Another week, another Spoonflower fabric design contest. The theme for this contest is Painted Eggs.
I thought I’d create a bunch of 3-dimensional eggs and ‘paint’ them with some of my other fabric designs.
First, here’s how I created a 3d egg in Adobe Illustrator (version CS5).
- Draw an ellipse with the Ellipse Tool (see photo below)
- Using the Direct Selection Tool, edit the points of the ellipse to make it egg-shaped
- Delete the points on the left side of the ellipse
- Use the command Effect ==> 3D ==> Revolve to create the 3-dimentional egg
