Freebie: Abstract blobs & bursts

Turquoise Flag-Tip

Everyone loves free vector art. Here’s a fun vector freebie: Abstract blobs & bursts! Inside you’ll find ten multi-colored blobby shapes and a couple of bonus composites.

I hope you enjoy these free vectors – Read on to find out how to easily make some of your own!

First: Make a few circles with complementary colors. Now, set the blending mode to multiply and turn the opacity down to about 60%. The more circles you have to begin with, the darker and more intense the final product will be.

Second:So I wanted a darker final blob, so I copied and rotated the first group of circles.

Third: Take warp tool at about 50% strength and make a few sweeping passes through your circles. You should end up with something like this.

Fourth: Use the smoothing tool (found under the flyout in the pencil tool) to clean up some rough curves. Go back to the warp tool to add a little more character to the blob until you’re satisfied!

See, I had trouble making four steps out of that! Once you’ve mastered that process, don’t be afraid to use the wrinkle, pinch and bloat varieties of the warp tool. Have fun!
