In today’s video I’m going to walk you through how to design your own graphics in Adobe Photoshop (or Illustrator) using the handy-dandy pen tool. I’ll first give you an overview of how it works, and then I’ll actually dive in and do an illustration of my cute Boston Terrier while you follow along with your own design!

“Glare” is the term for the eye thing LOL. Awesome tutorial. Very Very Cool!!!
Zach, I think its called a “glint”
Design training! Design training! We want Design Training! 😉 Just trying to light a fire under your butt. 😉
Nice tutorial Zach. I learned something new with the way that you can make one of the handles go a different direction by holding the alt and using the Convert Point tool. Also nice trick with anchoring one shape to the other in the layers pallet. Thanks again Zach for the lesson. Looking forward to more. 😉
Ha ha aha thanks Buzz.
And yeah, I bind layers to each other all the time — it’s very very handy.
I noticed you can delete several anchor points in a row quite quickly and I heard you said you use the ctrl>z command (Undo). My Photoshop only lets me do one ctrl>z and then I have to use the history tool for any mistakes after that. I checked Preferences out to see if I can control the amount of Undo’s but did not see it. Do you know a way to make Photoshop give you more Undo’s than one? Thanks.
Yep! You use ctrl + alt + z, which is “step backward.”
