Adobe Illustrator : vector illustration fundamental


Alhamdulillah. Its finally here. My first course about vector illustration using Adobe Illustrator.

This is a very long course consist of total more than 70 videos carefully crafted for anyone who wants to learn vector illustration. It was designed for a total beginners up until advance level where students can create sophisticated illustration that at a glance looks like a raster digital painting.

The full course will be online at Udemy at the end of January 2017 in sha Allah. While at SkillShare I divide the course into two courses, “Adobe Illustrator : Vector Illustration Fundamental” which is already online now. And the advance level which the continuation of the fundamental class “Adobe Illustrator : Advance Vector Illustration” targeted to be only in the same time as Udemy course goes online. -in sha Allah-
