>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.

i finally "released" my userstyle
Noob here. I want to make my own blog site and I'm still learning about html. I'm trying to figure out what kind of layout I want for my webpage. All I've done is dig through old geocities archives and checking out neocities for something that will keep me interested. Are there any websites I should check out to get some inspiration?

final sem of design school and i just never bothered to learn illustrator cuz i was never doing gd heavy related work but realised i probably should before my final sem starts...

can you give me like three assignments which'll give me a good grasp over various illustrator basics? the youtube tutorials look so boring .. i dont wanna make ugly vector pots and flowers ew
personally i think you are a sooner but who am i to judge

that's OK, thanks for link I'm having fun

these fuckers are the reason they can roll out lies, they have one or two news sources spewing out lies that they lap up, the real problem is rather than getting most people psychiatric help, they gave em a voice and a platform to speak on and then used em to spew and enforce the obvious bullshit they are feeding us
not all heros wear capes, but you probably do
good luck

how to rotate a line in x y or z axis on paper not 3d software but still 3d space
12 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
look man, i dont know which page you mean and all these perspective books look the same to me as i have seen alot of them, and i had hard time differentiatinf which one is more correct than which

and since im probably an untalented illiterate retard, i ll just let you do the 50 to 100 word explnation than having to waste the time browsing the pages again when i am busy drawing my favorite things and maybe get the lucky draw to do it awesome. i dont even care if t s wrong, as long as i keep getting to draw something nice. or try to


you re the smart guy
im sure you can explain to me what robert gill has for my question. or maybe he doesnt have any and all the books were all the same solutions that...obviously you havent answered here.
you are sick and drunk
go fuck off ok?
which page man

i feel like i ve seen all the pwrspective books and they gave just about enough example according to x axis/horizontally
but i dont know how to apply it vertically aka along y or z axis

and i just dont have enough confidence in generating different answer just base on so little information.
basically it the rotation works in x y and z

how do you do em?
what do you use to draw the rotated object correctly since usually the example only have one vp and it s along the horizontal line?

can you guess how would an image of an object in another angle and focuses for example a drill in front angle and back angle in wide eye lenses just using maybe information like its sizes and designs from one angle?

g o study how different lenses affect perspective

of course youre fucked if you dont understand space and perspective in the first place

once you understand the general field of distortion you can draw in the style of any lens
yea yea i do know how the lenses affect perspective : wide, birdeye, worm eye

i think i have more problem in seeing the object in another angle...espcially y or z other than x. sorry the question was too broad.

care to share how things are drawn in rotation from y or z axis (vertically and something-ly)
this is an endless wormhole
post some examples of problems you would like to solve
File: images-49.jpg (22 KB, 500x420)

so basically it s like this image, which as you can see have the objects being along y axis, and they all somehow utilize the same horizon line/eye level while moving the vanishing point and objects to generate different objecr in different position

so now what do i need is the same application of solution but for different problems:
translate x, z;
rotate x, y and z;

especially rotation since they can happen in: xy, yz, xz, and xyz all the same time. how do you that? what do you utilize?

are they dont just using one horizon line/eye level? dont they use vertical?
what about z? is it diagonal, bcause vertical, horizontal, then diagonal?

Where can I download adobe flash for free, or get a similar platform for making simple animation?
Adobe programs are free for 7 days the current is called Adobe animate, also for links ask /wsr/ or try thepiratebay / rutracker.org

Such is the boom and bust cycle.
We got a /pol/ escapee.

/gd/ is the worst board on this website.
everyone is an amateur who has no idea what he's doing, asking for shitty advice and never studied or worked in the industry.
they should close this shit.

as a professional that works part time and freelances and makes about 100k$/yr, every discussion here is utter bullshit.

only good thing is the font sharing.

why does /gd/ even exist?

Ok i apologize to those photosop kids
because PS children have taken over a thread that was mainly illustrator with elements of PS thrown in, itll never come back like it was especially now the special people feel so important in this fubar world

I work as a freelancer but only $50K per year.
My formula? 1. Work hard. 2. Be Better every day. 3. Don't whine. 4. Pick up the damn phone and make calls when you don't have work.

I come /g/ to read what the wannabe's are crying about and feel secure that losers like this will keep me in high demand:
freelancers will never be in high demand, keep coldcalling those pizza shops boomer

y2k aesthetic is ethereal/space-agey, 2000s aesthetic is warmer, more down to earth whilst being maximalist
notable phenomena include gaudily-textured cgi anthropomorphs, potato quality internet media, maximalist design cues (sometimes to the point of being cluttered and overwhelming)
