Christmas is a special holiday. We all want to impress our friends and families by creating something special for them. Sometimes, a unique design is a good present. A custom postcard or a party invitation flyer with your unique design will always look impressive. Drawing an image is challenging, especially if you do not have experience or skills. That is when pre-made visual elements, like a Christmas penguin clip art, become very useful. You may speed up the process by combining various graphic elements. There is nothing wrong with it – professionals also incorporate assets they have made before. It is an option if you do not have much time.
Clip art is a collection of images that will improve your design and make it more detailed. With a set of digital resources, you focus on the general concept instead of small details. You may decide where to place various components, what text to add, and what colors to use.
Clip art may also serve as temporary elements. As an artist, you place them to see how the finished image will look. It helps to visualize the design and decide if it is necessary to change anything. It helps to understand if you need to reposition anything, change colors, scale something up or down, etc. You can replace the temporary elements in the future if you do not like them.
The resources are easy to modify – they are great to achieve the necessary look. It is important because finding a product that meets your requirement perfectly is almost impossible. Sometimes, you need to modify it slightly – change colors, size, add new shapes, and more.
TemplateMonster’s products come with the following features:

It is important to mention that these services have a different payment model:
The difference in payment models will help you save your money. Here is an example. You are an artist who works on multiple projects. To decrease the time you spend on pictures, you add pre-made assets. You decide to buy five packs of templates. The total amount of money you spend on them is $40. You cannot use the same collection of items for too many projects – they will not look unique. It means that you buy new archives eventually. With the subscription, you pay $69/year and download as many items as you want. Please consider visiting the pricing page. You can learn more about different plans and what you get.
If you create a unique design – you may not need many assets. In this case, a single product from the marketplace may be enough.

We also recommend reading the licensing pages (for the marketplace and the subscription service). It helps to avoid any possible issues in the future.
It is tempting to get a digital asset for free. Please consider the following factors before downloading a freebie:
Inspiration is impossible to overestimate. There are many potential sources of ideas for you – illustrations of other artists, cartoons, books, etc. Write down all the ideas that you think are worth attention. Save some images to use them as references in the future. When you get enough data, it is time to come up with a concept. That is the stage when you cross out ideas and delete images that you think won’t work. Now you start creating an illustration.
There are many tutorials available to you, but the general idea is to start with basic shapes. Try to divide an object into simple shapes and avoid adding too many details, especially in the beginning. Keep it very simple.
It is important to note – do not bite off more than you can chew. If it is your first art – do not expect too much and do not try to make it very detailed. It may turn out not as you expected, and there is nothing wrong with it. Keep practicing, and it will become better and better.
There are many differences between raster and vector graphics. The main concepts to keep in mind are:
Usually, clip art is not super detailed, so vector graphics are a good choice.
It is important to find an application that you will use. There are many software packages available. Here are some of the most popular applications:
Developers support the applications and add new features. You will need some time to learn how to use the software. It is not hard to learn basic operations, like adding objects and editing them. They should be enough to customize pre-made assets. Besides knowing how to use applications, you need to know how to work with shapes and colors. It is essential to make an image look balanced with no blank spaces. You should know how to make people focus on certain parts. Relying on your feelings is not the best option.
