing the illustrations and it works. Well, yeah, same again there. We go okay, so what? I’ve done is I simply taken a scan. I’ve scanned to my one of the many illustrations are created in season 1 episode 3 I scanned it and taking it into Adobe Illustrator. And this is it So now what we to do is? I’m going to start to build up, Which is open up in Tobias. Right now! Understand a lot to create in my layers so first of all, let’s go to window and then get the layer’s palette. It should be here as well and let’s just simply create a new layer. Which is this little icon here? It’s going to click. Click that three times create three or sorry, Four independent layers. Now you can see, were on layer one on the moment, cuz this little arrow icon here. So it’s going to click on layer 1 I’m going to rename it, so I’m double click there. I’m gonna go model Layer 2 we’re gonna say body layer 3 oops, details layer 4 outline. It’s gonna be in that order. Some models at the bottom then body then details an outline. You can also move these around just by simply dragging, you see, but let’s just have the outline at the top, then details their bodies, their model. Okay, so first of all we’re gonna do is we’re about the model layer just now so. I’m just going to simply lock that, and you can lock these as well to print you from editing them, so let’s go to lock the model layer and we go to my body layer, so I’m gonna click. You have to actually Click on the layer to actually work on it. See for us to click the model layer because it’s locked. You’ll see that I can’t actually do anything to that layer, So she’s gone the body. I see now I can actually do things. OK, so it’s on the body layer and what we do is as I mentioned before. The body layer is essentially the thing that holds the color, it is just the outline of your. Let’s see illustration. It’s the outline illustration, which basically means that we can add a filter it. If we said choose, OK, so let’s go to the body and let’s start drawing. So what would what essentially would your illustration where would you? Ella, straight in the whole color. Well, essentially, it would be here to here and let me just take you through a little bit about this whole pen tool as well. So let’s go to the pen tool just up here. I’m just gonna simply click on a point. Click on another point, and then if you click and hold and drag, you can create curved lines so essentially point to point straight line and then point point click and then drag to create a nice, curved line lets. Go down to this point here down to this point to this point at the moment, we have a white fill with no line color, so I’m simply just going to pick a line color, which is black and we do that simply just by double clicking on this. This is the line and this is the fill. Let’s go to black click. OK, and then I’m just going to click on the fill and then remove so we now we just have a black outline and no fill. Okay, so next, let’s go down, so I’m just going around the entire outline of my garment, essentially. Okay, where it’s going to actually hold color. So let’s go to here as well and also if you click on that point, so for example, you see how we if I click here? It still occurred line. Well, essentially, if I click on that point, it’ll turn it back to a straight point, which is really helpful for us, so I’m just going to keep tracing this outline. I’m gonna start working quickly because I want to be the tutorial up a little bit there. We go just keep creating these lovely, curved lines. Click curve, click to get a straight point and then curve and it’s click to get us a point. Let’s go up to the thigh there. Let’s go down to the base here. Also, some interesting tips as well, also some helpful navigation items. If you hold down the space key on your keyboard, you’ll see you get a little hand. And if you click and drag, it allows you to move around the page effortlessly without actually having to use these side. Scrolls, which can be really tricky Also. If you hold the command or sorry control on a PC command on a Mac Command + zooms in and – zooms out. OK, so you can zoom in just by holding down command -. Um, + select. Zoom out a little bit. Article II, keep drawing this body. Okay, let’s take it up a little bit. It’s full of shape of this lovely, and this will take a little bit of practice. These curves that it’s not amazingly easy, but you’ll get the hang of it eventually, and once you do essentially, it’s probably one of the hardest things in Illustrator to get the hang of so once you’ve nailed it. You’ve nailed it and go back. Get a pencil on that point. Then let’s just create a line. Click on that point. It’s create a nice, smooth curve there. Let’s create a nice, smooth curve as well. The more realistic you can make your garment look. Obviously the better. Your illustration is gonna be okay, and by what I mean by that is simply adding in these lovely little swirls knots. We’ll, sorry, these lovely curves, So instead of having like straight