a lesson in Adobe Illustrator
    #2380762 - 02/26/04 08:38 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hello artists-

I have always been using Photoshop for my graphic but recently got a copy of Adobe Illustrator 10. I am a little confused about how to use this program and was wondering if someone could help get me started either with tutorials online or your own personal knowledge that would very helpful.

My main question is the paintbrush/ pencil tool. When I draw a small circle for instance, it shows up on my canvas. Then when I want to draw a bigger circle around the smaller circle, it will completely mask out and erase the smaller circle. Is there any way for me to seamlessley cross lines as if I were drawing on a pad of paper like I do in photoshop?

Thanks dudes !

-Yellow

the answer to your specific question is that ... rather than have a single color to use, like Flash you are drawing using a stroke and fill at the same time -- however, you can use either/or instead ...

the filled square in your toolbar represents the fill, while the square that is merely a stroke represents ... the stroke  :wink:

so if you want just a circle, and no fill, click the filled square and then under the square there should be a tiny square with a red cross through it ... press that button to eliminate the fill ...

this can be used the other way around as well ...

hope this helps ... illustrator takes a bit to master but it's awesomeee when you've got it

ok, if I'm understand you right, your basically asking how to make a dohnut shaped object. I maped out what I think you might be asking for here..... when you first make a circular object you'll notice it's filled in completely, so if you make a larger circle over that one....you'll need to make sure you have your "fill" square to the front of your tools pallate and then click on the "none" button, then make sure that you have a color selected for your "stroke" button. the stroke is basically just a color to outline a object you've created. by doing this the larger circle you made over the smaller will become visible because the larger circle will no longer be filled with a color. hope that was some sort of help and I just didnt confuse the hell outta you.

I have a little diagram here
