Sure! Use the Appearance Panel. You can stack multiple strokes (or fills) onto the same path which is much more precise, clean, and editable than anything Photoshop can do. For more information on the Appearance Panel CLICK HERE.
Your question is a bit unclear, perhaps a image could help. If I have understood, you are starting from a "O" like object, like this (I've used the text tool to write an "O" and then I've used path->object to path): And you want to achieve a sort of two "O" nested: Starting from the first object, the orange one, this is composed by two paths: external ...
This is a bit broad, not knowing the style of coloring you are after. If you merely want flat solid colors, then Illustrator's Live Paint Bucket Tool will handle that just fine. Select all, grab the Live Paint Bucket Tool and start clicking. If you want more painterly color (and it sounds like you do) then Illustrator isn't a good tool for that. I would ...
It does look like scanned and manipulated art. The folders are obviously a dupe, but possibly was conceived as a stand-alone icon and then duplicated. A lot of the brush work looks responsive, which makes me wonder a little about whether it was automatically generated or not. However, in Photoshop, you can simulate colored pencil using brush dynamics ...
In Photoshop, the tool to do this is called Content-Aware: To use it, I selected a box around the X, did a Fill (Shift+F5), and selected Content-Aware from the Use dropdown. A similar tool exists for GIMP, however I have never used it so your results may vary. Search for tutorials on the Resynthesizer tool.
Simply use the Ellipse Tool to draw an ellipse and set the Fill to none and the Stroke to whatever you want. Edit: For versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6 Simply set the Fill Opacity to 0% and add a stroke Layer Style
Yes. The way you are expecting swatches to work is called 'global' swatches in Illustrator. Swatches are not global by default. You can make any colour swatch global by double-clicking it in the swatch panel, then ticking the 'global' box. The swatch will get a small white marker in the panel to indicate that it's global. When a global swatch is applied ...
Although not a plugin, this is an ideal case for a Pattern in Illustrator. In your case it can be used to generate many copies of an object to be placed on a single page. From your description it sounds like you could be talking about making an image into a pattern. In Illustrator, it is actually possible to create patterns out of images. You'll want to ...
Scott is on the money. Also just to answer your issue with colouring the fur for example, you could use the polygonal lasso tool in Photoshop to select the area appropriately rather than creating a closed container using lines.
If you are trying to save the shape for further manipulation, all you need to do is name the path in the Path window so it won't get overwritten when you create another shape. If you don't see your Paths window go to Window > Path to show it. To create a shape with the pen tool from the start, make sure the Shape Layer icon is selected.
Going off Scott's comment, I'm going to write out how to reset preferences (based on the video) just in case someone just wants to read over this and do it rather than watching the 8 minute video. Method 1: Moving the Preferences Files First off, make sure you are closed out of Photoshop. Next, if you're on Mac, navigate to: ...
