am not a newbie in illustrator. but I dnt understand why this is happening.I took pen tool for both sadows. the tutorial am following to creat this tht guy has no boundary between shadows like mine does. i restarted pc- it doesn't go away. I re start illustrator it's still happening. I created even 3 more!! still, it is there... why these two shadows are not blending?? why is that middle line occurring every time?? please help me.
Short of opening up your file and seeing what is actually going on here, I can give at least 2 ways as to how that line is showing up:
- There is an extra line that you made with the pen tool that isn't accounted for (on another layer, perhaps even locked, etc.)
- There is a slight overlap between the two shapes causing the line. You can use
View -> Outline(ctrl-y) to see if this is the case and then snap the vertices of these shapes together to eliminate the overlap.
If none of these things are happening you can always merge the two shapes together using the Pathfinder or Shapebuilder tool.
Hope this helps!
