Is there a big mega or torrent or repository of just images with transparency? Like shitloads of them for any possible purpose?

Or even ones in various styles. Anything like this.
>>
>>344164
like what? also for requests go to >>>/wsr/
>>
>>344178

Doesn't really matter specifically. I'm more looking for sheer quantity. I'm planning to make visual novels using public domain clipart and I need transparent images for, presumably, all kindsa shit.

Looks to be this but with a slightly thickened 'M' and amended 'S'.

Lol, filthy casual.

Looks a little bit like futura but I’m probably wayy off.

I used to draw a lot as a kid, but that's the only time I ever got close to visual arts, and it happened on a shitty piece of paper and cheap pencils.
Now I'd really like to draw shits like pic related, but I don't know shit about digital drawing, what to use and do. What software do I use to digitize irl art (like tracing my own shit) effectively, or even do it from scratch on the computer? Are tablets necessary?
>>
>>344131
Most digital artists end up having their own unique process. I would suggest you to look for a few different illustration online video courses to get you started while learning from an expert, try at sites like lynda.com, digital tutors, skillshare, etc. (either pay or pirate) they will teach you basic things that others at youtube don't (although watch youtube tutorials for specific things).

Also first learn about raster vs vector and check out the ups and downs of different software packages there should be a few videos on youtube, from there pick the software you want, depending if you want to pay/pirate or use a free alternative theres of what you think could be more comfortable for you.

for vector one of these - adobe illustrator, inkscape, coreldraw, or affinity
for raster adobe photoshop or gimp

The process for illustration is usually like this; you draw the sketch on paper (once you're more comfortable you can sketch digitally if you want) then either scan the image or take a good pic with your phone then on photoshop you can either do all the "inking", cleaning or lineart (learn about non destructive workflow) and if you done it right you can bring it to adobe illustrator to vectorize it or depending of your style do it all on photoshop.

After a while you can more or less see what comes to you more naturally to you and developt your own process.

Also check out different illustration process videos on youtube and try to take note about their way of doing things (learning shortcuts is a must and check out useful plugins like lazy nazumi or astute graphics).

So it works like trying to make music? Everyone wants to rip you off and you'll end up having to pay for grossly overpriced courses, software and hardware?
>>
>>344136
>having to pay
what's a torrent?
>>
>>344137
You can't torrent hardware though, and as a musician I know that those are overpriced just as much as softwares. You find yourself having to pay 1000 dollars for a cheap piece of plastic with a primitive ass circuit a 90 years old man with a soviet soldering iron can make
>>
>>344138
not him but what the heck are you on about? you don't need powerful hardware for 2D graphics. everyone uses cracked Adobe tools and they're enough for most stuff. Krita is free even. if you plan to draw illustration, you can get a tablet, but this is more of /ic/ territory than /gd/. but I doubt it's gonna be expensive anyway, expensive ones are for pros who make a living from their ebin skills.

What does /gd/ this of this style?

Oh wow how convenient, skipping over the arguments. Read >>342169 again.
>Still, show me something better.
Again, I don't have to prove anything to you, since you don't read the arguments and don't make yours. And I'll repeat it just for you: commercial success doesn't necessarily mean that something is "good" in design sense. Especially when your auditory is children. You jump to this fallacy over and over again and haven't made a single valid point so far.
>>
So, who knows an easy way to make said style, so we can all enjoy some easy basic bitches of clients?
>>
>>344100
Just look and copy. I've been creating something in this style for the past week and I know literally 0 about illustration. It's illustration made easy because it's just shapes and colors.

My nephew is pretty awesome at drawing/painting in pencil/pen, really talented kid.

He wants to get into graphic design and I was thinking of buying him a stylus/tablet (or whatever it's called these days) so he can get it set up with Krita or whatever else is currently cool.

Any recommendations?

I heard wacom cintiqs were the shit but they're like 700$
>>
>>343369
As the anon above said, cintiqs are amazing but pretty expensive. The jump from paper to digital isn't as easy and smooth as one would expect so maybe you should start with something more affordable (unless you shit money or something). I've been using my trusty Intuos3 for almost 10 years and it still does it's job.
/ic/ might be more helpful though, you can usually find something at >>>/ic/tablet
>>
>>343380
intous touch and pen small like 60$ it good
>>
Get the kid a XP-pen Artist Display 16pro. It's affordable, has good drawing feel to it and is more intuitive to use than drawing tablet.

why /pol/? want to post but it has nothing related with your broad

Do you have to be a good artist to get into graphic design?

(drawing, painting, photo-realism etc.)
>>
>>344035
we have this thread twice every week, truth is you don't need anything other than a computer and internet even 14 year old kids from india will call themselves graphic designers. there's a saying that I think is somewhat accurately "90% of design is typography" meaning you gotta get good with fonts/type and basic design principles none of them refer to art/drawing although depending of what exactly you want to do having a background or knowing art/drawing could be a huge help especially for logos and other graphics.
>>
see >>343334
in a nutshell: I know plenty designers who cant draw for shit. and frankly, knowing the nuances of anatomy and lighting doesn't really help you in design.
but, drawing is not just about that. it also teaches you other things: composition, color, shape, and so on. and these basics are the same in design and are quite important. so being able to draw certainly helps and gives you an intuitive feel of what works and what doesn't.
>>
>>344035
art is much more than just painting or drawing. those are skills which aren't really necesarry, but they do help a lot, imo. like, you technically dont even need photoshop or illustrator and can just use web based alternatives, but its gonna be a rough time.

art is more a way of seeing, deconstructing, and communicating, and graphic design absolutely requires that. you can ignore this and just go into graphic design focusing strictly on design principles, and you'll get competent. but you'll never really be good or make anything interesting.

I want to start sketching designs and logos but I don't have any drawing tools.

What should I buy? Can anyone recommend a good drawing set that includes everything I need?

Also any tips for getting me started?

So, I'm doing a wordpress site for a friend's online shop at the moment, and it's the first time I've used it.
My problem is:
I want to have the Logo change do a different version of itself when hovering over it. I cant seem to find a solution in my theme or in visual composer (which came with the theme) nor any plugin that does that. Even though it seems like the most simple task..

The only one that seemed to do a simple "fade on hover" effect was "Visual Slide Box Builder" but it doesnt get embedded over the Shortcode..

I also tried putting buttons in with background images, but there wasnt any option like that again in any plugin i found or visual composer.

Really need any kind of help on this.
Choosing something different then wordpress is not an option, I know it's frowned upon, but its just a site for my friend, and I'm not a developer..

Thanks
