Please help my retarded ass
I'm trying to make a seamless repeating stripe pattern where the lines are 30.3 degrees spaced 1:1 and I just cannot fucking figure it out. No matter how I position it I just can't get it lined up
I've tried looking up line generators but not a single one lets you choose an angle

On Adobe ilustrator you can use the "align" function in "window"

Does it have to be square though?

I mean, you can make repeating patterns with rectangles.
take a look at the patterns at meatspin.fr to get a better idea of how to easily accomplish your goal
its been a long time and i had to look it up but cant you
1 Choose the Ruler tool (I or Shift-I), formerly the Measure tool.
2 Drag along a feature of the image that you want to orient horizontally or vertically, A and note the angle (A) value on the Options bar. ...
3 Choose Image > Rotate Canvas > Arbitrary. ...
4 Click OK.

then you can make a seamless pattern by using the offset feature in photoshop

That's not how critiquing works you spoilt little cunt
This was my first graphic design I made. It's obviously gonna suck. It was my first time using adobe photoshop. You lames kill the joy of everything. What a drag.
if you're asking for a critique on 4chan of all places you need to have thicker skin than that
what the fuck is this garbage?

I agree with you and I really pushed to stay on the current game where the visuals were completely figured out but enough folks were insistent on getting that new game experience (tm) to override it. One of the reasons I'm hopeful will do well in Winter is because staying on the elite cup route means not having to deal with the new game early in Spring. With any luck the visuals will be solved by Summer or people will admit it's not worth the effort and we'll be back to a version of the game where everything can look as good as it traditionally has.

Fucking hell

I'm really interested in graphic design and managed to go to a university to study it but apparently, most of the people here can draw really well and I feel like I'm falling behind cause the majority of tasks and assignments require lots of drawing and shit. I don't know If choosing this major was the right decision since I feel like I barely have any chance to compete with other people
I'm doing graphic design , and most people in my class cannot draw really well.

I'm decent tho :D
That being said, they will not mark someone on their drawing capabilities, you can get full marks without drawing anything.
i've been in this industry for 10 years now and i can't draw for shit. the thing about design is there are such a broad array of specialties, there's a good chance you wont ever need to draw anything at all.

and that's just talking about high-fidelity artistic drawings.

like straight up, i'm NOT an artist. i'm a designer. there's a difference there that people forget about.

i know logo designers who never sketch on paper. their medium is the computer.

its about translating an idea from your brain to reality and whether thats on paper or on screen, it doesn't matter. you'll figure out a workflow that works for you.
You're a dumbfuck shitposter, but your shitpost comes from an attempt to encapsulate the feelings of real people.
To those real people, read this fucking paper and you'll be fine:
Yeah you dont need to learn how to draw but youre gonna want to anyway.

You would thonk that yhe computer would give you infonite freedom because of its possibilities but the opposite is true. Too much choice paralyzes you and the fact that ots instantaneous means it gives you no time to think while youre in the creagive zone like you would if you were drawing.

At first you think you can just do everything on the computer. But the you realize that step one to designing anything is always sketching on paper. Its just a superior workflow that saves so much time. You dont have to be a concept artist or anything, but a decent grasp on perspective and anatomy will serve you well
graphic design is where people who don't have what it takes to be serious artists go to remain irrelevant.

I’m new here and I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask but what is the best way to animate mouths in anime studio?
that big pic of the lips... something about that alongside the question... i get the sense you're a perv man. whatchu up to

I just started practicing drawing on and off the last year or so, and I learned illustrator by accident using Inkwell in Ubuntu, which I had no idea how similar it was. Thanks for your input!
Looks like stoners materials, stoners usually don't give a shit as long as weed and mushrooms are on it, just put some cats in there and you good.

What do you guys use to design(just design) web/landing pages? I'm considering using Adobe XD since people say its workflow is faster and more focused on ui/ux than photoshop
I literally design my websites in CSS. I just don't see the point of using something like Adobe XD or Photoshop when you can get direct results.
mostly ill just sketch something with pen and paper. if i want a more precise idea ill use illustrator
there are people that require just a design from you. They have different guys for coding and design(they need quality ig).
err to clarify I mean Sketch App, not like sketching in a notebook.

anybody knows where i can get this Phr33 ?

50 bucks is just too much for a single short project..

I'm a graduating graphic design student living in the GTA. Im currently looking for an internship to complete my final year of schooling.

If there is anybody out there who is currently working at a graphic design studio or could give me any possible leads I would appreciate anything.

I'm not a usual 4chan user, but I thought I'd give this a shot even if I could get any critiques on my work, that would also be awesome. Ill be posting projects from my portfolio, among other things.

Let me know what you think!

For books shoot me an email to frenchsasha@gmail.com , I have a 2 gig collection of ebooks.

Youtube/Podcasts I would reccomend The Futur. Chris Do has some good talks there.

As for technical skills youtube has a shit ton of tutorials, just look up an effect you wanna do and theres a 99% chance theres a tutorial on youtube.

In general to improve in design I would suggest to design one thing every day. Doesnt matter what it is, just do it until you are satisfied. This was a resolution I made for myself and have been going strong for 18 days. It really helps work your creative muscles and prevents you from stagnating.

i'll tell you a bit about me, I've never taken an art course in my life (except elementary school and seneca). My parents groomed me to be a computer science kid and I did a year at UTSC doing that. Fucking hated it lol. TLDR I got arrested and kicked out from there and ended up enrolling in seneca.

So I started with nothing, and those two years in seneca (three years normally, but i took summer school) taught me the foundations for everything I know today. Most of the profs are really genuine and actually care/help you out. (but always ask first, they will not come to you) I learnt all the technical shit like Ps, Id, Ai, Ae etc etc. However in my free time i learnt Cinema 4D (still learning) and some other extra software. ( i would REALLY reccomend learning C4D and Ae after you get the basics down) .

As for the internship, in the last semester you get a list of companies that have relations with seneca (they have some pretty high up companies like entro, bruce mau, underline, etc), and you go for interviews with selected companies. If they like you and your work, theyll usually hire you.

almost forgot; attend design events. There is a p good design scene in toronto. For example yesterday there was a Drinks and Designers event where people get together and talk about design. Networking is super important. Some of my friends/classmates dont know how to talk to people or make connections. Its kind of a shame because they miss out on so many opportunities.
great info, thanks a ton dude. I'll definitely drop you a line through email!
