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.
In a comment, someone said it would be nice to see a tutorial on a piece I created for NSL week 66 called “Gray”. On this post I’ll show you screen shots of my work and hopefully you’ll be able to try it out based off that.
Today I’m having fun messing around with Adobe Illustrator CS6. I’m on a mission to get good at creating decorative design elements. During Never Stop Learning 73 I got my first taste and here’s a look at my second attempt:
“Lion Flourish” Practicing making flourishes using custom Art Brushes with the new Variable Width Technology available in Adobe Illustrator CS6
Saw a really cool post, shared it on FB, my friend saw it and TOLD me to make her one =D sounded like fun so here’s a bit of Designer See, Designer Do:
I had fun piling on the shadows and highlights along with some lighting and blur effects to try and give some space. I also wanted to keep in-mind it’s a Desktop Wallpaper. I wanted to leave room for her desktop icons.
A friend had some pix she wasn’t 100% happy with so I thought this would be a good chance to practice some Adobe LightRoom 4.
I didn’t have the program for a while because my free trial ran out =D but now that Adobe added it to the Creative Cloud I’M BACK =D
Out of all the shots, I think I liked this one the best and it’s the one I did the least too =D The photographer and Thalia got a good one here.
