Hi there. Have a look at my new tutorial published at Noupe.com. In the following Adobe Illustrator tutorial you will learn how to create a semi-realistic lifebuoy graphic. We’ll start with a bunch of concentric circles and some basic vector shape building techniques. Once we create the starting shapes we’ll continue with some Pathfinder options, several Warp and Gaussian Blur effects plus some basic masking techniques.

  • Difficulty: Advanced
  • Estimated Completion Time: 2 hours
  • Number of Steps: 35

This is what you’ll be creating:

    Hi there,

    I have completed half of this tutorial via the noupe site, unfortunately the second page does not seem to exist. Is there some other way I can find the second page in order to complete the tutorial? Definitely one of the best tutorials I’ve ever tried, thanks so much!
