Covering a wide range of topics, from advanced masking to chart creation, Illustrator CS4 Beyond the Basics reveals a whole new level of power, creativity, and efficiency with Illustrator. Instructor Mordy Golding explores how to work with Live Paint groups, get the most out of the Live Trace feature, and take advantage of Illustrator’s wide range of effects. He also discusses advanced transformation techniques, powerful 3D functionality, and important color concepts. Exercise files accompany the course.
Admittedly, it can be very difficult to learn how to draw inside of Illustrator. You think about creating shapes and anchor points and working with the Pen tool, Bezier curves, not so much. So it's really great that inside of Illustrator CS2 Adobe added a feature called Live Paint. Now the premise of Live Paint is that you should be able to draw visually instead of mathematically. However, many designers have kind of shied away from this feature because the name Live Paint doesn't really describe exactly what the feature does. So in these series of movies I want to share with you all the wonderful functionality that exists inside of Live Paint so that you could more fun when you are creating your artwork.
