. Academy of Drawn and Graphic Art .

Credit to Phantasm.Angel for this cool idea!

About:
Welcome to the Academy of Graphic Arts! This is where you can learn all about graphic art. Apart from the tutorials and resource guides here, we’re now also offering more private tutoring. This program is set in place so that hopefully anyone can learn to create art.

What is it?
The Academy of Graphic Art specialises in a variety of fields ranging from banners, avis, tags, wallpapers and animation! If it's got graphics, it can be done here! Using a master/apprentice system, we will pair experienced people with those who are inexperienced as a way to further your skills. Along the way if you make friends, good on you. It’s heaps more fun that way. n__n

Rules
All standard PE2K rules apply
No spamming, flaming or cursing
Stick to the topic - we want to be professional :3
Use this thread for discussion, questions and to sign up
Have fun!

Masters:
These are the people that are going to help the apprentices learn. Remember that just because you are labelled as a master doesn’t mean you can boss around anyone else and make them do your bidding. This is a place of learning and to work with others. Having ideas to share is the basis of this program and, as such, constant communication is vital. We need those who are going to be active and not just participate for a couple of days and then leave. Your job is to teach and inform, then step back and admire your handiwork. Don’t control others, either; share an idea and then help if they get stuck.

Apprentices:
You’re here to learn, and we respect that. You need to communicate and listen to your masters when they tell you something. That doesn’t mean if they say “jump off a cliff” you have to do it, just respect them; they’re there to guide you. Whether you take in their advice or not is up to you, but it would be best to try everything out just for the sake of learning. And remember: If a master teaches you a specific style, you are not to go around using that style in your banners/avis etc. You must discover your own style for yourself. A style is part of someone and stealing that is not tolerated. Use the techniques; don't steal the style.

Tutorials and Trial Runs:
Once you apprentices think you’ve gotten the hang of things, you should make a banner/avi/tag etc. and get your master to C+CC it for you, while you keep their advice in mind. Keep repeating this process, as well as trialling new techniques along the way and you’re sure to get better in no time!

You can sign up and discuss in this thread, but keep the chat to the point – we don’t want needless spamming.

Golden rule, remember to communicate and have fun!

===================================

Warnings and Notes:

1.) If a master is bullying you in a matter, report to me or Ana.
2.) Each master can take on up to 5 apprentices, but no more. If you think you can handle it, go for it.
MASTERS
1 report = Master loses apprentice
2 reports = Master loses apprentice (the new one) and can not ask for a new one for a week
3 reports = You are no longer a Master, and can not sign up to be one any longer
Apprentice
1 report = Apprentice loses Master
2 reports = Apprentice loses Master (new one) and can not ask for a new one in a week
3 reports = You're no longer an apprentice, and can not sign up to be one anymore

What will make you immediately kicked out
1.) Stealing work - from each or just in general. Don't do it. >_>
2.) Not helping at all with each other or getting along at all. This is supposed to be fun.
3.) Having more than one master is kinda ... well, hogging people, and pretty unfair for some. (This is if having more than one for the same art board thing.)

Warnings thanks to Anastasia-R

So that post was completely pointless, then. xD

I think the whole amount-of-apprentices thing should depend on the person. If they feel they can take more than one I say let me them.

You must first past three grueling and painful initiations before you can lead the way of the graphical arts. Fail to do so, and you shall perish in the depths of the apprentice world.

This would really help new people, but I think it'll die in two months, give or take a week. :[
Sign me up as a master, although I'd rather help these shamefulchimpz apprentices with digital work, seeing as the majority of the masters will be chock full of... masters... helping with signatures/tags/etc.

Hey, hey. ^^ Me too.

I'm hoping it's also a way to get the art boards more active. We need to liven things up a bit.

And then you also get to meet lots of people and make new friends AND learn cool techniques! XD

Only two people in about two months. And then a new member comes along and makes a gallery and gets at least seven comments and I'm like: >:O, D':, and -_-.

Gem N Ems

That reminds me, I don't actually have a graphic gallery of my own. xD

Well...maybe they're trying to make the new member welcome? ^^'

Sight of the Stars
08-08-2009, 06:47 AM

Well, I think that they should make everyone feel welcome, even if they've been a member for a year or for four years.

I've got an idea that I'm sure will not only make this more popular, but also encourage the masters to really teach their apprentices to the best of their abilities. The idea is simple, turn it into a competition.

