Illustrator Tutorial: Create an Ice Cream Cart

In this tutorial, we’ll be creating a detailed illustration of an ice cream cart using Adobe Illustrator. One of the things that you will learn is how to create the main shape using several tools with the basic vector shape building techniques, some masking techniques as well as other simple effects. Also, applying different shadows and highlight effects will be learned so that our cart will look more glossy and three-dimensional. Let’s get started!

Open a New Document

1. Launch Illustrator and then press (Ctrl + N) to create a New document. Select Pixels from the Units drop-down menu, enter 730 in the width box and 752 in the height box then click on the Advanced button. Select RGB, Screen (72ppi) and make sure that the Align New Objects to Pixel Grid box is unchecked before you click OK.

Create the Base of the Cart

2. Start with drawing a 442 by 452px ellipse using the Ellipse Tool (L). Next select and remove the top anchor point of the newly created ellipse. With the help of the Convert Anchor Point Tool (Shift +C), remove two upper handles (make their length zero) of the right and the left anchor points of the black object. After you are done adjusting the shape of the black object, fill it with R=31, G=82, B=103 and then remove the stroke. Make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of the resulting shape, then add a 2px stroke (R=187, G=217, B=214) for this copy and remove the fill color. Next reselect the newly created object and go to Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -8px Offset and click OK. Then replace the existing stroke color of the newly created object with R=237, G=236, B=241 and change the stroke weight to 4px.

3. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create two rectangles with dimensions: 448 by 8px and 448 by 15px. Now select the blue shape created in step 2; hold down Shift and click on two newly created rectangles. Release Shift and click on the blue shape again (to fix its position). Next open the Align palette (Window > Align). Click on the Horizontal Align Center button and then click on the Vertical Align Top button. Reselect the red rectangle and move it 8px up; select the yellow rectangle and move it 15px up. With the Direct Selection Tool (A), select the top-left anchor point of the yellow rectangle and move it 40px to the right. Then select the top-right anchor point and move it 50px to the left. Fill the red rectangle with R=167, G=162, B=163 and remove the stroke of the resulting rectangle. Finally fill the yellow object with R=225, G=231, B=23 and remove the stroke of the resulting shape.

4. Let’s draw the handle. Pick the Ellipse Tool (L) and create a 12 by 12px ellipse. Place it in position as shown below. Fill the newly created ellipse with the radial gradient like you see in the second image. Make sure that the resulting ellipse is still selected before you go to Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -1.5px Offset and click OK, then move the newly created ellipse 1px to the right. Reselect the two ellipses created in this step and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) before you move these copies 8px down and 31px to the right. Now select the newly created bigger ellipse and replace the existing color with new radial gradient as shown in the fourth image. Next select the newly created smaller ellipse, pick the Eyedropper Tool (I) and click on the ellipse. Reselect the two small ellipses created in this step and go to Object > Blend> Blend Options. Follow the data shown in the last image and click OK then go to Object> Blend > Make (Ctrl +Alt +B). Hide this blended object behind the right big ellipse created in this step.

5. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 38 by 10px rectangle and place it in position shown below. Fill the newly created rectangle with the linear gradient like you see in the second image and then pick the Rounded Rectangle Tool. Simply click on your artboard and enter the data shown in the third image then click OK. Place the newly created rectangle in position you see in the third image. Keep this rectangle selected and double-click the Shear Tool icon from the Tool palette. In the Shear dialog box, set the Axis to Horizontal and enter 8 degrees in the Angle box before clicking OK. Next fill the resulting object with the linear gradient like you see in the fourth image. Lastly, select all objects created from step 4 and then send them to back (Ctrl +Shift +Left Square Bracket).

