>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.

God, I wish I were in women.
what a stupid froggy cunt

there have been and there are many women in Motion Design

also she's high as fuck, druggy cunt
Because it's not as if being a graphic designer as a FUCKING WHOLE isn't hard enough in the current market and the heavy competition in the global market place. No. We NEED to carve out a special place for women just because they are women.

Die you stupid cunt.
Women are already given an easy time in this field. The arts are full of liberals.

How am I supposed to draw a headband on this bear? Trying to go for a bandana look. Absolutely cannot figure out how to draw the lines without cutting off a decent portion of the face/forehead area or making the ears wonky. Should I try to make sections of the bear's head, so I can arrange the ears differently?

here is how you shape the headband. This was what you meant? No reshaping of the head necessary. Just make sure to match the line density of the headband with the line density of the bear itself or it will look out-of-place

Hello, /gd/.

I'm new to Photoshop and I want to try some easy effects.

Looking for something easy to start with, I tried the "turn to stone" effect, thinking it would work well.

This is as far as I've gone, but the hair, eyes and eyebrows look awful.

How can I work with that to create a real petrification effect?

Any ideas/tips?

Welp, what did you do with the hair?
as I see it, it only works easily if you don't have dark areas, the essential problem being that with dark colors you need to subtract the dark surface color from the addition of surface color and shadows
where you can't, you have interpret it by hand.

I have a graphic design degree and still can't get my head around what warm.and cool times and saturated and non saturated colours means.

it's still related to warm tones (red/yellow/orange) and cool tones (blue/purple/green).

warm red will have yellow/orange undertones and cool red has blue undertones. Warm blue will have red undertones, cool blue has green. Warm yellows have red undertones and cool yellows have blue(green) undertones. Warm greens are more yellow, cool greens are more blue.
and how do I tell the difference between this and saturated vs desaturated?

imo people call "warm colors" those with high saturation and/or high brightness, while "cool colors" are those with low saturation and/or low brightness.
Search for youtube videos about this, the painting-focused ones explain it better.
The one time I thought I understood it the teacher told me I was showing saturated and desaturated colours not warm and cool.
Saturation is about how much black or white is in a color. Dark and cool refers to the undertone of a color (the hue). A pure white, gray, or black can’t be cool or warm, but it does have saturation.

this is bad and not in a cool way. Try making 12 pictures and then post your best 3 here. Then we can actually give you some useful critique.

You want to learn how to draw. That's all you needed to say. And, that can't be taught in one reply. Head over to /ic and read the sticky thread for links to get started, or go take a drawing class at a local community college.
Is the best way to get into graphic design looking for jobs and just creating portfolio examples for that specific role? I want to get into the field but have a hard time starting; not that it's daunting or anything, but its not like I naturally just design posters and websites for the sake of it

Just putting this out there in case other people have this same misconception. As someone who does web design work for Fortune 500 Companiesm this is complete BS. Have something that looks good, not neccesarily unique.
