>>377595
its not a great composition.
composition refers to the organization of parts, the relationship of parts to each other, and the relations of parts to the whole.

its a 'realistically rendered' painting, but it isn't an amazing composition by any means.

enjoy being an art cuk.

I've seen worse on /ic/. You should make the beard a solid shape with the simple graphic art style you've got here -- as opposed to making it look "fuzzy".

I need advice. long story short...

>took a basic GD class (Photoshop, and Illustrator), and it was cool
>was going to major in GD
>ended up graduating with a totally different major I don't use for my current job
>ended up in the IT field doing basic shit (pay is okay)
>love computers, but I don't feel like it is my passion. so while the whole world is moving and studying/learning every day of new technologies, I honestly don't give a shit so I don't progress in this field
>too much of a Doomer to care about IT, and don't even play video games anymore
>really enjoyed making projects in Photoshop and even Premier (doing videography on my own)

if I were to decide to give this field a go, which resources should I use?
Where should I start to get a feel?
Is it really hard?

Coming from /g/, I'm interested in exploring what UI design would look like if HTML and CSS was thrown away and we started over from scratch.
But I don't speak your language. I could do it anyway, but I figured if I was going to do it then I might as well do it right.

What are some resources to learn how professional UI designers communicate with each other?

Hi /gd/, /ic/er here.
I'm an illustrator whose looking for someone to help me fix/reconfigure/redesign my website.
Currently I use GoDaddy's WordPress subscription which you use plugins to make your website. I thought since I know how to use Photoshop very well this wouldn't be too hard but its preeetty hard...
How much do novice graphic designers charge for putting together a website using WordPress, if I already have some of the barebones down and what I need? Its a very simple website, just about 5 pages with 5 different galleries mostly, along with one About page.

I tried looking to see if there was a questions thread but there wasn't which is why I'm posting here.

Like 100 bucks?
>>
>>377627
For that budget, you might find Squarespace as a better option.
>>
>>377574

I would recommend either Squarespace, https://www.squarespace.com, which is good, but kind of pricey or Cargo Collective, https://cargo.site, which is cheaper or was cheaper, but slightly more work, last I checked and not as good with mobile layouts, last I checked. That may have changed with their latest version of the site / service.
>>
>>377574
>>377662

Also wanted to mention Carbonmade for portfolio sites. https://carbonmade.com

I noticed here >>377627, you said your budget was $100.

Cargo Collective is $99 per year or $13 per month. https://cargo.site/Rates

Carbonmade has similar pricing per month. https://carbonmade.com/pricing

The first link is a Tumblr premium theme with its own domain.
The second one is a Squarespace site.

How do you make the blue faded shape on illustrator? please help
>>
Radial gradient, blue to white or blue to transparent.

https://youtu.be/R6GfHEKttjY

soft brush nigga
>>
look at how the left side of the circles gradient extends more outward than the right side. pay attention to that detail when you're recreating this. a soft brush as mentioned would work.

How can I fix this design?
10 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.

your images are still too big and they do not align. here's the layout I use, notice how all images' tops align. same with text. they are spaced evenly too.
I'd also advice to make the name of the board ("meta") in big bold letters, maybe even caps.
>What font size should I use?
9-12pt. 4chan uses 10pt, that's a good start.

I'd size the text a little bit, but it looks better! c:
>>
>>377566
yeah, definitely an improvement. it looks like 4chan now which is good. add a bit of a margin between text and pics. optionally, add slight box-shadow under pics like on 4chan, it helps with contrast.
and make the name of the board bigger and bolder

I added the drop shadow and margin, and wow, it looks a lot better now! I didn't even notice how close the text was to the image until you pointed it out! I tried making the board name larger and I tried making it bolder, but they both seem to look very bad. I also don't want to go over 32px for the font size.

The difference just by adding the drop shadow was amazing! Thank you for the suggestions!

>>377611
I changed the font size to 13.5, hopefully this looks better!

Then learn how to use InDesign, and stop being a noob. If you don't know enough InDesign to make a look book, you shouldn't be trying to rip people off working as one.

Lynda.com has great beginner tutorials on InDesign.