Create the Roof

6. Pick the Ellipse Tool (L) and create a 27 by 4.5px ellipse then place it to the position shown below. Make sure that the newly created ellipse is still selected before you duplicate it once (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F). Move the copy 4px up. Make another copy of the ellipse and then press (Ctrl +3) to hide the copy. With the Direct Selection Tool (A) + Shift, select four anchor points highlighted with black of the two remaining red ellipses and then click on “Cut path at selected anchor points” button from the Properties bar. This will make the two ellipses into four curved paths. Select and remove the two upper paths. Reselect the two remaining red curved paths and right click on the artboard then select Join section from the drop-down menu. Right click on the artboard again then select Join section. Finally press (Ctrl +Alt +3) to show the red ellipse hidden in this step.

7. Create a 16 by 2.5px ellipse using the Ellipse Tool (L) then place it in position as shown below. Make sure that the newly created ellipse is still selected so we can duplicate it by pressing Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F and move the copy 13px up. Make a copy of the ellipse and then press Ctrl +3 to hide the copy.Now repeat the same process as step 6 to remove the upper parts of the two blue ellipses. Reselect the two remaining blue curved paths then right click on the artboard and select the Join section from the drop-down menu. Right click on the artboard again then select the Join section. Press Ctrl +Alt +3 to show the blue ellipse hidden in this step.

8. Pick the Rectangle Tool (L) and create two rectangles with dimensions: 10.5 by 110px and 8.5 by 182px. Place these to the correct positions as shown in the http://www.vectordiary.com/isd_tutorials/101-ice-cream below.

9. Select the red object created in step 6 and fill the linear gradient as shown below then remove the stroke. Next select the blue object created in step 7 and the two rectangles created in step 8, then pick the Eyedropper Tool (I). Click on the shape just filled and select the red ellipse created in step 6. Fill it with the radial gradient like you see in the third image. Remove the stroke of the resulting ellipse then select the blue ellipse created in step 7 and pick the Eyedropper Tool (I). Next is to click on the ellipse just filled in this step.

10. Pick the Ellipse Tool (L) to create a 10 by 12.5px black ellipse. Place it in position shown below. Then make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of the newly created ellipse and replace its color with linear gradient as shown in the second image. Move the ellipse 2px to the right and reselect two ellipses created in this step. Go to Object > Blend > Blend Options and follow the data like you see in the third image and click then go to the Object > Blend > Make (Ctrl +Alt +B).

11. Select and group (Ctrl + G) all shapes created from step 6 to this time then go to Object> Transform > Reflect. Set the Axis to Vertical and then click Copy. Drag the copy we have just created to the right. Don’t forget to hold the Shift key on the keyboard for straight dragging.

12. Let’s place a roof on the ice cream cart. With the Rectangle Tool (M), create a 68 by 150px rectangle. Make sure that this rectangle is still selected and go to Effect > Stylize > Round Corners. Enter a 36px Radius and click OK then go to Object > Expand Appearance. Next select the top anchor point of the newly created object and move it 40px down. Using the Convert Anchor Point Tool (Shift +C) to remove two upper handles (make the length zero) of the top-right and the top-left anchor points of the black object. Once you are done adjusting the shape of the black object; reselect it and go to the Object > Transform > Move and enter a 68 in the Horizontal box and click Copy. Then press Ctrl +D twice to get the results as shown in the final image.

13. Pick the Direct Selection Tool (A) and drag the mouse to the direction of the red arrow to create a marquee as shown below and then move the selected anchor points 13px to the left. Keep working with the tool and create a marquee as shown in the third image and then move the selected anchor points 10px to the left. Create another marquee as shown in the fifth image and then move the selected anchor points 5px to the left.

14. Select three objects as shown below and go to the Object > Transform > Reflect. Set the Axis to Vertical and then click Copy to drag the copies we have just created to the right. Don’t forget to hold the Shift key on the keyboard for straight dragging. Select all black objects created from step 13 and place them in positions like you see in the third image. Fill these objects with the linear gradients as shown in the fourth and the fifth image.

15. Select all shapes created in step 14 and go to Object > Transform > Scale. Check Uniform and enter a 95 in the Scale box, click OK. Move the newly created shapes 23px down then replace the existing color of the newly created shapes with new linear gradients like you see in the second and third image. Finally reselect these shapes and hide them behind the shapes created in step 14.

