Okay, so I'm making a logo for a friend, and obviously I came here for help when I couldn't do it.
What they want is this bow:
But the left half to be the colors of http://prntscr.com/acv122 obviously the darkest replaces the darkest shade of blue and so on.
And for the right half to be dark, sort of a dark grey so that you can distinguish the different shades.
Would also like the grey to sort of "leak or drip" onto the pink half. I've racked my brains and can't figure out a way to achieve this ( mostly the drip part )
Any amazing person out there able to give me some steps to accomplish this?
how the fuck do I learn to make amazing logos?
I already can draw anime waifus.
It's like any other skill.
The more you do it and the more you analyze/study the work of other great logo designers the better you will get at it.
I came across a logo I had made 5 years ago and laughed because it was such shit. Now I get paid $500 a day to crank out decent (not great) logos. I'm thinking 5 years from now I'll be pretty good.
Also, another tip: good logo design is more about knowing what not to do rather than knowing what to do.
Hi /gd/, getting really tired of taking photos of my sketches, sending them over, getting bad resolution, weird proportions etc.
So I ask, what is/are the best scanners that petty coins will get me. As cheap + good as possible please.
Right now I am sitting and doing pixelart tilesets á la Gameboy style in Photoshop. And something happened. I don't know if I touched a button of some kind or if something happened when my computer died for lack of power.
The problem is that my cursor is off. Somehow when I pain the pixels some pixelspots don't get filled, and Have to do drastic movements to find the spot that regieters where the pixel is. And most of the time it is not even on the pixel itself.
It seems to be whole vertical pixel lines that are hard to paint on.
I really don't know if this is a place I can ask for directions but I'm pulling my hair here and I know that this place have people with alot of knowledge.
I'm going to start with something painfully obvious, but have you maybe altered brush settings? Are you using a tablet? , do you need to play about with tablet config?, if not save, restart the computer. Are you using a 'shit' tablet.. shit mouse? is it a hardware or software problem. ^^
You probably adjusted your grid size by accident, unless you are using the native 1x1 pixel grid.
Try turning off snapping of any kind, especially snapping to grid.
If your cursor graphic itself changed, caps lock can toggle between a generic tool icon and an accurate crosshair mode.
I am making a logo for a project to visually represent it. We are building a cage and making art in it for 7 days.
This is my first attempt, it reads "KUNST IM KÄFIG" in the bars.
Things I already know about:
It is supposed to be hard to read.
The logo doesn't have to work in monochromatic.
Some of you hate gradients, so do I most of the time, but I think it works in this case.
i think there's a rule somewhere about not using the text inside of the logo. anyways here's some ideas:
- make the lines thinner on top
- add the little circle on top so it would look more like a cage (is it a cage right?)
- don't use color until you have finish (it helps seeing the balance/negative spaces)
- the font doesn't help
stuff that supposed to be the focal point needs more detail for the sake of contrast and to make it less obvious you're an entry lever painter. the lava / smoke look like a fingerpainting made by 5 year old.
also, this isn't fine arts board. go to /ic/ for this stuff.
Having trouble figuring out what this font is in the original 1997 poster...
Any ideas of what it is or what it's based off of?
Hi, i was looking for this on pdf or ebook, but I cant find it. If you know where i can find it, it would be great
The book is Hand to type : Scripts, Hand-Lettering and Calligraphy by jan middendorp
Pic related, its the cover.
How do you make this in photoshop?
Time for the thesis paper for my Bachelors and it's about Scandinavian Graphic Design (Yeah, suck it over-popularized Bauhaus, De Stijl, Swiss and American style). So help me out with my survey bros.
Which country are you from?
How many years of experience (studies, work, general interest etc.) in graphic design do you have?
How would you describe Scandinavian graphic design and how is this demonstrated in the style?
What comes to your mind when speaking of Scandinavian graphic design in regards to:
e) Use of photos vs. illustrations?
How does the Scandinavian graphic design style differentiate from the style you can see in your country?
How much impact do you believe Scandinavian graphic design has had on graphic design?
Quite interesting, I'll bite.
faded but contrasty colors next to light browns or grey, mostly on a white background. Basic shapes with no outline or gradient.
Basically : flat design
New and innovative, evolution from the standard romand characters. More personnality and a lot of variation with their accented characters.
Diamonds, square, triangles.
>e) Use of photos vs. illustrations?
A hella lot of illustrations.
>How does the Scandinavian graphic design style differentiate from the style you can see in your country?
Feels more pretentions /or sophisticated. It fit a modern product/brand and appeal to a young audience.
>How much impact do you believe Scandinavian graphic design has had on graphic design?
A comeback of the post-modernism.
Scandinavian design is a pretty lame subject, people write a lot about Bauhaus because there is a lot to write about
incredibly this is one of the least cancerous request thread on this board, so ill answer I guess
>a)regular colors ? They like bright primaries.
>c)simple ? idk
>d)minimal minimal minimal
>e)illustration all the time, pretty nice ones too (often very flat)
Scandinavian design is a lot more minimalist and savy. the common man there has a lot more design education than in the rest of the world, and so the norm for commercial design is a lot higher.
Not that much impact history-wise I think. They have great design agencies, but I know very few of them who do work on an international scale.
Photoshop is giving me grief. I just finished making a map for a game and went to save it as a JPG, but it wanted to save it with a shit ton of empty white space added all around. I've been googling solutions for the past hour and a half with nothing but wasted time to show for it.
Pictured is the "layer edge" for the art board. None of the layers in the art board go out that far to the left or top.
I recently made some vaporwave-esque artworks and Wallpapers. Could you rate or analyze my work and give me tips on how to improve my style?
I'd appreciate to see some of your stuff, too.
My photoshop skills are very limited and was hoping someone might be able to help me edit an image of cletus.
What I was hoping to achieve was this image of cletus but instead of holding a pig, he is holding a basket of gherkins and so that it's easily identifiable, having a "Gherkin's" label on the basket.
I was hoping to remove the writing on the top and bottom of the image too. If anyone can help me achieve this, I would be very grateful.
For the top and bottom text, you can just erase what is outside the circle, using a big brush size to get rid of most of it, then zooming in and using a smaller brush for the smaller details
you will notice that some of the text is inside the circle (the "the" of the slack-jewed yokel), to remove this, select the layer and right-click>select pixels. Then use the color picker to select the color of the shirt, the use the paintbrush and paint over the text.
Now try and find a picture of your gerkin shit that is a similar shape to the pig (you could make one, but you seem to stupid to be able to do that). Add it in a new layer then scale (re-size) it to a size a bit bigger than the pig. Move it so it covers as much of the pig as possible without looking too retarded.
Now, set the Gerkin layer to a low opacity/transparency (about 50% should be fine) so you can see through to the original pic. Then use the eraser tool to erase where the gerkin is over the guys arm. After that is done, reset the opacity to 100%
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Honestly I was hoping someone could photoshop the picture for me and re-upload it since my skills are so limited. Reading your reply was like a foreign language to me haha
So I need to design a poster thats similar to Christopher Wool's work and I need to design it around a quote. I seriously can't think of anything, so I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a quote or phrase similar to what's used in these two separate designs by Christopher Wool. Thankyou :)
Just grab some punkish lyrics

or whatever floats your boat
