Introduction to Adobe Illustrator on the iPad: Design a Themed Illustration

via Skillshare


In this class, you’ll learn Adobe Illustrator on the iPad. This is an introduction to Adobe Illustrator on the iPad and we’ll go through all of the basic tools and features, as we create a fun themed illustration. 

There’s a bunch of free resources to download in class, so that you can follow along and create the exact same project as me if you wish, for the best possible learning experience.

My theme for the illustration is Swedish Fika. Fika is a Swedish word which means taking a coffee break with something sweet. You are welcome to create an illustration that looks exactly like mine, your own illustration on this theme or an illustration based on another fun theme that you come up with. 

This is a beginners friendly class. It's for illustrators, graphic designer, surface designers or hobbyist who wants to learn the basics of the app.

By the end of this class you will be able to create a vector illustration in Adobe Illustrator on the iPad, and you’ll know your way around the basic functions and features that the app offers, so that you can use this amazing app for your future design projects.
