    Hi i dont know if you’ll answer Matt Borchert but i have a question, you
    know when using the pen tool it does automatically a colored line so my
    question is : does it have an option with the pen tool that permit to not
    do line but do a SELECTION just like with the lasso tool i was using on
    photoshop thanks for answering me?

    Hey Matt. Awesome channel. And thanks for taking the time to create these
    gr8 tutorials. Any chance you might have an idea what would cause jagged
    edges on an object that has a shape like the nike logo in this vid?

    Trying to assist a friend with a logo, which uses a similar curved lines.
    And at 100% some are jagged, yet when zoomed in they’re not.?

    striche… also mehr kringel.

  27. Cheryl Vargas says:

    much better tutorial than other one on same subject. it would have been
    helpful to tell WHY you were doing layer masks. That part didn’t make
    sense to me. Can I accomplish the same results without doing a layer mask??

  28. MrJBLAZE93 says:

    How did you make your layer’s do that? Like when I have my layers locked
    and my layer with the new color on in it it still overlaps my other
    layer’s. .new to illustrater btw?
