>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?
The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.

>What programs do I need to get started?
Adobe Illustrator
Corel Draw

Adobe Photoshop


>Which program is the best for X?
It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.

Need artists to start an experimental internet movement
Hi! We are searching for artists who wish to push the boundaries of creativity to take part in an experiment. This will be a new approach to music and art production
Each of us creates a virtual avatar/stage name detached from our main careers and real identities, then uploads sketches/illustrations/music sections/stems/layers and incomplete projects to a single permanent cloud library. Others can improve/add/incorporate/wreck any of the stuff in the library until full projects branch out edit after edit. Our style won't be defined by the individual artists' technique, but by the collective creation process. We believe this process allows more creative freedom, or at least a different type of freedom.
The products must be anonymous (faceless, to be exact – only the virtual avatar is credited) and not for sale. As long as these two points are respected, any technique or topic – no matter how unethical or offensive – is permitted.
We want to challenge history's way of doing things by creating and showing valuable art outside the standard paradigms.

If you are interested here's the full description w/ discord link:

You don't need CS or PS or Corel or even the painful proof of concept known as the GIMP... I have almost twenty years under my belt first with Corel then Photoshop and nowadays I do literally all my shopping with which had some other name before I think but is basically a web-based clone of Photoshop with only a few minor interface changes. Most key shortcuts are identical, toolbars are nearly identical. Unless you're rich on RAM but poor on bandwidth, I say go dumb terminal and let their servers do the lifting.

I have attached a photograph, however its contents are not directly connected to the written subject matter of this text-post. Ahoy!

Like, the capital letter E would have inner corners that are sharp right angles, but the ends of each prong would be rounded off and circular. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Almost always used for titles? Looks a little bit like pic related but not quite?

Game resource/faction icons
If any of you guys have ever played a trading/collectible card game (or living/unique card game), or a miniatures game, or board game, or even certain types of video game, you may be familiar with the kind of iconography used to represent resources or factions in these games. Some of them are well-done, eye-catching, etc. Some are pretty bad. Some even have multiple versions, depending on the edition of the game they're in (or sub-faction, etc). Post your favorites, least favorites, and fan-made icons here. Or just discuss how terrible they are and how you'd do a better job.
Posting the classic 5 colors of Magic: the Gathering , and the second edition of the Ravnican Guild emblems to start.

Scale model required for 3D printing
I'm looking for individuals experienced with 3D modelling and CAD software who are interested in paid work.
Essentially the job is to create a scale model of a specific vehicle from image reference. The difficult part is that it's imperative that the vehicle is to scale, as specific measurements of various body components will be required for use in reproduction. Be in either physical blueprint reference or 3D printing.
The ultimate goal is to be able to replicate body panels from the file you will create.
Good money in it if you can deliver on claims.
Any other sources to find this talent appreciated.

Any successful freelancers out there?
I have been unemployed since march and have been taking freelance projects ever since. Now I am using upwork and, doing mainly logos . I have barely been bringing in 500 a week after the rediculous 20% profit that this site takes from me, on top of paying for connects... and every client turns out to be such a fucking piece of shit that claims that I have to do more work for them than was actually initially agreed upon. Still have perfect reviews on there though, but I am growing tired of working with several very small budget clients that expect $5000 value work. I feel like I want to give up, I get so angry all the time.

What are the next steps I can take to working with higher budget clients, or working off of a different platform or no platform at all? Or can anyone shed any light on if freelancing get's literally any better than this?

Taking the plunge
So after several mental breakdowns and looking inward to find what makes me the most happy, I've decided to move on from my non-art job and follow my passion.

Although I have no degree in GD, I do have some experience:
- I've been making layouts for music CDs, cassettes, etc. in a knockoff program called PhotoStudio for years (think illustrator without the ability to save .PNGs and a hard cap on font size at 72pt.)
- I could whip up a portfolio of those layouts pretty easily, granted it'd be a fairly skinny portfolio
- I've at least had working exposure to all the "main" programs: illustrator, Photoshop, inkscape, GIMP, etc. (but nothing in 3D)
- I passed one college course for GD fundamentals; back then I hated it but I also hated college in general, so I think the risk of not liking it again is low & worth it

Given that intel, honestly, how fucked am I and how can I mitigate any consequences that come with being this fucked?

Turning people into stone with Photoshop - HOW?
Hello, /gd/.

I'm new to Photoshop and I want to try some easy effects.

