Access All Areas members have a useful collection of picture frame mockups to download this week, courtesy of Frisk Web Studio. The aptly named Framezilla is a huge collection of 30 mockup templates, featuring a variety of minimalist frame styles, each conveniently layered to allow you to easily present your own artwork. Each frame mockup also includes a background, which places the frame upon a wall or within a surrounding environment to produce an inviting scene.
Of all the different design styles, the vintage look is the most difficult to pull off, unless you have the right materials. Authenticity is the key when it comes to creating realistic vintage artwork, otherwise you end up with a fake-looking digital knock-off. Nothing replicates the charm and character of the vintage style quite like actual items from the era which have slowly aged and weathered over years upon years to produce the most authentic tools possible. However, you might not have a stack of old papers from the 19th century laying around, which is where The Essential, Eclectic Vintage Toolkit comes in. This collection of premium resources sets you up with a comprehensive range of gorgeous fonts, textures, vector graphics, and vintage ephemera, all sourced from rare items that would be very hard to come by otherwise.

Here you will find the best Affinity brushes, including both free downloads and high-quality brush pack products.
For today’s video tutorial I have a really quick and easy Photoshop process to add realistic glass reflections to an image, to make it appear as if a portrait photograph has been taken through a window. By using Photoshop to create this photo style, you can capture the effect of shooting through glass without even having to go outside!
