Seriously. I've been gone for .. a while, and I get back to see almost one, maybe two replies a DAY in the artwork forum. Replies, not even new art... have people just lost interest or something? Because personally I find it a little hard to believe that with so many people coming here, almost no new pieces being posted is just, well, a shame. There used to be so many artists here, all of them eager to finish their current project just so they can start the next one.

I ask myself... what happened to those people?

I think the community probably did what it always does: *****, complain, and accuse until everyone has left. When certain people left, I'm sure others felt there was no longer a reason to post their pieces since there wasn't really anyone with advanced knowledge left to judge them or help them improve.

Don't worry though. I painted a portrait of Mr. Puggles and sent it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and told them if they wanted to see the rest of my work, they should visit the forum. They should be here any day now.

Any day now.

:(

Hmm. This is.. wow. Something with a nail and head comes to mind.

Well yea.. Only stuff that gets posted around here is paint stuff that isn't even advanced enough.. Sometimes you see someone popup like likued, but apart from the 2-3 'zomg godly'-replies, you get nothing.. Then a paintdrawing is posted, and 50 ppl jump in to state how the artist is a god of gods.

For an example of what Bolteh means, read my threads.

Bunch of sycophants.

Unfortunately.. too true. It's not that paintdrawing isn't considered an art in my eyes, but at least comment on other stuff as well. I really don't have a standard about a certain amount of awesomeness a project must have before being considered art, but.. there has been like 3, maybe 4 new pieces posted here in a week. And after reading the "omg 20,000 members" thread, I can't help but wonder where the people that would like their art get critisized and commented on, have gone.

I miss them.

And here I was being scared to post anything because.. well.. I remember the last time I used a stock, yes a STOCK PICTURE, I got accused of being a ripper for not crediting the original maker of the stock. I'll be glad to post my latest piece, or pieces, but the least I can ask for is some constructive criticism isn't it?

Well, when you have potential Vincent Goghs (like me) painting horses, you just can't go wrong?

Am I right?

Right?

:paper: <----This is an abstract post. What relevance does this paper icon have? Think hard, and look deep.

I look at it like this.

This is a HL mod forum... you can't expect the artwork section to be a national museum.

Though, the place was rather busy... but with the lack of progress in the mod, so followed the lack of activity on parts of the forum.

Who knows... maybe the open beta will spark a ressurgance on all fronts.

Well.. in all honesty, I was never here for the mod. ;)

And this place WAS a treasury. There used to be so many artists creating so many good pieces. And a good place to start rekindling people's interest in art would be to start commenting on everything that does gets posted.

I don't know. Maybe it's just wishful thinking. :(
