    Great tut.  You show all the specifics of the handles, and how to manipulate them correctly; nearly all of the tuts I’ve come across don’t show this.  This was very detailed and easy to get.  Thanks.

    I would rate it 10/10, great tut, I did not know how to use the pen tool, now i do. Thanks once again. This was my first tut I went on to learn, i searched it on youtube, and clicked the link for a hi res, and it was nice to see the author created a website. I DONT think i need to go to another tut to learn the pen tool. Thanks once again.

    Also another request can you make a new tut on how to create a logo which includes a simple motif to represent mountains

    Thanks

    clockwise! just that one word made the whole thing worthwhile. course, the entire thing was worthwhile but my handles go so wacky and the pen tool has always seemed so difficult. I know photoshop very well (NOT illustrator at all) but i’ve stayed away from the pen tool. Now I am less scared of it. CLOCKWISE! brilliant. thanks so much so making such an easy to follow video. be.
