My mum asked me to design her a logo for her newly opening beauty salon and i stupidly agreed
Basically all i want is a little bit of criticism and ideas
and if your really nice (I hope you are) you can even add to what I've already come up with
Can somebody please fix up the Logo
Try strarting over. Then, draw up some basic sketches of what the business does and embodies, write these things down, too. Then, with all that different stuff, try to draw something that looks good. To me, that just looks like a shifty Barbie logo
>still have to apply your own lipstick
start over m8
maybe a stll from this gif
This. Don't just go with the first thing that comes in your mind. Take the name of the business, come up with synonyms, related words, etc. As many words as you can. Then go from there.
Also are you are you using Photoshop or Illustrator? Cause the line quality looks like shit. You need to design logos in illustrator so that can work for business cards, or something else small, or blown up into a billboard and not lose quality. Also her tit looks fucking weird. But I would just throw the whole thing out and start over. It's not going anywhere.
Wherever I see shadows being used, I always get the feel the designer is not just using the Drop Shadow effect but something more to give the object dimension and weight, almost like a bevel, but I can never put my finger on it, and I certainly don't know how to recreate it. Anyone know any standard procedures in doing this?
I was just being an asshole, but yes it's something pretty easy to achieve. The shadows shown on the original image are way better but you get the ideia..
For the text you set its opacity to 0% and apply dropshadows (on the new version of photoshop you can simply add a new layer of shadows in the layer style panel by pressing the button "+" if you're using an older version of PS simply duplicate the text layer and change it for a bigger and weaker shadow (for this example i used 3 shadows, so you would need 3 text layers in this case) .
By the way i really like his color pallette , you might wanna check this book "Color Matching: Using Color in Graphic Design" it has some interessting color combinations.
I hope i've helped anon
Bumping this into a design-related (or art related) video thread.
>Aaron Draplin: Vectors Are Free

My friend has decided to release a mixtape. when i saw his mixtape cover that he had paid someone else in school too make, i thought he had got ripped off so i made a new one. can you tell me what i should improve?
Take out the text on the shirt on the left and it's actually pretty great.
The one on the right is... not so great. Fonts contrast each other in a really bad way and the photo just seems like an afterthought with how blurry it is.
Keep the one on the left. The guy knew what he was doing with modern design, especially dealing in music.
I'm new to video editing and want to replicate this style on the two characters in the webm.
Does anyone know what the artstyle is called or know any techniques to achieve it? I'm fairly competent with photoshop but I'm currently learning how to use sony vegas pro for a project I have in mind involving this.
That CG was done by rendering software that had heavy light/shadows to create severe shadows on the characters. Then the light part is made transparent so the shadows are what's left.
If you're trying to do this (shittily) with video, theoretically this should work.
I would shoot black-and-white in low-key lighting (so, bright keylight) on a well-lit background (so you can distinguish shadows on the subject from background). That will create figures with sharp contrast (see pic, but light the background so subject's shadows don't bleed to background) Then increase threshold in post under 'levels' or something so you just get white/black, then key out the white.
Otherwise you can learn how to do CG or animate.
What's the difference between a vector and others? Is it really needed?
Vector are mathematical creation. "The area between these points must be this color".
Bitmap is a grid. "The pixel at A1 is black, A2 is black, A3 is grey, etc"
As suck vectors can be scaled up (ie, to cover a plane or building) or down (an icon) without any issues.
Scaling up the bitmaps will result in a pixelated look (the squares get bigger) and scalling down will loose details and sharpess (the squares only get so small, afterward the software removes some of them).
Both are good, but they have different strenght and applications.
Open this.. This is a bitmap /raster image press ctrl+ five times on your browser to zoom it
Now do the same with this one
This second one is a vector file, noticed the difference?
i drew the paintbrush logo
pls r8 gud
Hi guys, i leave it to you. Do your best ^^
1) What's the best way to add a texture to a simple background colour or gradient?
2) How would I achieve an effect like the background of this login screen?
I've been a kinda crappy hobbyist for a while, and I'd like to get better. This type of effect looks pretty good, and is somewhat commonly used.
pretty easy to do in PS, grab your base image as a base layer and slap a new layer ontop, fill it with color of your choice, set layer to 'overlay' :^) for a more uniform look set the base image as black and white
it can be easy inspired by that.
create a form first. after that, change the padding styles. then add a background with linear-gradient (you can see on the stackoverflow)
you should know the css and I guess, you already know.
You can use the linear gradient effect in css.
> pretty easy to do in PS,
yes but he should write this in html/css, I guess
Curious how 4chan feels about this..
I have a folder filled with 300 images and videos of content I made. Such as drawings/photoshops/animations. Where do I take off with this? I'm a degenerate and I don't know how to get people to recognize me. I'll post some samples of shit I did. I might be posting photoshits I did for acquaintances so I'll atleast censor /part/ of their faces.
It looks all wrong, I know. I was just thinking of making a dumb presentation on what could've made Super Smash Bros. for Wii U better.
I want to get more involved in video editing as a hobby. What're some good video editing programs? doesn't need to be anything too fancy, would just like some more options. I'm using movie maker right now, but it's pretty shit and doesn't have many options to do stuff, although i dig the simplicity of it.
any other advice regarding video editing would be appreciated too :)
ITT: We post aesthetic/esthetic stuff.
i wish there was a board called aesthetics that would i guess be a mix of /wg/ /p/ /fa/ /gd/ and maybe /s/ and maybe /tv/, with some more architecture
Is there a way to create an animated brush? You know that way where you create a pattern, put it on the brush tool in illustrator, then you can paint with a pattern? How would you do that if the pattern is animated?
>pic related, it might not be a sine curve, it might just be fire, flowing water, or whatever non-monochromatic brush you want it to be.
Here, a cringeworthy sketch of how its supposed to look, say my pattern is the one in the gif, and I want to make it a brush.. to be the path of anything I want it to be, in this example, a part of a circumference.
So is there anyway to do this? or
So, after I started thinking about it, and made the ends match the start of the symbols, I notice that you can't warp symbols in flash, which is total bullshit, therefore, I can't make a very good corner, and things start to overlap for less wide stuff.
Also, I had another idea of merely making lots of brushes, where every brush is a frame, and then putting it all together, but that sounds like tedious work, is there not an easier way?
The symbols don't wrap, so you can't make tight curves with it. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
