(Texture of the Week) | Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

@ j.d ... I need some  :mtdew::mtdew::mtdew: to get my head around why  anyone would want a spider permanently on them ... and then even more to get over the shock. 

@ chrisco' ... can you edit an image once you've posted it ?  (I hope so :lol:)

Possum, I think if you posted the floor in that spider pic, anything I post will be definitely pulverized by its awesomeness XD let's see what I can scrape together.. :/

Man, you guys are so funny! Coughing fit, needs tissue, can't see, laughing too hard.

Axle, anytime you want to get rid of any spiders in my house, you're welcome. I ask them to leave & somtimes they don't listen. Welshy, good woman you have.

Snakes are adorable...I can handle (literally) these. Son has a couple & I love them. I got to baby sit them a while back. So cool!

Back on topic - whatever it was.

Ah, thank you for comment on my texture - Chrisco (see memory is gone for all the laughing!)

Welshy, great work!

I hope I haven't missed anyone...

Yes, it can be anything as long as you can stand on it. Even concrete could qualify!

Even spiders qualified...

@Welshblue:I guess, but only this once.

See above...

I am sorry, Welshblue...I just now noticed the rules say you can't. Sorry!

Id say leave it in the comp. Grass can be a floor too. If you have a tent that doesn't have a canvas floor, the grass is your floor. The ground is actually the floor anytime you are outside and grass is the carpet. See ! Life is all about perspective. :mrgreen:

I can't enter the example I gave with the spider because that's been in my gallery for ages. Not new, not even close ! :lol: Also that stone texture is something I've used on several pictures. Oh I have an idea on what I can do. I just need the time to do it. (and a whole lot more artistic ability :/ )

Axel, I do that too. Spiders are beneficial animals who eat pesky plant eating pests in my garden !

Axle I love your texture. Looks so realistic and simple.

Barbieq you manage yet again to amaze me. If you look closely, my entry was kinda influenced by yours.

I'm happy, I made an entry for the competition and the person likely to beat me (barbieq25) has given me good comments about it.. gives me at least some hope :P

... you've got to admire confidence

And just a thought ...L3Ron is banned for a week ?  Should they be using someone else's account to post competition entries ?

Personally I think, if you're banned you're banned.

It would be like a footballer getting banned, then playing under a different name?

I know...he should be banned longer. He is using another account? They should ban it too...(No offense, L3ron)

L3ron is just a kid...he made a couple of really bad choices. English is his second language...we all make mistakes but it could have been handled differently but such is life (I am NOT questioning the Mods decision as rules are rules)...please let's not stomp on this kid!

I agree, let's not stomp on him. It was a mistake, as we all make.

Back on topic: I love all of the entries! Can not wait for more!

@ barbieq' ... I hope you've known my personality long enough to know I wouldn't stomp on anyone through pure malice.  My point was just that he/she isn't learning anything by having one account banned ... then using someone else's account to log in to post, enter competitions.

A perfect example for you ... my son who's 15 (so roughly the same age) was in a footy competition last weekend playing against an american team, when this kid decided to kick him in the back whilst he was on the floor.  Everybody but the officials saw it ... but when my son got up and punched him ... Everyone including the officials saw it.  And he was rightly sent off.  Meaning he missed the Final that his goals had got them to

His managers wanted him to change his shirt, change his hair-style and play him under a different name, but I wouldn't allow it because he had to learn.  Whether they lost the Final because my son wasn't playing, we'll never know ... but he learnt that he let himself and his team-mates down by not channeling his anger more positively

Too right Welshy, my comments were not aimed at you in the least. I know you. I totally agree.

What I was referring to was the stomping he was getting & some comments have now been edited. SOTW thread is a prime example. Guess I am too much of a softie. Always wanting the win-win. There was an entry in a comp that broke the rules, quick PM, oversight fixed.

What happened to your son is the pits! Damn bitter pill to swallow but having two of my own, yes, they need to learn. He's a better man for doing the right thing. Karma will catch him up when least expected. Same goes for the other kid.

Chrisco, gotta get that quote back on my sig!

I have a suggestion. You might not be able to do it for this week's comp but I think it would be a good idea if people posted a link to the texture they created before it was added to the overall image. I refer to my post with the tile and the spider image. The submission would be in two parts, the first thumbnail would be the texture and the second would be the use of the texture. Does this make sense?
