The Shadows are just grey, I'd make them a pale shade of red. Maybe Hex #987171 or #DDB4B4.

After a somewhat unexpected break it is once again time to share our 4chan related designs, stock up on Kernings, and make hot opinions on various /gd/ adjacent things.

It's of course also about time for the team poll. You can find that here:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf89uJighqiClekNlFtL4BEV8dzWec4zmpxiEe-YyeHLFldkA/viewform?usp=sf_link

It'll run from now until at least September 18th, perhaps longer. And yes autopilot status is dead. Tactical genes return.

That is honestly one of the worst Album covers I have ever seen. There is too much information going on, it feels overwhelming. What am I supposed to be looking at? What is the focal point?

Albums covers should be simple yet also be able to communicate a lot. Think of album covers such as the Beatles Abbey Road or Weezers 1994 Blue Album

Are you happy at your job? I used to draw a lot as a kid (mainly Goku and Spiderman, nothing gd related) and I'm wondering if graphic design is a good path for me.

case to point, i can go to sites like fiverr and spend 30-80$ for digital artwork done by pakistanis that's close enough to what you would be able to churn out in 5-10 years of effort and personal expense

GD is great to get into as long as you go into it with the right mindset-- which isnt to be an Artist but to be a problem solver. Learn to listen to your clients and solve their problems and make it look cool at the same time and you'll be a happy camper. Just dont take shit personal and you'll be ok. Eventually if you like it enough you can get into the UX side of it and earn triple the money if you're up for that...UI guys become leaders in Tech these days where the engineers just build so learn that you can be come a leader in groups if you're communicator good enough..

I like my job, but i also majored in gd in college and have been very interested in professional art my whole life. If ur still in school maybe take some classes, if not it sounds like u wont have the training to get a job in it anyway

hello frens, i want to make a youtube video from an image of an animal on a bicycle. i need the wheel to turn on a bike and for it to ride the tangent of a curve. how do i do this? or if anyone knows how, i can pay someone to do this like 50 bucks or some shit

Stupid questions thread / Questions that don't deserve their own thread

I'm trying to blur the eyes/nose on a movie in after effects. Tracked motion, applied to null object, using tracking info to drive an adjustment layer on top of eyes/nose. Due to lighting and movement, tracked movement is not precise enough, so I'm tweaking the shape and position to follow the face's perspective/position changes. I've activated keyframes on Mask Path, Mask Opacity (for when blur is not needed) and Position, see pic related.
I'm scrolling trough the video and adapting the mask's shape/position as needed, 30 seconds of footage in, I preview my work and to my surprise the mask has changed shape from what I originally set it as, and basically all my work carefully shaping the mask to the subjects face is gone. It's close to what I shaped it, but different enough to fuck me up. What am I doing wrong? What else do I need to keyframe so I actively lock the masks shape/size as desired?

tl;dr how do I lock an adjustment layer's mask's shape/size per keyframe?
