About This Class

The pen tool is arguably the most important tool in Adobe Illustrator. Once you know how to properly and effectively use it, it will unlock the ability for you to create almost anything! The best part is, it is extremely easy to use and master. Not to mention it behaves nearly identically in Photoshop and other Adobe apps.

In this class I will show you each aspect of the pen tool and proper techniques to get the most accurate bezier curves and shapes. I will give you a few small exercises to practice from and then show you how to vectorize your own illustration or lettering.

The project for this class is to create your own custom soft enamel pin. Thanks to my good friends at Apple Metal, 3 lucky winners will receive 50 Soft Enamel Pins with their design! 

Enroll today! And don't forget to check out my other great classes as well!

Very good, concise course on how to use this tool! Thanks!
I especially appreciate the fact that the class just included the basics. I tend to get overwhelmed when too much is thrown at me at once.
