Alright, I made the logo in Photoshop earlier but now I'm remaking it in Illustrator even though I don't know how to use it. lol

So anyway, I was wondering how to connect two different letters and how to give it this look:

As long as the two objects have the same fill and no stroke, just move them over eachother and they will look connected. If you still want a stroke, join the two objects, copy it, increase the size a little and change the fill to the color you want the "Stroke" to be.

I'm not super awesome at Photoshop, but I'm trying to learn. I'll return to this thread when I am super awesome at it.

In the case of the R connecting to the S, I would just extend the length of it's leg by copying and pasting, and distort the end bit so it curves.

As it is at the moment the two letters look a bit spaced apart. How about instead of extending the leg of the R, move the S upwards and left so that the upper curve of the S fuses with the leg of the R?

If you want, I can PM a link for an Illustrator for Dummies torrent. It has everything you need.


I think i already have something like that but don't have the patience to go trough it. I'm not totally awkward with illustrator tho but I'm very used to photoshop and it just isn't the same :P

this is something i made a few years back with PS... pretty big image

How did you do that frost?

First you make a mid sized rectangular selection in the center of the image on another layer. Head to filter and render "clouds" not "Difference Clouds"

Use the levels adjustment tool to get rid of the dark areas within the clouds so that leaves you with grey and white colors. Then Transform/scale the clouds to completely cover the entire image. So now you should have 2 layers: The cloud layer on top and the original image on the bottom.

With the cloud layer selected, double click it to open the layer style menu. In there look down to where it says Blend if and you'll have two bars with adjustable sliders. The bottom one labeled Underlying layer is the one you want to adjust.

Use the black slider and alt/option click on it to split the black triangle slider in half and ajdust it to your taste in each of the channels "Red" "Blue" and "Green"

http://www.russellbrown.com/tips_tech.html The tutorial my prof. used is probably in this site. If you can't find it, PM me and I'll upload it somewhere for you. (They are in quicktime format)

glad this kinda thread came along!

Alright, so I think it looks okay but I need to emboss and bevel both the text and the square and I'm not sure how to in Illustrator. Sorry for asking so many simple questions but I barely ever use Illustrator.
This is what I have:

EDIT: Nevermind. I just exported it to Photoshop and did it.

I think you should move the R up and over so its a smoother transition into the S. As for the effects, I'm not that experienced in Illustrator.

I mean, I think it would better if you smoothed out the meeting point of the R and the S. Right now, the joint looks pretty radical. If you move the R up and to the right, the tail would meet the S at a less extreme angle.

Alternatively, you could move the R all the way down so the tail meets the tail of the S.

I had some questions about this



How do I make it look slightly more three dimensional with minimal time and effort? I thought about making the darks and lights on the velociraptor more extreme, or adding a shade or two. Is there a way I can select all of a single color in the picture and change it to a different color?

Replace color in the image menu will swap colours round. And to add more shading, try using the burn tool at low opacity and high spread.

This too. In fact probably better this way, because that way you can erase stuff and all that. I dunno why I didn't say that, it's the method I use most

S'all good man. Both are perfectly legitimate, I'd just suggest duplicating the layer you're working on for the burn and dodge tools. @ the guy who asked the question.

Set the opacity of the brush to 0% should work. I don't use GIMP and I'm not on Photoshop at the moment.

So I've kinda got into making some digital art recently whilst my headphones are screwed and I can't make music. This is something I knocked out today after feeling a bit homesick



Anybody else make digital art? I realize the thread is dead. I'm using Cinema 4d, Illustrator and Photoshop at the moment.
#74
DONT LET THIS THREAD DIE!



Here are some things that I made for a series of images that are supposed to come together as a story from start to finish. I am still kiinnnd of working on them, although that is debatable. There are two others that could pass for being complete but they don't look right to me, and I cant figure out how to fix them


Anyway, here are the two that I am happy with:






Each one is made of approximately 30 photos each; nothing except minor debris effects, and the planet in the first image were painted in.
#76
I do stuff with GIMP sometimes, but it's all sort of fetishy and pretty all much either NSFW for specific people, and/or probably generally uninteresting to most users here.

I also make goofy grindcore band logos. I might post some of those later.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#78
thats awesome


this is something that I finished yesterday:



Im doing a series of images about the "birth" of an intelligent robot: this is the first one and is a first person perspective of the moment the robot first opens his eyes. probably going to do about 3 more

This was assembled in photoshop from about 34 different images

Wish this thread would fill up with people. This is something I made yesterday to use as the Facebook cover photo for my blog. Incidentally based on the exact same idea as the thing I made 7 months ago...two posts up there

For some god awful reason, I couldn't get my floor to catch shadows properly but here it is

(Invalid img)

I like the effect it gives without shadows...like something's not quite 100% but you can't place it.

Anyway, something I threw together a while ago. Mainly just meant to be a rough guideline for a tattoo design but I ended up tweaking it a bit.
