CD design background tutorial by mayshing CD design background tutorial by mayshing
Sample background used in tutorial was done for: 6:10

The tutorial I promised :iconcaliforniaclipper:

Finally got to it, she asked more about the process of design so that's what I did.

I did not tap into the method, but more of the basic concept, and tools you can use to help yourself with.


Every illustrator uses references, heavily.

We don't whip things out of nothing.

Really very helpful. I used the perspective tool a while back, since I saw you posted it in your journal, but I haven't used sketch up yet. Also, I really enjoyed the videos you posted on your blog about the colored shadows; I'm reading a Theory of Colours by Goethe, and I see a lot of overlap.

Thanks for being so helpful,
Sasha

sketch up is a 3D program that's a freeware, its meant to be easy to learn. :)

Yeah, I've used blender 3d so I don't think it will be too hard. I just to have to sit down and learn to use it.

if u used blender you don't need sketch up, but sketch up can do things fairly fast, and u can download free models to work from on your layout. it helps.

From what I've seen, sketch up looks a lot faster, especially for architectural models. Because of the lack of tools, it seems streamlined. I'll probably continue to use blender for organic models. I think I'll check out the free models you mentioned. Thanks.

once u download sketch up, you can use one of their buttons to just download the free models directly into sketch up, turn it to the angle you desire and export as tiff. That helps a lot when you need references.
