Lines (the Windows effect)
« on: September 15, 2009, 05:31:45 PM »
Hi All

In this tutorial I will show you how to create this effect – in order to do this I will be using two application Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop – but I am sure it can be done in the majority of modern graphics applications

Start Illustrator

And create two lines intersecting each other these can be straight or curved or a mixture of each for this example I will limit it to two curved lines

Once you have your lines select both

Now from the menu options at the top choose “Object > Blend > Blend options”

And set the option to the following

Now from the menu options at the top choose “Object > Blend > Make”

And you will end up with something like below

Now select all and copy the entire vector to the clipboard “Ctrl C”

Open up Photoshop and past the Clipboard into a new document and apply styles to your liking

This is very simple and quick but can look very impressive
