Adobe Illustrator Tutorials – Best Of

Advertisement

Over years Adobe Illustrator has become the standard application when it comes to illustration design. Artists, illustrators and graphic designers use Illustrator to create vector-based graphics which — contrary to raster-based editors such as Adobe Photoshop — can be easily rescaled without the loss of quality. E.g., Illustrator is often used to quickly transform hand-drawn sketches on a sheet of paper into lively and colorful digital images.

However, to master Adobe Illustrator isn’t easy; and the creating process of professional illustrations requires both time and patience. Therefore tutorials can turn out to be real life- and time-savers as they show exactly what needs to be done in order to create professional illustrations and how masters of illustration actually manage to do their magic. One year ago we’ve presented a hand-picked collection of Illustrator tutorials1. Now it’s time for a fresh portion of healthy and creative Illustrator material.

In this post we present a collection of excellent Adobe Illustrator tutorials for beginners and advanced designers. The new selection isn’t enormous, but big enough to provide you with some good starting points.

Please notice that

  • we’ve selected only those tutorials which haven’t been featured last year or were released after the article was published.
  • you might also be interested in Adobe Photoshop Tutorials – Best Of2 we’ve presented few weeks ago.

    Hello,

    Can anyone here respond to a question? I have a mini Mac for starters and had hoped to run some very old Adobe Illustrator software, i.e, version 5.0 from about 1994. I called Adobe and of course its too old to upgrade and the current Macs apparently cant recognize this old fashioned code. Thus, does anyone have any ideas as to if there are ways to run old versions of software like this? I just want some basic geometry tools and dont want to spend the dough on the latest Adobe stuff. If anyone has suggestions or can offer advice, Id appreciate your time!

    Thanks,

    Doc

    Hello,

    Last night I found a new free vector drawing program which seems to be what I need; have not had time to work with it, but there are several new shareware and free programs that are available for drawing, which is nice to see!!

    here is a link for you to look into FYI: http://www.inkscape.org/
