Illustrator takes lots of practice and thats simply what we have been doing in class. In today's lecture was more review about using the pen tool, pathfinder, and creating more shapes. One trick I never knew was that you could add or subtract the points in the star tool. Our exercise today dealt with recreating common logos by creating shapes, using the pen tool with outlines and fills, and cutting shapes with the knife tool.
The top image is my own copies of the logos and the bottom image consists of the originals.
