Using your basic Pen tool knowledge, you’ll create a series of shapes similar to those found in final artwork in the practice file. You’ll practice creating a path with straight segments, as well as a path that has a series of straight and curved segments.

When creating straight lines with the Pen tool, by clicking and releasing with the Pen tool selected to make corner points, press the Shift key to constrain the position of the anchor to 45 degrees.
