They're not hard to make. You can either make an elongated triangle and use the rotate tool + copy/duplicate, or you can download a pre-made vector shape from a free vector website. I have a pre-made one that I use over and over again.
you're right, compared to photoshop, there aren't many illustrator tutorials. didn't think of that until you mentioned it. There's tools in illustrator I need to start using.lol. Thanks for making the tut.!
No prob! This tutorial might be tricky if you're -just- starting Illustrator. I almost only use Illustrator now for things like making posters and web-graphics. I like the idea of no resolution. Also, the pen tool isn't the same as Photoshop and it's a lot more intuitive. The text tool is a dream in Illustrator. I guarantee you'll never add text with Photoshop again!
My next tutorial will be on how to make patterns. However making complicated patterns I'd say is an advanced tutorial.
Illustrator has a patterns swatch pallet. You use patterns to fill shapes or even strokes. It's a heck of a lot easier to create a seamless pattern in Illustrator. It's immensely useful. You can import them into Photoshop.
