Things I’ve Learned: Bézier Curves Can Bite Me

We’re getting a little familiar with Illustrator. I’ve downloaded my free trial, and our first task after getting familiar with the workspace was to copy a very simple logo. This involved using Bézier curves, which I quickly learned I do not have a natural aptitude for.

The side of my thumb hurts from mashing down on it to try and bend my curves into submission.

I was not entirely successful by any means:

wobbly
Wobbly.

There’s an online game https://bezier.method.ac/ to help learn how to work with the pen tool and those incorrigible curves. Think I’m going to be spending some time in there to try and get a little better.
