In this post, we’re highlighting our top 3 most-viewed Illustrator tutorial videos, as they rank on our YouTube channel.

Adobe Illustrator is a widely used vector graphics editor software program that allows users to create vector art and illustrations using a variety of precision drawing tools and functions. We carry Adobe Illustrator training courses on CS5, CS6, and the latest Creative Cloud (CC) version.

Here are the three most popular Illustrator tutorial on our YouTube channel, starting with number one.

 Creating Animations:

With over 45,000 views, our creating animations video comes in as our most-watched Illustrator tutorial. This video teaches you a frame-by-frame way to manually animate images in Illustrator. You usually wouldn’t use Illustrator as an animation tool, but it’s a good place to start, then move into a program like Adobe Flash to finish up.

 Working with Live Paint:

In this tutorial video, author Andy Anderson teaches you how to use the live paint feature in Illustrator. Before you can start painting, you’ll need to convert your drawing into a vector image. To do so, simply go the top panel and click Image Trace. The default setting for Image Trace is to convert the image into a sketch. You’ll then need to click Expand, and it will become a true vector.

Live Color:

The live color window lets you change all of the colors in a selection or in a group all in one operation. In this training video, you’ll learn how to change the colours in a group by using the Live Color tool, add your own colors using the color wheel, and use your new color groups on your selected artwork.
