Please comment and rate videos – this will help other people find them by ranking them higher…it takes a second 🙂 — The basics of drawing using the paths tool. This is part one of an on-going series of tutorials on creating Vector Art. This one is particularly basic, but you gotta learn to walk before you run, eh? My aim over the series is to teach you the skills needed to create the sort of vector art you can see all over deviantart.com, on various web designs and in the awe-inspiring video linked to here: www.youtube.com (Some deviantart: search.deviantart.com Shortcut keys: b = paths tool shift+click handles = symetrical handle manipulation ctrl+click on end anchor = join paths ctrl+click (on the line)= create new anchor mid-line shift+ctrl+click on anchor = delete anchor Please have some patience with this series…it will need a lot of tutorials, but it’ll be worth it in the end! I should also point out that I am not an accomplished vector artist (yet). I have been figuring this stuff out for a week or so…as I learn more I will pass it on to you guys. I AM NOT AN EXPERT! I hope you enjoy the series, and please comment or mail me with any queries it may generate.
