  1. So something like this wouldn't work?: https://creativemarket.com/dailydesignables/106447-Gold-Foil-TexturesStyles-Ai-Bundle (The .ai files)
  2. lol I LITERALLY just downloaded a gold pic off freepik used it as a mask Thanks!
  3. So ... I could buy these and use the PNG versions of these correct? I wonder if I could find something like these for cheaper. (Metallic foil)
  4. Thanks for sharing! Works very nicely.
  5. I'm in need of gold/metallic brushes for AD. I found this: https://creativemarket.com/StudioDenmark/293364-Gold-Rush-For-Illustrator Would this work in AD? I've been able to install abr's that were made for Adobe suites just fine... but I'm not sure if these would work? I mean if they are pngs... I don't see why they wouldn't. Even if it means I just have to place it in my work as a layer and maybe use masking. If this wont work, can anyone point me to where I can get (free or for purchase) Gold/metallic brushes? (I guess what I'm looking for is "brushes"... I just need the metallic look for products I'm designing.) Thanks!
  6. Installed a few of these. Works nicely. Thank you! Attached screenshot of my experimentation:
  7. I turned my computer of and worked on the file the next day with less problems. Today, I'm working on a new file and it only froze once for like 2 seconds. I guess the solution is either restarting the program... OR restarting the computer.
  8. Well... I ended up using the node tool to make the body shape into the single shape (and delete the collar and breast area shapes) ... not sure if that was the best way to go about it but it looks okay now.
  9. Yes they are two separate shapes that I am trying to butt up next to each other (using snap to)... it snaps to each other, but there's still a gap. I want to merge the two to create a single shape.
  10. I need to do this so I can make a pixel layer to add some texture without the various shapes showing lines/edges. I';ve succewssfully done this with the rest of the image as you can see in the attached photo. But those were all single shapes. I made this alien's body in 4 different shapes but I want them completely merged. I thought I could group them and add new pixel layer... but no matter where I place the pixel layer... it's just not right. How do I merge these 4 shapes into 1 shape? Not just group them. I feel like it's an obvious answer....
  11. Just installed this. Great. Thanks for sharing!
  12. I just installed the newest update... and noticed that AD keeps crashing for like half a minute at a time. No error message (except on the header "(Not Responding)" Everything just freezes up. And then goes back to normal. Before this update, I don't recall this ever happening. It's like every two clicks I make, it freezes.
  13. Gosh, I thought I fixed it but I'm still having this problem. I did the steps above... still have a gap.
  14. Buying this today! (After updating my software.) Can't wait to see a video tutorial. I went through your tutorial on your site. Thank you. Would love to know specifically how you got those metallic looks in your example images. Beautiful! I have your texture pack. It's really awesome.
  15. Thank you. Took some fudging around but what worked for me was to turn off the "move by whole pixels" button. :)
