>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
>>>/r/ is a better idea. /gd/ doesn't take requests or does 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.

I want to recreate this whole thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9ZkJm05XbI

The car, the sprites, the subtle animations, the rolling backgrounds.

Where do I start?
>>
>>215342
for the actual paintings, backgrounds etc, look into HD index painting with krita. It's free and makes painting beautifully dithered backgrounds fairly efficient and easy.

For the animation, well, I hope you have a lot of time and patience at your hands.

You can use something like Natron for baking (free), Adobe AfterEffects for compositing, or blender if you want to go hardcore (free, but harder to use for compositing than AE)

Alternatively compose your animations frame-by-frame in krita or synfig.

Thx mate!

Squiggles and grids pretty trendy right?

Any graphic design trends you've noticed lately?

Any you like, any you dislike?

I like squiggles sometimes, not really into grids.

Let's talk about trends.
>>
>>215367
i actually really like both, little disapointed they've become easily criticised trends
>>
>>215369
how are they easily criticized?
>>
>>215371
because they're very common, so they get more criticism than if they weren't idk, i've seen talk about it from a lot of non graphic designers

I actually like the idea of having a modern "one-size-fits-all" trendy design (like the swiss style in its time) but I don't want to use it myself because it seems too low-effort.

That being said, Im a total sucker for scanned type.

Please give us an opinion here -
does this image raise thoughts of the Nazi party? or rather just of military organisations and pageantry?

Make the wings go up and out instead of just out

I was literally just about to post that image.
>>
>>215433
yep. flat wings are the uniquely nazi element of eagles in heraldry; everyone else has them bend one way or another.
>>
>>214959
everything with eagles does because the Nazi party used it to show allegiance. It was one of their most sacred symbols.

You've just got a bit too much going on. Try making the border a flat colour, choosing some fonts that work better together. Interesting ideas however!

Ahh! 2spoopy!!!!1

tl;dr - Do designers suck or programs conflicting? Ok, I have a small business been doing vector based designs for over 10+ years. The problem that I am having is when I receive files from other designers I have to "convert" their artwork to either simplified vector or 2 color artwork if doing shirts or print. By converting I mean even the simplest designs are trapped behind 2 to 3 clipping masks. Is this a problem with the designers or just a problem with receiving files from other versions of vectors. I have had this happen with all file types that contain vectors. I am currently using CS5.
>>
this happened to us when we were using CS6 and our clients switched to CC, so using CS5 might be the problem.

We also have clients who insist on putting their art behind 1 or more clipping masks.

Could be both
>>
I think they're trying to make it difficult for you to edit so you have to use them every time.

At least that's how I feel about the designer my company tends to hire.
