Watercolor Popsicles in Adobe Illustrator

In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’ll show you how to make your own tasty popsicles or lollipop graphics. We’ll use a range of handy Illustrator tools to create the first colourful lollipop, then build upon each subsequent illustration with new additions which provide an opportunity to touch on different tools and techniques, then we’ll add some subtle texturing with my free watercolour circle textures.

  1. That’s a very good tip! thank you. But I can’t fix the problem about file size, which it becomes really big when the file is saved to be in EPS format. And most of the stock sites don’t accept a bitmap or rasterize image.

    • Having the texture embedded into the file can bump up the file size. You can trim a few MBs by setting the Preview Format to None, or removing the watercolour texture altogether.
      Exporting as a PNG as Matt suggests would be the best option, but you mentioned stock websites don’t accept raster images. It’s worth remembering that the texture in this artwork would still be raster and not scalable like the vector portions.

  2. I love this tutorial! I also love this UK heat wave! Thanks Chris, you’re so talented.

  3. just finished recreating the lolly’s and have learnt so much from this tutorial thank you so much
