get a thicker skin, no one's work is that perfect and commentary is welcomed weather it's positive or negative. As long as some sane reasoning is followed.

I dunno how I egged him on, have no clue. No one can make you do anything you don't want to do. If I did something to set him off like that, he should've been man enough to tell me, I don't BS anyone I'm straight to the point, if you're too sensitive,

Vic, I saw the whole thing unfold. You did egg him on. But that's in the past, and we're here today. Talking about votes and I think it's good things are out in the open. Now get out there and create and vote fair!

his drunken tirade threw me for a loop, as a military man he's a disgrace for what he said, but then again he was drinking.

My advice would be to invest in Adobe Creative Cloud. Best value for money for any creative person on the planet! PS used to be so expensive. Now you can get the whole suite for peanuts a month. Good for them. Good for you.

Funny how vicspa is behind you on the votes when he's the one who started the low votes on me. So where is Lars? ...I know all about layers and blending. I often use over 20 layers in each chop, sometimes merging them when I feel they are just right.

I'm gonna stop. I hate being negative. I always like to point out things people did well and offer my opinion of what i may have done differently, for better or worse. And finish on a positive. KKK principle of critique. Kiss, kick, kiss.

I hope WhisperingSage is listening. For you, champ...do you have any idea of the number of effects, layers, custom brushes, blending modes, separations of colour and texture and reblending of those colours and textures, that it takes? 50-55? Insulting.

Don't we all think that solid effort should be marked as such? Art is always subjective, for sure, but understanding of technique should be a contributing factor. I take it into consideration, whether it's to my taste or not. I assume others would too.

The only way it will change is if we vote according to what we think it's actually worth. I will be doing that from now on. The norm dictates the rules. Maybe, those who undervote will become the exception, not the rule.

I may not be the bees knees, but I know quality and skill when I see it. I see a lot of skilled work being underscored, my own included. Why the conservative scoring? There are some good ideas and work here. They deserver to be acknowledged.

Let's keep it open. No PM. I know I'm new but the scoring seems ridiculously conservative to me. I'm a graphic designer. Photoshop is not my speciality, obviously, but I've started doing this to practice and improve my skill set.

Maybe if everyone just uped the scoring by 10 across the board it would reflect the quality of the work more realisticaly,but then it would have to be a collective effort ¿ right ? Grin alt

I've been entering here regularly now for only a month and a half and the low scoring was already happening then so I had to adjust or get clobbered.No idea why the scoring dynamic changed but would be nice to know and somehow try to get it back to normal

What was it like a year ago, out of interest? I've only been doing this a week or so...why did it change? Shouldn't we rate each other honestly, so we can all grow and improve?

I don't mind coming second because yours was my favourite entry (apart from my own, obviously haha). But it bothers me when my techniques are critiqued by someone who can't see the 30 layers underneath the work. Ok...that's my rant for the day.. :)

Well, I guess it keeps it competitive. I was, however, a little offended at the low scores for my ice cube titanic entry. That had some serious work in it - even working manually in texture frequency - but I guess not everyone's cup of tea.

It’s weird, though. Even though my scores apparently don’t count yet, I already feel compelled to vote a certain way because people seem afraid to vote over 70. I mean, really, some are worth 80+ but ppl seem reluctant to score appropriately.

also gotta keep in mind that there second light source coming from upper right so that would also affect whether the bars would cast a shadow on the back wall No words

It may do. Possibly a solid shadow from the unseen left wall and keeping the bars shadows suitably blurred and towards the bottom right might help? Of course, I could be wrong, as I often am, and it might not work.

Great use of lighting and nicely contoured. Really creates the mood. Nice work on the prison shirt, too. Like the bright whites. Some patient masking on the bars. Really woulda popped with bars shadows on the back wall, though. Nice execution. Nice idea.
