I’ve discovered a respectable director that I happened to stumble upon, whose works are worthy of mention. His work is so raw, so revealing, and so heart-wrenching. Why do we pretend everything is okay when they are not? Why do we hide negative emotions as if it’s wrong and unworthy of our attention? Life and all its realities surround us. I love how raw this story is. It is but a glimpse of heartache, disappointment, confusion, injustice, and pain. Tragedy. Anger. Beautiful.
If you are like me and just started graphic designing with Adobe Illustrator, feeling stuck with all the new intimidating tools you can use, and need good reliable resources, this is the place to be! I really needed online resources to how to get started because I started taking graphic design courses at my university with a lot of senior and experienced people who I don’t really have relations with to ask for help. Since the projects and results have been demanding and intimidating, I started looking at videos to get myself started. It is a long process which will take a lot of time in the beginning, but I believe things will start to pick up as I pass through the frustrations! The results have been disappointing but also fun! Continue to work 🙂
It’s been so hard to start at home and alone, but these tutorials have been great to get you started! I am definitely a noob and learning everything from scratch, but you can also learn Adobe Illustrator at home thorough tutorials and friends who are able to help :). Here’s one that really helped me get started with doing characters and flat portraits. The guy has a funny-sounding, very animated, but humor-ly dry-sarcastic(?) voice but I still learned a ton by his process. He has very good videos! Everything takes a lot more time and meticulousness than what you see. So many hours… My respect to all the graphic designers and animators! Take a look and good luck ya’ll!
And here’s some of my own personal process while using this video!
This took me soooo much time! And they are just bleh to me but we have to start somewhere! It was cool getting this done though. Good luck with your own!
