Phase five: Expanding and separating artwork

In this exclusive preview of his upcoming Illustrator CS5 One-on-One: Advanced course, lynda.com author Deke McClelland shares six phases in the creation of an authentic five-by-three-foot pirate flag. In today’s episode, Deke uses Illustrator to expand, separate, and prepare a piece of artwork for output to any medium. Look for the full course to be released in its entirety later this year. Phase six will be online tomorrow.

Topics include:
• Expanding a Live Trace object into path outlines
• Separating commonly colored paths to a layer
• Resizing the artboard and creating a full bleed

Part one: Sketching
Part two: Editing scanned line art
Part three: Adding contrast and color
Part four: Live trace and resolution
