The very first Illustrator class was loads easier than Photoshop. One big difference is how the teacher is presenting the class. Very well done.
However, my first assignment only netted me an 85%. I am struggling a bit to get my head around the whole Adobe software setup, so I spent more time figuring out how to use the tools than trying to smooth out the look of the piece. It is very rough.
Assignment: Paint over the top of a photo of yourself using the “brushes” and “pen” tools.
