In celebration of St. Patricks Day, I will show you how to create a Shamrock or Three Leaf Clover in Illustrator. This video tutorial covers techniques to speed up your workflow.
- Pen Tool (T)
- Rotate Tool (R)
- Stroke Panel
Once you’re done with your shamrock shape, you can take it a step further and create stickers, t-shirts, cards or posters. As usual, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
Vectortwist Qucik Tips:
- Turn on the Grid under View > Show Grid.
- Use Smart Guides ( View > Smart Guides ). This helps with alignment and symmetry.
- Make good use of the Duplicate Shortcut, one of my fav tools: CMD/CTRL + D
- Solid Shapes and Lines combined with the Pathfinder Tools can create new shapes
