Thumbnails for Illustration Friday — 24 Comments

  1. This has made my day. How very kind!! I will be using this very detailed and helpful set of instructions shortly, and I am also going to pay my money and get onto photoshop so that I can try and make the pictures I have ideas for but can’t actually draw. I still haven’t forgotten about the Tessa commission, and will be trying to get through to you shortly. Sadly my computer skills are a little limited so this may take some doing!

  2. Hi, Diane,

    Thanks for the kind words on my “Antiquity’s Art” ACEOs. I’ve “hearted” your shop too (you’re right — Etsians are everywhere!). Your work is great, and I LOVE “Conundrum 1”. Gorgeous!

  3. Diane! Golden Glow is gorgeous! and you are so very sweet to share your tutorial, It means nothing to me, unfortunately ( Waaaay too technical, I’m rubbish on the computer! ) but I know that a lot of people will appreciate the effort that you have gone to.
    You are very kind and generous.

  4. I skip over all the technical stuff and admire Golden Glow instead. Not that I don’t appreciate all the effort you make to teach people how to do these things, but it is wasted on me. Instead, I will just be an admirer of your artwork. I think that is good enough.

    Having said that, I must comment on the fact that you still seem to be a very busy woman, giving tutorials here and doing artwork and God only knows what else you are doing. Please take good care of yourself and don’t do too much.


  5. OMG OMG thank you soooooooooooo much for this!! Some weeks I get the thumbnail right, other weeks I cannot get it less than 12k file size and could never figure out what to do! Thank you for this tutorial!!
