2. Create a new Illustrator document and draw a rough mountain outline using the Pen tool. Make single clicks to generate straight lines between each point and follow a curved path for the bottom edge to help with its 3D appearance later.

3. Deselect the outline shape then add intersecting lines running from upper to lower points. Use Smart Guides (CMD+U) to make it easy to snap to these existing points.
