Case Based Critical Thinking

Mark finds that many of his designers are mostly Photoshop gurus and aren’t fully up to speed with using the Pen tool to draw objects in Illustrator, and because of this, much of their line work and choices for stroking effects are unsatisfactory. He also finds that they are unaware of the basic concepts behind the Live Paint feature and how they relate to standard Illustrator working methods.
 

 5. 

To explain the concept of the Live Paint feature to his team, Mark knows he must reinforce the basic rules of painting objects in Illustrator. He creates two circles in Illustrator with no fill and no stroke, then positions them so that one is overlapping half of the other. He refers to this as “the artwork.” He then tells his team that - without using Live Paint - the total number of different fills and stroke colors that could be applied to “the artwork” is:
a.
1 fill color and 1 stroke color
b.
2 different fill colors and two different stroke colors
c.
three different fill colors and two different stroke colors
d.
three different fill colors and four different stroke colors
 

 6. 

One of the junior designers has become confused about the Miter Limit option in the Stroke panel. Mark uses a star as an example, then uses the Miter Limit option to reduce the points to bevels. The junior designer says he’s still confused about the term “miter.” Mark explains that, in Illustrator, miter issues only occur with ____.
a.
unstroked paths
b.
stroked paths
c.
anchor points
d.
beveled edges
