Graphic design shapes are a great way to add a sense of realism and dimension to your designs, but they can be a bit tricky to create.
In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps of creating a graphic shape using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Illustrator CS6.
Illustrator is a popular graphics editor for the digital design industry, but the basics of graphic design can be learned in other applications like Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC, and InDesign CC.
If you’re interested in learning how to create shapes, we’ve got you covered.
You’ll learn how to draw lines, draw geometric shapes, and more.
In the next section, you’ll create a beautiful graphic design with a simple and straightforward shape.
Get StartedWith the basics down, let’s dive into creating a design with the Adobe Illustrators tools.
Open the Illustrator File menu, then click the Tools menu button.
You can also click on the “Options” button on the top right of the menu bar to display more options.
Select “Draw” and then “Draw in Photoshop” from the “Drawing” dropdown.
The next menu item will ask you to choose the type of drawing you want to do.
Select the “Graphic Design” option.
If your design is a vector design, you should select “Glyphical.”
If your designs are more textured and more geometric, you might want to select “Line.”
If you’re unsure which tools to choose, you can also find more information on which ones are most appropriate in the “Tools” menu.
Selecting the “Line” option will give you the option to draw a line on the drawing canvas.
Choose the first option and then the next option.
You should now see the line drawn on the canvas.
To begin, we need to draw the first line.
Choose “Line Draw” from within the “File” menu and choose a different line size than the one you drew.
The first line will be the first element in your design.
The second line will define the position of the second element.
If you want your second line to be a straight line, select “Circle Draw” and draw the line on your canvas.
You might notice that you can now see where the second line is going to end up.
Now, it’s time to draw some more lines.
Choose “Line Over” from this menu and you’ll see your new drawing area.
If the first drawing area looks a bit blurry, the second drawing area will look a bit brighter and you can adjust the size of the image so that it looks sharper.
If that’s the case, choose the second option and repeat this process.
When you’re done with the first draw, it will look something like this.
If we want to add some detail to our line, we can add a small dot to the end of the first drawn line.
To do so, choose “Line Add” from here.
To add an extra line to the middle of our design, we might choose “Polarize Line.”
Now, we have a line drawing area that is clearly defined, and the next step is to draw two more lines in our design.
Choose the “Point Drawing” option and select the second and third lines from the options.
To make a straightline line, choose one of the lines, then drag the line down from the top.
You may notice that the line is getting more and more blurry as it’s drawing in the middle.
You now have a more geometric shape that is easier to use for drawing lines.
Drawing more lines will help add depth to your design and give it a more realistic feel.
To help you make your design more realistic, we will use the “Skewed” option to create lines that have a different shape.
Select this option and you will see the shapes you selected as you drew your first two lines.
To make a line that has a different appearance, we could choose the “Drawn Line” option from the menu.
The new line will have a smoother and more rounded shape.
Choose this option to make the line more visible, and then add some more details.
To create a more rounded line, you may want to choose “Slightly Squared Line.”
To do this, you will now see a more curved line.
Select both the “Squared Line” and “Slight Squared” options.
Finally, to create an added detail, you could choose “Rounded Rectangle.”
This shape is created when the line’s edges are slightly squished.
Select these options and you should see a line created that has an appearance like this:You can see that the final shape looks a lot more realistic.
To see how the line has been drawn, we should now start to draw it in Illustrator.
To draw your first line, go to File > Open.
