Now, let's take a look at what's going on inside this illustration. How is it structured, how are illustrations built? I am going to bring over the Layers palette, so that we can see it on screen with the robot at the same time and I am also going to expand the Layers palette.
Now if you aren't readily seeing your Layers palette on screen, you can go to the Window menu and you can choose the Layers command or you can press the F7 key and I introduce you to this palette right off the bat because it is such an important part of using Illustrator. Now notice that Bryan has gone ahead and created many layers inside of this illustration, he has named all the layers as well.
So the Sky layer is obviously just the background sky. But here is what I am going to do, I am going to Alt+Click on this eyeball right here at the bottom of the Layers palette. If you are on the Mac, press the Option key and click on that eyeball and what that will do is hide everything but this bottom layer. So we are just looking at the Sky layer currently. Then I will go ahead and turn on the Head layer, and you can see how the Head is unique from all the objects in the illustration. It's also toward the back of the illustration, which might seem sort of backwards since it's at the top of the robot. But in terms of stacking order which is to say the way that these objects inside Illustrator are stacked on top of each other, it belongs at the back of the stack just in front of this sky.
Then we have one of the arms over here on the right side his Left Arm, then we have his Body on top of that, then we have some Dials in front of the body that looks sort of like decals, very nice. We have his Right Arm on the left side of the illustration, we have his crotch down at the bottom here, this little plate that's down at the bottom of the body. We have his Legs in front of that then we have some Feet, see his Feet down here, and then in front of the Feet because we have this sort of low angel shot of this robot, below that is the Ground, alright.
Everything is kind of inverted in terms of our normal thinking, inside this particular illustration. It's not always that way of course.
