alpha battles: no digital?????

Recommended Posts

i think we should get rid of the digital images in tha alpha battles...

 

i think its not fair to all, and plus, half tha shit people do in that digital world, is impossible to do in sketches or on a wall/train..

 

keep it real, and stick to paper... thats my vote..

 

except maybe defy cuz he started that whole shit, or maybe even not... i think its just defeating the purpose of the sketch battles...

 

tease:mad:

yeah, i agree, it isnt fair, and you cant really judge skill that way.

but then again, people like tesseract do incredible stuff with it that no matter who you are, cant be achieved in reality.

i dunno. do what you want.

(a) what's not fair about it? I haven't had a set of markers in a decade, is it unfair to me when someone does a colored piece with markers? Or, since I have a huge box full of acrylics and can paint my ass of with them, would it be unfair if I busted some acrylics since not everyone has the loot for 50 8 dollar tubes of liquitex?

 

(B) as I've said before, there is no "do graffiti" button in photoshop, so how it detracts from a playful sketch battle is beyond me.

 

If you really want to make it fair, and make it all about letters then have one rule and one rule only NO COLOR. Otherwise it's just silly.

i think, for the most part, it shouldnt really matter.. it all comes from the persons head anyway.

 

The only thing i might object to is the crazy photoshop fills... that dosnt really take any personal or creative skill to create.

to create the effect itself, no, you just run a filer. to make it look good? to pick the right colors and use an effect in the right place? of course it takes skill and creativity.

i dont really consider someone to be 'creative' when they're using programmed effects that anyone can use.

I'm not going to argue the point. I will ask- do you use photoshop?

Keep the digital.

 

If you've been around the digital realm for a while, you can easily spot what a programmed effect is, and what was actually created with originality.

 

Digital is a different skill, it's another tool. It makes certain things easier, it can add flashiness, but if you know enough about design you can see through this flashiness and determine if the creation itself is good or not. Example: that DFEKT guy who pussied out of the C battle. His stuff was flashy, it looked impressive, but his composition sucked, he used cliched elements, and it clearly looked like he didn't take enough time to tweak it. I've seen that style well executed, and it kicks ass... he just wasn't there yet.

 

And I don't see why "paintability" is an issue... if it is, then I'll have to stop doing my robotic stuff cause it's next to impossible to paint. This battle should be about how far you can take letters and their forms, regardless of medium. Let the kids who have the tools and the skill to go digital do so. Beer,

first off there is nothing wrong with tha digital images...

 

when i said its not fair, i meant to those who dont have those certain programs to use... (as far as the winning goes, even though there isnt a prize, but still...) winners regonizition...

 

i cant post anyways, i dont got a scanner or digi cam or whatever anyways...

 

but i just think its kinda pointless to do something for a sketch battle on tha computer... maybe not even that, but like those crazy abstract fills... or tha effects....

 

fuck, i dont know... i know some of you can paint what you got on them digi's but i know some people cant paint alot of that shit also...

 

defy, can you paint that crazy shit you do in photoshop? i wouldnt think so, im not harpin' on you, just kinda making you an example... i know you've come along way, but shit, i dont think you can paint as crazy as you can imagine shit up on tha comp in digi land...

 

whatever, i just wanted to see what yall thought...

 

im highly enjoying the creativity and tha posts in tha threads... keep up tha good work, those who are posting..

strongly disagree... as im sure mother has told you "LIFE ISNT FARE", learn to live with it... why should we have to be limited to a certain level of artistic expression just cause some of you dont have the time, patience or money to get photoshop? and or dont have the patience, skill, or time to learn to use it and do something with it? now im not saying im some super fly web designer, but im learning photoshop, and i agree with the "anything can be done with aerosol & prismas" that is soo soo true, but some of us, just cant afford the full set of prismas, therefore we use the colors on photoshop. i will admit, some of the digitla is way out of limit as far as walls and stuff go, but look at it this way, should the alpha battle be limited to just walls & spray paint, how many of you would enter? and honestly... it's like saying " the aplha battle is off limit to letters painted on walls, cause not all of us can paint"

PURE NONSENSE! THANX AND GOODAY MATE!

Mamerro/Beardo/Zesto...well worded from all possible angles. And to add my 2 cents on a totally personal level, i always need clean resiseble letters for my Graphic design work, so i'm hitting two birds with one stone here...i thank the alphabattles for making my work more fun, and if you like my letters, thank me to!
