So Browsing CTRLPaint and came across this Video. It says its for beginners, but is more of a little quick motivational speech. It made me feel good. So I thought I would share it.

Was just admiring some behind-the-scenes pics of certain movies (shared by scarab in the chat), and I thought I'd share it for your amusement.

check out the Shining and Star Wars pics

Hey.

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I'm taking a safe bet and will just ask here:

How much would it cost for someone to make a design for a blog (blogspot)?
Is there a certain price range or is it really different, based on the artist?

I'm not necessarily talking about the whole layout of a blog (CSS and all other coding), more like just the background and header.
And how much would it be for the whole shebang?

I'm sure someone here has some knowledge or experience with this.

So yeah, thanks in advance and whatnot.

That completely depends on the artist you want to make them. Some work through fixed rates (say, they charge 100 bucks a picture), others charge by the hour. Most artists who work commercially often do have a page dedicated to their rates, best to check for that first, but otherwise your best bet is really to just email an artist you have in mind and ask for a quote. That sort of straightforwardness is appreciated and there's no obligation to hire them if they're out of your price range.

As for how much you can expect to pay; well, maybe you hire a digital painter who charges 20 bucks an hour, it'll run you 200 or so for a fully rendered header and background as a conservative estimate. Compare that to hiring a vector artist to get you a couple of toons to fill out the page and you might be able to get them for 20 bucks.

It's all on you, pal.

Personally if I was going to make an insane request it'd be something random in the style of American Gothic (because that hasn't been done to the death).


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

Wow. Some immense scrotum just zero bombed every one of the newest submissions on the art portal. I can deal with the concentrated hate but really? Every submission? Is there no way to stop zero spam? I hear the audio portal has it even worse.

I just gave you a 5 on your eva 02 not more than 20 minutes ago. But I wouldn't worry too much about it, your setting pretty on votes, views, and reviews.

Thanks but my own work is not the primary concern for me.I've actually been getting zeros pretty consistently since I openly criticized a certain artist. Some of my pieces get bombed four or five times a day. Hell some pieces I made months ago are still getting bombed. At first it was a shock because I didn't think I had any enemies, but I've come to understand why some people might hate my attitude.

The part that bothers me is that theres someone just trying to give everyone a hard time in the most ass way possible. Single handedly breaking the entire system.

So does anyone here wanna bother with HiryuGouki? I'm kind of spent trying to reason with the buffoon, he only listens to the first few things a person says and considers them insults, or worse passes everything off as a "stylized piece."

I saw simple graphic circles at the Tate Britain on my tour of London and never understood how that was art, I think HiryuGouki thinks that of himself. That his art is on par with the greats, and deserves to be Archived.

I understand, sorry ReNaeNae, I do remember his name popping up in the lounge a few months back. I just want this guy to at least listen to one person.

Scores are really just a number. I don't know how many times I've heard of this. You're already a great artist, that's the reason why I don't understand why you're so worked up about people giving you a low score. Do you really need something as petty as that to confirm your impressive skills? You don't need to succeed in the art portal. I stopped giving a fuck about the art a long time ago. And I advise you do the same. (regarding scores)

Nah I have stopped caring. I just mentioned it because they not only zero bombed my pieces, but pretty much every submission that was made around that time this morning. If it was just mine I wouldn't have even mentioned it. I have a blog wherein I can vent my frustrations. And the last time I wrote about it was 3 months ago.

I just don't see what the motivation is in being a dick to everyone without any provocation. Like what inspires a person to just be like "hey, I'mma just go and shit on everyone in the Art Portal today". That kinda ticked me off.

I hate trolling and, in the same vein, I hate people who just want to ruin someone's day for no reason.

Meh. It's just so...stupid? I get rating bombed on a daily basis. Took a bit, but I'm used to it.

The thing is I started off in the portal with a lot of art experience. No amount of BS could discourage me, because I had already invested many years into art. But for a new guy, I imagine quitting is a very easy option...

I don't really like the idea of an Art Portal that discourages people from practicing art.

I think that anyone worrying about their score in the portal in the first few days it gets put up is wasting their time. There are so few votes on most of the new pieces that any vote drastically changes the score. Eventually if the person is good enough to warrant further looks at their stuff the scores will start averaging out to what they should be.

And someone would have to be rather dedicated to zero bombing to start effecting a piece that has a solid number of votes behind it. If you feel this is happening to you however and have a suspect try talking to wade to see if he can prove it for you. It wouldn't be the first time users have been punished for senseless and relentless zero bombing.

TBH, I have no idea. It's easy to pinpoint a hater based on motive, but if someone is just doing it without rhyme or reason it's p. much impossible to put a name to it. I don't think there is a true motive to zero bombing the entire New Art section other than simply being an angry individual. It just bothered me is all.

There is still technically a reason for it regardless of how unclear that reason is, one reason I can understand is a want to troll, as there is simply no way to regulate this, we are stuck in a system that can be easily perverted, the only thing we can do it ask that voters express human decency, but if you assume that decency is commonplace on the internet, then one has not traveled far into the depths of the internet, nor do they know of the unholiness that can come of the netizens ( http://7chan.org/ ).

In my opinion a better system would be to tie the voting process to writing a review and consider the value of that vote on how well the community likes said review, removing the simple vote only option, however looking upon said system I can see many ways that perversion can take place.

Cypress, one such as yourself should not dwell on such things, your art is such high quality most will simply outvote the outliers, as for the lower class of artists such as myself, we'll make do, I personally care not and merely accept what I'm given, beggars cannot be choosers, its better than riling yourself up wasting precious hours in the day in a ruined mood, let us not forget that emotion follows inspiration.
