[MUSIC] Hey, Jeremy, here! I’m gonna be showing you the blending modes in illustrator CC, You know, and what they look like to open up the blending modes, you need to be using the transparency panel to open that you go to the top left corner. Go to window and go to transparency. Innovate this box pop-up. So the cool thing about this, You press the drop down menu and you can see you get all your blending modes here. No normal, darken, multiply, color, burn all the way down to luminosity, and you can even edit the opacity on in this box by, you know, dropping this down and you can do it like this or even type the amount like that type. How much you want to press enter? So if I select this, you can see it. Drop the opacity and it’s gonna the increase or decrease. How much of the effect is gonna be applied, makes it less less or more transparent, which is pretty cool so first up. We’re gonna test all these with just a white background, then. I’ll show you with the three, the third color. So you can see he. The first one is just normal and you can see. I’ve got all these circles are just two colors to show you what it looks like so normal does nothing. It just keeps the base colors as you picked it. And then the second one we’ve got darken so. I’ve darkened all of the second circles on the right Hand Side. Are the ones with the effects on and you can apply it to the bottom on as well, but you can see it will only work. When you’ve got, there’s something on top, you’ve got to have a color on top of it to make sure it’s mixing so dark game pretty much whichever dark part of it is darker. Then that’s what it’s gonna darken, so you can see its overlapping and this color is a darker one, so it’s darkened this one. Even more third is multiply. It multiplies the colors on top of each other, so you can see there. This one is a red. If I go choose the blue there, you see those colors, they’re blending nicely, so that’s multiply multiplies fun, too, and with you’re doing shadows for illustrations. It works really well, even for logo design as well color burn similar to multiply as well. But as you can see, it’s sort of darkens. That area darkens that area there, and it reflects the blend color pretty cool. This one is lighting lighting pretty much just makes this light spot here and whichever part is. Lara, that’s the resulting color, so I’m sort of makes it white as well. Similar thing. We’ve screen screen multiplies the inverse of the blend in base colors, so see, they’re similar effect. Color, Dodge color Dodge sometimes works. Where, as well as well for highlights, you can see in this instance. It’s not working as well, but you can see if I change the colors, you can see what I mean. So what the blue? They’re yellow there, so it may. It brightens this middle this section here, the overlapping session, and then it also keeps this section light assault at that color. Let me go overlay as well. Overlay multiplies the screen colors, and it depends on the base color, so it’s gonna overlay it experiment. These colors here, see what it looks like. Overlay is really good if you want to overlay it on overall on a finished artwork illustration or even a photograph. I’ve got a photo and you can overlay a color to try and give it that, you know, monotone look, which is pretty sweet then. I’ve got soft, light, soft light darkens or lightens the colors, depending on the blend color and so you can see there. And then hard light is sort of a similar effect, it multiplies or or screens, the colors, so that’s the effect you’re gonna get you’ve that we’ve got difference, And then we’ve got exclusion, which is similar exclusion has a little less more contrast, apparently, and this one’s up and the different subtracts the color, so you can see there. You’re getting this black Look. So if you play around, you can see there, It’s just that’s what R acting there. This one is hue. So he creates a resulting color within luminance and saturation of the base color and the hue of the blank color. So you can see how it’s mixing that, and yeah, it’s creating this this hue, and because the blue is on top, It’s gonna come up with that. So if I go this way, the Reds on top now and you can see that hue is creating that that a lot of hues there. I put the blue back and that’s what’s gonna happen there. Saturation creates a resulting color with the luminance of the base color and the hue and saturation of the blame color. So that’s? What it does saturations are right. I don’t really use saturation. Much color is cool as well, color crates, resulting color with the luminance of the base, color and hue and saturation of the Blin color. It also preserves gray levels in the artwork and it’s also useful for coloring, monochrome artwork and for tinting color artwork. So if you have black and white illustration, you can just lay literally just lay over a blue thing, and it sort of color at the whole thing and all the lights and the dark tones and the light tones will get colored, which is pretty useful. The last one is luminosity. I don’t really use this one either. It pretty much has a similar effect to the last three. But you can see there. What it looks like so, yeah, those are all the blending modes tested, you know? I’ll show you with the third color. So this nice, you know, tan cream colors on the bottom. I’ll just move this back up here and you can see there. It’s all the same color, so you know, dark and multiply etc, etc. So you can see what it looks like. I’m just gonna go through so you can see the difference there. This one’s screen color. Dodge overlay soft, but hard light difference exclusion and the resti. So, yeah, you can see the kind of fix anything. Create really awesome effects. It’s great for shading for lighting and all sorts of type of things, you know, so it’s good to learn these.
