>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]?
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.

Why replace such an iconic brand with yet another unrecognizable piece of shit? I'm withdrawing my funding, really this just isn't going to take off.

Fucking white people will never design as good as us

Anons, i need a tool for constructig geometric shit. Is there any program (windows) that would make it reasonably easy to do the following:

>Have a grid with some arbitrary units
>Place points at any coordinates
>Draw a line through 2 points
>Make a circle centered at one point and going through another
>Find intersections between any lines and circles and place points there
>Adjust color and thickness of my lines, arcs and points
>Have layers
>Save the result as some common vector graphics format

I tried dicking around in Inkscape but i couldnt find any real way to place points and find intercections with circles.
[spoiler]Please dont send me to /wsr/ or some other hellhole[/spoiler]
maybe some other anon has more ideas, but I fear Inkscape to be your best free bet, Illustrator being the best paid (or piratable) one.

Eventho I used Inkscape a while back, I wouldn't want to miss Illustrator today.
Layers, smart option and tool solutions for convenience are some of the reasons, eventho I have very much respect for Inkscape! It's more than solid!

Functions that might help you overall (every vector program has them I think) are snapping and hexagonal grids.
Snapping of course searches for points of interest near the cursor and is biassed to land on them, while hexagonal grids help create thirds (like in your picrel).
last feature I want to mention is symmetry/mirroring, which normally allows for axial as well as rotary mirroring of your steps.
the last member of the big vector triumvirate probably comes from the affinity suite, but I have never tried it myself.
Shit man, that sucks. I got really spoiled by Euclidea so trying to do shit in Inkscape feels like the fucking app is fighting me tooth and nail on every step. Bezier curves can suck on my fucking balls.

Since I graduated from uni I was doing really well as a graphic designer working for a couple of corporate offices and doing freelance. That is, until the pandemic where I was forced to work in unrelated fields for years!

Now, I feel my work suffered for it. Before I wasn't doing very many creative things. Mostly cold internal office design. And now I have this awful gap in my resume.

I've been thinking of joining agencies and they all want to overwork me for very little pay (not in the US btw) and I'm just having a really hard time in general finding my stride again.

Has anyone else suffered this? How do I better my design in general in order to find work again in better places? I mean, technically I should be at least a Senior now, but I've fallen behind since the pandemic.

Should I have a project - per piece of art. Or should I keep up to 30 different pieces of art inside a project thumbnail? Do I lose visibility this way?

Thank you
Be good be creative and work 2 instead of one month on a pic.

except this one is fun !

Take a painting (preferably with a girl because the AI generator we're using generates girls only)


just adjust the sliders and when you see an anime girl with pretty much the same expression / hair color click on it and download the exact frame you want and shoop it over said painting. and y'know, touch it up so it looks less AI looking.

I suppose you could use

How did you get tits? They always say violates community guidelines

I'm looking for a way to covert a highly detailed image and sort of reducing the details and giving it a cool black and white aesthetic. My hunch tells me that I should just "learn to draw" but I'm gonna ask anyway.

The closest thing I could find was this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBtSVapjmLM) but I wonder if this can be pushed further with less fuzzy looking shadows.

Color reduction or threshold filter to simplify things and remove detail. After that make shapes manually. You don't need to "learn to draw" unless you're adding excess detail yourself. It's merely tracing.
Alright thanks I will look into it

It’s literally over, bros.

In a short time artificial intelligence will completely replace real artists in all forms of media.

>here won't be any need to pay artists, or even pursue art as a career.
I'm sorry but can you remind me where does the AI learn to draw from? Next time don't make a word salad if you don't know what you're talking about.

Literally every AI generator artwork that I saw so far that wasn't simply some fun patterns of space where complete horse shit.
This is the type of shit that starts radical movements against oppressive globalist bankers
I work in the tattoo industry, and most guys can make a skull or rose ect. The ones that really succeed are the ones with an individual style that noticeably sets them apart. I think people are always going to prefer something with personality.

It learns its style the same way you do.

>nobody knows WTF it is supposed to mean or why
They literally explain that shit on the site, though, right below the title?
Not really, they give some examples and vague descrptions but there's little in the way of objective factors listed that one could then use to classify anything by that term without opening themselves up to ridicule.

That's the main point of abstruse jargon like that, it creates the opportunity to laugh at non-clique members for trying to use those kinds of terms in the manner they are allegedly supposed to be used.

Who died and made that group the gatekeepers for what gets called what, anyway?
Also, genre-fication like that is really just re- IDing someone's creative work so people can feel better about copying it, as if it's just some "style" that formed naturally because of the era it came about in and belongs to anyone who wants to appropriate it.
majority of admin circle didn't found most of their "examples" and just made up these faggot names when other people found these "examples". supposedly they had internal schism of faceberg people and trannycord people, because they didn't all wanted to move to discord. some mods left and don't reference them anymore, one vanished and one got banned.
>Also, genre-fication like that is really just re- IDing someone's creative work so people can feel better about copying it, as if it's just some "style" that formed naturally because of the era it came about in and belongs to anyone who wants to appropriate it.
you're on point anon. i'm tired of millennials like them claiming to have "lived experience" of late 90s when they fucking were children so they are superior or zoomies mindlessly copying shit. they never will have clout of people who did graphic design back then and actually created trends, when being graphic designer had higher entry barrier and quality of output was higher.
No, becauz globohomo can't have anything that could be unreadable to some people. Niche audiences don't exist anymore, and any that do won't stay that way. As companies get bigger, they can't afford to compromise aesthetics for pragmatism. This style won't return outside of the underground online.
>they never will have clout of people who did graphic design back then and actually created trends, when being graphic designer had higher entry barrier and quality of output was higher.

Part of that is the fact that in those days artists an musicians and other creative types resisted being pigeonholed and as a result were strengthened by working in a broader and more challenging environment where competition improved quality and made cross- fertilization of ideas more likely and fruitful.
Now the arts have done an almost compete 180° and people jump at the opportunity to create pigeonholes they can occupy, and the smaller the better. This let's them convince themselves that being the big (or only) fish in that tiny pond is the same as having become established the way old school creators had to do it.
With the advent of cheap and easy publicity that also came with digital tools and networks, it has also allowed them to appropriate long established labels and classifications and twist their meanings beyond all comprehension, often by essentially ignoring their history and deriding anyone who calls attention to it as behind the times.
"Modern" is a good example; lots of people using the term have no clue what it means in the context of art and design and simply impose their own ignorant definition on it.

What is the application? The left one looks like a good beer coaster/match book, the right one looks more like a book cover or packaging
left. Right doesnt even really look like a logo, looks like a finished full design.
as anon said I agree that it depends on use case.
as a pure design creation I would give the right one more points though.

Hey bros, youtubefag here. I'm making a thumbnail about a boxer and his complete life regarding crime. How does it look to you guys? Going to bed, so don't expect any responses for a while. Though, this board is really slow, slow I may be here by the time I wake up and get from the gym LOL. Thank you :]
Looks familiar to the anderson silva documentary, it was called fighting in the age of lonliness.
