Comparing Photography and Digital Art

It’s a strange idea, I know, to compare photographs with illustrations, but I had the idea and ran with it, and this article is the end result!

I have tried to find photographs and illustrations with similar or identical themes. Of course, the illustrator has a freer hand – anything they choose can be included in the illustration, whereas the photographer has to either set up the shot or take opportunistic shots which are not flexible in terms of content.

Here are 10 photographs with 10 corresponding illustrations – see what you think!

Welcome to Graphix1

Welcome MessageWelcome to Graphix1 – the new and exciting blog that will eventually replace Graphics Tutorials.

This has been thought about, talked about, started, shelved and started again for quite some time now, so it is exciting to finally have it up and running!

I will be bringing you unique tutorials, mainly at beginner level, and mainly using Adobe Photoshop.

There will also be a steady stream of free downloads, ie: gradient sets, textures, patterns, etc. designed to enhance your projects and elevate your knowledge of Photoshop.

I will be posting a weekly collection of inspiration gathered from around the internet, to show you what the professionals are doing, what is going on with the trends in the world of design and examples of art that is either downright clever or very eye-catching.

I hope you enjoy this new venture as much as I know I will. Please feel free to comment on anything.
