A longer pen tool tutorial would be nice

Hi, just a suggestion. For a new user of the pen tool such as myself, I found it really hard to grasp what was going on in this video. I searched around and found a good pen tool tutorial that slowly goes over how to use it, and I think that this course could do with the same.


I think a good 20 minutes would really help people new to this tool (which is, as I understand it, VERY important to using Illustrator).

Even better, try out this cool little game Bezier Game, it really helps me master the pen tool, plus, it's lots of fun playing.

Wow. This is pretty cool! Thank you for sharing this, William!
