Silhouettes are fun, quick and easy projects to take on if you want to learn new tools and processes in any software. 

In our new course, Vector Silhouettes for Beginners, you'll learn how to use essential tools in Adobe Illustrator while creating two silhouette-based projects. This course is perfect for beginners with a very basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, and it includes no use of the Pen Tool!

What You’ll Learn

In this course, you'll learn some important tools and techniques in Adobe Illustrator by creating two practical projects.

Sharon Milne, the Design & Illustration Editor here at  Envato Tuts+, will guide you through each project step by step. First you'll create a simple but elegant profile:

Then, when you've mastered that, you'll move on to create a cute scene of a cat sitting in a window staring out at the moonlit night:

In creating these two illustrations, you'll learn plenty of skills and techniques that you can use in your own projects.
