Free Vector Art

Free Vector Art

Free Vector Art (Adobe Illustrator file)

And now, ladies and gentleman, something completely different. I guess I’ve given away enough of free layered PSD files in last few days and now it’s time for something new. Today, I am giving away vector art.

Now, you probably know why vector art is so cool. Of course. You can re-size it all you want and there will be no quality loss. But, that’s not all. If you are even remotely familiar with Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW or any other vector editing software, you will be able to, with few clicks of the mouse, turn it into something new and completely different, so originality is guaranteed.

Feel free to use this vector emblem in all your graphic design projects. But also, scrapbooks, tshirt design, commercials … whatever you could think of.

Today’s Free vector art download consists of the following vector file formats:

* CDR (CorelDRAW 8.0 and newer versions)
* AI (Adobe Illustrator 8.0 and newer versions)
* EPS
* SVG (scalable vector graphics files can be read and modified by a large range of tools)
* and PNG for all of you who do not use vector applications

All vector formats can be colored as you please, re-sized or changed in any other way – commercial use allowed. But, I will be more than happy if you drop a backlink to my blog :D

Download Free Vector Art –  AI, EPS, CDR, SVG (and PNG) zipped

3. .cdr (Corel 8.0 up to newer versions)

5. .svg (SVG, or scalable vector graphics files can be read and modified by a large range of tools)

August 2010. Desktop Wallpaper Calendar

August. Yes, it is here – the hottest month of the year!

I made this August Desktop Wallpaper Calendar for a monthly competition on Smashing Magazine, and they accepted it! (thank you guys)

My theme was nature, but not just usual nature visualization but “Nature’s dream” – well, at least I thought what nature’s dream might look like in August.

This wallpaper can be downloaded on Smashing Magazine and it is available in two different versions: with calendar and without calendar!

However, there are loads of high quality Photoshop brushes (w/commercial license) available in my little Shop of Wonders :) so feel free to visit ->

P.S.

Wooooo … that’s kinda cool …

Summer Vacation Corners, Digital Stamps - Photoshop Brushes

Summer Vacation Corners, Digital Stamps – Photoshop Brushes

Gang,

I bet that you, just like me, can’t wait for the summer vacation (yeee!). And I bet you’ll be taking loads of photos this summer again.  OK. I’m not that much of a gambler, I know. Can’t lose that bet. Some things are just … tradition and we do it every year, again and again. And we still love it!

As I said, I know you’ll be (as always) taking loads of photos again and you’ll be wanting to make nice digital scrapbooks (photo cards, paper for scrapbooking, rubber stamps or other commercial designs) out of them.

If you are into design business you’ll be loaded with all kinds of summer themed design projects. Being it web, print, fabric design, advertising, banners design … you name it …

And if you are photographer, you’ll be wanting to decorate your photos for your clients.

And if you are Photoshop or graphic design enthusiast you’ll want to play, experiment and learn with new design elements, in this case digital stamps and to be more specific – Photoshop brushes.

So, that is why, today I came up with a brand new, fresh, still warm (had to put this in red, since it’s still warm, or should I say HOT), Photoshop brushes:

Summer Vacation Corners

Yeeeee!!!!

And here’s what we have in the pack:

  • 42 brushes in two sizes (so you won’t have to over-stretch them), they go up to 3000 pix @300 dpi (which means they are print ready)
  • we’re talkin’ 6 corners, each of them segmented into 7 brushes – so you get 42 corner shapes combination
  • commercial license is, as always, included (so you can make money with them – no questions asked)

Note: Sorry, 5 days subscription free download offer expired. Download is now available after joining GBG. Please read about our free download policy and join our GBG for more free downloads. Thanks!

After 5 days, Summer Vacation Corners – will be moved to the GBG Members Downloads repository.

There, they will remain at the permanent disposal to Silver, Gold and Platinum GBG Members where they will meet a happy crowd of:

New PS Brushes sketch: Fantasy birds

New PS Brushes sketch: Fantasy birds

Guys! My apartment is a mess! It is the first day of the removal (we’re moving to that house we bought few months ago) and, you can imagine, it’s just boxes all around this place.

So, I thought, since I won’t be making any new posts for a next few days, I’d just show you my mock-up for the next Photoshop brushes I had in mind. I’ll call them: Fantasy birds :)

I started to make this draft today, but, since the movers are coming on Monday, there was now way for me to finish it  today too. I mean, I would need at least two days anyway. So, I hope you like the preview and I promise to have the full package ready as soon as I settle down at my new place.

