Our Adobe Illustrator CS6: Advanced training course shows you how to create professional graphics and effects by controlling some of the intricate, little-known and hidden features of the software.
Presenter Bob Flisser takes you beyond creating simple shapes and into masking, tracing, 3D art and seamless patterns, as well as, managing color and using Illustrator with Photoshop. Illustrator has a lot of powerful features, and we explain them to you in plain English.
This series covers the different types of masks, the new Image Trace feature, the new pattern creation panel, how to draw in perspective using the Perspective Grid, selecting color with the Color Guide panel, creating bristle brushes and calligraphic brushes, multiple methods of using Illustrator with Photoshop, synchronizing color management with other Creative Suite applications, and proofing and pre-press functions for color separations.
After completing this course, you will know how to create artwork in perspective and 3D, as well as masking, recoloring, layer blending, creating pictographs and more. In addition, you will learn professional techniques, workflow, color management and time-saving shortcuts.
