In this Pop Art Vector tutorial we are going to learn how to recreate the illustration style used for Pop Art . This type of illustration is taken from a printing process named “ Ben-Day dots “. The difference between the Ben-Day effect vs halftone effect is that for the first, the dots are always of equal size and distribution. To create this pop art vector effect, we’re going to be using custom patterns and experimenting with different color combinations to achieve a truly pop art effect for our avatar. Lastly we are going to learn how to keep a pop art style consistent in your avatar no matter the image size. Let’s begin!

What You’ll Be Creating In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to easily create a spring banner. You will draw birds, a bow and floral branches using basic shapes, and learn how to add a new fill to an existing one. 1. Drawing the Body of the Bird Step 1 Create a new document ( Control-N ) and hit the Ellipse Tool (L) . We will first create the body of the bird. Set the stroke color at any color and with no fill. Create an ellipse. Then add a smaller one on the top. Take the Rectangle Tool (M) and draw a rectangle; this will form the neck of bird. To finish off the body shape, take the Direct Selection Tool (A) and make the lower part of the rectangle wider. In the end, the shape should look like in the following image. Step 2 Using the Ellipse Tool (L) , draw two long, narrow ellipses to create the tail. Place them as shown in the image below. Step 3 Now let’s create the beak. You will need to get a sharp corner with the help of the Convert Anchor Point …
What You’ll Be Creating Drawing a side view of something seems to be the most intuitive—without “perspective” it’s simple and fun. However, because of this simplicity, side-view drawings are also boring, and they make it very hard to present all the features of a character. In this short tutorial I’ll show you how to turn them into an interesting, 3D view with a simple Photoshop trick. 1. Prepare a Drawing in Side View Step 1 Open Adobe Photoshop. Create a New File ( Control-N ) and draw the character in a side view on a New Layer ( Control-Shift-Alt-N ). Step 2 Set the Opacity of the layer to 20% . Then create a New Layer . Step 3 On this new layer, draw a simplified version of the character. Use shapes that are as simple as possible, forgetting about the details for a while. 2. Build a Bounding Box Step 1 Every 3D object, no matter how detailed, can be inscribed into a box. Analogously, a side (2D) view can be inscribed into one side of that box—a rectangle. Let’s build it! Select the Rectangle Tool ( U ) and change its settings as shown below. Step 2 Draw any rectangle. Don’t worry about creating a new layer—for Shapes they’re being created automatically. Step 3 Use the Free Transform Tool ( Control-T ) to resize the rectangle and fit the character tightly inside. Hide the character (click the “eye” icon next to the layer). Step 4 Duplicate ( Control-J ) the rectangle and hide the original. Now we’re going to need some perspective rules. You can find them all in my live perspective article —they’re not as…
What You’ll Be Creating Traditional sketches are often appreciated more than digital ones. They seem more lively, more “real”, and they have some kind of “soul”. However, if you want to present your pencil art to a wider audience using the same medium as digital art—the Internet—you stumble upon one great problem. Any tool you use to convert traditional art into digital form will have some influence (usually negative) on its quality. Adobe Photoshop comes to your aid! If you think that doing anything to a scan/photo is cheating, let me reassure you—whether you want it or not, the conversion itself changes your original picture. You can only leave it …

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial, I will show you how to create this “photo-realistic” cutaway Saturn illustration in pure SVG. We will use the open source 3D graphics software Blender to produce a physically shaded render of the planet, which we will use as a base to reproduce the image entirely in SVG vector. You will learn how to replicate 3D shading and bounce lighting with SVG gradients in Inkscape, draw the planet’s transparent rings with colors sampled from NASA images, create an aurora effect over the planet’s north pole, and much much more. 1.
What You’ll Be Creating We all used to draw as kids. It was easy back then, no matter if you used color pencils, a stick, or your finger on a steamy window. But even then you might have noticed that some children drew better than you. Not that you knew what “better” meant—all you knew was the sweetness of praise. Whenever you heard someone else being praised, and your own work ignored, you felt worse and worse. Eventually, you gave up on drawing. Why would you continue if nobody cared? Now, whatever the reason, you want to come back, but it seems so scary. Those children who never gave up are working as professionals now, and their art looks almost magical. How could you possibly bridge that gap? Will you ever catch up on
