Our Graphic Design for Print and Web students learn how to master the Mesh Tool in the second section of our Adobe Illustrator for Designers course. Students explore advanced colouring tools, live effects and illustration techniques during a self-guided technical drawing project. Each student selects an object of their choice in order to recreate a realistic vector illustration using Adobe Illustrator’s Gradient Mesh tool to add depth and realism to their technical drawings.
