Im new to Illustrator and have found the clipping mask is not so easy compared to Phtoshop. Could any one tell me how i can make this line texture a clipping mask over the circle?
Assuming you want the lines to be inside the circle….
- Select the circle
Edit > Copy
- Deselect everything
Edit > Paste in Front
- Select the lines and the new circle (the pasted one)
Object > Clipping Mask > Make
The difference between how Photoshop and Illustrator works regarding this is that you need to define the shape of the mask separately in Illustrator. With Photoshop you can simply clip to an existing layer. In Illustrator you need to specifically create the shape of the mask to be used (the pasted circle above).
