Illustrator/Vector Tutorial Part One by Capt-Nemo Illustrator/Vector Tutorial Part One by Capt-Nemo
HOLY CELESTIA'S MOTHER OF GIGANTIC TUTORIALS, BATMAN

Sorry the tutorial is so long, but that's just how I make 'em! Hopefully it'll be useful to you all.

Part Two: [link]

Edit: Somebody told me there is a sweet tool in Illustrator CS5 called the Width Tool. It lets you change the width of lines at specific points without having to convert strokes to outlines! I suggest you use that. Check out this tutorial: [link]
All you need to do is add a width point at the end of the stroke, double-click it, and change the total width to zero.

Edit two: I was informed of the "Draw Inside" tool also found in CS5. This tool automates the usage of clipping masks and makes them much easier to use. Check out a video here!

Here is the finished vector: [link]

And you can download the SVG here, layers and everything: [link]

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'm here to help.
If you find any errors, please tell me so I can fix them.

Why the brush stroke isn't willing to convert the same way. Shame on that tool ~ may it be ashamed! :)

Wow, now that I look at it, while zoomed out, it really does look long. :D

Either way, it showed me some essential steps, which I could do nothing without ~ regardless of my experience with Adobe products. For that, I thank you!

Hopefully, I'll be able to do stuff, like pasting a vector part on top of another to make an exact "cut" ~ just like things work in flash, if you try to put them on each other.

Tut is amazing. I didn't know you could turn lines into fills like that! Would have saved me a lot of time if I did! =P

Drink a coffee, and it won't be boring to read.

Videos are great, but you remember what you read more easily.

Adobe Illustrator 10, though it should work with most versions of Illustrator.

I know it's not that great but it was my first attempt at a vector. I had some difficulty because of the differences between Photoshop and Illustrator, but I like it and I never would have figured it out without you. So thanks so much! ^_^

After tranforming the lines to outlines, there is a way to change them back to lines?
