I want to erase a part of a path while maintaining the stroke's original look. My chosen stroke is the first one BELOW [Uniform]. I'm new and just a week in at illustrator. This is my very first logo design. I haven't added the missing parts from the sketch though but it can wait.
Also, uniting or joining the paths of the bite makes the stroke go crazy so if I needed to do these for the paths in order to properly use pathfinder, you see its useless. Grouping them did not do much (for me)
I also tried covering the discarded parts with white, but I want a transparent background.
These are my newbie attempts. I am ready to do the pro moves if the masters here so advice. I've searched the web already but it seems like I'm the only one with this problem. All popped up "solutions" shown to me are those using the uniform stroke instead, so basically it didn't help me much.
