Just say no to black
Level 4
Hey everybody!
i voted to -1 to be honest. Why? First: There are some bad mistakes. The Water ist falling "trough" the pipe at the end. The whole Picture looks very Cartoony. Hmm, i would change the pipes, so that they look like real Metal. And for the earth with gras...use textures of real earth and gras for it, and shade it, to give it a little 3D-look. The Water looks ok. And for the Background, maybe something like a landscape strongly blurred (focus). Or a lot more of pipes. Or more "gras and earth" stuff. ;) Sorry, my english sucks...
Re: Well...hmm
I understand what you're getting at, however a -1? Seems a little harsh. I didn't really have too much choice as to the look of the pipes, I just took what was given to me. The comments are appreciated, however.
And to address the comment above this, I did try my best to blend the black out.

Or maybe I'm just justifying really a really bad tile? Who knows.
Re: Re: Well...hmm
Yeah, sorry, I wasn't very clear. What I meant was that this was a good example of just saying no to black. I wasn't trying to criticise. It really is a good tile, keep up churning out quality tiles and you'll be working on invites in no time.
Re: Well...hmm
However, this is a newbie quilt, and therefore I don't think it should be graded so strictly. A negative vote means you feel that the tile does injustice to the quilt, which I think is untrue. It's true that it looks "cartoony", but I don't think that's necessarily negative. It's not everyone's goal to achieve a realistic image.

Antay has a funny beard. You guys should all ask him to show it to you.
Re: Re: Re: Well...hmm
You know you love it :)
Re: Re: Re: Re: Well...hmm
perhaps you could work it into a tile?
or maybe an entire themed quilt. "what's caught in antaydos' beard."
i would, of course, get an invite because it's my idea... i promise no tiles like this one would show up.
