Text blocks are a great way of highlighting text from a complex background. This particular quick study was inspired by the "1. Highlighting Text" in the digital design trends 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pqia2i8d8lY
Superb tutorial video on how to approach a digital painting in Photoshop, and how to blend colours convincingly. Also great technique on adding shadows and highlights in order to get the whole range of tonal values into a work.
These piano jazz beginner tutorials are at a slower pace, but this YouTuber has lots of videos to check out!
These YouTube tutorials are by someone new to me on YT, and the Jazz overview is one of the finest music theory videos I've seen. It's pretty rapid fire, but well worth pausing and considering.
The information on the tritone in the major scale and how it's notes define diatonic chords which are dominant or predominant, is frankly amazing to me! Great description of what gives chord families their characters, and what modifiers to look out for.
I shall need to keep checking out this guy's material.
This amused me no end - captured audio first with Audition, non-scripted basic phrases of introduction. Edit pauses and errors out.
Important that and then lip sync. Then manage the head movements, eyes, etc in each pass. Then keyboard based input. Pay attention to eye movements and blinks.
By Deke McClelland, tutorial on how to amazingly transform two simple circles in Illustrator into a swirling colourful flowering vector effect. This is really excellent - shows just how powerful the Appearance Panel is, as well the some Effects like the Effect: Distort & Transform: Transform with it's dialogue box. Also the Effect: Stylise: Outer Glow.
Great short tutorial on colour correction and colour grading in Adobe Premiere Pro using Lumetri color panel with Lumetri scopes. Also tips on aspect ratio and overlaying film grain for cinematic effect.
This was largely constructed using the Illustrator Pencil tool and other really useful tools in it's group such as the Smooth Tool. All the darker areas were blocked out with drawn vector paths and filled in with colour (on layer per colour) and the lightest tone simply filling in everything else from underneath.
This is probably my first real attempt at vector full length view of an individual in a simplified style, but not flat (ie details like folds in clothes etc). What became interesting was how to block out shapes that in overlap in nature (and in Illustrator layers overlap too!!). The face and chest are interesting as the chest is underneath the t-shirt and jacket, but the face is above the jacket, so to speak.
This tutorial is awesome - how to create constantly moving networks of nodes and connecting lines, which is such a cool effect. The line is created using a Beam effect, as this object has a start and an end point which can be defined as the position of two nodes ie. the beam ends will move in relation to the movements of the connected nodes.
