Lesson 9. Basic Pen Tool Techniques > Combining curved and straight path segmen...

Combining curved and straight path segments

Now that you’ve learned how to draw straight and curved paths individually, you’ll put them together to create paths that combine corner points and smooth ones. Smooth anchor points have directional lines that are opposite each other, 180° apart. Corner points either have no directional lines, only one directional line, or two directional lines that are at an angle that is not 180°.

Combining two curved segments at a sharp angle

One of the more challenging combinations is two curved paths that come together in a corner angle. You’ll do that now and discover that it’s not so difficult after all.
