What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial you’ll create a fun to-do list or organizer application icon with a three‑dimensional effect, ready for desktop or market use. Combine radial gradients, blends, a sense of lighting, and the tiniest bit of perspective for a simply built, but eye catching, icon. This tutorial uses Adobe Illustrator CC 2014, though many of the techniques are applicable to other versions of the program. 1.
What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial you’ll get a full introduction to creating and manipulating Perfect Shapes, the pre-made shape tools that are perfect for creating various infographics and other designs in CorelDRAW. Additionally, I’ll introduce you to the Drop Shadow Tool, which not only adds drop shadows to objects, but also allows you complete control over the shadow’s shape, range, and intensity. 1.
What You’ll Be Creating If you regularly use both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Creative Cloud Libraries offer a way to keep all of your frequently-used assets in one place. Creative Cloud Libraries can also be used with Adobe’s mobile apps, like Shape, Brush, and Draw.
What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial, you will draw your own script font (or work off an existing one) and render it into a completed shiny, golden design. Create dimension in the design by doubling up on the text’s line art, set up thinly stroked paths on one side, and use golden gradients to create gilded lettering fit to print. The following tutorial assumes you are familiar with the
What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial we will go through the process of creating of a simple, flat chicken logotype, which can be used by food industry companies, farm communities, in organic products design, or elsewhere. We’ll use simple shapes and create custom brushes in Adobe Illustrator to make the process of drawing fun and easy. Let’s start! 1. Start From Scratch Step 1 According to the logotype design theory, we should always start our work with preliminary sketches, which are very helpful in creating an effective image, building composition, and finding a unique idea. Make as many sketches as you can and then choose the most suitable one. This preliminary step usually takes even more time than creating a logo itself, so pay enough …

What You’ll Be Creating This tutorial will equip you with the skills to create a style of fractal known as tiles. The concept of a tile (think subway tile or kitchen backsplash) is ideal for a fractal application because of the repeating pattern of self-similarity. In this tutorial we will explore the power of post-transforms, learn how to apply a final transform, and explore different formulas known as variations within the Apophysis program. Explanation of Tiles The fractal tile style comes in a wide variety of shapes, from squares to hexagons and beyond. All of them follow the same basic ideas to create a pattern. Once you’ve conquered the structure for a tile, the possibilities are literally endless, with a whole plethora of fun formulas to be added and shapes to explore. Today we will focus our attention on the basic square tile. 1. Basic Structure of a Square Tile Step 1 To begin creating the structure for our square-tiled fractal, open the Editor and click the button for a New/blank flame . Step 2 The next step is to set up the first transform. We do this because it will serve as a template for the rest of the tile structure. Setting …

Advertise here with BSA Among many powerful tools in Photoshop is the king of kings: the pen tool. This tool is shrouded by personal anecdotes of confusion and frustration. Although creating paths with the pen tool is difficult at first, the process becomes easier with practice and is well worth the effort. Every path is vector-based which means you can scale it larger or smaller without any quality loss. But paths can be very frustrating if you don’t know how to use them. I’d like to cover the process of converting a path into a shape layer. In case you didn’t already know, shape layers are merely paths that can hold fills & outlines. This also means you can apply layer effects and even filters if you convert the same into a smart object. Note that a path is merely a series of points like an outline which can become a selection. It’s the raw material of shapes but not quite a shape in-itself. 1. Drawing the Path First create a new document and just draw any path on the canvas. You might draw a crazy random shape or you might take the time to design a simple icon. I’ve created a relatively flat checkmark which looks like this: Note that you need to actually complete the path in order to create a shape. This means after creating the first anchor point you should place a few more on the document and bend/twist them as needed. Bring the shape all the way around back to where you started and click back onto the first anchor point to close the path. The pen icon will have a little circle next to it when you’…

What You’ll Be Creating Creating 3D text effect does not always require using the 3D tools. This tutorial will show you a simple way of using the shape attributes in Adobe Photoshop CC, along with a couple of layer styles, to create a retro, leather-like, 3D text effect pretty easily and quickly. Let’s get started! Tutorial Assets The following assets were used during the production of this tutorial. Courgette
