Hi everyone, I had an idea which seems to be too complicated as for my illustrator skills.
So I'm asking for any tipps or hints how I can blend the lines in circle with increasing width.(Sketch to the right on the picture) Perhaps someone already did something familiar. Thank you

figure what size you want the circle (eg: 2.1447”) and # of lines (eg: 12).

“polaroid-tool":

  • rad: 2.1447”x 2.1447”
  • c-div: 0
  • r-div: 12
  • rotate: 9° (optional)

create your 12 lines … not necessary to outline-stroke … expand/ungroup if you applied blend.  move end of each line to the appropriate points on polaroid-tool

 

tips:

  • might be easier keeping the virgin elements on separate locked layer … so as not to alter.
  • changing line-opacity temporarily might aide in placement.
  • utilizing smart-guides serves for precise positioning.

I love how Ton so often looks at things from a different perspective to the majority of replies. Ai has always given us a load of ways to do the same task but Ton repeatedly offers a solution beyond what apppears to be requested. 👍
