Angle - 140 devices & mockups for sketch

I've become a fan of Sketch since I started using. I was an orphan of Fireworks and Sketch filled the void beautifully well with a great vector software for interface design. There are a lot of things to love about Sketch, like artboards, shadows like in CSS, fully vector and many more. One thing I always missed was ways to add perspective. That was solved through a great plugin called Magic Mirror. Now the awesome Meng To put together an incredible set of device mockups for Sketch, all vectors.

Sketch 3 - Giveaway

Sketch 3: 5 Licenses Giveaway - Winners

I have been an Adobe user since I can remember, adopting the new tools always coming and going. Macromedia back in the day tried to challenge Adobe's supremacy and ended up being acquired by them. Now there's a new tool in the market that I have fallen in love with and that app is called Sketch. I have been using Sketch for over a year, at work at Google and for personal projects and I simply love it. Sketch is a vector tool that does an impeccable job of combining the best of all worlds when it comes to designing mobile apps and web sites. You must check it out. The new version os Sketch brings some very important new features. The most important I believe is the possibility of creating symbols. Below we list some of the features: Precision: Vectors mean scalability. Sketch's Vector shapes easily adapt to changing styles, sizes and layouts, allowing you to avoid a lot of painful hand-tweaking. Objects: In Sketch, every shape you create is an item in the Layers List. No more hidden paths. Snap to Pixel: Sketch rounds a shape or layer to its nearest pixel edge. No more half pixels, dirty shapes and alpha-blended messes Pixel Zoom: See everything in the fullest detail, or turn on Pixel View to inspect the resulting pixels. It’s the best of both worlds. Beautiful Text: Sketch’s perfect native text rendering shows your text exactly as it will appear in your app or on your website. Symbols: Symbols are groups of elements you can copy and paste throughout your documents. Change one, and all of them will change automatically. iOS Mirror With Sketch Mirror, you can preview your designs on your iOS devices while you work on them, making it the perfect companion for Sketch.

The Sketch of a Life

Awesome project by French designer Sébastien Del Grosso where he illustrate in sketches the major stages of his life. Take a look, get inspired and try it yourself! For more from Sébastien Del Grosso visit behance.net/s-d-g. Since my childhood, drawing has always been a passion, but when I discovered photography, I thought that the combination of these two passions could afford to give free rein to my imagination. In this series "The sketch of a life" (The sketch of a life), I wanted to illustrate the major stages of my life, like my sketches had given birth to reality. In the prelude to this new series, I propose a self portrait

Sketch Collection by Marcelo Shultz

Sketch Collection by Marcelo Shultz

We have featured Marcelo Shultz a few times on Abduzeedo and it seems that it's becoming a trend. That's because he never ceases to inspire us with his illustrations and amazing work. This time we will share some super cool sketches from this Behance entry titled The Sketch Collection Vol. o2. Since I was a kid I spent many hours a day drawing, and I would always keep a sheet of blank paper and some pencils with me. I think sketching is one of the most important steps in the creation of an artwork, it is where you are able to keep your ideas alive. I make a number of sketches when I'm creating an original piece, I then fuse a number of ideas from the sketches to create one final sketch... Nowadays many artists create everything directly on the computer. I don't think it is wrong, but it may cause the work to lose the 'spark' if it wasn't first conceptualized in sketch form.

When it comes to skills, it's quite clear that some people have mastered the control over their hands. It's not that I don't have control over mine, but very few people have enough precision to make sketches such as these. The talented artist here, Vince Low, really knows how to do fantastic, rough sketches. These don't need to be finalized or painted at all to be remarkable, and that's the beauty of it. If you liked these, you should really check his portfolio at Behance for more of his work. He'll definitely appreciate it! Cheers. ;) Morgan Freeman Will Smith Johnny Depp Jack Nicholson Samuel L.

Black-White Pencil Illustrations by Mall Licudine

Black-White Pencil Illustrations by Mall Licudine

When you think about illustrations, most of the times you might picture in your head a super colorful image. But not always a colorful illustration will be the prettiest... pencil illustrations can also be rich in beauty and details. But in both cases, black-white or colored illustrations, the beauty will depend on the artist's skills, and here you can see some beautiful pieces by talented artist Mall Licudine, from the Philippines. Although she also makes colored pieces, I must say that I really enjoy her black-white artworks. But these are only a few of them... so please, check out her portfolio for more! She'll definitely enjoy your visit. I hope you like it. Cheers! ;)

I just can't get enough of sketches. I got my own sketchbooks but I don't get to fill them as much as I wanted, but I sure love to see people who take their sketchbooks seriously and make delicious art in it.
