I love Adobe Illustrator for its power to produce awesome artwork with just basic tools and techniques. In today’s tutorial we’re going to use nothing but Illustrator’s Blend tool to create a wireframe that’s so detailed you would think it was made in a complex 3D programs. By just drawing a few basic paths with your mouse, Illustrator can generate a series of intricate lines that resembles an animal skull. It takes a little trial and error to find the perfect layout, but once you do the results are epic! I’ll be creating this wireframe longhorn buffalo skull as part of this tutorial, but the technique works for any kind of animal head. Stags, rams and bulls are all great subjects to play with. Their horns can be tricky, but they produce the most striking results. Find a reference photo of an animal skull and place it into an Illustrator document. I’m using this Long Horn Buffalo Skull image from Shutterstock . Reduce the Transparency of the image to around 50%, then press CMD+2 to lock it into place to avoid accidentally selecting it. Double click the Pencil tool from the toolbar to edit its options. Move the Fidelity slider towards the Accurate end of the scale and deselect the Keep Selected option. Clear out the default fill colour, leaving just…

I have a brand new video tutorial for you today based on one of my popular posts from 2011. This time we’re going to play around with Illustrator to create some retro style geometric lines that interweave and loop around each other to form an intriguing composition, which kinda reminds me of a crazy scalextric track! We’ll use the power of Illustrator Art Brushes to create the effect, then we’ll switch over to Photoshop to add some finishing touches to texture and distress the design to give it that awesome aged look.

I’ve posted articles about topographic maps before on my blog, namely my contour map effect Illustrator tutorial and my free pack of topographic map patterns . My first tutorial used Illustrator’s Blend tool to draw a series of concentric lines. It worked pretty well, but I went on to develop a technique that would help create more detailed and repeatable patterns, which I used to create that freebie pack. I never explained those new techniques in a tutorial, so that’s the topic for today! Follow this how-to guide to learn how to create a detailed topographic map effect, then convert the design into a seamless pattern. The effect we’ll be creating in this tutorial is a realistic topographic map. My original tutorial involved manually drawing the outlines, but this new technique generates much more complex designs with ease. I’ll also show how you can customise the effect to create a range of map styles, and convert the design into a seamless repeating pattern for use as backgrounds in your outdoors themed designs. This tutorial…
