~Change a daytime image to a night time one.
~Take a picture of a city, or a neighborhood, and replace a building.
~ Take a picture of something, like a car interior, and change the color of the fabric/interior panels.
~ Restore an old cracked, torn photo.
~ Take a picture of a house, and replace the siding with stone, or brick, or something unique.
~ Take a photo of an empty bottle, and fill it with liquid, realistically.
~ Take a series of photos, like of fruit, and remove the background and build clean clipping paths, for using in a catalog.
~ Take a photo of a model, and change the outfit she's wearing - not just color, but add a new item of clothing, like a scarf.
~ Create a photo realistic scene, from scratch.
These may sound boring, but they're jobs I've actually done professionally, and learning to get it done is the point, not the end product. The other ideas that anon posted are creative ideas. If that's what you want, disregard this.
You're right about it not being appropriate for photoshop projects.
I immediately realized that after I posted the third one, and was like, "ah fuck. Ah, fuck it..."
They're good ideas, though - like I said, they're strong GD projects. Like, if you started a "How to learn the Creative Cloud" thread. Op didn't say what he wanted specifically, anyway.

this text is awful to read. 50 to 75 symbols per line is optimal. anything less is a pain to read.
this is a classic layout and honestly it feels better to read. i'd try making margins a bit bigger though

The project is pretty much about font aesthetic so the whole ad has to be in one font and have a long copy. The teacher made the guideline that we have to have a big gutter and i just make them uneven after reading that tip in the Josef Müller essays. I'd make more space but idk i kinda wanted to work with a lot of copy, the ad is supposed to be read above a urinal i think so people could read it for a while, that's why i don't want to make the text too too small idk. i got rid of the end lastly though lol, i just want to have fun guys :(
im probably gonna hand in this one in the end. fug it
Make 4 columns with gutters and use them. Your columns are uneven which is making your placement look really sloppy rn.

Also I feel like your spacing is too small and leading too large. Not a fan of using something so thin for so much type either.

Even though I have these books I don't understand grids or how to apply them at all
It's translated from German so it's kind of awkward and hard to read.
Amazing, Changed the way i design forever
get some tracing paper, grab a bunch of magazines. trace the grids.
that may help you understand them more.
this is good advice. you can also do this with any work that you may believe has been done with a grid

Post on Reddit instead, that's more your style
>What do you think?
I think that you shouldn't have made a thread to advertise your YouTube channel, as it is against the rules.

Next time, feel free to make a thread with an actual topic (for instance, "Hand lettering and typography") and post an image of what you made in that thread, instead of making a thread just about your new project and linking to off-site content

Oh, and the stuff you posted is mediocre and you should feel mediocre. Saged.

Hi, is it actually worth it to buy Procreate on iPad Pro?
I mean, I do all my work on PC (UX/UI as my job and doing back-end too because of my studies) but I always wanted to learn to draw. I even have bought Intuos some time ago but I just can't get used to using pencil in Photoshop so I end up drawing in Sai anyway.
That's what I do, if I do have time because most of the times I find myself having the time to draw only when I don't have access to my PC (e.g. I'm on some easier classes, during breaks or when I just feel like to when I'm anywhere but at uni or my home. I never bring my Intuos with me for my notebook, it's too clunky that way)
Would it actually suit me/would I be able to get accustomed to easily to Procreate?
Is the app itself actually worth it as much as it is advertised?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Okay, thank you guys
I'll offer an alternate opinion and say a resounding NO.

Procreate is designed for amateur illustrators, not graphic designers. If you're drawing doodles of people for wedding invitations or commissioned furry porn it's fine, but the limited canvas sizes and lack of vector drawing abilities put it at best in the "prosumer" market.

If you are doing design PROFESSIONALLY, or plan to be doing it, then you would be better off getting a Surface so that you can work with Adobe programs.

