To access "Ellipse Tool", click and drag "Rectangle Tool" to the right. Let's create a circle by holding "Shift" and clicking and dragging the cursor on the canvas. For more information, refer to our tutorials on how to create basic shapes and how to get perfect shapes.
You can make the size of the effect larger or smaller by holding the "Alt" key on your keyboard and dragging the mouse
When you hold "Alt", you will see a small corner appear next to the cross in the center of the circle, letting you know the image can be resized. Hold the "Shift" key to keep the shape of the tool in proportion. For this tutorial, let's make the cursor slightly smaller than the object.
"Wrinkle Tool" gives a much more organic, natural look to images created in Illustrator. "Wrinkle Tool" is quite a sporadic thing compared to the other tools in the same expanded menu. It makes things wobbly in the polished image.
For "Intensity", a lower number means less intensity. This will result in a slower process of wrinkling. The default setting is 50 %, which is comfortable enough to monitor changes to your shape as they are made.
This is recommended to spend time experimenting with those, as they can have quite a dramatic effect on your shape. You can adjust a percentage in the "Horizontal" and "Vertical" values. For this tutorial, let's set both to 50 % by typing "50%" into the text boxes.
Now, come back to the canvas and click the shape to apply the effect with the new settings
Everything within the circle will be affected. "Wrinkle Tool" can be used to create interesting and dynamic shapes from simple shapes for your poster or designing. Each time the effect is applied, more anchor points appear.
