"security risks" is the answer I got when I asked in the suggestions area. Should be back up eventually, most likely along with the credits, "coming back." Lmao...

Anyways, working on my website lately... I hate coding...

Here's a banner I designed for a tattoo shop here in town.

Menu bar for it, "compressed into single image design:"

sparty Well, I guess I'll post up some of my stuff to help get this thread rolling and encourage others to post their own work.

I did these first 4 my Freshman year when I actually had spare time and could do digital painting and photo manipulation for fun.

First thing I ever sketched w/ my Wacom tablet.

Logo for my employer.

Mock Vette article for a class.

One of my favorite pics.

My car.

And this is a short clip from my latest animation (why doesn't embed work anymore?)

tomtom88 when i design it will typically be a home or some crazy building i have a pic of in my head. for you animators out there, maya should definitely be program you all check out. insane capabilities but pretty difficult to learn.

Penguin Sweet another animator in the house.

Flick Montana Mostly I learned on 3DS Max. I did a bit of Maya as well. I learned all the basic texturing programs, but Photoshop dominates the rest. I loved After Effects. I spent more time making my videos in there than I did modelling and animating them.

I was required to learn other stuff like AutoCAD and Rhino, but I didn't get into technical drawings so they don't come into play much.

EDIT: I never used After Effects after school. It turned out not to be very practical for me.

What programs did you learn? Right now I'm taking an After Effects class and that program is AMAZING... *drool*

Flick Montana My degree is computer graphics and animation. I've worked on a lot of video game models, but texturing stuff like that isn't the same as what you did. I'd like to be able to make graphics like those, but I just don't have the skills. I had a laptop that let me draw on it with a special pen, but my drawing abilities are sub par. Regardless of whether or not anyone loves the boards, coming from another artist, you've definitely got talent. I'd still like to see more stuff.

Alexander I do a little bit of design (mostly my own business cards and website, etc.) and am trying to make it as a photographer, so I would love a thread like that. Agree on the C&C, but I would also add that improving is more important to me than feelings, so I would encourage people to tear into my stuff as long as the sole purpose is to help me improve. Too often people tend to go too soft and it's just a big ego-massaging-fest.

sparty I'll throw my opinion out there if you want it. My major at Michigan State University is Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media with an emphasis in Digital Media, Art, and Technology (whew!) so I've got a pretty solid design background.

One thing I will say about offering constructive criticism though--I think it's one of the hardest things to do, b/c as a designer, you know what it's like to have someone criticize your own work.

Hell why not, maybe call it an art thread?

I just love to see how different people express what they're thinking, and I love to see all kinds of work.

Doesn't HAVE to be Graphic Design oriented. Design can be anything.
