DJ Scratch (ScratchVision v2) Illustration Process

Here's a new project I just finished with DJ Scratch (formerly of EPMD). The site is live now at [URL]. So here we go... Note: All of my work is done digitally with a Cintiq drawing tablet. The two programs I used for this project were Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. First, I open up a new document in Photoshop and I lay out the basic composition of the image to see how all of the elements relate with each other. I typically use a light blue brush during this process. This way I don't have to worry about messing up my clean sheet of "paper" with black ink and can get my ideas down faster. After a lot of erasing and repositioning, the rough draft is finished. [Image] In Illustrator, I usually use a custom calligraphic brush set at a 70

Redesign of my portfolio: Crackpixels.com

I had some time to redesign my portfolio. I changed the layout and added a few things such as project descriptions, the ability to zoom a sample of each project, and a slide down feature for "about/contact" among other things. Feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

Cover art for Lyrics Born's Variety Show Season Pho (4)!

Yeah, definitely. Also, the digital tablet is eliminating the middle man (aka the scanner) since you now have the ability to draw directly on the monitor.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. @Hiniku If you're familiar w/ xhtml, css, and a little bit of php, you shouldn't have any problems. Wordpress has a detailed codex (codex.wordpress.com) for developers to utilize. Also, there's tons of tutorials for beginners if you do a search.

New Comic Book Styled Myspace Design + Process Pics

I've done a few of these illustrated, "comic book style" Myspace designs before but this time I thought I'd show some of the process to let you guys see the amount of work that goes into one of these. Everything I do is done digitally and I use a Wacom Cintiq 21UX drawing tablet for all of my work. It's a very handy tool that I've been using for years and I can't imagine working without it. For this project, my client wanted something fresh and unique that would stand out from other Myspace designs. Here is what the finished design looks like and it can now be seen live and fully-coded on their [URL]. [Image] Once that's finished, the next step is to create the rollovers for some of the images that will light up when hovered over, then slice up the images, and finally code it to make everything work. Firebug on Firefox is my best friend during this process. Also, luckily, I have done a few Myspace designs in my day and have pre-written code from various past designs that I usually cut and paste to save time. Well, that's pretty much it. Thanks for reading and I hope you guys enjoyed it!
