step by step

Dan is a wonderful instructor easy to follow and understand step by step.

the tasks are so carefully planned and explained so well, step by step.

I found that I had to constantly pause and replay because he simply covers content too quickly and misses the step by step processes, leaving you to wonder "what did he just do?".

Great step by step tutorial.

This course is excellent in that the lecturer is easy to listen to and the learning is step by step and thorough.

The approach of walking step by step to create a real project is tremendously helpful.

It's simplified and step by step so anyone at any level can follow along.

it is clear and instruction is step by step.

Love the step by step instructions, and you can jump back when needed.

I know about 1/2 of the keys but that's all~ Great step by step tutorial in how to use adobe illustrator essentials!

It is a very didactic course and easy to follow, i really liked the way to explain the exercises step by step OK, I am convinced.

Step by step and good for beginners like me.

Just wish the dude would slow down a bit so I don't have to keep pausing or rewindind lol #Amazeballs Very helpful, step by step instruction to show the essential features of AI Really enjoying the course so far.

I enjoy the step by step process and reasons behind some functions.

so far so good

:D cheers good i recommended to my friends this course is real amazing So far so good.

I've grabbed some new uses about how to use simple tools in adobe illustrator and the mentor speaks clearly about everything, so i'm satisfied yet, so far so good.

So far so good.

:) really informative and creative way of learning :) so far so good Yes.

good so far so good Everything is explained very well and it's easy to follow Dan along during the tutorials - the exercises are arranged in a logical manner that allows you to build on your knowledge and the assignments allow you to work on your own creations and give you a feeling of achievement.

Definitely recommend so far so good.

So far so good... Great, this makes improve well The best!

So far so good わかりやすい! This is a great course for beginners, but this itself isn't sufficient.

real world

The way he has given examples are really superb and useful to the real world projects.

I love the real world Exercises to sump up everything I learned.

This course uses a lot of real world examples, which is great for me because I am a visual learner.

Not all the examples were applicable to the real world use, unlike the Photoshop course which was excellent.

The only thing id request is to maybe include 3-4 more of the real world logo exercises.

Real world exercises ... Great idea.

Also, the exercises were very well designed and I will certainly use the techniques used in my own real world designs.

I didn't mind the repeated shortcut mentions and helpful tips...anything to help workflow become more efficient will help translate into the real world.

I suggest adding more real world applications other than logos or adding a whole project for example at the end of the course.

Real world projects.

Really great use of demonstrating tools which are applicable to real world projects!

Lots of real world applicability for me.

You learn by real world application and by doing.

It is very hands on and teaches how to use the tools in a real world way.

Thank you Phil Ebiner and Daniel Walter Scott for this gift.

way he teaches

Enjoyed the way he teaches and the course.

I struggle with taking things in but the way he teaches I'm remembering everything.

I have been following this instructor since I got into Udemy and I love the way he teaches!

Coming from inkscape there is a lot off differences and this really helps a lot on filling in the gaps The way he teaches is just awesome.

couple of times

I learned a lot, got stuck a couple of times but learned that Illustrator is a very important part of a designer's repertoire.

I had to pause and go back a couple of times.

I can follow through eventhough I pause and rewind it a couple of times.

I ran into a couple of issues and had to restart a couple of times.

shape builder

I have also fallen in love with the Shape Builder Tool now!

5 Stars... because I was introduced to the shape builder tool lol XD but in all honestly, another greatly presented course by Dan covering all you need to know to get started with illustrator.

Having completed the course, it's also been fun to now look at logos and other pieces of design and think "Hey that's a nice gradient" or "I think I could make that with the shape builder tool."

After just a week of study, I already feel confident creating my own (2D) graphics using a combination of the shape builder, pen, pencil and various other tools, and the course is ticking all the boxes for me.

And wait till you get to the Shape Builder Tool!

I now know there are trade-offs between the pen and curvature tools, and in a pinch it's actually not that hard to draw a bazillion polygons and then Shape Builder all the unnecessary parts away into an equivalent shape.

I'm especially thankful for Shape Builder part, because I've hated it for so long, because I wasn't using it correctly :D Thank you so much for your work, it was definatelly worth it.

The course is worth it just for the demonstration of Shape Builder.

older version

I have the older version of illustrator so certain things like getting the rounded corners were not as easily available to me (I went to search on how to do that) but other than that, instructions were really easy to follow and I actually got through!

Very good course for absolute beginners, I can now do very interesting stuff For Adobe Illustrator CC this one is perfect, but for older versions like C6 and below we have to refer small tips from outside this course.

however if you have an older version of illustrator there are something that the instructor doesn`t mention(ex.rounding of shapes) Yes great, match it just enhanced my adobe illustrator perspective by a million.

I have an older version of the software (CS6) so some of the tools he uses are not in my version.

I would definitely recommend this course for anyone interested in Adobe Illustrator even with an older version of it.

self taught

I was self taught in illustrator but never had proper training and workflow.

Having used Illustrator for a while and am self taught almost everything within Illustrator this is gives me insight to so much I have not yet figured out or mastered.

I use Illustrator at work, but I self taught myself, I have learnt so many good things on this course.

Never in a million years did I think I would be a self taught illustrator, but here I am!

I've been mostly self taught in Illustrator, this course has done a great job of explaining how and why to use particular tools.
