In today’s Adobe Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show you how you can easily create cool looking vintage logo designs by combining antique illustrations with some visually interesting text styles and layouts. This kind of artwork is really popular as T-shirt graphics, so I’ll show you how to set up your document at the appropriate size for a T-shirt design. To finish off the artwork, we’ll apply some vintage print effects and make use of my Washed and Worn textures to make the digital design look like a realistic old T-shirt print.
In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’m going to show you a really useful technique for creating isometric art, in particular an isometric city scene with loads of skyscrapers and bright neon lights. Usually, isometric illustrations would be drawn with the help of a grid, but this method makes it easy to build simple 3D objects in a range of shapes and sizes. Decorating the objects to turn then into skyscrapers is easy too. I’ll show you how you can add colourful shapes to represent the windows, without having to worry about getting the angles right.
Follow along with today’s Photoshop video tutorial to create a bold and vibrant illustration of a snake. We’ll start with a loose, initial sketch, then I’ll show you some helpful brush settings for accurately outlining your illustration. The artwork is brought to life when colour is added, then it really starts to take shape when you apply the stipple shading. A bit of polish with some Photoshop layer styles adds some finishing touches, then an old paper texture helps achieve that old-school tattoo flash look.
In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’m going to show you some useful techniques for creating colourful vector art with a 3D style. We’ll be basing the design on the rad patterns of geometric shapes and squiggly lines from the 80s, known as Memphis patterns, but adding a modern twist with gradient overlays to give the artwork a nice vibrant appearance.
In today’s video tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a series of detailed, organic patterns, which have become generally known as ‘Turing Patterns’. Based on the research into reaction-diffusion patterns in nature by mathematician Alan Turing, these graphics are made up of intricate stripes, spots, and spirals. I’ll show you how a clever 3-step process in Photoshop can be used to create the effect, then I’ll explain how you can convert the patterns into seamlessly repeating patterns for use in Photoshop and Illustrator.
In today’s Adobe Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show you a handy technique for creating a gold foil effect that looks just like the hot foil stamping printing finish that adds luxurious embellishments to printed products. We’ll first create a shiny gold texture, then apply it to some text with the help of a mask. To simulate the appearance of real foil stamping, we’ll finish it off with subtle effects like a paper texture and minor edge distortions.
