Creating a Day of the Dead Inspired Portrait


In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how I created a Day of the Dead inspired portrait with Adobe Illustrator CS5. Along the way I’ll be using a variety of different sources to obtain color palettes, using a selection of brushes and many other quick tips you can use in future projects.


I’m going to be using a stock image as a base which is from the talented Claire Jones, a stock artist I’ve used a lot in my previous illustrations and a pleasure to collaborate with for today’s tutorial.

Adobe Illustrator CS6 Sneak Peak: Gradients on Strokes

Join Brenda Sutherland, Illustrator product manager, as she shares a new sneak peek into gradients on strokes in Illustrator CS6, part of Creative Suite CS6 and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Strokes are core to drawing in Illustrator, and for Illustrator CS6, the ability to apply gradients on strokes will let designers transform simple paths into visually complex and compelling shapes.

The beauty of this approach, beyond the imaginative artwork that can be created, is that the shape that’s created is an easily edited stroke, not the typical shape that’s defined by many points.

In Illustrator CS6, gradients on strokes can be applied along the length, across the width, or within a stroke, but the real magic happens when these new gradients are combined with the variable width stroke feature introduced in CS5.
