    How to Create a Three Color Wolf Skull in IllustratorPreview
    3 shares
    Clients often ask us for mind blowing vector images with a low number of colors and no gradients. The question is how can you add depth to an illustration, give it an artistic feel, and still keep it commercial? One solution: concept, variable line thickness, contour, shadow and fill color. In this tutorial I thought of sharing with you the process of designing an aggressive wolf skull using just white, black, and grey . I previously drew a similar one for a clothing company whose name I cannot disclose. I am using Adobe Illustrator CS3, a Wacom tablet (not compulsory), and a picture of a wolf skull.Read More…

    2009, Big % Increase & GraphicRiver Beta InvitesPercent
    Looking back on last year, Envato had a pretty big 2008 by any measure. We jumped from 4 sites to 13, a million monthly visitors to 5 million, and while our team began the year numbering 12, we ended it totalling 55 talented reviewers, editors, managers, developers, writers and support staff. With such a crazy year in the rearview mirror, it is with no small excitement that I can say that 2009 is going to make 2008 pale in comparison. And today I'm here to make a huge announcement for all the authors of our marketplaces, give beta invites for a major new site, and give sneak previews for some of our Envato plans!Read More…

    A Detailed Look at the 960 CSS Framework200x200
    29 shares
    CSS frameworks are bloated. CSS frameworks are for people who don't know how to code. CSS is too simple to implement a framework. If you've ever read a tutorial on a CSS framework, I can guarantee that many comments mimic the previous statements. My guess is that the majority of these comments are stemmed from slight ignorance. Once you take the opportunity to spend some time with 960, you'll be amazed at how much time can potentially be saved when developing your web applications. At the very least, take ten minutes to review the framework. You can always press the delete key...though I doubt you will! Read More…