edges, you see how here this is very straight, whereas here we almost like, follow the shape of the body, which is lovely so. I’m do the same to the opposite side here. So if you want to curve this now, you’ve already drawn this line. Go to your anchor point tool, which is here and if it’s not present, you can always click on the three buttons, and then in here, you’ll find Anchor Point tool and you can simply click to add it or you can click and drag, okay, and then we do the add. Anchor Point tool. We just simply go to one end of the point. Click and drag so again. Click on that click on that point and drag. Hold there. We go also, if you can get your small section tool, you can get this little point here, and you can nudge it with your arrows on your keyboard. Okay, so you can nudge those around as well, but only when you select the actual point, so a small selection tool, which is the white one, not the black one, give you a small section point and just click on that end point there or this one, and then you can just nudge it with your arrow keys to move it around. Okay, so let’s finish this off. Let’s go to the pen tool, and you see, and that allows me to join or add to that line where you get that into the star. You have, it’ll add. What a little line. Click on that when you go down to our waist line, click up to here and don’t worry If it changes the curvature of that line, we can always go back into our Anchor Point tool and just change that back to a nice, sloping curve. I’m gonna create a nice curve here as well just to make it pretty. Okay, so let’s have a look that is essentially the body of our garment. That is what it’s going to contain the color, so let’s just there we go disgusting purpley mouth, color or lilac, so that is what it’s going to hold our color, so we can add our details and our outline, all the other elements that go into this dress on top of that layer. Okay, so this is the most fundamental that’s important layer and also lets. Just change that line width, so I’m creating my big section tool. Click on our little body here, go to the line, source stroke tool. You can go window and then stroke to find it lets. Just pull that down to about. Nah, 25 We don’t want to be too bold. It’s just present if that makes sense. Okay, so next when it is, let’s go to our layers, and we’re going to basically lock that off because that one’s complete. Let’s go to our details next. Okay, so I’m just unlock that I’m gonna go to details and let’s just zoom in. And now the details are essentially this band. Here, this band, the buttons, possibly the pockets and any other little bits and pieces that should come out, lie on top. So for example, there’s a nice little crease here because we have some volume in the bottom the dress. So these are details that were gonna add on top, so we’re not working on the body on model layer we’re now working on top of this, so essentially, all the details will sit on top of these layers in order, so the models at the bottom, then the body, then the details and then finally the outline. This is important, Okay, So I’m gonna draw my details, so I’ll do is I just going to simply trace over my existing line? Here there. We go, let’s make this a little bit bolder, so we can actually see we’re doing. Let’s make it one point. Let’s make it one point. Five point five. Let’s click, and it’s gonna trace. Follow the lines out here there. We go try and trace that as well, okay. Five, let’s do the other side there. We go take that across up lovely. I’m trying to make those lines parallel, Okay, cuz It’s almost like a band that would be like 5cm and I’d be 5 cm at the bottom as well. Okay, let’s can’t carry on, lets. Do this one here. Okay, you see how these are a little bit? Cut, it’s a little bit of a messy oh! I’m doing some skills. Simply pull that one up. Pull this one up as well to meet that waistline. Same with this one, we can just move that other way. Pull it up. And this is using the small selection tool, not the big section tool with a small section tool, so click on that point and drag it to where. I want it to be same with this one. Click and drag quantity. The body’s a little bit messed up here as well, so lets. Just go to sorry. Excuse me, let’s just go to our layers here. Let’s unlock the body. It’s a small selection tool. Click and move that up. Just keep things nice and neat as you go and here as well. Maybe we want to change this around a little bit. Make it a bit neater. Yeah, there we go, lets. Just change it. You can always, you know, mess around. Add change things as you go along. Okay, so let’s lock the body layer. Go back to our details later because I want to keep adding more details and let’s just simply zoom in this Creighton button. So I’m gonna go to my ellipse tool. I’m gonna hold down some of the click and drag to create an ellipse, but you see, we can make it any size, so essentially, let’s just hold down the shift key. If you hold down the shift key, it locks it to constrain those details