Lesson 3: Terms for GFX Talk

Post by nneoj14 on 16/10/2010, 11:34 am

Tags: Tags are small works intended to fit into signatures. They're often rather small in height and somewhat wide in comparison. Tags were a big internet fad for a while, or at least they were on forums and boards alike, but had died down with the popularity of larger pieces. An example of a tag would be this. Tags are always a good place to start for aspiring graphic artists as they allow you to learn about the functions of photoshop, apply flow, work with renders and stocks and so much more. In reality, the thing that makes you money through graphic design is print work. Thins meaning that tags aren't exactly money makers when it comes down to it though they most certainly are good practice.

Icons: Icons again, are a fad and quite a popular one too. Though web designers would see icons as something of small graphics to indicate certain options or links, such as favicons or I guess you could say dock icons. The icons I'm speaking of now were started by LiveJornal. An icon is a small 100x100 piece of graphics and is often a good representation of a graphic artist's style. They're primarily used as avatars on boards, forums and blogs. They've also been used to make themes on boards or forums. An example of an icon would be this.

Large Pieces: Are exactly that, large graphic art. In the graphic design world, people primarily work with larger pieces for print work and such. Think about posters, billboards and advertisements; that's what large pieces would be when brought into the world of graphic design. Though most of the large pieces you seen on graphics communities and the likes. Large pieces vary a lot. This is an example of a large piece.

Some terms we here in GFX talk with:

Flow: Flow is when the focal points natural "flow" or direction is also represented by the effects used in the artwork. It is often created by smudging, C4D's and pentooling.

Vector: The art of pentooling the outline of an image to trace or color an image.

Composition: This is what goes into a signature, this would include the render, the background, the stocks, C4D's used etc.

Depth: Is just that, a signature with no depth is what we call "flat" which is something we'd like to avoid. Depth is often made by the background using blurring, smudging, stocks or C4D's.

Focal Point: This is the part of the signature/piece in which you should be focusing on, the part that stands out and in which the entire signature/piece is created around.

Lighting: Is the light in which is created by the focal. Often made my soft brushing or a lens flare (found in your filters).

Placement: Where you put your stock/render, this is important in making a piece, you've got to know how to make your stock/render work with the size of the piece and where it fits best.

Monotone: When a signature is the same hue, tint or colour the whole way through. This can be avoided by using many colours. Even B&W tags can avoid this.

Render: A cut out of a stock used in tags quite a lot. Often feature a character or person.

Stock: A full picture.

Smudge: An effect made in Photoshop/Gimp using the smudge tool. It can make a signature, or it can break a signature.

C4D: A cinema 4 d image. Used for effects primarily.

GMV = Got my vote

LQ = Low Quality
