Use Illustrator’s Pathfinder to Create Symmetrical Birds

Published:  July 29, 2014    Category:  2D Graphics, Learning, Software    Published by:  GriT  
Nice step-by-step tutorial from Veerle Pieters, showing you how to create simple symmetrical objects, using mostly ellipses, straight lines and rectangles in combination with the Pathfinder options in Illustrator.

Setting up your document

First things first. Before we start drawing, we have to do some small preparations to make sure our document is set up properly. When you create a new document (File > New), you can choose to work in RGB mode, and to use pixels as unit. As for dimension you can choose anything that fits for you. I've just used a dimension that works well for the layout of my blog. Under the Advanced options make sure to uncheck Align New Objects to Pixel Grid. This is handy for the creation of icons or other GUI design elements that need to end up pixel sharp, but leaving it checked can cause imperfections in our illustration. So to avoid any annoyances it's very important that this option is unchecked before getting started.
