The Adobe Illustrator Pen Tool is a very different animal. It´s really not hard, but it´s kind of like walking vs. swimming. Imagine being a fish trying to walk down Park Avenue. For the fish, that would be a hard thing to do. Just like the non swimming human jumping into the middle of the ocean.
We all started in kindergarten drawing with pencils, crayons, paint brushes, and even if we were in the woods, or in a vacant lot, we might draw with sticks or rocks into the dirt. Even if we didn´t draw well, we could at least create a caveman like drawling depicting our idea.
Using the Adobe Illustrator Pen Tool is like being the fish trying to walk down Park Avenue. It is not at all intuitive to the training each and everyone of us received all of our lives. But, if you are human and learning how to swim, a few lessons can help you swim almost like a fish.
