comment How to align all selected points to a grid?
If it's a minor value it's likely to be consistent (or, very very similar) for every point - so can't you then move all points at once to get them exactly on the grid?

comment How to align all selected points to a grid?
No idea what the downvotes were for - this is a really clear question. On some StackExchange sites there's a really ugly undignified trend where some people downvote questions when they don't know the answer... (i.e. any interesting, challenging questions...) I really hope that's not what happened here because I thought we were better than that.

comment Could this photo-realistic Morgan Freeman painting really be done like this on an iPad?
If he did the "digital tracing" method I described using layers, then it wouldn't be surprising if the photo and image were near-identical - any differences would simply be where he got bored of tracing details. Mau Horng posted a link to an overlay comparison he made showing several very small differences which was deleted for some reason: tiny differences would make sense if the guy did 200 hours of tracing then finally got bored.

comment Illustrator assumes I want to type on a path— can that be changed?
Just did some experimenting, weird observation (in CS6 on Mac): if you click while holding down ctrl (not cmd) and alt while over/near a path, it doesn't put the text on the path. It does, however, create the text as a text box with a seemingly random size and position... other versions might give other results...

I'd be surprised if there is, unfortunately. One possible workaround if you're working on something with many paths adding many text points would be to have the paths on one layer, text on another, and lock the paths layer while you work on text.

comment How can I make a nav bar thats not boring!
A thought: dull isn't always a bad thing for something functional like a nav bar. You don't want a nav bar that distracts from your main content and trips up users because it's not what they are familiar with. I'd suggest saving the spice for those things you want to be eye-catching, and keep everything else simple, familiar and easy to use: this will also make the genuinely eye-catching stuff stand out more strongly. If everything stands out, nothing does.

comment Cut a square in half to produce line corners
So, an easy way to go from your first image to your second image would be to use the direct selection tool (white arrow, a), select the points at the corner of each triangle (holding shift), then copy and paste just those points.

comment What are some techniques to drawing abstract art
Surrealist artists were very big on devising fixed formalised techniques for coming up with ideas and starting points accidentally, randomly and/or subconsciously. Search on 'surrealist techniques' and you'll find some relevant stuff.
