Vector graphics are handy resources that can save you lots of time when creating your designs, but I find it’s the items that you wouldn’t be able to produce yourself that are particularly important. Artistic styles like still life watercolour paintings or 19th century engraved illustrations take years to master, so without ready made design resources it just wouldn’t be feasible to use these effects in your work. Thankfully there’s a range of high quality digital products that allow you to inject the images you need directly into your designs like Neo learning Kung Fu in The Matrix. The Versatile Vector Collection is currently on offer at Design Cuts with 94% off . It contains 1000s of best selling vector products that have been chosen by you, the community. With these packs in your arsenal you’ll be able to produce illustrations you never knew you were capable of!

We’ll start with the base, which is a classic plain donut, and then we’ll use this one to create the four variations: chocolate sprinkles, icing with chocolate chips, plain sugar, and strawberry frosted. The great news is that we will also use the same Scatter Brush to create all the decorations on the donuts. Let’s get started while they’re fresh! 1. Start a New Project
What You’ll Be Creating Eagles are some of the most imposing and graceful birds in the skies today, and I always marvel at their dominating presence and serious expressions. For Americans they are held very dear indeed, taking pride as the country’s national bird.

I almost forgot all about my annual tradition to write a birthday/anniversary post every April when my little blog gets another year older. 2015 marks 8 years of Spoon Graphics, so let’s take a look at how things have changed over the past 12 months. Last year I talked about the tweaks I’d made to my site to survive the apocalypse .