Looking for something easy to start with, I tried the "turn to stone" effect, thinking it would work well.

This is as far as I've gone, but the hair, eyes and eyebrows look awful.

How can I work with that to create a real petrification effect?

Any ideas/tips?

I'm extremely retarded and I have no idea what to fucking call this. I don't know terms, so it's basically impossible to figure out.

All I'm trying to do is get rid of that section of white that's sticking out of the blue circle. In photoshop it's pretty easy to do with selection, layers, and clipping but when I see these in inkscape they don't work like how I'd expect them to, so I think something is lost in translation.

Explain me colour psychology [/clr-psy/]
Photo on 2020-08-10 at 12.28 PM
I just got these Staedtler fineliners in 10 colours and I want to use them for my note taking, but I don't know what I should use each colour for (e.g. important details, minor details, main points, diagrams, conclusions). I thought you guys would probably know about colour psychology, so I decided to ask here: What is the psychological effect of reading in each of these colours/what elements of my notes should I use each colour for? Also this could be a colour psychology general I guess. Sorry if this is not the sort of post meant for this board, I don't come here often.

Graphics Tablets / Pen Input Interfaces
Hello, /gd/. I'm looking for your thoughts on pen tablets.

/ic/ had proven to be mostly useless due to constant shit flinging and everyone calling everyone else a shill. I'd like to upgrade my old Wacom Bamboo, and I'm planning to do a number of general creative things; drawing/painting, sculpting, and learning graphic design. So my questions to you all are as follows:

> Which make or model do you use? What about it do you like, and can/would you recommend it to someone else?
> Are the brands other than Wacom worthwhile? If you use a Huion, XP-Pen or something similar, are you happy with your make/model?
I've seen a lot of mixed thoughts on non-Wacom branded tablets, though I'm inclined to believe they're probably fine. What are models that match or beat Intuos in terms of features for around the same price (maybe less?)

Thanks in advance for your input.

good correct lineart = math/geometry???
hi im trywanna to draw stuff with correct lineart but im poor and i dont hab enough electricity for too many ctrl z and im tredishionelist becuz my fegget lecterer said to go back basic and also internet and also art master on utube uwu and fongzhu deshun skool...

yeah that s hard to type...

ok basically i need to make linearts that are perspective correct and mathemathical precise... objects involved usually, drills, bike with turned wheels, plane propeller, from lower angles and variety of perspective.

so subject involved is
object x angles x perspective

so i need a mathemathical solution or geometry algortythm that i can use to do this, procedures if you may.... a general solutions to achieve maximum precision and true to life image Lineart. just lineart, no shading whatsoever, just thick thin lines. collections of lines to make a proportionally right image.

i heard descriptive geometry is da stuff but i couldnt know precisely how to use it as they seem conplicated but precise enough

i hope for the direction

Should I re-consider graphic design?
Hi anons. I'm currently debating whether or not I should leave Graphic design?
when getting my degree i had a bad experience in my design school. I was working so much I couldn't make a good portfolio and classmates were hardcore passive aggressive towards me. Teachers and classmates told me to 're-consider' my career path and that 'i was so behind' it was really discouraging. I want to say it wasn't a 'bad' experience but it made me wonder if graphic design was for me.

plus a lot of my classmates were a lot more advanced then I was so that was just very discouraging. even the teachers treated me differently and i thought teachers are there to help encourage you and they did the opposite.

Overall I am just really really unmotivated to pursue design anymore. I don't want to do a 9 to 5 job working in a cubicle. I think freelancing might be fine but I am not sure. i want to move to japan to see if i can re-kindle my love of design but the work culture in Japan is potentially even more difficult then american work culture.

are there any anons in a similar situation? Is there some path I can follow as a graphic designer that doesn't involve me being with petty co-workers, long hours, or crapppy bosses?

there was an anon years ago who told me that it was possible to recreate the pixels from an alpha channel, ie anon takes screenshot, makes waifu on transparent background, then you can take that and "heal" the image back to its original
pic related is what i want to do, try and heal the holes while not losing the overal transparency if that makes sense
it'd probably end up being the same amount of work as just editing it frame by frame but i still want to see if this does work
i was able to completely reheal each frame by duplicating the layer below it, then merging it top down piece by piece until the entire gif was fixed but i dont want to pixel by pixel delete 35 frames for transparency

Video editing software suggestions?

I'm a small YouTube guy looking to step up my editing game.

