Hey, Art Guru (OP), Seeing as you've insulted just about every signature artist on the forum almost entirely on the source of their stocks.
Maybe quiet time?
About the rendering kids - I was rendering images 8 years ago (at 14), and I was pentooling it and using clipping masks with an intuos3 (brand new at the time!), much more difficult and cleaner than a fool with an eraser tool. In fact, all the top renderers, photomanipulators, graphic artists/designers use this method, an extraction method in PS, or even using lasso tools - not erasing in GIMP. Do you have any idea what you're talking about when it comes down to image editting softwares? o.O
There are like 2-3 people on here that are actually selling their tags. If you have an issue with them, man up and pm them. I'll be glad to read as no doubt some is aimed at myself. ^_^
The reason I sell my tags is I dont have much free time. People mentioned to me that they would be willing to pay for theirs in previous threads and via pm.
Now, I've spent over £30k and 9 years for my education, software and hardware, and you are belittling me on where I obtain my stocks, JUST because I am asking for recompense for my time?
I'm offended. Well and truly.
That guy who made the OP wrote:
As for discrediting signature artists: There are people out there making profit by selling their signatures, I refuse to speak 1 good word about them or acknowledge whatever skill those sellers have, unless they provide something that is for a full 100% their own (this means, not using images somebody else made).
I'm not asking for your good word. Or your acknowledgement. I'm asking where you're going with this? Closed shops? Bans?
But hey, since you can't acknowledge any skill that I may or may not have, how about a wee little GFX or DP competition between you and I?
to see your work.