Until then, stay well, have a great weekend and we’ll talk soon.

:)

Silvia

P.S.

Because, if you purchase 800+ Photoshop brushes MEGA SET before 1st of April, I will send you the Fantasy Birds for FREE ($9.99 value)! And that’s IN ADDITION to all other freebies and bonuses that come  with that set.

The time has come, March edition of GBG eZine is on it's way

The time has come, March edition of GBG eZine is on it’s way

Gang,

I really had some rough time last few months. It was a long, cold winter. After years of living in a rented apartments we finally managed to buy (with a little help from the bank of course) an old house that didn’t seem to be in bad condition – at that time.

We were so wrong! After we started renovating it turned out that nearly everything needs to be renovated. It turned out to be a real money-eater so we nearly ended up on the edge of bankruptcy. We’ve been through some really stressful moments, days, nights…  I tell ‘ya.

But that’s a whole different story of which I might write a book one day when all these events becomes distant past tense and I hope this day will come soon :)

Still, is there there anything that can stop me from making new free stuff for my dear blog visitors and my GBG members?

Of course not!

So, at this very moment I am finishing up the latest edition of GBG eZine which will be about:

  1. Spring (aren’t we all desperate for a little bit of Spring already?)
  2. St. Patrick’s day (Yes, it’s here!)

This means that new edition of GBG eZine will bring you loads of Sprint/St. Patrick’s day themed free and commercial Photoshop brushes, backgrounds, vectors … etc … it is always a big event for me and, judging from your feedback so far, it is always a great news for you too!

So, this is what I had in mind:

  1. St. Patrick’s Day Bokeh Photoshop brushes set LITE
  2. St. Patrick’s Day background – HiRes JPG file: 3600×3600 pix (300 dpi) print-ready, commercial use allowed
  3. St. Patrick’s Day – Classic Ornaments, 6 Photoshop brushes in two sizes! LITE
  4. St. Patrick’s Day Journal Tags (3)
  5. St. Patrick’s Day Photo Masks (4), PNG files
  6. And a regular GBG SPECIAL GBG OFFER (but we’ll keep that  secret for the time being)!
  7. And more stuff, probably a tutorial on how to use St. Patrick’s Day bokeh Photoshop brushes to create nice backgrounds and graphics.

All this should be in GBG members mailboxes within next few days. I hope you will enjoy it.

And I think that’s it in this post. If you’re not a GBG member and would like to get a whole bunch of free downloads and a monthly GBG eZine with even more free downloads you can sign-up here ->

Video Tutorials: Using Photoshop Brushes and PNG files in Photoshop Elements

Video Tutorials: Using Photoshop Brushes and PNG files in Photoshop Elements

Guys,
I received sooo many questions about using Photoshop brushes with Photoshop Elements that I just had to go and make a video tutorials on that topic.

Now, I need to add that I’m totally not surprised that Photoshop elements is so popular these days. It is a great piece of software and unless you are a heavy duty designer pro it will do just fine for all the usual bitmap editing tasks.

It even imports my Canon 5D RAW file format which I can not do with my Photoshop CS4.

I prepared four video tutorials on how to use my Photoshop Brushes and PNG files in Photoshop Elements 8.0.

First video will show you how to work with Photoshop brushes (<- 800+ Photoshop brushes MEGA SET on this link) in Photoshop Elements and this time I used Hearts (grungy) Photoshop Brushes set:

View full screen video –>>

Second video is showing the easy way to work with PNG files in Photoshop Elements, and in this one I used my Tattoo PNG files from Tattoo Photoshop Brushes second edition set. This one I did together with my hubby. He did the narration:

Third video will show you how to create photo masks in Photoshop Elements (ver. 8.0) using my Christmas Photo Masks PNG files (free for GBG members, and if you are not the member you can join here):

View full screen video –>>

And fourth video will also show you how to create photo masks in Photoshop Elements (ver. 8.0) using the same Christmas Photo Masks PNG files but in a different way:

View full screen video –>>

I hope you’ll like the videos. I did not record audio because I’m a shy person, but all that matters is there. Just follow what I do and you’ll be just fine.

OK. That’s all for now, thank you for your supportive emails and your comments on GI Facebook fan page! I love you all!

From PS Brushes to T-shirt to Sale

From PS Brushes to T-shirt to Sale

Guys,

I just have to share this with you. I made this T-Shirt on Zazzle just for the purpose of showing you one of the ways to use Photoshop brushes. I did this T-Shirt and just left it there. Never did any promotion for my Zazzle shop or anything like that. I guess you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when  I received an email from Zazzle stating that it was sold!

