Description

This course is designed to help those new to Adobe Illustrator make the most of its drawing and painting tools. 

We'll go over the paintbrush tool and the different ways to adjust the settings for the tool and also ways to define the brush strokes that we can create. We'll also use the blob brush tool and pencil tool. We'll take a look at how differently the tools create strokes and shapes and how we can utilize their strengths for the needs of our project. Next we'll take a look at the width tool and width profiles. We'll get an understanding how we can utilize this tool and the width profile settings to add weight and variation to basic line strokes. And finally, we'll learn the process of making a custom pattern brush. This course goes over some of the ways you can use the drawing tools in Illustrator to create great looking artwork.

 By the end of this course, students will have an understanding of how you can customize your tools to meet the needs of your project, simplify your workflow, and start creating art with Adobe Illustrator more efficiently.
