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.
In this tutorial we will use Adobe Illustrator to make a 100% vector grunge abstract background. We will learn how to layer with transparencies and blends in order to achieve depth and a grunge style. We will also use blends and a scatter brush to create a bokeh highlight effect.
In this tutorial we will learn how to make accurate vector constructions using Arc start-end direction Tool, Dynamic Corners Tool, Dynamic Shapes Tool, Line tangent to two paths Tool, PathScribe Tool, Snap to Collisions Tool and Rotate At Collision Tool. Such an arsenal of wonderful tools provides us with complete control and comfort while creating Clothing Zippper.
This tutorial will teach you how you can create a nice globe with binary code design and a beautiful sunburst effect.
In this tutorial we will learn how to draw a winter background by using the vector blurring technique, which allows us to create illusion of motion and depth of scene.
Low poly art would usually be made with 3D applications such as Cinema 4D to build three dimensional models, but we can create similar styles in two dimensions directly in Illustrator. Follow this tutorial to create a cool low poly mountain illustration using vector paths. We’ll add gradients to simulate a 3D effect then take the design into Photoshop to polish it up with cool textures.
The traditional methods of creating pixel art one pixel at a time no doubt yields the best results, but it’s an extremely time consuming specialist craft. Today I’m going to show you how to cheat and make use of Illustrator’s Object Mosaic feature to create cool 16-bit style pixel art the easy way, allowing you to quickly produce retro style sprite graphics for your designs and artworks.
