    Re: Art of the Month Discussion

    I suggest taking a picture of it when its halfway done, and when its completely done. Iunno much about GFX, but it is probably easy to photoshop your signature in lol

    Some members use artworks they did long time ago, that won't work.
    A signature with their name/username/nickname is a good suggestion. Just as long as they always use the same sig at their works cause I imagine there always be the dude who says "Hurrr durrr, yeah my real name is Pablo Picasso".
    Editing a signature in a drawing is not impossible but it's too much trouble, plus you can still detect if it's ripped.

    Re: Art of the Month Discussion

    Adding Username and date both should solve it I guess.

    I think people should rather before entering PM the host progress photos of their art, or have a small piece of paper next to the art that says NB because their usernames can easily be photoshopped onto the art.

    Re: Art of the Month Discussion

    What was discussed before is not the main problem ...
    Ripped art can be detected in some ways ...
    I think the main problem is with the votes ...
    People skype their friends or create alternates to vote for themselves, even if their work isn't worth it ...
    This means that the best artworks are not being "considered" at all ...
    If a way is found to stop this too, then i guess it can really be called a contest

    Doubt them. Question them,

    No it's rrally easy to tell if a user photoshops hi/her name onto the artwork. I'm sure the regular guys would notice or they may have a program that can detect something like that.

    are two different things. Although, they are close. I must admit.. In any case, I have shorten your story if that was basically what you said. ^^

    I'm stopping you right there. In your first sentence... And I ask Mods to listen while I'm at this: Lets live up to the title of the contest!: "ART OF THE MONTH! [July]"

    Emphasizing on the bold.
    I'm new to this contest but I've been following this for a while. I like everything so far, great art work, except the many cheating. So hear me out: when I see and read "art of the month" I think of an art (<- obvious) made within the very month. I think of someone who took the effort and time like a bunch of other contesters who made and thought of their art of this month's contest.

    Lets tell our fellow members that from now on out everyone has to write his/her username on top of below his/her art and with the date of the month in which the contest had fallen. Furthermore I suggest we should have a theme. >.>

    I like themes. It's easier to vote too that way. Instead of all different together.. A theme like "Summer" would inspire real artists on NB.

    Good luck to all. ^^

    I said:

    rip a small piece of paper from a notebook or somewhere and write "NB" on it, and then place it at a corner then scan the drawing.
    The reason for ripping a piece of paper off something, and doing it in the way I said is so that people don't ruin their art work by writing the NB logo on it if they do not wish to have it on there. I did not only say taking a picture I said

    It should probably be anonymous like many of the other contests. It is also ashame that we usually only get 33 or so people voting.

    Re: Art of the Month Discussion

    out of curiosity; why does it take like so long for the poll thread to be up? wouldnt it be better if the poll thread was up, right after the submission thread was closed, so theres more time where people could vote for it?

    I don't know if this is done but I suggest for special occasions such as Christmas ect we have themes for the drawings submitted if you get what I mean. Is it a good idea?
