Tutorial Practice Templates
Practice Practice Practice
This page contains all the practice templates for
drawing with the pen. Here are tutorials for Deneba
Canvas™, Adobe® Illustrator®,
Adobe Photoshop®, Macromedia®
FreeHand® and CorelDRAW®.
These tutorials are setup for both Macintosh®
and Windows® platforms.
You might ask, "What are Photoshop tutorials doing
here in the vector application section?" Using
the pen in Adobe Photoshop is virtually the same as
using the pen in Adobe Illustrator. Learning pen skills
really belongs here with the other vector applications.
I have linked the Photoshop section of the web site
to these pages for learning the pen.
These tutorials are short and fun. Make sure to download
the setup sheet for the application you are using. The
setup is very straightforward. Except for Photoshop
(which rasterizes the PDF file...turns it into a bitmap),
you simply load the tutorial PDF file into the drawing
application, then lock the layer containing the template,
then add a new layer and draw on that new layer. The
reason you keep the template on a locked layer is because
the template contains vector objects which can get selected
and altered otherwise. Don't worry, it's really simple.
All the instructions are in the setup sheets.
The tutorials are setup in sequence starting with the
easiest ones. Each one gives you a different skill.
By the time you get to the last one you will see how
it all comes together. They have been purposely setup
to take advantage of keyboard shortcuts so you don't
have to return to the tool palette once the pen tool
has been selected.
The whole point is to train you to take advantage of
the keyboard shortcuts so you will draw faster, smoother
and more fluidly.
