@JohnB what are you doing in here? Go eat some turkey! :P
 
@Vincent soon!
currently cooking some Indian food~
 
3:26 PM
ah, with your own peppers?
 
you bet :)
though I did buy a couple fresh jalapenos from the store for a milder dish
 
sounds good :) happy Thanksgiving!
 
thanks! And uh, happy Thursday? to you
 
lol. Yeah, kind of.
Ah well, I'll just wait a bit and gloat that I have a Sinterklaas to celebrate and you guys don't :)
 
I'll be making some pepernoten on Sunday at the suggestion of my friend
 
3:40 PM
ah, great! I baked some myself last weekend, my first homemades
 
looks good
you can have quite the influence on the taste by adusting the ratios of the herbs and spices. some spice mix recipes also add ginger, mace and/or cardamom
 
4:08 PM
Happy Thanksgiving (Fellow Americans and anyone else who wants turkey ;D )
 
you too, @GiantCowFilms
 
4:42 PM

get cancelled for not being PC
 
heated debate, @joojaa
and it's Black Pete :)
seriously, some celebrations have been overseen by security and /or police
 
is sinterclaas next i mean you need to be gender neutral and all that
 
4:58 PM
hehe
I guess. before you know it, we'll have to have gay and transgender Petes as well
or 'Rudolphina' the red-nosed reindeerette

Hi :)
 
hello
 
I have a question
I think graphic design is really fun, and I enjoy doing it
however I suck really bad at it
I would like to get better, but my parents don't seem to think it a worthwhile cause
How would you suggest I work on improving?
 
That's one of our top-voted questions

Q: Tips and resources for beginning designers

Andy GroffThanks to the internet, graphic design and programming are becoming increasingly overlapping fields. As a programmer, I constantly find myself needing basic knowledge of Graphic Design, but have trouble locating thorough yet concise graphic design learning resources, and instead usually find bi...

 
what sort of stuff do you work on?
 
and: hi :)
 
6:28 PM
I just sorta do whatever I feel like - mostly favicons and game sprites
small stuff
Like mc texture packs etc
 
asking for feedback from others can be a good way to improve
 
ok,
 
@Deep Show us your stuff and we can rip it to pieces! Mha ha ha ha :D
 
Ok.
Here, found it:
What do you guys think
 
6:49 PM
@Deep I don't like the gradient when I click the button, but that's just me.
 
What Else?
 
The positioning is all over the place... to the top and bottom of the buttons should line up with the top and bottom of the text. The margin between the buttons should be the same as the margin between the funny orange text and the normal text
The font you chose for the funny orange text is nearly impossible to read for me, but again, that could just be me.
 
Its the Metal Gear Solid Font. Solidus Snake was a Character in MGS2, and I wanted to make something in a similar style to those games
 
@Deep Okay...
 
It makes sense, okay? :)
 
6:54 PM
If it is important it is fine, I was just saying that encase you'd done it and could improve it
 
Yeah
 
On hover, try make the buttons orange with white text...
 
ok
 
and add a little .5 second fade transition using CSS3 animations to make it less jarring when it switches between them
Make that .3 second, mess with the numbers until it looks right
 
sure, thanks
 
6:57 PM
You're welcome.. PS are those diagrams on the back anything special?
 
No, they just look cool
asprin
epinephrine
paracetamol
Pheniramine
Nothing Special
 
Okay :)... some chemist will probably look at them and laugh...
 
yeah :)
 
Like I do when they "Enhance" in movies
Or crack 128-bit encryption by grunting (I'm talking to you Micheal Bay)
 
ikr
 
7:08 PM
@Deep mmm
@Deep Anything else you've been working on?
 
7:46 PM
Critiques?
 
I'm currently working on a game, and am going to soon start on art for it (in a couple of weeks)
 
8:25 PM
@Deep Cool...
