  • Hi friends

    I'm Gwen, a 15 year old aspiring designer. I've never been opposed to talking to people years older than me, so long as they aren't opposed to talking to someone years younger than them! I have a sardonic sensibility, a dry sense of often deployed humor, and a bad habit of swearing. I got my start when I was too young for people to believe I was capable of video editing, and then as I got in to After Effects and the more designer-y side years later I discovered that I really did like that a lot better. It's been about five years since I made the shift, and I want to really start to unhinge that ability and come in to my own in a meaningful way before I finish high school. Currently I'm trying to boost traditional art skills so there's been a lot of kinda crappy charcoal drawings over the last few months of my life.

    Don't get it wrong, though - I love to slink around and talk/joke about whatever. I wanted a forum where the dual avenues existed - one for the deep interest discussion about the mechanics and application of design, and then other areas where people post about Last Night's Episode of That TV Show.

    Hi Gwen,

    This forum used to be a lot like you just described -- designers talking shop and having fun killing a few minute every day. It was very active, but most of those forum members have stopped posting and moved on. It's still a worthwhile place, though.

    One thing that's still true is that it's a mixture of people from 15-year-olds, like yourself, to those of us who have been working in the design business for a whole lot of years. There's an equal playing field here where none of that matters, which really sort of nice.

        Thanks for the responses. The paint mask will be vinyl. The work I am focused on only entails the “Wurlitzer Music” text and graphics around the outer perimeter. I am not very good with free hand tracing....

        You don't need to rework the image before tracing.

        That said, you may become even more frustrated when you encounter the result of Image Trace. the only correct way to get this into vectors...

        I'm going to skip the vectorizing part for a minutet and go right to the stencil part.
        Are you actually cutting a stencil like out of vellum?
        Or a vinyl paint mask?
        If the first, all...
