Illustrator vs Photoshop
One of the best ways to learn is by practicing and trying to recreate styles and effects that you like. We have been doing this here on Abduzeedo since the beginning, always adapting a little bit to add our own unique flavor. The goal is to learn the details behind a style or composition so we can apply some of that to our future work.
Mostafa Abd ELsattar shared a really cool project on his Behance profile where he teaches with an Illustrator tutorial video how he created some incredible illustration of birds and patterns. It's not conventional illustration, it's a very abstract sand colorful set of artworks. I was definitely learned a lot from the video and that's the reason I decided to post here on Abduzeedo. You probably still remember that we used to post a lot of tutorials on the site.
It's been a minute since we've featured a case study on illustration here at Abduzeedo so we felt the need to showcase something special. We're excited to share the work of Anna Kočová via the illustration entitled Surf Bottle. Anna shares with us the process behind the illustration from the basic sketches to the final result.
