Bert continues his magazine-cover tutorial series this week by focusing on how he created a softly lit lamp within the scene using Illustrator and Photoshop.
He begins in Adobe llustrator, creating a vector outline for the lamp. Once the basic outline has been completed, he pastes the resulting paths into Photoshop to add depth, relief, and texture to the lamp. After adding some layer effects to flesh out the base, he finishes by adding a texture to the shade, and a glowing light underneath it for a final touch of realism.
