Let’s travel back in time! Back to a fun exercise in Adobe Illustrator.
In 2007 I read a blog post that taught me how to use Symbols and the 3D effect to create a really useful beach ball.
I doubt you need to create a beach ball on a weekly bases but you will be able to use this technique on different projects.
In the video I walk you through everything step-by-step. First you create a Symbol of the colors you want to use on your ball.
Use the 3D Revolve effect on a half circle to create a sphere. This will be the base for your beach ball.
This is where the two join forces to create a beach ball that you can reposition many times.
