Creating custom shapes can be a powerful way to add a personal touch to an artwork, and they can allow you to control the composition completely. While you can use 3D programs for this task, as we have demonstrated in several previous tutorials here on Design.CreativeFan, it’s also great to use Photoshop and Illustrator to quickly create shapes with patterns and 3D styles that are perfect for digital art.
In this tutorial, you’ll be walked through how to create shapes and combine them together to create an amazing Asian-inspired artwork.
Along with their biological role, trees have always played an important role in human culture, being a symbol of nature, environment, and even life itself. No wonder that artists, including photographers and painters, often illustrate trees in their works. The variety of shapes, one can witness looking through the tree showcase we have prepared today, really amazes. Some of the trees astonish with their giant dimensions and others feature absolutely weird and unusual shapes, one might not even associate with the tree species.
Sometimes it is necessary to use certain graphical symbols, such as hearts, arrows, smiley, and stars, instead of letters while typing a text. One of the easiest ways to do that is to use a specific font, called a dingbat font. A selection of such dingbat fonts is presented to Cruzine readers today as part of our weekly commitment to provide our readers with free digital fonts. Modern typography offers a wide variety of dingbats: from art images to animals and from ancient signs to fantastic icons. The most prominent representatives of dingbat fonts family are presented right here.
