This Tutorial was initially written in 2007 , some information might be outdate but still it is awesome!
Lets start by creating a new file , pick out the bright orange colour in your selected colours and start off by making a square with rounded rectangle tool
Draw a small circle using Ellipse tool pressing shift while creating will give you a perfect round.
use the pen tool to read a path something like this with stroke edges selected as straight as seen in the following image
Repeat step 4 this time add a central node as well which will help you achieve a better shape by adjusting it using anchor points
Select both the paths and go to object>Expand in the menu which will show up the Expand window , select the stroke expand and hit ok….
now select all the assets and right click and group . This is important as now when we are going to apply a 3D effect to it illustrator will take it as front face….
Now go to Effects>3D>Extrude and bevel with the group selected
Play around with the options in the window i have chosen 42 perspective , extrude depth 25pt , and rotate dimensions accordingly . You might like to keep the preview checked and view what is going on 🙂
here i have taken the image to photoshop to give it some gradience and play around with it since it is already done you can now do anything with it!
Recently i was contacted to draw a doodled map of Dubai for a lovely couple getting married in Dubai . And connecting back to watercolors and paints felt so good.
While i was at it , i doodled some moths and butterflies and then converted them to Photoshop brushes ! . Here is your chance to download the low version for free , by low version i mean 500 px good for your web projects. The high resolution brushes set that is 2400 px can be purchased from my resources store.
here is a preview
The high resolution file is available through my store
Photoshop scripts are Photoshop actions on setriods , i read this somewhere along the way searching for a way to overcome and find a solution for one of my today’s daunting tasks. I had in my around 40 graphics all layered in a single photoshop file which i wanted to convert into JPG and PNG , this i am able to do through a script run of exporting all layers to JPGs and PNGs . My quest was to find a solution to rename all these layers in one go… hmm can take a while to do that !.
I came across this wonderful list of scripts for photoshop which totally came in handy for today’s task and i hope many more to come .. so i had to share these with you .
below is a list of scripts by Trevor Morris Photographics which ofcourse thankfully solved my today’s problem of renaming all the layers in photoshop.
This script generates a two-dimensional array of cloned objects based on the selected layer or group. The user interface also allows you to specify the number of rows and columns, as well as the horizontal and vertical spacing between objects.
This script renames all layers in the active document, including those within groups. The script prompts for a layer name pattern, and then renames and numbers the layers (top to bottom, or bottom to top).
After downloading a script you must copy it into your Scripts folder. On a PC, the path would be:
C:Program FilesAdobePhotoshop (CS or CS2)PresetsScripts
On a MAC the path would be:
Applications> Photoshop (CS or CS2)> Presets> Scripts.
After copying a script to this folder you’ll need to Quit and then Restart Photoshop before the script appears in the File> Scripts menu.
To Run A Photoshop Script To run a script choose File> Scripts and select the script from the list, which will include any script file that was saved with a .js or .jsx extension and saved in the Presets/Scripts folder. If you want to run a script that was saved in a different location, simply choose File> Scripts> Browse and navigate to the specific script you want to use.
f you have been a reader of aivault you might already know that most of my illustrations and works in one way or another does included flowers and ornaments . And now my fascination with ornaments and flowers have grown more intense i guess , and is now more mixed with the grungy look of objects that i like ! .Hence the creation of frames which are floral , ornamental and grungy at the same time. The preview presented below will show you 9 corners which i created using Lace Brushes & Floral Brushes that i created earlier.
