I am using GIMP, btw.

I should have phrased that... better.

That sucks, man. You should just get really good at ms paint until the opportunity to upgrade provides itself.

Long story short, I've caught alot of crap for some of my reviews *even though most of the bad ones deserved it* for not having my own stuff up on this site, but after trying multiple times most of my scanned pics are too big to submit and i am not the best at figuring this stuff out. I would like to shut up some of my haters so i would love any advice i can get to upload my personally drawn pictures *they are all pen/pencil drawings*.... please help cause i love this place and i want to not be just a critic, and i would love to show people what i can do and to get constructive criticism whenever possible.

what i do with picture i take with a hi-pixel count camera is click on the image and view in windows photo viewer... i then resize the image to a size i want and print screen... past into paint and cut it into paint... save as a .jpg for file size easiness and TADA... no magic, no problems, some profit?...

i know my way is less fancy, but i'm a ms paint guy :3

This... is an unhealthy mentality. Being afraid to post is just as toxic, if not more, than our douchery. And that street runs both ways with new posters as well. They shouldn't be afraid to post either.

I've been trying to not be such an ass lately. I hope I am making progress. Talking to people, even on the internet, is something I really need to learn.

To the Guy about the picture problem.

If you do not want to, or cannot download GIMP or some other editing software to re-size your picture, you could always taking a bit smaller photos. or smaller scans.
If you do the photo thing. This tutorial may come very in handy.

In a last bit of other good news, I finally have a job. This is also my reason for more lurking lately instead of posting.
Yay Electrical work! :P

Wow, lots of posts to respond to today.

@Lintire - Get a box, cut a hole in it, and tape a piece of paper in the hole and pretend it's a computer screen. Then just grab a pencil and viola, touch screen computer drawing.

Happy birthday to Ashman, even though I'm pretty sure he wont see these posts since he barely even lurks the forums anymore.

@Leggy - Stop creeping all the females in the art forum, we want to GAIN new members, not scare them off.

Kind of demotivating

I wouldn't think of that as Demotivating he is a man of a few styles but I personally like Mechs drawn by Keith Thompson better.

i Wish adobe illustrator wasn't so damn expensive! i like the tools it has to offer but the price is just what? mega demotivator into purchasing it, that price is like a total turn off! but then again i might have to get it eventually.

That is all.

Concerns of the bill.
Piracy< Censorship
There's nothing wrong with piracy unless someone else directly profits from the product imo. Piracy has actually helped me make my mind on buying lots of things.

So last exam of the semester today, means I'll be home tonight.
Hopefully I can find some time tomorrow and upload a bunch of stuff for everyone who's been anxiously awaiting to see what I've done. And for those of you who haven't been.... cheese.

yes, look a few posts ago, i had an issue (and still have it on them thumbnails) where the image has been taken from people in my scouts list rather then the art itself, possibly some sort of overwritten code?... im sure if i cleaned out my internet memory and tried again it might work :P...

also what problems are you having?

Pirated Photoshop + Commissions = Illegal?

Either way, I'm still not spending 500 dollars on that program.

If you steal food from a store, with plans to eat the food, not resell it
is it still illegal? yes
your intentions are not what matters, you're using something for free that would normally require a payment to have.
it's not even like it's the only decent option anymore, there are so many programs that do what photoshop does for drawing.
and does those things better than photoshop does.
because photoshop is a photo editing program, and always has been.
