Lesson 5. Using Points and Paths > Using the Freeform Tool

Using the Freeform Tool

Now that you’ve completed the cyclist, you will add your image to another document to create an ad page. You could have drawn all of the elements in one document, but by creating separate documents, you can easily add the cyclist to other pages if needed.

Hopefully, by now you are getting the hang of using the Pen tool. Don’t worry if you still feel awkward using the tool—it takes lots of practice. In this task, you will use the Pen tool to draw the mountains, but then you will switch to the Freeform tool to modify the curves instead of using the control handles as you did previously. The Freeform tool lets you modify a path by pushing, pulling, or reshaping. As you use the tool, points are automatically added or deleted on the path.
