Get inspired with illustrators timelapses!
Have you got creative block? Do you need inspiration but are bored of your usual sources? When Pinterest and Behance don’t give me the inspiration I need, Vimeo and YouTube does. There are a few designers out there that share snippets of their process in video format. These design timelapses are incredible to watch. Sometimes you’ll see the whole process (if you’re lucky). But even if it’s just a short clip I personally feel like I’m ready to try something new.
Today’s showcase of design timelapses are very detailed. Even with the speed being quick you’ll be surprised just how much you absorb. You’ll see a lot of layers in Photoshop and a lot of pen tool action in Illustrator, as these designers create illustrations full of shading and depth.
Though design timelapses inspire me they do make me envious of other people’s talent and craft. If I could draw like some of these people who knows where I’d be and the type of clients I’d have the honour of working with. Despite this, you have to look at other people’s talents as a blessing. These people have worked on their craft and they too are probably critical of their own work – it’s a designers prerogative to hate everything we design.
So when you next need some inspiration check out the timelapses below. Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two, or maybe it’ll give you the push you need to get out of your creative rut.