all those proportions, so it’s always gonna be the same. It’s always going to be a proportionate circle. There we go, lets. Just get the big section tool. Click and the big section tool essentially selects the whole object, whereas the small selection tool selects the individual elements of that object. Okay, so two important things to think about. I want to do is Im? Just gonna go edit. Copy edit paste notes. Drag that in what you can also do is simply click on the big section tool. I’m gonna hold down the Alt key or option key on my keyboard. I’m gonna move that up and as you can see, just move that I’ve ever so slightly about there. And if I hit Ctrl D, it simply duplicates control DDDDDD duplicates My existing movement. Okay, so obviously, these buttons lets. Just remove this top one. It’s a little bit unnecessary. What we’re gonna do is we’re going to align these buttons. So they fit perfectly and they evenly distributed so first of all my big selection tool. I’m gonna click and drag that up to where it kind of should be. I’m then gonna get a big section tool. I’m gonna keep that selected. I’m gonna hold down the shift key on my keyboard and a click and drag over the rest of those circle elements and note. I haven’t got anything else included in my selection and then going to go up here to my align or distribute, and I’m gonna vertically distribute those to the center and there you go, you see how they’re all now evenly spread and let’s also keep them in a straight line. Perfect looking nice, okay, Also, this one might be a little bit too low. So maybe we can move this button up. Let’s go to the big selection tool. Click on this, lets. Just nudge it up a little bit. Maybe that much click and drag over all of these. Hold down the shift key and just click on these as well to add them to your selection and then let’s just vertical distribute and that didn’t. We do much, but anyway, you get the point, OK? So next let’s work on our pockets, Okay, so pockets. I’m gonna be like this lovely. We can also move this point out a little bit if we want to keep that line a little bit more vertical, same with this one click. And you see how with this pocket. I have you see? I’ve got a little nick there. That kind of almost makes it feel a bit more three-dimensional if I was just to draw on the side of the dress and it wouldn’t really feel that three-dimensional like it’s actually something it would just feel like something that’s kind of been stapled on to the dress. It’s same with this side as well. Okay, so we’ve done our pockets. That’s how what else we used to do. Okay, let’s also draw in these lines. So it’s more selection. Sorry, pen tool. Let’s just click and drag quite a nice, sweeping curve. Same with this one here that might be an amazing curve from the other side there. That’s alright, you’re saving that one, not great that there we go spit it better. You can play around with these. Obviously it’s up to you. Yeah, ok. I’m not enjoying this at all, but still you get the point, lets. Just do something like that. Yeah, okay, so we’re gonna also work into these pockets. Sorry since the pockets not see these old waistband these little trims here. Okay, just want all these lovely vertical lines now, instead of me, getting the line tool and just drawing a whole bunch of lines and you know, duplicating them, which, you know, it’s fine that would be a little bit time-consuming and also a little bit unwieldy. We’re going to create a brush which is really cool. Okay, it’s very, very helpful. So what we do is only get a line. Get my line tool. Go make sure have my black line out there. You click and drag and just create a line. Now let’s just do that again, so we’re going to click and drag. Hold down the shift key. We’ll lock it to the horizontal axis also lock it to the vertical, Sorry the diagonal and also vertical. Okay, so hold down the shift key to make sure it’s straight just release and then here. I’m just going to use that technique We had before, so I’m gonna get my big selection tool, which is the black one. Click and hold, hold down the option or Alt key on my keyboard. I’m just going to move that down under so much, and you see how you got the black and the white arrow there. Well, essentially, that is duplicating. It’s gonna leave that. Release it and then hit control D D or command D D D D. D. And what does it do, place that existing move? Okay, so now we have a whole row of beautiful lines that are all parallel to one another, and they’re all evenly spaced okay now. This is a little bit too thick for me, maybe? I want to make this little bit thinner, so let’s go to my stroke and let’s go not point three there. You go, it’s a little bit lighter now. What we do is gonna make a brush out of this so we can apply it anywhere. Two curved lines, straight lines, whatever so a big selection tool. I’m gonna click and drag over this whole bunch here. I’m gonna go to my brushes. If you can’t find it there, then go to a window and then brushes, and you see