Hi /gd/

I want to re-create the effects of the cover of Forgot About Dre by Dr. Dre in Photoshop CS6. The font as closest I could get seems to be 'Russell Square' for the "Dr. Dre" I use 275 point font, "Featuring Eminem" I use 90 point font, and "Forgot About Dre" I use 80 point font with color matching from the sampling tool. My guess is that there is also some Layer Effects on the top text fonts like embossing?. Any tips?

I'm not sure how to recreate the Dr. Dre 'face' image on the right side of the image. It seems like its an 8-bit image in grayscale but I've loaded a face in, put it in grayscale, already at 8 bit and can't get the 'distorted shadow' effect. I'm sure this is simple to do as the cover came from '99.

Parental Advisory sticker is a simple copy layer and transform to the dimensions of the image.

Any tips and hints would be appreciated!
Whooaaaa!!! I had no idea Illustrator could do so much more! Thanks for this... it seems to do a pretty good effect on the Dr. Dre face but I'm not sure Illustrator was even around in 99 so Illustrator could be overkill even haha
>font points
this is useless info, it only makes sense inside your original image size
>8-bits of color depth
this isn't what you think it is
while at 8-bit you'll get some color banding but nothing close to what you are trying to achieve

easy way
>duplicate the layer a couple of times
>add threshold effect with different values to each of them
>change their opacity/blending-modes so you can see all of them (linear dodge/multiply should work depending if your layers are bright/dark respectively)

I can look up Y2K Aesthetic and get the only tumblr page that seems to exist, but how can I find other sources for this kind of stuff?
Gonna be posting more examples
browse the archive

this is the 3rd thread on ysk aesthetic so I would say you also need to browse the catalog
I jus noticed, I just posted without looking bc I didn't think it'd be that popular here, I don't browse this board at all anymore
yes - tacky. What's with all this y2k stuff? There's nothing inherently interesting about this stuff other than the fact that it reflects the limitations of the technology at the time

I don't know if this is the right board for this kind of question or discussion, but on this topic my most burning question is this:

is there any way use one of these tapestries in your interior design without it looking like some shit for brains college freshman fantasy dorm?

I've used these for bed spreads before and that works for me, but hang it on the wall and that + my carpet is too much pattern. I'm just trying to make my place bright colorful with red/orange/purple as the main colors but also be east Asian (so like south Asian colors but with a more Japanese zen aesthetic or Korean aesthetic) and I happen to have 3 different reddish varieties of these on hand plus a dumpster diving budget

an interpretive graphic of my apartment based on what I have and what I think I want so far (some furniture not incluced i.e. couch cusions, also an unfinished parts of the room are not included, the grey vertical line where an end table is is a corner, the grey box framed in orange is an air conditioner)
the tv area with the picture above it is supposed to be like a tokonoma with a straight-to-the-ceiling cat tower as the beam for one side, the shelf under the window does not yet exist, I have a shelf there but it needs support so I thought I'd ad columns (2x2's) and make them look like Korean temple pillars (all my studies so far are for Japanese folk/farm home sensibilities, I don't even know for sure what Korean's build temples for but I know I like the colors)

Hello /gd/, I usually stick to /mu/ but I wanted to ask you guys for your input. As an artist, I need not only a recognizable sound but a recognizable branding. Pic related Is the logo I've created for my career. I make loud raw punk rap/trap metal/alternative rap under the pseudonym "Yung Ugly Bastard" so I figured for a logo, a porno mag would be a pretty unique and good idea. What I'm here to ask is do you think the logo is good? Do you think it is interesting enough to catch your eye while also being memorable? Please give me your thoughts on this.

TL;DR: Is my logo good?

you're going to leave this place worse off than you started. most people here are retarded (as if you didn't know that) and will give you the worst advice possible.

That being said, I think your concerns don't reflect the music you're making. Those genres are as you described - raw, and you want your artwork to reflect that. If you ask me, it does that already.

Yeah more than likely I'm just going to keep the original. The new one (suggested by /gd/) is way too formal and by the books
Before designing a logo, you should think about these things
-What message are you trying to convey and in what style?(Think brand relations, think consistency )?
-Can my logo be used across multiple platforms? In other words, is it versatile?
-Is it memorable? Appropriate?
All these sorts of things

What I can tell you is that you can do better
Raw does not mean child's play

If I were you I would use a single line for my design,get rid of all the unnecessary infi, and show, not tell that it is a porn mag.

Basically a single line that shows
1.Your name
2.A nude girl

Unironically the best advice I've gotten in this thread. Rather than just trying to "fix" it to your wants, you actually give me a better idea of how to design a logo to better fit my needs. I'll keep this in mind anon. I really do appreciate this, thank you
this has to be a fucking troll thread, wtf

Perhaps she needs some help from some wizards to bring her attention again?


are there realtors that specialize in poorfag office space $200-400?
Office space for $400?
Good luck with that
I suggest that you rent out a room instead
just work from home. if you have another employee make them move in with you.

just find a climate controlled storage space near you with plugs and dont say anything to them. WALA $40/mo office space

Where do you get your Images from that you can actually use for graphics you want to sell?

I really like the designs of these guys:

do you have any idea where they get their sources from?
Use pixabay bro . I do and a guy contacted me for buying my design on Instagram.
Second that. There are a few decent royalty free sites, but pixabay has some vectors, high res photos, and they're accumulating video clips too.

do wacom screen tablets (namely the wacom one) need a screen protector? Are they really made to Withstand years of rubbing with a stylus without scratching? Or do people just accept scratches?

any recommended brand of screen protector? with minimal distortion and cloudiness, and a toothy feel

Google uses this particular style of illustration a lot, does it have a name? How do i destroy it?

A studio recently reached out to buy my typeface, for a redesign of a public park and will be using my typeface for the logo. (Meaning that the logo will be on their website which has around 10k visits per month and will painted in big letters on a wall in the park, as well as on the letterhead and paper etc.) Any idea what to do? What to charge? How to write a license myself etc.
go ask on typography forums dumbass, give more details and compare answers before taking a decision
