Adobe Illustrator is a popular software application extensively used by many graphic designers, artists, architects and even engineers to create, draw and design stunning graphics. Graphics created using Adobe Illustrator can be integrated with other graphic design software such as AutoCAD and Photoshop. Adobe Illustrator is widely used for graphic designs because of its vector-based functionality that uses algorithms to draw sketches. This course will take you through the step-by-step process of drawing a steampunk vehicle from start to finish. You will begin by drawing illustrations of a steampunk vehicle using reference images. Following this, you will then be taught how to set up and prepare the Adobe Illustrator workspace for your drawing.

Furthermore, you will be taught how to use the 'Pencil' tool to correct the contour lines of your steampunk vehicle. You will also learn to add fill to your vehicle to make it colourable.
Adding colours to drawings makes them appealing and beautiful to the eye. Artists and graphic designers use colours to entice and induce the mood of viewers.
