How to Create Vector Dandelion with VectorScribe in Adobe Illustrator

The Dynamic Shapes Tool in the VectorScribe plug-in ideally works for quick creation of precise technical objects. However, you can also use this tool for drawing less regular organic shapes. Let’s see how it’s done on this example of a dandelion illustration, in which I have used more than 150 dynamic shapes, which made the workflow many times faster. In addition, the dandelion is still alive, that means that you can reconfigure most of its shapes.
