LEVERAGE THE POWER OF GUIDES AND SNAPPING TO CREATE THIS ICON! | Use shapes and the Pen tool to create this awesome flat icon.
In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial, we will use the basic shape tools and edit them with the control bar and the Direct Selection tool to build a little base for our diamond and then use the Pen tool and Smart Guides to quickly sketch out the rest of a multi-faced diamond shape. We will also cover how to use recolor artwork to quickly change the color of the diamond all at once while maintaining the brightness difference between each face of the diamond. Check it out and I hope you enjoy it!
