It is invoice. Suppose you bring out the other articles here today bring us another mascot, as I tutorial health kind of article going on yet again, so I know you guys, love these articles and I’m very very happy because of course, I’ve been getting really good at math. Designing at least I feel like I’ve, I’ve been practicing a lot so yeah one thing I did not do my actual mascot designs.
Poor up, you guys have you have to see that I actually create your own mask on design, sketching the process and also like putting an illustrator stuff like that. It’s a put the link in description down below for you guys to read this very, very good article. Very informative. I really like it London to seem to like it as well. So of course, I’m going to continue so one thing I did not do, however, was actually apply.
The text and I kinda like finalized a logo away just because for me specifically doing mask. I designed one up. One thing that it could not do was the simplest part which I would feel feel like. Theoretically, think is the text, and I couldn’t just seem that actually, like, I guess, apply the text or how looks like it was still in the lowers. I like right here, the Texas – I guess, what’s in the actual logo, design that wasn’t added previously, it felt like it was added.
You know, like you know, like thought about. You know I mean, but this was just added like a nice quick little text in it. It works. I really like how I’m going to do this. I’m not sure, gets this today right here right now and I think the possible, using by the way, is built tilting, I think again so yeah. That’s normal, though, sponsoring my contact, you guys I’ll, go ahead and check that out. Article did really well, you guys are like really frickin love it.
So the guys I’ve got to see that article or I get any of these cool sauces. I’ll. Put that in stop! You in description a below as well because of course, Matt’s out designing you need cool text as well. So, okay, let’s get this thing going really quickly! I’m a point this out, so you can see the outside stroke that I have is actually a color. Now, there’s a specific reason. I do that just because I feel like one, it looks a little better.
In my opinion, you have like a black stroke, followed by a blue or, if he’s not blue, but a color stroke on the outside on the farther outside. Just because it kind of makes your text your text look a little bit better. In my opinion, now what I mean by that is whatever is inside, whatever colors are inside. Your actual mask are right. I have like Grey’s blues white within my mask a design and I have way on the outside.
But then, if I love white on the outside – and it would just kind of be like weird – I feel like a black stroke on the outside completely surrounding your mascot design will look like really good like it would just kind of like finish it all, and then, If you add it, your color of layer of using an extra layer of color, excuse me and then it would just kind of like fill the actual actual logo even more and then, when you fight text, it’s like this is what it looks like right without it.
So without detectives kind of looks like it looks good right, but if I add like the color on the outside and then I add the actual text, there’s just something that just looks really good. Of course, when you actually add in the text with the color in the background, so it’s the reason why I said is it because if you had like the middle here – and this is a color of blue – let’s get this with blue right.
Your text was white. Let’s just say this was white right, but then your sugar, the outside, was black as well. It would kind of look very, very messy or very, very bland. It will kind of look empty and that’s why I want to like. Let you guys know if you use two different strokes on the outside for your like your finalization um. It just looks good in my opinion. I know you guys will figure it out yourselves.
I know you guys will figure out your your specifics. Your your preferences. This is just like I’m kinda, like my preference, so I’ll just you guys do that before I start just because I want to you know if you want to get it to look exactly or at least remotely closer, structurally close as mine. That is probably one of the one of the reasons why it does not look like mine in like the retrospective, like um, the text looking like it actually was in the lower design.
So hope you guys understood that little explanation and let’s just get this thing going. If you hear my chair scooch, I am sorry, I guess it’s time for me to get a new. I think I need to just like buy a good chair like I have to stop buying those like semi are staple chairs. There’s the thing um! Okay! So I’m going to delete that and when I get this thing going so the first thing you don’t want to do.
Of course, let’s do make a back plate surrounding you know secondary color of a color on the background, so on the background of this logo here right, so I’m going to do now. Let’s take my completely done: logo design, my mascot design, McEachern logo, mascot design. Here I’m going to hold alt while I’m holding alt I’m going left click and then drag this below. So I’m a drag whatever I’m selecting this load this layer here right below this other layer.
This will make a duplicate for me within illustrator. You can do that or you can go ahead and pick the actual layer, throw it into the new page and that’ll also make a duplicate as well. So whatever works for you, it’s all good either both of them do the same exact thing possible. With this one. You’re going to do with the duplicated one you’re going to go to select the target layer, which is a circle here.
This will select everything within this folder everything Simmons layer, and that way you can move it do ever with it. So we’re going to do is we’re going to combine them all that way. This entire shape did you guys see here, is actually going to be completely filled or assuming completely like yeah basically filled without. Actually, you know having a pencil out the outside or pick out which layer is only far outside nope.
You can just basically take the entire thing. Select it go to windows task finder. What the path I’m going to do is give you guys this option. It says sheet modes right and one of the options, the first one is actually unite. So, as you can imagine, it connects all the actual sectors within the actual layer, like I said just like so when I click it, I’m a Dragonslayer out because every other layer is empty.
