hi guys am pretty new to illustrator just got it because i need to make some t-shirts out of drawings
so i have been busy with the pen tool and am just wondering how you for instance make a hole in youre path (sorry if its pourly explained dunno all the therms) for instance i uploaded a picture i want the hole in the R to be part of the it so if i use a 3d effect you see the shade and on the S i need the upper end to overlap and the one down underneath. hope you guys understand dont really know how to explain in english sorry :s
thanks alot in advance cheers!
For the R you may select both paths (outer and inner) and Object>Compound Path>Make.
For the S you may:
1) Cut the path at the ends at either side of the central part, using the Scissors Tool on an Anchor Point on both sides of the fill,
2) Move the newly formed end paths below and beneath the central part, this is done in the Layers palette/panel by dragging up/down;
3) Group to keep the S together.
cool man i just managed to do the R and the down part of the S still screwing around with the top part but i guess practice makes perfect!
thanks alot for the info mate cheers!!
You are welcome, CappuciniBaby.