how you got this big blank space here of gray space school. Simply click and drag that into that box, and that’s gonna say right, new brush. We get art brush. Okay, and when you’re left to right, no, do not use these two because I’ll go up and down here We go left or right. It’s absolutely fine, click. OK, and now you can see. We have a brush in our palette. I’m just going to get rid of that so now. What happens is, let’s say we create a circle if I apply, and this is a line, so it’s a circular line. If I apply that brush, it’ll apply the brush to that circle If I do this. For example, their game, it’ll apply the brush to that line curvature, which is fantastic, especially comes to trim, so it’s a much simpler process and having to just draw and then draw and draw and drawn repeating repeating. P we can just get a line. Get our pen tool. Click click like that, for example. Just draw a line. Maybe we should note that in a little bit. Just try and get a similar shape to your existing lines here just to make it parallel and just them back in your trim lovely and what we can even do is if we don’t want to do that again for the opposite side, we can just get a big selection tool. Lets right, click, and then go transform and reflect it, and instead of, okay, we’re gonna hit copy to make a copy and we can just flip that over to the opposite side. There we go and let’s just maybe get a small selection tool. Click on this little bottom point here and nudge it along to get a similar parallel line. Okay, and we can also change this to make it a little bit closer to what that trim actually looks like. Okay, let’s get a big section tool. Click and the move. Okay, so this is great, but how do we actually get this to look neat and pretty? Well, what we do is we simply take. Let’s say, lets we take our brush and what we do is go to object, arrange and then send to back. Okay, you can do exactly the same else beside object. Arrange center back and what we do is. If you remember, let’s just get rid of these, remember? We have these trims, okay. These are things that going to contain those lines. Okay, they’re gonna most like a they’re only. Well, let me just show you So what I do is. I’m going to select the outline of that trim that we created earlier. I’m also gonna hold down the shift key. I’m going to select a line or the brush. You see how that those are both selected? Now you see that they’re both selected. I’m now gonna go, right, click and go make clipping mask and as you can see, my original trim, which is now no longer got a line around. It has basically contained those lines, a star really simple, really easy and what we’re to do is just to define that trim. I’m just make sure it’s a similar size to this line thickness. Let’s go stroke gonna take the weight up to about one point is perfect, Okay, just to define that trim, exactly same the opposite side. I’m going to take my. What do you call it? I’m gonna take my trim. I’m gonna take my brush as well now. The reason why we sent this to back is because for this little clipping masterwork This little clipping mask to work. You need this your trim, which is otherwise the the object that’s going to contain the brush to be on top of the brush. Okay, it’s very important. So once again, get your brush, go object. Arrange center back. Then we’re going to click on our trim, then we’re going to hold down the shift key to queue up those selections and click on the brush itself, so we have now both be selected. Then you go, right, Click, make clipping mask done, and once again, let’s get my small selection tool. Click on that little outline that trims were just selecting the trim and then we’re just gonna up the stroke on that. Let’s make actually no point Seven-five one’s a little bit too strong there. We go lovely. I’m do exactly the same for all the rest of my trims here. So this is a nice straight line, so it should be pretty simple, so I’m going to draw a line. Go to my brush. Click objects. Oops, and I’m gonna get this object. Arrange center back. I’m going to find my trim. I’m gonna also hold down the shift key key up those selections, find the brush and then go, right, click, make clipping mask done. Then let’s just create the recall it. Let’s add the note point seven-five to the trim, lets. Do the pockets as well. In fact, you know what? I think. I’d prefer this to be a little bit More curved just to make it feel a bit more three-dimensional so lets. Just change that around a little bit there. We go same with this one as well. Let’s make that a little bit more curved, same here, a bit more curved and also okay, so next we’re gonna add our trim to this one as well. It’ll click, click and drag to make that nice curved line. We’re going to add our brush and we can always nudge get the small section tool. Click on that little endpoint and nudge it up and down. I’m just trying to line up. That looks pretty good that with the top edge of our band. Okay, give me my big section tool. We click on this. I’m just going to nudge this up because if you can see. I only have this trim detailing kind of halfway down my pocket, so I’m going to nudge it up and then gonna get and then going to sorry. Go click on this This brush object. Arrange center back and then going to click on my pocket. I’m also going to hold down the shift key. Select my brush, right, click, make clipping mask, and we’ve got it once again. Small selection tool, click on the outline. And then let’s just go for there, you go sorry. Let’s go to nor point seven-fi’ve fab. Let’s do the same on the opposite side, so many creates. Yeah, there we go lovely, lets. Just change that a little bit. Let’s make it a little bit there. We go quite a follows. It give my big section tour. It’s going to move it up a little bit to match the opposite size. That’ll do, let’s just change the coach of that line a little bit more there. We got lovely, okay, so next we’re gonna click on this A big section tool object. Arrange, send to back there. We go. Let’s click on our trim, lets. Hold down the shift key. Click on our brush and then go, right, Click, make clipping mask and lets. Just grab that outline again, Make it 0.75 and that those are our pockets. Which is great, okay. This is perfect, We’re getting there and there’s one thing to mention as you can see that our buttons have got these lines going through them. So we kind of want to give these buttons a fill, so let’s just select all these buttons with the big section tool or the shift key. You can queue these up as well and then just let’s put a little fill on them and let’s make it white, okay, so it almost feels like they’re on top of that waistband. Okay, so that’s pretty much it for my details now. It’s time to start looking at the outline to create a really beautiful three-dimensional feel here, cuz at the moment, it’s all very, very flat to schedule our layers. So if I simply you see how it’s looking, This is obviously without the illustration underneath it, but it’s looking a little bit flat. We want to add a little bit more depth and personality to this. So let’s obviously then lock our layers. Let’s go to our outline layer and what going to do is. I’m going to actually, let’s unlock the body. I’m going to get my big section tool. I’m going to select the body. Okay, So I get all of it here. I’m going to select all the elements. Okay, so we have the trims. Let me get my the body. I’m going to get the trims as well, so the details. There we go there we go. What else can we get, okay. Yeah, okay, and what do those? I’m just going to go edit and then copy. Let’s go to our outline layer and lets. Just paste that on, okay. I’m just gonna move it into position. In fact, we can have it to the side here now. The reason why. I’ve grabbed all of these elements is because they kind of go into making up our outline and I’m just going to basically pull them all together to create. One object can including this pocket in everything. So I’ve got all of this selected, which is great. I’m thinking that’s my Pathfinder tool, and you find that in window and then Pathfinder. And here it is just simply click unite and that didn’t work at all. Okay, The reason why is because we have this brush inside, okay. What we’re gonna do is in fact, you know what, let’s just remove the pockets. We don’t really need it, so forget that completely, Okay, It’s not important something to do is in my outline. I’m just gonna simply click and drag big selection tool. I’m gonna go to my line width. It’s going to pull this up to be about two points also. I’m going to place this on the outside. See, align stroke detail to outside. I’m also going to make the corners curved to give it a nice, smooth effect and then also going to make the cap rounded cap. Okay, so what we do is lets. Just drag that back over our dress. All right, illustration, now as you can see, it’s becoming a little bit more three-dimensional it feels a little bit real or more real if that makes sense, but there are some some things that were missing here. So for example, the arms we’ve got this. You know, beautiful, so like kimono so like dropped armhole, and we also have our pocket edges here as well sort of do is with my pen tool and don’t forget where I outline layer, so I’m adding to the outline. I’m gonna click, and I’m just gonna do. I can drag and I’m using the same line thickness. So two and lets just there. We go put that into position. We need to change that a little bit. There you go, you can move this point around as we’ll just nudge it in. I see the opposite side. Lovely, let’s move that point down a little bit, so it’s more selection tool to find those those points and just nudge them around with your keyboard and then here as well, let’s create because obviously this isn’t opening, so let’s just create that line. You see, understand what I’m doing here. So essentially, this is our outline. We know that that’s the edge of our garment. Essentially, this is also the edge of our garment because it’s not a seam. It’s