Tracing a hand drawn sketch & Converting to vector artwork Ep15/19 [Adobe Illustrator for Beginners]
16

In this video, we are going to use the drawing tools in Adobe illustrator to trace a drawing. We are going to be using the pen tool, the brush tool, the blob brush tool and the Eraser tool to convert a scanned in sketch drawing into vector artwork.

By the end of this tutorial you will be very familiar with the drawing tools and equipt with the knowledge to create your own artwork. I will also be sharing some of my tips and tricks.

FYI
In this video tutorial I will be using Adobe Illustrator CC for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
