>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

awesome balance and repetition of geometric elements. i think the bullet point O and the line above 'philolaus' take away from the comp, otherwise love
>>316888
great colours, awesome aesthetic. i'd say pick one 'message'. seems like the picture, 'thuraya', and the 'tactics orgre' are all different styles with different feelings. commit to one.
>>316898
fantastic hierarchy, really nailed the tone and feel with your typefaces. i think lose the outer glow, it cheapens your work.
>>317013
very sweet and light, i feel like i already know what that sounds like.
>>317256
nice colours and typeface choices. seems visually cluttered with that image, the different typefaces, type treatments, and alignments. simplify it to make it stronger.
>>317257
awesome. if your intention was a folky mediterranean sound, you've nailed that
>>317259
nice typeface but maybe it's competing too much with the image? I'm already getting angular vibes, no need to double down. great hierarchy and cool treatment.

I fucking SUCK at drawing. I know how to work photoshop and illustrator but I can't fucking draw and it really hinders my ability to use illustrator more professionally. What do?
>>
>>317241
Stop drawing what you know and draw what you see.

Do it a lot. Like a lot a lot. More than you think is necessary.
>>
>>317243
I'm not really following by what you imply
>>
>>317244
So, for example, you want to draw a hand. Don't draw what you think a hand looks like. Don't take those mental shortcuts. Draw the shadows and highlights, the weird way skin wrinkles, everything you SEE not KNOW.

Then practice a ton.
