How to create a realistic Fishbowl in Adobe Illustrator

In the following Illustrator tutorial you will learn how to create a realistic fishbowl illustration. For starters you will learn how to create the main shapes using basic tools and vector shape building techniques. Next you will learn how to create fishbowl decorations such as sand, aquatic plants and aquarium rocks. Moving on, you will learn how to create an aquarium fish using some simple shapes and basic effects. Finally you’ll learn how to create a nice background.

Create a New Document

1. Launch Illustrator and then press (Ctrl + N) to create a New document. Select Pixels from the Units drop-down menu, enter 615 in the width box and 610 in the height box then click on the Advanced button. Select RGBScreen (72ppi) and make sure that the Align New Objects to Pixel Grid box is unchecked before you click OK.

Create the Fishbowl

2. Pick the Ellipse Tool (L) and create a 350 by 80px black ellipse. Keep the black ellipse selected and go to the Object > Transform > Scale… In the Scale dialog box, check the Non-Uniform. Enter a 75 in the Horizontal box and 67 in the Vertical box, then click Copy. Replace the existing stroke color of the newly created ellipse with blue and then move it 308px up.



3. Make a yellow rectangle of 263 by 312px size using the Rectangle Tool (M), then place it to the correct position as shown below. With the Direct Selection Tool (A), select the bottom-left anchor point of the yellow rectangle and move it 41px to the left. Next select the bottom-right anchor point and move it 41px to the right. Reselect the yellow object and make a copy (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F) of it, then replace the existing stroke color of the copy with red. Now pick the Convert Anchor Point Tool (Shift +C), click on the top-left anchor point of the red object, hold mouse and drag it to the left while holding Shift. Next select the left handle of the top-left anchor point and drag it down. Keep working with the Convert Anchor Point Tool, click on the bottom-left anchor point of the red object, hold mouse and drag it to the right while holding Shift. Next select the left handle of the bottom-left anchor point and drag it up. At this point your red object should looks like in the last image.



4. After you are done adjusting the shape of the red object, reselect it and double-click on the Reflect Tool icon from the Tool bar. In the Reflect dialog box, check the Vertical and click Copy. Make sure that the copy is still selected, hold down the Shift, click on the yellow object created in the step 3, then release the Shift and click on the yellow object again (to fixed its position). Open the Align palette (Window > Align) and click on the Horizontal Align Left button. Reselect the two red objects, then open the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder) and click on the Unite button. Finally select and remove the yellow object.



5. Select the blue ellipse created in the step 2 and go to the Object > Path > Offset Path… Enter a 1px Offset and click OK. Replace the existing stroke color of the newly created ellipse with turquoise and move it 7px down. Reselect the turquoise and the black ellipses, then make two copies (Ctrl +C, Ctrl +F, Ctrl +F) of them. Now select the red object created in the step 4 and make a copy of it. Keep the copy selected, hold down the Shift and click on a copy of the turquoise ellipse. Open the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder) and click on the Unite button. Still having the resulting object selected, hold down the Shift and click on a copy of the black ellipse. Next click on the Minus Back button from the Pathfinder palette and send the resulting object to back (Ctrl +Shift +Left Square Bracket).
