ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR FOR IPAD

I’ve been learning Illustrator for 3 weeks. It feels like longer!

It’s a massive program, which I doubt I will have scratched the surface of, even after a year of study.

After beginning on my laptop, I quickly moved onto the iPad in order to draw more easily with the Apple Pencil. It was learning all over again at first!

There are no where near as many visual windows or options as the desktop version. It was like treasure hunting without a map: There is no ‘place’ option, I couldn’t find the eye dropper, where was the keyboard?

I had a hairy few days of frustration as workflow slowed. I didn’t want to go between laptop and iPad all time, I knew it shouldn’t be this time consuming.

And it isn’t. A bit of google and play time and I’m finding my feet with the iPad version. As someone who hand draws much of what I design, I love it.

I’m no way qualified to give any sort of tutorial, but there are some great YouTube tutorials which are really helpful with getting started.
