Hello, I have been having issues with using the blend tool on my object. If you look at the picture, I had one outer shape that was what I wanted shaded and a thinner shape that runs inside the other. It blends perfectly fine everywhere except at the bottom. I don't know how to explain it or what went wrong but I can't figure out how to make the blend fit inside the shape.
Try to have the same number of anchors on the inner and outer shapes.
I’m not sure why the space between the legs on your drawing fills in.
Are you sure that both paths are closed? To be sure, do a Pathfinder (panel) Unite on each of them.
When you use the Blend tool be sure to click on corresponding anchors on each path.
If you have an unequal number of anchors on the paths, try just direct selecting the anchors that matter on each path prior to using the Blend tool.
Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately it didn't resolve my problem. I went in and gave both shapes equal amounts of anchor points in relatively similar places and made sure that both shapes were closed (they were). I tried selecting the inner leg points on both shapes before blending but the result was the same.
Well, you half fixed my problem. I deleted two points where you said and the big gap between the legs disappeared but it seemed to have broken every other part of the body. Believe me, I've been messing with adding and subtracting points now but it keeps altering between what you see in this picture and back to the big gap between the legs.
Edit: After messing around with it for awhile I got it to fit with the shape. Thanks everyone for the help. My points weren't lining up within the two shapes, I guess.
