Hi! I have been trying to merge two different shapes. One shape, for example has a small white circle in the middle, surrounder by 5 black rectangles, the other one, a larger white circle surrounded by 20 rectangles. I tried to blend the shapes but they are distorted, also tried to create brushes to repeat the shapes but i didnt get the end result, as shown in the following image. Any suggestions on how to create this effect would be greatly appreciated! thank youdob.jpg

Blend would be the way to go.

 

So how did your result look like?

Exactly how did you make the base shapes?

Can you show the base artwork with layers panel open?

 

Or better: the file itself?

Yeah, I'm interested too, curious about the "spokes" increasing in number... I don't know how to do that.

You have to generate the spokes by using a transform effect.

THen when blending, Illustrator will blend between the effect settings.

Group them each. Mind the stacking order

Apply another effect to the group to scale it/them

Then blend
