I took some time to handpick some websites where you can find free graphic resources. More and more people are trying to bring startups to life with a low budget. I'm one of them. So that's why I decided to share with you guys a couple free resources that helped me. I Hope you find them helpful!

you forgot vecteezy
There's a bazillion sources out there, he/she didn't "forget" anything. Personally, I hate brusheezy and vecteezy.
I have also found a great resource in behance.com, people post their stuff for free DL all the time.
Also, deviantart.com, another free online art community that is full of free stuff
I've recently found dealjumbo.com. I signed up for the weekly newsletters and they regularly give a special paid vector, image, font, etc. For free.

Hello, I'll admit this is my first time coming to this board, but I need some help with Ai.

I have a project in my Intro to Graphic Arts and Design class that was due yesterday, but my teacher hadn't informed me of it (I missed the assignment date).

The project requires that we trace out sections of an image (attached in post) with the pen tool and color each section to create a "cartoony" look.

My question to you guys: Is there any fast way of doing this, perhaps without the Pen Tool? I've done a bit of research and the Magic Wand...

Yeah the fast way to do it is with the pen tool

It would take you like 20 minutes to do, why so lazy?
Thanks for the reply

I'm generally very lazy, but if that's the fastest way, that's the fastest way.

Thanks again, have a nice night.
If you're too lazy to do a 20 minute assignment, you're never going to get anywhere.

So I'm doing an animation in Illustrator for my college class (yes, it has to be Illustrator) but the problem is phantom frames. The animation was originally 400 frames but I cut it down to 200 to save time. Finished the animation and exported as a .swf by converting layers to frames, but after frame 200 it keeps playing frame 200 for 200 more frames as if frames 201-400 were still they. well. they aren't. So I need help finding out how to get rid of these phantom frames.

Each layer has only 1 sub layer (checked em' all myself)

I feel like animating in Illustrator is akin to trying to bake a cake in a Keurig.
that's cool but I don't have an option in the program I use, I just need to figure out how to fix this problem

Is that just a squashed color swapped version of the animus? Could be an OK logo. Doesn't look like a legit political party though.
Looks legitimate. I'm guessing a nationalist, more right-wing party? Eagle has connotations of America, but from a distance / ignoring that it looks like it could be a real party.

Render with Alpha, select walking ants in Photoshop, then shrink selection with whatever you need, like 1px.

I have a weird question, so I came up with a really cool Graphic for a bic lighter, and went through the process of actually putting it onto a lighter, and I wanted to put it on kickstarter because I honestly think people would fund it. However I don't know if they will approve it because of their ridiculously vague rules, what do you think? Should I even invest time into trying to get it approved or do you think they're going to kick it back because it's a lighter?

Go back to school OP; your being dumb.

That stuff is only going to help you learn how to use stuff to make stuff. Graphic design principles and a lot of other stuff is completely agnostic of the software.

I've learned some graphic design from talking with designer friends, asking them about how things are put together and whatnot. Some more from design blogs and websites. But if you're going to be serious about this, please save up some money for some proper education.

What do you mean you are trying to come up with ideas? Ideas of what? Product concepts? Things that go in your portfolio? You need to be more specific.
You should take a look at Andrew kims portfolio. Concept designs seem to get you exposure quickly. Just redesign objects that we use day to day in a clever way. Take a look at behance.net for ideas.

s h i f t
Kerning on shift need work. Lose the stroke. Bring the margins in a bit it looks way too narrow, having the bottom margin narrower than the top makes it appear unbalanced, so does all the type crammed into the bottom.
The image isn't the most interesting thing for a cover page but a suggestion would be to try placing some of the type in that big black space you have in the middle that should be where you readers eyes should be drawn to. At the moment there's really no focal point which is kinda important if this were to be on a shelf next to other magazines.

When I started studying graphic design, I was shown a YouTube video on him lamenting the overly mechanical nature of a lot of modern designers...which I kind of agree with.

Not that I'm personally into his particular design style, but he's good at what he does, and I respect the dude's work.

b3 = b1 × b1 × (1 – α2) + b2 × α2 × (1 – α1),
α3 = α1 × α2, ← I’m not sure about this.
α3 = α1 × (1 – α2) + α2 × (1 – α1), ← Perhaps this?

I appreciate your consideration. It's true, shade of the accent color I've chosen doesn't fully satisfy me whenever I look over the page and you gave me a good technical explanation why it could be so.

At the same time I want just that right bright cyan-green color value cuz it looks so fresh imo. I'm a little afraid that a darker tone would look too dull.

Meh, you could do it but I doubt it'll look good. It's about 1700x1000 right now, three times is going to give you A3 size, it's not going to look nice blown up to that size.

If you find a higher res picture, I usually print stuff like that at a copyshop, If theres a university where you live there should also be one of those.
