In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial, we’ll transform a rough sketch of the SCAR from Fortnite into a slick and smooth graphic. We’ll go through the entire process of creating the shapes, refining the shapes, rounding corners, punching out holes, adding texture, adding scratches, building out highlights and shadows to give our flat shapes some depth and dimension, and we’ll cover a ton of Illustrator tools and general technique I use when approaching a project like this! I hope you enjoy it!
