  1. Sketching Idea When You Have Just a Mouse

    Not all the time will you have paper on hand to sketch your idea, or a scanner or camera to get that image into Xara to vector out. Or sometimes, like my situation, your hand just doesn't really...

    Re: Designer Fonts

    There's a decent selection of 'look alikes' for some of the more popular/timeless typefaces. Some of the imitations are better than others, but I've used a couple of them. I still recommend getting...

    Re: Logo Templet Mockup

    I didn't think the OP was showing off the logo, but using premade graphics in order to set up a template of a presentation packet for potential clients. Nothing wrong here, me thinks. It looks...
  4. Breakbeat Record Label Logo (graff stylee)

    126086

    This was done for another breakbeat hardcore label. Their original logo was a stencil that just says '4 the core' but they explicitly said they came to me for some graffiti style, so I did...

    The only font used is the label-maker font. All other lettering is by hand. :)

    Femme fatle? Voldemorte? I guess? The hand is of a person who's not on the level in modern society, so nails...i felt was a good way of conveying 'evil' or 'not normal'. It's a societal reflection...
  7. Re: Album Cover WIP (Warning: Cringy Content/Mild Violence)

    Your sentiments are mine. I feel like it's a case by case basis whether groups or layers are more appropriate. I like having both at my disposal. I think the 'professional' consensus is layers,...

    Re: Skyrocket WIP

    I love Wings3D. I wish I had more time to play with it. It's so good. I miss Nendo...I bought it back in the day, but have since lost my copy of it and it's no longer available. Wings is a good...

    Re: First Logo

    When dealing with a client, you really have to think 4 or 5 steps ahead.

    This is professional advice and you can ignore it or take part of it or all of it, but just know I had to pay a lot of...

    Graff 'logo' for Silence Eluwei

    More work for the hardcore DJ's popping up out of nowhere (not really, they were always there, but the music style seems to be gaining popularity again)

    Colors were the DJ's choice, as were the...

    Re: First Logo

    You can also stylize the glyphs as well, i.e. keep them close together and add new ways to 'separate them', which was my personal suggestion. :) There's more than one way to do it. :)

    Okay, some critiques. Don't worry, these are things I'd tell anyone, so I'm not just being mean to you. :)

    1.) It's TJ's Bike & Moped, i.e. TJBM, but the TJBM looks like NBM, which conflicts...
  14. Re: Album Cover WIP (Warning: Cringy Content/Mild Violence)

    Lately I'm finding it useful to make a layer and lock it with a hand drawn image from paper with 30% transparency above the actual image I'm vectoring. :) I do typically, though, just immediately...
  15. Re: Album Cover WIP (Warning: Cringy Content/Mild Violence)

    Yeah, it is, but in this case, I know the audience and they'll already know it's Abyss. One of the freedoms you get with artistic license when you're not worrying about that too much. Plus, the...

    I just want to say 'cloud' is a trendy thing and we all know what happens to trends. Personally, SAAS models make me sick. I prefer to buy once, own forever. Constant updates means instability in...

    Re: From the ground up.

    I would love them to keep the interface as is and simply make it multiplatform and utilize the GPU for even more groundbreaking possibilites. I still think Xara, even with it's limitations, is by...

    Re: First Stereogram of the New Year!

    Is this a separate xara program you used to make this or are you just insane and managed to create this in normal Xara P+GD? And yes, I can see the image. "A scooner IS a sailboat, stupid!" :P

    I'm a fan of pure shapes/gradients/transparencies without using bitmaps. I think it allows for creativity in styling the subject matter. You've done very well here, and I even enjoy the 'glowing'...

    Artistic License vs. Technical Ability

    One thing I've noticed as of late...and maybe some of you have noticed it too, is that there seems to be an uptick of 'technical instruction' over artistic instruction.
