Tracing a drawing with the pen tool in Illustrator
Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 30/06/2008
In this tutorial we"ll trace a scanned drawing with the pen tool in Illustrator. The image will be used as a vector illustration and icon. We will only draw half the part of the figure and flip the other part so that we have a 100% symmetric object/character. By drawing just a half, we’ll save some time. (you can import a sketch to work on). Feel free to post your sketches or drawings to the Flickr group Sketch and Draw.
