Take a look though my "Never Stop Learning" weekly posts & more. You'll be able to see me try out techniques that are new to me, keep my chops up on techniques I've learned through the years, and talk about adjustments I'm making to my workflow to become more efficient/proficient with the Adobe Creative Suite, major focus on Photoshop and Illustrator.
Last week for NSL wk. 40, I checked out the Shape Builder and some other tools for building shapes. Even though the project was finished, I gotta keep practicing and here’s what I did, Just 4 Fun:
Created using only the Shape Builder, Pencil, & Smooth tools
The background swirl was done with a single line, adjusted with the Width Tool, copy repeat rotate, dynamic Swirl effect, and a Gradient fill. The white highlights on the elephant were done in Photoshop CS6
I like to take what I’ve been going over in my Never Stop Learning #adobegrind sessions and continue the training/experimentation at work as a Production Manager of a Custom T-Shirt Shop. I’ve recently been playing around a lot with 3D, Adobe decided to make some dope switch ups to the way we 3D in Photoshop CS6, and our Direct To Garment printer has a “Black Shirt Mode” that I LOVE messin with!!! =D it’s the business, so I’m killin MAD birds with 1 stone here. Trying to be a better designer, printer, get familiar with CS6, and learn necessary steps in setting up files for successful DTG prints. Keep in mind DTG printing is still real new to the game.
