I LOVE YOU! Thank you so much! The pen tool is like trying to stop a pipe that's bursting out water for me xD
Very well explained, fun, and simple to follow.
Thanks again :D <3

The Pen Tool hasn't always been a friend for me. Sometimes it can be a pain and seem so difficult you wonder what you're doing wrong, because of how hard it can be to get the right shapes out of it. Today just seems to be one of those days for me and artwork. :disbelief:

But I try my best to be patient and keep on using it anyway, cause it still gives be the best results for outlining.

I don't think that the Pixlr Editor has it. If not, is there a way to imitate the pen tool on it?

It's a good tutorial, but I fail at the very beginning with this...Anchorpoints or whatever....It NEVER looks like your examples...neither like a normal curve :cling:

Great tutorial, really helpful! I've got a question, if you make two shapes using the pen tool that intersect each other, when you fill the path the intersection isn't filled - do you know if there's a way to get it to fill the intersection too?

THANK YOU FOR THIS. :thumbsup: I tried messing around with the pen tool the other day and all I was able to make was some oddly shaped objects. This tutorial is a bit complex but so is the tool so I'm gonna have to read it a few times before I fully get it.

This tutorial is very usefull, I've tried to vectorized pictures before but with really bad results ^^U. When I have more time I'll put in practice all your tutorial, I really really like it ^^ (specially the flowers that you made using only the pen tool, fantastic! =O). Thank you so much for posting it =D. Goes to my favorites *-*
