    Hey guys...got a question.

    It seems like recently I've been doing a lot of projects where I need certain textures. For example..leather, marble, metal... For the life of me I can't find any place to find them or how to make them...realisticly anyway. I've tried Photoshop and Illustrator but it's very time consuming to look or try to make them. In the meantime I've been misc stuff on my scanner to get the look I'm looking for...but marble...am I supposed to lay a gravestone on my scanner or what?


    Where do I find/buy some textures???

    There are some decent tutorials on tutorialoutpost.com under textures.

    There are also some links in the Resources section of the forum under "The Ultimate Resource Thread"

      Use a thin piece of marble, like a single floor tile from a home improvement store, place felt discs at the corners so you don't scratch the glass. Scanners make excellent close up lenses. Great for getting pictures of circuit boards, or anything with a shallow depth of field. Only problem is loss of control over lighting. In the past I've made blocks with double sided tape applied to one of the vertical faces - useful for getting unbalanced objects to stay still for the scanner. Don't underestimate the power of the scanner.

        I've got a client that designed his own logo and simply wanted me to put it together. He only drew the outline and told me what colors to use. But I'm not sure if I can send this to him. Should I tell...

        Thanks for your feedback!
        I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

        Hi, I'm very new to design and just starting out, so I'd appreciate some critique/advice/guidance on some book covers I made for a friend, and how I can improve as a designer.

        Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

        I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
        This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...
