- During this course, we'll be exploring the process of drawing out your creative ideas, refining your drawn designs, then building them precisely in Vector form. All of the build methods I go over in this course are provided in the Exercise Files and are organized by chapter folder. So make sure to access and deconstruct these files so you can become better equipped to produce your own Vector artwork.
You can go to the appropriate chapter folder and access all the examples I use in the movies. I've also included bonus examples of artwork such as my Take And Make Art book that you can check out, but I've also provided additional, extra content not showcased in any of the videos such as a free sample chapter from my book, Vector Basic Training, the second edition. You'll be able to read through this and this will give you additional insight and information to improve your Vector building skills, as well.
All of these resources found in the Exercise Files are going to enable you and help you to improve your core abilities. So let's get started.
