The Black Axe Masking Tutorial

I really can’t say enough about the peeps at the Black Axe and their design prowess. They just created a short video tutorial on a lesser known but extremely effective trick in Illustrator. It covers how to use masking and transparency so you can achieve more depth in your design. It is great for giving your art the appearance that it can move fluidly through each layer of the design from front to back.

I for one was very familiar with masking in Photoshop but had not seen a tutorial for this in Illustrator. It was a double whammy since it happens to be about t-shirt design. Way to go fellas, please keep them coming.
