To bring inspiration to life shouldn’t be difficult
As an artist I find inspiration everywhere. Because we’re in the 21st century I don’t need to put my inspiration on hold because I’m away from my easel or computer. Now I can create from ANYWHERE at ANY TIME.
I love everything about Autumn. Inspiration is everywhere, in colors, in fresh air, in pumpkin flavor. So I feel that I need to create more and thanks to Adobe mobile apps I can create my art using my mobile devices.
Today I will share with you my Autumn collection I created using Adobe Illustrator Draw, iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Where did the inspiration come from? From my yard where I am playing with my puppy, from the trees around the fence, from the fresh and beautiful colors of the sky.
Using Adobe Illustrator Draw I created a pumpkin. I spent probably about 20 minutes and my pumpkin was ready. Because I liked that pumpkin so much I decided to create another one.
Later on I was sitting outside with my puppy and our trees are already ready for the fall season so I decided to create another Halloween Art using Adobe Illustrator Draw, iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I used the trees as an inspiration and created Halloween Village Art.
Using the same trees as inspiration I created a few leaves in Adobe Illustrator Draw, imported those files to Adobe Illustrator CC and created my new brushes out of those leaves. And now I can create any Fall art using my custom brushes.
The purpose of this post is to bring your inspiration to life. Don’t wait for the “perfect” time to create art. Whatever the inspiration is you will find it. You are able to bring it to life using your mobile devices and Adobe mobile apps. Don’t procrastinate…just do it…just create art anywhere at any time!
P.S. I uploaded all of my mobile Autumn Art to Adobe Stock and all files were approved for sale. Literally in 7 minutes after my files were approved, I received an email that I made a sale!!! Guess which file was sold??? My pumpkin!

More and more people are using mobile apps to do real work. Mobile apps on our mobile devices give us the freedom of creativity on the go. These three tips will help you to bring your creativity to the next level.
1: Bring your project created in another Adobe Mobile app as an image layer to your current Adobe Mobile App. This will help you to jump between Adobe Mobile Apps when working on the same project.
2: In Adobe Comp CC you can select a few objects to apply same effect at the same time Shift (tap and hold) + Tap. Applying the same effect at the same time to multiple objects will guarantee identical effects will be applied to multiple objects and plus it will speed up your workflow.
3: In Adobe Lightroom mobile use DNG raw when you shoot using the Lightroom camera. Shooting DNG gives you an uncompressed file. DNG file = raw file
The most beautiful advantage of digital imaging is ability do apply changes in non destructive way. And we users are very appreciative and happy to see more and more non destructive options in our workflow. The Crop tool is one of them. Now I can crop any document anyway that I want to, in a NON DESTRUCTIVE way! How? it’s easy as one click.
√ Uncheck “Delete Cropped Pixels”
∴ Extra Tip ∴ To make sure that your image inside the cropping area is alined straight or you want to rotate this area simply click on “Straighten”

Three of my favorite (along with many others 🙂 ) options to speed up my workflow in Adobe Photoshop CC.
1: Show “Start” Workspace When No Documents Are Open
Using this option I can access my Libraries, Presets, and open my Recent Files in no time. It’s quick and easy.
If for some reason you don’t need or want to have “Start” Workspace you can uncheck ” Show “Start” Workspace When No Documents Are Open” : PREFERENCES > GENERAL
2: Recent Files in “Start” Workspace
I can open my recent files with just in one click! No more asking myself ” What was the file I was working on yesterday or the day before yesterday? And what did I name it and and where did I save it?
If for some reason you don’t need or want to have “Recent Files” you can uncheck ” Show “Recent Files” Workspace When Opening a File” : PREFERENCES > GENERAL
3: Always Create Smart Objets when Placing
Using this option I don’t worry any more about remembering to convert my layer to a Smart Object to avoid loosing my layer’s image quality because of resizing my image size down/up.
