comment Antonym of Pastel Color Space (Color Scheme?)
"Pastel" is usually used when talking about paints and other physical colours, and usually implies a subdued matt finish as well as paler (lighter, less saturated) colours. "Vibrant" or maybe "vivid" or "gloss" might be a sort-of opposite here - but there's more to these than adding black. You can't control how matt or gloss (flat or shiny) the viewer's screen is, so "pastel" vs "vibrant" doesn't work so well RGB for colours on a screen. "Tint" is usually more appropriate than "pastel" (though "pastel" will still be understood).

comment Why does Illustrator CS6 “Save for Microsoft Office” use PNG format?
+1, also, MS Office ruins pretty much every vector format going. It's often capable of embedding many types of vector files, but in my experience makes an absolute hash of everything, even the Microsoft-invented formats like WMF. PNGs, however, are difficult to ruin...

comment How can I superimpose a graphic over a dark t-shirt?
"I have a problem with the multiply blend mode" - Multiply makes things darker. The opposite of Multiply is Screen. Depends on the artwork, but might just work. Note that Screen with black typically has no effect, like Multiply with white, so you may need to change the logo depending on how it looks if there are black/dark areas that need to be prominent - e.g. swap black for white, dark for light, then use Screen. And make sure there's no white background...use black if you need to fade anything into a background colour.

comment Is it possible to create 3D red/cyan anaglyphs in a hand drawing?
I actually tried this once, with a red and a cyan(ish) felt tip pen... only problem is, I was about 10 at the time and got bored when it didn't work first time... You'll likely need to vary the widths: it's the varying distance that gives the effect of varying depth. I think I first tried just holding the pens in one hand, but the barrels kept slipping, so I tied a rubber band around the pens where they start to taper towards the nib to keep them together and held a pen in each hand so I could tilt them towards and away from each other... but that was really hard to do, so I gave up :-/

comment How to draw icebergs like the following image?
Just to note that everything Johannes refers to in Photoshop can be done in GIMP - nothing advanced software-wise is needed here. It's just about good judgement with colours, shades, placement, consistent light source, etc, and keeping it all organised well like Johannes describes.

Looks good, and makes sense! Particularly like the clear and consistent colour coding.

comment Can I have the equivalent of a Ps 'smart object' in Ai which I can keep updating in Ps?
Cool, did you manage to get it so you could update the placed file when it changed from the Links window? For some reason that's never worked for me with PSDs, for me it always places then forgets the original file and 'Update link' and 'Edit original' are greyed out with PSDs

comment Can I have the equivalent of a Ps 'smart object' in Ai which I can keep updating in Ps?
You can get some of the way with File > Place in Illustrator, but no PSD I've ever placed has maintained the ability to update when the original is updated, unlike other file types (even if it's saved from the same version of PS with "Maximise compatibility" ticked). It's not something I do much though, so I might just have been doing it wrong...
