We are going to handpick some of the best tutorials out there and share them here, along with our own result: if we can do it, so can you!

A lot of tutorials on the internet are outdated, the working files links are going missing, some are just impossible to follow: our goal here is to select the best up to date tutorials, that are clear and easy to follow.

We will also be publishing our own tutorials soon!

Our tutorial this week comes from the excellent website digitalartsonline.co.uk and James Davies shows you how to create a half-tone vintage dino poster.

DON’T FORGET: If a tutorial is too hard, don’t give up and read it until the end, even if it’s above your skill level. You will learn about new techniques you didn’t know existed and you’ll come back to it later. Sometimes, it takes a couple of times to get it right.
