HOW TO FOLLOW ALONG TO OUR ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR TUTORIALS. If you are Following Along on the Website or YouTube, I recommend starting with our Getting Started Guide. It will go through how to Place Anchor Point Guides, Create Artboards, and make Template Layers. Follow Along to the Tutorials to Learn the Basic Building Tools, Editing Options, and Coloring using the Live Paint Bucket.

FOLLOW ALONG TO ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR TUTORIALS. This list of Adobe Illustrator Tutorials will focus on our Build Tools, Illustrator Brushes, Editing Tools, and Basic Coloring Techniques. This list is organized from easiest to more challenging as you scroll down. Each of our Tutorials and Challenges are in a Follow Along Format. You can Simply Click on any of the Thumbnails (below) to Start a Tutorial.

HOW TO FOLLOW ALONG

NEW VISITOR GUIDE TO FOLLOWING ALONG

FOLLOW ALONG TUTORIALS

TIP #1: Welcome to our Website if you are a New Subscriber to our YouTube Channel. The first thing to note is that everything is in a Step by Step format in our Active Learning Curriculum. I would plan 30 Minutes to an Hour per Lesson. You can click on any of the thumbnails (below) to start on an Adobe Illustrator Tutorial or Challenge.

2-SCREEN APPROACH

TIP #2:  I recommend a 2-Screen Approach to Viewing and Following Along. Most of the videos are Formatted to be on a Smaller Screen. This will also prevent you from Pausing and Toggling Back and Forth between YouTube and Illustrator. It will also prevent Shrinking your Screen to View Both at the same Time. Have Illustrator BIG.

BRUSHES + RESOURCES

TIP #3: If you are interested in Following Along to the Adobe Illustrator Beginner Guide and Step by Steps with our Brushes and Tutorial Resources, the First Step is to Download and Extract the Folders. You can Download the Brushes, Textures and Tutorial Resources in our Illustrator Brushes or Resource Bundle.
