You could use the Wrinkle tool. It's located in the Tool bar as shown below. Double click the Tool icon to change settings as required. These are the settings I chose. Then use the tool as you would normally use the Brush tool, over the edges of a rectangle or shape, until it's rough enough. The other answer given covers the addition of stippling/shading. ...

Using blend is the way to go. Blends over complex curves aren't easy to control though—you end up with something like this: An easier way is to create your blend on a straight path and create an art brush form your blend. Controlling blends with varying strokes also isn't easy so I would suggest using 2 separate blends. Create your first blend: Duplicate ...

CS6 screen shots.. but it's the same for newer versions as well. Also by "outlined paths" I'm assuming you mean you have actual shapes with fills, not strokes with an "outline" effect applied to them. Assume the black is your shape.... These are two separate shapes. You can do this with any number of objects at the same time.... Add a new stroke. (Any ...

The effect is live. That is it will recreate itself whenever you make a change to the underlying object. Some of the things can simply not be done in any meaningful way with other methods, such as drop shadows. The benefits are: Less objects, less data to upkeep. More efficient workflows. Easy to replicate, you can save the style stack for reuse. Some ...

You can create a circle and a second one in the middle (the inner circle should be the size of the stacked ones) Then draw a line down the middle and use Shape Builder Tool to separate them: Rotate the (yellow) piece to desired angle and then apply the same 3D angles - just make the Extrusion Depth much higher:

This can be done with a simple Blend in Illustrator. You can use the Replace Spine command and get the blend to follow a circle. You merely have to cut the circle at one anchor point for the blend to space correctly. Note that I selected the 5 base circles and distributed horizontal spacing so they were all equally spaced before creating the blend. This ...

The background there is simply a radial gradient white to blue If you want a bit more control and a smoother "fade", which is not necessarily elliptical, you can use a Gradient Mesh. Set the outer points to a color and the center point to white. Then adjust the mesh handles/points.

For a way to mimic this using vectors in Illustrator, this would be how I'd pursue it... Set Type (no need to convert to outlines. In fact it may be better if you don't) Select the type with the Selection Tool (v) Choose Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh Set a number of rows and columns that seems appropriate (you can always change this later ...

You can get the same effect with a single live text object (meaning you can have this effect and still be able to edit the text) using the Appearance panel. With your text selected, open the Appearance panel (Window → Appearance). Using the buttons at the bottom of the panel add a fill and two strokes. Set your fill and drag it above the strokes in the ...

Create your shape... Rotate the shape so that your angle of distortion is at a 90 degree angle... Object → Envelope Distort → Make with Mesh... Use the Direct Selection Tool to select whole columns/rows of mesh points and nudge.

Take a picture of some 'grunge' or scan in some 'grunge'. Crank the contrast up in Photoshop to make a black/white image. Bring that into your vector illustration tool and auto-trace it. Then take your letters, join them into one object. Take your grunge, join that into one object. Then use pathfinder tools to 'punch' the grunge out of your letters.

I'm pretty sure the provided effect was done in a 3D software. It will give you the most accurate and best results that way. However, there are few ways to imitate similar effects in Photoshop. It all depends on how much time you want to spend on creating it. Things you need: fabric folds image (for raster images) - silk is probably the best in this case ...

There is another solution: Change the stroke corners to rounded Square: Rounded: Of course, that is assuming you are ok with actually having a rounded corner there as opposed to completely square.

That is just a straightforward use of the Letraset Shatter font (or a clone of it). Shatter is based on Helvetica (obliqued, rotated left, then sliced and displaced if you want to create the effect manually - something that's immeasurably easier with a computer than it was with rub-down lettering and an X-Acto knife); there are similar fonts available (at ...

My Solution is depending on Astute Graphics plugin called "Phantasm" you can download a trial version of it. First I have to prepare my artwork before using it. So please follow my steps. type the letter A with your desire font. convert the type to outline by selecting it with the black arrow and go to Types > Create Outlines or press Shift+CTRL+O now I ...

I think you should use a tool called Clipping Mask It's easier using the Clipping Mask tool where the letter (A) act like a mask for all objects underneath. For doing that, make sure to put your letter (A) over the group of wavy strokes and select all artworks, then go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make or just Click CTRL + 7 ... That's it. as you ...

In my opinion the easiest and quickest way would be mesh tool and just some desaturated/pastel colours. First create a mesh'ed object. I already have opened desaturated swatch library (open swatch library > color properties > desaturated). You can also create your own or import one that suits you best. Then, with direct selection tool select some points ...

If you don't mind changing the source text you can remove the underline from characters with descenders and use spaces to make up the missing underline where needed. If you only have a handful of places where you need to do this then you can do it manually pretty easily, for anything longer you can (in InDesign) set GREP styles and use some GREP find & ...

Add multiple strokes via the Appearance Panel. (click the image to see it larger) Start with the object Add a thicker, white stroke under the object add a "shadow" colored stroke under the white stroke. Choose Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform from the menu with the last stroke highlighted in the Appearance Panel Adjust the Vertical ...

The receipe seemingly is already given. It is unfortunately distributed between all the comments and have an implicit form. But here it's written together: Start with a circle in Illustrator. Copy it to a series of concentric circles. I had 40 of them. Prepare in Photoshop a new hi-res empty image. I took 3000 x 3000 pixels. Copy and paste your circle set ...

You can use raster images in various layers and colors along with the Illustrator "Object Mosaic" feature. Once you have your object turned into many colorized squares by Illustrator automatically, you can ungroup everything and apply a rounded corner effect or appearance to make each square into a circle. Also you can use the convert-to-shape or various ...

You can add a new appearance to the text. Group the text (Ctrl+G) and open up the Appearance Panel (Window → Appearance) Select the group Click on the dropdown and select Add New Fill Now apply the gradient: This also works for Radial Gradients (not only Linear):

No. You cannot suspend the rendering, or queue it, if the object is visible. The only way to prevent the auto-update of rendering is to hide the object, either by hiding the layer the object resides on or by hiding the object itself. However... You can reduce the Document Raster Effect Setting (DRES) while you work which can greatly increase the speed of ...

Edit: I accidentally posted this for Photoshop and failed to notice the Illustrator tag. However, I'll leave this answer here should anyone find it useful. Here's one possible method. Fill the canvas with a light blue such as #98bcd4 Do Image > Mode > 16bits/channel. This will help reduce banding in the final step. Choose a large soft edged brush about ...

I have no idea why you would ever bother trying to do this in Illustrator. Surely you aren't supplying vector product mockups to clients. So I assume all you need is a jpg, png, or pdf of the mockup. Photoshop makes this very easy.... Illustrator doesn't. You, of course, want the vector (Illustrator) logo, but you can utilize that in Photoshop directly. The ...
