This one was hard to title, but it’s just a quick workflow tip to save you time. Instead of having to type in demensions and DPI every time you create a new document, you can use a series of keyboard shortcuts to force Photoshop to make a carbon copy of the current document settings. Have a watch :)
I’ve got another high resolution Photoshop brush set for everyone’s downloading pleasure! I call these “Destroyed Heraldry,” and they were super fun to make. All of them are super-hi-res (most are 2500px). I spent a lot of time on each one individually, and they are a combnation of over 3 different types of media, and multiple layering effects to get to the end result.
Time for a something a little different today, folks. To create these “light blur” textures I set my shutter speed to around a half a second, aimed my camera at a bright colored object, and spun or moved the camera quickly while the shutter was open. I hope you can find some unique uses for them!
Neil Duerden, one of my favorite Illustrator/Designers gave me the heads up this afternoon about an update to his portfolio. Among the updates are over 50 new pieces to enjoy. If you’ve never had the pleasure of enjoying Neil’s work, you’ve got quite a bit to look at over at his site, NeilDuerden.co.uk. The newer stuff is in the 2009 folder, enjoy!
Ahhh, a new year… full of new possibilities and wonderment, successes and failures, not to mention a new set of free textures! Today I’m sharing some handmade paint splatter textures with you guys (which I thoroughly enjoyed making). I thought we should start 2009 off in a good way. So download away and stop back by next week for another filling of free textures.
We all need a little inpiration every once in a while, and as we all know, typography is a huge part of design. Designers have been forever experimenting with type, and what a better way to share than good ‘ol Flickr. I’ve made a list of some of the best Typography Flickr groups to feed your creative appetite. Click each Imge to visit the groups. (The groups are in no particular order)
Time for a little workspace invasion! I don’t know about you, but I love looking at other people’s workspaces. It just reinforces the fact that we are all so different, not only in our artistic styles, but in the inanimate objects we surround ourselves with. If you’d like to share your workspace with us you can add it to the BittBox User Workspaces Group on Flickr.
