I love food, but I have to be honest, I’m much better at eating it than I am at cooking it. After making some ‘Gingerdead’ men using the cookie cutter I treated myself to (by Fred & Friends), I decided that I would probably get better results in Illustrator. In this tutorial I will show you how to create your very own ‘Gingerdead Man’ style cookie using basic shapes, with the added bonus of zero calories!
With the fourth series of Game of Thrones well underway, I thought it would be fun to create a tutorial on how to make a White Walker in Illustrator.
Ever wondered how to create a zombie character in Illustrator using (mainly) basic shapes? Well, in this tutorial I’ll show you how.

In this tutorial we will learn how to create a weather icon using gradient fills, blending modes and the Gaussian blur effect. I think that it will take you no more than half an hour to draw such icon – and this tutorial does require any plug-ins!
Phineas and Ferb is an animated television comedy series. They are also known as “Disney’s Phineas and Ferb“. This tutorial is about only Ferb where we will guide you how to draw Ferb step by step in Illustrator. It’s a very basic tutorial where beginners can also practice this easily. You can also download the source file of Ferb at the end of this tutorial.
I love the nice clean and crisp vectors Illustrator produces and all of the little tricks you are able to do with it! Today we are going to be making a quick and simple jellyfish using mostly simple shapes and the Arc effect.
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.
Stylism makes 8 of the favourite native Illustrator live Effects interactive, giving complete control over the options. Control over the Effect parameters is now done in a more intuitive way compared to using Illustrator’s own dialog boxes. Today we will learn about all the features of Stylism and talk about all the Effects it offers control to.
Turning a good concept into a vector definitely gives it a professional feel and the potential colors chosen can really make it stand out. It’s also a good stepping stone for some great character designing as well! This tutorial will show you how I make characters from sketch to vector and maybe you can learn something new along the way.
