If you’ve ever needed to remove unwanted sections of paths quickly and easily then the Gesture Trimming function in DynamicSketch should be part of your toolkit! This tool allows you to create a variable stroke path which gives you the ability to edit not only the shape of the path, but also its thickness to achieve the desired artistic effect.
To change the width of the variable stroke path, I’m going to use the Width Selector Tool (WidthScribe plug-in), where you can quickly change the width of the width markers.
As you can see, using the DynamicSketch Tool and the Width Selector Tool, you can quickly get almost any shape of the vector outline. You can also erase part of the path in one movement across it.To do this hold down the Shift key and cross the target path once.
It’s important to note that the Gesture Trimming function works not only with variable stroke paths, but also with paths that are created using the Paint Brush Tool (B). To create a shadow on the hand I used hatching that is created from two uniform paths with the help of the Blend Tool (W). To increase the density of the shadow in some places I used the Width Brush Tool (WidthScribe plug-in). To reduce the density of the shadows you can create reflections and highlights on the hatching.

Create vector outline in Illustrator has always been laborious work which requires certain skills and accuracy.
In this vector tutorial I will use the goblin sketch which was kindly given by Victoria Vasilyeva.
Tick on the Merge Only with Selection in the dialog box of the Blob Brush Tool options if you use this tool. So, take the stylus and start creating the vector outline based on the sketch; reduce the opacity of the sketch for more convenient work. I will give you some more tips which will help you to control the thickness and fidelity of the vector outline in the process of digital painting. You can also use the Variable Width Profile in the Stroke panel in Adobe Illustrator CS5 and CS6. However, in my opinion, it would be better to create a color vector outline right away because the black outline must be a little thinner than the color one.
Follow us if you want to be the first to know about the latest Adobe Illustrator tutorials and articles.
In addition to showing how this can be done we’ll also look at how to create a vector outline using a few tools by Astute Graphics. To edit the shape of the path, you can use the InkScribe plug-in which can change the position of the points, edit their handles and add new points with real speed. In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial I will tell you how to get a clean vector outline quickly using a simple method.


You can use the Direct Selection Tool (A) and the Lasso Tool (Q) for it, whatever you like more. By using zigzag gestures across the path, as indicated in the example, you can simply erase what you don’t want. To create an outline in this case, use the Blob Brush Tool (Shift + B) or the Paintbrush Tool (B).
If you use the Paintbrush Tool for digital painting then you need to configure the brush options. To open the Paintbrush Tool Options dialog box press the Enter and type the desired value of fidelity. But when i attempt to select my fill areas it constantly fills outside of the selcted paths all weird.. You need to ensure that the Gesture Trimming mode is enabled via the tool’s panel and cross the target path between 3 and 5 times.
It is difficult for me to get the proper thickness of the line right away, that’s why all the defects, indicated on the figure, are absolutely normal result of my work process. It’s better to increase the value for the longer outlines and decrease it for the shorter outlines.
