In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial we’re going to create a vibrant piece of vector artwork featuring three dimensional type from an isometric viewpoint. This isometric type effect is commonly combined with bright colours to produce a fun design style. Adobe Illustrator is the perfect tool to create such an effect; the 3D Extrude & Bevel tool easily generates an accurate isometric layout, then the artwork can then be broken down into individual vector shapes for easy customisation with colourful fills and detailed patterns.
Last week I showed you how to create a slimy text effect in Adobe Illustrator, so I thought I’d cover a similar topic this week but in Photoshop instead. The vector Illustrator artwork is quite flat, whereas you can achieve much more realism with gradients and filters in Photoshop. The effect we’ll be producing in this tutorial is a glossy text effect made out of some kind of gooey yellow substance!
Just like stickers, t-shirts and pin badges, embroidered patches are a trendy fashion accessory designers love to produce with their custom designs. They come in all shapes and sizes, some with multiple colours; others with simple mono designs. Common uses include novelty promotional items, saleable merchandise, or souvenirs for events. What I personally love about these creative examples in this showcase is seeing how the digital design is replicated in thread, which transforms the artwork into a tangible little item with wonderful patterns and textures.
Access All Areas members have a devilish set of Photoshop Brushes and bonus Grit Textures to download this week, courtesy of Mixergraph. These 20 rough brushes have been handcrafted from real ink to simulate analogue print effects. Use them to add distressed outlines and borders to your artwork, and combine them with the selection of bonus gritty textures from the Mixergraph Thrasher Collection to add even dirtier effects to your designs.
