Hello, i've been trying to make a design for a ''dice'' for a board game i'm making, the game is for 3 to 10 players and i wanted to make something similar to the picture but i cant get it right ( i mess up the divisions) so can anyone help me by telling me how can i do it on ms paint? or even better do it in a program and post the picture?
more details:

8 concentric circles
1st smallest circle 3 divisions
2nd circle from the center 4 divisions
3rd, 5 divisions
4rth 6 divisions
5th 7 divisions
6th 8 divisions
7th 9 divisions
8th 10 divisions

the 0 circle in the middle has a 2cm radius this will be blank so i can put a bearing ball to spin the arrow

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
when i say divisions i mean fractions
alright so i used a circular angle measuring thingy and divided 360 with the amount of fraction i needed and i managed to do it but i still need it to be from a computer so i can print it and glue it on a wooden board cause my hand drawing is not good enough
use the request board >>>/wsr/ also post the sketch with a good resolution and ask someone to "vector" it.
thanks, ---> >>>/wsr/519656

Yo some logos i did for a cleaning company. Please let me still a WIP. Are any of these good enough to use?

This is just fucking shapes mashed together... It looks like the "work" I did while freelancing for local businesses in high school.

Start on paper, from what you've done I can almost guarantee that you've not even sketched one of these ideas out.
Yeah this
The top left and bottom left look good, but not as cleaning company logos
ok guys thanks for the critique and shit

ive worked on it a bit more and have a few more variations. what do you guys think? are any of these closer?
Better, can actually pass but it's still pretty amateur and rough
some opinions
1) if you draw a house, make the lines straight, not curved.
2) your shapes all look weird and misaligned. number 2 clearly looks off.
3) if you use different colors like in number 3, at least make them more varied. don't choose adjacent hues. you can use Adobe CC Color to pick good color combos.
All in all I've seen worse, but you clearly need learning and training. Draw more on paper, read the materials from the sticky.

Working on a project, and I have been using paint, but that's really not that great.

Meh, if you want to do 3D it's an option. Probably not for beginners. Thanks for the ip however, I'll keep it in mind.
This, Ayupp
if this is the wrong place to ask, is there a general thread on /gd/ for software? didnt want to make a new thread just for this. Since I'm already here and people apparently know inkscape here:
How do I "cut away" from stuff? I want to make this Logo and made the G by cutting away from the circle with a smaller circle and boxes with a white fill, but now I want to make a shadow and the white fill also blocks the shadow.
Also, how could I make a black outline for the entire letters rather than all its individual subparts.
Nevermind, Just found the /tut/ thread via someone else's dumb thread.

I need to design something like a banner for an urban fantasy game but I can't draw for shit
Stumbled upon this awesome tool from 2010 ( https://www.designboom.com/design/umbro-crest-designer/ ) and it looks ridiculously good but it's offline
I cannot git gud at graphic or analogic design
What do I do?
also: http://cargocollective.com/marionaortiz/following/marionaortiz/_Umbro-Crest-Designer
Either invest the time or hire someone.
If it is something for fun or not serious at all then maybe find some decent sportsy crests on sites like freepik, vecteezy etc and modify them to your liking (use adobe illustrator is free for 7 days).

Anyone can draw if they put some effort its often compared to riding a bicycle, logos don't require you to be an expert at drawing a basic sketch even if its messy will suffice.

>Im more of a creative person so I was thinking of doing front end but then I realized back end probably makes more money
That's not true. Look up the stats on Glassdoor, etc. "Senior Frontend Engineer" has killer salary.
most big ad firms don't ask for degrees (never really did)
it's not a very clever way of going about a creative job
That's literally where "acquired taste" comes from.

For more clarification, HTML is basically the backbone of web pages. Always has been, and unless something changes, always will be. It's just that recently, development has shifted away from making HTML by hand to using other languages to generate it for you. A decade ago, a front-end developer didn't really need to know computer science, as HTML and CSS aren't full-fledged coding languages. Now, though, other languages that used to be thought of as nice bonuses (like JavaScript) are becoming more core than either of them.

Back-end developers tend to have higher starting salaries, but once you get some experience under your belt, the pays generally level out. And even then, it's not like proper front-end developers start off making peanuts. You can make bank with either.
Agreed, but don’t change the equation. Keeping things equal: you have a good interview, and you show a great portfolio, then you get asked if you have a degree. You answer “I learned everything I know via online tutorials”. While commendable and maybe even impressive, I think it puts you at a disadvantage vs someone who answers “I have a four year degree from xxx college”.
is there such a thing as a four year graphic design degree?

