Photoshop Design

Hello, I have been trying to find courses where advanced illustrations are achieved like dribbble. Does anybody know of anything where I can follow tutorials and create things like the stuff on 365psd.com. I know that on Treehouse there is a beginners guide to photoshop, but nothing really advanced.

Hey Shiny,

I would recommend going through the [www.lynda.com](www.lynda.com) Illustrator and Photoshop courses.

Search and follow design blogs such as: Abduzeedo, Smashmagazine, .netMagazine and SpoonGraphics

to see what current designers are creating or what's currently trending.

As you keep practicing you will start to develop your own style and creating advance designs/illustrations.

Good luck :-)

Thanks a lot for the websites you have listed above. I will check it out, but to anyone else reading this, more ideas are welcome! Thanks.

I follow this one awesome guy on YouTube, his YouTube name is SinixDesign

He has some awesome work and encourage his viewers to create. He recommends a forum, which I can't remember right now and there are some good books. I have one at home, I can give you the name of it when I get out of class. If I find any other resources at home, I'd love to send you em. I wanted to pursue illustration, but that's a dream after I get a firm foundation in web, so I have a bunch of resources, but I'm in class atm.

There is an Illustrator course on Treehouse.

I have seen that but unfortunately it's for beginners. Thanks anyway...

If you mean illustration like digital painting, you can follow what I posted above.

This website also has tutorials focused on digital painting, if again, that's what you are looking for. The book I mentioned earlier btw is Masters Collection: Volume 1 - Digital Painting Techniques.

Good luck in your journeys

Thanks for your help. Really appriciated... Sorry, I sound a bit demanding but say something similar to: http://dribbble.com/shots/1223286-Flying-Safari?list=popular&offset=1 http://dribbble.com/shots/150509-At-your-service-Sir?list=searches (Just a couple of examples). Thanks anyway.
