In the previous article on Triangle Arts: Part I, we talked about creating interesting patterns with triangles. Today, you will see how this can be achieved.
First of all, you will need to create 8 triangles as seen on the picture below.
You can start up with one triangle first.
Next, set the fill to gray color, then go into Fill Effects. Click on the Gradient tab, and set “To: ” to 100%.
The end result should looks like this:
Figure 1: Triangle Arts, how it should looks like at the start.
Next, hold down Ctrl and select A on your keyboard. Ctrl-A will allow you to select all the triangles at the same time. Once you have done that, you should be able to see green handles (The green color dots). These handles are there for you to rotate your triangles.
Hover over any of the green handles on the slide, then click and do the rotating. If you are doing it correctly, all the triangles should rotate together. With minimum time, you can produce simple patterns with triangles.
In the next tutorial, we will move on to a more advanced Triangle Arts.
