Default SOTW: No183 Chat Thread


It must suck knowing that the winner is a stock with some text on it. Not a good thing for sotw when something that took around 30 seconds wins.

It does seem that way.

yea it wasn't the most successful sotw ever lol. its a public vote though so there's not much that can be done about it, they had to work with the entries that were submitted.

hopefully more people enter the next one to make voting a bit more of a decision.

I think it sucks worse that I wasn't born the amazing detective you are.

I think you'll agree there's a difference between simplicity/easy to make and a cropped stock.

I'm curious as to which category you think my work falls under.

Well, Hurricane says it's a stock. I ran a little Google search and found http://www.mcb.ucdavis.edu/faculty-l...iStatues_1.jpg. I'm sorry to say that all I see is a stock with a few brush strokes, adjustment layers and text. I could be wrong of course, there might be something I've missed.

Brush strokes? Outside of smudging on some of the lighter layers, there weren't any of those. What I did is no lazier--or whatever word you'd like to use--than the others. If my stock usage is wrong, so is rukia's render usage. If my lack of a ton of abstracts and overblown effects is wrong, so is Gambit's. So I'm guessing you think only Interllect's work is actually worth anything, right?

I don't mind you or anyone saying anything negative about my work. It's when you act as though I should be disqualified and talk as though I'm stealing work by not doing a million things to the base image so it's no longer remotely conceivable as that original product that bothers me. I'm really not sorry I don't spend days and weeks making some ridiculous masterpiece from scratch; I make signatures for fun and as what is essentially a hobby and nothing more. I try to make something I think looks nice and improve on a few things here and there of course, but I don't try to design a bunch of stuff by hand and try to be some kind of expert. There's absolutely no rule on design that says I need to be that caliber.

And yes, you did miss a few things, if you were curious.

I think the main thing here is that you calm the fuck down. I've never said you should be DQed, suggested you've stolen anything, criticized your approach to signature making or compared your tag to the others. But hey, jumping into conclusions is fun. I conclude from your post that... *opens a book at a random page and takes the 1st letter* P! I conclude you want to have a pee party! Come on everyone, grab a bucket, it's a pee party at Ahriman's! Get a hold of yourself man.

BTW, when I said brush-strokers I meant the dots.

If you weren't trying imply anything along those lines, you wouldn't have made the cropped stock comment, just as Hurricane wouldn't have said what he did. People don't say things that are snarky unless they're being snarky, mainly because I know you're not that dense.

And for the brush stokes, oh.

Just put more effort into your next piece of work, thank all the people who voted for you, and move on. Hurricane and SalMax might seem harsh in their critique, but they are right. Right now you can win a sotw on a site which currently has the smallest community it ever had, considering you are all up in gfx, I imagine you want to move on to bigger and better things. Until you experiment, try more complex techniques and execute them properly in your work, you wont be able to achieve that.

I'm sorry, I guess I've never realised that calling a tag a cropped stock (Italics are so underrated... You only ever hear about Bold letters. I think it's a tad racist, do you reckon?) went along the lines of accusation of theft and cries for a lynch. I'll bear that in mind next time and have the torches and pitchforks ready.

Oh, thank you for thinking so highly of me.

EDIT: You know what, I'm sorry if I've been too harsh on you, I didn't mean any of the stuff you thought I did.
