Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the lamp shape, part of Creating Commercial Illustrations.
- What we're going to do now is we're going to…look at individual parts or elements of this image…and see how they were done.…And what we're going to start with is right here...…this lamp.…Okay? There's that lamp.…You see most of it is hidden but…it's okay, we're going to create an entire lamp.…Now, I usually like to refer to Illustrator…as my pencil on the canvas,…and Photoshop becomes the paint.…One of the reasons is because of…all the vector controls that you have in Illustrator…that are not in Photoshop.…
So, I am going to start in Illustrator.…Now, here we've got a blank screen…right now in Illustrator,…and I'm going to bring out my rulers and…pull out a guide and put it right here in the center.…That's just so I have a center area…from which to draw all the basic shapes.…So now, here we go.…I'm going to do this.…I'm going to take my little primitives here,…and use the Elliptical tool.…Now what I'm going to do is right up here,…I'm going to draw a little circle…from the center out, a little ellipse,…and this is going to be the top of the lampshade.…
