>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.

learning to draw on the pc takes 7 years, learning to draw on the pc if you cant draw 30.
But then again its also about, your goals.
many medias i consume are below my skill, but then again sometimes its about quantity not quality.
to draw? what are you talking about?
>draw on the pc
Neeger just get a drawing tablet. Even a cheap wacom will do.
Or just sketch it on paper first and then trace it on Illustrator. More than half of the designers in my old design agency do that.

I'm sick of arttards whining about AI models being trained on others' artworks. Every damn artist learns the same way - from other, better artists. Nobody just magically finds out rules of perspective, shading, colors etc. Now, when AI does it, it's suddenly "art theft". What do anons think?

Hi anons, I'm wondering if a platform like what I'm thinking of exists:
Ideally something between upwork / an image board. The idea is to allow anons who are good at proompting to make a bit of money by selling their shit to whoever.
- business posts a bounty amount and a description of an image they want (ie a logo, background graphic, art asset etc...)
- anons submit images that satisfy the description
- business chooses their favorite from the submissions within a time-limit, the anon who created the submission receives the bounty

If there's something out there that fulfills the same use-case I'd be interested in knowing about it.

Is there a guide to getting stable diffusion running? I'm retarded, thanks.

It's over for artists! Ready Made art means anyone can become an artist! I've studied for nothing! Dadaism is the death of art!
I think dadaism isn't a lost case, but letting anyone do art is
Like, you can use a banana to represent how idiotic this idea is, literraly a banana in a wall of a museum is being seen as art, but to let anyone with any shitty reason do whatever they call art and put that into a museum is just retarded, I went to a museum and saw litteral bags of hair aside of a video of the women who cut her hair and put in those bags, wtf is this supposed to criticize or mean?

Sorry anons, AI can now design better logos than you lot. Cope and seethe

>Will AI ever get logos.

A staggering number of "real" artists/designers don't "get" logos.
And ironically enough the main reason they don't is because they share a computer's lack of critical thinking that causes them both to just churn out product without questioning the need for it in the first place, or what other options exist to solve the problem that a logo will ostensibly solve.

And in cases where they might be conditioned (programmed) to double check with the person giving the input, the computer doesn't get all butthurt or roll its eyes and seethe when you answer affirmatively to the question "Are you *sure* you want to do that?" the way so many human artists do.
Because they're so ego driven and self centered, most artists/designers give up on asking those kinds of challenging questions, and function like shitty doctors who just hand out pills without caring what the underlying problem is.

None of the reeeing over this would exist if it wasn't AI. Content aware fill didn't destroy the photography industry.

Here's why anti-ai cucks annoy me, this piece was made in 2020, before AI was a thing. This piece made heavy usage of digital photo manipulation tools, especially the content aware fill tool. This art piece would really not be possible without digital art tools.

No one would say "this isn't art", they might not say it's very good, but the debate on whether art can be created using digital tools was won long ago, it's completely normal to see digital paintings in the same light as physical ones, both are pieces of art, both are unique mediums.

When photography came out, it was seen in the same way. It was going to kill artists, the portrait painting jobs are going to disappear! It's not really art! And now over 100 years later photography is, much like the digital art that came after it, is seen as just another creative medium.

If you aren't looking at these myriad of AI tools and thinking "damn I can really create some insane things and do more with less time, people and energy, how can I use this to further my art?" and instead you're thinking "What about my dream of working in sweatshop-like conditions drawing animation cells for Disney? What about my dream of making Corporate Memphis art for Google?"

Then you are not a creative, you aren't an artist. We have lost the word illustrator, that is a word better suited for the people so wept with concern, they are the portrait painters,

Hey /gd/

I have a question, if I produce images using illegal versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, do these images have any metadata that can be tracked to see if they were illegally produced?

and how do I remove such metadata, I tried googling this shit but it doesn't come up with any real answers on this topic

I'm just getting to the point of completing my 4th as well as 5th gd project for my portfolio and want to upload them all to Behance but also still not cause any problems for potential employers.


Also post your questions/queries

Hello! Thanks for the mockup!!
She likes the same things girls her age do (22) : taking pictures, Rick and morty, Netflix... I think that's all, really
Her bedroom is white, with mauve curtains and a bunch of pictures and posters (black Rick and morty and one piece ones) on her walls, and pictures surrounding her mirror. She's also got some kind of red closet. I've got another special gift for her so I don't plan to spend that much for this specific wood boat project. I've thought of buying varnish give a solid look to the boat.

It wasn't me. Just a kind anon giving his piece of mind.

Thanks for the advice!! The anchor and window framing are good ideas. I'll look it up. If this thread is still around I'll let you guys know what I've made.

hrmm. not much for me to work with there.
I don't know to what extend incorporate these exact specifics into the design...?

but here you go. maybe this idea sparks you inspiration? I wanted to indicate a rick and morty character design based on her. (lol this is the archetypical 22 year old to me it seems)
the text could say your and her name. or chick and boaty. or something 'stupid' like that. (I mean the show IS pretty ironic).

admittedly could be a terrible idea as well. depends on her and your kind of relationship I guess.
I certainly know people who would absolutely love something like that, but also those that would consider it cringe.
I want to add that something like that would probably age worse than a more neutral (elegant?) approach - like the simple red one I uploaded earlier or the tug boat idea of that other anon. I think it would be cool if it were timeless enough to be kept forever in her boat or even living room.

How did he do it? What software would one need to draw fictional atlases like this one? Is Gimp good enough? Looks like there are five tones for the oceans with varying borders, and five tones for elevation on land, with rivers, lakes and political borders. Any tutorials or resources that help show how to design atlases like this one?

>128MB ram requirement

Do you think I'm rich?! How would you ever run this?
I think that's video ram for your GPU.
It depends on what the end goal is and the people involved working on it. If it’s a big poster, details like dimensions and stuff are predetermined. This is a simple setting of canvas resolution (usually inches) on your program - assuming it’s not gonna be printed - for which then you’d also receive info on bleed, printer color settings, etc.

I don’t know if this was made by just one person but I know that there are usually a few people working on this with sections of work broken up. Again depends on the person, company, and restraints/deadlines.

Based on the simple shapes though, they look like vectors, so this was most likely created with Adobe illustrator, Corel software, or Inkscape. The text is just type on a path stuff.

For workflow, you could simply import an existing map into illustrator, trace the outline over with the pen tool, resize those vector shapes, and begin working on the details.
Holy shit, thank you.

Thoughts on this design im working on.
Its supposed to be dark gothic and pixelated.
Any suggestions what to put on it or what to fix

lol you dont?

thats much less bad

'conceptually' i dont understand why some parts of the image can have smaller pixels than other parts? its an inconsistency that i find irritating but most wont care.

you should take this version and put it through iterations:

roses at the four corners
the lace work all around the edge
one great rose windw behind everything
on giant rose window all pixealed by itsself with the name
then maybe settle on some choices to finalize this round
Huge improvement but I think the reaper should be enlarged.
The white line could be from misalignment of your layers.
What color t-shirt?
Black shirt
I would consider losing the texture then. As your substrate is already black, in all likelihood the black background you used here will be a mismatch, therefore only the white layer should be exported when the artwork is finalized.
