>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

This is really clean, I like the design. Currency symbols could be a little much, but I get it if that's what the client was looking for.

Working with a sparkling wine company that's interested in content - mostly photo, but they're definitely interested in design work, mostly for social media.

Feels like the typeface could be a little bolder, and some of the colors could match more, but it's clean.

Did you draw this?

I'm making a large poster to help immerse my players in a fairly popular war-game set some 40,000 years in the future. I am an absolute amateur in terms of Photoshop and graphic design in general so this kind of thing is far from my forte. That being said I have tried my best to cobble together a fairly minimalist design (mashed together the space backgrounds, cut and paste some planets).

That being said I am not sure how I should handle the text of the planets name. I am open to any and all suggestions. Also critique on any other aspect of the design is welcome, like I said, I'm pretty new to this.
>>
It looks not bad but the font you chose is inappropriate. Google "Free Sci-Fi Fonts" and try finding someone more space-y to fit with the theme.

Post results here. Good luck!
>>
>>357971
This font makes it edgy, pretty sure it's on purpose desu.

>>357967
It's not bad, but you didnt do much on it right ?Looks like a simple collage, you should try to work on the white-ish areas, way too bright. And maybe me more spacing between the letters, it's space after all.
>>
>>357971
Thanks, I'll experiment with a few different fonts! The serif font is somewhat what Im going for to fit the gothic theme of 40k.
>>357994
Yeah I haven't done a lot on it, mostly just cut and past a few different planets and tried to get their shadows matching. I'll see what I can add and adjust the kerning aswell.

There we go, changed a few things here. A few different fonts including the original font. Also I added the wings and symbol as well as moving the planets up to try and balance the space a bit more. I also added a very small stroke to both the symbols and the text to try and define it from the background a bit.

How does it look? Is the symbol too much? I'm still not completely sold on the sci-fi text as I would prefer a Gothic style, but I do like the bottom right font.
>>
>>358025
Oh and I forgot to mention that I adjusted the kerning out on the letters, I haven't touched the color balance yet though.

PS is a monopolist who killed competition (Macromedia). You think it's king because you have no alternative, with Corel & other companies being retarded. Illustrator is literally garbage.
I wouldn't mind seeing some decent competition to slap those greedy cunts in the face.

I bought it as a backup in case something goes wrong with PS
I like the live previews of gradients and features like that
I prefer photoshop
but I havent had time to really learn affinity yet
I've tinkered and its ok, but for instance I want to use illustrater for image trace,
and I want photoshop for camera raw, and a few other plugins, like Fontself which is only compatible with AI / PS
buy it once have it forever, I also affintiy Designer as a Illustrator backup

Is Affinity Photo a good replacement to Photoshop?

I'm downloading it right now. Anyone have experience using this?
