Quick Tip: Create a Pixel Portrait with The Live Paint Bucket


In this Quick Tip, not only will you see my very first video tutorial for Vectortuts+, you will also learn some of my best tips and tricks for creating pixel illustrations in vector. We will be using the Grid Tool, the Live Paint Bucket Tool and the Shape Builder Tool. You will also learn some indepth tips about the swatches panel and how to create clean and bright colors with the HSB color sliders.

This tutorial is great for people who want to make a cute looking illustration but may not be comfortable with the pen tool yet. This tutorial requires very little drawing skills! While the video may be long, there's points where you can skip ahead or pause if you want to follow along. So what are you waiting for? Let's begin!
