I really love the course, he explain the every part in unique and easy way!! Thanks for your efforts to make it so easy and perfect for beginners.

  • Kloe

Daniel Scott is an excellent teacher - really takes his time explaining everything from start to finish. Even as an advanced Adobe Illustrator User, you'll learn a few things you didn't know about - I did anyway!
Lot's of great outside resources discussed such as Toolkit, Adobe Capture, and many other websites to help your designs take shape :)

Definitely recommend to any beginner and/or advanced users looking to expand their knowledge.

  • jahadul

It was an amazing course and I learn a lot of important things. The tutor was excellent and easy to learn from him. I also enjoyed the examination.
Thanks fiverr for the course system.

  • Wendi

My only criticism is that I wish the instructor would slow down. He speaks too fast. Using the audio option to slow down the speed makes him sound intoxicated. Otherwise, the course is awesome. I appreciate having quizzes and assignments. I had no way of handing in my projects. He said to go to Twitter and look him up. I opened a Twitter account for the first time and found the teacher so I left 2 messages for him asking how to submit the homework. What a JOKE. He never got back to me. Relying on social media to hand in homework is UNPROFESSIONAL. NOT IMPRESSED. Wendi Taylor

Just amazing. I've been using Illustrator for years now, and I'm still learning.

  • Hassan

Even though I've been working with Adobe Illustrator since 2013, the new CC effects were pretty new to me. I could have done all of the steps myself using other tools, but this course has given a new perspective to my working. Especially the shortcuts to get things done.
Honestly, I never liked the pathfinder tool, but his use of pathfinder makes me think about changing my mind! Love the new ways to doing stuff!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does an illustrator do?

    Professional illustrators create beautiful artwork for their clients. This artwork can range from drawings for children’s books, through to logos and icons for corporate branding, as well as typography and even visual assets for use in animated videos. Most illustrators either work for agencies or as freelancers; many work right here on Fiverr! In the past, most illustrators worked with pen and ink, or pencil and paper; some still do, but many modern illustrators have switched to software like Adobe Illustrator.

  • What is Illustrator best used for?

    Adobe Illustrator is a vector-based graphics program. Vector images can be rescaled without damaging their quality – unlike raster images created in Photoshop. This makes Illustrator perfect for creating assets like logos, icons, typography, illustrations, and digital drawings that need to be reproduced in different sizes. Generally, Illustrator is used for creating bold graphical work; often, the artist will start from scratch and create a fully finished image. Again, this is different to Photoshop, which is normally used to edit existing images like photographs.

  • Is illustration a good career choice?

    If you’re creative, and you love art and design, then illustration could be the perfect career choice! Many illustrators are freelancers – a great way of working if you want to set your own hours and choose which projects you work on. It’s important to practice and increase your skillset, in order to make a success of your career. Focusing on a niche can also help. You might love logo design, typography, or illustrations; by specializing in a niche, you could build your reputation and secure many orders here on Fiverr.

  • Are illustrators in demand?

    Yes – illustrators are always in demand. The rise of social media platforms like Instagram, and video-sharing platforms like YouTube means that businesses need more help than ever to develop their branding. The growth in online publishing also means many self-published authors need illustrators for their books. Our Logo Design category is one of the most popular on Fiverr; other popular categories include Poster Design, Brochure Design, and Portraits and Caricatures. There are also many offline opportunities to work for marketing or creative agencies.

  • Do I need the Adobe certification to work as a freelance designer?

    Not necessarily; many freelance designers have built successful careers on Fiverr without Adobe certification. Although completing this course won’t lead to you being Adobe Certified, you will earn a badge that will appear on your Fiverr profile. It will also enhance your illustration skills, help you work more efficiently, and improve the quality of your work. Ultimately, the key to success on Fiverr is delivering top-notch work along with exceptional customer service. This will ensure every buyer’s experience is positive, increasing the chances of repeat orders and 5-star reviews!

  • How can I start my illustration career with no previous experience?

    Starting a career in illustration can feel a little scary, but Fiverr is a great place to offer illustration services, and many sellers have built full-time careers on our platform. Taking this course is the perfect way to start; the badge you earn will show buyers that you are skilled and have experience of using Adobe Illustrator. Longer term, the most important thing is not to give up! If you’re committed to learning and practicing your new skills, then you could build an exciting career as a freelance illustrator!
