    Adobe Illustrator: Where to start from?

    I want to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator but I really don't know where to start from.

    Hi Olympia! I hope it's not too late to give my reply. Skillshare has a lot of pretty high quality tutorials on Illustrator. I learned to control the damn pen tool on skillshare, which I'm grateful for. You do have to pay for their subscription plan for premium classes (which are most of the classes), BUT newcomers do get 3 months of skillshare for only $0.99 (which is totally worth it because you learn something new and practical every hour of using Skillshare, depending on which classes you choose to take). Then later if you learned all you have to learn, you can cancel your membership before the 3 month period, which was what I did. Or, you could start learning from youtube, but a lot of youtube tutorials are a pain in the butt to understand. Skillshare: http://skl.sh/1QZYe9a

    If you don't mind me asking, why do you want to learn Illustrator? You want to become a graphic designer?

    If you need more info you can check out my hub ("Top Online Learning Sites Review") where I posted a review on Skillshare and some classes I recommend. However, don't feel obligated to.  smile

    Hope this helps!

      Cool! I wish you the best of luck! Spoon graphics (youtube channel) may help you with your process. He focuses more on illustrator techniques, but my fav graphic design youtube channel is karen kavett.

      Actually I have a fine art education, though I've never worked with Adode programs. So, it's time to learn something new!

      Learning to do things digitally has its pros and cons. I try not to rely on software that much when I'm working on my projects because everyone's doing the same thing. Illustrator is a great tool to have in your arsenal! I am weak in fine arts.
