Quick Cuts In Photoshop Mix App

Quick Cuts In Adobe Photoshop Mix!  I use this app on my iPhone to quickly select and mask out objects whenever I’m away from home, taking care of a lot of the drudge work that actually takes longer on my desktop Photoshop.  Here I show you how I get parts of action figures and animals for my animations using Adobe Photoshop Mix.

Adobe Illustrator Speed Draw #2: Catwoman + Pose Tool

Welcome to another Adobe Illustrator Speed Draw, this time going for DC’s femme fatale Catwoman!  Selina is not just one of my favorite Batman cast members or DC characters but one of my favorite fictional characters anywhere.  And although I’m happy to draw ridiculous versions of the male Batman villains, when it comes to drawing women I feel like I need to work from some reference as to not fall into the trap of bizarre, anatomically incorrect proportions on women.  For this speed draw I show you Pose Tool, an app on my iPhone that I use to pose a generic mannequin in exactly the pose I want to illustrate.  From there we get into the vector art fun of Illustrator!

Learn Shading and Depth in Adobe Illustrator – A Skillshare Class

New on my Skillshare channel!

Adobe Illustrator is an amazing design program that can execute resizable vector graphics with ease, but many designers find themselves heading over to Photoshop for shading and adding atmospheric depth to their works.  This course focuses on the unique set of tools within Illustrator to give the impression of a three dimensional space, make your characters pop off of their backgrounds, and breathe a new life into the flat vector look.

DIY Soundtracks With Splice Sounds + Garageband iOS

Garageband iOS is the recording studio in my pocket at all times, and with both the internal instruments and sampled sounds I’m able to create entire soundtracks that sound like full live bands.  The main source of my samples is a service/ app called Splice, which aggregates producer packs from cutting edge electronica to live jazz, world music and classical sounds.  In this video I talk you through my process of using Splice to source my individual music samples, then I show you how I’m able to construct my Garageband iOS tracks and play along with the samples to make fully finalized soundtracks for my short films and animations.
