  1. orange looks hot. cant wait to see the numbers on the 850 though
  2. 2, i actually sketched the car out on paper and scanned it after looking at the original. so i didnt just trace the image, i traced my recreation and if you don't believe i can do that with any amount of accuracy ill be happy to post my graphite work. i also never requested a critique to the best of my knowledge now plz let this topic die...
  3. i dont really care what he does. he said i used live trace and i didn't... so i dont know how good he could be at his job when he thinks i used live trace and got the result i got. i penned every line by hand.
  4. it's amazing that whenever chuck says it no one questions it or calls him an idiot. thx chuck. and those of you who are accusing me of using live trace, clearly have never used the live trace, because it doesnt give u this as soon as i finish installing all my stuff on my new computer ill save a hi-res version of the vector image. each defining line is stylized and different from the other. so how dare u accuse me of using live trace. gtfo iv already put this topic to bed so let it die. if its so immature in this topic then stop posting.
  5. respect the flag, we are Swedish nationalist! awesome. if i had listen to my teachers i would probably have the same outlook on copyrighting as you. thank god i didnt. mabye i should consider a different line of work. ill tell Savannah College of Art and Design i wont be attending next year because i clearly know nothing about art, which makes them idiots for accepting me. and clearly they dont know anything about art. anyway you are right i was fairly upset and i apologize for starting any drama. i've had a lot on my shoulders lately and it all came crashing down in the safest place to lash out... the internet. congrats mike on the win.
  6. adults don't get upset? i put reason behind my frustration, i didnt just flame out and call everyone gay.
  7. bro you said it was free. you are still wrong. like i said it makes it easier to prove. uploading is a form of publishing. you said you were willing to bet on it so dont roll ur eyes when you've been proven wrong just learn from it.
  8. In the USA and almost every other major nation, almost everything created privately and originally after April 1, 1989 is copyrighted and protected whether it has a notice or not. The default you should assume for other people's works is that they are copyrighted and may not be copied unless you know otherwise. quote from copyright.gov "Copyright protects “original works of authorship” that are fixed in a tangible form of expression. The fixation need not be directly perceptible so long as it may be communicated with the aid of a machine or device. Copyrightable works include the following categories: 1. literary works; 2. musical works, including any accompanying words 3. dramatic works, including any accompanying music 4. pantomimes and choreographic works 5. pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works 6. motion pictures and other audiovisual works 7. sound recordings 8. architectural works These categories should be viewed broadly. For example, computer programs and most “compilations” may be registered as “literary works”; maps and architectural plans may be registered as “pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works.”" im currently pursuing a degree in art. dont try and read me the copyright laws that you clearly know nothing about. watermarks are merely a means of further sercuring your work. it like putting a lock on a door. the house belongs to you, the lock makes it harder to get in without access.
  9. it does not need a watermark. the second you upload any of your personal work and images it has a copyright on it. the only thing the watermark does is that is serves as the easiest way of proving that its yours in court. so ya...
  10. wow, i was really hoping this community would step back and look at these posters artistically. i put a good 20 hours into mine because i was expecting the same from the other contestants. these were suppose to be displayed in malls or at least that was the idea behind making them. And in the spirit of making professional posters i also thought that implied copyright laws. contrary to popular belief pulling pictures off google and using them is considered copyright infringement. im not even gonna spend my time tearing apart whats wrong with # 8 because im just too angry. i guess i should have expected this from a community who up load pictures with boarders and call them artistic and tell everyone to lower and put pegs on their car and tell people who try different things that their cars are ugly and they should change it (black eyebrows on silver car ring a bell?) well congrats to number 8 for earning 150 dollars from 15 minutes worth of work. GG graphic design. i guess people really are suckers for B&W with a color scheme on top. /end rant p.s. i apologize for any feeling hurt or people offended im just tried of being undercut by photochopped pictures and work. good day and good luck for the rest of the competition MGaglione
