I've gotten annoyed with trying to find miniature box patterns on the net that were vector based. I've looked, there doesn't seem to be any. So I decided to make my own and designed them as Adobe Illustrator symbols. In this file there are patterns for a hat box, donut box, pastery box, envelope, take-out box, and a shopping bag.
I have not yet tried to make all of them, but the bag, pastery box, and take-out box turned out well. Please note that the take-out box won't latch closed, also note that glue sticks, tweezers, and toothpicks are your friends should anyone try to make these boxes. The patterns were attained from this site [link] they were grainy jpegs and the patterns on the boxes/bags/envelopes weren't easy to make out, as such I borrowed the lines. There are also some swatches in this file so it is a two for one deal.
To use this file in either the symbol or the swatch category you go to "my computer" enter "Programs" "Adobe" "Illustrator" "presets" and then pick either the swatches or symbols folder (this file should work for either one). Hope this helps someone. Enjoy!
We were recently asked to create a Photoshop illustration process tutorial for PSD Tuts+ based on Blizzard Entertainment's insanely large and addictive game, the World of Warcraft.
At the risk of polarizing our audience, although we've played numerous Alliance based characters, Sarah and I always had a soft spot for the Horde; the Undead quests were always much funnier! So naturally we chose to illustrate some of our personal favourite characters from the Horde side of the game including a Sporeling, Sylvanas Windrunner, Arthas, a Tuskarr and the Head of the Headless Horseman (don't ask, just trust me that he was funny!) and of course the World of Warcraft figurehead, the dreaded Murloc!
You can read the tutorial at PSD Tuts+ here
Have fun, David