In a "normal" workflow you have deadlines. Unless you force media encoder to use all the resources of your machine, you can't really rely on it. Its 100 times slower, and thats the point. You can export from AME and work in AE. Since you don't really create long videos in AE (most of the time) its better to just export a high quality video and then just convert it to whatever you want.
just download adobe cc trial and use adobe zii
>In a "normal" workflow you have deadlines
Yes, and unless you are working on a single video, that's why you can't afford to stop working while it renders.

>You can export from AME and work in AE
Sometimes you just have to but it's not the best idea. Adobe's GPU rendering is notoriously buggy so you want to render with CPU-only which makes working in parallel to the render not the nicest experience. It all depends on what you are rendering but even simple things like adjustment layers with Lumetri color can create CPU bottlenecks and freeze/crash Ae/Pr.
I rather work comfortably and render when I'm done working for the day.

> its better to just export a high quality video and then just convert it to whatever you want
This is standard practice when you have to deliver the video in different formats (for example, different TV networks will want different type of files). You render a Master file in ProRes422HQ and save rendering time by converting said Master to the different Traffic files. But even then, it's not something I'll be doing while working but at the end of the day.
Not sure if it has anything to do with it but my only problems with AME where when the versions of it and Premiere/Ae were different.

CraZe https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zubieta.craze
is an application that allows you to create colorful and psychedelic drawings with lots of brushes (line based or geometrical shapes), rotations/symmetry (the good old linear algebra transformations to rotate stuff with matrices), effects (rotating, scaling, connecting, fitting to a grid, filling a shape, etc, transformations applied to those brushes which multiple effects can be added to generate composited effects), palettes (either the usual manually pick your RGB color, or a set predefined palettes which will change color automatically while you draw in a defined spectrum of variance), adjustable brush transparency, Porter-Duff modes, etc.

You can see some of the sample images I've created with it in https://www.instagram.com/crazeapp/ and the work of other people by searching by the hashtag #crazeapp https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/crazeapp/

Growth has been healthy for a while (200k downloads in like 5 years but mostly nonupdated for 4 years) but also complaints started accumulating through the years (having been made originally for Android 2.0~4.0 made it break a bit in recent OS versions and look ugly) so I started it from scratch this year with modern APIs and looking to support as much devices as possible.

Another example of the "Radiant" with the super old alpha desktop version, back then it had no antialiasing so looked rough, the fit to grid and the connect vertices effects also apply to this brush, so you can see that the points you move to are connected too, which makes it look like a seashell.

Also without rotations, just showcasing some effects
1. regular brush called "Vertical Lines"
2. to that same brush, apply the variable size effect (varies between 1/2 and 3/2 of the input size in settings)
3. to that same brush apply the connect vertices effect (so every point will be connected to the previous point in the same shape)
4. to that same brush, apply the rotating shape effect, so the shape (whatever it is) will rotate on its on center

And these effects can be applied to cross, square, triangle, circles, hexagons, and all other brushes since they are generalized methods to work on arbitrary shapes.

I got comissioned to redesign the logo for a fire protection company (they want to stick with the original flame idea their old logo has).

I came up with this, but then I realised its very similar to something, but I cant find out what it is. First I thought its java, but it wasnt, can you tell me?

Its a rough draft, not aligned properly or cleaned.

Thanks to all of you though.

Personal logos, show yours off?

You'll have to learn to take criticisms now if you want a chance in the field. Graphic design is based on fundamentals, and this board is for graphic design. Notice how no professional, well known and respected logos look like yours do. That's not an insult, compare and you'll see. Do some research on design before coming to a graphic design board for critique. Everybody is going to say the same thing, I promise you that.
You should take the bg off that image and just have it transparent.
See what you can do with straighter lines off the sides of the building instead of those curvy thorny looking points. As is they look too plantlike instead of architectural and it suggests danger. Everything else is nice and well composed.

Actually, the whole point of the plant look is that its meant to represent a native grass bush that grows in the area and is quite iconic of this university in particular. I won't bore you with the design development but that was a major part of it.

This is their actual logo, try and hold in your vomit.