actually an opening, so that’s why we’re giving it this really thick black line, and that’s the whole point about the outline. There we go and also we have this opening here as well, so we’re just informing people how this garments actually put together. Okay, so you can see that essentially this crosses over. You see how that makes more sense now? This crosses over, it comes down to the split here. We’ve got to move that into this area there. We go, okay, you can, even if you want to just put a little line there to insinuate that it is okay, but it’s almost like a little plaque in an opening. Okay, all right. What next. It seems a bit weird that this is kind of going off into nowhere, so let’s also add the actual body or the inside of that pocket. Let’s just add, was it -? Yep, and lets. Just make sure it’s nice and smooth and clean with the rest of our lines. Such a small section tool, click and drag and just move that almost setting to the center. You might have your absolutely perfect, but from a distance. It should look pretty good there. We go! I see how that makes a bit more sense. Now, on the opposite side as well, so the outlines are really important layer or process. It kind of brings your garment’s life and explains a little bit about how the garment works or operates. Okay, that’s. I look down the bottom here. I think we’re pretty good to go what I might do. Just for the fun of it is just put a little bit of a line here just to show that it’s more pronounced down the bottom. You don’t have to its its more styling options it’s about you. I guess as an illustrator, same with this. Okay, it’s oh, look so. I think we’ve pretty much done. All we need to now is simply add in the model. Okay, so let’s have a look at our layers. So that’s our outline done, lets. Remove the outline here. We go! We have our details. Remove the details. We have our body which holds our color, and then we just have the model, but at this point in time, it is our illustration. So let’s actually grab our model now. If you follow season 1 episode 3 you will understand, why are we using? Preta template models or model, sorry, fashion templates where to get them, and also you know how to kind of get them into Adobe Illustrator. So I’m not going to go over that now, but I’m simply going to take up my Preta template model that I used originally, so lets. Just go into this and get some assets here. Alright, it’s in their notes and the next one. Sorry, let me just cut a spit out okay here. We go all right fashion templates. This one we’re not going to use. This is way too high fashion and turning out proportion, whereas this is the template we originally used, which is lovely, so what we do is in Adobe Illustrator, The Pressor template templates actually do open up and demonstrate, they’re already SVG or editable files to see how we’ve been creating illustrations with lines. Well, they output them with lines, which is great, so we can just simply get a small selection tool. We’re gonna click and drag over Just this one girl, go edit, copy and let’s go to our illustration, which is here. I’m just gonna go edit and then paste, and you see how she’s absolutely tiny. That’s fine, because obviously we had it. We have scanned in at a higher resolution, which is why she’s small and this is larger, but that’s fine with your big selection tool. Let’s just make sure she’s completely selected here, lets. Just click on this this. You see how on the edge there? Simply you can then transform it, make it larger now you can, you know, transform in a very unusual way. So if you hold down the shift key, it’ll lock the proportions, so when you scale it up, it’ll be the right size so now. I’m just looking at the top of our head here and let’s just move this down to the bottom. Try and get her foot, which is about there. Let’s say, let’s just move this over and see if I’ve got it, right. What I’m doing is, let’s go to the big section tool. Click and drag first of all. I’m gonna go to object and then group this just means that now if I click on it, I can get the whole item, whereas before. I’ve got individual items. This could cause all kinds of problems, so I should select the whole thing object group it. Let’s just move it into position or try to at least let’s zoom in a little bit and then walk with my arrow keys and nudge it around. Just left-right. Try and get the shoulders to match up. Okay, as you can see, she’s still a little bit too short. You can see there from the arm to the tip of the hand, so let’s just increase that. I hold down the shift key there. We go make a little bit larger. There’s just nudge that into position, so we’ve now got our model which is looking fab. So now let’s just go to our layers case at the moment. Wanna outline layer, which is unfortunate? I should have actually on to our model layer, so let’s just click on our girl again, lets. Just go edit cut, okay. We know that she’s the right size. Lets then lock our outline layer. Go to our model layer, unlock it, click