Also, people do not pay for Alex' images or theory only, they pay for his experience, his quality, his time and effort put into his personal website and videos. Those things cannot be directly credited to Pixelation.

I see no conflict of interest here. Pixelation is a public forum run at negative profit in order to promote the free exchange of information, Kon's website is his business both in the commercial and personal senses, in which some exclusive information is exchanged in a transaction.  Information on both Pixelation and Final Redemption is first and foremost a commodity, and its distribution is and should be entirely up to the creators.  We're a free site by choice, Kon charges by exercising the same choice.

I think a conflict of interest arises in questioning how an artist chooses to distribute their art.  It's not like there are a ton of niches for pixel atists anymore, and this type of thinking will only hurt us in the long run by narrowing our options.  Personally, Kon, I wish you the best of luck, and would be interested to hear how this venture pans out.

to re-use the example of pron sites. there are paid and free sites as well. so why not with tutorials.

free porn? do tell. 


...??? I don't think there are such sites... you may get something for free, but not the full 'product.'

I suppose it's down to what you want your site to do, but personally this kind of portfolio website should'nt need registration, especially if you expect to get jobs from it, if I was commisioning  artwork and I came across a site I needed to register for I'd be clicking on that little red X and moving on to the next site.

Art is to be seen not to be hidden away in private members areas.
