>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]?
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.

Hello, /gd/.

I'm new to Photoshop and I want to try some easy effects.

Looking for something easy to start with, I tried the "turn to stone" effect, thinking it would work well.

This is as far as I've gone, but the hair, eyes and eyebrows look awful.

How can I work with that to create a real petrification effect?

Any ideas/tips?

Source pics in the next posts, in case you want to show something with my picture.

Give me back my dog you bitch
No, seriously, how do you turn pitch-black pixels into stone without it looking like shit?

I get you can modify the levels for the mid tones, but what do you do with total blacks (and whites)?
Is there a tutorial on how to achieve that specific style?
It's pretty much just noise and selective color adjustments

Here's the deal guys, me and my brother are sick of being wagecucks to our jobs and want to start doing freelance graphic design together, while i have some expierence in it and graduated from desing college, my bro is new to this. How do we approach this? I know we have to start from learning some more software skillz and making portfolio, but what would be the best niche in graphic design field to focus on? Product packaging? Logo design? what sells? I dont want us to be one of those people that do everything ( and ,nothing really good)

Wondering if you guys know some places to discuss about GD with people that arent shit at it and more active than here and ofc not fill with leftist or LGBT bland shit.
If you're afraid of people not sharing your political beliefs when it has no relevance to the topic maybe you're the one with a problem

Thanks lad.

It's not about my political belief you inbred. Leftists and LGBT are mostly bad at GD because they do the same exact shit, it's like telling 100 niggers to go niggering, and they will pretty much do similar things, same there except that they are also a bunch of basedboys so you can't tell them the real truth about how shitty their design is, i'm not a teacher, if it's shit i want to tell it and may be help him out doing a better job if he can take the hit.

I work inhouse and to be honest I like it. I do video as well which is the most tedious as a lot of it is just slide show things but I get a hell of a lot of creative freedom. It helps it's startup with just a load of other guys in their 20s. The pay is also steady and I get to choose the freelance gigs I wanna do on the side.
I'm a dev and whenever I need an icon or logo, I'll just whip it up myself because I don't want to wait for others to give me an asset I need ASAP. I bet our in-house design team would love to do some of that stuff
since you're still working that job, you must love it very much, how else could you live with yourself otherwise?

golden cuffs holding you back, lad?
working in house sucks not because the lack of creativity, but the fact that you can never be sure that what you do actually brings any result, if sales improve it's not thanks to you but other departments, if sales plumment sometimes you got fingers randomly pointed at despite it not being your fault at all. no sense of accomplishment really

My general manager psychologically belittles me, telling me, "I'm a shitty graphic designer and that's why I'm not working with the big boys!", yet he always asks me for photoshop help all the time. Been working this in house job 7 years.

It's not an effect. You could get that done with layer masks and layer modes. Now go learn how.
Make text in Illustrator
Use the Extrude and Bevel Tool on the text.
Expand the effect and recolor.

Redpill me on Adobe Illustrator. Worth it? Necessary? Average? Useless?
Do you want to work with vectors?
Use Inkscape.
Do you want to be paid to work with vectors?
Use Illustrator.
>Worth it?
just pirate it like everyone else
definitely I couldn't do anything without it. photoshop is mostly useful for retouching and editing photography and inkscape is just too inefficient.

I need to download Adobe XD , I'm using TPB but I fear this version (or whatever version) will interfer with my pirated After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator that are currently working fine.

How do I avoid this?
>How do I avoid this?
By being a good ux designer with a lot of cash.
Xd is free, dumbass. Download it through the Creative Cloud app.
