This one doesn't look distressed as much as a scan with part of the image in the back showing. You can print something then scan the back of the page and use it as your background. The best way to make something look like something is to do what they did.

At one point he's gotta cooperate. Don't waste too much time on it.

If he doesn't cooperate, just make the website as you would've made it, maybe change or leave out the business name, and use that for your portfolio.

To simulate reflection you need a lot of specular highlights and gradients that realistically cover the shape of a ball. The creatures could be distorted using simple warp in PS.

2. Cap line of the "T" is also above the rest of the letters following (but not as much as the "S". The bottom of the "T" is below the baseline of the letters after it.

It's optical correction. Curved caps generally rise above and below flat letters. "R" and "A" are kerned closer to even out the counterspace between letters, because the touching ends are sloped. The "G" has had the left edge flattened for the same reason.

So, no, it wouldn't look better.

You can either just fill it in in MS paint with the color picker tool. Or you can alternatively use the heal tool. A combination of both might yield good results as well. So heal away the word (like in pic related that I did on my phone) then use a semi opaque free form box with the same color as the red used in the sign. Use feathers edges so it doesn't look too artificial.

Hi, hope this is the right place.


I'm currently making a video/demonstration but would really like to change the background of my video to something different.

Better still, is it possible, as I am the only thing moving in the video, to have some sort of motion tracking which follows me and replaces the WHOLE background but still leaves me visible.

Hi /gd/, I'm about fed up with my life. At 25 with an average factory job that pays well. I've been googling around checking wheather self learning graphic design is possible. Well is it? I'm thinking of attending a gd course offered locally. It mostly covers the basics of design and you get certified on using the Adobe Creative suite.

Programs won't replace understanding of design. But you won't get a job otherwise. It's better to learn both concurrently. There's a lot of overlap in typesetting.
