Any torrent site has it. They give instruction how to crack it and bypass adobe detection. It's not difficult if you aren't inept

Is it possible to do most /gd/ work off an iPad Pro?

What apps do you use? Can you download fonts onto an iPad?

I have Procreate already, but it's aimed more towards drawing.
Depends on your field, I do branding and vector illustration and I can't live without Illustrator
Get Affinity apps, those should work as replacement for Photoshop and Illustrator.
You can download and install fonts.
Is iPad + Apple Pencil a good replacement for a cintiq?
>Is it possible to do most /gd/ work off an iPad Pro?

Every time I have a cool name for my personal GD BRAND that's available as .com, some cunts have the twitter or the instagram wasted on dumb shit.

How do you do BRANDING across all social media?
Id like to know this as well. this shit is difficult at times.
Don't search for names on fucked up registrars like GoDaddy. I did this mistake because at the time I didn't know that they're squatting available domains after you're searching for them only to up-sell them to you at a ridiculous price. Now, the one .com I wanted to buy is taken by a spam website with copy text that makes no sense, some stupid photos, and all the social media links inside are fake #links that don't go anywhere. What I did instead is I used a TLD that breaks the nameliketh.is. It's not perfect, but it was the only solution.
I have came up with some great ones that were unused but it took me months, most short ones are already taken so don't even botter with less than 5 character usernames, its not impossible to find good ones but is hard.

You'll have a few options the best one is just your full name, simple, clear and professional, If for different reasons you don't want to use it then you've got other options;

Using one or two words and/or "design/studio" at the end or at the beginning eg. Ethikdesign, UnelloDesign, KudosDesign, Luck&Logic, FlyingFortress.

A faster method will be using 3 words or 2 large ones, since the chances of people using it will be pretty low eg. BlackHoleVisions, DeFadePersephone, PencilXbone, FromUpNorth.

Another option is using a word + a couple of numbers (better yet if they mean something to you, also the more numbers the easier to find an available username) eg. coba24, Mikro72, Filter017, Absorb81, Cubicle7, Slash09, Deka22, Visform360.

Another similar method is modifying an existing word eg. R3DONE, Lati2d, Sekond, and particularly by repeating letters you will probably found one faster, eg. maatükk, Synergee, Hybreed, Kraaft, Gluboo.

combine some of those methods and you'll speed up the process.

I use this
I just use [firstname]dot[lastname].com
I started using the word dot spelled out years ago when I made my Twitter since they don't let you use symbols in your username. It's unconventional enough to be available for everything else since, but still memorable to everyone I show it to.

Anyone had experience of being an intern within a workplace/company that has little to no knowledge of graphic design? I’ve been doing a lot of posters and flyers, happy with the work but don’t get any real critical feedback to improve with or much direction as to what I should be doing. Am I wasting my time? I do 5 hours per week along with 14 hours of college work and a full time job, the money is good but I don’t feel I’m learning much apart from further experience with software.

I was in a similar situation in college working as an intern for a crappy app developer.
None of my work was good or important.
At times I was bored to tears, simply changing colors on a template, day after day. I got nearly 0 art direction, and felt compelled to do above and beyond what was asked of me in order to prove my talent.
While you may get an occasional pat on the back for doing something that actually takes effort, you'll more than likely get shut down for not doing exactly what you're told.

Unless you're lucky and get a good internship, you probably can't use it to build your portfolio.

However, any graphic design experience will make future employers more at ease with hiring you.

Save your design energy to create unique pieces in your spare time to build up your portfolio on your own time.

I got a fairly good job out of college with my crappy internship and strong portfolio.

So my advice is just do the minimum at your internship, try to become as proficient as possible with the software, and save your creativity for personal or school projects.
When you're a budding designer just learning all these exciting techniques and principles, it's scary when you start off with a boring, uninteresting job.

You get scared that this is what you'll have to deal with the rest of your life.

From my friends and my own experiences, it can be soul-crushing to not do what you're passionate about especially when you pay so much to go to school for it. (inb4 "You don't have to go to school for design")

I think it's important to acknowledge the concerns, but reassure that if you just keep slogging through the uninteresting, non-challenging jobs, you can eventually work your way to a position that is fulfilling.
Boring graphic jobs aren't so bad. You will still get paid decent, work in a comfy office, and you can still say you're a graphic designer. That's your official job title, which is great.

Really beats the fuck out of a lot of other shit jobs out there where you're basically a wearing your body away.
I've been in your situation for 5 years now. Everything I do gets praised as if it's amazing even when I know it's sub-par, just because I know how to use Adobe creative suite and nobody else does.

You just have to be your own worst critic. Teach yourself, keep up to date with latest software and design trends, do some more creative stuff on the side to keep your skills sharp. In this kind of scenario you have to challenge yourself or you'll stagnate fast.
These posters are butt ugly. The colours are al l wrong, they don't fit together

I'm trying to make a dark website design work. I need it look "neutral" but I'm having trouble picking a primary colour for my buttons, as I also need to have Green, Orange and Red for the various states of components.

And I don't want to use blue.

How the fuck am I supposed to create my own animated cartoon I have a script but I can't draw for shit is there like a programme j can use that will let me do shitty drawings then help me animate it?
animation is hard, it takes time to learn, but there's at least 5 ways that aren't drawing frame by frame. I'm not an expert but I guess AfterEffects+duik or animating by rigging bones to a character (puppet-like) is the one that takes the least amount of time per minute, besides AfterEffects there's also Adobe Animate CC (Flash), Toon Boom, Harmony, TVPaint Animation, 3D Cel shading, and few others. maybe post some art styles that you want your cartoon to look like to suggest better.


also you can google the pros and cons of each software.

What are some good free graphic design courses online? Found the calarts one hosted in coursera, but the fucking thing asks for credit card number even though its "free". Any other option? Im particularly looking for a branding course.

Hey /fa/

it's kinda offtopic, but I would like to attach great importance to aesthetics(!) - so i'm gonna ask you guys =)

So im about to write her a love letter fon christmas, its a moving story thou but tldr; we live like 6 hours
separated from each other and she got alot of performance pressure for her graduation and got also classes on saturday, so she could not continue the relation
So i was thinking of a cover sheet like that pic of this thread but with other languages like russian and norwegian (because i'm half russian and she's half norw...)
I will post some/one antoher option in the replys i was thinking of to use as cover sheet or smotheing similar. (I prefer the ones which i could draw/write by myself)

So what is your opinion on the sheets, or generally the idea behind it?

The letter is gonna be very personal but i dont want it to get too slushy or mawkish for her if you know what i mean.
Do u maybe have some other ideas, or inspirations for me?

i think it's a nice idea, and can turn out real nice if done right!

fyi "i love you" is "jeg elsker deg" in norwegian bokmål, and "eg elskar deg" in norwegian nynorsk (bokmål and nynorsk are two different variants of norwegian), so depending on her heritage you might want to choose one or the other.

The Resident Evil 4 HD project (http://www.re4hd.com/) has been working hard to make most textures in the game really HD (the "UHD" release on Steam was just barely an improvement over the old one);

But the one thing they've failed to do since 2014 is to make Ashley's panties HD...

So, I took the liberty to extract and find the texture file: 0468.dds (DirectDrawSurface), but im new at 3D design (I'm a systems engineer, 4+ years in the industry)…

Can somebody help me find the right direction?
I have paint.net installed, but have access to PS CS4.

I was thinking to find a good photo of some white panties, but after that I don't know what to do..
do I just add them on a new layer on top?
can I make the file larger (pixels)?

as far as I can tell, this is only half of the panties (and one leg?)

>this is only half of the panties
thought it was a wall
