Hey Guys and about Three or Four Gals it seems,

Im not trying to be like Frenden, but Im making some tutorial videos in relation to creating tee designs.

I've had the idea for the a long time, and Im finally getting around to making em.

So if you are interested in some workflow with PS,

check here for an ongoing thread of a shirt Im creating.

Im trying to make them short, and stupid funny too.

Also I have some basic tutorials HTML style at

http://blog.jimiyo.com

One of my sayings is "Many roads to China." I understand there are hundreds of ways to do things, so please, don't take my tutorials/tips as end all. Im always willing to learn if you have a more efficient way of doing things.

This is round one. Im going to try to go through a couple shirt designs, doing the videos over and over with the same content, and eventually try to get a very refined, easy to understand version. I think it will take a few times. Im having to learn some sound and video editing. After all is said and done, Im thinking about compiling the info, and pitching it as a product maybe. Dunno. We'll see.

Either way, its good promotions. You help people, they help you.

    Awesome tuts! Thanks man! I watched them all. You definitely have a wicked illustration style and some great techniques. I need to experiment more with PS and stroking paths, I have been using in Illustrator for most of my stuff.

    I especially like your "Revelations" shirt at DBH. How long did that one take you?
  • jfinley

  • jimiyo

    laser eye effects. similar to the stuff being requested.

    essentially, just use color dodge. try coloring on a on a new layer, then change it to color dodge.

    cheers.

    yours truly.

    @ Jimyio http://www.worth1000.com/
    Photoshop contest most winners get around $100-$200
    I know that you want to make some contest cash this year so If your not on already I think you could make some easy money here.
  • jimiyo

  • Kolby

    where my left ear go?
    haha
    that was awesome man!

    Wasnt really a tutorial though.
    More of "Look what I can do bitches! Mwhahaha!"
  • jimiyo

    did you see where i drew the pecker on the stick man? its like half a second.

    i plan to write html on the techniques i used. mainly just a test run on some video editing software. ;j
  • Kolby

    Haha! Didnt catch that! I had to back up and hit pause a billion times just to catch the first one!!!
  • jimiyo

    another process video
  • jumpy

  • Setup85

    Laser eye cat vid is great, haha.
  • jimiyo

    thsnk jumpy, setup85. :)

    drewB said: jimiyo, those are all with the pen tool in photoshop simulating pressure?
    you don't hand draw via a wacom?

    depends on the video. the newer ones are mostly all hand drwan wacom lines. i used penstroke with pressure before i upgraded to cintiq.

    it does have a tendency to look like a specific style of art, like hydro 74 cause of the sharpness, so i dont use it much anymore. the cintiq has really helped. i do miss the prevalence of much varied line wdith though which even with the levels of pressure is hard to pull off nicely.
  • jimiyo

  • Setup85

    Haha all you had to do was use your cats hair awesome.
  • mj00

    Good stuff Jimi, I always enjoy the laser eyes!
  • jimiyo

  • jfinley

    this tutorial would have been far more impactful if there had been obnoxious house music playing the whole time

    You're right, it could use a more skullified soudtrack.
  • jimiyo

    heavyprints. i use Camtasia studio to record, it allows you to choose which window. is that what you meant what SW that allows you to use the cintiq?
  • gaunty
