More about Adobe Illustrator:
  • Illustrator is the industry-standard vector graphics application that lets you create logos, icons, sketches, typography and complex illustrations for print, web, interactive, video and mobile devices.
  • Its time saving features allow users to create work quickly and efficiently at the highest professional standard.


A closer look at what you will learn:
  • We will start with the basics, so you feel totally at ease with the interface, preferences, setting up new documents. We will also cover fundamental principles like the difference between vector and pixel graphics.
  • The next two chapters will teach you everything you need to know about working with objects in Illustrator. These are the buildings blocks of all vector graphics so these initial lessons will help you to understand and work with more complex tools later on.
  • Next up, in the drawing section of the course, master drawing modes, the Pen tool, Curvature tool and all the different ways you can draw and manipulate paths.
  • Next learn about the different types of Brushes and how to make the most of their unique features. You will also learn how to create your own custom brushes.
  • In the next chapters you will learn about tracing photographs with a powerful feature called Image Trace and everything you need to know about adding type to your illustrations.
  • Once you are comfortable with all of that you can move onto the Advanced Techniques section, which will introduce more complex features like Symbols, Graphs, Gradient Meshes, Perspective Drawing, Recolor Artwork and workflows like Masking.
  • Finally, discover how to correctly export your work for print and screen, and ways to share and archive your projects.


"An outstanding course! I've taken many Udemy courses where the instructor just rambles on, or circles around the same point several times. But here, every word uttered is part of the lesson. No fluff, no uhms, no nonsense. With that level of focus, it's very easy to follow, learn and remember." Laurie Knapp

A well put together course by a great teacher! The last chapter wrapped up a great learning experience with a cherry on the top on how to create your own portfolio.I manage designers and wanted to know what it takes to ideate, create, and work on a tool like Illustrator so I can make the lives of our designers easier.

The teaching is good, but the version he is using is not the latest version. I had to spend much time trying to figure out how to import assets and library features from cloud environment. This was frustrating and disorienting because the assets he assumes are there were not there for me in first lesson.

Thank you Martin for this amazing course.Everything is clear, easy to follow and well-organized.Totally love all the exercise and quiz and still learning more from your YouTube channel.Best course ever !!!

Loving that I can take these courses at my own pace, matching my schedule. I love the instructor, Martin. He stays on point, and he is very clear on each subject, speaking at the right pace. He deserves a raise or chocolate :-) Roxann L.

The course is great, the only thing is that I asked a question a month ago about an issue I was having on the lecture and haven't had any response yet. It seems like the instructor is not active here.

I have no experience using Illustrator but have spent time watching others who can use it with jealously. I finally decided to take the plunge and decided this looked like a good way to begin. I'm blown away but Martin's course. I can already do things that I thought we're super advanced and only for the gifted and talented few. Thank you Martin!

I'm excited about this course. Martin did a really good job and I can say that after finishing the course I will consider myself an advanced user of Illustrator.Martin became my favorite lecturer!

Great instructor.I tried a few online courses before but had difficulty finishing them. I usually get bored somewhere along the way and wander off.NOT THIS TIME. I was able to finish the entire course within a short span of 3 weeks and enjoyed it greatly.Highly recommended.

Lots of info and fully went though all the features. Easy to understand. Would have given 5 stars if there were a few more lessons that went a little more slowly, and included more hands on practice.

It was amazing !! Martin is the best teacher ever! All information in this course was super interesting, necessary and useful. Thank you so much :)

This course is a fulfilling, informative, and most importantly fun! I started off barely knowing anything about this program and now feel very knowledgeable and capable when using it. No detail was left out in the duration of the course and the instructor explained everything beautifully. I highly recommend this course!!!!

Awesome course. Im a Computer Science Engineer and I really liked each small point covered in the course.Thanx So much. You are a blessed teacher.This course is sososos helpful to master the skills of illustration.I strongly recommend this course.
