How to Easily Sketch with the Pen Tool in Illustrator

It can be very frustrating to sketch fashion flats in Illustrator with the Pen Tool.

And if you’ve ever said “I just don’t know what weird thing it’s going to do next” when you’re sketching, you’re not alone.

  • Visualize where to drop anchor points around the outline of your fashion sketch (0:46)
  • Use the Reshape Tool to curve paths (1:36)
