vector camel desert

This tutorial will take you through the process of creating a vector camel silhouette and a desert background step by step. If you like working on Illustrator, this tutorial is going to help you a lot in becoming a professional designer. You will also get to know about the hidden/special effects present in the illustrator with the help of this tutorial. So let us start this tutorial.

1. First of all, let us open a new document. To open a new document, you will go to File > New. Click on New, a new document will open. As you can see in the image above, we will first name the file. After that, we will input the size of the artboard. One important thing that we should always remember is that we need to keep the color mode in the document to RGB, so that the image looks like an original image.

Drawing Background

2. In the final image, you can see a camel and a background. We’ll first start working on the background. First, make a box on the artboard.

10. Once we have finished filling the shape with lines, let us fill it with gradient. To do so, select the shape (with lines).

11. On the left tool bar, select the Live Paint Bucket Tool.

12. With the help of this tool, click on the shape. By doing so, the shape becomes fillable. Now, with this tool, you can apply gradient in the shape.
