Vectoring Process Using Adobe Illustrator | Week 3 Drawing School Supplies
If you have ever wonder how I use Procreate to create my artwork I’m going to show you! This is Part 3 in my series where I will show you how I vector my final artwork, using Adobe Illustrator.
I prefer to sketch and ink out my first ideas using Procreate, similar to a sketch book. I never use Procreate for my finals. Procreate has pixelation issues when you rotate or resize things. I see this complaint all of the time on the Procreate community forums. So, like a sketchbook, I draw out my ideas and then send it to my computer to finalize and tweak.
As always there are 100 ways to do something. This is simply the process I prefer to use when vectoring. I don’t like Affinity Designer on the iPad. I’ve been using Adobe Illustrator on a Mac for over 20 years. It’s my go-to, most comfortable method for vectoring.
Yes, image trace has its place in vectoring. But nothing beats the good ‘ol pen tool!
