Lettering in Adobe Illustrator - Use the width tool in Adobe Illustrator.

I find this gives me more control and the letters follow a proportional range rather than appear arbitrary in thickness.
ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR TUTORIAL: PEN TOOL PRACTICE GUIDE 5/7/2017 0 Comments There's no doubt, the pen tool is by far the most valuable tool within Adobe Illustrator. It is also the hardest tool to master. When I started learning Illustrator in school, my teacher made us spend an entire class period tracing a bunch of lines in order to get comfortable with the tool. I have created a similar practice guide so you can start getting comfortable and learn how to become a master with the pen tool.
