Weekly Download: Effects for Adobe Illustrator, Series 2 By Dave Nagel I get asked all the time how to create bevels in Adobe Illustrator. There are two answers for this: use the 3D filter, in which case you're limited to flat surfaces, or fudge it by combining multiple instances of your graphic, in which case you're stuck spending too much time on a simple effect that's not easily repeatable. So I've decided to dip into my shallow reservoir of programming knowledge to present you with a few preset bevel filters that will hopefully get you through some simple tasks that require resolution-independent, Photoshop-style bevels. ...Read More »

Weekly Download: Illustrator Art Brushes By Dave Nagel It's been quite a while since I've posted a set of brushes for Illustrator. For one thing, Illustrator brush files are huge. For another, the payoff isn't very great since Illustrator brush tips are vector-based and therefore aren't terribly pretty. Or rather weren't terribly pretty--before now. For I have put together a library of painterly Illustrator Art brushes that will delight the eye and vanquish those vector-based blues. Read on for examples and download instructions. ...Read More »

Weekly Download: Filter Effects for Adobe Illustrator By Dave Nagel This week we enter into a new category in our series of weekly downloads--filter effects for Adobe Illustrator 10.

And, of course, developers can create these filters without having to go through the usual API flaming hoops that keep filter development out of the hands of those of us with no programming experience. Hooray! ...Read More »
