In SECTIONS 1 - 11 of this Adobe Illustrator CC course, I will show you how to work with the New Features, Tools and Techniques that were released with the First Version of Adobe Illustrator - Creative Cloud. These updated features were first released in 2013. This simple course was designed for the experienced Illustrator user who recently upgraded to the Creative Cloud version of Adobe Illustrator.
The Step-by-Step Tutorials in this course are perfect for anyone who already has a basic working knowledge of the application. It is for those who just want to know the "New Stuff".
This course will start off with a brief discussion of the newest Preferences and then jump right in to such topics as updated Guide Features, Placing Multiple Images, the New Free Transform Tool Widget and even new Font Search Methods. We will then go through an in-depth and very entertaining discussion of the All-New Touch Type Tool and all the fun things you can now do with type editing.
The bulk of the rest of this course will cover the use of another All-New Feature: The Image-Based Brushes. You can literally paint photographs right into your Illustrator files! We will go through the methods to paint realistic ropes, thorny vines and leafy branches right before your eyes.
This course will then wrap up with a discussion of the new updated features for working with Pattern Brushes along with the All-New Image-Based Pattern Brush option as well really fun stuff to play with!

I will start the second half of this course with a brief demonstration on Resetting the CC 2014 Illustrator Workspace. Then you will go through the steps to Creating a New Custom Tools Panel. After the initial Workspace Setup, you will work with the New Live Rectangles Feature and then go through the All-New Pen Tool Previews Feature.

What are the requirements?
Students should have the Most Recent Creative Cloud version of Adobe Illustrator to be able to follow along and work on the same tools as shown in the tutorials. However, this course can also be beneficial to those who have not upgraded to Creative Cloud yet, but might be using the application at work or school. The best way to follow along is to download the supplied working demo files in Section One so you can work along with me.
