I just posted this screencast video on YouTube where I critique vector art created by a beginner Adobe Illustrator user. These critiques apply to any vector art software.
Video from recent Ustream live broadcast featuring initial vector line art creation for a cartoon gorilla character design.
I also briefly discuss Adobe Illustrator template setup and usage at the end of the video clip.
Check out the final cartoon gorilla character art on my portfolio site.
I recently created an in-depth Adobe Illustrator tutorial for the Go Media graphic design and illustration blog GoMediaZine. The tutorial covers the creation of a cartoon character mascot from sketch to final vector art. The character art is a fun Twitter blue bird cartoon character, and the vector art files as well as icons for use on your own website or blog are available as a free download as part of the tutorial.
Another brief video in my series introducing some great new features in Photoshop CS4 for artists, cartoonists, illustrators and anyone else who sketches or draws using Photoshop.
This video features the excellent new keyoard shortcuts that allow you to drag-resize the size of the brushes using the mouse pointer.
