Twitter is the best because they use flat colours with no gradients or shading.

UNICODE Consortium has let me efficiently express presence of my 2 pedophile faggot Asian Daddies and that I like to shoot waterpistols and my veganism.

From graphical design standpoint I do like Microsoft ones because of how crisp and clear they are.

>>371020
>>371038
Agreed, Microsoft or Twitter. I'd say Android has the worse current gen emoji's though.

The new facebook emojis are really good, otherwise twitter. Most people use twemoji because itsa free

Had a friend who wanted a logo and packaging design for his CBD brand.. I said i'd do the logo for $250 and the packaging for $500, He loved the logo and the packaging, sent me $500 total and then asked for some changes in the content of the back of the packaging.. I waited two weeks for him to give me the changes, made the changes, and then he tells me again he's going to change it again..

Now he wants a refund of $250 for the packaging.

He's usually stoned out of his gord so idk how I should deal with him, don't want to lose a friend but goddamn he wasted so much of my time.

WWYD?

All this shit. When a company wants a new logo, they pay a new designer to make it. They don't ask the old designer for the money back, that's crazy. If someone bought one of his CBD products, then said. "You know I already took half of these supplements, but I want the other ones instead now, and half my money back ON TOP of that." Do you think he'd go for it? He's probably making good money, and already underpaying you. Probably because he doesn't view graphic design as "real work" or some bullshit. This is what happens when dumb bros become businessmen. Honestly, whether or not they actually consume cannabis, people who start companies in the cannabis business pretty much always try to fuck you over and pay you less.

Recently happened to me.
I said "Can't refund you, the money is for the time spent on your proyect, even if you end up not using it."
It was for $30usd tho because I live in a third world country.
But still, he was pissed.
>>
>>369630
prices are fair but fuck no he cant get a refund because he changed his mind.
nice branding btw
>>
>>370475
cont
Also tell him if he wants to be a respected businessman and have a clear head to look after the business he needs to stop being joker smoker getting high on his own supply
>>
>>369630
why not just tell him sure you'll refund the whole thing but he can't use the design or logo and he can find out how much it really costs...

Hey guys/gals,

I have a question about Gimp and I cannot find a simple answer for this (maybe I suck at explaining it) on Google or co:
Question is this:
Is there a way to modify a layers attributes that whatever is drawn on that layer does not, in any way, interact with the layers above - even when those are overlays or have opaque areas/colors?

Specific example:
I am coloring in a black/white picture. I made a bunch of layers for everything except the background.
Now I just want to create a layer for the background, fill it or paint it, but I don't want it to interact with the layers above it.

Like the picture in my post - I don't want the background to be visible behind the foreground and create a mix of colors.
Is there any way to give layers a property so that everything below it basically just "doesn't exist" there, without carefully drawing around it?

TL;DR
I want to create a background layer that I can color without "watching for lines" by modifying it to be completely covered by the upper layers even if the colors on the upper layers are not at 100% opacity.

I don't know gimp but take the brush tools set attribute to normal, opacity/fill to 100% and you shouldnt have anykind of problems.

Trying to make a jewel, advice? thx. ;-;

Nice! Maybe place another layer on top, make a circle and put purple to transparent gradient, then set to overlay/screen to add more depth. A little inner glow should also help.
>>
>>370989
Tried your idea, hows it looking
>>
idea is, you add normal, desaturating light, to the top as the reflection on the surface and then some blurred saturating (color dodge/overlay) light to the bottom as the reflection from the inside surface.
>>
>>371033
as a quick and dirty example, u can add layer effect > emboss, but replace the black shadow with white overlay and turn up the height to maximum

Why did they switch from Apple Garamond to Myriad, and then to SF?
>>
>>370828
Because Apple Garamond is just a copy of ITC Garamond, which isn’t even a real Garamond and has a shitty plastic 80s look, with its overly high x-height and accentuated roundness. You fucking faggot.

You need to set each frame to replace the previous instead of combining with it.

Anyone feel like explaining to a retard how to make two layers with the exact background but with one with an object in it subtract each other so I can obtain the object alone in photoshop? Pic related
>>
You don't have to do that.

1. Use quick selection tool (W) and select the car, hold alt and use to remove areas selected by mistake.

2. Go to Select > Modify > Contract then contract by a few pixels to remove the border.

3. (Optional) Selection > Refine Edge... to make clean edges.

4. Ctrl + J to put the selection in a new layer.

Or

1. Use pen tool (P) to select the car.

2. Alt + Ctrl + Z to remove mistakes.

>>370968
Yeah thanks man I knew I could've done all of this but unfortunately the object and the background have similar colors so it's a pain to extract it alone, even with the pen tool. I thought it would be more efficient to have photoshop remove all the similar pixels in the images.
>>
>>370998
but how will you find an exact copy of the image which only difference is the object

How could I recreate something like picrel in Ps or Ai? I'd like to make thicc oil painting strokes but I don't know if its possible to make them digitally, or just use some random brush(es) and add shadow for volume? Please help

are graphic designers expected to create their own resume layout / design? does it look bad not to too, or is it just an extra opportunity to show off?

it's better than most things that get posted here but it could improve a lot just by just some grid tweaks to keep it more balanced
I can tell you are paying attention to some sort of grid since your alignment and spacing is consistent but it seems like if said grid was kind of random

I think it's that the Natives don't want to see their features monetized by people that slaughtered them and stole their land. First you eradicate my ancestors and history, then use them for a "neat design?" Hell no man, it doesn't work like that.
>>
>>370929
You’re blaming the descendants for the alleged crimes of their ancestors. That just doesn’t sit right with me at all and dare I say, racist to judge an entire group by the color of their skin?
