In today’s Adobe Photoshop video tutorial I’m going to show you a useful technique for applying a design to a textured background, such as wood. This is great for creating rustic wooden signs, or any other effect where your design looks like it has been painted on a surface and distressed from years of weathering.
I stumbled across some packaging designs for old cap gun toys recently, which gave me the inspiration to reproduce the style myself. Follow along with today’s tutorial to create a vintage toy packaging design using both Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. We’ll begin in Illustrator to draw the main product illustration, lay out the type, and compose the design. Then I’ll show you how to give the artwork a vintage appearance in Photoshop with the help of some textures, filters and brushes which will help to mimic the appearance of aged prints.
In today’s Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show you how to create the popular floral typography effect, where type is combined with images of flowers to create pretty artwork. We’ll begin by producing a composition of floral illustrations, then add the type and erase specific portions of the artwork to make it seem like the flowers surround the text, with some petals and stems appearing on top and others underneath. To enhance the effect, I’ll then show you a clever shading technique that helps to add depth with slightly more realistic drop shadows.
In today’s Photoshop tutorial we’re going to have some fun creating a surreal art style known as Grime Art, which is a weird trend where portrait photos are doodled upon with drooping, cartoonish drips of slimy flesh in vibrant colours to produce weird and wonderful zombie-like images with a gross, but somehow cool effect. I’ll show you a handy technique within Photoshop that allows you to easily illustrate and colour your artwork with the help of a pen tablet.
In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’m going to take you through the process of creating a bold eSports style logo with a mascot graphic, from the initial sketch right through to the final vector logo art. eSports logos are a continuation of the style of American football, baseball and hockey team branding that incorporate mascot illustration with strong type and vibrant colours. The artwork I’ll be creating in this guide is for a fictional team named Rhinos, featuring a stylised illustration of a mean looking rhino character. I’ll show you how to produce the initial sketch in Photoshop, then we’ll transfer the concept over to Illustrator to develop the logo into vector graphics.
In this Adobe Photoshop tutorial I’ll show you some clever techniques for creating military style camo patterns, using nothing but Photoshop filters. The result is completely randomised, which is perfect for producing abstract shapes and disruptive patterns. I’ll also present a range of optional steps you can take to customise the appearance of your camouflage design, then prepare to have your mind blown when you see how Photoshop can completely automate the creation of your pattern across a vast area with no repetition whatsoever.