on the model layer paste and then move her back into position and we can nudge her around a little bit, she’s. Looking good, and now we can do is we can completely remove our fashion illustration or our existing templates just simply by selecting it, hitting backspace. And now you can see we have this really beautiful illustration with the model behind, and we have all of our details and looking lovely. However, at the moment she is pretty much. The dress is see-through. So what we gonna do is, let’s just first of all. Grab the model. Let’s change the color. Let’s change it to be black outline, so the line color double-click we’re gonna get black click. OK, and then here we’re just going to bring that down from one point six, which is quite strong. It’s not point three. They go a little bit more refined. What we do now is. I’m gonna go to my other layer. Which is the body layer lets. Just unlock it and here. I’m gonna select the dress. I’m just gonna give it a fill. I’m gonna fill it with white because I want to put any cultural illustration just yet, and now what Babar? As you can see because the body, which is essentially the body of our dress, We’ve now call it white. We’ve blocked out the model, which means we don’t have to do too much work with the model. Okay, it’s still there so now. I’ll do the model, cuz. She looks very, let’s say Wireframe II. I’m gonna remove some elements, so let’s go to our layers. Lock the body Unlock model, click on the model. Get your small section tool. And now let’s just start to remove some lines so simply click on it with a small selection tool and then hit backspace a few times. Not just once because you’ll leave points, hit it twice, okay, so backspace one to backspace one to backspace one to same here as well? We don’t need these lines. Same with this one. I’m gonna keep these because I want to essentially show where the bust actually is, but I will change it up a little bit. This is actually amount of work to do with this model, so what we do is? I’m going to my small selection tool. I’m going to select this bust location. Go to my cut tool and once again. If you can’t find it, go into your tool bar, scroll down to find the scissors icon. I’m just going to simply snip my scissor tool and I’m gonna sniff about here and here and I’m just going to small section tool. Select the other part of that. So we’ve cut this little area out. Just double click to delete also double. Click on your backspace. Delete it, do the same with opposite sides. I’m it’s roughly similar. She’s quite cleavage dress. Its small section tool. Quick hit backspace a few times. I’m also going to add some collar bones, which are essentially about here and you see because we’re working on the model layer. It doesn’t matter if I draw a point here. It’ll only show where the dress isn’t being covered, which is really handy, so this is why the structure or creating structure in your illustrations makes life so much easier in the long run, so let’s just create some simple lines here just to kind of insinuate, or, you know, kind of give an idea or an impression that we have some muscle on our mannequin. OK, great, let’s go down. We can also add maybe like a little little flair there just to show the arm crease. It’s up to you, you don’t have to, but essentially that’s it. That’s pretty much our model mannequin with her dress. So, yeah, this just like down the model layer. Let’s go to our body layer and so now if you want to with your body layer, you can add different colors. Whether it be a flat color. You know, you can add green. Whatever you want to do is completely up to you. You can also add a print as well. Now buy a print. What I mean is lets. Just create a very simplistic print. It’s going to create a little square. I’m gonna then let’s make it like I don’t know pink. Let’s then go for a circle like this. Let’s make it like a navy or something. I’m unless you just making this up as I go along, not saying it’s gonna be amazing, but let’s just see triangle. We can’t create a triangle, so let’s just create our own quickly. It’s not a perfect triangle, but it’ll work and it’s going for what let’s go for a teal, maybe or a mustard, but for mid-century kind of concept here and then let’s just kind of, like, replicate this a little bit just by, you know, moving it around. I’m just adding in whatever as I’m just doing this for sheer fun of it at the moment. It’s not print, really there. We go, Let’s just make that a little bit smaller object. Let’s just group those items there we go, We can make it a little bit smaller as well and then let’s just simply start to create more of these games. I’m kind of like creating a print there we go. I mean, you can even get an image online and kind of tuck that in there and it would still be. You know, you get a print online. Pat, so I’m just going to show you how to create one there. We go lots of this group, lets. Just maybe make that a little bit larger. Perhaps let’s just move that down as well. Don’t