How to make digital collages

Collage is such a fun medium to work with and making digital collages is really easy.

With digital collages you don’t have to hoard magazines anymore!

Collage is a technique of an art production, where the artwork is made from an assembelage of different images and materials, thus creating a new whole. By combining images you can change the meaning of a piece. From a commercial advertisement to a statement about beauty.

In this blog post im going to give you a few helpful tips on how to create digital collages using an ipad mini, the autodesk sketchbook app and a maglus stylus.

Make amazing landscapes

So you’ve designed an awesome character but are struggling with the background here’s a few tips on how to create a forest background. 

I used a maglus stylus, autodesk sketch app and an ipad to create this forest background for my fox. It can be hard to display depth in a flat image

First create new sketch. Because we’re focusing in the landscape it helps to create a background that is wider than it is tall. For this example my sketch is 4000 x 2000 pixels

Start off by creating a gradient background. For  this i used a blue wash using the charcoal tool and then went over it with the pen tool to create the ground. I then blended them together. I filled in a gentle gradient. I used warmer colours to the front for the ground and cooler colours to the back to give the background some depth.

international womens day

Happy international women’s day!

Today is the day to celebrate inspirational women.

here’s a small tutorial on how i drew a portrait of Malala Yousafzai.  Who is a Pakistani activist for female education. On October 9, 2012, a gunman shot Malala when she was traveling home from school. Just two years after getting shot by the Taliban, she and Kailash Satyarthi, a children’s rights activist from India, won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. She was just 17.
