Treat Yourself to Some New Design Resources
We all use Adobe Illustrator in different ways, to different ends. But we can all benefit from making our workflow more efficient. Here are seven ways you can automate or eliminate monotonous, repetitive tasks, so you can focus on being more creative and productive. 1. Use Workspaces for Easy Access to the Panels You Use Most The particular arrangement and configuration of the panels in Illustrator is called a Workspace .

What You’ll Be Creating Our tutorial will create a very evil if not sinister rabbit named Orifice. The beauty of this tutorial is that all of this was achieved using only a mouse. ALL OF IT! I do hope this will encourage those who longingly stare at tablets and Cintiqs online to believe that they can achieve just as much with what they have. Your tools are what you make them… they can be what holds you back, or the driving force propelling you forward. 1. Fleshing Out the Sketch Step 1 Our first step will be to bring in our drawing. I used my scanner at 300 dpi to catch as much of the detail as possible. This process can be a bit difficult if you’re using material in a bound sketchbook. You’ll notice the slight blur of the tail.
