In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’ll show you how to create a colorful landscape scene, similar to the style of those trendy illustrated travel posters I recently featured in a showcase. We’ll make the entire illustration out of simple vector shapes, then bring it to life with vibrant gradients to give the scene a tranquil sunset vibe. My example features an old wild west desert with mountains that extend to the horizon, but these same techniques could be used to create a landscape scene for any fictional or non-fictional place. A large setting sun provides a red, orange and yellow colour scheme in my artwork, which is applied to all the element to help determine the depth of the scene. The colour of the mountains darken as they approach the silhouettes in the foreground, while the sky spans from warm to cool as the it turns from day to night. Begin by creating a new document in Adobe Illustrator. I’m creating a long, thin portrait artboard of 1000x1500px. Change the Color Mode to RGB to give us a full spectrum of vibrant colours to play with, then change the Raster Effects to High (300ppi). Select the Rectangle tool and draw a shape that covers the artboard. Use Smart Guides (CMD+U) to easily snap to the artboard edges. Remove the stroke, then add a linear gradient fill from under the Gradient panel. Add…

What You’ll Be Creating “There’s no place like home…” Dorothy whispered those words, and with three clicks of her sparkly ruby slippers, she was back in Kansas again. It’s an iconic movie moment, one we couldn’t neglect in our series of Wizard of Oz -themed tutorials. So in this tutorial, we’ll walk through creating a typographic illustration using the “No
What You’ll Be Creating Today’s tutorial is a little special since it’s a part of a larger series meant to show some love for all of you Wizard of Oz fans out there. We’re going to recreate a character from the story, and not just any character—we’re going to have the honor of building Tin Man.

What You’ll Be Creating Let’s create one more building for our isometric pixel art collection, this time under the Wizard of Oz theme. We’ll make a farmhouse based on Dorothy’s. We’ll finish it in a sepia tone to match the film, but we’ll make it in regular color so that the building is an easily recyclable element to be used if the need arises. 1. Define the Size We should use our pixel art character to find a size we like for our building. Step 1 We’ll start with a square and a simple demarcation of a door to get a better idea of proportions. The square doesn’t need to be big at all, as we’ll add more of a footprint next. Step 2 Let’s add another square, smaller, attached to one side of the original one. Step 3 And finally this longer section that will go on the back of the house. If you really want to be faithful to the movie’s house, check for reference images of Dorothy’s farmhouse. It’s not completely clear which side is the front, but I’m quite confident Ms. Gulch enters through this door. Step 4 Now let’s give the house some height…

As this is not a classic realistic portrait, it allows you as an artist to be innovative and have fun with the design.
