Best of the web for Design and Web Development December 2016
The final monthly roundup of the year. The final instalment features collection of certainly must read design tutorials, and web article published through out the last month of the year.
This tutorial will show you how to use Photoshop’s 3D tools and settings, along with textures, patterns, brushes, filters, and layer styles, to create a sparkling, fun, Christmas ornament inspired text effect.
In this new Christmas tutorial we will make a creative text effect using a Christmas tree branch brush and lots of decorations like glitter stars and a cute silver bow; you can also add tinsel and colorful lights. I am really looking forward to see your results so upload your Christmas tree text effect on our comments section.
In today’s Adobe Illustrator video tutorial we’re going to create a simple geometric pattern using a bunch of hexagons and a nice colour scheme, finished off with some subtle textures. I’ve done a couple of tutorials based on this style of artwork in the past, but I’ve since been enlightened about a third party script that alleviates the tedious process of manually applying the colours, which is the technique I showed in my previous videos.
