So far we have covered all the initial analog methods needed to become a proficient illustrative designer. Before we jump into digital and go over all the various vector build methods and the tools, we need to do a few things first. In this chapter we'll go over several custom workflow enhancements and functions that will improve your overall creative process and help you build your vector art faster. We'll be covering using Keyboard shortcuts and recording actions, using Custom scripts in Illustrator, Custom color palettes and graphic styles, Toggling your smart guides on and off as you build, and the importance of using Layers.
Once you have integrated these simple enhancements into your daily design routine, they will eventually become second nature in your creative workflow.
