Vectortwist Qucik Tips:

  • Turn on the Grid under View > Show Grid.
  • Use Smart Guides ( View > Smart Guides ). This helps with alignment and symmetry.
  • Make good use of the Duplicate Shortcut, one of my fav tools: CMD/CTRL + D
  • Solid Shapes and Lines combined with the Pathfinder Tools can create new shapes
