Illustrator Insider Training: Rethinking the Essentials is the first installment in a series of courses designed to show experienced Illustrator users to how master core features and build art more efficiently. Adobe Illustrator has evolved dramatically over the years, and many creative professionals may be missing out on features that have been added to the latest versions. This course takes a fresh approach to core concepts, such as paths, attributes, object hierarchy, groups, and layers. Advanced techniques such as combining multiple effects and customizing textures are also included. Exercise files and a free worksheet are included with the course.
In this chapter, we are going to be introduced to what I feel is the most important panel inside of Illustrator, the Appearance panel. Now, it's actually kind of weird, because in Illustrator's Essential, or default, workspace, the Appearance panel is kind of hidden down near the bottom. But we're going to find out that really, without the Appearance panel, you're flying blind inside of Illustrator. We learned before about the difference between structure and presentation. Well, in Illustrator, the presentation of artwork is referred to as its appearance. As we'll see now inside of Illustrator, using the Appearance panel is going to be a key to controlling all that information.
