I have created this shape in Photoshop and exported as PNG: This is my image

I then imported it to Illustrator and now I am trying to colour it exactly as the logo below. Any help?

This is the image. Any help?

  • If it's a raster image, then it can't be edited in Illustrator. Is it a raster image? – Billy Kerr Feb 15 '18 at 18:39
  • Hard to say... What does your version look like? – MG_ Feb 15 '18 at 18:44
  • It is not a raster image. It's a vector shape created using Photoshop. – XavierV Feb 15 '18 at 19:40
  • The rat logo is what I wish to fill in a similar way like the "carrat" in the first image. – XavierV Feb 15 '18 at 19:43

    Use the pen tool, pencil tool or curvature tool and draw it manually. – LeoNas Feb 15 '18 at 20:09

You have to understand how vector graphics work; it's not the same as painting on a piece of paper, where every brush stroke covers what you are painting over.

You also have to shift your thinking a little away from filling shapes: since you can create independent objects, the outline can be a different object than the fill color object. See where I'm going with this?

You already have an outline object. It has open shapes, and although you can still fill it with color (it doesn't matter how at this point) it will follow the shape of the outline. Instead, create a different shape, fill it with the color you want and send it to the back of your outline object. This way you can get the same results from your first example.

Draw separate objects.

Fill them with the colors you want.

Stack the objects on top of one another.

Not really good with photoshop on computer because I mainly use my phone for stuff try to make the entire shape transparent with the inside as well and use a brush on a different layer to replicate this look.
