Quote by Astara It is not a
matter of bending the rules. It's that the ones that are considered walls show garbage in the background (except for the
middle one with the trees in the background), vs. mine shows what was actually there in the anime. It is supposed to be
reflective of actual anime.
It's objectionable for you to consider this an "anime" site when real anime gets treated like
If you want to label yoursellf a "fine-art" site -- fine. I won't complain. But if you are going to claim to
be jp-infested anime site, start accepting things that are at least the quality of real anime. That you don't indicates
an intolerance of anime -- if you hate real anime so much and believe it is so crappy, why would you even want to
associate yourself with the anime label in the first place? Is it just to use the label because it's popular and to draw
people in -- only to be stomped on when they submit something that is art based off real anime? That doesn't make
As for Valuna's comment -- your response was arrogant, elitist and just disgusting. That you would give someone such
feed back on their fourth wallpaper is a strong indicator of a sociopathic personality. Do you really hate.
I think what Cy pointed out about the site growing from a welcoming site for newbies to being a snob site that rejects
them is much of what is going on. The "professionals" should have gone on and created a new professional
website with professional standard rather than redirecting/repurposing this one the more you go toward being
professional and away from being those who simply love anime -- the more you are moving away from the anime community.
Relabel yourself as a professional art site -- but be clear about it. You invite these mishaps and protests by appearing
to be part of the anime community -- which has been and still is largely composed of people who love anime -- not
I feel your posing as an anime fan site, but only allowing "professional art", is deceptive and harmful to
both anime and its fans. Certainly those who go around thinking they are better than everyone else and having no qualms
about putting other people's work down falls under the label of personal attacks -- something frowned on in the
As for the comment on tracing -- if I look at some of the tutorials on vectoring -- they look more like they are tracing
something than anything else. My use of the word trace comes from the comment at the top of this page: "If the piece looks more like it's highlighting your vectoring skills then it now belongs over
there." Vectoring alone should not be considered a criteria for whether something is a wall.
And Alenas, I am not trying to bend any rules -- am only going from the examples listed above and the comments --
certainly that wasn't just a vectoring job but required alot of creativity. I've had nothing but complements on it on
any other site I've submitted it to -- and had compliments on how good it was from the user community here before it was
removed. The only negative comments have come from the elite admins, here, that are only looking for professional art.
That's not anime. It *can* be doushinji -- where many artbooks come from, but anime itself... virtually none of it would
qualify for submission on this website -- which, to me, disqualifies this site as an anime website.
To prevent disgust over in a supposedly helpful topic. I will reply on your guestbook about this.
First of, about me. I stopped being nice after you, being thickheaded about your wallpapers/art and needing to explain
it a couple times before. Why wouldn't I get a bit harsher to finally let the bullet smash your brain. Yes, I do hate
the fact that you keep on bragging about this and making drama. It would do everyone a good pleasure that you take your
wallpaper to the sandbox and ask what is wrong with it and what has to be done to get it in the wallpaper gallery. No,
no, no...instead, you keep posting and posting and now you turned to the quality of this site.
Are you seriously that blind to see the difference? It is not a contest of how well you recreate something. People make
it their own, personal work by using the base of a series/character they like. If it has to be reflective to actual
anime, it is most appreciated when it stands out on its own, like a painting. Just check the number of favourites on
wallpapers. ones that actually reach 100, are pretty damn amazing and they deserve it. 50 is pretty good aswell, no
complains. People fave the works they like, so you are saying people have garbage tastes aswell?
a few points cuz I cba writing properly anymore;
- I have given enough examples of why your wallpaper belongs in the indy art section.
- Real anime is not treated like garbage here. Stop being offensive already.
- Jp-infested ART site, not anime site you dummy.
- Your wallpaper is not of best quality. Call me elitist and rude but it is amateuristic. It is something anyone can
make that just got into vectoring.
- You may consider it the best thing ever, but it really isn't.
- Newbies are welcome, they normally go to the sandbox for help..unlike you.
- We encourage newbies to qualify for the gallery. So, we help them and give them any practical info to make their work
Seriously, just shut your mouth about all these things and go to the freaking sandbox with your wallpaper. Explain, give
your sources and ask for opinions. Simple as that. Want me to do it for you? I don't mind doing it but it is really the
creators choice to be willing to have a better wallpaper or indy art themselves.
