    Very nice work. I look forward to seeing the rest of the sigils if you create them.

  2. Mike Berg says:

    Instead of redrawing the outline for a thicker outer stroke, try this:

    (1) Cmd+A to select all.
    (2) Cmd+C to copy.
    (3) Cmd+B to paste in back.
    (4) In the Pathfinder window, click “Union”.
    (5) Adjust the stroke width & miter limit as described.

    Much faster and less error-prone!

  28. sarah says:

    Great tutorial/inspiration!

    I have a n0ob question for anyone who can answer though – when working with the pen tool my lines never meet up where they visually should.

    *Example* In the snout area under the triangular nose (where the vertical line is) the line always bounces either left or right of the triangle’s vertex. I’d like for the lines to meet but can’t manage this! It’s driving me insane!
