What You’ll Be Creating You’d think that long hair was the hardest hair to render… well that and curly hair, however I have news for you. From my experience from vectoring hundreds of vector portraits, short hair has always been more time consuming and required more precision.
What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial we will create a crazy poster, illustrating a famous quote by Oscar Wilde – “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken”. We’ll apply various Warp Effects to create the elements easily. Learn to make a gentle grain effect to give our poster a vintage look and do some freehand lettering. Let’s get started! 1. Create a Fancy Top Hat Step 1 First of all, create a New Document of 600x800px size. Form the palette that we’ll be using in our image to make the composition vivid, yet preserving the consistent look of a retro-style poster.
What You’ll Be Creating From Space Invaders to Super Mario, pixel art is well known within the game industry of yore. It’s quite likely that you grew up seeing a great deal of the art form through gaming consoles or PCs without a great deal of investigation into the process of creating it. If, however, you were anything like me as a child, simply guiding Link through Hyrule was not enough: you wanted to create the artwork he swung his sword in, too. As pixel art in game design, illustration, and other media has made quite a comeback in recent years (likely due to nostalgia and an appreciation of a beautiful, if sometimes tedious, style of artwork), it’s a great time to ask the question: “What’s the deal with pixel art?” What Qualifies as Pixel Art? Video game style pixel sprites. Considering that everything you are viewing on your monitor, tablet, or phone is comprised of many, many pixels, the often asked question …

I recently received a great tutorial suggestion from a reader named Brigid who asked if I could create a guide to creating an origami style illustration. We’ll use Adobe Illustrator to tackle this design for its advanced shape editing abilities and make particular use of Smart Guides to perfectly align our vector paths. Once the outline of our origami inspired design is complete we’ll then bring it to life with vibrant colours, resulting in a modern graphic that would look great as part of a logo design. The design we’ll be building in this tutorial is an origami inspired graphic that makes use of hard angled lines to create intersecting shapes which mimic paper folds. A good place to start is Google Images to gain an idea of the shapes we’ll need to use create a simplified outline of our subject, which in this case is a hummingbird. It’s also a good idea to familiarise yourself with the general shapes of real life origami creations. Using an image as reference, use the Pen tool to draw a simplified outline using just single clicks to create straight lines. Complete the shape by closing the path at the start point. Turn on Smart Guides (CMD+U) to make it easy to align the next series of paths to the existing anchor points. Smart Guides will show little green notifications when you’re snapped to an anchor point, so use the Line tool to intersect the shape between various corners. When you’re happy with the number of segments draw a selection…

What You’ll Be Creating Of all parts of the body, the hand is by many considered to be the hardest to draw. We all have stories of how, early on, we would keep our characters’ hands behind their backs or in their pockets, avoiding as much as possible the task of tackling hands. Yet paradoxically, they are our most readily available reference, being in our field of vision every moment of our lives. With just one extra accessory, a small mirror, we can reference hands from all angles. The only real challenge, then, is the complexity of this remarkably articulated organ: it’s almost like drawing a small figure onto a larger one, one doesn’t know where to start.
With so many different tools, methods, and extensions within Inkscape, it can be pretty