I enjoy openshot as it is free and simple go use, but, it is about as powerful as a wristwatch.

Video pad is much better, but still feels limited. It makes it possible to easily overlay video footage so for corner cam on video game content etc..

But, I want to get into more complicated stuff, like sequencing animations over top of video footage, like RA the rugged man style face swapping,

Is this adobe aftereffects? Or premiere?

I guess what I'm hoping to get from this thread is some open discussion about which programs are best for more advanced video editing, subtitles, 3d text for intro content and shit (blender)

Any experience or insight would be blesses, I'm not entirely versed myself but I'm happy to share what I know :)

java promo
Hi, I'm 17 and interested in Software UI Design/Human-Computer Science. I've been designing in Photoshop lately, and after looking at some UI for inspiration I came across UI designs of 2011 and 2012, specifically in the iOS 6/Mac OS X Mountain Lion era of UI Design. Looking at it, many things were apparent.

> The sheer creativity of these UI
> How every single UI was unique from each other, unlike flat UI of today which I find repetitive
> The beautiful detail in every element of the UI whether it be the icons, or the interface
> The 'fun' factor
> Visual Eyecandy

Looking around, I see everyone furiously against skeuomorphism but I find it beautiful. What're your thoughts, 4chan?

Pic related, I designed a mock advertisement in the skeuomorphic style.

Post Client "Experiences"

>need his shitty logo for an animation
>tell him in the kindest way possible that he should get a new logo done, properly this time, since this is hard to work with and impossible to ever print
>he said previously that he got his current design from some fiverr designer who charged him like 500$ for literal shit and disappeared from the site
>you can obviously see that his "logo" is just a 400x400 cutout from an internet picture, doesn't even have a transparent version, absolute dogshit quality overall
>he defends his logo fiercly, even though he called the designs he got from fiverr horrible himself, says his cousin was able to animate it and he printed it on a hat
>mfw I imagine him wearing a hat with a pixelated, half-assed cut out illustration from the internet which is 400x400
>mfw I need to care about his insecurities because of a 30$ animation

How do I avoid putting my Clients in a defensive position? I'm just trying to help and advise them in their own best interest but they become agressive when you explain to them why their design is objectively shit, I just couldn't go further without mentioning it because I don't want anyone to see that the animation was made by me and possibly asociating the logo design with my work.

Using measured shapes for a logo design
How does someone know what size and shape you want to use for measuring and designing?

I don't really know how to explain it. I'll post more samples, but basically, how does the designer know what exact size and shape to use to create the overall design? How do you measure your design in such a way?

I know about the Golden Ratio and things like that, so is that it?

Are there any books for this kind of stuff?
If anyone just recommends some sources to watch or read I'd really appreciate it.

Where you are good at?
forrest and smoke
Lets discuss where you are best in drawing worst in drawing and where you want to become better at, maybe we can help each other. Everyone is welcome.

I start: naming theme in distending order,

I am best at: light sources, clouds, trees, water, stone, girlys. smoke .

That's a pure skill list level, not a what looks best level. Smoke is for example much more easy as female humans, there for it will look better. Stone is pretty hard for example if you don't wanna make an average gray hidden by vegetation stone.

I personally want to become better at drawing girly's.

This smoke is btw. drown its not a overplayed picture of smoke or a generated one.

Tedious, low-level tasks you have to do
I'd like to ask professionals here what you think are tedious, relatively low-skill tasks you encounter while doing design work, that you wish you could delegate to someone else, so you can focus one more important stuff.

I have a chance to be mentored by a relative, who is the head of an established and successful design and branding agency. I'd like to know how i can immediately be of use to this person.

Basically, what are tasks of little importance you'd rather not spend your time on, that you wish you had someone reliable to do for you?

I need a little bit of help, my friends. I am trying to take a series of images and extract color palettes from them. Every online tool I have found to do this never gives me the exact colors in the image when checked manually. I have never really done this before, so I can't tell whether this is by design or that these tools are just shit. Does anyone know a good tool that will give me the exact colors in the images, or can maybe explain to me why this is happening?

Adding gradient transparency to an image
Starting from pic related, I would like to "add" a "vertical transparency gradient" so that the code becomes progressively transparent with every line. I would them overlay the resulting image over a sciency-looking background.

How do I go about doing that? I'm using GIMP and I can't find how to add this transparency gradient.

Help very much appreciated, thanks!
