How to color eggs with onion shells.
This must be the most beautiful DIY tutorial I have ever seen. And it so happens to be in style of this weekend. Found on Ulicam, a very nice blog by Ulrika Kestere, photographer and illustrator. For the whole tutorial and lot’s of inspiration, click here.
Updated opinions on some of the popular drawing/art/imaging apps on the market today. Sorry for the lack of updates lately, my new job and skillshare have been demanding of my time!
Description from DA:
NOTE: These star ratings are pit only against each other relatively, not every app on the market!
NOTE 2: My opinions on COREL PAINTER are NOT based on the latest version, X3, which I have not used yet.
I keep seeing lots of debates about what program should be used for what. This is different than the Filetype tutorial I did, where this is dealing with the type of work being done, versus export purpose.
I’m not claiming this chart I made is gospel, but it should give a pretty good idea on what the strengths are of each particular program are based on some basic needs and parameters.
(Of course, your mileage may vary on these ratings.)
"Why does Photoshop rate so highly on Vector?"
Even though Photoshop displays all imagery as pixels, it can IMPORT and EXPORT vector shapes and graphics to a variety of vector file formats including .AI just like Illustrator can. This is very important. Other apps like SAI and Manga Studio are great for drawing with the benefits of vector, but it’s implementation is really for stroked line work ONLY. Their vector layers cannot be exported as vector file formats NOR can they be opened in other programs. It’s not TRUE vector — just a live raster stroke.
