Illustrator tutorial: way to make 3D disco ball (another style)
Create a New Document and then create a Rectangular shape size 5cm x 5cm fill it with bright radial gradient. Then Rasterize your image by go to the top menu ==> Object ==>Rasterize and just clik “ok”
Now go to the Filter==>Create ==>Object Mosaic and play with numbers there. Let's make some option as below:
New size: 5 cm for both width and height
Tile spacing = 0 cm for both width and height
Number of Tiles =30 (again for both)
Check ‘Delete Raster’ box.
Now we’ve got a nicemosaic.
Select the rectangular and drag and drop it into the Symbols panel.
Ungroup this ball (Ctrl + Shift + G) or right click => ungroup do like this 3 times and select the side ball to remove it away.
Now lets add some star light on the ball make it more shining by drawing 4 part of stars for our finall result.
I know that it was not colorfull enough I hope every one can give me some idea to make it nice and lighter then. So let's share..
