This tutorial will show how one can use a graphics tablet in Illustrator for drawing and sketching designs. We will start by sketching a simple ark, focusing on the various techniques and shortcuts one can use to sketch all sorts of designs quickly and effectively. You can however try to draw something different, such as a guitar, or a person. This tutorial assumes that you have a basic understanding on how the pen, pencil and brush tools work. You will see how the editing and customization allowed can make sketching in Illustrator preferable to Photoshop.
