Is there any reason why i should not use roboto on everything and call it a day?
because you're a lazy cheap ass, and everyone knows it when they look at your portfolio.
it looks cheap, it's overused in every single android app and people are kinda..... tired of it

Wtf Greeks look like this ???
Even the greeks are "to white" to exist

I don't like the style, but he is write about /pol/ putting politics into everything. This is an annoying style but it's not because of some globalist-jewish-blablablah conspiracy theory, get a life.
Yeah, they also say the exact same stuff every time. Makes discussion incredibly boring.
Goth girl looks like a bitch.
Little boy looks like a dumb little shit.
Old woman is old.
French man looks like a humorless fuckwad.

All non-white people are happy and represented in purely positive means.
You can't just have a normal-looking white guy in this art anymore. Overwhelmingly when corpos decide to put white people in their art, its white women. No happy, smiling white man enjoying his time in the diversity group.

Its not about making art where all people are shown getting along, its about giving more positive representation to only some groups. White men scary. Can't touch the white men.
Hit the nail right on the head.

I'm sure a lot of people on /gd/ went to art school, and know this kind of person all too well. The wokesters that will ignore the burning and looting of our cities but will claim that "all art is political" and how their work will be about "fighting for social justice".

They sip on their fancy coffees and act like they can be the saviors of the same people that they are above.

Awful. What you've done there is in no way glitch art youve just messed around in photoshop. OP's would of taken hours of fucking with the code to get the glitches just the way he wanted them.
A: its not ps
B: I have matrix lines in my glitch!
iirc if you're using wordpad it's pretty linear and straightforward its not that hard to guess since you can Ctrl+S, preview, go back, Ctrl+Z, etc.

You can write them in Tikz if you are brave enough.

The first graph is trivial to write. You just program where nodes should be on a grid or relative to each other and define connections.

Graphviz generates node graphs automatically. For example this is OPs graph equivalent:

digraph {

node [shape="circle"];

1 -> 2;
1 -> 5;
5 -> 4;
2 -> 3;
2 -> 5;
3 -> 4;

Art no longer embodies the values of the audience, at the advent of modernism everything was designed to advocate change while tradition was mocked.
because of women and faggots.

Hoping you can help with a product recommendation but I may be posting to the wrong board. I read the brief sticky but it doesn't really apply.

I literally just want to draw some stuff by hand and have it on the computer so that I can fix all the mistakes (I'm not good at drawing(or editing)).

My own research just shows that the options are too deep.

I don't need great quality but I feel like I'd need to see the image as I'm drawing it (pic related). I might be wrong though, I've never had the opportunity to try them out. Does anyone know of a chain that would let me try it out right now - southeast london?

I've got an old linx 1010 win10 tablet and I know a relative has an abandoned 23" all-in-one touchscreen computer (Windows 8, so pretty old). is there any way to use a stylus or something to draw on them without risk of your hand touching and ruining it?

Is there a cheap device that could be used for this? be it a tablet or peripheral (thinking around £300 absolute max).
oh, by 'chain' I mean PC world, apple store or whatever - some place that might reasonably exist nearby.

I appreciate any pointers and I hope my lack of knowledge doesn't come across like I'm trolling. I have tried looking into it but I just keep running into quite advanced solutions.

I'm leaning towards a pencil/paper/scanner but it would be better to edit and move lines as I go.

I've made an app where you can draw stuff with rotations, symmetry, a lot of brushes, palettes, etc.

The brushes then can be transformed dynamically by applying effects to them that can change the brush shape, orientation, size, filling, alignment, etc.

The palettes are dynamic color ranges that the brush will take while drawing.

It is available for iOS, Android, and Web Browser.

You can see here examples of images created with it: https://instagram.com/crazeapp

Also just a normal brush smooth line brush amongst all the craziness would be game changing. And maybe an eraser
1. Background color can be changed in Android but not yet in iOS, I haven't figured out how to do that yet
2. Working on transparent images!
3. Have you tried the "Lines" brush? Or are you looking for something different that that?
4. Eraser seems complicated for my limited understanding of iOS and Android graphics engine but is definitely possible, if other apps can do it I don't see why not!

Thanks for the feedback!
please consider making some desktop clients, i don't like webapps a lot and the mobile clients are pretty nice but them being on a mobile platform limits them a bit
Oh cool I think I had some setting on that made the the regular brush not work properly. That’s all good man, good to hear about the other stuff too. brush size appears to not work when set to lines though, not sure if I’m doing something wrong. Super cool app, would be nice to have some simplification options as someone said above. Like a line spacing option on the radial brush. As a geometric tattoo artist this could be an extremely useful tool but it’s just a bit too chaotic to be able to translate as is
Yeah the Brush Size only applies to geometric shapes, not to lines, however I don't know how to hide that option when set to Lines.

And yeah same thing with some of the parameters (Spinning, Alignment, Scaling) which works fine with the other brushes but makes the Lines brush behave funny (though sometimes it has nice results)

Thanks for the feedback!

how to create a minimalist design without being soulless ?
Understand the book and translate It in shape, colors, lettering, etc. The person who sees the book should "feel" it.

If you want to study about It, there is a good series on the TheFutur yt channel where they get some women to make some book covers. Also If you want to go minimalism route, there are some academic articles about the relationship about shape and feeling, and there is plenty of material about archetypes

Idk but here is my analysis of a great minimalist cover.

Perfrct choice of color; red is known for its association with power and love, combined with yellow creates an attention grabbing hierarchy towards the author and title.

From here we follow lines to a subtle, yet powerful representation of the book - A man overwhelmed by the weight of the world. The lines now make a radiant glow from the 'symbol' back to the title and author.

The font and look is a modern twist on Ayn's definitive style of art deco, so the cover artist paid respects to her movement while incorporating their perception.

Nostalgia aside what design did you prefer for phones?
do you prefer the newer versions of andoid/iOS, the older ones? Or maybe something else entirely (say PalmOS or Symbian)
I miss when one could easly differenciate between buttons and dialogs.
>Nostalgia aside
Nostalgia plays a role even if you do not want.
you say that but i prefer things like the windows 2000 UI even though i was born on the year 2000 and only ever touched a computer in 2012

I think that Windows Mobile Phone had the best mobile OS and it's a shame that it died. It's more convenient than all other systems.
Ios imo has the best UI
