Good luck Luna. Illustrator is a pain in the neck. I've had to work with it in the past and it drove me nuts when I had to do page layouts.

I used to flirt with the computer guy at work so he would help me.

Hi there,
I use a Wacom Intuos 2 Platinum Tablet. It enables you to run A-Ill & AP-shop like a hot knife through butter.
Been in Illustrator since the beginning of AI...its an amazing program, once you learn to use key commands and other little tricks. Practice will get you there. Attached is a sketch done in illustrator...sorry it isnt shoes, but needed to show the program versatility. Hang in there!

I also have a table from Wacom, itīs one of the basics but i love it!
Itīs just fabulous to work in both programs, but i think that it works better in Photoshop because of the details in photography treatment.
As Illustrator is a vectorial program if you donīt have one itīs not that problematic, but i think that in Photoshop is just a must.

I havent got a tablet yet...but as far as fabric rendering, I am pretty sure itsdone more in photoshop than illustrator. I was taught to use photoshop for that, or import the swatch into illustrator.

Yeah, see it seems like you guys are super-knowledgable with these programs anyway, so I'm actually unsure if it's like, "DUH!" But I've just learned the beauty of defining brushes. I knew you could do it, but I didn't think about the fact that you can create some cool fabrics that way. Again, I'm sure you can do more amazing things in that direction with Illustrator--BUT--it's fun! If you mess with the spacing so that it's pretty wide, you can do cool swoopy motions with whatever shape you saved as a brush--anything from stars, boxes, butterflies, etc. And with a tablet, you can make it all pressure sensitive, which is fun. Methinks this would be a fun way to make designs on tee shirts with your illustrations and whatnot. But like I said, you guys have probably already thought about this...

I never did. I think the manual is more for those who teach other people the program, becase they have to know everything.

Practice and hot keys. That's all you need to know.

I have been using Photoshop for my needs since many years, and a bit of Illustrator, too, but neglected it a lot lately, cause i was going more for the "handicrafted" look. i am by no means good at it, i just discover the (basic) features i need by trial and error...
2 questions:
-where can i find a list of illustrator shortcuts?
-can a mimick fabrics/structures in illustrator, too?
