I'm trying to replicate this image from Shutterstock with multiple objects to create this spiral vortex.
I looked up tutorials like this: http://vectorguru.com/tutorials/how-to-distribute-objects-along-spiral .html
Where I can put say the hearts on one spiral.
But, the image seems to be multiple spirals in a uniform and equidistant manner. I would like to know how to go about making a "vortex" with multiple objects very similar if not the same to this fashion.
You may consider another solution, such as:
1) Create the innermost circle with the objects as a Group;
2) Effect>Distort and Transform>Transform, using suitable values of Scale (Horizoantal = Vertical > 100%), Rotate (- some degrees for clockwise), Copies (number of additional circles).
The tutorial leads to a spacing that decreases (to even become negative) with increasing size, which is the opposite of what you need.
Thanks for replying.
On the image provided, I counted 10 cycles of the 4 items.
I'm trying to get the objects in a circle using the blend tool (since according to the Internet that is the way to do that in Illustrator), but I seem to be struggling.
Any ideas on how to get them in a nice circle so I can see if the rest of your steps work?
I was able to get a similar effect using the following steps:
