  • Draw with brushes to achieve natural effects.
  • Create geometric artwork using the Pathfinder tool.
  • Explore 3D space and 3D effects.
  • Use gradients map and blend tools to further control shading and shape creation.
  • Work with effects and design own brushes.

This course is suitable for beginners and requires some familiarity with Illustrator.
