That's not entirely the case, mate. False hope makes a person strive for better. It motivates them. For example, even if one knows the other is not going to reach their goals/targets, they will encourage them to keep going forward as it give a sense of achievement even if that target is not reached.

I'll admit that I haven't been making sigs recently because I had a lot of personal issues from the start of December but those are now behind me and I'm getting back into it.

Just a tad rusty :rolleyes:

I have to agree MentallyC... what do you think qualifies you to be so lofty as to think that Venoms work is only good enough if it passes your muster?

I think you had better learn to work as a team, which is what the DS is, and should be.

You have come across pretty rude to a few members and have been reported for it.

I suggest easing it up a bit and helping instead of criticizing.

your way of being open is quite often hurtful to others. perhaps taking a step back and looking at it from their point of view would be a good idea?

you can be overly critical towards the aspiring members on the forum.

perhaps you are but indeed people are getting upset over your comments.

i would suggest perhaps telling people what they are doing well as well as pointing out what they can do to improve.

you really gonna make me post a big *** post now!

Venom

heres the sig you made for the last sig of the week



the work put into it by you is negligible all you have done here is taken a picture of a girl & added some brushes around her which in my book is not a ****ing sig! alright there i said it. just topaz + brushes not = to sig more works needs to be put it no matter how nice it looks.

now gilly as you say i am very negative i think some of the people in here don't make sigs they just hore topaz & add brushes & pass it on as a sig when its not alright?

heres how a sig is made :


or this at least this much


but some of the work i am seeing here is not worth calling a sig! if he where to be making a sig then i would give him something positive.

heres another example of his sig



can you say anything positive about this ?
i mean almost all of his sigs have been like this just add topaz+brush & sometimes add some c4d not in a proper proportion.

if you think my opinions are not worthy or some **** like that please just ****ing remove me from the DS & save me the trouble of explaining my self all the ****ing time!

MC OUT!!!

So you are basically complaining because his work is simple and clean? Where in the DS does it say that the sig needs to take time and be complicated? If a user likes the work he does, they will use the sig... if not, then they won't. Easy as that.

Let me repeat - your entire argument is based on his work being simply done. Look at my sig from Kwesnoth. It is awesome IMO. All it was was a photo I found, and he added my name to it. I am very happy with it, it was something I do not have the software for, so having him as a resource is valuable.

Really, you need to calm down. The tone of the last post is really unpleasant.

thats called riping what you have done right there sir.As you have taken the image from the Internet without the permission of the maker of the image & just added you forums name onto it.

his work is not exactly work when there is not even a decent amount of work put into it.

Well MC, if your talking about ripping then you got it wrong.

Using an image from the internet, adding a name to it and using it is not ripping.

Ripping is when you take someone elses work, and claim it as your own. Which neither Cuguy or myself did.

Exactly... the site I got the image from is a free HD wallpaper site so the images were made available for download.

Like Minimal said, it is ok to be critical, but you have to be nice about it. Stop trying to sound like the DS is yours, and that no one else's work is worthy enough.

well if he's not giving due credit to the maker then it is & using it without permission is not advised either.

Almost everyone uses resources in their sig that doesn't belong them. Brushes, stocks, C4Ds whatever, barely any are ever made entirely from scratch.

but they do not take the hole dam thing & just post it as it is do they ?

Brushes & c4ds are made available so they could be used in artwork most of the makers do not demand credit for the c4ds & brushes. stocks are a different story its in what context you use it in.

The guy who made that image put it on a site for it to be downloaded and used. How ever the user wants to. Whither it be a computer, or on a forum.

Excellent point Smiggy.

Everything used in sigs is made by someone else. Are you gonna give credit to every person to which the stuff you used in your sig was made?

MC your main problem is that you think a sig isn't a sig unless it is over the top with a million efects layered on top of it.

Though in reality too many layers will end up choking the sig and more often than not simpler is actually better.

actually i am all for a sig with minimal layers but the problem is that some times people use less then minimal layers in their sigs & do absolutely nothing other then add topaz & some random brushes or c4d which doesn't even look good & is not a sig from my perspective.
