Adobe Illustrator contains a number of drawing tools that allow you to draw freehand, but the Pen tool gives you full control over the shapes you draw. Learn how you can control the length and curvature of each path you draw through clicking, click-dragging, and holding down certain keys on the keyboard to change smooth to corner points or vise versa.
