Section 1

Custom Brushes

In this part, Justin Cook teaches how to setup custom brushes for the inking stage of the tutorial. A wacom tablet (to use the pressure sensitive pen tools) is not required, but would come in handy if you have one available.

Section 2


In this session, Justin will ink over his entire sketch using the custom brushes setup in the first tutorial. You'll learn about the importance of line variance, manipulating vector points, changing line definition after you've initially set it, and much, much more. Also if you would like to use your own drawing to trace over, you're welcome to!

Section 4

Final Shading

In this last tutorial, Justin will finish coloring the piece by adding gradients and shadowing to the skin and clothes. This can give your vector artwork a less-flat look and appear as if it were colored in a program like Photoshop, but instead you'll still be working exclusively in Illustrator.
