  1. hey guys! i'm working on college apps and even though i've been inactive for a while, i want to write about tda in my essay! but i'm not exactly sure how to describe what we do. it's not exactly graphic design, right? so what do you think it should be called?

    1. saturn.


      I think back in the day when I was using tda and other forums for my college/internship apps (I'm 25 now, so like... a long time ago), I called it "graphic design and photo manipulation and editing"?

      P.S. We miss you! ❤️

  2. hi tomi! for the ultimate mythology challenge, do they have to be gods/goddesses? or can i use other characters from myths? i 'accidentally' made an orpheus banner before i read the challenge carefully D:

    1. .amaris


      I think that's fine! It's still from mythology, so it's all good :)

    1. Holster


      WHOO! Hahaha it definitely is exciting, I always though I was the only one who was strange XD I'm still pretty awful with comp though :') but I don't know, I've always found it easier to make graphics like that \o/

  12. hi nala! i just have a quick question about your challenge for i challenge thee. when you say one picture, do you mean i can only use one picture on the blend or the same one picture, but many times?

    1. nala


      The same one picture, but you can use it many times.

    2. Holster


      okay, thank you!

  13. Hi Taylor, Charlotte here to give you some critique! I’m truly sorry for the delay, but I hope this will be helpful to you. Your requested a general crit, so I’ll just be going over the weak points that you indicated plus some other weak areas. Text Some issues I’m seeing with text are font choices, colors, and placements. The best way to choose a color is to use the eyedrop tool and to pick a coloring that is already on the canvas.

  15. Hi Grace! Charlotte here to give you some critique. First of all, I just want to congratulate you on the promo and making FA. Very well-deserved. <3 Since you requested a general crit, I’ll just be going over your weak points that you’ve indicated and a few other things that I think you need to work on.
