So, I suck at Pixel Art, and I need pixel art for a game. How does one find pixel artists worth a damn? I see all these pixel graphic games with amazing art, but I look for pixel artists and find 12 year old brazilian kids making weird looking lions n shit.

tl;dr how do I find pixel artists.

Pic related, it's my failed attempt at making pixel art. (I cant draw to begin with, so there's that.)

got you senpai
check the portofolios section here https://forums.tigsource.com/ (as trivia this is the forum where notch had a small devlog for minecraft like almost 10 years ago)
and http://pixeljoint.com/ where there are many incredible artists
>>
>>350827
Thanks bud. I checked into the two sites. One I had already found, the Pixeljoint one. I gave it a better look-over and found a couple decent artists. But the other one, Tigsource, that's a good site, I'll be trying to utilize it quite a bit. Good looking out.

Where or how can I make my own website without having to rely on tools or anything?

I'm trying WordPress and it's complicated.

WordPress can be a bit intimidating but it's not that tough even if you don't have coding knowledge. You can try using free themes and see if it suites you or you can pay for a theme and get a website design suited to your needs.
Wix is also a decent option and much more easier than WordPress. But it's a bit more expensive. But the drag and drop builder of wix is really fun to play around with.
You can try other options as well like squarespace and stuff.

So... what do you recommend me the most?

Forget Wix, WordPress and coding, it's gonna sound either weird or dumb, but can I use Tumblr, instead?
>>
>>350824
Try Webflow. It's free to test it.

I think I actually redeemed myself on using Wix because I wasn't a fan of the templates but I noticed there are blank templates, there's even one where I can start from scratch and I think that's a lifesaver for me.

What happened to the Discord that /gd/ had? I met some of the most helpful people on that place. I got swamped with life stuff and I stopped being active as much, but then when I went to go look. The server was gone...

it's ok for what it is. at least there's an icon, it looks kinda South American, and together with the wordmark it makes a whole.
but, the font is outdated in a bad way, looks kinda like Neuland—a weird choice which I can only hope means something in the context.
if you change the font though, it's p. good. A little bit bland but i've seen way worse

What’s your take on more complex logos? This is a good example of what I’m sort of talking about... I think it looks classy.

Who did Cortez's marketing/branding? Seems pretty high-tier, akin to Hillary's "With Her" created by Pentagram. This question is entirely industry related--not about politics.

Marketing today means spamming. That's it. Whoever has the most money to waste on ads on every single channel both digital and analog wins, regardless of what they're advertising. In the SaaS world the dominant one doesn't even have the best features most of the time.

Fair enough, but spamming a polished political logo is far more effective than a dogshit one. Again, clearly, some money behind hers, even though it was a "no name" agency.

Looking at making a logo for an R&D company. What are some good font alternatives for Trajan? Sure, it looks decent I guess, but it's insanely overused.

Desired connotations include "seriousness, clarity, structure". Almost the kind of concepts you would have a law firm ask for. Alegreya SC is fine, but a tad bit too plain. Someone suggested Gotham but it's all too "normal" and uninteresting.

The logo is gonna go on documents, websites, signs, desktop wallpapers, and business cards. Probably looking for something Serif, Roman, and with an open license.
Any ideas?

>open license
ya blew it, luxury comes at a premium, fonts aren't even expensive

>>350799
Luxury isn't really asked for. Cost isn't the issue... Their software projects are almost exclusively open source, and created through open source, and I think they want to go the same route here.

Do you have the reason
>>
>>348318
Fuck you.

>>350765

Optics.

The human eye/mind doesn't appreciate absolute perfection.

You'll find that when you get a real job and your autism demands everything be pixel perfect to within half a micron, the client will say it 'looks funny'.

We have serif type for a reason. It's not just a funny style to add a bit of spice and make things look olde worlde. Our eyes process things in certain ways. Serifs are easier to read in bulk copy. Imperfections in geometry are more comfortable to look at.

Stop trying to be right and just accept it. There's plenty of essays out there on it, it's the kind of shit you skim in college.

you goddamn idiot, there are correct answers all over the thread
>the circular shape was optically refined to prevent a visual “overbite” at the point where the circular form meets the crossbar.

Reminds me of low-poly art. One of my favorite styles.

I like it. I would have the bottom left, dark brown shape's left side have the same angle as its right side though or at least more of that degree, and I would position the sun a little further to the right to show a little bit more of it on the right side of the towering rock figure. Good colors, and this style has interested me quite a bit for some time.

Low poly is a genre, yes, but it's also shorthand for the art style shown in OP and the post you responded to.

So, right away, I'm sorry for my poor English, I'm not native English speaker, as you might have already guessed.
Here's the thing: I have to make some kind of poster for my faculty. My mentor loves this kind of swirly background (it's just background, without any elements and details), but I simply can't pick right color scheme (obviously, it has to be colorful). So, i ask you, anons, for some advice.
