Stuff!
Top Ten Favorite Tiles (Note, none of these are mine.) :

10. One of my favorite songs.

9. A shame no one tried to continue the theme!

8. That little turtle's rear end just makes my day.

7. Not just this one tile, the tiles above and below create one of my favorite scenes.

6. I'll give you three guesses as to why I like this one.

5. Kicks some serious butt. And I like dragons. And I like blue.

4. I couldn't pick. I like the whole quilt.

3.
Dune worm!

2. Just great.

1. The colors, the desert, the sunset, the rock arch... everything!

Keep up the good work
Gecky I just wanted to say I love your artwork. All my life I wish I could draw like you. I have been an admirer of fantasy art for a long time and you are without a doubt one of the best at it I've seen.

I also really enjoyed your tutorial on how to do a starfield and following your directions I was easily able to create the image and I really learnt a lot from doing it. Please can we have more.

Take care
Bernard
Hello Gecko
I did my first tile yesterday !!!
Take care,
Bernard

Apology!
Hey.. A couple days ago, my friend was over, he's all interested in the tile making thing here at ice.org, but he's never made any tiles or anything. Anyway, I was telling him about how you had given me a 2 on one of my tiles just because of a silly Mario Cloud. I left for a bit to clean up my room and stuff, and left him on the computer to look at tiles.
Well, I guess he thought that he'd do a service to me and give nearly every tile of yours a vote of 0, while I was gone :( Of course he never told me until today.
Anyways, I'm really sorry. I'll go through your tiles and give them what I honestly think they should receive.
Sorry again! (and im not mad about the score on that one mario cloud tile :)

-Fydo
Fydo
Re: Apology!
Okay..

After my friends damage: Your score's about 150
After I went through and fixed the damage: Your score's about 185

:)

Sorry again about everything!
(and I noticed you made a tile with a Mario cloud in it.. tee hee!)

-Fydo
gecky
Re: Apology!
Oooh... thanks, Fydo. You have solved a mystery that has puzzled me for two days straight... :)
gecky
Hmmm
Hey, I haven't been tiling lately, a little too many other things going on at the moment. College, mostly. I'll have to go on another tiling spree soon to make up for all the lost days. :) And draw a new picture to put in the iCE Pack next month, too.. *sigh* Couldn't quite make it this one.

Re: Hmmm
You have too many 5-rated tiles....how about sharing the wealth?
gecky
Re: Re: Hmmm
You can have that ugly bird foot one. :)
gecky
Hmm...
It's not that the tablet is big. It's that I'm really small, see? *look of sardonic incredulity*
Primal_r
Re: Hmm...
oh. is that an A6 tablet?! =)
gecky
Re: Re: Hmm...
9"x12" is that A6? I don't know what A6 means for some reason. I know it's a size, but I don't know what size it is.
Primal_r
Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
A regular paper is A4. Half of that is A5. Half of that is A6.
gecky
Re: Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
Oh. In that case.. it's half of A6. ;)
jito
Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
A6 = 1/4 size of A4
(big like a baby hand)
jito
Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
so A3 is 2X A4( A4=8,264 inch x 11,694 inch )
A2 is 2x A3
A1 is 2x A2
and A0 is 2xA1

A5 = 1/2 A4
A6= 1/2 A5
BlackTerror
Re: Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
It's my understanding that for every change in A, the length and width alternates being doubled/halved. In that case, the area doubles/halves every number, but each side length doubles/halves only every other number. So if A4 is 8.25x11.5, A3 would be 16.5x11.5, A2 16.5x23, A1 33x23, and A5 8.25x5.75.
jito
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
no
A4=8,264 inch x 11,694 inch
a3=16.528 X 23.388 (a4 x2)
A2=33.056 X 46.776 (a3x2)
A1=66.112 X 86.552 (a2x2)
A0=132.224 X 173.104 (a1x2)

A5=4.132 X 5.847 (a4/2)
A6=2.156 X 2.9235 (a5/2)

jito
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
no why?
this shows exactly what i said with aproximative measurement
beside something wich is really wrong in the schematic
is that an A4
is always shown horizontaly (width).
BlackTerror
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
No, to decrease paper size, say from A4 to A5, you halve the length of the longer side. You listed it as halving the lengths of both sides, which will actually decrease the paper by two sizes, from A4 to A6.
jito
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Hmm...
yes that's it
but if you know how it works
you will explain as the following a3= 2x a4
that was my error
was thinking if you yet had an a4 in your hands.

