Although I don’t work as a comic artist, I’ve always been fascinated by the process. This was a very fun experiment, and I hope all of you, even you non-comic artists, can learn something new by this series. Supplies Software Adobe Photoshop – Photoshop is probably one of the best pieces of software you can use for sketching because of it’s brush tools and editing capabilities.

How to Get Pixel-Perfect Designs in Adobe Illustrator Pixels are not what most designers are thinking about when they launch Adobe Illustrator, but there are some pretty awesome things Illustrator can do with them. By default Illustrator is set up to be a resolution independent vector drawing and print layout tool -- in short, not for pixels -- but in this tutorial we will go over a few techniques which can add pixel-perfect design to it's list of uses. As regular MediaLoot visitors will know I have previously posted a few articles discussing the advantages of using Fireworks instead of Photoshop for certain design tasks, this tutorial will hopefully do something similar for Illustrator by demonstrating it’s widely unknown ability to work well with pixels. Background The inspiration for this post came to me very recently whilst working on a premium icon pack called Vector Application Icons, my aim for this set of icons was to create a collection of monochrome icons for web applications and other uses such as toolbar icons in iOS apps.
