Vectortuts+ is all about helping people turbo charge their skills, and today we have another special community post that will help our readers take their images to the next level. The best thing is, you can be part of it too! Find out more at the jump.
How to Participate:
- This workshop contributor has offered a piece of work that they would like help with, please keep this in mind when you share your thoughts. The images are not perfect, but they can be with the right advice and some friendly encouragement. (Vectortuts+ reserves the right to delete any rude comments)
- If you're better with pictures (let's face it, most of us are) feel free to take a screenshot of the image using Little Snapper, Skitch or a similar program and paste a link to the annotated image in the comments section with an explanation of the tweaks.
If you want to take part in the next Vectortuts+ Workshop:
Add your work to our facebook photo gallery or submit it via the Tuts+ Workshop form, with a description about the piece and the help/advice you're looking for. We will chose one to be published on our site as part of the next Vectortuts+ Workshop, if you're not chosen straight away - don't worry - your work will be chosen for a future session.

Details: "Hello! I’m 24-age student from Poland and I’m just beginning my adventrue with computer graphics. All I have created is a result of my own work at home, with no professional preparation, just from my head and hands. Now I’m thinking about getting some professional skills – by getting a job or a trainig in some Graphics Studio. Just because I like it so much and because It’s a opportunity to turn my hobby into my profession. Who don’t dream about this?
Especially I like creating characters with futuristic features – as You can see at this graphics. I also want to express an idea of peace, hapiness, freedom and music – that’s why my characters are full of colours, smiles and energy.
If You like this kind of things – please contact me. Soon I will also show some more of my works."
