This week, I’m getting back to the basics, and when you’re talking about Adobe Illustrator for fashion design, that means using the Pen Tool to Flat Sketch. In my new video tutorial, I give a basic overview of how the Pen tool works, something many of us probably haven’t seen in a very long time (or ever for some who just hit the ground running using Illustrator on the job).
I’m also giving you some tips on what you should do to help you get better at using Illustrator to flat sketch. (Spoiler alert: it’s all about the practice, but what isn’t, right?)
Check it out and let me know in the video comments on YouTube if you’ve mastered the Pen Tool to draw your fashion flat sketches or if you’re still struggling a little with handling those direction handles. Or if you’ve said, “I’m over it! I’m going to find something else to use to sketch in Illustrator!”
Watch now, and have a great weekend!
