  3. more than 10 years of experience in photoshop TOTALLY GONE switching to Illustrator lol

  4. Great tutorial! Do you have a tutorial for Illustrator for iPad? For some reason Illustrator on the iPad confuses me more than the desktop version (which I don’t have access to anymore). Thanks!

  5. awesome Than you

  6. When I am using the pen tool, I have the fill set to no colour and the stroke set to red but it still keeps filling in with colour. 🤔

  10. all the time seme shit, you make that in video,why I cannot do it???????

  11. Thanks!💯

  12. One of the best tutorials I have ever seen! I remember back before everything was on YouTube, having to try to learn something like this from a book. It's amazing how in a couple minutes of watching you do something you explained what would have been extremely hard to explain otherwise. I almost never bother to download exercise files, but for this I did. Great way to show the difference between the curvature tool and the pen tool. I had no idea when using the pen tool you wanted to go horizontally or vertically with the … whatever the "bends" in the arcs are called. Thanks again – I have been downloading tutorials on tpb, and honestly the quality of "paid" tutorials seems no better thn what is on YouTube!

  13. You are super great teacher

  14. thank's a lot for your work very well explained !

  15. Thank you so much for this video

  16. Excellent video! As a newbie, this video has been immensely helpful! I thank you and have subscribed. I am actually feeling a bit more at ease with Illustrator just from watching and following along and cannot wait to practice those images. Thank you again for you hard work in putting this video together. Off to go watch the pen video now!

  17. 😊I'm embarrassed to say that I couldn't keep up but I think it's because I've always found Adobe ______and also the Word Suite to be too cluttered to figure out. Is there an Adobe Illustrator (2024) for extreme beginners or even a simplistic picture book?

  18. Thank you for this! I have the Classroom book, but this video is very helpful for my coursework. Thanks again!

  19. you a good teacher l love your explanation.
