I am trying to learn how to draw faces in Illustrator. I am wondering if fast and good artists typically use freehand drawing with a tablet and a brush and then refine it somehow either with the tablet or with the pen tool, or if you start with the pen tool and just use that instead of a brush.
Wondering generally what the tools are that are used most frequently by practicing vector artists.
I have a Wacom tablet somewhere. Wondering if it would be highly beneficial to dig that up, or if it would be perfectly fine to get good just using the trackpad and the pen tool (or perhaps even a brush).
Specifically I want to learn how to draw in black and white (perhaps a few colors down the road), but like this kind of thing.