Just so you’re not going to get a little easier and you can see this layer right here now is just one solid, basic layer of like the entire thing on the outside, so that works perfectly for me and I’m very happy with the outcome. So that’s what I’m going to use my actual stroke on the outside now to apply the stroke, of course you’re going to want, of course, with the actual color of the year. Your your secondary color, whatever color left on the outside, and you put that on your stroke, you’re, going to turn off your filled, which is this one right here.
The first one, the one of the foreground kind of you turn that off by just clicking on none one of your stroke here, click on the show, color double garnet, and they would apply that color, like I said before, to the actual stroke, which is just nice Little blue that I got going on here and then you want to make sure you have your stroke, cable, actually up as well we’re going to windows, stroke and you’re going to make sure this is open right.
So for your alignment, shoke you’re, going to put this on the outside now the first one is centered. The second will go to the inside and the last one’s going to be outside of the liner stroke. So one make sure you click on that one, because we’re going to basically mean your your stroke is going to go only farther outside of this path. Here we’re going to be more quicker one, of course, when you put your weight up here, randoms kind of Sisyphus because already know I kind of want it at 50 or not 30.
I think ah see I think it was yep so 50. So you can see us in the outside the stroke on the outside. It wasn’t me inside. Well, you won’t be able to see it. It goes in the center. Well, you got ta put your while your your points of a lot more just because it’s actually shared. It’s kind of sharing the actual the width between the outside and the inside. That’s all I put on the outside and you can see it’s really big now, because these points are still big, cuz it’s on 50, and you can see that if I put this on 50, just like so now, it’s just on the outside looks good.
It looks clean and then we’re good to go so that just wan na make sure you guys understood that okay, not the best in illustrator, what not obviously yeah. Once you have this you’re, pretty good you’re going to make a new layer above everything, so click new layer. Take your text tool which is basically T on your keyboard right for the shortcut, and I would have put it around 500 – is pretty good.
And for me, I’m in a 4k by 4k document size, so my points might be bigger or smaller, depending on what your document size is yourself, I’m going to go ahead and put it in what is the word twist right? I believe the font that I use for this was built, something like I said previously. It’s the bolded one though, and I’m going to go ahead and just put this right here now. The cool thing about my example was, if you guys remember it, I actually have my looking like a had like a little bulge or like arcs and stuff like that.
Basically, you can do the same exact thing. It’s the same exact tool, I believe, is within Photoshop. I don’t know what it’s called a cut like a wrap to look like that. I believe, but the same thing follows here right: the envelope tool. I think that’s what’s called a Photoshop as well, so you want to click this right, make envelopes and answer these different styles. You can actually apply it to your actual text, now lower arch, pretty much does what this is like kind of gives, like almost like a shield.
Look it kind of like makes it a little bit like urban copper. Like a lot more on the bottom side, you can keep going for you, put the bend up, see once you can see you can make it really dramatic. I can do the same thing with something like bulge. You can make it bulge towards you right, that’s pretty good! If I wouldn’t do it so dramatic we’re going to do that, I would say: keep between either negative 15 or positive 15.
Just because that’s not incredibly terrible, as I’m looking pretty like kind of sloppy in the way you don’t immediate, if I put up maybe 10 %, that’s pretty good yep, but the what I want to do is actually. I want to do bold if I want to make a negative that way actually goes towards the inside. You see it came toward me. Look I put toward the negative side. You can actually go. You know farther back and I love this one just because it looks best.
In my opinion, it’s just kind of like preferred one, so we put negative or what is it? I’m just going to put a negative, intense, prettier negative 11, whatever that’s pretty good right awesome. So you can see it does like that. Look nice little simple bulge towards the like further away from us, so this looks really good. I’m happy with this and I well. Let me do now, so I make a duplicate of this actually right now so i’ma hold alt like I did before, and because they put all the way on the bottom and we’re going to keep on the bottom.
For now, I’m a whole or Suzy hide the top layer here, which is our top texts. Now, I’m going to bottom one now quickly just make this a object, so I’m go to objects, go to expand and it will see these two things here. It’s going to span, object and fill admission. Those both filled or clicks, easily check press, ok, and this will make it into like a basic will she’s like basically it’ll, make make it into a basic shape and which means like you can have like move either one.
If you want to so, if you want to get creative and stuff like that, you can um, but for this I’m going to turn off the fill turn on the stroke. Take my stroke put the same color on so basis. The same thing I’m doing on the outside of this I’m doing this in the text so outside the stroke, the line and I’m going to go to here put about 30. I think right, that’s a pretty good amount and I’m down for that.
So basically, we’ve completed the the issue of you know applying all the strokes in the background. So you don’t don’t worry about that too much anymore realistically, now can be happening, is kind of like editing the text to make sure it looks. You know good, but we’re actually not completely done. You can see these little inside here, you’re going to have to actually fix that manually. If you have a text.
That, of course, has you know more spaced out actual you know, letters in their text or in their fonts will quickly turn this back on now to make this also white and well, I’m just going to actually go ahead and get so the object as well, because Why the hell not – and I’m going to make this white and okay so basically to fix this. This ring here this back one. So you have no more like white space because we want to make sure it’s actually completely filled in.
