In this Adobe Illustrator Tutorial, we will illustrate a landscape as shown below. I know, we all look at the beautiful illustrations on Behance or Dribble and wonder if we could ever create these things. We obviously could, but we’ll need a lot of practice and we’ll need to know to how to use the tools required to create that stunning illustration. I believe, the best way to learn a tool is to learn while creating something. This way, you learn something new, and have a beautiful completed project in the end! I have loads of tutorials on how to use Illustrator, and I think you should definitely check it out!
Ok, let’s get back to the tutorial. I picked a landscape for this tutorial just because I paint landscapes quite often with my watercolor set. Drawing digitally sounded like a good idea! I have tried to cover a lot of how-tos, trips and tricks in this tutorial. Here are a few of the things you will learn to use in this tutorial:
- Pen tool
- Draw inside an object
- Transform tools
- Applying Shadows
- Rotating objects with an anchor point
- Arranging objects
- And many more!
I have used a bright color palette for this tutorial. If you want to use the same colors, just download this image and open in illustrator, use the eye dropper tool (press i on your keyboard) to pick the colors. Alternatively, you can also use these hex codes:
