>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.

Kill yourself.
It's just flat design, which I hope never goes out of style because I can't draw and this is the only style I'm capable of producing.
lmao, I bet you are not and that's why you can't recognize the screencap's greatness.
I don't like it because any lazy "designer" can do it. No need to study proportion or anything related to art.

It really hurts my eyes as there is nothing to focus on, just flatness everywhere with oversaturated colors only bearable with the occasional use of pastel colors and textures. Proportion is hard, shading is hard, studying nature is hard, mediocrity is always there to carry you.
That guy is very wrong about how Bauhaus (the actual school) came to be and what the founder's intentions were. If anything (and if you want to be pretentious about it), the guiding principle behind Bauhaus was to re-conceptualize art as the Aristotelian techne, meaning that it sought to re-unify artistry with craftsmanship.

The fact that the Bauhaus style (especially in the visual arts) ended up looking like someone's first session in MS Paint doesn't change that the idea behind it wasn't anti-traditionalist at all, let alone fucking postmodern.

So I drew this up in Gimp, how do I make it look less like pixel art? Should I just put a bit of a blur on top of it?

god damn i love this drawing OP
use thinner lineart, aka retrace it, shading+lighting, better understanding of colors. if you were trying to make it to look realistic. not sure what you were aiming for though. also fire alpaca is a good a better art software
it looks nice to me
the pixels give it personality

whatever man. you're clearly upset that you weren't able to get a job in GD and blame it on political agenda even though that's probably not the case whatsoever.

Great line animations. Did you use After Effects for it? I'll wait for your next one.
noob here
what's the swiss way of making things?
they use grids based on maths no?
Broadly speaking it's a very strict, rule-based approach to design: extensive use of grids and guidelines, geometric shapes and typefaces. If you wanna look into it I'd suggest picking up Massimo Vignelli's book (The Vignelli Canon) or just researching someone like Paul Rand and his work.

It's one of the most popular and solid approaches to design. It is a bit "old fashioned", but there's still a lot of content around it.
i think massimo and his contemporaries would say it was simple, not strict. and organized, not rule based.
I like the sound bleed on your voice or the music. Confirm if its on your voice audio

How was this image made? Is this rotoscoped with a grain filter? Is this just their animation style?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
city scape behind subject may be taken from a real image but def noty rotoscoped. rotoscope as a term typically associated with animation.
it's a traced composite.
There is a filter who can do this. But its to clean that the filter can do this. I guess it gets filter to surfaces and then revised. Filters are not this good. Unless you have a super clean photo to work with.
the colors are most likely manual adjusted, surface per surface.

its /3/ go ask them

file too large my fucking ass
looks like shit
the halo (?) doesn't fit with everything else just do a simple circle and make the crosses a different colour
mask guy needs more doodles coming off him
make middle text taller
orange and yellow parts of the middle of the explosion are really cheesy in a bad way, they would look better in the style of the outer red pointy bits
parental advisory logo looks skewed, make it shorter and smaller overall and align it more evenly

not bad honestly
