Description

The Pen tool in Illustrator can create curves--but they often don't look smooth or polished. This course, Illustrator CC Curvature Tool, will show you how to use Illustrator CC 2014's Curvature tool (and others) to create beautiful curves in your artwork easier than ever before. First, you'll learn the basics of the Curvature tool: how to set your preferences for this tool and how to draw curves. You'll then move onto using the Anchor Point tool in order to refine your curves to make them look smoother. Finally, you'll learn some tricks and shortcuts with other tools such as the Reflect tool to end up with your final design: a curved frame with decorative flourishes. By the end of this course, you'll have a more in-depth knowledge of several Illustrator CC tools and you'll be able to create polished and flowing curved paths in your artwork.
