trying to brush up on my art skills / graphic design skills.

Posted 12 June 2011 - 02:22 PM

Hi, I pretty much got the coding of my huge website done. Well at least the structure.
I made many icons pretty fast and quick and most look ulgy.

I am here to ask where I can brush up on my art skills. I use gimp and blender.

The Icons I need to make are arrows well I got to redo. I got arrows, hard drive, folder, a picture or image.

I might need to have to redo my divs. I have all divs borderless. It makes the divs look like paper like construction paper. So I assume that I should have a black small border to make it look not like a piece of paper.

Is it always a must to outline your art in black?

I am new to the art world of things. I need to be able to at least make some decent artwork for my icons.

I would like a tutorial that teaches you on basic concepts... like the first step to draw something is to figure out the point of view how you want it to appear. I want mainly my icons mostly as if your staring at it.

I would like any tips any of you have about making graphics for your website. I been looking threw some tutorials on here on gimp.

I made my own icy texts. I would like to try and keep into a frosty theme.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If you are looking for icon design flip through psd tuts... good stuff.

if you are looking at more digital drawing and painting check out conceptart.org for theory and a place to show case.
