Trick for Redrawing Hand Drawn Images in Adobe Illustrator CC

Hi there in this video, we're going to show you how to do this. Put in a draw an image in the background, faded out. Lock it make a new layer like this all instamatic lee with one of the illustrator features because what I tend to do is say this drawing here, I draw it in my notebook. I take a photo with my phone just because I'm better withdrawing often with you know with a pen then in illustrated directly. And then I just redraw in illustrator but I wanna stick it on its own layer that I can redraw over the top. Maybe wash it out a little bit. Alright, let's go and see how to do that in illustrator. Okay, so first up we're going to make a new document. We're gonna go file new. Um We are going to go to print and you can use either a four or US letter depending on where you are. Um We're gonna use letter and I'm gonna go portrait. And the big thing to just make sure when you are using kind of like this new dialog box that illustrator comes with is down the bottom here. There's this one...

called advanced options. Okay. And by default, anything under the print tab wants to B C M Y K. Web, you'll see over here to be Rgb and the resolution needs to be 72. So that's just something you need to be aware of when you are picking from. These defaults. I use print mainly because I like the shape of like I'm used to the shape us letter okay or a four. I'm used to the shape. So I just want to start with that even though it might be going for digital Okay. Or going out to web, you just gotta make sure whenever you change it, go into here and say actually I want to make sure it's RGB if I wanted to be RgB. Okay, now, just so you know, if you are kind of you know, not really included about RgB versus the N. Y. K. It's best to use RGB to get started with because you seem like a is a limited color range. Okay. It doesn't have the really strong greens or like Madonna pink snow, that real kind of like fluorescent colors. So it's best to work in RGB and maybe switch it out to seem like a later on, it becomes a little bit more washed out. But starting with RGB is generally how I work. The other thing as well as you pick web, you probably want to switch it up to maybe 300 picks PP. I Okay to get the resolution really high. You can change this later on. It's no big deal, but it's just something to be aware of when you are playing around with the new document window. Cool. Alright, let's click create, It doesn't really matter as long as it's an RGB and the next thing I'm gonna do is put that kind of washed out drawing right? So I do my drawings in my book, take a photo with my phone and then just kind of like jam it on the page. Put it on its own layer, wash it out. Make a new layer and draw on the top of that. Okay, so that is a drama. Okay. It takes a little while so there's an easy shortcut to do it. So if you've got a file place, okay, I'm going to bring in in your exercise files. There's one called curvature tool, find that one and down the bottom here. You probably can't see it click on the word options and just click on this one that says template. This does all the work for us. Let's click place. So it brings in our file and you'll see in our layers panel. So you might be on properties switch two layers. Is that it's created a layer. It's locked, it it's faded this out for us and created a new layer that we can draw on. All Just super quick and easy when you've drawn it, you can turn this off. Okay, Because you probably don't want to go to print. So yeah, that's just a really quick little getting started trick. Alright, let's get into the next video where we start drawing these guys using some of the new tools in illustrator. All right. We'll see you there
