I love mine and appreciate it so much, but I just love see new ideas and since I lost photoshop and other programs after I left school, I can't afford new ones to do it myself.
    It's not that I see a problem with your sentiment, it's that I see a problem with the "only 12 days later" part. Think of it like this:

    Someone goes to a Woodworking website and starts browsing their forums. They see that there's a thread to request free pieces to be made by talented woodworkers. Wow, cool! So they request a coffee table with a light finish for their living room. Lo and behold, a woodworker claims the request and makes a beautiful piece. Later, this person changes their decor and suddenly they need a dark finish. So they make a request of the woodworker to stain it for them to a darker color, to which he obliges. Then, not 12 days later, this person suddenly shows up on the forums requesting a new coffee table to be made because they've changed their decor yet again, this time to a super-modern theme. The old one is beautiful, and they just love it, but it clearly will not fit in. I mean, they loved using that table for those 12 days! It wasn't like it went unused. It was seen and enjoyed by all for those 12 days. But now they just need another table, because the decor needs it.

    Now, does that sound ok to you? It shouldn't. And it's basically the exact same thing as what you're doing now. Graphics designers get payed a lot of money for a reason. The fact that what we create here isn't physically tangible doesn't mean that it should hold any less value in your mind than something that is.

    And i4ni, while I understand and respect your position in supporting him, I'm disappointed that you're willing to go along with behavior like this.

    I agree with i4ni on this one, but then again I don't take either myself or my work serious enough to argue the rules of the thread.

    You should, then. Your portfolio is good enough for an entry-level professional graphics position.

    Well, thank you I suppose but I compare myself to stuff way above my league so I find my own work rather laughable.

    I'd like to clarify that I'm not supporting frequent reposts because of race or faction changes, but I'm sick and tired of the occasional hack and slash game going on between requesters and artists. I avoid this thread sometimes because it tends to be very hostile and I don't want to be a part of that, ever.

    This will be my last post on the matter as to not derail the thread.
    If you wanna talk it out via PM you're welcome to do so I just thought people should understand why I see more of an issue with YOUR behavior.

    I am not a professional graphics designer.
    I simply enjoy making things.
    If in my quest to better myself through practice I can help someone out then it's a bonus.

    I have a problem when people don't follow the rules of the thread... which was not the case here with Mersynd.
    IMO, The rules of the thread are meant to give both requesters and artists an idea of how things work around here.
    If you don't like the fact signatures only have a 7 day CD then perhaps you should bring it up with a Mod and not scold people openly, especially since they are within their right to re-request per the rules of this thread.

    Yes, sometimes it sucks when you spend hours of your time making something and then someone re-requests a week later.
    The brilliant thing is you don't have to pick up their new request or any request they post thereafter...
    but since they are techicnally respecting the rules you should do the same.

    Hi. I have been forced to change my main and I am starting to like it a lot. And I woud love to show that in a new signature.


    Visible text: my name and realm.
    Armory link/Facial screenshot: eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/xavius/Celamir/simple
    Gear set: current transmog without tabard or cloak.
    Helm visible: yes
    Your pose: either healing or in a defensive position
    General colour scheme: something holy paladinish.
    Any extras: if possible I would love to have the paladin wings from the glyph. Or something pvpish in the background. But I don't care if that's not in there since it's a small frame to work with.

    I'm not asking this to sound rude - but I just wanted to know why you feel one person is better than anyone else in this thread? Is it because she has a better attitude towards requests and seems to do more for people that might ask for tougher requests, or just her work overall?

    When I read things like this, I can't help but feel that I'm failing somewhere and like to know what I can improve.

    (Small edit: When I say failing, I do not mean that I'm in fear of failing at being the "best" because I do not see my self as such nor do I try and out-do or 1up anyone around here. Sometimes I feel that there are times this thread has issues with that, though.)

    It's not where you failed. It's where someone succeeded in my mind. It's their work appealing to me best.

    I think that everyone has personal preference toward one artist or another. However, I dont think that stating it is very polite.