So what you don’t want to do is going to manually. Do it yourself, so click a new layer right above that layer, I’m a bill. Click in use my pen, switches of the press p.M. If you go through the actual shortcut and it’s this tool right here and you’re just going to have to basically be pretty far in find out where this actual point ends over there and, of course, click over. Here, click and drag because this in art, now I’m going to take this point, I’m a hole, control! I’m going to hold this move this toward here and imma, say to myself once it’s pretty good, like you know, what’s pretty good ring, and this is okay, I know it’s not going to be complete long term.
That’s not really quick. I always have to be completely perfect, as this is an S now. However, the X does go below everything, so kind of like makes sense, but what I want to do is I’m going to make sure that I will click all the way around. If I cover this white space, I’m going to go around this white space right, I’m going to make sure I get this right here. I’ll make sure I get this little right here, which is.
Why are the W scuse me and the spacing between the T and the WI make sure I completely feel that as well now, I’m going to click it put it back on the field. Now I’m going to change my fill color by the way. What I’m doing the selected colors I’m using my eyedropper tool, I already have a color here, like blue white black at all, filled colors and that stroke color. So I’m going to click this or not that one okay, this one right here actually completely fills in the color, with the same exact color and the same exact fill cap as if I don’t have a keynote go into here and then Manley put the color back In I can just kind of pick a color from my mascot design and there we go so I can see now it fills in the space, and that is what you guys want.
So basically they have. You know this empty space, which looks kind of weird and does not look clean, and if you click this you can see now we actually apply the you know additional shape to it. So it fills in the actual space and it looks good now the fit again to do again, one more time toward the actual top layer. This is actually our top text. Just for you guys know if it’s white, you won’t be able to see in the thumbnail.
We’re going to make a new kind of this one we’re going to go ahead and apply the stroke to it and we’re going to apply the same stroke as this one right here, but I’m of course, I’m not make it a lot lower like 25, maybe um 25 is pretty good, but it’s on the outside, there’s not on the outside, so I’m actually make it a little less. Maybe like what do you guys think? Like 17? I think that’s pretty good, so we have to just same exact thing for this from right here.
So, let’s do that right now, so click on this end, click on this and click and drag make sure you know make an arc for yourself and then the whole control flip. This extended point here and then make sure you kind of go through once again right, see, there’s no spaces a lot more empty space here, so I actually have to make sure I go through it in D entire thing: there we go. I kind of like this made my own little path going through and then basically just like so fill it in and there we go fill it, of course, with the same exact color, and let me get something like this now.
If you guys, once you can do the same thing on the top layer, as we see this it’s empty here as well to mess it make another new layer and then do the same thing on the top, because I wanted to make sure there’s no empty spaces. Space here and there space here we want to get rid of that. We don’t want to make sure you want to make sure it’s completely beautiful and looks good and everyone’s happy just like so, and when I kind of just go through it right and then make sure you fill that in so I filled in.
Was this part right here? You can see right so now we’re pretty much almost done at the same point. We actually are done. What you can do is kinda, like you know, since we did actually make this into a object, our actual text into an object and no longer one like you know, kind of text path. You can actually click on multiple letters and then chase kids, like said whatever color, you guys want and then you’re pretty much set in stone, you’re really good to go, so they ever want to like go back into it.
Kind of like make strokes, bigger and whatnot. If you guys want to make it, you know, the blue show cumin. You want to make it bigger because to like say for you, you just want to click on it. Click on the target circle, click on the stroke and just make it go up. Fàbregas me you’re going to actually have to fix that thing you did here. These are probably like kind of like make it big with ctrl T or command here whatever or not ctrl keys, ctrl T avocado fix us again.
Just because you know you want to make sure it’s still good and I’ll, you know nice and going to evenly right, so you want to make that bigger as well. I probably have to make this one bigger as well. Ah, where is it? Is it this one? No, it’s definitely: where is it it’s in here? Isn’t it know where to go this one right here boom and make this a little dollar thicker? So it’s just kinda like a thing and we’re going to take this and kind of drag these back down, and it’s just it just depends what you guys want to do.
So I kind of didn’t like it, because it’s too thin for me, so others have fixed to show and then fix. Of course, these two things up here as well, all the other like extended like filled tasks or the filled shapes that way, we’re looking good and all that cool stuff, and basically, once you’re done, you said you’re satisfied. This looks really good and it looks like the texts also applied to the actual map that design.
So hopefully I explained as best as I could, because it was wasn’t. That was really really show. Look. I don’t know why I struggle with it. So I said you to myself this probably looking lot there who struggles with it, so I’m actually the article on it and I hope you guys enjoyed. I really really do a thing guys so much by the way for enjoying these logo design tutorials. I haven’t really enjoyed them.
Also, after-effects like I’ve been really I’ve been trying to push. As you can see, I kind of live in using After Effects and my articles, not Sony Vegas, so hope you guys enjoy I’m literally trying to super harder, they’re. So much less important. Lately I mean like 50 subscribers daily, it’s really frickin beautiful. I love you guys so friggin much, please freakin, keep smile and stay positive and stay productive guys.
