Happy New Year to everyone! 2011 is here and to celebrate that I selected some beautiful fireworks photography from the moment that the new year was born. These photos are from all over the globe, enjoy the view and share your photo as well.
Last month I met some guys that are working on a really nice project that involved an iPhone app. So they invited me to design the web site, called Wellknown.as. I loved the idea and started looking for references and inspiration so I could start the design itself. So in this tutorial I will show you a little bit of how I created it using Fireworks. Of course you can do the same thing in Photoshop, the commands will change a bit but the process is practically the same.
One of the best functions we can use in Fireworks is Mask. It's a basic command that can make our life easiser when working with images or when we need to hide some part of an object. In this tutorial we will create a Polaroid photo using amazing and inspirational illustrations from Adhemas. We already talked about him, but if you don't know the work of this Brazilian artist yet, please check out his site after the tutorial! But for now, let's take a look at how this command works.
I'm sure that pretty much everyone of you guys loves the art of James White, at least, we here over at abduzeedo do. Then, a few days ago we featured on the Wallpaper of the Week an image created by him entitled The O Series, he has even created a tutorial showing how to create that effect in Photoshop.
A few weeks ago we had a very nice Vector Packs giveway from Designious. For that article I did an image using some of the floral vectors to create a floral type. It was similar to the Frilly Bits effect, however for this one we combine the vectors with the font to create a different result. It reminds the work of Si Scott or Gingermonkey. In this tutorial we will use Adobe Fireworks and Adobe Photoshop.
