Hello /gd/

I want to vent some things here about the industry...

First, i'm 23 yo and recently i finished my career in communications and i'm specialized in production and post production. By my own i learned through the years about graphic design and also learned the softwares that this industry uses the most (After Effects, Premiere, Audition, Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, Indesign, Corel, Flash). So i can say i'm a very prepared guy even for my age.

6 months before finishing my career i was hired as a producer, editor and animator on the best advertising agency of the city (i'm from México, sadly), i started off with $6000 pesos per month (the equivalent to 300 dollars i think, i know, it's shit) even though i already had 2 years of experience.

Then, recently one of my best friends who is a graphic designer got hired because i recommended him to the art director, everything was going well until i found out his salary, he earns $9000 pesos per month (it's still shit but for a guy like me that would be nice), problem is, HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE, AT ALL.

I'm super mad at the agency for that, everyone here literally knows how much i work (even at home) and then a new guy comes here and they give him simple tasks and give him quite more money than they do to me and my colleges.

I'm not even mad at him, good for him, i'm mad at the fucking agency.


tl;dr: My agency pays more to a newbie with no experience than to a 2 years old experienced producer.


Is there something i'm missing? Why are they paying more to a newbie?

What should i do? Prepare a good reel and gtfo to a better city or country?

How would you go about recreating this effect?

>>
>>316978
There's a software called processing which kind of lets you run code on images.
It's pretty popular for data-moshing and pixel-sorting.
Lots of people make scripts for it and upload them for anyone to play with.
Just google "processing ascii generator" or something like that
>>
>>316981
That doesn't look like an ASCII image, it's dithering.>>316981
>>
>>316978
i think paint.net has some plugins that can gen this effect. monochrome, bright/contrast adjust, then the 8/16 bit dither effect

I've always been thinking of this. What's better for body text, pure black or a dark grey? What's the difference besides ink saving?

I was curious /gd/, how many of you actually care about the colour space that you work with? What do you think about gamma-incorrect blending in a vast majority of applications, including many compositing applications used by artists such as yourselves?

And if you do muck around with colour spaces, what do they mean to you?

I get pretty annoyed with the CMYK color space (or gamut ?) for how limited it is and how many of what I consider "beautiful" colors are excluded by it. Never had much problems with Adobe RGB, so I don't really think about it
>>
Honestly, unless I'm designing for print I don't really worry about it. I don't do video or super high-profile stuff and 99.9% of normal people don't have their displays calibrated properly anyway.

Maybe I should start considering these things, though. How important is this shit when your work is only output digitally anyway?

Too much small details for a logo I think. You should try to make it more simple, with less objects.

Hi amazing anons of /gd/ - is there any way to make my path like the one on the right, without having to remove the whole path and do that specific part with the rounded pen tool?

I tried now everything and I can't even get the usual lines to appear where you drag the path to be rounded shape

>>317369
maybe add a circle stretch it and rotate it then use the pathfinder tools to subtract the shape
>>
>>317371
That sounds really hacky, is there no other way, especially because my path isn't filled?
>>
>>317371
This. Just draw the path the way you want it as part of another shape, mirror it, and subtract them from your shape
>>317378
If its quick, easy, and works, there isn't a problem. Keep it simple, stupid.

Could someone tell me exactly color balance and hue saturation works.

I'm scanning something, and it's coming out extremely yellowish for some reason, and I can't seem to fix it no matter how I mess with the hue saturation.

Top is a digital version of the image that's been on the internet.
Bottom is the version I scanned.

Is there any possible way to make the bottom one look like the top color wise? Because my scan is more crisp and clear that the digital version, but the colors are all off.

Here's the PSD.

Edit the color balance a bit. tone down the warm tones, or up the cooler colors a bit.
>>
Don't ejaculate on your comics until after you scan them.
>>
>>317389
I'm either doing it wrong, or it's just not possible to fix.
Because getting the skin tone to match on the bottom image makes everything else in the image look drastically different.

The rest of the colors are not that far off, it's just the skin that looks awful because it's so yellow.

Maybe I'll just have to make a mask around the skin areas and selectively edit those parts.

I was just hoping there would be a way that took less effort.

The style looks good, senpai but the subjects? I can see people buying the pug sticker because it's familiar and cute. The other ones? I don't know.

Very awesome, keep going on. Illustration is hard. The magic ball seems very much how it's supposed to be. Tip to improve - try to continue drawing of the graphic in this particular case of the magic ball with hands. Make arms, torso, etc, continue the drawing.

How do you create a good memorable yearbook that isn't cheesy or too simple?

>isn't cheesy
Good luck with that. Your best is to get inspiration from like, "family-friendly" brands like Target and Ikea: Big splashes of flat color, bold but minimalist type. Dynamic layout, lots of breathing room, very few ornaments.
>>
see this kind of shit (courtesy of Urban Outfitters) ? Do that.

this is if you want it to be high-effort
