Learn how bezier curves work in your favorite computer drawing program with this excellent art/technology tutorial. Knowing how this technology works in Adobe Illustrator, and other vector programs, may actually make it easier for you to create the exact curve you want. I found it did just that for me. I was able to nail the spot for the bezier curve handles a little quicker now that I see the geometry clearer in my mind. Perhaps it’s the geek in this artist, but every little advantage helps.
