You guys know what pretentious is: Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed.
The next question- how can something be pretentious if it is created by you? Have you stolen any material? Seriously stop using words that you do not understand.. Now that comment is a little pretentious by the fact that you don't know what the word pretentious is...
A picture can definitely be pretentious, and since you didnt get my comment Ill try to explain. We have this kinda "adam" looking figure above the clouds reaching out, and then maybe holding a 'divine' sword. This is a bit pretensions, just the setting and the atmosphere it is TRYING to set (to much, over the top, referencing to ... etc).
btw; seems like youre the one who doesnt really understand the meaning of the word outside its literal context. "how can something be pretentious when its created by you?" So I cant build a pretentious house, or car, or make pretentious clothes or whatever? of course I can, plus I can also qualify it as such.
and before this will result in a discussion about the meaning of the word, I will not go there, I am not a native english speaker so.. but I would like to point out that I did not really appreciate your comment, "srly stop using words you dont understand" its annoying and degrading. And since that is your first post on the NG forum ever, its also very juvenile.
