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. He also explores seamlessly repeating tile patterns, blobs and brushes, and imported images. He wraps things up with a look at one of the deepest features in Illustrator, transparency. Exercise files accompany the training.
Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals is a recommended prerequisite for this course. Look for the third part in the series, Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Mastery, later this year.
