About This Class

This is a great beginner class and will be especially useful to designers or hobbyists, who haven’t honed their illustration skills just yet, as we will be doing the majority of the work using simple shapes and merging them together. You won’t need to be a master at drawing to make some awesome art!

In this class I will be covering the various shape tools, using pathfinder to merge objects, how to rounding corners evenly, rotating lines at exact degrees, and how to make your artwork as flawless as possible in general.

Whether you’ve never opened Adobe Illustrator before, or you have a decent idea of how to use the tools, this class has enough information for beginners of all levels to learn from.

If you are an intermediate user, there is a section at the end of the class where I go over drawing a bear using circles almost exclusively. This is a method used to make very appealing logos and cannot be missed.

So if this class sounds interesting to you, click play!
