I am trying to get more comfortable with vector editing software these days (Adobe Illustrator in particular) and I have sort of a workflow question.
Let's say I'm trying to achieve a kinda extended letter "o" shape.
I would start with the outer vector path.
I have seen some people combining a shape out of several other ones.
But when I have to place every part in it's exact place, I can't put them in exact spots where they need to be. As a result I end up with tiny overlappings and vector imperfections. This is what I roughly get:
It would be nice to know what would be your approach to such a task.
What's the fastest way?
