The same is true of Kyle; though, he has been becoming increasingly anti-Ramy of late.
what was the few paragraphs thing? when did i type that?
regardless, all i was trying to say is that is the complaint each week is "ramy (or insert name) can't do anything, same old stuff, blah blah blah" then they should just stay out of that particular shirt thread.
the ones i loath the most are the people who comment saying "i knew who this was before i clicked the thumbnail...." and then proceed to bash the artist for doing the same thing, using the same technique, whatever whatever.
if they don't like the design because it is the same old thing, don't say anything, or perhaps say, "i would have liked to see you progress the design this way, etc." if they don't like a nitpick of the design, then be clear about what they would suggest the artist should fix.
posting hate-spewed threads of "i hate your halftones this, and glowy effect that" is not constructive. if ramy (or any other artist) wants to use halftones, glowy effect, or shiny desu, or any other style that is that person's choice.
now, people i have respect for are you, as well as eHacylon (hopefully spelled right). i say that because you two actually suggest ways to improve designs, how to make them better, or a finishing touch. that being said, if it's in the pre-derby thread, most designers listen to your suggestions. if is at the beginning of the derby, some artists have even resubbed quickly with the suggested changes. and if it's too far along they generally leave the originals, but for all we know they may make the change just in case they print in their own shop someday.
anyway, i am just wanting people to help, not hinder. jm2c.
