Create logos, illustrations, and artwork that can be displayed at any size and never lose quality! Adobe Illustrator is the industry-leading application for creating vector graphics, perfect for images with solid colors, crisp lines, and gradients. The first half of this workshop includes an overview of the Illustrator interface and tools. In the second half, the instructor will demonstrate how to create a vector illustration.
This workshop will cover layers, using the pen tool to draw Bezier-curves, working with paths and strokes, using the color palette and gradients, combining basic shapes to create new and complex shapes, scaling and rotating, transparency, clipping paths, placing text, fun tools like Extrude and Bevel.
Presented in Adobe Creative Cloud, but most of what is taught will apply to earlier versions of the program.