16. Pick the Ellipse Tool (L) and create a 87 by 5px red ellipse. Place it in position as shown below. Make sure that the red ellipse is still selected before duplicating (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F); replace the existing stroke color of the copy with green and move it 7px up. Create a copy of the green ellipse and replace the existing stroke color of the copy with yellow. Move it 7px up. Keep the yellow ellipse selected and duplicate it; hide the copy (Ctrl +3). Focus on the third and the fourth image, remove the upper parts of the three ellipses. Before you continue, select three remaining curved paths and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F), then hide these copies. Next select the green curved path and duplicate. Select the red and green curved path; right click on the artboard and select the Join section from the drop-down menu. Right click on the artboard again and select the Join section. Repeat this process for the remaining green and yellow curved path to create the object like you see in the final image.

17. Before you continue, press Ctrl +Alt +3 to show the objects hidden in step 16. Now fill the yellow and the green object with the radial gradients as shown in the first and the second image. Next fill the yellow ellipse with the linear gradient like you see in the third image.

18. Select the yellow curved path and add 1px stroke (R=209, G=211, B=212). Next is to select the green curved path and add 1px stroke (R=35, G=31, B=32). Then select the red curved path and add 1px stroke (R=241, G=242, B=242). Reselect these three curved paths and apply the Width Profile 1 for them to create an object and fill it with the radial gradient as shown in the second and third image.

19. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create two rectangles with dimensions: 148 by 28px and 167 by 38px then place them in position like you see in the first and the second image. Select the bottom-left anchor point of the black rectangle and move it 13px to the left. Next select the bottom-left anchor point of the blue rectangle and move it 18px to the left. With the Pen Tool (P), create a red object as shown in the fourth image then hide this object behind the blue object created in this step. Now select three objects created in this step and fill them with R=255, G=255, B=255 and add a 1px stroke (R=205, G=199, B=213). Finally reduce the Opacity of the resulting shapes to 79%.

20. With the Rectangle Tool (M) create a 193 by 46px rectangle then place it in position shown below. Now select the biggest shape created in step 19 and make a copy using Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F of it. Keep this copy selected and hold down Shift. Click on the red rectangle created in this step and then open the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder) and click on the Minus Front button. Finally remove the stroke of the resulting shape and hide this shape behind the biggest shape created in step 19.

Create some Stacks of Ice Cream Cones

21. Let’s move on to the cone. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create 18.5 by 50.5px rectangle. Next with the Pen Tool (P), create a black object and select the red rectangle. Remove the red one and select the black object. Fill it with the linear gradient as shown in the third image.

22. With the Pen Tool (P), create two curved paths and reselect these paths to add 1px stroke (apply the linear gradient across stroke). Make sure that the resulting paths are still selected before you go to the Object > Blend > Blend Options. Follow the data like you see in the third image and click OK. Go to Object > Blend > Make (Ctrl +Alt +B). Keep the blended object selected and go to the Object > Transform > Transform Each. In the Transform Each dialog box, enter a -32 degrees Angle and check the Reflect X in the Options section then click Copy. Reselect two blended objects created in this step and group (Ctrl +G) them. Make two copies (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F, Ctrl +F) of this group and place these copies in different positions. Name them “Texture_01” and “Texture_02”. These groups will be needed later. Now select the shape created in step 21 and duplicate it then bring the copy to front (Ctrl +Shift +Right Square Bracket). Keep this copy selected; hold Shift and click on a group created in this step then go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7). Finally select this clipping set and the shape created in step 21 and group them.

23. With the Pen Tool (P), create an object and then fill it with the linear gradient as shown in the http://www.vectordiary.com/isd_tutorials/101-ice-cream below. Next select the group “Texture_01” and rotate this group an angle of about 15 degrees then place it to the position like you see in the third image. Now select the shape created in this step and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) then bring the copy to front (Ctrl +Shift +Right Square Bracket). Keep this copy selected; hold down the Shift and click on the group “Texture_01”, then go to the Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7). Finally select and group all objects created in this step.

