comment Do web frameworks such as Bootstrap or HTML5 boilerplate offer anything to a designer (not developer)?
+1 nice question i have been curious about this myself but have no where near the amount of experience as you do. so i was approaching it as someone starting off wanting to know the advantages to a newbie. when you reference Dreamweaver are you talking about the coding or WYSIWYG method of using it? i use Dreamweaver, but only the code editor and nothing automated if i can help it.

comment How do I create a polygon tessellation pattern in Adobe Illustrator?
the bonus to doing it this way over mine is immense. initially you drastically save yourself time by not having to continuously repeat the shape manually. it also makes the future editing and management of the pattern vastly less complicated.

comment How do I create a polygon tessellation pattern in Adobe Illustrator?
if you look closely at the example pattern that uses the triangle, you will see that there are actually two different triangles used. but that would be a small matter and your answer is much more efficient. +1

comment Given a number, how to find that many colours that are well-distinguishable?
1: find maximum number of unique colors determined by the system you are using to represent them. 2: determine the minimum difference between 2 colors that a "healthy human" can distinguish. 3: divide the maximum number of colors by that distance. << that (lets call this x) is the largest acceptable input from the user. 4: RNG a starting color. 5: divide x by n from user (to get y). 6: add y to start color n times. 7: show resulting colors.

comment Is there a guide out there for printing and selling T-shirts?
you could always try and get your design on Threadless. it is mostly visual trash on there now but they still pay you a nice sum of money for winning designs.

comment What's the fastest-drying pen?
@horatio sharpies may be indelible but if the ink has not yet fully dried and you swipe it with a sweaty wrist you are going to smear it. sharpies put down a lot of ink and it does not dry as quickly as some other inks. even the smudge glove solution suggested below may not prevent smearing a sharpie all of the time.

comment How to study anatomy as an artist?
i think the two answers given really cover it. i would say use both of them. specifically: study anatomy (in books), draw from life.

comment Unicode character that conveys 'synchronization'?
just installed and tested Symbola typeface on both Chrome and Firefox. these diacritics are mangled in both. looking at it again in Arial i see that the majority of glyphs are supported. it is the arrows used as diacritic marks that are showing up as numbers in boxes due to lack of support somewhere between the HTML on the server and the pixels in my monitor.

comment Unicode character that conveys 'synchronization'?
@MarcinWolny i do not understand what you are trying to communicate to me. i never said that combining multiple characters was a better solution. what about Chrome?

comment Unicode character that conveys 'synchronization'?
@user568458 nope. does not work in chrome either on my machine. i checked the glyphs in arial and they are not included natively. your machine may have an installed font that supports them and be using that typeface to display them.

comment Is there any tool to display swatch sheet in a document?
@AndroidHustle Also you have, or can have, access to StackOverflow as well as several other StackExchange sites that could provide help. If you make it and it generates a significant amount of interest Adobe could potentially include a similar feature into future versions. Maybe even buy or license your implementation from you if you copyright it. You never know unless you do it and first. Also I think you meant "adept".

comment Unicode character that conveys 'synchronization'?
The problem with combining them is my font set does not support those combined characters so instead of arrows I see boxes and numbers. I however do not mind, and in fact kind of like the spacing caused by the separate characters. Not knowing what they look like as one I cannot judge that.

Your struggle to learn JS could make the world a better place... I can see how something like this would be useful for lots of designers. I, as an intern, made swatch pages as you described, fortunately there were only approximately 10 colors that needed doing at a time. Also if you do or ever will do anything relating to web design having an understanding of JS can make you a better designer, even if you do not do the coding.