It pains me to say that, since I hate Adobe's subscription model and think they price gouge, but while Procreate is OK for doodling it simply isn't a professional program and what it can do is extremely limited when compared to the capabilities of Photoshop or Illustrator.
>Wacom doesn't really come close to it (I used to own few Cintiqs). A ton of creative professionals at a design company I work for don't even use traditional drawing systems like wacom anymore and everyone seems to use an ipad with either Procreate or Adobe Sketch.

BTW, OP, this is total fucking horse shit.
Cintiq monitors are much more responsive and have much higher utility than anything on the iPad simply because they can use the full-fledged versions of real graphic design programs instead of just the crippled garbage that is available in the iOS marketplace.
For illustration work might be a good toy, ux and ui... Not so much. Check this review: https://youtu.be/Gi7FRz3czvE

Honestly, I don't plan to use it for UX/UI as much as my whole workflow is basically dependent on PC. Just drawing definitely and occasional photo retouch on the go as it's in the case of Lightroom that I'm using on iPad already. Since I'm at uni and I bought it with intention to carry it instead of shit-ton notes I just thought to myself
>hey, why not make it as useful as it can be when i'm loosing so much time during lectures for doodles

Can't deny that what's already known is sure the best way to go, though, I'm defo not going to be an artist in case of drawing. I'll just stick with a "hobby" label for that category for me so I don't plan on buying expensive stuff just for a hobby. UX/UI makes me a living and soon will be back-end too so it's just more of a fulfillment for my desires to explore and learn things

You're applying design rules and aesthetics meant for static print work like posters, to an interactive medium like a website. Nothing on your website looks clickable, and it's too flashy and busy visually, it should serve to highlight your work, not itself.

Ash Thorpe has a really in-depth class on making nice HUD design for movies that is very easy to find with a bit of sleuthing.

main "trick" for realism is getting decent depth of field and chromatic aberration. you can do both pretty well in photoshop but after effects is a bit more powerful and really pulls everything off professionally

Ah nevermind. Too much work.
Duplicate > 3D > move it a bit.

Blur / glow and texture it's not that hard desu. makes it not awfull tho is another story
is his hud class worth spending time on?

his other classes felt like he held back
no they didn't.

I have a question, what's the best way to remove these (123RF) water tags from a photo?
politically correct answer: buy the photo
(truth: use PS clone stamp and repair brush combined)
Or just download free to use work off sites like Flickr, and not get sued anyway when you remove the watermark. I mean, it's not like photos of fucking clouds are hard to find.

Fantastic, I really like it. Did you design the assets yourself? If so I was wondering whats the process of doing so. Ive always wondered how thats done, in terms of coloring and shading, giving it that flat yet detailed look. sorry for the ignorance senpai

Welcome! Before posting on a board, check out the sticky. It's the first thread on the board and most boards have one. There you will learn what to do and what not to do in order to avoid getting shit on.

And remember, it's not their fault for being rude, it's your fault for failing to lurk and learn the law of the land.

"A lot of people just don't get it. If you don't have arts or design background, minimalism does come off as being lazy..."


I feel like this can be helpful for many of the budding students/hobbyists here, but simply put, minimalism is good if it conveys the exact meaning that is intended for the target. And by minimalism, the reference isn't exactly about the current minimalist trend, rather, it is meant in the sense that it has a clear focus that isn't drowned out by any secondary or unnecessary elements.

Also I made the artwork, if anyone is wondering.
Making simple shapes:


does anyone have a free download link for this?
they seem great and i really want them but i can only find paid download links
here's the link btw https://creativemarket.com/theshop/21900-Photocopy-noise-texture-pack?utm_source=cmembed&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=21900&u=theshop
try psdkeys.com or cgpeers also for requests use /wsr/
That kind of texture is dead easy to make.

Oh, wait, sorry, i forgot, this is 4chan, where nobody actually wants to learn how to do anything. My bad.
How do you make a texture like this then. Kind of interested.
1.) Get a photocopier.
2.) Fuck around with it.
3.) Scan the results.
