How do you draw shape without a stroke?

Hi all,
I am trying to create a character by manipulating shapes but I do not want a stroke around the different shapes. I seem to have to create a shape (ie rectangle), then fill it with the desired color, and then delete the stroke from it. Is there a way to set things up so I can create a shape without a stroke and with the fill color I want prior to using the rectangle/square tool?


Either use the same colour for line and fill, then flatten the drawing…

Or use the Stroke Tool…

Be aware, those videos are without sound, it’s all fairly simple and self-explanatory.

Thank you for link… Great stuff on your site
