In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial we will create sliced isometric text effects that are nondestructive, your 3d isometric text stays editable! You will learn how you can easily add shapes that become cut outs or simulate slices to any live text without having to outline it.

Choose any font, the bolder the better, and create the text on your artboard. Usually you would need to outline the text to apply any kind of Pathfinder effects, from cutting out shapes to dividing them or combining them. But with one simple keyboard shortcut you can apply the Pathfinder modes to your live text! Learn how to by watching the video now!

In this weeks tutorial we’ll create an isometric house with roof and learn how to add some neat shingles. You’ll learn how to create two types of roofs, a tin roof and a terracotta style roof. We’ll be working with an isometric grid, the Blend Tool and the 👉 Appearance Panel (remember, the Appearance Panel is your best friends) and a neat red/blue color combo (download link below).


Learning Illustrator is easier than you think!

Adobe Illustrator Appearance Panel

  1. Add multiple Effects

    You can add multiple Effects to one Object. Simply keep your object selected and click the FX button in the Appearance Panel and select the desired effect.

  2. Reorder Layers with Effects

    You can easily reorder layers in the Appearance Panel. Simply highlight/select the layer and drag it above or below another layer.

  3. Add Transform

    When you add the Transform Effect in the Appearance Panel to one of your objects, it makes it really easy to created multiple shapes out of one. Give it a try.

Hi everyone. It was time for another speedart so I created a colorful isometric buildings and storefronts scene in Adobe Illustrator. I created three isometric buildings, a bike store with a storefront, a coffee shop and a dance studio. I kept the color bright and cherry and picked some awesome dance music to go along with the speedart, so sit back, relax and enjoy!

Adobe Illustrator has been my goto software for digital art creation for over 10 years now. When I started out learning Illustrator it seemed so complicated, so overwhelming. I remember looking at Illustrator books and I came across one called Adobe Illustrator WOW book. I was amazed by the artists featured in it and how each of them gave fantastic tips and small tutorials on seemingly complicated Illustrator features, at least for me at the time.

Over the years I kept learning Illustrator and when I discovered new tips and trick I began to create tutorials and eventually courses to share my knowledge with the world. I know how frustrating it can be starting with a new software and it became important to me to share what I’ve learned with others, simply to ease any frustration you might encounter, so in the end you’ll be able to express your creativity.

Fast forward then 12 years and I am proud to announce that I have been asked to be part of the Adobe Illustrator WOW book artist team, where each artist explains how their artwork was created. 

It is such a privilege to have my artwork with my techniques featured in this book! With that said, the Adobe Illustrator WOW! Book for CS6 & CC, 2nd Edition is now available!

I just received MY copy, and it looks awesome with tons of educational material inside.

Through the end of the year everyone can order the book at 37% off retail by entering the discount code WOWCC during checkout at Peachpit.com
