Adobe Illustrator has long been a popular vector–based drawing program, but for many the learning curve is steep. In Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals, author and leading industry expert Deke McClelland shows users how to get in to the Illustrator mindset and overcome this learning curve. He covers the application's key features in a new way, making it simple and easy to master Illustrator. Deke teaches viewers how to use the core drawing and shape tools, the transformation and reshaping features, text, and the Pen tool. He also explains how to export and print. Even if learning Illustrator has been a struggle in the past, this training can help make sense of it. Exercise files accompany the course.
So far, our journey through Illustrator has been more like an odyssey, one in which we wove segments into lace, assembled spirals into body parts, and transformed circles into the stuff of gods. We met strange one-eyed logos, converted glyphs into poetry, and fended off the Queen of Murder, and who can forget our battle with an underwater dragon waged entirely with the Pen tool, and that's just the beginning. Future installments of Illustrator CS4 One-on-One will include Pathfinder operations, the Liquify tools, envelope style distortions, gradients and Gradient Mesh, blends and masks, vector- based brush strokes, transparency, Live Effects, and much, much more. If Illustrator were a car, now you know how to drive it.
In later series, I'll show you how to race and as much as it might worry your mother, racing is a lot more fun. Until next we belt-in and give it the gas, on behalf of lynda.com, this is Deke McClelland saying, see ya!
