About This Class

Adobe Illustrator is an incredible design application, one that has limitless potential for translating your creativity into beautiful graphic formats. The sheer amount of tools and effects can be daunting, however, leaving beginners intimidated and confused without a starting point. This series will not only provide a foundation for working with Illustrator, it will get you started on the path to harnessing the application's power and creating amazing things!

This class, which is the second of a four part series on the Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator, will provide in-depth insrtuction and understanding into the tools in Illustrator.

Be sure to enroll in my complete Fundamentals of Illustrator Series: Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator I: The First Steps to Becoming a Pro Illustrator, Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator III: Working with Color, Fills & Strokes, and Fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator IV: Appearance, Layers, Images & Symbols.

These classes are just AMAZING! It's my first time with Illustrator and I was able to follow everything soooo easily and at the same time I didn't get bored to death as it was with some other tutorials I'd tried before. Love Brad Woodard and love Skillshare!
I think this is an awesome class! He gives really great tips that speed up the work flow. The one thing I would say that could make it easier to follow is putting up the button icons of the buttons you use for your shortcuts on the screen. Even without that I still love the class. I'd say this is one of the most helpful resources for illustrator that i've seen. Thanks so much!
This is a really good series of tutorials for beginners or for people who wants to get back to Illustrator. Lots of useful hotkeys and concepts and was really easy to follow.
