Instructions and Help about When 8850 Form Circular

Hello everyone Chris here from spoon graphics back with another video tutorial today we're going to take a look at some nifty tricks in Adobe Illustrator that can be used to create some extremely detailed patterns in this tutorial I'll show you how to create this complex circular pattern that consists of thousands of intricate paths that loop and overlap each other to form a variety of bands that form the overall circle it might look super complicated but it's actually all done with illustrators blend tool so let's get started I'll show you how you can create one yourself begin by creating a new document in Adobe Illustrator now before we start you might want to check your illustrator preferences and turn off scale strokes and effects this will allow you to resize your objects while keeping the same stroke way select the ellipse tool and draw a small circle on the artboard play around the Y fill by clicking the none icon at the bottom of the toolbar with the selection tool active hold the Alt + Shift keys then drag out a duplicate of the shape to the right draw a selection around both shapes then go to object blend and make grab the ellipse tool again and draw a circle at roughly the size of your desired pattern draw a selection around both they blend and this circle then go to object blending we place spine you'll notice that the smaller circles don't quite follow the entire circumference of the larger circle instead the start and end three-quarters of the way around to fix this grab the scissors tool and give the top point of the circle a snip head back to the object blend and blend options menu then check the preview button change the drop-down menu to specified steps then alter the number to produce a detailed pattern of ring shapes press command + C then command an F to copy and paste in front a duplicate of the first pattern scale it down while holding these shift and alt keys because of the blend effect the pattern doesn't scale perfectly towards its center we could expand the shape which would fix it but then we'd lose the ability to alter the blend settings instead bring up the document rulers with the command and our shortcut and drag out two guides to fall across zoom right into the document to make an accurate adjustment then grab and move e to the two shapes with the center handle line the manually with the guides slightly the ellipse tool and draw another circle as the basis of a new pattern this time make it a little bit smaller add a black stroke with no fill make a duplicate then create a blend when drawing the replacement spine hold the Alt + Shift keys and drag the circle out from the center of the guide so it will be nicely aligned to the main pattern it's like both a new circle and the new blend then head to object blend and replace spine remember to snip the top point to allow the blend to run all the way around the circle bring up the blend options and change the settings to specified steps and alter the figure to create a different style of circular pattern if you scale the pattern to line it up with the other circles remember to zoom in and correct the center add another circular pattern towards the center this time crank up the steps to produce a really detailed centerpiece for the overall design let's try something a little bit different this time grab the ellipse tool but instead of a circle draw an oval shape create a blend draw new spine you place the spine and snip the Anchor Point and bring up the blend options and set the mode to specified steps this oval shape requires one more setting click the orientation icon that aligns to path to point all the shapes towards the center go ahead and adjust the steps to create a slightly different type of pattern it isn't just ellipses that work with this effect repeat the process with a square following all the same steps including the option to change the orientation simply build it up and align in multiple bands of these circular patterns results in a super intricate design and it's up to you our big ego hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial for Adobe Illustrator if you did be sure to check out my channel for more you can also find written tutorials and free design resources over on my website at spoon dot graphics otherwise thank you very much for watching and I'll catch you all later
