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.
