My Thoughts on the Pen ToolMay 5, 2012 No Comments
When it comes to creating posters, flyers, newsletters, magazines or any graphic logo you can use the pen tool to create dynamic and impressive images. When working with the pen tool it can be tricky trust me I know. When I first started using it I was so completely lost and confused because it is very hard to work with when you don’t know how to use it. But the more and more I used it the better I got with it.
I find that the Pen Tool can be an amazing tool to use in almost anything. I have used it to create dynamic shapes, logos, and interesting images to create an interesting poster that catches people’s eye. I feel that it is necessary for everyone in the graphic design business should know how to use the Pen Tool like a pro. It is time consuming but there is a definite plus to keep trying and not giving up like I almost did. I got frustrated with it and I did get confused because nothing ever seemed to go write when I used it, but I knew that it was a must for the profession that I was going to go into.
There are many tutorials that can help show a person how to work the Pen Tool like a pro but the most successful thing I have done is practice. I feel that practice makes perfect and if you want a perfect logo, flyer, ad or graphic, practice, practice, practice.
As far as the Pen Tool and my relationship with it now, well I love it! I enjoy playing around with it and use the Pen Tool to create all kinds of designs with it. I find that it is great to create banners, simple flower shapes, and I couldn’t live without it now that I have mastered it like a pro!
