That sounds fine then - yes, an inconsistent gap would distract more as being strange

comment Critique: Any advice on the design of my systems engineering résumé?
The timelines confused me a little since there's only one item on each one. Joining them together might confuse/mislead since it would like like a timeline organised by time when actually it's organised by category. I'd drop it until there's multiple items on each timeline.

comment Make an index where “cat” also refers to “cats”
Interesting question, I know there are loads of scripts out there that try to address shortfalls in InDesign's indexing, but am not sure if any do synonyms. If your case is just simple plurals, you could maybe cheat and put find-change in a zero-width whitespace character (discretionary break, maybe?) between cat and s so to the machine it's cat s but to a reader it looks like cats - but you'd also need to make sure it was non-breaking (character style maybe?) so you don't end up with cat at the end of one line and s at the start of the next.

do you mean the grey folded / creased / scrunched-up paper effect? or the pattern on the photo?

comment How do I use the unstyled icons in the Action Bar Icon Pack?
Yeah it just means they're neutral (plain black) so you can add whatever styling you want to fit the design of your app. You could do this in a design program or code (e.g. SVG attributes or CSS or something Android-specific).

Just checking: the document colour mode is definitely RGB? Not CMYK?

comment What tools would Monks use when DESIGNING a large illuminated letter or pattern?
No problem, I imagine any other illumination of any other style would have the same issue! Just clarifying that it's the general approach to desiging illuminations not any one particular style or technique

comment What tools would Monks use when DESIGNING a large illuminated letter or pattern?
Great question, I've always wondered about things like this. That particular example has a lot of celtic patterns, is that intentional or incidental? Just that celtic patterns could be a whole question on its own.

comment What's the typography used by “Pride of Gypsies”?
A good way to judge if something is a font or handwriting is to look for repeated characters and see if they match. There are two ss in gypsies and one in toujours and they're all different, as are the es in pride and gypsies, so it's almost certainly hand drawn. There might be similar fonts out there, though.

?? Packaging design is 100% a legit branch of graphic design. Good question

comment How to draw a wing cascade with boundary layers?
I don't know either software mentioned well but I'd guess your "blank box" problems mean one or other of the programs is putting the artwork in a group or a clipping mask - look for options to do with ungrouping or removing masks or compound paths.
