CorelDraw Bezier Tool Outline Zebra’s Shape Picture Design Tutorial
This example mainly uses Bezier tools to sketch the shape of zebra, then uses interactive blending tools to create a three-dimensional sense, and finally combines interactive transparent tools to add texture to the background scene.
Let’s take a look at the final effect picture:
1. Bessel Tools
In this example, Bezier Tool is used to draw curves in many places. Let’s briefly analyze the drawing method of the curve.
First of all, we should understand that a curve is generally composed of several lines, and the points at the intersection of line segments are called nodes. The hidden tangents that extend from these nodes directly determine the shape of the curve. The shape of the curve varies with the angle and length of the tangent. Nodes are divided into three categories:
Smooth Node: There are two associated control handles. Changing the angle of one handle will also change the other. Changing the length of one handle will not affect the other. It is the most used node state.
The method to use the smoothing node is: click the Bezier tool in the toolbox, move the cursor to the drawing page, click the left button to determine the starting point, and then drag the mouse to the direction of the next node. At this time, a control point will appear at the starting point. At this time, press the mouse and hold it down, and observe whether the curve appears is consistent with the ideal curve. If it is not consistent with the ideal curve radian, You can move the mouse to fit the desired radian. After you feel satisfied with the adjustment, release the mouse. If the newly assigned node position does not meet the expectations, you can hold down the Alt key, move to the appropriate position, and then drag the mouse to the next node.
(2) Cuspidate node
Spike Node: There are also two control handles, but there is no connection between them. They control two different curves on both sides of the curve respectively. Dragging one end of the handle is not affected by the other end. If the curve is very complex and requires multiple curve segments, and there are many sharp curves, you can use this type of node.
Click to determine the starting point first, and then drag the mouse to the direction of the next node. At this time, a control point will appear at the starting point. Double click on the current node to convert this node into a sharp node.
(3) Symmetrical node
Symmetrical node: generally used in the middle of a symmetrical line segment. The handle of the node is in a straight line, and the other end of the handle dragged at one end is consistent with it in both direction and length.
2. Customize brushes
Sometimes, we can customize someBrushIt can achieve unexpected results if it is used flexibly.
First, prepare the shapes to be defined, and take the following simple arrangement of a shape as an example.
