What You’ll Be Creating Skateboarding is one of those rare rebellious things that ended up changing the lives of thousands if not millions of kids around the world. It’s something that continues to fascinate me, and that is why I decided to create this in-depth tutorial on how to design your own skateboard piece using Adobe Illustrator. The process will rely on the use of basic shapes (rectangles, rounded rectangles and circles), and some help here and there from the Pathfinder panel. 1. Setting Up Our Document
What You’ll Be Creating Join me and follow this joyful and meditative tutorial if you wish to learn some simple coloring techniques in Adobe Illustrator. We’ll use the Mesh Tool while drawing a cute cartoon cow, floating in the yoga Lotus Pose above a green meadow. Grab your mouse or tablet pen, relax your mind, and let’s get started! 1. Create the Basic Cow Shapes From Your Sketch Step 1 Start by making a rough sketch either on paper or digitally. You can use my image, which I doodled with the Pencil Tool (N) right in Adobe Illustrator. First of all we are going to form the basic shapes of the head. Use the Rounded Rectangle Tool with 50 px Corner Radius to make a smooth shape for the nose, and use the Warp Tool (Shift-R) (you can check my tool settings in the screenshot below) to deform the nose, making a slight bulge on its upper part. Add the cow’s lower lip and warp it as well, dragging its lower part down a bit. Step 2 Change the fill color on the nose to more of a skin tone, and add an ivory-colored head base with the help of the Ellipse Tool (L). Send the head shape to Back (Shift-Control-[) and draw a pair of rounded shapes with the Pencil Tool (N) , or use the Ellipse Tool (L) as well to add two squashed ellipses. Step 3 Let’s add the basic horn shapes to our cow’s head…

I originally planned to write this tutorial on how to create a retro 3D effect that mimicked the offset red/blue images that were seen in old 3D movies, comics and posters. But then I thought, rather than just recreate the effect, why not try and produce an anaglyph 3D image that actually works?! So I boggled my mind with the science behind stereoscopy and figured out how to create some really cool 3D images that pop out from your screen. Grab yourself some old school 3D specs and follow this guide to learn how to produce your own anaglyph 3D images in Photoshop. In order to follow along with this tutorial and see these images in full effect you will need to acquire some 3D glasses with red & cyan lenses. You can find the original white card style glasses online for a couple of $/£/€, which work perfectly well. Anaglyph 3D pictures can be created in two ways; The first technique combines two separate images from a camera and results in some really cool photographs. The second technique produces the effect with just one image, which makes it particularly useful for illustrations, or any photograph that wasn’t captured in stereo. Creating Anaglyphs with 2 images The 2 image technique really helps you understand the science behind stereoscopic images. Anaglyphs are created by combining two images from different angles, much like the way our eyes work. Try looking at an object on your desk and close one eye, then the other. Notice how the object appears to move? This technique uses the same principle. Two photos are taken, either with two cameras strapped together at a set distance apart, or …
How To Create Anaglyph 3D Images That Really Work!
What You’ll Be Creating We all used to draw as kids. It was easy back then, no matter if you used color pencils, a stick, or your finger on a steamy window. But even then you might have noticed that some children drew better than you. Not that you knew what “better” meant—all you knew was the sweetness of praise. Whenever you heard someone else being praised, and your own work ignored, you felt worse and worse. Eventually, you gave up on drawing. Why would you continue if nobody cared? Now, whatever the reason, you want to come back, but it seems so scary. Those children who never gave up are working as professionals now, and their art looks almost magical. How could you possibly bridge that gap? Will you ever catch up on

Illustration by Hanna Sandvig , featured in ImagineFX reader EXpose. Design and Illustration careers are as varied as the artists in them. Today, we’ll explore the world of freelance illustrators. I sought out and questioned freelancers from around the globe who were gracious enough to share their experiences with me. We’ll discuss their training, daily tasks, how they source clients, the media they work in, self-promotion and motivation, and more. Unlike the life of an in-house artist, where you work with a specific company, freelancers need to manage their time, money, and client base wisely in order to keep things running. They are often their own boss and take on multiple roles (promoter, social media guru, accountant, artist agent, art director, and more) in order to keep things moving throughout their career. I sincerely hope you find the following to be informative, motivating, and inspiring as I do after having poured over multiple sets of answers from a variety …
