As mentioned in a previous post, Laura Coyle’s tutorials are very good. She is truly a great teacher. Both her classes and tutorials are free at Illustratoring.com. The following is the introduction from the class:
Learn about Calligraphic Illustrator brushes, the Paintbrush Tool, and the Blob Brush Tool. You’ll learn the settings for getting the most out of these tools with a pressure sensitive Wacom tablet. Create a set of Illustrator brushes to use for linework and coloring, then follow along as Laura guides you through a complete, fun, floral art project, complete with tracing art and a custom color palette. Get into freehand drawing in Illustrator with this complete project!
