Getting To Grips With The Bézier Curve

Mastering the pen tool can be quite challenging, even for experienced designers. So if your skills need some brushing up or if you finally want to get to grips with the bézier curve, The Bézier Game, created by Mark McKay for the education startup Method of Action, is a playful way to improve your skills.

The concept of the game is simple. You get an object and you have to trace its outline by bending curves around it — with as few nodes as possible. But be warned, what sounds easy in theory is quite tricky in practice indeed. Just remember: practice does makes perfect, so don’t give up too easily!
