Recolor Artwork
With the recolor artwork feature in Adobe Illustrator, you can extend the versatility of your art by quickly developing and refining new color pallets. My name is Laura Coyle, I'm a freelance illustrator, and in this short project we'll take on a practical usage of this tool, by recoloring an existing piece of art to repurpose it for a new design. The recolor artwork dialog box is packed with features, I'll show you how to work with its intuitive color wheel and its color row interface and I'll help you unlock its power. We'll be exploring other color features in Illustrator too, like the color guide panel and Adobe color CC these are great tools for developing color groups quickly. And you'll stay inspired with fresh color resources that you can access from right here inside of Illustrator. Our focus will be on artwork for print, and so I'll also touch on using PANTON libraries in Illustrator so you can make sure your color choices will print beautifully. I'll assume you know the basics of working with color swatches in Illustrator, but if you need a refresher, check out the class Illustrator CC Building on the Fundamentals. The recolor artwork feature in Illustrator is perfect for fabric designers, art licensing artists, and anyone who needs to keep the color inspiration flowing. So open the exercise file for this class and we'll get started in the next video.