Geee!

Yes I know, it looks a bit Twitter. But I created this swirled shapes with leaves a long time ago, back in August 2006. I didn’t know (now I know) if Twitter even existed at that time. Yes, it’s true and it can be easily verified on my profile on iStockphoto.Com (just check the “date uploaded” field).

Anyways, that’s how the “Tweet! Tweet! Springtime!” TShirt was created and sold on Zazzle yesterday.

Tweet! Tweet! Springtime! T-shirt on Zazzle

In case you were wondering, the brushes used for this T-Shirt come from:

Swirls 2 – Photoshop Brushes set
Set of 36 high quality brushes!

This set is compatible with Photoshop 7.0, CS, CS2, CS3, CS4 and CS5.
Commercial license included.

Click here for preview:

Swirls 2 – Photoshop Brushes set is a part of  800+ Mega Set PS Brushes that you can get for 1/2 the price ->>

Birds are added manually, but later on I published Photoshop brushes – Birds, pretty successful set I might say and those two in combination offer many many new possibilities.

That’s, like, just one of gazzilion ways to make some extra income with Photoshop brushes. If I made it, you can make it too. Just make sure you use brushes that come with commercial license. (Do I need to mention that all brushes from my Shop come with commercial license?)

OK. That’s it for now, I know I promised to work on January Edition of GBG eZine and it’s coming to an end and all GBG members will get it next week.

Love ya all!

Photoshop Brushes in Action: Envelope Design

Two weeks ago, I had this idea to create a unique envelope for my sisters-in-law birthday. But, in the meantime, she left for vacation and now she’s enjoying Californian hotels :)

So, I still have a chance to make a unique envelope for her birthday and it will wait for her when she’s back!

So, you guessed, today’s “download and print” freebie is - envelope template.

Photoshop Brushes in Action: Envelope Template Design – Download & Print!

The original size of this envelope template is 8″x5″ on the 12″x12″ paper size, but you can print it on any size (like I did) just use “fit to paper” option on your Print window. For this envelope design I used Swirled Floral Photoshop Edges Brushes set and Floral Shapes Photoshop Brushes set. Both available in  our little shop.

Now, take a look at my short photo story on how to make an envelope. It’s fun and easy so, enjoy!

1. Print the envelope template and cut out the envelope shape. I used fancy-edge scissors just to cover my possible cutting mistakes :)

2. Fold the paper carefully and try to match (as much as you can) the illustrations on the bottom flap and top flap of the envelope. Apply 1/4″ wide double-sided tape along the side edges of the back, starting below the curves.

3. That’s it! This is the Back side of the envelope. The flaps are designed to match one another!

About a book and a little piece of great software – Preset Viewer 2.1

Gang,
It’s been a while, I know, but I’ve been so busy with the Graphics-Illustrations Facebook page (and your response there was so enormous) that time just flew by.

I don’t know if I mentioned that, but among other stuff that I do (like preparing a free Photoshop brush download for my Facebook page fans) I also prepare a book about Photoshop brushes. Working title is: Photoshop Brushes Cookbook. It is an old idea, I started it a long time ago and just recently I decided that I need to sit and get to it seriously.

Among other staff mostly recipes on how to use Photoshop brushes, book will come with a DVD that contains all my free brushes ever published and, of course, some new brushes so that there will be 101 PS brush set there.

The idea was to inspire the reader with various samples of Photoshop brushes usage.

Then, the trouble started, I realized that, if use Photoshop of free brush viewer that I use, I just cannot manage all those brushes efficiently, it took too long to preview and organize them.

So, I decided I need to search the Internet for the right brush Viewer and manager.

And I found it! The name of the software is Preset Viewer, it is done by a nice couple who run a company called Tumasoft and it searches the system for brush (.abr), but not just brush, it looks for pattern (.pat), custom shape (.csh), swatch (.acb, .aco, .act, .ase), style (.asl), compositions (.psd), and image (.bmp, .jpg, .png, and more) files and quickly sorts them for display.

About a book and a little piece of great software   Preset Viewer 2.1About a book and a little piece of great software   Preset Viewer 2.1

Here are some of the features of Preset Viewer when working with brushes, patterns, etc … :
- offers thumbnails, fimstrip and tiled modes, each with three different size options for a total of nine different viewing options.
- Preset Viewer allows you to view any images embedded in a brush or style seperately so you can really “see” what you are looking at
- simple-to-use keywording interface

But, let’s not just recite it’s features. Just head over to the Preset Viewer user guide and see it for yourself.

