The A needs to be away from the magnifying
glass, or in front.

Since the acronym is ARC, you could create
some symbolism by incorporating some form
of arc that could represent some form of
learning curve or something.

I definitely think there should be a literal arc
in the logo and no sloppy fonts.
>>
>>272713
the arc symbolism is very much overused i think and i would like to avoid it if possible, thanks for the learning curve idea.

Good point, using an arc to represent an arc is a bit simple lol

Why does Photoshop leak memory so fucking fast when I use my pen tablet?

After like half an hour of drawing the memory usage climbs up to 2 GB usage and then the application goes all haywire, giving an error whenever I try to click File->Save and other actions. It's not like I'm doing something retarded like creating dozens of layers and tons of effects and plugins, I'm just using the brush and eraser tools.

I don't have this issue with other programs like Krita and SAI.

Should I just settle for GIMP and figure out its weird interface?

The memory seems to only climb up if I'm drawing with the pen. It's as if each pen stroke is worth 100MB or some shit. Regular image ediiting with just the mouse doesn't seem to be an issue.

You need to vetorize it in order to enlarge it without pixelating it.
Bad news OP. That image is full of tiny details and you won't be able to auto-trace it with vector magic or whatever software, it needs to be done manually and that's a painfuly slow and boring task. No sane person will do that for free.
I searched the image and found stores selling hoodies with the design, just buy one, it will be easier.
Also, here you have a better resolution version of it.

In need of some Illustrator assistance

The top is text and the bottom is that same
text converted to curves. I need the text
converted to curves but without the overlaps
that can been in the bottom text.

I have a feeling rasterizing the text may be the
answer but doing that reduces the quality to
an unusable state.

Okay, so I was trying something in Ai before just to learn how to do it and to get familiar with the program. I didn't think the task I chose was hard and that it is a good idea for learning the basics. However, I cannot find anything useful on the Adobe page since I have no idea what to look for. When I try, their names for tools and workflows are confusing to me and, ironically, it is not really well illustrated. I have failed so often now that I am fucking mad. I really need someone to explain the best practice how to accomplish this:

I used the letter W that you see in pic related. I chose it because it has intersections. As you can see, as of now it is still just flat. What I wanted to do is add a kind of 3D effect to it by giving it a gradient and some depth (will recolor, it's a standard gradient I just used for the exercise).
To achieve this, I want the paths to go above each other, so that the "W" kind of looks like a spring, if you know what I mean.

For example, in the middle where the strokes meet and just merge, I want the path coming from the left to be above the part that comes back down. (That one should go below said line.) At the end to the right, where it is merging again, I want the path to go above itself once more, creating a round tip instead of the flat merge.

I hope someone understands what I mean by that and can help me out here. I just don't get how the tools work and how I can cut the letter into shapes. Hell, I don't even know how to make the closed paths that are already there longer without fucking everything up.

(I realize sometimes you can copy/paste but with drop shadows, gradients or opacity involved, I would rather not copy it multiple times to create the "illusion". Also, it's about getting to know the program, so a workaround is fine as long as it's generally applicable.)
I can't believe I don't even understand how to extend/cut an existing, closed path. Sorry that I am apparently THIS dumb.

Thank you all, guys!

damn blog. tldr? did you tried with a 3d software? you can do it with c4d in seconds (spline + extrude nurbs or sweep nurbs) however illustrator 3d extrude & bevel could give more control.

Not my first language so I kind of scrambled. Anyway, I found the solution how to do it. Line tool to "connect" the paths (although they are still both seperate entities then).
Then Pathfinder, divide the shapes and you're pretty much done alread except for the color. Found multiple ways but none of the others worked consistently for each part of the letter. Don't know if this is the best practice, though.

Also thanks for your suggestion but this is mostly about learning to work with paths, not so much about the final result. Looks rad though!
