  1. These changes actually all sound fantastic. It's more inclusive to everyone and brings back the spirit of graphic-making. I also think the rule about only evaluating for promotions those who apply specifically for it is a great idea - not to mention I'm sure it cuts back on work for the staff
  2. I, too, rarely comment on things like this - and I can hardly be accused of being TDA's most active member. However, I feel the need to say something because I'm surprised it's taken this long for the whole "trendy stock images" thing to get some blowback. Graphic-making is an incredibly relevant art in 2015 because so much of popular culture, media, etc, is done online. Every website has advertisements and banners, every movie has a poster, every television show has billboards down L.A. streets. The fact that this website is populated with hundreds of artists could easily put many people in

  11. Woah. Can I just say? Your signatures. Your signatures. I honestly might request something from you, they are just GORGEOUS. Like. Your image quality is so good, and your use of colors and textures is so simple. Ah, man. Congrats on the recent promotion though! I was gonna say, you deserve grad for sure

Second, AH i'm so GLAD you say they're 'adventurous' that's like the nicest thing anyone
  13. WHY HELLO THERE, MS. DAISY! I thought I'd come by to return the favor of a gallery critique because I haven't done one in ages, and you had such pretty stuff! First off, let me just say that you are totally and completely on the right track - I know what beginning artists' work looks like when they are on track to fly through the ranks, and you for sure have work like this! So just keep doing what you're doing. I really love your first set of icons - I'm kind of a sucker for that 'cloudy' looking filter just because it's so stupidly simple but can make a graphic look SO GOOD. Some of your c
  14. I have a question, actually, one that I've kind of been meaning to ask for a while What is the difference in the importance of copyright laws depending on whether or not you're making money off of these graphics? I think it's fairly safe to say that none of the artists here are making money off of the particular graphics they use on this site, so is the credits list really necessary in personal galleries? However, if we were to take one of these graphics (say a professional company was interested in it), and put it towards a project that would earn monetary gain, then of course these credits
  15. ERMERGERD...your stuff is so flawless, i'm so glad you dropped by ^_^ and thank you for such nice compliments!!! talk to you soon!
  16. Thank you so much guys for the nice promotion compliments, guys! Karine, thanks so much! I really appreciate you coming by. Sarah, thanks! I wanted to do something with Billie Piper and it ended up coming out pretty cute Thanks again!
  17. hey karine!!! i'm lindsey...returning the favor of a gallery looksie…. :DD ALSO CONGRATS ON YOUR PROMO!!! :DDD light blue is the best color anyway so no sweattttt I absolutely ADORE your "all hail our dark lord" banner…it reminds me of a style of banner-making that has long since been lost, that i really, REALLY used to love. it was around a lot a few years ago and i miss it. it's gorgeous. but OH GOD the "i'll burn you" sig is gorgeous…i can't stop staring. it's so crisp and beautiful and LKAJDHFADSFKJH there are no words, darling. at first glance, you could probably ditch your
  18. TDA, where it's perfectly acceptable to stay up until 3am because YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BED UNTIL YOU GET THE COLOR BALANCE RIGHT, SO HELP YOU GOD.

  19. HAHA Awww thanks em!! I'm very pleased, I only just saw the results now :3 and you are such a GOLDEN GEM OF LOVE with your presents!!! omggg look at eleven, he pointed at me. i'm already feeling more special than usual. holllaaaa. anyway you're awesome and thanks so much for stopping by <3
  20. Oy, I have so many replies to do to so many wonderful people so here I go! BrightEyes - Thank you so much!! That's really very sweet of you ^_^ But yes, I totally agree with you on the filtering bit. Sometimes I get way too excited, and I need to clean out some of the more sickeningly sweet ones (my term for something too over-filtered XD) And I'm pretty much done with my one or two-week long obsession with Topaz, so I think we're good, haha. Thanks fro stopping by! ellcrys. - Hey Jacinta! Well, that is really, really good news because I have been struggling with icons for quite a wh

      HAHAHA. Actually, the funny thing is that I have a TON of friends who watch it, I adore Sherlock Holmes, and I know without a doubt that I would love the show and be obsessed with it once I watched it. I just literally HAVE NOT HAD THE TIME to do so, xDD. So, I'm restringing my guitar and watching the first episode...it's difficult LOL But I'm still trying.

  24. well, they just fail XDD
