If you are referring to the spoon for example I would be inclined to recommend doing that in Photoshop.

But I suppose a Scatter Brush could be employed in Illustrator.

Illustrator has some of the photoshoop filters applied as an effect. I you go to the Effect menu and half way down you will see the Effects Gallery one of those effects I believe could. Work either as an effect or as a mask.

You could also autotrace a piece of whatever images you might have on your computer - basically a gradient with noise when autotraced will prodduce the chunky airbrush look.

This would be another example, just finer texture:

It's an old technique, where sign artists, etc would probably take spray paint and spray the noisy, gradient texture over masked off portions of the canvas/sign. I've been meaning to try this style for some time now - digitally of course.

The style relies on a lot of smart shape-play and nice colors. Your posted example is a great one.

I would also default to Photoshop for such a thing, though. So much easier to just brush on this type of texture to a layer with it's transparency locked. Draw everything in Illy, but then save out a layered PSD for finishing in PS.

Though it looks like "sprayed" these "old artists" were not doing it this way. They'd used printmaking technique called litography. And this work was done this way.

In Photoshop I would probably use a Hard Mix-Pattern Layer and a Gradient Map to get a similar result.

The Scatter Brush-approach in Illustrator I mentioned previously does not seem ideal to me.

Can you explain in more detail how you achieved this? This looks really good but I don't quite understand the layering. What pattern are you using and how is the stamp effect acheived? thanks in advance

Stumbled onto something that reminded me of this thread.

Check out what this guy did in Corel Draw, 100% vector he says.

Nice gritty, spraypaint-looking texturing he achieved.

Hmm wait a second here folks . . . just hold on!

Wade, I may've spoken too soon. See you really were headed in the right direction. This post officially makes you and I a team! Together, we will conquer JET!  ok  j/k . . .

Check it, y'all:   (this is in Illustrator, BTW)

procedure02.PNG

Took Wade's work and just added Stamp. The available parameters allow you to get it just right. Only thing is that you can't control how large the "chunks" comprising the binary gradient are. So keep you art at the right scale, relative to the Sponge/Stamp texture.

Save it the applied effect as a Graphic Style, or create an action, whatever you wanna do. Your golden.

Hey, I've got the answer !

Actually, once you know the trick it is very simple :

First, you duplicate the object you want to apply shadow on

you apply a fill gradient to your copy correponding to your shadow. The shadow dark will be black and the light part will white with 0% opacity.

Then you apply a the filter mezzotint to this gradient (Effect/pixellate/mezzotint) and you choose the kind of grain you want.

Last, you apply multiply or overlay transparency setting to your grain gradient and lower the opacity to your taste (usually 30/40%).

Finally you put the gradient grain part on the orginal part and you done !

Tip : to make a gradient that perfectly fit your form, use the blend tool between a black line and a withe trsparent line.

I hope this help and ask me if you need more info about that !

@ Bakhtiar UddinUddin

So is your plan to start spamming this forum soon also? Can you stop flooding the other site with your CPI spam, you know exactly the one I am talking about.