hello..
feel realy bad about that shitty green tile (not so very green) .. heh. i hate when you feel like you are screwing up someone elses artwork. anyway. i actualy made it a litle bit more green and different, but still the same blending to the tiles above and under it. . i don't know, it's kind of cheating. but I e-mail it to you.. and if you think it's any inprovement. (i think it is) .. then you might want to replace it. thanks anyway. bye :)
BluJeann
Oozing
I was reading some of your conversations with others, and looking at your art work, you are really a divine gal. Your the kind who's inner beauty should be oozzing out all over the earth. I do wish you great things in life, you have a lot to contribute.
gecky
Re: Oozing
Thanks, I think. :) I've never been described as "oozing" before. ;)

tablets versus meeces
hi gecky,
what brand or type of tablet do you use/recommend??
thanks in advance for the info.
gecky
Re: tablets versus meeces
Wacom. Most everyone uses this brand. I should get a commission for recommending it to so many people. ;) Beginners usually go with the Graphire II 4x5. They've got a lot of information on the site about which is the right tablet for you, so you should be able to find yourself around pretty easily. :)
raganaga
Re: Re: tablets versus meeces
okay thanks.
i'll mention your commission to them when i purchase 8^)

This is so utterly depressing
well some people are born with a godgiven talent. Others get by with a lot of persistance. You're just too good.
(sarcastically)Well, at least I'm better with numbers and stuff.--that is I HOPE I am. (desparately trying to salvage what's left of my ego, and failing)

Keep tiling. You're an asset to the tiling community, you showoff.(just kidding)

Thanks for the advice a while back...
gecky
Re: This is so utterly depressing
Yeah. Things like Fibonacci scare me.

Just kidding. I just woke up and am eating the nastiest cereal ever, after crashing last night from working 9 hours straight on this concert poster. (Note: There is no hyperbole in my last statement)

PS: Never buy wal mart brand frosted wheat.

Re: Hello Gecky!
Looks good, you should probably try to put something in the background though.
maxetormer
Re: Re: Hello Gecky!
Ok i will make a vesion with a background so i will have two one that migth
work as a logo more simbolic, and one that look like a normal painting, i belive that is a good idea to make a background for my image, i will make one
so that you can judge it,

"This user has done 0 tiles representing 0 hours of work (0 weeks)"

Re: error
I don't know, sky, maybe they fixed it.. now it says 'This user has done 175 tiles representing 341 hours of work (2 weeks)' for me.

Wow! Gas13! Cool! I'm so ... WOW! I mean, wow man, Gas13!!!
Greetz to you, you're the graetest one of us all!

Re: Hi, gecko!
I'm afraid you may have mistaken me for someone else, I don't really know who you are. Or, at least, I don't think I know who you are. :)
skyfarmer
Re: Re: Hi, gecko!
he hasn't. I know Gas, and well, you could expect things much worse than that ;))
gecky
Re: Re: Re: Hi, gecko!
I don't understand.

Gecko
How do you feel with all these sayings about you?..
Looks like any moron passing by just types Gecky whatever the sentence is :)
gecky
Re: Gecko
probably you. you seem to be the only one taking notice.
skyfarmer
Re: Re: Gecko
Well, it's pretty much like me (i have problems, YEAH, I DO), but well, no :)
is discussing the Gecky Sayings Conspiracy tabooed?.. That would explain it all!
gecky
Re: Re: Re: Gecko
No, you randomly emailing me and posting on my user pages out of nowhere when I have absolutely no idea who you are is tabooed. Mostly I just want you to get the heck away from me, which I thought I had accomplished earlier, but now you're back. Go make some real friends or something and stop pestering me.
skyfarmer
Re: Re: Re: Re: Gecko
Sad to see you react like that... Looks like you take it all serious.
A way of inadequate reaction caused by inadequate people, I guess.
Actually, the purpose of this place is creativity, and I think I've just created something :))__ _ _

randomly emailing : heh :)
out of nowhere : why? you may have seen me before
but now you're back : does the whole thing really mean this lot to you?
make friends : impossible, look at me and my psycho attitude :)
stop pestering me : done

One question remains though: why is it so important?

Have you ever drawn less than a five? I live in the hope that someday I'll be worthy of a gold coin from your rich treasury. You've become the dominatrix of the bitmap and I'd swear off of my smudge tool for you...XXX

Re: Judy...
Yep, I've drawn plenty of crappy tiles. I'm trying to save up on the coins though, when they first came out I gave them all away to oldbies. :)

heinzon
Re: Re: dudette
