Illustrator Shapes Tutorial by milkbun Illustrator Shapes Tutorial by milkbun

This is an Adobe Illustrator Tutorial on How to Make Shapes

I can confirm the usage of versions as early as 9/10. Everything is there, it might look or be labeled slightly different (noted in tutorial). Everything works the same on a mac and a pc only the combination of alt/shift/control/command/apple changes.

Although I go over some very basic principles, this tutorial is meant for people with somewhat of a grasp on the fundamentals of Illustrator. If you are just starting the best tutorial is self taught so keep playing around.

Please note, this tutorial is not a definitive guide on how to make shapes. I'm only providing a foundation to learn that there is more than one way to do anything and it can be done with precision.

Thanks, enjoy the tutorial! n__n

EDIT: Thanks so much ^znow-white for giving me a DD... so fast too...! :hug:

Hi, shape-making humans!  I still use this tutorial when throwing together quick images for presentations at my job, and I wanted to add for anyone like me who had trouble with it, as of CS5.5, you have to shift-click a given point to be able to edit the angle of the path attached to it.  That should let you created altered shapes like the strawberry in the second example.
