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.

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)?
>>
>>370598
Is there a tutorial on how to achieve that specific style?
>>

It's pretty much just noise and selective color adjustments

Not specifically the shitty hand drawn style hear but anything unique and interesting or just stuff you personally like.

You can check this store aswell

I am not sure if it is a custom font or if it does exist somewhere but I am trying to match the font used for the Monarch logo and can't even find something similar.

The n's are so round that allot of what I was looking at comes close and be it that the a's don't have that over hang makes it even harder unless it is an italic font and the logo isn't italics.

Would anyone know anything about it?

What does What The Font say? They have a forum on there for identifying fonts that the web app can't identify.
>>
>>371533
It's probably a modified font, or they had one made, that they only use internally. There's a couple that are close.

Why does the the post metro windows ui look so cheap?
>>
Actually, Material looks cheap.
>>
>>371092
It's not that bad.

But probably because all the good designers got hired by Google and Apple.
>>
>>371109
Material looks good on a phone. It was never intended for desktop yet everyone insists on using it there for some reason
>>
>>371092
its so bad. really harsh shadowing on the drop down list but everything else is flat. no rounded corners so everything has a very severe look which is inconsistent with the playful typography and icons. Microsoft has so much money but their UI is so poorly done, its a mystery to me
>>
>>371092
That's because it is cheap. It takes 30 seconds for a programmer to lay out the UI to sort of match the style guideline, instead of going through an actual graphic designer, which takes weeks.

Are skill bars recommended in CVs? They are practically in any GD cv I've seen online

I remember reading an interview with this guy. Turns out, he used it, the company noticed it and thought it’d be cute to call him in. Turns out, he’s really qualified as a rocket scientist, and now does government contracting.
Feels like a bullshit story, but then again, I’m constantly surprised by bullshit that works in spite commonly observed expectations of taste and professionalism.

Any other GD'rs dabbling in programming? I didn't see a board for programming, and I think there should be, but I've been a "full time" graphics guy for almost 6 years and in the past 2 I've become fascinated with programming. While I have absolutely no use for the image I'm attaching, I am very intrigued by the potential power of generating /some forms of/ artwork via programming code. I wrote the code which creates the line art in the image, and I'm excited to do much better eventually, and apply far more logical coding for nicer and more design-relevant results. Before yesterday, I was using programming to manipulate existing shapes for my processes at work, and only now have I played with using code to create. Is there a better board for this talk? Do any of you have interest in this topic? I find it insanely cool.

I find that visually very ugly, yet technically AMAZING due to being generated with code. So fucking ugly though, for me. Probably the colors, I have never liked red and yellow together.

Thanks lad.

>>371892
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.
>>
>>371384
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
>>

>>371384
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.

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?