24. Repeat the same process as the step 23 to create another part of the cone.

25. Pick the Pen Tool (P) and create three curved paths. Once your paths are drawn, select the red path and add 1px stroke (apply the linear gradient within stroke as shown in the second image). Next select the two remaining paths and add 1px stroke (apply the linear gradient within stroke as shown in the third image). Now reselect the three paths created in this step and apply the Width Profile 2 for them. Continue the Pen Tool (P) and create a curved path like you see in the fourth image. Select the newly created path, add a 3px stroke (R=72, G=16, B=0) and apply the Width Profile 1 for the resulting path then hide this path behind the group created in the step 24.

26. With the Pen Tool (P), create two objects and then fill them with the linear gradients as shown in the http://www.vectordiary.com/isd_tutorials/101-ice-cream below.

27. Select all objects created from step 22 to step 25 and go to Object > Transform > Reflect. Check Vertical and click Copy. Next move the copies 8px up and hide them behind the group created in step 23. Repeat the same process to create four stacks of ice cream cones and then place them to the positions as shown in the fourth and the fifth image below.

28. At this point, your ice cream cart should look like this:

Create Stacks of Plastic Glasses

29. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 19 by 25px rectangle then fill it with R=36, G=154, B=191. Select the top-left anchor point of the newly created rectangle and move it 3px to the right. Next select the top-right anchor point and move it 3px to the left. Continue the process with the Pen Tool (P) by creating two objects. Once your objects are drawn, select the black object and fill it with R=87, G=187, B=204 and apply a 2px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting shape. Select the magenta object and fill it with R=128, G=225, B=255, then apply a 1px Gaussian Blur effect. Now select the first shape created in this step; make a copy and bring it to front. Keep the newly created shape selected; hold down Shift and click the two shapes with blur effect applied in this step. Go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7). Pick Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 20 by 1px rectangle. Fill it with R=61, G=135, B=158 and place the resulting rectangle in position as shown in the final image. Finally select and group (Ctrl +G) all shapes created in this step. We are done with the plastic glass for the moment.

30. Likewise, create a plastic glass with another color and create two stacks of plastic glasses. Place them in positions shown in the fourth image below. Your ice cream cart should look like the fourth image.

31. Select and group (Ctrl + G) all objects created from step 2 then rotate this group to an angle of -2 degrees.

Create the Wheels

32. It’s now time to create the wheels of the ice cream cart. Pick the Ellipse Tool (L) and create a 166 by 166px ellipse. Before proceeding any further, you must first show the Rulers (View > View Rulers > Show Ruler) or (Ctrl +R). Now let’s move on. Drag a horizontal and vertical guide from the Rulers (if the guides locked, go to the View > Guides >Lock Guides) or (Ctrl +Alt + ;). Select the red ellipse, hold down Shift, click on two newly created guides, release the Shift and then click on the red ellipse again (to fixed its position). Next open the Align palette (Window > Align) and click the Horizontal Align Center button and click the Vertical Align Center button.

33. With the Line Segment Tool (\), create a vertical line with length of 83px, a 2px stroke (apply the linear gradient within stroke) and no fill. Reselect this vertical line, hold down Shift, click the red ellipse, release the Shift and click the red ellipse again. Next click the Horizontal Align Center button from the Align palette and click the Vertical Align Top button. Now select the vertical line, pick the Rotate Tool (R) and hold down Alt then click the intersection point of the two guides created in step 32. In the Rotate dialog box, enter a 15 degrees Angle and click Copy then press (Ctrl +D) twelve times to get the results as shown in the final image.

34. Select eleven lines as shown in the first image, pick the Reflect Tool (O) and hold down the Alt; click the vertical guide. In the Reflect dialog box, check the Vertical and click Copy. Now select and group (Ctrl + G) all lines created from step 33. Next make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of this group and rotate the copy to an angle of -10 degrees.

35. Select the red ellipse and bring it to front; go to Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -68px Offset and click OK then replace the existing stroke color of the newly created ellipse with blue. Keep the blue ellipse selected and go to Object> Path > Offset Path. Enter a -1px Offset and click OK. Next fill the two blue ellipse with the gradients like you see in the third and the fourth image.

