CHALLENGE SERIES


Feeling frustrated or overwhelmed in Illustrator as a beginner? Trying new techniques as an experienced user? One of my favorite parts of having a YouTube channel and Website is being able to interact and support other artists and students going the the process. Here are a few ways to get Adobe Illustrator online support based on your needs, public profile, and level of subscription.

Step by Step

Each of the Challenge Series Tutorials are broken down into slow and easy to follow steps for brand new artists to follow. We take a little extra time to go through each of the tools and procedures that will make you frustrated as a beginner.

Adobe Resources

Each of our Challenges comes with an anchor point guides, color palettes, and multiple instructional videos. Everything is provided through our resource folder for you to follow along at home or in the classroom.

Beginner Workflows

Each Challenge takes on a specific beginner workflow or challenge and works through it from start to finish. The goal is to simplify the program so you can develop beginner workflows to advance your knowledge of the program.

Testimonials

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your tutorials. It’s one think to draw on paper, yet another to create artwork directly in Illustrator and yet again a completely different game to take hand drawn work into Illustrator. You’ve managed to make this process make sense and again, I thank you for your video tutorials, they’ve been a real godsend.jeremy rozen

I appreciate your videos. I have been an illustrator user for years and have my own ways of doing things. It’s great to see other ways of using tools and learning tricks I didn’t know were available! It’s also good to see you doing the same thing as me in other instances, confirming I’m on the right track!Andy Zenz
