Adobe Tutorial Illustrator Basic Techniques
In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial you will learn how to make a super simple paper clip. The video will try and explain different ways of making for example a line, or how to rotate objects, which could be considered basic, but are really useful when you are learning Illustrator.
One thing to start doing early on with Adobe Illustrator, is learning to observe and break down your work in smaller pieces. The paper clip is a perfect example because of the simple lines, and half circle shapes it uses.
In total you will learn ten basic, but very useful techniques. This is the list of things the video covers:
- Setup a grid – Snap to grid
- Brake objects into simple shapes/lines
- Create lines
- Create circles
- Divide shapes
- Rotate objects
- Learn to use the reflect tool
- Join shapes
- Expand objects
- Offset the path of an object
I hope the video is useful and will help you understand some of the things above, if you have questions or comments please leave them below or at the video page in Youtube.
