NSL WEEK 314- Adobe Illustrator “3D Ribbon and 3D Tennis Ball”

I’m having fun trying out different techniques with 3D in Adobe Illustrator.

Check out the video above to see me create a 3D Ribbon effect and a 3D Tennis Ball. Big thanks to Carlos Garro for showing me the way!

****

This is what we’re making in the video.

****

Here is some simple geometry for my ribbons to wrap around. Just make sure to use the “Invisible Geometry” option.

****

If you setup the ribbons at an angle, it will look more like a spiral.

****

Then you can use the 3D Revolve Options to reposition your artwork instead of redrawing.

****

This basic shape is what I used to make my sphere look like a tennis ball.

****

Adjust the size of the symbol to get the right look.
