Adobe Illustrator Draw: Flat Illustration Tutorial

Learn how to use Adobe Draw and create a flat illustration using an iPad Pro. Adobe Illustrator Draw is a free app on any iOS device that allows you to create vector illustrations which you can open up inside Illustrator CC, how cool is that?

So whatever you draw inside it, you can later export it and use it on your computer.

In today’s tutorial I’ll share my design process of a flat illustration, this one is part of a series I’m doing and the first theme is reading.

If you want to follow along, you can do the same thing on your laptop or computer inside Illustrator CC by using the brush tool.

You can download the sketch of the flat illustration, the layered vector file and the texture I’ve used for free here:

You’re free to use the illustration that’s shown in this Adobe Draw tutorial in any of your projects, consider it royalty free.

The first step for any illustration is to draw the initial idea through a sketch, I’ve started with some very basic stick figures and whenever you want to improve the sketch, just lower the opacity of that layer and create a new one on top. Start adding elements and your idea should come to life.

The second step is to use the Brush tool and block in each shape, I’d suggest having each group of elements (skin, clothes, background etc.) on an individual layer.

Once you have them arranged, your flat illustration is done.

I really had fun drawing using Adobe Illustrator Draw, for the next video maybe I’ll use Procreate, since that’s the app I’m using most often on the iPad Pro.
