Illustrator Tutorial: Create a Colorful Water World with Fish and Sea Weed

08 Oct

This tutorial shows detailed step-by step guide to create three different kinds of colorful fish, sea weed, vector bubble, and nice background full with glowing rays.

To make all the elements of Water World image you’ll need Adobe Illustrator. After being designed in that Vector Program, all sea creatures, bubbles and rays will be arranged and processed in Adobe Photoshop.

Any CS version of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator is applicable to accomplish this tutorial. The Photoshop part includes mainly Layer Styles, Blend Mode and Gradients. As for the Illustrator, we’ll be using Mesh Tool, Clipping Mask, default Patterns, Blending Object, Transformations and lots of Gradients and effects.

Hope that you won’t be repelled by these a bit more than hundred steps. Actually this is 5 in 1 tutorial as it could be divided into five parts- each of them a separate tut, i.e. one tutorial for glowing rays drawing, three tutorials dedicated to fish drawing and one tutorial on making bubble and sea weed.

    I was basically wondering if you ever considered changing the design of your web site? Its well written; I love what youve got to state. But maybe you could include a a bit more in the way of content so people could connect to it better. You have got a great deal of wording for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you could space it out better?
