  3. A very good and easy to understand tutorial with a surprising amount of depth. It’s absolutely fantastic to see vectips up and running again! I have to say it did leave a certain gap on the internet for me,… so really glad to see it brought back to life again!

  4. Great advices!
    There’s only one problem for me (not with the tutorial). I can’t erase the top of the last N and the beginning of the C in the CNN logo. When I try to do so with the Eraser tool the C and the N shorten but stay round instead of losing the round edge. My guess is that im doing something wrong in this last step. Can you help me?

  5. Thanks for this. I always relied on the Scissor tool bc i never knew how to properly use the eraser. Thanks!!

  6. This is great for someone just trying to get familiar with the illustrator tools and functions. Especially coming from a a strict photoshop only background. Thanks. Looking forward to further exploring this site

  7. showing work in the steps with animated gifs like a video tutorial is a great technique!
    actually this hybrid technique may be much better than a video tutorial in some situations, now the following the steps are more easy.

    this tutorial is great and inspiring for first learners.

    hope to see also more expert tips and tricks for experienced users with this hybrid technique :)
