  1. TF2: Meet The Tommy Artist's comments Art Specs: Time taken: About a few weeks, working randomly on and off in little bits of five minutes at a time. Programs used: Paint.NET Techniques used: Typical techniques I use. See past works. Stocks used: None. Except for the avatar on the front of the minigun. Which was made by the person that the person this art portrays.
  2. dA works if you have close friends on there and you look in the right places.
  3. McCain only met the woman twice before picking her as his running mate. It's obvious he justs wants to have a woman so he can get a little more media attention. Kinda sad really. I'd much rather have competent people running and competent people voting. But instead we have a nation filled with people who just want to see the first black president or the first female president. While that's fine, it's better to make a politically informed decision rather than a decision based off of personal preferences. a lot of people don't even look into the candidate before voting. They just look at the core BS issues and their party affiliation. At the end of the day, the president is still a figurehead and doesn't have as much power as people like to think, but it's better to have a good person in office than an idiot.
  4. Very nice, far better than my first sig. But a few minor complaints. 1. Needs a border, a 1px black border will do, you don't need anything too fancy, just something to separate it from the forum background. Just a small simple step that makes the sig look loads better in my opinion. 2. For next time, something slightly more original. No offense, but I see so many halo sigs they start to all look alike. Not saying your sig is bad, because it most certainly is not, but yeah, lack of originality.
  5. No. You don't need a bunch of filters and effects on text to make it look good. Just make it contrast less with the cover is all. Or put it in a more suitable place.
  6. Well I'm sorry my sig doesn't meet your expectations in terms of size. But I like making my sigs small. And I personally don't enjoy gigantic sigs that push the size limits. I keep mine small because I prefer them over big blocky ones. But I'm weird. Ignore me. Anyway. 7/10 for yours. I dislike the font choice because it's kind of bland and doesn't add to the personality or tone of the sig. The render is good, but feels like it lost its potential because you faded it so much and put it in an odd place. The logo on the left is too bold compared to the render on the right. They contrast too much. Anyway, it's good effort, but not very appealing to the eyes. And the white glow on the right ruins any color scheme that you were going for. You shouldn't mix fading gradients with bold logos either. Uniformity is the key to a good sig in my opinion.
  7. Really helpful tutorial. I started at the same way Mike Ryan did, and developed similar techniques myself that he mentioned in this thread to keep me motivated organized, and relaxed. One thing I want to add on: This sorta fits under the "Enjoy what you do!" section, but don't be afraid to procrastinate a little. If you're working on a long art piece that takes quite a bit of time to finish, save finishing it for another day. I used to be the kind of person who NEEDED to finish everything in one day. This was my worst bad habit and it was the hardest one to quit. But once I learned to work on my art slowly and thoroughly, the process was much more relaxing, and yielded much better results. When you try to finish a large project in one day, you get bored towards the end, and want to get it done as fast as possible and end up rushing through the last part. Not good. The second you start to get bored with it, quit. There's no deadline for your art. Go do something fun, come back later. By that point you'll be more excited about finishing the piece and therefore more dedicated to the quality of the work.
  8. 7/10, too big for my tastes. I think your crticism could've gone a little deeper. :wink: In all seriousness. 7/10 for the first. It's pretty, but pretty dull. 8/10 for the second. It would be a 9 if the render were a tad smoother. 8/10 for the third. My favorite of the bunch.
  9. Eh. They're alright. I made one awhile back when the first GTA IV artwork was released back in early 2007.
  10. http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs31/f/2008/204/a/2/Jimmy_Page_sig_by_Tendercrisp.png ^ Was setting up my new sig.
  11. Didn't read this whole thread, just the article. I'm iffy about this, yes they're terrible people for picking on the girl, but she could've had more self control than to go and hang herself. I used to get picked on a lot throughout elementary and middle school and it caused me to be really anti-social for awhile. Not to mention a tad awkward. I bottled my feelings up and never got therapy, yet I never went and killed myself or even thought of it. And anonymity is a need on the internet. It has come in really handy before. As for using the internet to do illegal things, some of us actually need to if we want to get a head start on things in life. For example, some people, like myself, may want to pursue a career in digital art and wanted to get familiar with industry standard programs that were expensive, but out of our reach due to finances... *cough* Anyway, I'm not worried about it. Legislation like this won't go through for a long time, if ever. And even if it does, it'll be another unenforced law. It'll be too hard to monitor and it'll take too long to rebuild the internet from the ground up to support these laws. I mean, where I live, fireworks are illegal, yet there are still fireworks shops and people using them on the fourth of July. If the government can't take down a few shops and give citations to a few people for using explosives, what makes you think that they'll be able to enforce a law that covers the entire internet? And not only that, some nations are stricter than others. You can't enforce something like that internationally. The world is too populated to get everyone on the same page. One reason world peace is too damned hard to achieve, sadly.
  12. 6/10. The lightning really doesn't fit with the simpsons render. I know it's supposed to make the choking look more epic (or something along those lines), but you should lower the brightness and increase the contrast on homer and bart. They'll fit with the background more.
