Structuring Your Portfolio
Now we can begin setting up the structure for our portfolio. The first question you need to ask is what are the main purposes for this portfolio.
Sunburst Header Design in Photoshop
We will create the sunburst design used quite frequently in header designs. The sunburst is semitransparent and used as part of the background with the more prominent design details in front.
Sunburst in Illustrator
In the last article, we discussed the sunburst background image that I used in the YouTube channel art for Mygrafico. In this tutorial, we will create that sunburst graphic in Illustrator.
Surfacing, Layout Workspace, Cameras in LightWave 3D
LightWave 3D from NewTek is the favorite of 3D artists in fields including games, film, animation and print production. It is the all-in-one software package for modeling, animation, dynamics, particle effects and quality rendering.

Tangled Heart with Illustrator
It's my anniversary and I wanted to tangle something in Illustrator, for the front of a card. Starting with a simple heart shape, here are the steps to create the design, which will eventually be used as a raster image in a SVG print and cut file for Silhouette.
Tangling with Illustrator and Photoshop
Have you ever tried Zentangle or drawing tangles? Although some artists scan their finished tangles into Photoshop for post-processing, I decided to see if I could get the same relaxing and calming affect when tangling on the computer.
Templates and Commercial Digital Art
One thing that can speed up your productivity as a graphic artist is the use of templates. Certain digital art projects just scream for the use of templates. Templates fall within two categories based on the production requirements for the final project.
