InkScribe is a cool Plugin for Adobe Illustrator made by Astute Graphics. I checked out their playlists on Youtube studied up all week and then tried it out.
With InkScribe, the first thing that freaked me out was that after the first click, this string follows your cursor. I wanted it GONE, it freaked me out and I decided to start by studying SubScribe instead =D The cool thing is that this Plugin works a lot like Illustrator. All I had to do was open my preferences and tell InkScribe not to show that “Rubberband” #Awesome I actually got use to it and now I work with it on.
For Never Stop Learning week 77 I vectorized a different sketch by Christian Mendoza.

So InkScribe is like the Pentool in Illustrator but with a lot more functionality to it. The best thing you can do is set it up like you normal Pentool and add features as you go. You’ll get the hang of it after browsing through the preferences.
I laid everything out with the same size stroke. After I had it all in place, I varied the widths of the strokes to get a way more expressive look. I’m not a trained Illustrator but I really liked how this came out with some simple variations of strokes.
Astute Graphics has a whole suite of plugins that work in Illustrator to enhance your workflow. I’m digging them! Try out SubScribe for free then buy up the rest =D
They also have some BIG NEWS coming in a week or two. CLICK HERE to stay up to date.
