    Yeah, I think that it is one of reasons why there's so much junk out there, but it's still pretty much the reality of the situation.

    I really liked what you just said, but isn't that the reason why a lot of these crappy website builders exist? (eg: Godaddy website builder, wix, weebly, e.t.c.). I do see your point...

    I think it is by and large assumed that just about any designer submitting a resume is occasionally putting in extra time doing freelance here and there.

    Photoshop is a raster program. You want a vector program, like Corel Draw, Illustrator, or Freehand.

    Welcome to the forum. Please read these important threads posted here. They will explain a lot about how the forum runs, from the rules and regulations to frequently discussed topics to the background on some of our lingo and inside jokes.

    I hope you enjoy yourself!

      I think if your using Photoshop, look at going with Illustrator for your vectors ... Unless of course you have experience in the other programs out there ...

        I actually created the art in your first link: http://www.hatchillustration.com/tec..._mvagusta.html
        and I do use only photoshop for line work. It gives me a bit more of a hand done feel and is more natural to work in than Illustrator. The key to keeping the lines crisp is to make sure you draw in Paths, keep the size and resolution fairly high and to stoke the paths in a pure brush with no softness to it. I hope this helps!

          Great illustrations, Jim!
          I've been trying to find some quality tutorials and resources about technical illustration, mainly isometric drawings. I tried drawing an isometric vehicle using orthographic projections and SSR, but can't seem to skew the images to get the right perspective. Not as easy as putting a cube together

            ? If you're using only paths (vectors)... why Photoshop? AI has so many other tools for vector drawing.

            If you want high rez, crisp edge -- raster will never beat vector. And if you want high rez raster as an option, just rasterize the AI file.

              Selector there dredged up a year and a half old thread. Doubtful Jim frequents the GDF.

                Attack of the zombie threads this weekend. Thanks for catching that PD.

                Ever wonder when (of maybe it's already happened) somebody's going to question an old post of a deceased member?

                Hmm... you know, for a lot of the stuff that we get over and over during the years (the vector/raster workflow is a great example) we could probably leave posthumous postings that would work fine. Maybe if Kool put on his thinking zomberro, he could figure out a way adding this as a forum feature.

                  Didn't realize it was over a year old thread. Wonder what's the oldest, the very first post is still live?

                    Pretty sure it's either a Mac vs PC or Pie vs Cake debate.

                      We had some sort of server disaster way back that wiped out the first 50,000 posts. However I know the very first post was from the founder Allen welcoming people to his brand new forum. The second post was the Mac vs PC debate

                        Why do people care so much about old threads being revisited? If the thread is open anyone is free to reply to it no matter how ancient it may be.

                        Of course pointing out that a thread is old when people are replying to ancient questions is perfectly acceptable

                          I don't know of any deceased members Bob, although statically there must be a bunch of them.
