Adobe Illustrator Tutorial: Sketch to Vector (3/3)
Step by Step Adobe Illustrator Tutorial from Sketch to Vector will start from a traced stock image that we will finish in Adobe Illustrator. The second video will be for those who just opened up their tablet and are looking to gain a little more practice getting down your lines using the Pencil Tool. This video we will be adding on our Cartoon Brushes and Finishing using Live Paint.
You will have more control over the placement and width of each of your lines using the Cartoon Brushes. The process will be a combination of using the Brushes to get down the initial thickness and stroke width. The second step will be modifying the placement of the variation using the so we can edit later.

Open Other Library
2. In your Brushes Panel, Window – Brushes. In the Bottom Left Hand Corner you will see a Brushes Library icon that looks like books. Click on it and scroll down to Other Library. Open Brush Library from folder.
Adding Line Weight
3. Depending on your own Style or preference, I would recommend adding a little more line weight to your artwork. The mistake I see a lot of beginners make is keeping the line weight at 1pt.
4. We have 17 Brush Libraries in our folder. You can use any one of them during this tutorial. All you have to do is line up the thin edge which will be floating in space. The Thick ends will represent our values which will be merging into other areas and strokes.
Use a Phone or Tablet to view the video as a second viewing device. This removes the toggling back and forth on your computer from YouTube to Illustrator. If you are watching on YouTube app the comments are below so you can immediately ask a question if you are stuck. Ask early and often!
If you are new to the channel or a beginner at Adobe Illustrator, I highly recommend starting with our beginner playlists or longer challenge series.
