What You’ll Be Creating I remember a year ago I was having so much trouble vectoring my letterforms. I had a decent understanding of the Pen Tool, but had no idea that there are minor techniques that do wonders for your type to create those smooth curves you’re looking for.
What You’ll Be Creating This tutorial will show you how to use smart objects, layer styles, and some filters to create a simple sketch text effect. I’ll also give you a cool tip for changing the coloring of the final result pretty easily using a Photo Filter adjustment layer. Let’s get started! Tutorial Assets The following assets were used during the production of this tutorial: Panton Black Caps
I originally planned to write this tutorial on how to create a retro 3D effect that mimicked the offset red/blue images that were seen in old 3D movies, comics and posters. But then I thought, rather than just recreate the effect, why not try and produce an anaglyph 3D image that actually works?! So I boggled my mind with the science behind stereoscopy and figured out how to create some really cool 3D images that pop out from your screen. Grab yourself some old school 3D specs and follow this guide to learn how to produce your own anaglyph 3D images in Photoshop. In order to follow along with this tutorial and see these images in full effect you will need to acquire some 3D glasses with red & cyan lenses. You can find the original white card style glasses online for a couple of $/£/€, which work perfectly well. Anaglyph 3D pictures can be created in two ways; The first technique combines two separate images from a camera and results in some really cool photographs. The second technique produces the effect with just one image, which makes it particularly useful for illustrations, or any photograph that wasn’t captured in stereo. Creating Anaglyphs with 2 images The 2 image technique really helps you understand the science behind stereoscopic images. Anaglyphs are created by combining two images from different angles, much like the way our eyes work. Try looking at an object on your desk and close one eye, then the other. Notice how the object appears to move? This technique uses the same principle. Two photos are taken, either with two cameras strapped together at a set distance apart, or …

What You’ll Be Creating Whether you work in a store, a basement, an office building, or from your own home, there are a few things you can do to upgrade the look of your space. Decals are a fun and affordable way to do so, and you can customize them in any die-cut shape, size, and quantity.

Bhartiya City artwork. Today I’m interviewing London-based illustrator Rod Hunt. Read on to get a dose of his intricate artwork, and learn about his experiences as an artist and as chairman of PR for ICON—The Illustration Conference. Plus, you can answer the question on everyone’s mind, “Where’s Stig?” through his work for the BBC’s Top Gear. Let’s get to the point! Hey Rod, thanks so much for the interview! Let’s start at the beginning: What got you into art? Comics were a big influence me, especially British comic “2000 AD”, and the thing that got me drawing as a kid. The man himself, Rod Hunt. Who or what are your main sources of inspiration? Apart from comics, my inspirations would go back to games from my youth on the ZX Spectrum like “Knight Lore”, “Batman”, “Alien 8″, and “Head Over Heels” by Ultimate Play the Game; the isometric ones were particular favorites. I also grew up with science fiction films like “Star Wars”, “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “Forbidden Planet”, and old TV shows like “Flash Gordon” and “Star Trek”. Their design aesthetic definitely stayed with me and their visions of the future are still what I think the future should look like. And of course the robots were always cool! I also owned a few old tin robot toys as a kid, which were amongst my favorite
