I suppose this would finally be an appropriate place for people to ask their dumb questions regarding how to make flash movies with MS paint as well. Fantastic.

Can i say pointless? , Seems like upon making this the moderation of the art forum will be exponentialy cut, along with this most likely being spammed with random jizz (Example the "Reg lounge {Flash forum}".

Personaly it's a bad idea , but hey-ho whatever Bmk want's Bmk gets.

Open discussion? Ok then. Is everyone happy with just an Art forum or would anyone else prefer an entire Art section?

I dont think its a bad idea, it's a good place for people to discuss techniques, or the people who need to ask something art related but have nothing to show can post.

well, since noone has posted nothing useful here yet, i wonder why...
i will take this chance to say hello to everyone (well that sure ain't useful but :P)
and to congratz everyone who improved on their art, new or old, mean or kind,
and to celebrate every holiday you celebrate, for surely i will forget it when its the right time,
understand i want to be friends with everybody and anybody who is good enough not to say f**k you motherf**ker when you say hi to him :)
well, nothing more to say :)


my user page, visit, leave a comment, help out
I don't paint, if you want a sketch or a graphic black & white drawing call me ;) Check my DeviantArt site :)

As bitch stated, it's also gonna be a flood place for idiots not knowing wtf to do and people who refuse to read the rules.

But once again "Ditto to my previous bmk line"

I'm hoping it will end up being a place where the regulars can post about other things than personal art. This thread is already on thin ice, so to speak, I'm testing it out and seeing where it goes. It is by no means a fixture at this point.

You lightened my day.

Are you guys going to allow "Does anyone else think the NG BBS is ruined by 9-year olds these days?"-questions? Please say no.

I mean, this sort of thing didn't really work out so well in the past, but I have always felt like it would be a good idea.

i hope it does.

but i'm afraid that this will end up being buried under the usual crap that floats on the surface here...

let's just hope someone has something interesting to talk about..then all we would need would be a way to keep the idiots out...

come to think of it...locking it would be easyer...

Ok, question then:
on another thread (The Wankah! one) somebody did a picture of the heavy and removed the color layer to reveal only the highlight and shadow layers...
I got the impression that this was perhaps a photoshop job and what are the purposes of those layers and how do you use them?

(at the risk of sounding like a complete noob, because I am).

I'm sure some poor confused souls will spam, but then they'll go back to the general forum where they belong.

Any way anybody here have any suggestions for a new sig for me? I want to make it myself, just can't think of anything great at the moment.

In PS you can set the layer with the line art to overlay or multiply in the layer properties, this allows you to paint on a new layer underneath without disturbing the line work.

Ah, thanks! (Heads off to do experimentation...)

Thanks again!

why yes I have. I had an art project and we each got assigned a different technique. I did not like it. lots of time it took me, and very annoying, i would post the thing because it turned out pretty good, but the teacher never gave them back....

What does everyone think of Neil Gaiman's work? (Particularly the "Sandman" series.) Just trying to find out if he's still as popular as he ought to be... Or maybe recruit some new fans!

P.S. He doesn't do the art, but he writes the stories for comics.

I was introduced to the"Sandman" series a couple of years back, and I do still like it even to this day (dare I say, I always will).
