Please please PLEASE don't reply to him.
I know it's tempting but don't.
Just... don't.
I don't think it's worth telling him the time of day, and you shouldn't either.
If he can't figure out why everyone's upset with him by now, then he'll never figure it out.

Shoot, I didn't mean 'sampled', I meant 'derived'. Me not know the music lingo. :/

I like that piano building, too. I guess I do get inspiration from sources other than music.. but music is what drives me the most!

On the subject of inspiration, I have recently run dry of the imagination I held so dear as a child. Now I deprive myself of sleep to hallucinate and feed off of depression. Which hopefully explains to most people why my stuff looks the way it does. It has actually driven me to literally hate art. I want to bleed whatever bit of "art" there is from my body and mind and be done with it forever before it ends me.

Personal question for you guys, does the date of signing up affect how people look at your art? For instance if some guy signs up yesterday and post mediocre work, are you more harsh or forgiving? Like the only thing I have right now is the stupid thing on my page, and was wondering if you guys would act like sharks like you did with that fruitykiwi guy who didn't add a mothe-loving cannon to his blue bimbo.

Joining date or skill has nothing to do with it.
It's all about humility and the will to learn.
If you're willing to step out of your comfort zone and try different styles, try different techniques and learn the basics, you'll get far. It's not only true to the art forums, it applies to any discipline.
No matter where you go, there's going to be people who are better than you.
If you can accept that fact and muster the resolve to learn from those people, then your artwork will definitely improve.
And that's really all anyone is saying here.
You need to master the basics before you even think of drawing in the style of your choice.
Otherwise you end up with wonky anatomy and half-assed backgrounds.

In this particular case the user had just created said account to avoid a ban and a poor reputation. For me signup date doesn't matter unless it was created within the same week as posting.

As someone who spends much more time on general where post-count fascism can sometimes be atrocious, I can hoenstly say the art forum is the best I have ever seen for disregarding this meaningless date stamp


I'm not banned, this is just where I'm vulgar.

That's because unlike general, the art forums has other ways of measuring someone's credibility.

It's more your attitude and how I see you treat other members, more than anything else I'd hold you up to.

It's all about general stats: amount of forum posts, level, rank etc. Personally I won't look at another artists work unless their at least a level 10. Every user should sell their social life in an attempt to gain notoriety in the NG art portal.

No way! It's easy to vote on 5 flash movies a day and even easier to spam the forums. But lets see you go back in time to sign up earlier. Being here longer than others is a huge achievement that makes you worthy of love, respect, and even charity. That said, checks made out to cash pls.

Challenge accepted. I will now retreat to the shed to begin hitting bits of metal with a hammer and staring at test tubes with a look of pure concentration, something is bound to happen eventually, right?

I told you sea biscuit was a guy, he's not a goddamn horse, I'm sorry you can't tell the difference between a guy with a horse head and an actual horse.

To Lulzy and anyone who dare: DO NOT make a video of me. I find one, and I find you have an NG account, I will report you. You have been warned. See you in a month. And if that time passes by, and I still haven't improved my attitude, then and ONLY then will I allow you to make a video of me. No ifs, ands or buts.

Again, see you on Christmas day, after which I will be gone from the art forum for another week. Like I said, make a video of me, BEFORE any of those times I have perscribed, and I will report you. You have been warned.

Um if I draw Mario will I get sued by Nintendo. No I won't and you won't be able to sue fucking anyone. If someone draws better than you, than your artwork will become even more of a joke.

That's because Nintendo is ALLOWING you to draw Mario. I, however, am NOT allowing anyone to make a derivative work of mine, regardless of how good it is, unless it is shared with ME and only ME. I have that "Do Not Alter" part of the Creative Commons License on my art. And if you violate that, and draw my art without my permission, that violates that Creative Commons License, and I have the option of pursuing charges. If I wanted to let you re-draw something of mine and display it publicly, I would have had no problems with it in the first place, REGARDLESS of the license. Now, either obey the fucking rules, or get reported. Take your pick.

Well that brings up an interesting question

If Kiwi is right (citations needed) how much could you alter something until it is no longer the same thing

Like if you wanted to make something that looked like Mario, how close could you get to Mario until it is too much like Mario?

its perfectly legal to make fanart of mario or make alterations for mario as long as it's non profit. Watch this if you have the time and are interested in the subject http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKBsTUjd910

Or if you started with Mario, how much are you required to adjust him so that there are legal distinctions between the Original and the End Result?
