How was this created

Nov 30, 2011 10:39 PM

I have a hard time believing that someone manually adjusted all 1200 gradient mesh nodes to cook this up just to sell it on a stock site...  Is there another way to generate meshes?  I need to do another version of this style...

    Just speculating, but maybe all those mesh objects formerly were usual gradient fills which perhaps were converted to gradient meshes through Object > Expand, followed by some fine-tuning.

    Jesse, I am a bit surprised.

     

    As far as I remember, you are a conversant illustrator. Therefore, I think, you've already created a couple of drafts about that kind of design, haven't you?

     

    Show and describe what you've done so far, complain about the shortcomings and then see if someone will give some advice :-)

    You don't have to manipulate MeshPoints (in Grad Meshes or Envelope Meshes) one-at-a-time. You can subselect whole rows of MeshPoints at once with the white pointer or even make a "weaving" selection with the Lasso around MeshPoints, and then perform ordinary transformations on the selected subset.
