ARTIS212: Adobe Illustrator Tutorial Video 5: Appearance Panel, Patterns, Brushes

In this Tutorial we will cover the Appearance Panel which allows us to layer several different fills and strokes on one object, Take a look at extant Pattern libraries, and brushes.

We will also look at how to simulate a hand drawn appearance, or customize the appearance of a stroke through the use of the wrinkle tool and the width tool.

NOTE: Sometimes the Eyedropper tool does not transfer the entire appearance by default. To change the eyedropper options double-click on the eyedropper icon. In the window that pops up check mark the word Appearance in both columns and hit OK and it will work!
