What You’ll Be Creating Not so long ago we were learning about small rodents like mice, rats, hamsters and others . Even though when we say “rodent”, generally we’ve got something small in mind, some representatives of the family are really, really big! Today we’ll get to know the capybara, beaver, porcupine, nutria, groundhog, and muskrat—they’re all rodents, so we can use the knowledge we already have to enhance our animal base by six new, interesting species! Disclaimer Since this tutorial is a continuation of the previous one of the series, you should go there for information about the general features of rodents. Today we’ll only talk about the features of particular species. For drawing the heads of big rodents we’re going to use the template below—a big ball for the “braincase”, a smaller one for the upper jaw, and a flattened one for the lower jaw. This structure can be easily modified in perspective as described in this tutorial . 1. Capybara The capybara is the largest rodent, quite similar to its relative, the guinea pig. It’s a social animal living in groups, so it makes a nice pet—as long as you can handle it! Capybaras, though round and …

Advertise here with BSA In the realm of digital illustration there’s a lot to be learned from web design. Many layouts rely on illustrated vector graphics to enhance branding, content, and functionality. In fact modern illustration design and web design seem to be closely interlinked through a very systematic methodology. I’ve put together a series of websites featuring illustrated graphics for design inspiration. These examples should prove useful whether you’re a graphic designer, web designer, or some combination of both. Plus there’s always room for growth and you can learn an awful lot by studying the work of others.

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial you’ll learn to make an isometric pixel art car. Have your character ready; it’s going for a ride. We’ll be creating a relatively generic sedan. It won’t be too flashy, which is ideal for recycling many times over on the same illustration (useful if you’re making a city scene!). But even though it’ll be generic, it wouldn’t hurt to see some reference images; maybe there are simple design elements from actual car models that you can incorporate into your car graphic. Make sure you have already gone through the isometric pixel art character tutorial ;
One of the most important aspects of a successful video game is the environment. The background is what sets the stage for the player, and knowing how to create great-looking backgrounds will improve your value as a designer.
We all use Adobe Illustrator in different ways, to different ends. But we can all benefit from making our workflow more efficient. Here are seven ways you can automate or eliminate monotonous, repetitive tasks, so you can focus on being more creative and productive. 1. Use Workspaces for Easy Access to the Panels You Use Most The particular arrangement and configuration of the panels in Illustrator is called a Workspace . There are several built-in Workspaces, each suited to a specific kind of work. These are simply the configurations Adobe thinks you’ll use for any given task, but you don’t have to agree. You can arrange the panels any way you like, then save the arrangement as your own personal workspace. Go to the Window menu to Workspace > New Workspace , give it a name, and click OK . You can save your preferred panel arrangement as a custom workspace. TIP : If you move panels around and things start to get messy, simply click “ Reset ____ ”, and everything will go back to its neat and tidy original configuration. 2. Use Keyboard Shortcuts to Work Quickly and Reduce Strain You should familiarize yourself with the keyboard shortcuts for all the tools you use regularly (if not all the tools). Choosing tools with the mouse slows you down and, frankly, is a rookie move. But did you know you can change the shortcuts and even create your own? Go to the Edit menu to Keyboard Shortcuts . Find the tool whose shortcut you want to change. When you click on it in the list, you’ll be able to type a new shortcut in the text field. …
