Color palette is ugly, really uninspired art, font is jarring, there's no personality or professionalism to it.
I see the basketball and the tennis ball but what's the bottom one
its disgusting faggot.
I don't like it, sorry.
looks like you just picked up photoshop and tried making something without watching any tutorials

its bad, practice more

I am raising funds to support my education. Will i be able to get any traffic or buyers from here? I hope someone would be able to help
the word traffic tells me this IS your job

also fuck off

what tools do you guys use? i assume that everyone here draws out ideas before going digital. pencil and paper usually do a fantastic job there, but what im interested in knowing is how /gd/ creates graphics. do you use a mouse and keyboard or do you use a drawing tablet? both? what software do you use? how do you best leverage your tools/software to get the most out of your work?

almost everyone in photography and in the 3d industry uses a tablet instead of a mouse nowadays.

btw anyone know if high sierra breaks the driver on it or not?
You're fucking retarded. You mean a lot of texture artists use them for 3D. Not a CAD related tool, I work in Solidworks and Rhinoceros at the moment. Also I was paid as a photographer for the past 10 years until very recently and do not know one person that is paid for their photography that uses a tablet for more than a couple minutes a month. Not ONE. This also includes a studio that deals in 3D and producing for TV. I've probably seen 3 people out of a couple hundred out of all 3 industries use a tablet successfully in their workflow and not just have one as a fun gadget that has practical use every oce in a while.

This shit is definitely not in your average Photographer/ Engineer / CAD work flow. I agree if I modeled in polygons and sat around making textures for more time than the modeling took. Sure. I'd get a tablet. That or making comics / illustrations are the only every day use for this shit.
Why so mad? People are allowed to prefer using tablets even for simple tasks that can be achieved with a mouse. Who cares?

say I have 20 icon like custom shapes which I would like to place alongside a custom curved path in the same way you would fit a text along path
I know how to repeat a shape or how to blend two along the path but what about set of custom ones?

how do you do this in Illustrator?
maybe just make a pattern
hoestly, I am almost considering just making a custom dingbats font and just doing it that way since the pictograms are monochrome ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

still would like to know how to do it with any collection of shapes/paths
Google for "type one a path"; it's the first result.
read what \i said, I dont want to do it with text/font

Anyone know how to achieve this effect on a picture, or can link me to a video that shows how to do it?

i think he's refering to the portrait silhouettes thing, and it could be made on photoshop combining the threshold and posterize + tweaking or maybe some type of dithering
Yeah that's what I meant, thanks
ye i agree, maybe not polarize tho, just a grey/silver layer clipped might work, there is quite a few ways to go about this

but on this pic that bit is the most amateurish and probably the easiest to do (better)
>presuming that all design was done on a computer
it was probably screen printed and scanned back in
honestly just B&W the image, then adjust levels until it looks like that... maybe add some noise over the top if you want it grainy

Alright so over at /p/ we do this yearly compilation of photos by the anons and trips. Instead of the slate gray and/or black cover I decided to switch it up. What do you guys think of this design? Give your takes on it, I can provide the original .psd file if needed.

Finally someone who got the reference
Not that guy, but if it takes that long to get the reference, to the rest of people, it just looks kind of odd. Not the worst, but unless you plan on calling each edition a name like "good beginning", I would avoid titles.

Also, gonna buy either way. I haven't been to /p/ in a while.
Please capitalise the correct words properly, or don't even try to do camel case.

It's a boring cover regardless.
We do actually, title and subtitle as in this design. I mean I knew it would take a while for someone to catch it, but seems fitting.

I've been doing design/digital art or whatever category my work falls under for about five months now, and I thought this turned out pretty cool. I want to see more as well.

Any tips?
go to lainchan
I like it but cant give any tips because im a beginner
>no anti aliasing of type
> contrast issues for the "it's almost like I'm watching..."
>PS threshold effect

This would look better with some colour (even dark colours) and maybe vectoring the image instead (even just abstractly) unless you're trying to achieve some specific photographic effect?

It's too dark overall meaning the shapes aren't distinguishable. It's a nice compositions overall but how it has been achieved is a bit amateur.
Just a bit amateur lol

thoughts on this?
Nice spin on Soviet propaganda without directly referencing any of its themes. I like it.
what's up with the ball map? It is out of proportion
looks more like a Soviet textbook than Soviet propaganda
To much blur on the font but I like it
The text is too small for the composition and the text is probably the most important thing about the poster. Consider the visual hierarchy.

The logos look bad and the composition isn't well thought out.

The artwork is lovely though.

Hello, long time listener, first time caller. I've had some decent success with local ads, posters, auto graphics, etc. Recently. I thought of starting a small business selling t-shirts. My main customers have been motorsports related. Anyone tried this? Any thoughts? Anyone give a damn? Whats the best online resource for printing? Pic somewhat related, It took 5 min. just to give an idea of a design. Yes, I know it's not perfect. ?? Should I even think of entertaining this idea?

Lately I've been looking for a lot of visual identity related to fake retro imagery (Hotline Miami, Drive, Stranger Things)

So I just came here to ask.

1. Do you like this kind of style? (Y/N and why)

2. Does it have a defined name? I thought it was "Fauxstalgia" but it's only mentioned on Urban dictionary, but that's pretty like it's nothing

Also, I find vaporwave annoying, and the less we get into that, the better

The word you're looking for is >vintage
what i'd consider my personal style, kind of vaporwave-ish, made it on polyvore
Well yes, it's an imitation in any case, but it can be true to the source or it can be distorted and rather shallow. This is why I agree it looks "fake".
Compare this to picrelated, for example. This is a very accurate imitation of an old style.

Yes, this is indeed beautiful imo
A.K.A shit

I want to make a print of this (Banquet of the Amsterdam Civic Guard in Celebration of the Peace of Münster), but I need it to be smaller than if i take the standard 300 pixels = 1 inch.
Does anyone have any advice about how to best downsize the file while losing as little detail as possible?

Still, I'd love some help
In Ps go to image size and make it smaller.
Make sure to resample it using Bicubic Sharper
also make sure it's a smart object so it doesn't lose quality
