Project Description

Assignment

This class will teach you to fully make use of the benefits Adobe Illustrator's Live Corners have to offer. At first glance, it's a simple new addition to Illustrator's arsenal, but by the end of this class you will understand the true power that it holds (and remember that with great power comes great responsibility).

*Please note that these techniques require Adobe Illustrator CC*

There are two parts to your assignment in this class. Upon completing each part, upload the result to your class project so you can not only get feedback, but help out your fellow students.

  1. Download the attached document and trace all six sketches using the technique from the class.
  2. Create an illustration/design using at least three of the live corner techniques covered in this class.

Resources

  • The assignment document can be found in "Attached Files" below
  • You can submit any future class ideas using this form
  • I have also attached artwork that has used these techniques. Study them and try to understand what techniques were used where
