Learn about importing a sketch, creating a template layer, and drawing basic roads.
- [Instructor] Okay, so now we've got…a handful of stars at least to start working with,…it's time to actually start drawing some roads.…So you can settle in now for the next 25 minutes.…I'm just kidding.…(laughing)…I won't be drawing all of those roads in front of you.…But let's go through the practice of actually doing it.…First thing I tend to do with documents like this,…and you saw this in the previous movie,…is load up some swatches.…And I use these from nature, stone and brick…and landscape there.…
And I just bring those in to my swatches panel.…It's up to you if you bring in the whole lot.…I've got all these selected already, or not.…You can just bring in the ones you're using,…it's entirely up to you.…But now I've got those.…I can dismiss those two just there.…So do that to start off with.…And then bring in the sketch that we'll be working from.…So shift command p, or shift control p…on Windows for the placement command,…and navigate through to the exercise files…and greatThrelling.PNG ancestral home…of Harmar House just there.…
