Today’s post is my own redesign of the costume DC Comics character Superboy. Also, free art giveaway!
I’ve decided to unleash some of the vast store of Photoshop knowledge I’ve gathered over the years into a top 10 list of tips.
For all you comic artists who haven’t yet went to an all digital workflow, this one’s for you. As you probably know, most comic artists work on 11″ x 17″, or tabloid size bristol board. This just works out better for many reasons, chief of which are the fact that it’s just easier to work […]
I had a disagreement the other day with another designer friend of mine who took issue with my use of themes & templates and didn’t understand why I always start out with a theme or template. He argued that my work wasn’t really unique and that the web was being diluted with carbon copy sites […]
I’ve had a few questions regarding web hosting from friends and clients recently, so I thought I’d do a video with my general opinion web hosting these days. Let me know your opinions or tales if you have anything you want to share. I’ll probably do more videos because I have more specific web hosting […]
It’s rare that I have Photoshop gripes or issues. Mostly because I’m usually pissed off at Illustrator, but also because Photoshop is made so well that there are really very few problems. However, I was doing some work tonight and I needed to save some files in the TIFF format. Well, has anyone ever noticed […]
I know this looks like an unfair match-up, but it doesn’t work out like you’d expect. After reading the second Smashing Magazine piece on Adobe Fireworks I thought I would run a few tests with it and see how it stacked up against Photoshop.
Well, apparently you can’t. Very annoying. Obviously I’m just getting into making my own videos for YouTube, and it was pretty surprising to me that you can’t choose the thumbnail of the video that you post.
Here’s a quick video tutorial on adding a stroke to a raster object in Adobe Illustrator. It’s not very intuitive so it’s unlikely you would just stumble onto the answer. It eluded me for years until I finally decided to hunt down the method. Adobe really should just fix this, already. There’s no reason in […]
I just posted a video tutorial on setting up the SWmenufree extension in Joomla 1.5. It’s true that sometimes people don’t know what to do first when they install this extension, so I came up with a basic walkthrough. Here’s the vid (and make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you don’t want […]
I had cause in a project recently to have to reduce the size of a bunch of objects to the same dimensions. Luckily, Adobe Illustrator’s Transform Each command was up to the task. Except… there’s a surprising limitation. Check the video for more info:
This site runs off of the free Magazeen theme created by the folks over at Smashing Magazine. I’ve modified it quite a bit from the default, but I really like it as a starting template. The problem I ran into right away was the annoying “comment date bug”. It became obvious fairly quickly that when […]
This is a Joomla tutorial I made on creating module positions because I saw a bunch of questions on this in the Joomla forums. Sometimes coming to grips with the module positions in Joomla is kind of a pain. So here’s the vid:
People, I just bought iShowU HD so I could start doing some tutorial videos, and boy have I made about every mistake possible within just a few days. Here’s a list of things to watch out for, in no particular order:
