Today my new Olaf Disney T-Shirt is now for sale over at Redbubble. It comes in many different colours and styles also and will be perfect for this summer!!
Another day, another tutorial!
This time it's another one from Chris Spooner's Blog over at Spoon Graphics. Chris decided to share with us his technique to create an event poster for his Stag Do.
As I am attending a friend of mine's stag do this year, Chef Daniel Catford, I decided I would follow Chris' great step by step tutorial.
The tutorial uses both Photoshop and Illustrator to create, I did veer slightly off tangent at times but managed to keep in line with what was needed for certain effects!
I'm a little disappointed that I didn't choose a slightly better image to clip for the Quad Biker as it has pixelated slightly but overall I'm happy with the outcome and as it's just for fun I won't get hung up on it too much.
_Today I followed a nice tutorial from Sterling-based Designer Steven Bonner about adding depth to your work using Illustrator and Photoshop.
This technique involves using Vector shapes and graphics to create the outlines you want and then taking that into Photoshop to add the depth to your piece.
Steven realises that the depth effects can, quite rightly, be done in Illustrator but there tends to be some noticeable 'lag' in the time it takes to produce, so doing it in Photoshop is a much more, pain free, way of producing it.
The tutorial itself is hosted on the Computer Arts site which you can follow from there.
Every once and a while I will see something that really stands out and get's the inspiration flowing.
Today I discovered this piece by Hylton Warburton for Zebra and Giraffe, a South African band who wanted a piece to be printed onto a T-Shirt as part of their latest album release.
If you follow the link to Hylton's Behance page you will see a glimpse into the creation of this great piece and it's given me a sense of inspiration to try and create something similar in the future.
Here is the link to Hylton's Behance Post. ZEBRA & GIRAFFE - T SHIRT DESIGN.
This is something I have been interested in for some time, I have seen various way of doing this, there is a quite long winded Photoshop way of doing it and then there's this, easier Illustrator way of creating this effect.
