By OA are you referring to Order of the Arrow? As far as I am aware the flaps are regional, so I would assume it comes from a state in the south.

Hello, fellas.

I've created a family crest for my own family.
The winged lion represent a city in Italy where our family name came from.
The arm hanging the flag represents the founders of the city where we live now.
The stars represent the southern cross, a constellation only seen in the southern hemisphere. It also symbolizes Christianity.
The tower represents many things, but mainly the real state business.

I've designed these two models. What your opinions are?
Which one do you prefer?

Unless your family is deeply intertwined with the history of those two cities, it would be better to use symbolism more particular to you and your ancestors/relatives. You mentioned real estate, so I'm guessing that has some significance to your family. If that's the case, I think the tower has the strongest symbolism of your current design, and you should build your design around that. Honestly, the left half of the left version is a good start and could work well as is.
I'm not sure how much you know about heraldry, but if you don't already know, coats of arms (the proper name for what this is) are defined by a blazon. The blazon is a written description of the arms that uses a specific blazonry language (different languages are used in different countries, of course). I'd recommend posting to a community more focused on heraldry if you want more help.

Im pretty new to blender (and 3d stuff in general) and tried to model this thing after a picture of the thing (pic related). However I have trouble making it look good/realistic. How do you achieve this look of different plastics that dont look this flat or how would you do the lighting to achieve this look?

Furthermore, what are some good resources on how to make good looking materials?

Regarding your plastics you gotta tinker with your reflectivity settings and maps and your normal/bump maps.

It's ok, a flag has to represent something in an easy way, and if people see that flag they are going to associate it to 4chan.

>burnt eyes
Despite black text on white being a standard since the invention of paper. All those complaints of "burned eyes" from the Gutenberg bible, right?

I'd get mad, but you're just another neckbeard who will never work as a graphic designer, so it doesn't really matter what you think.
>>
>>390283
how fucking stupid are you ?

It's a standard simply because they didn't try anything else, making black paper and white ink sounds as retarded as you do.

Screens don't have the same properties than paper has, you talk shit like you're the designer this guy will never be and you don't even know the fucking differences between both of the main supports.

>making black paper and white ink sounds as retarded as you do
so much truth.
>>
White text on dark background is nearly unreadable for me. I get very intense after images of the text literally burnt in my eyes. If I look away afterwards my vision is literally streaked from the text.
So I don't understand people who claim normal light mode "burns your eyes"
>>
>>390904
I can't really stand super high contrast either be it dark-on-white or white-on-dark and I don't know why most of dark themes use pure #fff white for text.
Norm should be to tone it down to gray or a soft color because it doesn't have that burn effect and is way easier on the eyes.

Like anon said, give it some shadows and depth to give the viewer some perspective
Otherwise it just looks like an ms paint comic
My suggestion is that you use the brush tool and adjust the flow values
Also suggest that you add some landscape, just use a random picture of grass/dirt and use the stamp tool

Web Design or Motion Design?

I just want to make a lot of money with Design.
>>
It depends of how good/smart/fast you are, and where you live, among a few other things, like your networking, marketing or programming skills, rn web design is being disrupted by tools like Elementor and Squarespace plus all the people from other countries are offering really low web design services. Maybe just search for job listings in your area and compare. The places that pay the most for motion design are New York and San Francisco so a lot of people end up having to move there. The real money is usually at managing people/services or products, rather than just dealing with one client at a time, plus for 'motion design' you usually have to work on a team, very few people can do everything alone, that's if you want to work on big projects. Also a lot of web developer jobs are now requiring a lot of programming skills.

really depends on the type of person you are and where you're okay with living

if you want to work by yourself and like dealing with people by yourself go with web
if you want to work in a team for a company go with motion
neither will make much but
web if youre in rural but motion in urban

Guys what is the easiest way to darken a facial skin tone using masks in Photoshop CC 2019?

I've tried watching tutorials and guides but they all seem to be from older Photoshop CC versions with differing layouts.

I've read that masks are a helpful tool to achieve this, but when I go into quick mask mode my magic wand tool automatically selects the entire document.

Can anyone post the basic steps required on modern photoshop?

Appreciated

Interesting question. I'm going to reply even though an answer has been given:

Indesign and Illustrator can generate something like this automatically. Write the text and it simply appears (with margin for context-sensitive settings). For this kind of effect, however, Indesign is superior in terms of control, but XD will probably cover this in the near future as it already has adapted margins for objects exactly like in a DOM environment.

Photoshop may require you to use several effects in combination with the Linked Layer property. Getting Photoshop to automatically re-fit the background to the text is a lot more trickier but can be solved with re-running a macro command whenever the text has been altered in any way. It's really not suggested to do something this parametric in Photoshop however, as it needs a lot of micro managing things that function correctly only with each other. If you have to use Photoshop, just use a layer below.

The reason why it's not as intuitive to do in creative programs is because fields and objects don't need parents to be self-described.

Much like design on devices, content is put inside something. What you're looking at here is a series of attributes given to an object.

.object {
background-color: blue;
radius: n px;
}

The only decent thing on macs is hardware, they at least give you an 8-bit screen and good resolution, from the most basic product.
Software-wise they give you a decent software pack by just buying the computer, that's a pro. Also, they focus on performance, but they tend to quit support quickly.

This being said, the rest is garbage, but the worst of it its their way of treating their customers,

Hey guys, so I`m a macOS user and I just can't find a free alternative software that is like Aseprite (I tried downloading their free versions but they does not work in the latest version of macOS). I tried every single crack in the internet (they don't put the file for download so ???).
So that's it, if you know how to crack (any source) or an alternative software pls let me know.
