Today we will talk about the combination of automatic and manual tracing of raster images with Phantasm. Image Trace feature and Phantasm’s tools will help you to achieve amazing effects that you can not get by using Image Trace options only. Do you want to work faster and more efficiently? Then this article is for you.
Creating an online profile or avatar can be daunting and if you are not comfortable representing yourself on the web, why not create a fun caricature instead? This simple tutorial will show you how to cartoonize yourself, feel free to explore!
In the following Adobe Illustrator tutorial you will learn to Create a simple 3D Vector Button using ellipses and 3D effects. We will also learn how to add multiple fills and also how to combine multiple Blending Modes in order to create some interesting effects.
In the following Adobe Illustrator tutorial you will learn to Create a semi-realistic Electric Extension Cord using some basic shapes like rectangles and ellipses. We will also learn how to use add multiple fills and strokes and also we’ll apply a 3D effect to create an On/Off button.
Here I’ll show you how to achieve an abstract portrait of a girl by using Phantasm and VectorScribe. These not only help to create dynamic shapes but can also restore the dynamic status if it’s lost at any point in your workflow.
In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial you can learn to create a nice and simple Clipboard using the Appearance Panel in order to create some great shadow & highlight effects, but we’ll also find out how to create a conical gradient using the envelope distort.
Today we introduce you the Spiral Raster script which converts raster images into vector spirals that look like variable width paths. Now we have an opportunity to choose one of three tracing methods and control parameters of the base grid. And the most important is that you can export the tracing result as vector files in the SVG format. In this article you’ll find the Spiral Raster script and the instruction for its use.
In this tutorial I want to show you how to create a modern abstract background using standard shapes. Then I’ll show you how to transform these standard shapes into dynamic ones. This will allow you to smoothly manage their settings and even transform them into other objects so you can achieve new artwork in just seconds.
If you’ve ever needed to remove unwanted sections of paths quickly and easily then the Gesture Trimming function in DynamicSketch should be part of your toolkit! In addition to showing how this can be done we’ll also look at how to create a vector outline using a few tools by Astute Graphics.
In this tutorial we will take a look at several ways to create grids, including hexagonal grids, which will be a basis for seamless geometric patterns. Such types of patterns are relatively easy to create; they remain, however, in demand in different design spheres, such as print design, textile design and web design.
