Last week used the brush tool in Illustrator to trace an image of a demon. We then used expand and live paint to colour or “ink” the image.
This lesson you will use the same technique to trace a comic character and then use the knife tool to cut a direct selection to create a shadow effect.
Teacher demonstration of the knife tool.
