  • Illustrating Resources

    I'm not a good illustrator - quite frankly, I suck at it!

    I'm looking for some resources to help with my drawing/illustrating skills.

    I'm not referring to the Adobe software program, rather, I'm looking for resources to help improve my drawing by hand skills.

    Create many still lifes and go "wild".

    pencil, charcoal, whatever your heart desires.

    Within the last year I think I have done around 20-30 still lifes....they are so great.

    //end sarcasm,lol

    There really arn't any "usefull" books in my opinion.

    Through all my drawing class's for prequiets for illustration I never set a hand on a book... besides for life drawing- cause that can somewhat become "technical".

    Drawing is all about spatial relationships... and to better understand those spatial relationships it takes practice... not a book.

          Thank you, don't know exactly but it looks similar and portraits the same feel as DIN, such a great typeface.

          Thank you again, much appreciate it!...

          CS6 is perfectly fine. Even though it can be awkward to ask someone to save down to CS6 for you if they send you a file, it's still fine in most cases. For what you're doing you could probably use original...

          You don't say how long you go without anything to do, but I think what you're describing is common. I experienced this at my second in-house job. There would be days with little to do, then all the sudden...

          It sounds like whoever ordered the graphic file is ordering the shirts through a promotional items vendor who is then outsourcing the work, probably overseas.

          I would certainly have a clause...
