1/20th assed. LOL

Repped.

I'm not sying that your work is 1/20th assed. I'm just saying that is a hysterical phrase.

The banners where you use brushes look a lot better. LOL

Wow. A lot of animosity here.

Brushes seem to be at the core of this debate. I never got into brushes, not the textured ones which it seems are being discussed here.

But, I'd consider using them. One would be foolish not to use all the tools available in any endeavor.

The key to using tools is not to use them right out of the box as is. If you do, you will produce product that looks like any one could have made it.

If you use the standard fonts loaded into your computer, your result will be text that we've all seen before in garage sale flyers and baby shower invitations.

By modifying the text, or brushes, or whatever, you start to use the tools to produce innovative work.

It's possible to use the same tools everyone else is, yet make something that looks like nothing that's ever been seen before.

It's art that we're talking about. To make it, you get inspired. You see something inside and transfer it to the real world by means of pencil and paper, or paint and canvas, or clay sculpture, or some brushes in Photoshop and a few pictures off the internet.

I think Evil Ash said that he just throws together most of the stuff he makes on this forum. That's not art - and I believe that was his point which was well made.

Most, means that there are a few things that I'm sure he doesn't throw together. The ones you sit and tweak while hours tick away like minutes.

That's art.

There shouldn't be wasted time discussing if people should brushes or not. Who cares what you use. I've made some great pieces that I've used crayons on.

You can scan that, bring it into Photoshop, use some brushes on it, duplicate the layer, desaturate it, create a displacement map, change the layer style...

My point is that art can be created anywhere, with anything, at any time. It's not what you use, it's how you use it.

This thread has inspired me to start using brushes in innovative ways.

Thanks.

ok, well I'm going to stop posting in this thread because I think I just look like a prick if I continue, I've said what I need to.
