Post New Doodle...
Some of you have already seen this, but I haven't put it up on the main site yet (since I've been side-tracked of late... :roll: ) So here's a sketch of me studying wolf forms:

I have no clue as I've always had my own or my school's to use. You might have to give 'em a call, or go over there and ask.

This is just, just, just ;_____; Kill me. The anatomy's divine, for just a study.

Yeeeeeeeeeeah, but I'm talking about graphics by computer. That's something I do a lot. Can you do that too?

Sora, where do you think I made all the graphics on my site? With my hair? :x I'm not talking about my drawings here - that's different. Please READ the post and understand what the person is saying before you post back - this will prevent misunderstandings in the future. What I ment was the site's graphics itself - not my art. You've seen both the Weirdo Zone and Weirdo Zone Comics, I made both sites from scratch using image editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, and HTML editors like Dreamweaver and notepad (well actually in using notepad the HTML editor was my head...).

If you're trying to prove something, I'm not impressed. Anyone can edit images using programs like Adobe Photoshop and the like. Why do you think there are so many sprite comics just like yours out there? They're all a dime a dozen and unfortunatly your "comics" are in that group. The real trick is to make the images look good and do it using no other images. All you do is take pre-existing images and slap them together and that's it. Can you make decent graphics from scratch using those programs? I have yet to see you do that on your sites. Don't get me wrong, your comics are cute, but they're not terribly original.

This isn't a contest here, this is a place to display art for other artists to check out and comment on. Thus please watch your attitute and the way you present yourself here to prevent further misunderstandings.

Well, as long as there is a bit of a rant going on here... :wink:

Sora? Why do you always leave so much empty space in the body of your posts? It's wasted area and is more than a little bothersome. You may have a reason though, that's why I ask. 8)

I hope you're not mad at me. I wasn't trying to offend you. I figured if you're so good with Illustration, than you could help me out a bit with graphic arts. I've been doing it for years, but I wanna be better. Like you.


I'm sorry for offending for. I didn't mean to. I was just trying to get some help. :cry:

Post How could you Jai?
Jai, I believe it is YOU who has misunderstood. Maybe next time you'd wanna ask me to be more specific, instead of making me look like an idiot! I know you're better than me! A lot of people are, but that doesn't mean you have to rub it in my face, just because you didn;t understand me! I'm tired of being hurt by you! Every time I go to a message board, YOU hurt me! Now, I'm thinking, "What's the point? JAI'BYRD'S GONNA RUIN IT ANYWAY!" Why won't be nice for a change? Why won't you take lessons from Angel?




STOP HURTING ME! :cry:

Take it easy, Sora.
Right now, I think you are running into your own principals; You want Jai to be nice but on the other hand, you're screaming yourself.
Maybe a good tip (It's what I do when pissed off); take a deep breath, freak out, then... freak out some more and then and only then, I go back sitting behind my computer screen to express myself. But there's no more anger or irritation. I think that's a good way to say what you have to say without letting the other person think you're trying to hurt him/her, something like that.
Just a tip.
Another thing, in my opinion, you can't compare Jai'byrd to me. We're 2 different persons and each of us has a personality. Maybe a different personally, if you will. But whatever I'm trying to say is; I don't think comparing 2 persons is a right thing to do.

Either Sora is trying to be crazy on purpose and thinks it's funny, or is actually a neurotic mess.

I was a neurotic mess... once. Then I realized that most people are kidding when they say seemingly crude things, or if they're serious then they either may have some sort of point to consider, or they're just being a complete asshole and they aren't worth paying attention to.

One of my rules of life is to never take things too seriously... but at the same time, always take things somewhate seriously. It's all in the way you balance yourself.

Angel's right Sora. I've always maintained that it's twice as difficult to make a point on the internet than in any other medium (excluding other writen medium of course). You probably don't mean to come off as being confrontational but that is the way it is being interpeted. Which leads to conflicts like we keep running into.

And I know the feeling. I get SUPER irritated at some pretty minor crap in these Forums. Mostly because there is some misunderstanding or I misread intent in a post. And I'm alot like Jai in that respect... when I get irritated I tend to let people know it. :oops: My bad. And Jai is more patient than I am. But I always try to just leave the computer for awhile. Case in point; I ran across a post on another board (had NOTHING to do with any of the sites you frequent) that just pissed me off. Then more crap came up regarding that site (technical problems in my computer that I wont bore you with) so I gave myself a vacation from it until it didn't bother me quite so much. Which lasted about 8 days. Smetimes that's what it takes to get the head clear again. And there's nothing wrong with it. You just do what you need to do to make sure you don't post things that will be misread. For it is EASY to put a demeanor behind the written word that is not implied. I can't tell you how many times I have rewritten or simply deleated whole paragraphs of some of my posts when I KNOW I'm sounding like a prick and don't want to come off that bad. It happens dude. The trick is to know when it happens and when it might be happening on accident.

I know we have had our problems in the past. I don't make apologies for that. Some people just don't click. Thoth knows there are PLENTY of people I have met online that I don't relate to at all. And it does hurt to a degree. I really believe that it is natural for all humans to crave acceptance and companionship in groups. As a species we are very "pack-oriented". But sometimes it's not going to happen. And online it's likely to be just as common to be rejected as accepted. These groups tend to be VERY "clique" based. People of very like minds that don't want outsiders coming in to muck up their little slice of reality. I've been lucky to track boards that are more open... including this one. But even we are not without our own sense of the "pack". I KNOW I'm guilty of that attitude... at least in that my temper flares when someone fronts members of my pack... the people in what I call my Clan. I guess my point (damn, I do ramble don't I??) is that I'm not holding anything against you at the moment. I just wanted you to know that. Especially if you're hurt by this whole fiasco. Damn my empathetic nature sometimes! :wink: But seriously, whatever comes of this dude, I want ya to know that in the moment I'm sorry.
