Ok, I’ll bite.

Here’s a bunch of homemade TTRPG adventure hook cards I’ve made to give away at Gen Con as a calling card to demonstrate my prepress/production background, GD, and illustration.

Critique of your post: the lighting on the woman is significantly different from the dude on the right that it’s a distraction.

I made this to practice after having not made anything whatsoever for like a year, and depending on feedback, im considering putting it into a portfolio to try to find work in the field.

>>370781
i really enjoy the placement of the doorway and door in the whole image, however if it were up to me the door would have a tiny bit more detail (minimal hinges, knob, etc.)

I love the smearing paint and the motion blur in this one. The whole thing had enough detail to tell who it is and yet enough editing to make it look like it goes on a baseball card.

Did you use Illustrator or PS?

>>370821
Shadow should be a bit darker and slightly transparent if you can make it that way, especially since the image will be in sunlight. Also the shading on Gondola can definitely go for some smoothing. Overall very entertaining would buy if Teepublic wasn’t a fucking scam

Try making the shadow darker and longer so that it's almost bleeding off of the front of the t-shirt as it's laid flat, but make turn it into a black and white gradient with a multiply blending mode (if Illustrator. If Photoshop, just make the shadow black to transparent) so it fades into the solid background.

Logo, type, and color scheme for my thesis project.

We're branding a not-for-profit restaurant that employs refugees, former homeless, etc. and uses proceeds from paying customers to feed those who typically can't afford a nice meal
>>
>>370885
not a fan.

I see what you were trying to do with the m's in common, but it just doesn't read well or look good. also why is there a wave there? what does that have to do with the brand?

Since "Common" and "Good" share a few letters, maybe you can look into a solution where the two words shared some letters, as it'd be a relevant visual metaphor since the brand is essentially about sharing/giving back to the less fortunate.

I like Cooper for this project because its warm, welcoming and humble, much like the brand is. I'd probably get rid of Walsheim bold because its weight is too close to the weight of Cooper Medium which may lead to hierarchy issues and just stick with Walsheim regular.

I think your colors are fine; clean and welcoming.
>>
>>370887
Thanks for the feedback.

Original plan was to use an angular wave to resemble linked arms, with the four peaks representing the four pillars of the charity: to feed, to educate, to provide employment, and to bring together the community (pic related). My partner and I agreed the rounded wave might look better.

Thanks for the suggestion with interlinking the letters though, I'll definitely try that out

Just a tip. Use curves in PS to after turning to black and white so you can match the colors if both pictures if the originals are colored

How could I make this look more manly /gd/?
It's supposed to be for a transportation company that deals in trucks, but the client wants a redesign. How do I make it more tough and manly?


>>370813
The fade from the space circle looks kinda off considering the overall style. Maybe try a stroke, or something (maybe a window??).

I think it would help if the girl had something to sit on. Also maybe add a feather, those cuts are a bit sketchy.

The text should also be less sharp an more textured if you're going for that aesthetic.

Overall the idea is pretty good, but I wouldn't put it in a portfolio as it is right now.

>>370925
I doesn't really convey anything, it just looks like random shapes.

>>370926
The drop shadow on the subtitle should be closer to the text, other than that, pretty good.

>>370965
This looks awesome, I'd put some shadow underneath the tent and bring he top text a bit more down so it has some breathing room

this has too much shit in it and in result and has lost intended visual hierarchy.
just show body of the instrument as a clear, flat shape, in text do not emphasize the 'joke' too much or at all ..and put logo tiny af in the corner so viewer would have to look for it.

Actually graduated as a GD few months ago. Also what's posted here are work done as a student's. And yes those are based on trendy/easy tutorial but hey , what can I say , it's what people often ask for. Also the flower picture quality was Mehh , not much to be done with it IMO.

Have another one anon , thanks for the input.

I don't want to insult you but do they look like you would keep the card your self? They almost look like they belong in a child's game. There is really nothing that is jumping out at me saying this is an important card that I need to keep. It's just an istant reaction.