Each week there could be a theme of a banner to make (much like BOtW) but instead it could be like a genre of banner. Stock banner, grunge banner, ect. The masters would choose one of their apprentices (obviously whichever one has the best banner at the end of the week) to represent them in the competition. It would have a voting poll, ect. Now the master who wins doesn't win anything except bragging rights, but I think this would really inspire the masters to teach well, and for the apprentices to do as well as they can.

Tombi
08-08-2009, 09:10 PM
I agree. It's a good chance to see how much the apprentices learn and gives them a feel of their first graphic competition.

Good Idea Zach. And they can still enter if they don't have a master yet, right?

I think that defeats the whole purpose. I mean, this is sort of a contest specifically for the masters and apprentices together. The apprentice is here to learn from the master, if the apprentice wanted to enter a banner contest I think they could just enter BOtW.

If so...

PainKiller had his first lesson today. For a second banner, I think this (http://i324.photobucket.com/albums/k351/FOURR3AL/Brutal.png) is pretty good, don't you?

Sign me up for an Apprentice, por favor.

I use Photoshop CS3, and I'm not sure how to make the cool backgrounds everyone uses.

Well pasting a background on a colored canvas.. Then changing the type to screen or overlay and messing with the opacity of the layer... That's how you make a cool background.. :)

The colour of the background would have to match the colour of the render.. That way the background even tho it's another colour when you pick it out... It would semi transform into the direction of the colour you pick.. :D


Then again you can always use the smudges tool on the render and then copy another render over and work with that.. :wink:



Anyway... Weren't we suppose to have contests were the teachers pick what student should compete?

You can never truly be a "Master" at graphics. You can just be really good. Being the best at it is a matter of opinion based on peoples tastes in style and art. You can certainly believe that at some point that you're a master at it, but theres most likely always going to be someone who's better than you are at it. Now I'm not trying to sound like a jerk or anything, i'm just stating the truth of it. xD

Hey, I'd like to apply either as a master, or an apprentice, whichever you believe fits my skill level best. I just noticed that there are quite a few apprentices, and not that many masters... I've been making banners for eh, ~7 or 8 months, and I think I've gotten pretty good. I use Photoshop Elements 7 as well. Here are a few examples:

http://i1000.photobucket.com/albums/af130/BroderickPwns/295.png

^ That one the flow is a bit messed up, I have to say, I forgot to erase parts of the C4D on the left portion of the banner. xD

http://i1000.photobucket.com/albums/af130/BroderickPwns/232.png

I would have liked a better render for this banner... but oh well. ^^;

http://i1000.photobucket.com/albums/af130/BroderickPwns/167.png

Another one for the pokedex project here. I think it's alright.

Anyway, I understand if I'm not quite "master material", but I know what's up when it comes to effects and C4D's, and I don't really have a defined style I guess. I experiment with a lot of different styles. I also just got back from about a 3 month hiatus, so I'm still getting "warmed back up" you could say. :P

About Broderick, if he has an apprentice that wants him to be a master, will he become one?
Because I would like him as my master if possible.

I'd like to be a Master. I've tutored people on graphics before, and successfully to an extent. I can tutor on depth, flow, lighting, C4Ds and their use, clipping masks, fonts, gradient maps, layer settings, filters, brushing, focals, working with stocks, rendering, outlining, and shadowing on pse7 and GIMP. I will work on developing a unique syle and use of the subjected program with the apprentice based on the program's capabilities and restrictions in comparison to other programs. However, it's likely I'll sway my apprentices from using brushes at all. I almost never use them in favor or C4Ds and fractals for effects and stocks or solid colors for backgrounds. I can work from 3:00PM to 7:00PM eastern time zone on weekdays, but will only work when scheduled. I have to share my computer with two other people on a daily basis and family crisis has been a big concern for me lately.

From the looks of your banner in your sig, I'd say you're not ready to be a master yet.
If you had more banners I could look at then, maybe, I'd consider it.

I'm still not sure. I mean, you're banners aren't too bad, but you could use some help with the text and backgrounds. In most of those banners your font is either mismatched, or the text not integrating with the banner itself. Look at other banners to get some ideas on how to make yours better. I suggest using a light source and brushes and patterns in the background - not full of C4Ds or fractal renders. Work on that and then come back. c=

Wow, not bad at all, Kers. Can I suggest that you put borders around your banners? The pink one at the bottom blends too much into the background. Having a border brings the banner forward. You can either use a plain black pixel border, or if you prefer, a colour that goes with the banner itself - like the one in my sig.

Can you do that and add some text? Then come back and show me. ^-^
