This category has many styles and probably is the most open to style differences, for this I would go to this Link
and go through each sub category (Here
from abstract through to surreal) then favorite the ones you like (feel free to explore other sections) and not not everything in here is 2D but the majority is.
This catagory has a few styles but many variations, here you will see where 'GFX' 3D text is irrelevant and the programs true potential is shown (programs commonly used are Cinema 4D
and 3DS Max
) so click this Link
and go through each subcategory (Here
and look through abstract to vehicles) there is other 3D on this site so feel free to look around.
This category is massively vast and there are loads of styles so click thisLink
and go through the sub categories (Here
from Abstract through surreal) photomanipulations take a long time to master but i have started a few legends (Inkz for example) on manipulation and hes a pro now.
Illustrating is big businesses I have a few good friends in the business who are awesome designers in their field its not easy and it takes a lot of practice but click this Link
and browse through the subcategories located (Here
from Illustrations through Technical) do note there are some digipaintings in here but from the examples i have provided im sure you can figure the difference.
This is where the word 'Professional' is thrown around a lot, and for good reason most of the time, for example Daemon-Inkz
is a fantastic logo designer and an up comer in the scene on this site is IMAGINENATIVE
, logo design is not easy and you have to be creative and innovative. If you follow this Link
there are some good examples for logos, also if you are looking for inspiration check out this Link
and go through the logo series. On deviantArt do not be afraid to browse other categories such as advertising and packaging (located on the side in the sub categories). It's not an easy place to be but it is where a lot of money is made, also not for the faint of heart.
Digipainting is something I have never tried myself but I still know the basics of it, if you need more detailed help I can direct you to a more experienced guide. Note, a graphics tablet is almost necessary for this style of work so if you are looking for one I will have a buying guide at the bottom of this post. But if you go to this Link
you can browse the paintings to get inspiration, but this field is open to all ideas (and these designers often use reference images so dont be shy) and feel free to browse the sub categories (Here
from Abstract to Surreal short of illustrations).
There are two types of web designing (saying this because MattMiller would smack me if i dont) there is concept creation such as This
and there is actually coding a website. If you code a website thats where you will make money, for that i can not help you but i can send you to someone who can. If you want to create a concept to sell to a coder or to eventually code yourself then look at this Link
and browse through.
This is mostly tool editing such as touching up faces and clearing up old photo residue. For this the only thing i can do for you teaching wise is learning how to use essential tools, if you look up any retouch tutorial that will do just fine. If yo want to use and master color correction i recomend my basic tutorial on how to add realistic color correction (note too much is too much try to limit a max of 3 gradient maps)Here
if you need more help i can direct you to a few members that will assist.
