As designers in this economy it only makes sense that we do all that we can to supplement our income between client projects. And luckily, there are plenty of opportunities out there for us to do that. It could range from selling stock photos and graphics, web themes, templates and mock-ups, and even video and audio files. The possibilities are endless, and I know that some have even built a steady income and began making a living selling stock art exclusively.
It’s a great time to show off your artwork at the WeGraphics Flickr Community. Post the work you’ve created using WeGraphics resources! We’d love to see it, and it might be featured here as one of our top picks in the coming weeks.
Slider graphics have become a widely used trend in web design. They come in all shapes and sizes, and are only limited by your imagination in how they look and perform. Creating these sliders in Photoshop is extremely easy to do. In this short tutorial I will run through my process for creating a slider graphic using layer styles.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been asking questions to the design community here at WeGraphics, and it’s been very interesting and a lot of fun reading through your answers. I thought it would be a good idea to collect all of these Blank Slate questions into one post for ease of use. The conversations are still going strong so please click a link below and let your opinion be heard!
Our wallpaper of the week this week is by a designer from Rohais, Guernsey named Ange Simon. If you haven’t seen Ange’s work on deviantArt or Behance, your missing out on some amazing photo manipulations. This piece is titled “Infinite”. I really love the use of light in this work. Ange’s ability to paint with light is apparent in all of her work. Check out her website at http://kreattiv.co.uk/
Nothing says “Eye Candy” like a great 3D design. Using 3D elements can make a poster, book cover or magazine ad pop off of the page. In the past we’ve had to resort to 3rd party software to export 3D elements so that we could incorporate them into our 2D design world within Photoshop. Well that’s all changed. If your using Photoshop CS5 then you’re already tinkering in the realm of 3D design. In the tutorial below I will show you how to dabble a bit in Photoshop’s built in 3D tools.
