I know that a good magician is not supposed to reveal their tricks, but I love videos that show how great artists weave their magic spells. In that vein, I thought I’d share some beautiful videos that show the behind the scenes process in some great design and art projects.
Note these aren’t how to videos, they are more artful than hands-on, so sit back and enjoy, because they are still worth the time. They give you a greater appreciation of the skill and craft that goes into creating these works, which will help us all a being better at graphic and motion designers.
Glennz Illustration Process – Northern Celebrations by Glenn Jones
Watch master illustrator, Glenn Jones as he makes a cool T-Shirt design. He’s compressed 51 minutes of design goodness into 3.
He sketches the design with a Wacom Tablet and then he turns that into a guide layer, then he goes over it with the Pen Tool in Adobe Illustrator. He must have a black belt in Bézier curves for sure! Be sure to check out all of his videos on Vimeo, they’re awesome!
