Note how the original line that we drew was quite rugged, but Illustrator polished the line and the final product looks quite professional. "Eraser Tool" isn't only used for getting rid of mistakes. It can also be used to create more complicated shapes.Then, you can select the two parts separately by clicking them.
- 32You can use all of these tools to create dynamic shapes quickly, rather than just in the traditional way. The cut-out shape will have the closed path, as the stroke went around the edge of the shape. "Knife" is similar to "Eraser Tool", but you have more freedom and close the paths automatically.Then, click and drag the cut-out shape.
