This specific tutorial is just a single movie from chapter four of the Illustrator CS5 One-on-One: Fundamentals course presented by author Deke McClelland.

  1. This video is taken from a full video series on The instructor Deke McClelland is the best Illustrator/Photoshop/InDesign teacher there is. I have spent dozens of hours learning from his courses, and they are all top-notch. To the commenters below who want him to get straight to the point in 30 seconds, understand that the nature of his course is one that moves a bit more slowly so the viewer can work alongside him and come away with a mastery of the software. If he were to show each effect in 30 seconds' time, it would be impossible to follow along and retain everything.

  2. To all those who I guess don't know, and keep commenting about his non-stop talking, this is a tutorial. He's a professional instructor, it'd be like saying to your college professor that they are talking too much.

  3. With a closed shape hold Alt+Click at the point in the center where you want to flip, select. From the dialog box click "Copy" and chose "Vertical" axis. Lord Jesus Christ.
