How To Create Vintage Vector Textures
This website gives a tutorial of how to give illustrations a retro appearance. Ben Steers gives advice on techniques on Illustrator of how to make graphics look as if they are 50’s and 60’s illustrations and animations.
One of the things I like best about this trick is that you can create your own drawings, scan them in, and give them this effect using Illustrator.
Tools You Will Use:
– Pen Tool: You start this trick off by tracing your scanned drawing with the pen tool (ADDITIONAL PEN TOOL INFORMATION)
– Strokes: This is an effect to add to the outlines of certain lines created by the pen tool (ADDITIONAL STROKE INFORMATION)
– Align Tool: You can create texture by making a series of dots using this tool (ADDITIONAL ALIGN TOOL INFORMATION)
