Sorry for not posting much information/tutorial during Christmas Break but I was terribly sick and had to bear with Pneumonia. I’m feeling better now and I can’t wait to produce more spectacular art this year.
Current projects i am working as of now include: Desktop Wallpaper Calendar, logos, self-portraits, secret project (with Phillip), etc.
I plan to also develop a simple game in Unity later in the year.
Since I didn’t make any tutorials during the break, I’ll post some new ones starting tomorrow (gradient tip *cough*).
It also fun meeting my old friend Ben Dulay today in the Mac Lab. If you have time, check his blog later (he made it today).
P.S. Sorry for accidentally deleting someone’s comment on my logos (it was marked as spam).
If your one of the few that remember, I created this big Illustrator project for the Final project showing all skills I learned in Illustrator and such. It was created in Illustrator CS3 then was brought into CS4. Now I’m working on my current Illustrator project which was made in CS4 and now is being brought into CS5. I hope to finish my current piece soon so I can continue the streak of producing giant, surreal, art-collage type of Illustration. I hope that when I get good enough in Photoshop and Illustrator, that I could remake into something so life-like and realistic. I found that guy’s work while browsing through random stuff on deviant-art. Man! I wish I could learn to do that. Given the limited amount of time in the Mac-lab, I don’t think I’ll ever have any time to do something like this but maybe I will learn when I go to art school or something.
I definitely want to add more depth with my future Illustrator projects with the help of Photoshop, Cinema 4D, and ZBrush which I will watch tutorials of later. But making anything realistic in Illustrator is tough if you do it without gradient mesh but right now, I just want to finish all the projects and continue to take on jobs.
P.S. I was going to upload an image of the menu(WIP) I redesigned, but I guess dropbox didn’t sync it in time(bad dropbox!).
I have done a lot of complicated things in my illustration and they all involve some useful steps in helping you be a good illustrator. I have done too many things to make tutorials of so I will just help you learn something I did on my recent updates to my illustration. So starting today I will show you how to envelope/distort a symbol on a curved surfaced giving you a nice 3D look to it. Keep checking for it guys, it’ll be up later I promise.
It seems that I have talked a lot about my illustration project but I don’t think you guys know what I’m talking about, except for the people I sit next to when i work on this. So it’s nowhere near finished and the Final is coming up but I’ll try to solve this mess as fast as I can. This here is just a little taste of what you guys will expect. Some people have given me really weird reasons on its designs (pollution, social hierarchy, isolation, etc.) but I’m interested in also what you guys will make of it.
Monday morning, I’m really planning big on some projects happening now. My classmates (Kyle W., Padraic T. , and Trevor O. ) and I are working to develop a game ( for the Mac Lab). This proof of concept (of what we can do so far) game will be on Kyle’s website for now. We trying hard to learn tutorials so we will become better programmers and designers as we each aspire to become game designers/programmers. We will be using Unity and possibly Torque for this long project.
