I found this tutorial so helpful! I made a picture inspired by my brothers' obsession with the guitar, and this text style was perfect :) thanks!

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.

Thats cool! 1: never knew there was a 3D option in Illustrator 2: I agree, there isn't much Illustrator resource & tutorials here... yet :)

Great help, thanks!

Oh yes, Illustrator can do quite a bit in 3D! Play with the 3D options, it's loads of fun. I plan on adding more vector tutorials in the future.

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.

Vectors are amazing.lol. That's why I use it more so I can incorporate more stuff in Flash. I only use Photoshop for coloring nowadays.

Yeah, the pen tool is definitely different, being I like Illustrator's better.lol. A LOT better.

Sweet. :c) Patterns. As in template patterns or patterns to use within a whole document tantamount to Photoshop's?

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.
