About This Class

In this course, I'll be sharing how to primarily use the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator to explore one of many approaches to creating vector portraits from reference photos. This portrait approach is good for capturing a wide variety of subjects, and can be stylized as much as you like to reach a desired effect. 

Hint: Portraits need not be limited to human subjects, feel free to portrait your pup or any member of the animal kingdom for that matter.
