AI Tut, Using HSB To Edit And Generate Colors

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 5, 2013, 7:04 PM

In this week's tutorial I cover how to use the HSB color mode in Illustrator to modify and generate families of colors when making an illustration. It's similar to RGB and CMYK, but many people don't know it's there.

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`smashmethod exemplifies the path of the righteous Deviant. His selflessness, evinced by his tutorials, resources and patient comments is only outweighed by his talent and humility. In a world that is becoming increasingly about taking, it is refreshing and heartwarming to see someone who is so predisposed to giving. `smashmethod sets a wonderful example for all to follow.

Something Beautiful is still my phone's wallpaper. I hadn't realized how old it was! I remember when you first published it and I've been following you ever since. Keep up the fantastic work! I always look forward to new pieces (especially the Mario ones).

Thanks! I'll try, though making things is more of a time issue than a creativity one...

Glad you are still doing what you are doing Mr. Meyer. Never stop being outstanding and inspirational. <3

Been a long time, good to hear from you. Hope you're still kicking at it.

I have to confess: For nearly a decade i have been watching your art and deviations.
Since high school i have seen so many fantastical and unbelievable things you have made.
I even believe it was seeing some of your art that got me into DeviantART.
I love your work and i cannot wait to see what you put up next!.

Thanks, it means a lot to know there are people who have stuck out the ride along with me. Including the long stretches where I never get anything done :)

It was a pleasure, waiting just brought anticipation as to what you would do next.
I remember the first art i saw by you:Don't Play With Bombs Again 2.
Did you ever make an image of a hammer breaking the ground?.

Hi !

Congratulations on your art and music, this all impressive !
I was wondering if I could use your "We seem to misplaced our igloo" picture for a 404 page for a personal website. Of course full credit will be given to you (and a link to this deviantArt or other resource you wish me to point out).

Thanks, cheers.

Strange you would ask, as this image was originally made for that specific purpose for one of my websites many years ago. However, I'd prefer if you didn't as I've just been burned by doing so too many times in the past.
FDeco Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Allright, thanks for the quick reply.

Keep up the awesome work, it's too good to browse DA like yours.
