>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.

Are you happy at your job? I used to draw a lot as a kid (mainly Goku and Spiderman, nothing gd related) and I'm wondering if graphic design is a good path for me.

watch this you naive retard, before you waste your inheritance/parents money

i wish you the best, but unless your daddy's rich, it is statistically unlikely that you will end up having stable high paying job as an animator or illustrator, especially if your perception and hands on experience with 'art' is anime fanart drawings in your childhood.
there are handful of people who sustain themselves from professionally doing illustration and animation and the rest are replaced with third world labor. computer graphics are sweatshop labor worth close to nothing..

at least learn javascript or something.
>>
>>420033
case to point, i can go to sites like fiverr and spend 30-80$ for digital artwork done by pakistanis that's close enough to what you would be able to churn out in 5-10 years of effort and personal expense

GD is great to get into as long as you go into it with the right mindset-- which isnt to be an Artist but to be a problem solver. Learn to listen to your clients and solve their problems and make it look cool at the same time and you'll be a happy camper. Just dont take shit personal and you'll be ok. Eventually if you like it enough you can get into the UX side of it and earn triple the money if you're up for that...UI guys become leaders in Tech these days where the engineers just build so learn that you can be come a leader in groups if you're communicator good enough..

What size and placement of the bear graphic looks the best?

Small
>Good use of negative space
>Probably the cheapest

Medium
>Good middle-ground approach
>Possibly boring (??)

Large
>Bold statement
>Too big (?)
>Expensive (??)

>>420855
price wise they are likely all similar
also who wants just a bear on their van, placement kinda depends on text placement and why they want a bear in the first place.

Go back to your teacher and tell them to stop giving you bullshit assignments
>>
>>420855
second one but a lot further back
>>
with this design you should go with medium, the other designs look way out of proportion imo

big. you see a van from distance
the medium size might look better in the example because its an abstract. given the context, the bigger the better
everything else will just be an indistinguishable mess

just go look at a road sign up close, its massive

Back when design wasn't infected by the globohomo and tech was seen as a 'hope' for the future and actually looked futuristic, unlike the flat/minimal style we see today

hello frens, i want to make a youtube video from an image of an animal on a bicycle. i need the wheel to turn on a bike and for it to ride the tangent of a curve. how do i do this? or if anyone knows how, i can pay someone to do this like 50 bucks or some shit

Stupid questions thread / Questions that don't deserve their own thread

I'm trying to blur the eyes/nose on a movie in after effects. Tracked motion, applied to null object, using tracking info to drive an adjustment layer on top of eyes/nose. Due to lighting and movement, tracked movement is not precise enough, so I'm tweaking the shape and position to follow the face's perspective/position changes. I've activated keyframes on Mask Path, Mask Opacity (for when blur is not needed) and Position, see pic related.
I'm scrolling trough the video and adapting the mask's shape/position as needed, 30 seconds of footage in, I preview my work and to my surprise the mask has changed shape from what I originally set it as, and basically all my work carefully shaping the mask to the subjects face is gone. It's close to what I shaped it, but different enough to fuck me up. What am I doing wrong? What else do I need to keyframe so I actively lock the masks shape/size as desired?

tl;dr how do I lock an adjustment layer's mask's shape/size per keyframe?
