In this collection of lessons we will give you an introductory look into Illustrator by teaching you terms and definitions as well as basic tools and techniques. We will start off by learning what vector graphics are as well as the different components of a vector graphic. We will then take a look how we can draw and manipulate a variety of different vector objects. After that, you will learn what object attributes are and how to change them. And to wrap up this project, we will go over object organization and how we can save our work. This series of step-by-step videos were developed with artists new to Illustrator in mind so we will be moving at a steady, easy-to-follow pace making sure you understand terms and basic techniques.
