  1. very creative. it gives whatever message your sending more emphasis.

  2. Does anyone know a good tutorial to make these types of aeroplane, because i find it hard to make the aeroplane look at an angle?

    • So this is what it’s come to? I do have to agree it looks awesome though!

      For tuts I haven’t seen many around. Illustrator is very tricky when it comes to shadows and angles.
