how to give transparent border around an object in illustrator?
Hi I want to create a icon like this:
So the Middle person has kind of transparent border around itself. So the other get cut automatically.
How to do this ?
Is there any way I can add transparent border ?
You can create a knockout stroke by using transparency to shape a knockout group.
- Put all three people together in a single layer
- On the top-most person, add a stroke with thickness of your liking
- From the Transparency pane, click Knockout Group twice and Opacity & Mask Define Knockout Shape once so that both have a checkmark
- Set the opacity of your stroked person to 0%
Here's a demonstration:
