In Illustrator CS5 Essential Training, author Mordy Golding explains the core concepts and techniques that apply to any workflow in Illustrator, whether designing for print, the web, or assets for other applications. This course includes a detailed explanation of the elements that make up vector graphics—paths, strokes, and fills—and shows how to use each of Illustrator's drawing tools. Also demonstrated are techniques for combining and cleaning up paths, organizing paths into groups and layers, text editing, working with color, effects, and much more. Exercise files accompany the course.
This training title is only the beginning. Illustrator is an incredibly deep application with a very rich feature set. Throughout this training, we've basically scratched the surface, and we've covered the most important parts of Illustrator. However, there is a whole lot more to learn. Of course, you can head back to lynda.com and find additional training titles on Illustrator from both myself and also from Deke McClelland. You can also visit my blog. It's called Real World Illustrator. You could find that it at rwillustrator.blogspot.com.
If you scroll down just a little bit on the right side, you'll see a Table of Contents, which has information about various Illustrator Techniques. And I also have a section here called Ask Mordy where people regularly ask me questions and I try to answer them in the form of a blog post or a link to a video. In addition, another great resource is the user-to-user forum over at Adobe Forums, specifically for Illustrator. You could find them by going to forums.adobe.com. There is a great community of professionals that hang out there all the time, and even some of the engineers from the Illustrator team.
It's a great place to ask questions, get answers, and have general discussions around the use of Illustrator. Finally, you can also go over to Twitter.com, and do a search on the Illustrator keyword. People are always posting links to tutorials on the Web. You can even follow me at Mordy, and I'm happy to answer people's questions over Twitter as well. So hopefully, these additional resources will help you get a great start in learning how to get the most out of Adobe Illustrator.
