Illustrator Training: Essential Skills 2

"I think the section on the appearance panel will help me a lot when it comes to creating graphics for work. Some things I have to do have been manipulated by someone else, and I have been trying to figure out how it was done, and Now I have a better idea on how it was done, and what I need to do to get it from AI to captivate. I also got a lot of practice with short cut keys, and that was good for me to try and get them into my muscle memory." - Diane