36. To add some details, create a black shape as shown below then apply a 2px Feather effect for this shape. Continue to create four white shapes like you see in the third image and apply a 1px Gaussian Blur effect for these shapes. Now select the bigger ellipse created in step 35, make a copy then bring the copy to front. Make sure that the newly created ellipse is still selected; hold down Shift and click the four white shapes with blur effect applied in this step then go to the Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7).

37. Select and group (Ctrl + G) all shapes created from step 35 then go to the Object > Transform > Scale. Check Uniform and enter a 63 in the Scale box and click Copy.

38. Select the red ellipse created in step 32 and go to Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a 2px Offset and click OK. Open the Offset Path dialog box again and enter a 3px Offset, click OK. Before you continue, select the biggest ellipse and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F); hide the copy (Ctrl +3). Now select the smallest red ellipse and make a copy. Keep this copy selected; hold down Shift and click on the biggest red ellipse. Open the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder) and click the Minus Front button; fill the resulting object with the linear gradient. Next select the two remaining red ellipses and click the Minus Front button then fill the resulting object with the linear gradient.

39. Press Ctrl +Alt +3 to show the hidden red ellipse in step 38 then bring it to front. Keep this red ellipse selected and go to the Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a 10px Offset and click OK. Open the Offset Path dialog box again and enter a 2px Offset, click OK then press Ctrl +3 to hide this newly created ellipse. Now reselect the two remaining red ellipses; open the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder) and click on the Minus Front button. Fill the resulting object with R=30, G=19, B=15. Keep the resulting shape selected and go to the Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -3px Offset and click OK. Replace the existing color of the newly created shape with R=88, G=62, B=43 and apply a 2px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting shape.

40. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 7.5 by 10px rectangle. With the help of the Direct Selection Tool (A), select the bottom-left anchor point of the newly created rectangle and move it 2px to the right. Next select the bottom-right anchor point and move it 2px to the left. Before you continue, press Ctrl +Alt +3 to show the hidden red ellipse in step 39. Make sure that this ellipse is still selected; hold down the Shift and click on the object created in this step. Release the Shift and click the red ellipse again. Open the Align palette (Window> Align) and click the Horizontal Align Center button then click the Vertical Align Top button. Now fill the object created in this step with the linear gradient. Next reselect this new shape, pick the Rotate Tool (R) and hold down Alt. Click the intersection point of the two guides created in step 32. In the Rotate dialog box, enter a 6 degrees Angle and click OK. Press Ctrl +D several times to get the results as shown in the final image.

Click OK then open the Offset Path dialog box. Enter a 3px Offset and click OK then open the Offset Path dialog box again. Enter a 8px Offset and then click OK.

42. With the Add Anchor Point Tool (+), add four anchor points highlighted with blue. Next select four newly created anchor points and click the “Cut Path at Selected Anchor Points” button from the Properties bar. This make the smallest and the biggest ellipse become four curved paths. Select the two lower paths and remove them. Select the other two remaining paths and right click on the artboard. Select the Join section from the drop-down menu. Next right click on the artboard again, then select the Join section. Focus on the fourth image; add two anchor points highlighted with blue for the newly created object. Reselect these two anchor points and move them 5px down. Click on the “Convert Selected Anchor Points to Smooth” button from the Properties bar. With the help of the Direct Selection Tool (A), adjust the handles of the two newly created anchor points to get the results as shown in the fifth image.

43. Select the object created in step 42 and fill it with the radial gradient. Keep the resulting shape selected and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) then replace the existing color of the copy with R=230, G=231, B=232. Apply a 7px Feather effect for the resulting shape.

44. Select the two remaining red ellipses and add 1px stroke (R=22, G=58, B=83) then press Ctrl +G to group these two ellipses. Now select the shape with the Feather effect applied in step 43 and make a copy before bringing the copy to front. Keep this copy selected; hold down Shift and click on the group created in this step and then go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7).

