what font is this? :)
Im not sure if I should post this here or on /ic/, but this is more a gimp question than an art question so I guess its more relevant here.
pic related is my first attempt at rotoscoping. Made it in gimp using the path tool and stroke path to outline the silhouette frame by frame. I guess rotoscoping is just an inherently time consuming task, but is there a more efficient method than this? Is gimp even the right program to use for this sort of thing?
I really love the look of rotoscoped animation, and Id love to make some more gifs like this, but even just this sloppy 40 frame animation took me about an hour to make.
Oh, I should also say I dont have a tablet so tracing by hand isn't really an option for me right now.
thanks for the tip, googling "rotoscoping in after effects" lead me to
and this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcS58LD_Hg8
so it looks like after effects is exactly what Im looking for. thanks anon.

I know its not really graphic design but I am desperately looking for any info on this chair. Name/Brand/Designer whatever. Anything would help! Thanks guys
Hi guys, i'm looking for a free raster and vector graphic tool with tablet support, extra points if it's open source.
Hey there everyone!
So, I was wondering if someone of you had some photoshop skills enough to make these blue lines more like "neon", emanating a little light (sorta like Tron).
It's for my cinema 4d project, but the only good template I could find it's this. But I can't add this some neon effect
Select the blue.
Select > Modify > feather
On a new layer, hit fill
Fade that/set transparency
Duplicate that layer
Play around with it until you get to what you want.
Maybe add a lighter blue interior (Select > contract > feather)
Work in layers, not on a flattened image
Whenever I do a neon-ish effect I often prefer to give it a solid white fill because it's brightest, and then give it an outer glow and slight inner glow in the color I want the "light" to be.
Ok so this is the first album art I have ever made for someone else. The guy I sent it to told me it was too unprofessional and said we can't do business. Can you guys tell me what I'm doing wrong?
The text coudl be better. The positioning, for example. Maybe the title could be on the top part and the musicians on the bottom, that way it wouldn't feel so cluttered.
Make the white lines thinner.
You could even add a very subtle gradient on the white letters, a gray to white one. Remember to keep it subtle. I don't like the transparency. Make it 100% opacity and change the color to a medium gray if you don't want it to be entirely white.
Use two fonts: one for the authors and another one for the title of the album. Right now, that TTT part has that different font and I don't really know why. If anything, I'd change the font used for the names.
Try writing the names or everything in caps, see what it looks like. Maybe it looks better that way.
That hollow font with the inner glow... it's not bad, but I don't like it at all. And, are those lines equally distant from the text?
I hope I'm not forgetting anything, but right now, that's all I think could be improved. Sorry for my english btw.
The client sounds like a dick. Design is a process, back and forth. Show a client three ROUGH IDEAS at first, NOT FINISHED ART. Then you see what they think, et cetera. Work from there. THOU SHALT NEVER ACCEPT THINE FIRST IDEA.
Here's a variation based on your design, which I spent about two minutes on. Make the artwork BIGGER ("Keep it simple, make it big" -- Jerry Garcia), also lose the static centered type. Pump it up, make it more interesting.
Critique this please
And would it be necessary to completely redo it?

I'm a web designer and considering becoming a freelancer in my city. I want to make some business cards for myself but I've never done it before. Could you tell me the basics or some tips? Do I make them using Illustrator or PS? Should I save the files as an .eps?
Don't use photos on your cards.
It's often tasteless and you don't have much control over the colours printed.
I would also very much advise you on working with a vector based program.
At least when creating your logo, as you probably want to use it on letters or flyers etc.
Programs like Ai are not very well fitted for lettering and formatting, so use Ps or even better Id for that.
All right guys what do you think of that?
My guess is they didn't plagiarize, both are just so uncreative and lazy that they came up with similar shit.
I mean we've all been there, you jizz a first draft, you can't think of anything else so you try to perfect it.
No matter what you do, you can polish a turd but it will never shine.
Typography, and the understanding of it, is the highest form of good graphic design.
If you haven't set type by hand or studied the nuances of letterform, this will be a language lost on you.
"To suggest that the way we use Helvetica is an easy way out typographically is ridiculous. Simply ridiculous. We spend an enormous amount of time spacing, lining, and positioning type. The fact that we use only a small variety of typefaces demands a certain discipline, a skill precision, a focus on the finer details. It’s certainly not a different-typeface-for-every-occasion attitude. Now, that would be an easy way out."
—Experimental Jetset (Marieke Sotlk, Danny van den Dungen, Erwin Brinkers)
>implying the only way to "get" typography is to fuck around with an archaic printing press.
And the only way to really understand barbecue is to spear a large predator and roast it over a brushfire.
Can Kanye popularize "derelicte" in graphic design as he did in fashion?

How to start with web design?
What should I learn in order to ultimately become a web designer? I'm pretty familiar with PS and done some minor shit like banners before but I don't really know what to do now.
Any resources/usefull websites/books/whatever?
you can start by watching some cs50 vids
this one is really helpful (he has tons of tutorials)
i recommend you try one of those "training" sites eg khan academy+the app, etc.
I learned by making sites in photoshop and handcoding them, dreamweaver really helped learn all the commands from html/css, now I know them all by heart and how they effect eacother.
