Polygon Background in Adobe Illustrator
In Adobe Illustrator, we can create an abstract background with the help of shape tools and effects. We have selected the Polygon Shape today to create a background in Adobe Illustrator.
So, in today’s tutorial, you will learn to create Polygon Background in Adobe Illustrator.
Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a new document. Now follow step by step–
Select the Rectangle Tool from the Tool Panel and draw a rectangle the same as the size of the artboard.
Turn off the Stroke color and Fill the rectangle with any gradient.
Select the rectangle drawn and press Ctrl +2 to lock the layer.
Now select the Polygon Tool from the Tool Panel and change the Fill color to white. Draw a small Polygon shape at the corner of the rectangle. (See the image below)
Select the Polygon shape drawn and press and hold the Alt key. Drag the shape to create a duplicate copy of it.
Similarly, create more duplicate copies and fill the whole artboard with Polygon shape.
Let all the Polygon shapes be selected and press Ctrl + G to group them. Then press Shift + Ctrl + F10 to open the Transparency Panel.
In the Transparency Panel, reduce the Opacity of the Polygon shapes to 60%.
Select the Group Selection Tool from the Tool Panel.
Now press and hold Shift Key and select a few random Polygon shapes and increase their Opacity to 80%.
Similarly, select Polygon shapes randomly then either increase or decrease their Opacity.
Select the group of Polygon shapes and press Ctrl + C to copy it and then press Ctrl + F to paste it in the Front.
Increases the sizes of the shapes pasted in front and rotate them to give an effect.
Now select both the layers of the group of Polygon shapes and change the blend mode to Soft Light.
Now unlock the layer which we had locked in Step 1. Press Ctrl + A and select the Shape Builder Tool from the Tool Panel.
Press and hold the Alt key and remove all the shapes which are outside the artboard.
