How To Create Easter Icons
Easter holiday is coming over very soon! It’s a beautiful time of the year, famous for painting eggs and its family atmosphere 🌸 We are sure you may want to wish happy Easter to quite a few friends and family members, and what would be the best way to do that if not through some sweet icons!
If you are running a small business or working as a marketer, you’d also need some kind of icons to greet your customers and partners through a newsletter or social media - they’d love it! 🐣
In this descriptive tutorial we will walk you through the process of creating two Easter icons in Vectr. As usual in Vectr it’s going to be simple, fun and the results are going to be stunning!
Creating Easter Eggs Icon
Let’s start making the round for the egg first. Then it’s better to disable the background, and instead enable the border from the filters menu.
Once done that, drag the bottom and top anchor points of your egg for it to have a bit more… emm… egg-like form!
Now that we’ve got a base of our egg, it’s time to color it! It’s a very simple step, all you need to do is to select the egg, then go to filters menu on the right, and choose the background color for your egg. To make it look even better let’s apply a gradient here!
Now it’s time to decorate the egg. That’s when you can fully unleash your creativity! There are uncountable ways to make your Easter eggs look unique: stripes, dots, some simple icons inside? It’s all up to you!
We are going to decorate our eggs with some dots, and two kinds of stripes. First of all, we’re going to create a pink curved stripe. Pen tool is perfect for that.
Umm, doesn’t look perfect from the first sight, right? Thankfully, we can modify paths in Vectr and round up some corners. Using some simple manipulations we can easily make our stripe look better in no time.
In order to remove the parts of the stripe that are sticking out we simply need to edit the design a bit more moving the anchor points.
But we still need to create the circles and another stripe! Let’s start with the latter. We can use the normal rectangle tool to create and fix that stripe. Next thing is to create the circles ⭕
Easter eggs are ready to be presented to your friends and family! You can download the final project here, or go to the previous steps, duplicate the project to your own dashboard and continue working from there!
Cute Easter Bunny Icon
Easter Bunny is second most famous symbol of this holiday 🐰 You could place this icon on your social media, use it as a part of a larger composition or just send to someone and boast that you did it all by yourself!
First of all we shall create the main shape for the icon - the circle and then modify it so it’d look like bunny’s head. That must be a quick one so let’s just run further!
Now let’s colour up our bunny! Choose the colour that fits you best.
Then let’s continue to draw the ears of the bunny! You can make them of the shape that you prefer using the pen tool.
And then we shall copy the ear, use workspace tools to flip it and so place the same one on the other side.
All we need to do now is to create pink elements to complete the design of the ears. And here we go!
The last thing is missing - we need to add the eyes!
Some few final adjustments - and the bunny is ready :)
