9780134176734: Vector Basic Training

There are tons of books that explain how to use the tools in Adobe Illustrator, but there aren’t many books that explain how to use them well. In the second edition of this popular guide, respected illustrator, teacher, and speaker, Von Glitschka shares his systematic method for creating precise, well-crafted vector artwork using the latest software tools. This fun and informative book has been expanded to include a brand new chapter on illustrative techniques, as well as new illustrations throughout the book and four hours of all-new video tutorials, worksheets, and source files available free for download to anyone who buys the book.

Glitschka uses a blend of humor and entertaining illustrative examples to walk you through his personal process for creating vector shapes with precision. You will learn how and when to create art point-by-point through rough building and refinement as well as through shape-building techniques using Illustrator’s Pathfinder palette. Glitschka also shows you how to integrate and establish good creative habits for building and managing vector art files. After reading this book and following all of the step-by-step exercises and tutorials within, you will understand the principles behind creating shapes so that you can get your ideas out of your head and successfully onto the computer.
