>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.

My new boss at my job wants me to do graphic design when I'm only a studio arts major.. Recently despite that they've been having me do hands on projects. This week they want me to create a jeopardy game on Trevor Noah's recent book "Born a Crime." So far I made this but I still need to see how to make slides flip in google powerpoint please help

Post your album covers and let's discuss what we like and don't like! I feel like this would be a good way of learning to better your craft. I'll start. This is something I made for my Soundcloud, it has only two tracks in it, one's a remix. It's all electronic ambience right now.

Giannis is better than all of those fucks.

Thanks for looking!
Do you think the corners of the silhouette are too sharp? Should everything have the same corner radius?

I'm not a pro and you won't hurt my feelings. Please help me make this work.
Thank you!

i'll be honest-this looks like mediocre 70s logos. chunky bars, clumsy negative space, and overly generic shape.

Maybe make the corner radii the same (less on the outer ones, more on the inner) and resize it into a square?

to clarify white/red makes me think of hospital or something aggressive/actiony. i feel like yellow or gold should be in there since it's a keyhole

hello anons, I am currently looking for a drawing tablet in the price range of roughly a hundred dollars up to 150. there shouldn't be a screen but just the tactile trackpad, some buttons on the side and on the stylus also if possible the neat pen pressure thing. Any recommendations?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>368363
are there any other tablets you would recommend?
>>
>>368365
for 150 i guess you can afford chink ones that are as good as wacom intuos series. look in /ic/ wiki and ask around on that board.

the only typical drawback that their styluses require charging, but i've heard that wacom's patent for inductive (no batteries) stylus has expired and chinks are making equally good cheaper-than-wacom ones.
>>
Thank goodness for this thread. Is it better to use clip studio paint pro or ex, or is there a better art program out there?
>>
Is the Wacom Intuos S a good tablet for a digital art noob?
>>
xp-pen is better than wacom desu, i have their 80 dollar tablet and its good

How exactly does waifu2x work when not resizing? It smooths out an image better than any program I've tried to use to achieve the same effect with noise reduction.

What are some ways to make passive income as a graphic designer / Illustrator?
>>
>>368391
There's lots, though none of them are "passive" since you'll have to spend a few hours per day to make any money, the best way is just to built your own website and make bundles or partner up with someone that has a physical and/or digital store and sell stuff there. some options:

Creativemarket - selling fonts or design graphics
Amazon Merch - selling shirts
Themeforest - selling web templates
Redbubble & Teepublic (same owner) - selling stickers and shirts designs
Society6 & Bigcartel - selling designs but you'll need an audience or followers
Designbyhumans - selling shirts if you're a bit more artistic
Etsy+Printful/Shopify - selling hand crafted physical or digital designs
Gumroad & Sellfy selling assets or digital files
Logoground & Brandcrowd - selling logos
Shutterstock & Depositphotos - selling generic vectors
Stockillustrations - selling artistic illustrations
>>
>>368391

this isn't really passive, but will set you up working for yourself for the forseeable future. It's slightly luck based though and takes a shitload of work until it slowly starts to pay off.
build up a social media following through posting trendy works on reddit / instagram etc, you have to be there in the middle of the trend though to catch the most exposure. e.g. the recent explosion of '/r/imsorryjon' has died down now, but for about a week, every half-decent artist that posted a scary garfield piece made the top of /r/all, and gained a huge instagram following.

Once you've got the followers, you'll begin to accrue passive followers and interest without really having to grind out work, eventually you can turn around and sell these followers different things for next to no effort, such as instagram/youtube thumbnails, logos, just general art, anything really, they'll buy it just because it's coming from you.

Slow and steady for a long time, but the payoff is consistent work, and I get to sit at home all day smoking weed and designing bullshit for a job

I've been seeing a lot of Sam Hyde's graphics from his ex-TV show World Peace along with his YouTube channel. He is really gifted and found his style, which I may label as propaganda-esque. Post similar stuff to what Sam Hyde has made

definite Y2K vibe but it has more edge to it, in motion everything is hectic like a fever dream of drugged up teenager on the verge of snapping

he didnt do anything on mde. he freelanced for a bit after college and that was it
>>
>>368366
That's really wrong man, Sam and Joel did graphics on MDE for years. Later Sam stepped away from it but for WP, him Joel and Ryan from Pomp&Clout did all the graphics with a super tight deadline. If Sam is good at anything, it's his GFX. HWD is really terrible but the newest one has great bumpers.
>>
He worked with brooklyn based studio Pomp&Clout for the visuals on World Peace.
He definitely took part in the art direction.
