is there a name for this art style? that sort of metallic font, that thing you saw a good bit in the 80s and certainly see now with Synthwave/NWOTHM bands.
no idea if its too specific and there is no name for this but I thought I'd ask for help.

You can find stuff that looks like this with a couple of search terms but I'm not the expert in aesthetics to know exactly what the genre should be called. Vintage scifi, 70's scifi, 80s psychedelic, I think sometimes you can even just search like "VHS core". Great aesthetic!

why is "synthwave" still a thing and didn't just end ~2013 after college/valerie releases?

could be recreated with gradient overlay with some bevel&emboss. maybe a bit of inner shadow

What are your honest opinions on GIMP compared to Photoshop. As in how powerful really is GIMP compared to Photoshop?

Do we have any GIMP masters in here able to weigh in on GIMP's actual potential if one commits to learning it compared to photoshop?

If you do not mind not having hyper specialized tools of premium programs, you can absolutely do quality work with this program. It was a bit less intuitive with learning this after over five years of PhotoShop, but it works well.

I grew up a poorfag and even though I'm not one anymore I still carry the lessons forced upon me by being a poorfag. That isn't the lesson of, "pirate everything" that you might think. Instead the lesson was, "Learn free software even when its harder, because it will always be available, but proprietary shit can be locked down harder anytime."
So go ahead and crack your Photoshop and Creative Cloud faggotry, ill just be here plodding away on GIMP and winning every day. And now that I can afford to support the free software autists, I will.

Opinions on Inkscape?
16 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>435693
Each has their own issues and key uses. I mainly use inkscape over illistrator due to the paywall (and professionally pirating software can get you into legal trouble).

I've learned and used illustrator for college work but never really cared for it professionally.
Inkscape's open source add on's like InkStitch and GcodePlot really go above and beyond what Illustrator's done for me even with the extended features. As a printer who needs to both design and communicate with machinery it helps to actually be able to modify what I need over a fixed payment plan. It's the Blender vs AutoDesk argument of community supported systems over developer supported ones.

Why does the logo look like a buttplug?
>>
It's great. I use inkscape mostly for doing website mockups and even the final designs sometimes when I have to do the designing myself. I also drew hundreds of logos and good knows how many other cliparts using inkscape.
>>
>>434928
great for simple works, can do something more complex, but no CMYK support
>>
>>436096
I'm not sure why its needed when printers convert it .

I would not be surprised if Adobe gets bought by Amazon at some point in the next 10 years.

I can already see the globohomo advertisements telling us how easy it is to get tablets, sketching pencils, and blue-light glasses sent directly to your "studio" (desk in the corner of your studio apartment) while you listen to Audible as you work.

it was that easy to the show to not have an effect on my life, yet I still have to see and hear about it because people keep complaining about it. I can't believe, that they fell so easily for the hate bait, while pounding their chest about "muh superior intellect" and can't see the irony.

>>436107
yeah the new loading screens seem to be tied into the Amazon LotR show. At elast aI and pS seem to be. I don't have any of the other stuff downloaded so I'm not sure if like, Audition or Bridge have LotR themed loading screens or not

I'm having a little problem and I can't find any solution. I'm a newbie myself so sorry if it's a really dumb question. I'm trying to copy a part of a manga page without resizing it, just copying it and exporting it and when I do it and move it to davinci it loses a lot of quality. Pic related is what happens. The character on the left is from the whole page and on the right is the copy paste that I did. Is there a way to not lose quality when copying pasting and exporting?

Thanks a lot.
>>
Looks like you shrinked the image. When you do that it will condense the pixels so it tends to get worse the smaller you make it. Maybe try upping the grain of an image to try to restore the resolution.

anyone care to explain where i can start to learn to draw different motives in a style like this? i´m simply not able to find a tutorial or wrap my head around it, thanks in advance
>>
is it just like a low poly design but with more lines to certain areas, to make it appear lighter?
>>
Use a deer as a mask and overlay a poly grid image. Add details like the lines though the antlers manually.

>>436079
i think theres a decent amount of 'procedural' looking stuff that is actually drawn to look that way.
in this image, the way the vertices join other vertices is irregular and deliberated used as lighting and shading

if i were going to attempt this image, id open Rhino, set an image as a background, then open grasshopper within rhino to make lists and groups of points that i could organize and control the lines and connections thy made

first thoughts

Give me one timestamp so I can see the image you want clearly.
I'm not staring at the corner of the video for as long as 11 minutes just to help you find the thing.
Going by the static screenshots posted ITT this >>435151 looks like the one.
If it's not and you want me to look further, you need to help me out.

I remember when I'm designing the assets including the backgrounds in Photoshop, everything is already being designed and preset according to the end user display screen and you just slice the jpeg file in dreamweaver and from that, navigation buttons are created: hover (where animation does it things as gifs/swf files or simply changed to different colour/outer glow), mouse on (clicking, button down, turned green), mouse off (idle).
Can anon derive the modern version from that workflow?
