Adding your custom shape to a piece of art: No Drawing Necessary: Custom Shapes in Photoshop

In this video, Deke shows you how to add an elaborate custom shape—of your own making—to vector-based artwork inside Adobe Illustrator. Deke uses two commands in the Edit menu, Copy and Paste in Back. Then, he clicks the Flip Along Horizontal Axis icon to flip his custom shape. As well as the Scale tool to reduce its size to fit the artwork. And that’s how you take what was once a photographic image, convert it to a compound path, and integrate it into a piece of artwork inside Illustrator.
