Hi everyone! I am just starting to learn Illustrator. Newbie! Any advice or recommendations for a tutorial..would be greatly appreciated.
Hello everyone! I'm Kevin Fellows. I am many things, I freelance design, Illustrator, cook, power lift/body build, and obsess over Zelda, and video games in general. One day I hope to fulfill my dreams as a video game designer/illustrator. I like to refer to myself as a child of the stars, which is the purpose of my selfie that I made awhile back. It's all done Photoshop, which is rare for me because I use Illustrator the most. Check out some of my other work! https://www.behance.net/kafellows
Hi, my name is Elmano Silva, I'm 22 years old and I'm currently in Madeira's University for my last year in the Interactive Media Design Course. I started drawing when I was 16/17, but only took it seriously about 3 years ago. My goal is to be a mangaka and also game designer, creating nice stories and games and to entertain lots of people with my artwork. I've started with traditional drawings and gradually entered the digital world with Photoshop and my trusty Wacom Bamboo Tablet, but since last autumn I've moved on to Manga Studio.
Here's my selfie. I'm a UI designer, branding design, game design, and sometimes I'm a street life photographer. If you guys like it check out my work. Graphic design: http://snoopypham.tumblr.com Photography: https://www.flickr.com/photos/9601186@N08/