worry too much about what I’m doing. We can do a whole print tutorial and another another time. Just group that if I what we do is this, Yeah, so on our body there, I’m gonna go object. Arrange, send to back so once you have your print, you know, object, arrange and then send to back and then with your body layer, we’re going to simply select the body layer, so let’s go to set the body layer and also hold another shift key, select the print layer and then go right, click and then make clipping mask boom there. You go look at that beautiful we now have. Well, it’s intense, but it’s you get the point, okay, so, fortune! My video cut out there, but that’s fine, so right now, so we’ve got our print in the next looking absolutely fantastic, loving it. There is one thing which we have to have a look at so obviously the the model is actually that the garment is see-through there. We have a print in there. The garment is see-through so we can see the model so essentially we need to do is just go to a small selection tool, which is the white one and then with all the other layers locked here, we go to the body layer and we’re going to click on the outline. And here you can see. We have a fill now. If we add a fill to it, lets maybe make it like a it’s. Maybe go for, like, almost like a cream color, gray cream and click. OK, and as you can see, we’ve now filled it. And the model is no longer there and we can change this color to be anything we want essential. It’s the background of your print, so let’s just make it look lighter, perfect and another really fun thing. What if some kind of already done here is you can actually change the trim colors as well. So, for example, if we lock for body layer, go to our details layer. Click on that we can go to the outline of our trim here and we can go, right. Well, let’s have it. Maybe let’s actually remove it completely, so that’s cancel. Let’s remove it completely and then. I’ll print will show through same with this side. We can remove the fill and our print will show through. Otherwise, we can maybe pick up a color so it is still selected and this at the forefront, we can simply go to our eyedropper tool and this will pick up the color of the background. Okay, we can even go for the red. It’s a bit bright or we can go for the orange, for example, so we can actually change the colors and trims independently. But yes, let’s go for that. A nice sort of like cream color again. There we go same on the opposite side. We’ve lost that actually the lineup for that. Some reason, OK, what’s happened there? Just go back, controls there just to go back back back there. We go ok now. We do the same opposite side, lets. Just get that fill and same with other trims as well. That’s really simple. We just simply click on the outline and we can change that color to me. Whatever we want, so we can start to actually create new designs, but that. I’m really happy with, OK? So that is essentially the end of our tutorial, A little bit of an in-depth idea on how you can actually create Adobe Sorry illustrations in Adobe Illustrator using your lets a fashion illustration through your sketches to create these lovely say garments and actually created a few of these. Let’s have a look open, so let’s go here. We go open these up. And these are actually available to download on the blog page quickly. So this is our first one which created, I’ve also done this one, so a similar print but different dress or illustration, and you can have a look at these illustrations in season 1 episode 3 of our blog and looking so just change the colors, etc, and we have novel as well, which is this one, which is quite pretty too, so they said these are available to download on the actual blog page itself, so from Youtube head over to our website and take a look at those, they’re free of charge and they’re fully editable as well and they also have the layers, so you can have a look at actually what we’ve done here. Okay, so yeah, enjoy. Oh, that’s a bit better there. We go so you can actually see what’s going on here. Okay, all right, thanks for watching and. I’ll see you for ya next episode where we’re going to start looking at print design, which should be really exciting. Really good fun. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave any comments on the blog and we will try and answer them. Thank you, okay, that’s pretty much it from me this week. I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and once again, let’s just mention so next. Next next episode, we’re gonna be focusing on actual print design. We’re using these beautiful lilies once they start to blossom and open up, and we’re gonna basically create some really beautiful fashion print, which we can then basically print, additionally print on material for the next stage in our our project for Francesca’s robe. So it’s a really beautiful, dark background, some beautiful colors and the lilies and stuff so should be really good fun. Also, don’t forget, please subscribe to us on Youtube.
