Over the past two years, I've been exploring, testing and using
HYBRID illustration styles with my photos to demonstrate just what's possible using simple photos and easy-to-use software. I've found some duds to avoid and some programs that left me stunned by the art power they wield.
In the latest training for the “Hybrid” series, “Hybrid Illustration Styles, Vol. 5,” we dive into the deep end once again with 11 web-based and desktop programs!
This time, we focus SOLELY on our options to convert photographs into VECTORS!
I was honestly SHOCKED at the results
as I began to research and experiment with some of this software. A few of the programs I had heard of, but several were new to me (well, not anymore). Every time...just when I think I've discovered ALL the best software illustration options available to us, I uncover new software and techniques even MORE crazy cool
than some of the ones I've previously shared.
Here are examples from the training that demonstrate the creative power available for generating vector graphics...and MOST of the apps offer MANY variations and variables! Some of these illustration styles simply are NOT reproducible using ANY other software option!
