Pearl in Adobe Illustrator
In today’s tutorial, you will learn to make Pearl in Adobe Illustrator. Pearls are available in many colors and in today’s tutorial, we will make a Powder Rose Pearl.?
Tools that will be used are the Ellipse Tool, Gradient Tool, and Blend Tool. For effects, we will use Outer Glow and Drop Shadow Effect.
Now to make the Pearl Vector, open Adobe Illustrator, and create a new document.
Select the Rectangle Tool from the Tool Panel and draw a rectangle to create the background. Fill the rectangle with the color code #ebd6e0 and disable the strokes.
Now lock the background so that it doesn’t get selected while creating the Pearl. To lock the background, first, select the background and then press Ctrl + 2.
Select the Ellipse Tool or hit L (Shortcut key). Draw a circle of size 223.636 X 223.636 pt.
Now change the fill color of the circle. Fill the circle with a gradient and double click on the Gradient Tool.
With the help of this tool, we will make Pearl Gradient.
In the Gradient Panel, change the Gradient Type to Radial, and in the slider double click on the black color and change the color to color code #9d6378. The location of the slider pointer will be at 68.38%.
Select Ellipse Tool and draw another circle of size 183.969 X 183.969 pt.
Fill this circle also with a gradient and open the Gradient Panel.
In Gradient Panel, the Gradient Type will be Radial and the colors in the slider will be white, and the color code #993366.
The Aspect Ratio will be 200% and the location of the slider pointer will be 41.36%.
Select the second circle and place it above the first circle but at the center. Place it slightly above the center point.
Select both the circles and go to the Menu Bar. In the Menu Bar, select Object and place the cursor on Blend and then click on Make.
Set the Specified Steps to 50.
Your Powder Rose Pearl is taking the shape.?
Now we will add some effects to the Pearl Illustration.
Select the Pen Tool and draw 2 small white color arcs.
Select both the arcs and reduce their opacity to 31%. Now go to the Menu Bar and select Effect. Place the cursor on Stylize and select Outer Glow.
When you will click on Outer Glow, the Outer Glow dialogue box will appear on the artboard. In that dialogue box, set the Mode as Normal and the color of the glow will be white. Click OK.
Again select both the arcs and apply the Outer Glow Effect with the same settings as above.
Select one arc and reduce it size and then place both the arcs on the Pearl. (See the below image)
Now we will apply the Drop Shadow Effect. Select the Pearland click on Effect in the Menu Bar. Then place the cursor on Stylize and select Drop Shadow.
In the Drop Shadow dialogue box, change the color of the shadow to grey (#808285). The Mode of the effect will be Normal. Set the X Offset to -22 pt and Y Offset to 9 pt.
Check the Preview and click OK.
