How far would I realistically go with using a mouse? I'm just starting off and from my tests it turns out that I'm more precise with a mouse than a graphics tablet. I play osu a lot and my mouse accuracy is pretty good, I have 0 acceleration, using a fingertip grip which is the most precise and can program an additional button to slow the cursor down when I hold it.
If I switch to using a graphics tablet now will I have an advantage in lets say 3 years than if I'd keep using the mouse?

IMO graphics tablet is only good for drawing
>>
>>334460
then you probably haven't tried it for photo retouching, 3d sculpting or as mouse replacement.
>>
>>333453
depends on what you are doing
>>
>>333453
In short, for drawing and /ic/ stuff you better get a tablet. For actual design, and also editing, simple vector art and such, getting a tablet from the get go is overkill. Plenty people use just mouse and are completely happy with it.
In any case, if you're starting out design, mouse is more than enough. You should think of reaching the ceiling when you actually have skills and develop working speed.
>>
Do whatever the fuck feels right. If you’re a god damn wizard with a mouse use a damn mouse. There’s no rules for this shit.

I'm working on an album cover for a band. I'm experimenting with textures and grains because i wanted the album cover to look sort of like an old band t-shirt mixed with an ancient scroll of some kind. Thoughts?

If you want a distressed look, I think you need to get rid of sharp clean edges. Make dents and cracks in it to make it look realistic. There's 'roughen' in Illustrator, and I know GIMP has a surprisingly good tool for this purpose. Some manual touch like >>334510 shows is good too, but I don't know why he left the edges untouched.

I'm almost 25 and miss my phpbbses surrounding CS 1.6, SA-MP and such. Where you put stupid gifs or eyecancer photoshop banners in signatures, had a tiny avatar and a username which were all that identified you. Was cozy. Very cozy when enthusiastically playing gayman with your close, cryptically named internet friends on servers the admins hosted. Just an interests group, no for-profit IRL data-collection *Cuckcord* or any bs like that.

Bullied in school cuz 'tism therefore socially isolated from that real world, so different sensibility.

Life in run-down university dorms anarchy was kind of melancholic and fun tho. Future liver-failures chugging down the shittiest 'beer' all around in a thick cloud of cigarette smoke listening to a dude playing guitar. Not giving a fuck and smoking the green while cooking in kitchen. Was in relationship with one immaturely stupid and weird, yet above average IQ Russian girl. Bedbugs. Bedbugs everywhere. Good times.

i saw something like this on an android app i just d/l'd (its a cross between photoshop/pivot/messenger).
download it and open a contact and then click on the blue "R" icon above the text field at the bottom

there are plenty of typographical settings that will generate cool text effects you are looking for

obv. its just a spiral with some more "light" in the front and less in the back
So simply use brighter colours in the front and darker in the back, also transparency

Make a smoke brush on photoshop. Then use that smoke brush to make more smoke brushes and smoke erasers. Smoke erry day

>>333876
Light a cigarette, take a picture of the smoke against a white background, crop background, alter color of smoke in Photoshop, tada.

I dig the pastel vibes, the blue there is more complementary to the orange id agree.
>>
>>333771
I think that's a good direction to move in with regards to the colors.

I've got issues with the lines coming out of the bottles.

First of all, I don't like the way the curl around at the end. It looks too clean, generic, corporate - like the patreon logo and fucking tons of others. At the very least, don't have the big brown circle in the middle; keep a constant radius and fill the middle with your background color. It'd be much better IMO if it continued on the other side of the vertical - like it was going into the head - and sort of tapered or faded out.

Also, the 90° kink in the blue line looks like shit; it doesn't appear to maintain a constant thickness/radius.

/ic/ i've never used this board but it looks as good a place as any for advice.

I made this video for titanfall, i think i did an excellent job timing the clips to the pulse pounding trance song, but no one gives a shit to give any advice, then again i think of how many times i comment on videos which is literally never.

(Never played Titanfall) Honestly, I don't like the song. The music mixed okay with the clips, but I didn't feel an impact to it. It was a bit monotonous for me. The actual gameplay looked cool though. Maybe add sections with in-game audio , then switch to the music, or with both.

As someone who doesn't play TF, the video looked too monotonous. You gotta make it look like you put a lot more effort into it.

you could literally mix any clips to this music, it's no big thing especially wanting praised lol, now lets talk about me getting the time back i spent watching that crap

Well I mean it could be /gd/ right? I'm not OP but maybe he's trying to get into package design.

In all honesty OP, what you're talking about is just simple geometry. Notice how those triangles are in a pentagonal alignment.

If you're interested in designing some papercraft layouts or packages, it's basically all 3D geometry.

I really want this to be a puzzle that can be taken apart like 'burr', and worn.
Because this is going to turn into a DIY project soon, I am not really certain on every step I should take to ensure a high net gain of my time. For practical reasons I've even considered getting a Mefferts Pyraminx and doing a sticker mod; attaching a hoop on one side to function as a pendant.

But to design this tetrahedron with many dovetail pieces, all equilateral, AND maintain it's cosmetic appearance is something that i'm working at /diy/ and /3d/ any further help or suggestions would be for the best!
>>
>>334321
Ok, fundamental geometry time, that is not a tetrahedron, that is a square pyramid. Difference is that a tetrahedron is a regular polyhedra, also one of the Platonic Solids, that means each face is the exact same size and shape. Also tetra is latin for 4, so why would a 5 sided shape be a tetrahedron?

Furthermore, now that you have revealed that this is not /gd/, I'm sorry kid but you gotta take this elsewhere.