45. Select and group (Ctrl + G) all objects created from step 41 and keep this group selected. Pick the Rotate Tool (R) and hold down Alt then click on the intersection point of the two guides created in step 32. In the Rotate dialog box, enter a -2 degrees Angle and click OK. Finally select and group (Ctrl + G) all objects created from step 32 then place this group to the position like you see in the third image.

46. Select the group created in step 45 and make a copy. Move the newly created group 20px up and move it 10px to the right. Finally send this group to back (Ctrl +Shift +Left Square Bracket).

47. With the Pen Tool (P) and the Ellipse Tool (L), create two objects as shown below and fill the red object with R=97, G=95, B=92.

48. Continue the process with the Pen Tool (P) and create a curved path. Reselect the newly created path and add 7px stroke (R=209, G=211, B=212). Keep this path selected. Open the Appearance palette (Window > Appearance) and click on the Add New Stroke button (at the left-bottom corner of the Appearance palette). This will add a second stroke for your path. Fill it with R=255, G=255, B=255 and change the stroke weight to 2px. Make sure that the path created in this step is still selected before you apply a 2px Gaussian Blur effect. Now select the shape created in step 47 and make a copy, then bring the copy to front. Keep this copy selected; hold down Shift and click the path created in this step. Go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make (Ctrl +7) and select the ellipse created in step 47 and fill it with the radial gradient like you see in the final image. Finally select and group all objects created from step 47.

49. Select the group created in step 48 and go to Object > Transform > Transform Each. Follow the data as shown below and click Copy. Make sure that Selection Tool (V) is still active; double-click on the newly created group and double-click on the clipping set then select the white path. Open the Appearance palette (Window/ Appearance) and replace the existing stroke color of this path as shown in the second image. Next double-click twice on anywhere outside of the group just edited. Reselect the group created in this step and hide it behind the group created in step 48. Finally select these two groups and hide them behind the ice cream cart.

50. At this point your ice cream cart should look like this:

51. Pick the Pen Tool (P) and create an object like you see in the image below. Once your object is drawn, reselect it and go to Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -4px Offset and click OK. Continue with the Pen Tool (P) to create a red object then select the red object as well as the bigger yellowobject. Add a 3px stroke (R=248, G=248, B=249) and apply the Width Profile 2 for the resulting objects. Finally select the remaining yellow object and fill it with R=248, G=248, B=249.

52. Now pick the Type Tool (T), open the Character palette (Window > Type > Character) and set the data as shown below. Next click on your artboard and add the “Ice Cream” piece of text. Rotate this text an angle of about -2 degrees and then place it in position like you see in the image below. Now select and group (Ctrl + G) all objects created from step 2. The ice cream cart is ready and looks like the second image below.

Adding the Shadows for the Cart

53. To give a more realistic look, it is now time to add some shadows for the ice cream cart. Start by drawing a 304 by 14px rectangle using the Rectangle Tool (M). Place this rectangle to the position as shown below. Next fill the newly created rectangle with the linear gradient like you see in the second image. Finally apply a 5px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting rectangle and then hide it behind the ice cream cart.

54. With the Ellipse Tool (L), create a 156 by 7px ellipse. Reselect this ellipse and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F). Place the two newly created ellipses to the positions shown below. Fill these two ellipses with the linear gradient and apply a 2px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting ellipses and then hide them behind the ice cream cart.

55. With the Rectangle Tool (M), create a 85 by 5px rectangle and make a copy of this rectangle. Place the two newly created rectangles to the positions as shown below. Fill these two rectangles with the linear gradient like you see in the second image. Finally apply a 2px Gaussian Blur effect for the resulting rectangles and then hide them behind the ice cream cart.

56. At this point your ice cream cart should look like in the next image:

Create the Background

57. We’re done with the ice cream cart! It’s time to make the background. Pick the Rectangle Tool (M) and create a 730 by 752px rectangle. Fill this rectangle with the radial gradient as shown below. The last thing to do is place the ice cream cart into the newly created background.

Congratulations! Your Ice Cream Cart is done!
