Where do I get cracked ae plugins now?
Rutracker.org, 1337x.to, all the all-purpose public torrent sites. For the actual Adobe applications there's monkrus.ws, but there's probably no plugins there. Go to reddit r/piracy or some more specifically Adobe plugin focused subreddit and try to find some sites. Basically go googling or use normie sites.

A bit of a long weekend but here it goes:
Yeah, it is a good podcast, I did not expect graphic designers to listen to it too, but it makes sense. This is the episode in question: https://open.spotify.com/episode/4QnDG5NvYA7O5PWNfa9LpF

I do not agree with everything he says, like the endgoal being less important than the process. Both are important, but if you have low self discipline and too much stars in your eyes then this is a good book to set you straight and get you into the grind with a realistic/grounded vision.
>no easy answer. maybe you have ideas to share?
I can only give general advice but if you want something that applies to you as an individual then I can't help you because there are too many variables/I don't know what works for you. For me it has always been a gnawing desire to express the visions I have in my head and whenever I actually manage to succeed it feels really good. But raw desire is hard to manage and highly inconsistent, that is kind of why I like that book.
>but you need all these other components
This is why I also lift, meditate, manage my sleep/diet and try to develop more logical/left brain skills so that my machine/hardware/masculine part of me can manage more of my artistic feminine explosions of idiocy. I like the way you put it. I am a highly irrational being (relatively speaking) so balancing more with the rational can ironically get me to express more of my visions. I hope this helps?
>much creativity but crashing every bend might in total actually look like less creativity than a mediocre one that one can actually consolidate.
Yeah, that is me. Burnouts often. Less now.

yeah, I too think that process AND result are important!
in dynamical systems theory there is the idea of the critical point (at which phase transition occurs).
liquids are highly chaotic. they are movable and entropy increases in them quickly until homogeneity is reached - at which point potential energy is lost. the result is stale/dead.
crystals on the other hand are highly ordered. so much so that no piece of it can easily be moved. the rigid lattice structure won't allow for any mobility, making it inept for life as well.

complexity is an emergent property that arises inbetween these two extremes:
at (or close to) said critical point, from which the system is allowed to spontaneously lean into any of the two states, if it so chooses. (through control and action)

you can find this idea "unity of opposites" everywhere - even in most (all?) religions and spiritual schools; yin yang, syzygy, hieros gamos,...
the higher level control mechanism is constantly being confronted with having to consider the lower-level drivers (which are mulishly pulling towards one of the phase states).
a multi-agent system with you at the steering wheel.

Does anyone have the Berkeley Mono (https://berkeleygraphics.com/typefaces/berkeley-mono/) full please?

One was shared years ago on files.catbox.moe but the link has since expired.
this is so kind, thank you

I downloaded this one from somewhere a month or two back, it had a broken grave (u0060 `, would overlap onto characters typed in certain places like Windows Terminal and vscode), so I went into fontforge and edited the character (Element>Glyph Info>OT Glyph Class> Mark --> Base Glyph).

this is v1.008, not the newest v1.009 (couldn't find it anywhere)

Not sure if this belongs here but since it's regarding photo manipulation (which counts as graphic design) I might as well try.
So I like this genre of edits of women called "Natural/Modular Body Magic", which basically means that they look like they either had their heads magically removed or that they never had any at all but they can live just fine without them (like dullahans), but many of them are pretty shit so I wanted to make some good ones of my own, the problem is that there are no good tutorials online on how to make them, so I was wondering if you guys could guide me on how to make them.
Pic related is more or less what I want to achieve, something that looks relatively natural and organic, rather than just a quick and sloppy MS paint job.

how many women have you killed already?
I'm onto you, you sick fuck.
The bottom left one looks best imo. The same color as the skin with correct lighting for the angle, and the sharp clean edge makes it look like a barbie doll or a realistic android from the future. The other ones look like the couldn't actually be something real, just images. If you're going for amputated limb look then the left one in op looks the best.

Looking forward to be a Freelancer Graphic Designer and Blender Artist.

I'm a 19 years old male, I decided to not attend to college because In my point of view, it's just not worthy it, paying thousands for something you can learn online. Here is my problem though, I don't know where I should start. I feel like I'm not confident enough, and I don't know many places where I could capitalize over my work.

I'm currently working at my family's business, but it's so annoying having to work with public, and being at a family's business doesn't make you feel like you are independent. Which is what I'm looking forward to be.

It's been hard since everyone tries to push me into college, because in their mind, college = easy life. And I really don't bother getting minimum wage as long, I'm doing something that I enjoy.

What are some good collaborative sketching/drawing services or applications?
Personally I'm looking for something that'll work as a graphical version of google docs, similar to flockdraw or ziteboard with decent tools for sketching, support for text and large canvases, as well as the ability to embed pictures and possibly gifs, ideally free/open-source or self-hosted.
But feel free to share other related tools, anything you think is good.
the free ones i’ve used are Magma, Malmal/HelloPaint, and Drawpile. i believe they all allow public and private boards with varying graphic tools but Magma seems the most encompassing. if it’s for like corporate purposes there’s stuff like microsoft whiteboard as well
opencanvas if its still around

Hey anons, i have a selfish request. This is an exterior design of a house I plan to build.
Without changing the proportions too much is there any way you could make it look more cool and aesthetic?
Im not sure what but i feel like something is missing from it looking very cool, rich and futuristic.

I hope this is the place to ask.
Thanks in advance my Nwords

>downsizing would actually help you achieve degradation

>i guess i'm not really understanding what the issue is

No shit, it works in in exactly the opposite way; reducing the size of an image is how line art and other images are cleaned up and an integral part of the process of creating art for print media back in the day.

Easiest way to imitate copy/fax machine degradation digitally is to mess with light values, contrast, exposure, etc , since most photocopying artifacts and distortions are the result of the actual photographic part of the process and strong light was what allowed them to reject all but text and other deliberate markings....every generation was slightly overexposed and the contrast boosted so details like fine lines, dots and sharp corners would gradually melt away.
At the same time, if you adjusted the machine darker to pickup those details any small dark areas, erased pencil lines and even the shadows of paper texture would get reproduced, and subsequent attempts to lighten them back out by re- copying with higher contrast wouldn't get all of them, leaving characteristic splotchiness.
each time the ink prints it’s not a digital process nor is the scanning it’s analog to digital in the scan and digital to analog in the printing
so you would find the physics of the scanning process then simulate it and same for the printing, simulate the analog printing
with those 2 filters it’s an iterative process for each and the number of iterations increases the effect of scanning then printing, taking the output and repeating the process

That’s how you would make an accurate fx or plugin or whatever but you can just jank it using photoshit
Try the app "LOWER" w the yellow icon :P
Just to be clear, xerography is not an inherently digital process and doesn't use ink...it uses an electrically charged drum or belt to selectively attract a dry powder toner to desired print areas, that is then thermally fused to the paper printing substrate.

It's more analogous to how powder coating works than printing and the less than precise nature of how it translates the source image to a static charge as well as the resolution available with the mechanical properties of the toner are part of what gives it its characteristic look and generational loss of detail and artifacting.

The fact that xerography *isn't* digital is part of why it can be difficult to replicate convincingly using digital technology and digitally created files that tend to pixelate and show other obviously digital artifacts when deliberately degraded in a digital process.

What are you working on, /gd/?

Morę or less the latter. They are a bit similar to Royal Monograms and to signatures. A styilised set of words. And that nine fold script has been chosen because it's easier to carve out a rectangular symbol.
