>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

My brother is the owner of a small business and wants to have a logo drawn up for his business (landscaping). What's the going rate for a business logo and would anyone here be interested in doing it?

What's the difference between the X-Height and Capital-Height when the font is only all-uppercase?
>>
>>348903
test
>>
>>348903
Not sure really
But do you mean uppercase alone, or standard capitals + smallcaps lowercase?
also if it's a part of font family, could refer to it
>>
>>348979
All uppercase, like comic fonts tend to do, and they have an alternative glyph on the lower and upper keys. I've examined a few, and the difference is often around 20 between the two measurements.
>>
>>349038
then it's hard to say, but anyway comic fonts are not the pinnacle of typography so I wouldn't care about this. especially if it's a free font

I started with a smaller initial shape, but I was thinking, maybe an elongated shape would be better? I also gave it a few natural toned color options that I thought looked fitting.

Good luck, OP!

I like to separate the two this way.

Graphic Design is visually communicating for someone who can't.
Art is the artist attempting to communicate.his own ideas.

was actually just having this convo w SO.

i think the ones in the GD field are the ones who arent pretentious and figure they should apply the real skills they have.

the pretentious ones are the ppl still doing 'real art' 5 years after going nowhere

Do you know how to code on javascript, wordpress or html5, do you think this skill is part of being a graphic designer? Also, wich country are you from?
>>
>>349014
>descarga.png
those are only necessary if you want to be a web dev, graphic design is too broad usually you'll nyche down to one or two areas of design like branding/logos and lettering although graphic design is mostly about typography.

>>
>>348870
first separate the background from the figure then cut or separate the body parts in different layers then enlarge or reduce the size of whatever you want (you might also want to use transform tools) and finally blend the edges.
if you don't know anything about photoshop search for tutorials on selections, masks, content aware, healing brush, stamp tool.
also using a high-res photo will save you a lot of time.
>>
>>348874
i know PS and your instruction seems sporadic and vague

keeping each layer smart in good advice here

do you see whats strange about the way this was done?

First, get a time machine and go back in time to nine months before you were born.
Second, sprinkle plutonium dust in your dad's boxers. Irradiate those testicles till they glow.
Third, put industrial waste chemicals into your mom's tea. Dioxins, PCBs or a random mix from industrial runoff.
Fourth, return to the present time. Your body will now be changed into a fun grab-bag of miscellaneous parts. Enjoy!
