After learning the fundamentals of drawing and reshaping paths in Adobe Illustrator CS4, the fun really begins. In Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Advanced, the second installment in the popular One-on-One series, computer graphics expert Deke McClelland explores some of Illustrator's most powerful and least understood features. He shows how to merge simple shapes to create complex ones with the Pathfinder palette and how to align paths to create schematic illustrations. Deke explains how to paint fluid, multicolor fills with blends, Gradient Mesh, and the new and improved gradient tools.
