The Complete Beginners Guide To Adobe Illustrator | Tutorial Overview & Breakdown

Welcome to the complete beginners guide to Adobe Illustrator.

On this course I will be introducing you to the program and covering some essential practise exercises.

Then I will be demonstrating how to create a small project in Adobe Illustrator from start to finish.

To help break down the process I have structured the course in 3 main sections:

SECTION 1 – INTRODUCTION

SECTION 2 – ESSENTIAL PRACTISE

SECTION 3 – TEST PROJECT

CHAPTER 1 – SETUP & LIVE TRACE
CHAPTER 2 – DRAWING
CHAPTER 3 – COLOURING & ADDING TYPE
CHAPTER 4 – FINISHING & EXPORTING FOR PRINT

Along the way we will be covering many topics, such as how to set up your document, understand how the program works, use text in Illustrator, prepare and import images into Illustrator and finally export your document ready for print.

Enjoy
