Random question... how do I change my avatar here? I've gone through all the options and I can't seem to find anything for my avatar...

Right now we can't change our avatars (unless you replace the image on your avatar's URL, I guess)
There was an update on the forums engine, and not all the old templates are compatible with the new ones, which makes stuff not appear etc.
Goat was working on fixing it though.

Ah, I don't really mind them as long as they don't claim them to be pixel art.
But I do hate all the positive feedback they get >:(

I looks nice. But you can't win my heart with a reproduction of a master painting.

EDIT: Yes, I'm pretty hot.

What the hell. I've already bashed two of those videos apart. Do I need to do it again? Percieve me as elitist all you want. I still say they're using the wrong software for the wrong thing, and also, it's practically just tracing. Some dude made a Master Chief "based on" a Halo 3 wallpaper. Except he kept alt+tabbing to a window of said wallpaper for, like, exactly every line he drew. And he got praaaaaiiiiise.

Damn, I'm ranting. It's been a while. I guess I can blame it on being 3am.

In any case. A good artist doesn't need to upload a "look at what I did!!" video on Youtube to show off how good they are. That's the first of many mistakes they make. They're obviously just trying to show off for a cheap ego boost. The second mistake is, of course, using MS Paint as if it was vector based. The ONLY strength Paint has is that it's pixel perfect, but no one ever thinks of making use of that.


Also, no Helm, this does not mean I suddenly hate Paint.

I totally agree with you Rox, I see it in other artforms too. People making mediocre paintings using their foreheads and stuff, and they recieve praise from everyone uneducated in the ways of art! Moreso then deserving painters. D:

Then again I remember back in primary school when I used to draw battle scenes with my friends in paint. I vaguely remember a tank of two circles, a large rectangle atop them, with crudely drawn army "camo" style paint all over it. Good times.  :D
