Digital-Tutors – Creating Photo Inspired Vector Artwork in Illustrator[/center]
Intermediate | 4h 27m | 1.13 GB | Project Files 76 MB | Required Software: Illustrator CS5 and up

In this collection of lessons we will learn about the process of creating photo inspired vector artwork. We will begin this process by learning how to recognize and target shapes in a realistic form which we can recreate here in Illustrator. While beginning to target shapes, we will also learn how to use 3 of the tools in Illustrator for creating different types of vector shapes including the pen tool, the pencil tool and the blob brush. After we have gotten the hang of these 3 tools we will proceed in executing our illustration. Along the way we will learn about organizing our artwork, gradient workflows, as well as various methods for fitting shapes together.
