Vector TUTORIALS [Adobe Illustrator] :::Part 1:::

  • Part 1 ::: 2013
    I've been writing tutorials for Tuts+ since April 2013
    and it's a great pleasure for me to share my knowledge and experience with you

    All of my tutorials are totally FREE 
    and dedicated to vector graphics and Adobe Illustrator. 
    You will discover some fun and easy tips & tricks, descriptive techniques and
    step-by-step screenshotsYou can also download some nice freebies 
    in each of my articles in order to see, how the source file was made.

    In this project I've gathered all my tutorials written last year (2013). Check them out by clicking the titles.
    Please enjoy and let the inspiration guide you!
  • This tutorial goes through the full process of creating a cute dressed fox, drawn and colored in a "flat" style. We will learn how to create fur, clothes, accessories and texture using simple methods in Adobe Illustrator.
  • In this tutorial we will learn how to create a cute Teddy Bear and some school themed items. We'll be using basic shapes and the Pathfinder panel, so you don't need a graphic tablet or advanced drawing skills for making up such character. Let's dig in!
  • This tutorial will go through the process of creating a symmetrical Halloween Bride's of Frankenstein portrait in Adobe Illustrator using the Reflect Tool (O).
    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, because the spooky theme is a wide field for creativity and a great chance to unleash your wild imagination exploring new styles, methods, and creating new characters! The most inspiring Halloween style for me is Tim Burton's art – his movies and, especially, his cartoons. In this tutorial I've tried to create a character in his style.
  • In this tutorial we are going to take a walk through the process of vectoring my rendition of the "Queen of Hearts" playing card with an eccentric young girl who has an old-school sleeve tattoo. I'll be using various Adobe Illustrator brushes and tools to create this illustration, so let's get stuck in.
  • In this tutorial I'm going to show you a step-by-step drawing process of a cute hipster bunny. We'll be transforming simple shapes as well as using Pen Tool (P), making our own textures, using transparency and some other cool Adobe Illustrator tools and features. Let's do it!
  • In this tutorial I'm going to show you the inspiring process of drawing a Vampiress and her Voodoo-pet in a vintage portrait illustration with grungy elements in Adobe Illustrator. We will move step-by-step from sketch to the final vector colored image using custom brushes, gradients and the Pen Tool. Ready? Let's get started!
  • In this tutorial, I'll be showing you how to draw a slick and funny worm character from rough sketch to the final illustration. I'll be using various Adobe Illustrator tools and blending options. Let's get started!
  • Have you already started to prepare for Christmas? In this tutorial we will learn how to create a festive and glittering Christmas wreath with the help of self-made brushes in Adobe Illustrator. Let's get started!
  • We often stumble upon various seamless patterns in our life – textile and fabric, wrapping paper, website backgrounds and many, many more. Have you ever wondered how to make your own pattern? In this tutorial I'll show you how to create a summer underwater seamless pattern in Adobe Illustrator from sketch to the final image with the help of  Blob Brush Tool, Pattern Options and Scale Tool. Let's get started!
