Today, we're making our very own 3D Minecraft avatar in Adobe Illustrator. You can use this technique to either recreate a favorite character in Minecraft style, or create yourself or a friend for a special occasion. If you'd like to support Ryan, you can view more of his work at RyanQuintal.com or become a supporter on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/ryanquintal).
Lets kick it old school and create assets from one of my favorite puzzle games of all time — Tetris. We're going to be using shape tools, opacity, blend modes and the Recolor artwork feature that lets you drastically change the look of your Illustrator creations with ease.
I'm not sure I got all the Tetris shapes just right, so tweet me your creations @ryanquintal.
