Making a Coloring Page with Illustrator: From iPad to Desktop — Part 2 - L6142b

Share this page

Join 2D Illustrator Dan (“Delta Tango Mike”) Flores in this follow-along lab as he shares the creative process behind his alphabet coloring page created with his favorite apps: Illustrator on the iPad and Illustrator on the desktop. Discover how easy it is to start an illustration from a blank page, and then master the Pen tool and explore your creativity. Learn how to harness the power of Creative Cloud documents that sync between the iPad and the desktop — in this lab, a Surface Pro 7. Finally, you’ll finish your own alphabet coloring page by saving it in JPEG format to share on Behance and with the world.

In Part 2 of this three-part lab, you’ll focus on moving your artwork across the iPad and desktop and learn how to:

  • Leverage cloud documents to access your artwork file on the iPad or the desktop
  • Make adjustments to the artwork and its artboard to build the best composition and layout for a coloring page
  • Export the artwork for web and print
