Chapter 7. Using Adobe Illustrator CS2 > Drawing Basic Vector Objects

Drawing Basic Vector Objects

Back in Chapter 2, “So Many Applications: Which One to Use?” we discussed the underlying basics of vector graphics. Now you'll learn how to draw them. We begin with drawing closed paths, and then we move on to drawing open paths. Finally, we discuss how to edit existing vector paths and objects.

Drawing Closed Vectors: Shapes

Illustrator can draw primitive shapes quite easily, and several shape tools enable you to create rectangles, ellipses (circles and ovals), polygons (multisided shapes), and stars. We go through each of these tools and how they are used, but, of course, the best way to get to know them is to launch Illustrator and try them for yourself.
