    Graphics & Ethics

    Thanks again for the feedback. I really appreciate it. =) And, yes, it's something that came up on the boards I run, and I was really at a loss for the legitimacy of the concerns. Oh, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't criticize a piece done by a graphics artist unless I knew, for a fact, that...

    Oh, whoa, there was? It's just a direct link to the image, I didn't realize it led anywhere else. Sorry if it did! The person that reported these images to me actually replicated the same effect with a few Photoshop actions she downloaded, so there really is no credit that can be given to the...

    Graphics & Ethics

    She isn't claiming that she created the actual images, but the reason people are upset is she posts graphics like these to promote her shop, with taglines in her signature such as: "Signature Made By Me" and "Voted Best Graphics Artist." Before this, she used to at least use brushes or...

    Howdy, FFF. I'm coming to you guys with a question, as when I think of a community with a lot of seasoned graphics artists, I immediately think of you guys. That being said, I have an issue on my forum that I would like to ask for advice on. The Situation: A user who owns a Graphics Shop that...

    [01/09] Square Enix reponds to Deus Ex racism accusations

    Oh, there are definitely games out there that are waaay worse. I think Punch-Out! and Custer's Revenge were certainly more offensive than this, haha. My bad. Not sure how I forgot that one, I think the title of the thread was what did it.

    [01/09] Square Enix reponds to Deus Ex racism accusations

    I will admit, both myself and my boyfriend while playing Deus Ex, looked at that NPC and went: "...That's not stereotypical or anything." But, really, this is Square we're talking about, the company that gave us Barrett, only to apologize for him more than a decade later with Sazh. If they...

    Today I went to a museum called Butterfly World, which has a small area of invertebrates on display in enclosures, and then they have huge aviaries and gardens with thousands of butterflies and small birds flying around. I'll have quite a few updates for a little while. Dead Leaf Mantis...

    I haven't heard much feedback from you guys lately, so hopefully I'm not boring you with these updates. Today is my boyfriend's birthday, and I finally put together my in-home studio, so I thought I'd give him a birthday portrait. In The Studio: Rusty Model: Chris Chetwood [Fair_Game] This...

    Finally got my computer to behave long enough to let me complete another photograph. This one was from a photoshoot back in Winter, but I couldn't post it up until now due to the agreement with the client. I'm E n g a g e d ! Model: Sylvia Widrig As always, feedback and comments are...

    Thank you so much! Major apologies for being so late in replying! I'm glad you like the image so much, and I'm glad the intended effects I was going for were well-received! I wanted her to look as if she were a part of the forest, but not annoyingly so. LolitaV- M e r l o t Model: Miki...

    Thanks for the comment, and kudos on the K-Pop and Persona love. I'm a little unsure of what you mean by 'more darkness,' as to me, that whole area is pitch black. I think I should have lit his suit a little better so he didn't fade back into the background so much, but the final piece was...

    Haha, you're welcome to dance through here as much as you like. I'd love to see your cousin's work if you have a link to an online portfolio! I'm really flattered to hear you say that - though, I admit that capturing the more aesthetic part of people is my main focus in photography. Oh...

    [14/06] Kitase interested in PSP remastering

    I still won't play Dissidia - for the mangled fanfiction-like mess that it is - but I would play the hell out of Crisis Core on the PS3! I even got the connectors to hook my PSP up to the TV - but man was that a waste of time. Having it remastered for my HD TV would be amazing. I just...

    Wow, that's very flattering - thank you. I am an amateur, though - I just play up my strengths and avoid my weaknesses, it's a generally successful tactic in just about any endeavor. I'm a sales supervisor - so my day job revolves around customer interactions - part of which I've used when...
