I bet you've already seen a bunch of websites where you scroll down a lot, making the elements move. I find such ideas really fun and entertaining, so I've made a long scrolling background for such kind of website, using Adobe Illustrator​!
I'll be collaborating with one of our awesome designers from Envato Tuts+​ to make it work.

Here is my part of the tutorial, teaching how to design such background. Stay tuned for the second part, where it will be turned into a working website!

I like BB-8 from the new Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens so much that I even wanted to purchased its collectible from the Disney website. However, I’m such a tightwad that I’d rather draw it myself for free :D

So here’s my short speedpainting video of making the BB-8 astromech droid in Adobe Illustrator.

Be inspired & may the Force be with you!
