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.
