The school year is well under way, but the kids aren’t the only ones learning new things! Today I’m back at it—sharing a new tutorial that will help you take your digital drawing skills to the next level. Check out my latest video, and learn how to draw in Adobe Illustrator (without using a tablet).
For me, I feel like I almost always go back to the Pen Tool whenever I need to create “non-standard” shapes and forms; but it can be really time consuming to use the Pen Tool when trying to draw something that has a more organic shape. That’s where some of these other tools I feature in the video come in handy!
The main tools you will be using:
Line Segment Tool
I don’t showcase the brush tool very much in the video; but, just to reiterate, the main difference between the using the Pencil Tool and the Brush Tool, is that, even though you can alter the stroke later, the Pencil Tool will alway default back to a basic line when you start drawing again. The Brush Tool, on the other hand, will continue to implement your brush selection with each new stroke.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to draw in Adobe Illustrator. Now go and create something amazing for me!
