    This video is incredible! I was engaged the entire 45 minutes; I had wanted something where I could watch and learn different things about Illustrator without necessarily having to follow along myself and this was perfect. Thank you for making these!

    I'm clearly a beginner to illustrator but this tutorial was so useful and helpful to me I was able to create this which also gave me more insight on the program and its tools. Bravo! Took two days for me to make this but I surely have this in the bag!

    You're the Andrew Kramer of Illustrator tutorials. Nice vids!

    I like how we don't have to download any big files, I like it when it's all from scratch– helps me learn more, lol.

    Anyways, I've been using Illustrator and Indesign for a while now, but I never really went in depth with them (especially Ai). I loved this tutorial– thanks!

    Did you ever think about animating this project? I think you could do a lot of interesting effects with it.

    Couldn't create the opacity mask 🙁 So I cut the ring into two and adjusted differently.

    Hello, I'm having a problem with the Ellipse tool, when you use it on the background at 2:30 I don't have the same result, my circle is ""flat"", the effect is not like your, you have multiples circles that make a good effect and I just have something like a flat ball with same textures everywhere, how can i solve this please ?

    Thanks for the Great Tutorial y make the full planet. Thanks!!!

  • Reply Relax Edits April 20, 2019 at 2:31 pm

    So I did exactly the same thing as you did but it doesn't even show me 580×580 circle , it has a white stroke and I did what you did so that tells that I just should give up on life.

    first time using illustrator and this video was perfect in showing how to use tools in the program and apply them to create an illustration, this taught me a lot about the program. thank you:)

  • Reply SheerBeautyVlog May 5, 2019 at 9:48 pm

    Great tutorial I had a little bit of trouble at one part but I was able to fix it on my own. One thing could you please talk a little slower at some parts I would have to rewind because you were talking to fast and I would miss what you were saying. This is my first video that I have watched from you and I plan to watch more! I learned the basics of illustrator in school and I'm planning on learning more during my break from school.

    This tutorial is by far the most helpful I've found. You explain everything so clearly. I find a lot of people doing tutorials get bored and skip over certain parts making it hard to follow but your tutorial is great! I'm about to hit the subscribe button. Thank you for taking the time to make this tutorial

    Gradient Blend did not work for me. No multicolored hue. Simply a gradient background blue from the edge to a lighter blue in the middle. (???)

    1:24 ctrl + c, delete, ctrl + v; if your screen is aligned dead center with the canvas the rectangle would just be pasted in the center and cover the whole white space.

  • Reply Besanth May 26, 2019 at 10:59 am

    Great tutorial. I used to use Adobe Illustrator CS6 a lot when I was in college 3 years back because I had two subjects called Typography & Graphic Designing. Then once those were over, I stopped using Illustrator for a long time, but recently decided to pick it back up again and this tutorial is the first I used to brush up on my skills. Had some hiccups along the way (cause the software was acting up and not giving me certain options I needed to use) but I found my way around it. Thank you for the step by step tutorial. Much appreciated!

    I'm just starting out on how to create things on illustrator so I thought I might try this one because its 45 mins and I thought this was for people new to illustrator but that is not the case 😂 I got confused on the layers because there was too many and he talks way too fast 😂 I guess I'll make this again after I'm used to Illustrator

    Aligning the objects is extremely frustrating, when I click any of the align options none of them do anything! They either stay in place or when I select multiple objects they don’t align to the center of the project.
