The Bezier Game
Learning to use the pen/bezier tool is also one of the things that graphic designers need to do. The Bezier tool helps designers in shaping the curve of an object. It takes precision and perseverance in forming proportional curves in forming objects in the design. To practice it, you can play the bezier game which can be accessed at bezier.method.ac. Compared to previous games, this bezier game requires more complex commands.
