What You’ll Be Creating Smoke trails are elegant, beautiful, and amazing to watch. Thin wisps of smoke dancing through the air reveal just how fluid our atmosphere really is. The effect is deceptively simple, and the dynamics of it are dizzyingly complex.
For a while, it seemed liked every client wanted grungy graphics. This might sound familiar, “I like it, but can we grunge it up more”. Don’t get me wrong, having some grunge can create a great deal of depth to a design or illustration, but there can be to much of a good thing. This is the technique I use because it is quick and consistent, making it easy to create grunge text vectors. Notes: Grunge Text Vectors This tutorial was created with Illustrator CS3. You should be alright if you have Illustrator CS2. I suggest having the Raster Effects at 300 dpi. This will generate the best quality in the effect. You can change this by going Effect > …

What You’ll Be Creating In this part of the series we’re going to learn how to draw small rodents like mice, rats, squirrels and others. First we’ll learn about the general traits of rodents and then about all the features of actual species. 1. General Rodent Anatomy Though very different, small rodents share some body features you can use to learn faster about multiple species at the same time. Skeleton The skeletons of mammals generally look alike, but you can find even more resemblance among species. The most characteristic features of rodents are: Elongated, tapered skull with huge incisors Big head Small chest Flexible spine Narrow hips Sharp, prehensile claws Short legs Hind feet slightly larger than front ones Ability to sit upright Very agile forelimbs Don’t be confused by this iconic “sitting squirrel” pose—a squirrel is built the same way as a mouse The skeleton of every animal can be simplified to basic forms that are easy to reproduce in various poses. This is a kind of artistic skeleton—it makes a proper base for the rest of the body without engaging us with the shape of bones or other unnecessary things. To learn more about using a simplified skeleton check my tutorial about poses . Body Fortunately for us, a rodent’s body is covered with quite loose skin that conceals the outline of the muscles. When you add fur to it, it’s obvious there’s no need to learn the actual musculature of these animals. Still, muscles define the shape of the body, so there are structures that you need to remember. Head Since rodents’ skulls are very similar, their heads can be drawn in a similar way too…
What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial you’ll learn to make an isometric pixel art car. Have your character ready; it’s going for a ride. We’ll be creating a relatively generic sedan. It won’t be too flashy, which is ideal for recycling many times over on the same illustration (useful if you’re making a city scene!). But even though it’ll be generic, it wouldn’t hurt to see some reference images; maybe there are simple design elements from actual car models that you can incorporate into your car graphic. Make sure you have already gone through the isometric pixel art character tutorial ;
