  1. Hello,

    your tutorial is very useful.
    However I couldn't do as Step 23 T_T
    When I do Stoke Path... and chose Brush, it doesn't give me as in Step 24. I tried to draw it manually but I couldn't do it. I'm just a beginner.

    Thank you.

  2. If you have problems with step 23 after you pressed P in the upper corner are 3 different icons next to the pen: a square with little squares on every corner a square with the pen in the middle and a plane square.

    It automatically was on the first one, but for this step you need the second, the square with the pen in the middle.

    hope i could help out.

  3. I can't get past step 23. For some reason, the option of "stroke path" is not available to me (it's grayed out). Is there something I'm doing wrong?

  4. This was an easy tutorial to follow. Thank you so much! I would like permission to share my final graphic inside a bonus package of graphic elements.

    Please get in touch with me so we can discuss... thank you!
