Puppet Warp in Adobe Illustrator CC 2018

It couldn’t be easier to make smooth adjustments to parts of your vector drawings in Adobe lllustrator CC. Simply place pins with the Puppet Warp tool, and then manipulate specific areas of your artwork while keeping other areas unchanged.

Make digital puppets
Easily pose a character. When repositioning the limbs of a character, add extra pins where the limb meets the body at a joint. You can use the Expand mesh option in the Properties panel (or in the Control panel) to increase the affected area. This is helpful when there are gaps in your artwork.

Create expressive typography
Sculpt, elongate, and distort text shapes. The Puppet Warp tool automatically outlines the text so you can edit the shapes organically rather than using anchor points.
Tip: For best results, manipulate each letter individually.
