Wow, I just read xamrit's post, and a couple of other ones, and boy, some people take GFX too seriously. In all honesty, the majority of the crap that I manage to produce is half assed. Wait not even half assed, maybe like 1/20th assed.

While I guess I sort of agree that brushes are easy to use, it still takes a good artist to make the most of them. If you look at most of my crap, I just use brushes as a lazy person way to blend shit. I don't post graphics to try and out do someone or to prove that I am some sort of crazy guy and others are "noobs". I post it because I am bored or I want to help someone out. Just curious, what do you use/do for your sigs? Because I hate to be rude, but I'd suggest being lazy and a "noob" and using brushes because them 3-D Metalic BGs look a little whack to me. But maybe I am of the un-trained eye, and am a noob.

Oh and BTW, Ash, that Barnett sig looks sex to the e.

First of all I don't really agree with this poll in the first place but whatever, it doesn't really matter. I'm not here to show that I am better than anybody else nor do I think I am better than anybody else. I really do prefer workig together and helping each other out. If somebody can give me advice that isn't being said in a condescending manner, I love that. I just like helping people out, you won't ever see me asking for people to give me points. It's their choice whether they give me points or not. Kimura has come in new and has really done a good job. He really puts in a lot of time and really works to get people's requests done and if I didn't know any better, I think he enjoys doing it. Me, if you request from me, I'm probably going to take a couple of days to get back to you. Sometimes I will do it straight away. It usually depends on how I am feeling. I really should sort out my priorities though and really start giving back to this forum which has really been so very good to me. Us graphics guys should really start working together and communicating. Whenever I see a request, I will post a response saying that I will do it and then I come back later and 3 others have responded saying that they will do it too. So it seems that a few of us are trying to out do each other. If you want to be like that, that's fine but I really would like it much better if we worked together and communicated. Anyway... BP can really do some nice stuff. Overall I think he could be the best one of us if you want to see who the best one is, to me it doesn't really matter. Trey has some nice tricks. Presentaion wise the stuff he makes doesn't ever show a weakness. That's the thing. You want good solid pieces of art with no holes. You need to work toward that. I'm pretty balanced, I think. I like to balance things out but the thing with the stuff I make, my work doesn't really have the spark that just grabs you and makes you want to stare. So, I feel that's my weakness. Somebody else may think something else. I don't know. I don't really think of myself as being good and I'm not trying to out do anybody else. So, yeah, I really don't want to vote but who's work do I like the most? Usually, BPs. His work is solid. All around, very good. That's what you want.
lol, very original, never heard that before

what I said was always going to make me look like a prick, but hey its 100% true

brushes are for beginners, you wanna get better? use tutorials that dont involve using a brush... if not, well thats your choice

I used to take GFX seriously, the sigs I show on this forum take me around 3 mins to make... I was just telling you the truth, if you wanna get better use my advice (stop using brushes), if you don't care continue doing what you're doing, after all it's a MMA forum not GFX forum

I didn't directly call anyone a noob, I said brushes are for noobs, which is true, if the truth hurts, live with it

PS: sorry for double post

Well it's better to say, if you want to become better with graphics, an idea is to step away from brushes and explore other alleys. I don't think any of us noobs really take graphics very seriously. You're allowed to post your thoughts of course but make it clear what you mean because just reading your posts at the start of this thread, people arn't really going to like you. You may or may not care about that but maybe you should take note of that and the things you say. I'm probably repeating myself but that doesn't matter.

He also genuinely give props and encouragement to other gfx artists who made good sigs and he constructively criticizes your art if you needed one. I am a fan of these guys art but my vote goes to BP88.
Did you make Liveson's banner? You did a really good job with that. I like your Pacman avatar too by the way. You should add your own little touch to it.

In my opinion, every designer on this site is better than you. I am usually not this mean but you piss me off. I know some of the best designers there are and they all use brushes. Now you coming in here and saying brushing is for noobs when we all use them is exactly like coming in here and saying MMA is for ***s and boxing is better.

Please stop making yourself look like an ass...produce one good piece of work before you can criticize others and make such a bold statement.