Do I need to say that I highly recommend it?
If you are Photoshop brushes addict and anything close to Photoshop brushes heavy user, you’re gonna appreciate what this software has to offer.

But, just before you go there, here is a little code for you. Mr. Tuma was kind enough to offer this code which will reduce the price of Preset Viewer from $37 down to $26. CODE: GI-ROCKS

OK. That’s it for today. Don’t ask me when will book be over. Might be sooner than you think :) But still, I haven’t forgotten about you so for the next time I promise more cool stuff! Until then, play with the brushes, create nice stuff and let me know if you’d like to see your work featured on this blog*.

Until then, love you all,
Silvia

P.S.
I will definitely feature your work if it involves some of my free or commercial brushes.

Finally! Finest Floral Swirls Brushes I've Ever Seen

Finally! Finest Floral Swirls Brushes I’ve Ever Seen

I know. It sounds a bit like bragging but, believe me, once you see them, you’ll most probably think the same. And here is why.

These are the brushes I announced week ago. It took almost a month to complete them! And here is a short description of the work involved to get them done:

  1. These were first drawn by hand on Wacom tablet.
  2. These images were then manually traced and re-drawn in in Adobe Illustrator (there is no such tracing software that can replace good old manual work)
  3. Then were they converted to HiRes (2400px) Photoshop brushes
  4. To be presented to you :)

I receive many emails where you praise the quality of my brushes. Thank you. This quality, becomes especially obvious when you zoom in and check the shape edges. They’re fine, smooth edges. Thank you for your emails, these come as a reassurance that I am on the right course even if it takes so much time to produce them. And the procedure above explains how much work is involved. Especially all of you who use vector programs like Adobe Illustrator, you can understand how much work and effort does it take to make such a complex shape, not to mention 16 of them. But still, converting them to vectors and then exporting them is the only way to get real high quality brushes.

And why is this high resolution so important? It is too important when you need to use them on large images, on images that will be printed, or even on small images with a big brush shape or images that will contain just a part of the brush shape. Generally, it is too important when you want your work to look decent.

OK. I guess, by now, it’s quite clear that I am proud of this new set. I am proud and I am happy that I finally finished them. So, here they are. Full shapes (16) and elements (104) that you can use to create your own shapes.

As usual, there is one lite edition which is freeeee!!! :)

New Photoshop Brushes - And Amazed Little Kitten

New Photoshop Brushes – And Amazed Little Kitten

Gang! Before I present you with my new Photoshop brushes, I just have to share this with you:
Here I am, getting ready to finish my work but just can’t keep my eyes of Poofitzah. The level if interest she shows in most trivial things is amazing. I mean, how much fun can one have with a plastic bottle cap? Or a piece of crumpled tinfoil?

Poofitza

Believe me, this little creature is totally amazed by it! She probably believes that plastic bottle caps are the biggest human invention since, like, ever!

The level of excitement she displays after kicking it, the passion involved in chasing it, eyes wide open after the jump and a quick catch! Sometimes I wish I could share her amazement, astonishment and interest in just about anything one can lay their eyes or hands or paws on.

I just love that innocent little creature.

However, in between keeping my eyes on Poofitzah, I managed to prepare a brand new Photoshop brushes set. This time, the theme is – Floral Ornaments so I called it Floral Ornaments – Art Nouveau. It took me a while to finish it, but, as always, that’s why they are of the highest quality…  by the way, here is a short excerpt from one of the emails I receive about my brushes. Thank you guys!

“…Unfortunately, I’ve been burned before when buying brushes–I bought a huge set of brushes that were supposed to be “high-quality, high-resolution” brushes only to find that they were so small they were wothless as a design tool. Not only that, but there were so many stray pixels they couldn’t even be used in small projects without being cleaned up first, which is a tedious process in intricate brushes.

I’ve downloaded your brush set and checked them out in Photoshop. Even at the maximum size of 2500 pixels they are gorgeous–no stray pixels, no jagged edges! I will be back for more…”

These messages mean a lot to me. They represent a proof that I am doing the right thing taking it easy and working slowly in order to keep the standards high. I make all of them in high resolution so you can freely re size them without any fear that they’ll get distorted. I make sure that the brushes I make are helpful. They’re here to help you out with your Photoshop projects, so you can finish them faster while keeping the quality standards of your work – high.
