@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Oh wow, I really love that banner of Resnov. He was by far my favorite character in CoD5, next to Polonsky.

Really? Because I felt it was lacking, for some reason...I really wanted to do a banner like that. The text is a refrence to CoD Finest Hour, where the first level, set in Stalingrad, the Commisar keeps yelling "NOT ONE STEP BACK"

Really epic.

That's awesome, now get to work or die.

Just kidding, but anyway, I think they are all pretty cool and pretty good, I would say how to improve but I don't look at GFX galleries too often so I wouldn't know. :\

Hmm, don't take this the wrong way, but have you ever thought of trying some tutorials to learn new techniques? Your designs are sound in theory, but if you knew how to manipulate the tools you were using (if you knew more ways to do things) I think they would turn out a -lot- better.

I could link you to a few great ones if you want, none take much time.

I think the text might be a bit better in gold, considering I can barely read it, and I'm pretty good at picking out subtle things. Just something to test out.

I do use tutorials occasionally, whenever I see a tutorial that is based around an effect I want to master. I havent looked at any tuts in a while, however. I might go and check some out sometime soon.

@Bblues: I see. I'll be sure to keep that in mind. I want some fonts though...but I cant find any places specifically for GFXing Fonts...if there is such a place.

Lol, we like Shu just the way he is.

Although, if you do have one on hand, it wouldn't be a bad idea to give it to me....

I really like your work. It's very unique to ones i'm used to seeing. You seem to use a lot of blurring in it and it makes them look really good. I think if you added some C4Ds into some new signatures and tried it out, that would be a cool new addition to your good technique.(I didn't see any of these but if there was let me know). I really like the smudging and lighting in the last signature myself. Very cool stuff Shu! Keep up the awesome GFXin smile.gif
