    What I feel is "cheating" on my part isn't using a direct image and calling it my own, but using it as a template to paint upon. Think of "template" as more the line of "stencil". I suppose I use it as a coloring book.
    Actually, I wasn't trying to insinuate that you, on your behalf, take an original image, slapping a few filters on it, and boom, hey look what I did, that's wasn't what I thought at all when you mentioned "cheating," although, granted, what you mentioned earlier, is pretty common, and rolled into the term, generally speaking of "rendering"...

    ...but what I was also referring to, concerning the definition, was using the program as a medium in the literal sense, to either enhance or apply to the image. I do it all the time, using colored pencil to apply to watercolor, literally, which is becoming more common digitally. Would I be correct to assume that you take ploygon templates and texturize them, or am I totally off on what you're using?

    I wasn't sure, so thank you for clarifying. My reading skills probably aren't what they used to be.

    I strongly dislike that use of the term. Not only do the amateurs who use other peoples' work and call it their own, they also call the extracted product a "render." As a matter of fact, there exists actual sites where you can find cutouts of characters and such from games. Those persons who submit these pieces often put their names on the piece and get very angry when someone uses it without giving "credit" though the former gave no such credit to the original author or copyright owner. Sorry for the soapbox.

    Yep, that's me.

    Not at all, I was just trying to read in between the lines as to what you where implying; it was late...but wasn't there another, formal term for what you mentioned, taking a finshed pic (s), whether it be your own or not, and digitally "colage" it? I always called it "filtering" or "digital application," but I don't call it graphic "art," because it's not a "creation," or even "recreation"; it's just a colage, which I've noticed alot of the digital work here is, especially with sigs.

    Yep, that's me.
    Gotcha...by spouse does the same...not professionally, it's just a hobby, but he used to do it making starships and then "paint" or texturize the model he assembled.

    dammit Skorge u are so wierd hahahaha but ur ok i dont mind.LOL hahaha and thats nice to know Jonsey and Skorge wtf why wuld i ask for nudy pics Jesus bro u scare me!LOL hahaha
    With SKORGE, that's just scratching the surface...but on my behalf, my spouse and I pull this stuff all the time (not posting erotic pics online, mind you) but...for example, as a practical joke, he illustrated (by hand) and composed a GoW calander (for me) with a Gear, in pose, for each month...and it was just wrong, so wrong ...but at the same time, it was still funny.

    to OP:

    whow he even more scary than the orginal.. in my opinion.
    got to be the fact that his R eye seem to have an different look at at
    than his left "the way i read your picture"
    almost makes him more insane. COOL.
    I dont have clue whut i just said, so try too pardon me.

    LOL!

    Jonesy, that is wrong, and that's coming from me!
    I'll check in every now and again but for the most part, I won't be as active as I was previously. It really was the Gears + people that got me posting on here in the first place. Unless Epic release an awesome game or something. I'm leaving this message because I'm obviously a very, very important person.

    Hope to see a lot of you on the BT Forums! - 11/02/2014 (lol)

    mm ah yes left..

    and i didnt know, i spend a lot of time drooling over mostly gears1 splendour,
    and redid the end level like an dozen times..
    "yes i am that bad"
    yet i never noticed that raams left eye was bigger than his right.

    Still i notice it on your drawing and its way cool. I also like the grittyness of the pencil drawing.
    ps: your idea as icons for the character MP selection in lobby way cool.
    I dont have clue whut i just said, so try too pardon me.
