Some people misunderstood the intent of my last post. It was certainly condescending toward the "thieving" artist. But it was not in a sanctimonious-dean-accusing-a-student-of-plagiarism way, but in an experienced-thief-shaking-his-head-at-the-burglar-caught-by-leaving-tracks-in-the-snow kind of way. Because let's face it: all artists are thieves, if you count being influenced by images or ideas that you didn't create as stealing*. So it's not "good artists borrow and great artists steal"; it's good artists clumsily pick-pocket, and great artists pull off the heist of the century.
Step 9: Having just said that the face has shape even without the eyeball, that doesn't mean we can skip it altogether, does it now? Let's sketch it in. Don't use white, use a mix of pale grey-beige and then brush over with the skin tone - I've found that this combination very closely resembles the actual colour of an eyeball (the skin tone is generally reflected on the highly glossy surface).
This past Friday was the Abduzeedo meetup here in my hometown of Porto Alegre. It was really cool, we had a lot of fun and a lot of beers! When I was leaving I noticed the neon sign outside the pub and it really inspired me to create a tutorial on how to acheive that type of effect in Photoshop.

Pixel art is a retro form of digital art which is gaining a lot in popularity these days. Pixel art is generally thought of as a computer graphic where the image is literally drawn pixel-by-pixel in tiny detail, usually using a limited color palette and primitive computer graphics tools. For instance, Microsoft Paint, which hasn't been updated or changed in years, is a perfectly suitable tool for creating pixel art.
When one of world’s best-known usability experts, Jakob Nielsen, conducts eyetracking research to test what his usability work has shown, the results generate some beneficial tips for online editors. This is what happened in late 2005, when Nielsen and Kara Pernice Coyne, the Nielsen/Norman Group’s director of research, conducted an eyetracking test with 255 people in New York City. With a little more than half of the participants (63 percent) ages 30 to 49, the test generated results applicable to the target audience for most news sites.
