Lesson 6. Drawing Vector Graphics > Drawing combinations of curved and straight...

Drawing combinations of curved and straight segments

When you drew curves for the previous shape, two direction lines pivoted together around each anchor point. Those anchor points are called smooth points because they connect segments as a continuous curve. You can use the pen tool with a modifier key to drag each of the two direction lines at different angles, converting a smooth point into a corner point with two direction lines that move independently. The only difference between the corner points you first created in this lesson and the corner points you'll create in this section is that these corner points will have direction lines.
