Comprehensive and creative, artistic and accurate…learn Illustrator CS5 from a veteran author and brilliant 3D artist.
As the industry-leading vector-based drawing application, Illustrator CS5 is the most powerful tool on the market for creating graphics. But it can be confusing at the beginning—especially if you’ve never created vector art before.
In this 4-hour tutorial, artist and author Kelly Murdock breaks introduces you to the beautiful simplicity of Illustrator CS5. After mastering the basics of the Illustrator interface, you’ll learn to draw objects, edit vector and raster lines, paint and apply custom effects, and work with Illustrator objects in paths, layers, templates, and animations. From there, you’re into the fun stuff, transforming objects, editing and smoothing paths, applying gradients and fills, using patterns and transparency, and working with type.
New features in Illustator CS5 are covered in depth, including using the Artboard panel, applying the new Width tool on strokes, and creating complex shapes with the Shape Builder tool. You’ll also learn important tips for anti-aliasing vector graphics, creating good-looking text on a path or around a shape, and working efficiently as you hide, lock, combine, and animate layers.
Murdock brings equal measures of artistry and accuracy to his training and his vector art. Let him show you how to get the most out of this powerful illustration application.
What's New in Version 1.1
Improved user experience.
Kind of disappointed
This app would be worth $2.99 but not $9.99.
There is some great information here but the app fails to deliver. It's menu isn't a stock iOS menu so it's not great and scrolls back to the top every time it's opened. Also, the video quality is very low making the screencast hard to see especially on iPad. Lastly, and this may just be personal preference, the instructor moves/talks very slow. That could be a good thing for some but I find myself getting bored and losing focus a lot.
Bug is FIXED!
The "Really Big Bug" I reported previously was due to the app and iOS 5 not "playing nice". The app developers were very prompt in responding and addressing/correcting the problem! Hat's off to them for great customer service and for a great app!
