Great tutorial, straight to the point, provided the basic knowledge and the rest is left to the student to apply their patience and knowledge of illustrator, giving the student the practise of using the tools in a repetitive manner, making it easy to remember, enjoyed it!
Great technique. It doesn't take much time to learn but the possibilities are endless. I really enjoy Aerie's classes.
A simple way to create a complicated, but elegant design.
