How did you do it?

Is GD actually scalable?

Stop making shit yourself and start learning business and networking. Create a design firm and sell branding to domestic companies for thousands, then pay people on fiverr pennies to do the actual grunt work.

Boom, scaled.
>>
Imma tell you this once: fuck scaling.

ALL business is a margins game, not a volume game. I can serve 10 clients at $150.00/hr and make fucking bank with next to no overhead.

Just network and garner B2B clients who won't flinch at $5-10k for design work. If you can code too, that helps a lot.

After that just keep it rolling and you don't have to put up with anyone's shit.

So I started with a simple star picture and for some reason thought that it would be cool to make it like the milky way from scratch. I realize its busy but I need some opinions.

Dimensions look off because I compressed from 1080 to 720.

not a fan of the style or concept, but i guess that's subjective. swallowing that, here's the only feedback you need (most of these suggestions are atrocious):

1. the sun should be centre aligned, maybe even a bit higher than the exact middle to optically balance the trees. use your best judgement after seeing both. (move santa up and maybe to the right slightly as well, always balance things optically)

2. there's a disconnect between the sun's texture and everything else. I would suggest changing it to a solid colour or gradient. the abstract texture is out of place.

3. the area where the back of the vortex overlaps with the front needs to be finessed more. kinda ruins the depth of the grid. try adding some shadows to seperate it more (which will recall the top part fading out as well)

How'd you make the vortex?

Hello! Does anyone have advice on how to create weird or experimental special effects or special effects used to make a creepy or weird feeling? I am familiar with a few editing programs and am interested in making something experimental. I am also wondering if the analog ways of creating these effects are available. Thank you for reading!

Video Synthesizers, Video Mixers, and of course you can just fuck with the colors and levels and keyframe changes in between them in whatever video editor you use. The most popular analog video synth stuff is LZX Industries and Tachyons +, while digital is a bit more open...You have apps like Resolume, Touchdesigner, VVVV, Max/MSP, Smode Synth, Cathodemer, and many others!

Yes, a repost but I want to hear opinions from both IT and GD oriented, anons.

>25, graduated with my useless degree,
>Time to do what I wanted to do whole life
>good at drawing and feel proportions, colors and composition, I sketch and paint a lot,
>love PROGRAMMING and being an IT hipster, I used *BSD before 4chan existed.
>The only thing that I know and connects all of these is a Full stack-shizo (web developer).

But what am I exactly supposed to learn, besides HTML, JS, PHP (it's still used here) and xd/sketch whatever's the meme?

IT people tell me I need absolutely everything including c (I'm glad c# is dead, nobody will try to meme me into it anymore) and asm for gameboy color, because "don't you love coding"?

At the same time art-school requires me not only to sketch and to paint with 1-2 fav mediums but also to do insane homeworks with mediums like tea-bag water, while everything but sketching and digital painting is probably and overkill for me. I even know CADs and blender+3dmax.

Additionally not mentioned in the other thread; I also might pick a typesetting/font class soon. That makes me feel horribly overloaded.

The redand the white vibrate. I don't know if that's what you want but in general you shouldn't use any of the 5 primary colors (red blue yellow white black) next to each other as they vibrate (the same happens with the secondaries purple green orange and with the black and white) . Try saturating the red.
