Exercises

The sample files in this chapter showed the Idol graphic, a nice, simple face shape created solely by Vector graphics. The following exercises will enhance your skills and confidence.

  1. Without using the sample files, try to create a new face shape. This should have two eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Then add some hair, a hat, and a bow tie. All of these can be created with the Vector tools covered in this hour.

  2. Decorate an egg! Use the Ellipse tool to create your basic shape, then see how creative you can be. Think about the intricate designs of Fabergé eggs and see what you can do. It is one thing to create free shapes but quite another to find yourself working in an enclosed area, such as within a shape.

  3. Try some body shaping. For all eternity, people have tried to find the easiest way to lose or gain weight, so see how Fireworks does this. Use multiple round shapes to create a roundish person. Then use the vector tools to reshape the paths and turn the round person into something close to a stick person.
