I hope you've learned something during this course. My name's Simona, and from all of us here at Envato Tuts+, thanks for watching.

6.1 Conclusion

Hello again. This is the course, Advanced Mesh Object in Adobe Illustrator here tuts+. I move just created something really awesome let's have a look right away. Remember when we began. We just had a sketch. So let me show you this is what we've started with. We wanted to create a cake icon here in adobe illustrator with mesh objects. So here we had a sketch that we followed. And we build up our icon. First we created the cake parts. We've created a mesh for our cake. We've created a mesh object for our cream. And let's zoom in here. We've made it look like that the cream is actually coming out on the side. And we added a raspberry filling as well. After that we created the glaze. And as you remember, we created a top part and we created the drips. And those we actually created out of rectangles. Each and every element started from a rectangle that we've turned into a gradient mesh object. And then we've transformed it. After that, we've created some awesome fruits. And you remember, we created some raspberries, blueberries, and some leafs. And here's a bigger one that we've placed in the back. So if I hide all of this again, this little sketch became, in the end, all of this. And then we even created a background. So now this is our final icon that we have, and that we've solely created in Adobe Illustrator with gradient mesh objects. I really hope that you had a lot of fun, and I really hope that I inspired you to use gradient mesh objects much more. And I know some people out there create stunning illustrations. Use a reference photo, play with the mesh objects, transform the lines, play with the handles, and used the eyedropper. It can be really fun to use them and I know sometimes it's hard and sometimes it's frustrating but the more you practice, the better you get at it and in the end you can create some awesome things with gradient mesh objects. So, I really hope you've learned some things about mesh objects here and hopefully I'll see you in the next course.
