Aint no thang but a chicken wang... The only problem is simply saying "This poster sucks" and leaving no constructive critisism. This is his first poster on GP. Maybe this will be his first and last bad poster. Seripop had one "bad poster" too..Then she followed up with 80 er so more.. Its no big deal.
Some people like bad posters. Its all good. :lol:
i was all kinds of wasted when i made that last remark and i apologize chloe and everyone else.
i still think this guy didnt deserve the shit-slingin, but then i went and did just that to other people.
i = fool.

Gigposters.com is not grade school. People are mean.
This is why this place is interesting. Assholes are interesting.
End Public Service Announcement.
I agree XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. That's why I got out of it.
This stupid argument has been relived too many times already.
Although, there more positive ways of making a point than the route XXXXXXXX took, which he is not obligated to do.
He does'nt have to have a reason to not like it. Thats stupid. He said he doesn't like this poster. Not the end of the world. Certainly doesnt make him a jerk.
I know Shaun. Cool guy who's really just starting out. These Orpheum gigs line up fast and the poster artists aren't paid so Shaun probably had to just kick this out.
Some of you folks seem to have a serious hard-on for Florida. We're here we're queer. Get over it.
this completely destroys my and most people's first poster.
you guys are all assholes for talkin so much shit.
let's see the first thing you drew or designed chloe! oh wait...it probably would look the same as your last poster.
fisher price...my first drawering...by seripop.
look mom - it's a.......um.......well....it's brilliant!
you wouldnt understand!
this is this guys first posted poster. fuck off you bullies. don't discourage him.
there are a ton of poster cliches out there and i intend to eventually use them all. next up: clip art birds or devil girls. phone in your vote.
Hmmm. I find our judgments on what's "cliche" to be a little troubling. To us, yeah--at this point we've seen 24082 posters from around the world, and judge what a "cliche" is from that pool. But Mr. Drees here may have never seen such a thing before, ever, having his nose in Tampa since time began.
Simply, I think the possibility of him (or anyone) getting to the Mr. Gun Head independently of anything on Gigposters.com is something that shouldn't be overlooked. It may not be a cliche where it counts--in Tampa. Mind you, I could be very, very wrong, and have seen even a direct vectorizations of shit on here recently.
it was my fault, someone made unprovoked comments about psych posters.. as though u just say to urself, right today im going to have something symetrical and some wavy lines and yea, thats my poster. anyone can manipulate photos and kern lettering, to different degrees, and everyones got their unique skill and judgement..but when u approach the poster with more spontaneous drawing and less planning, it builds as u go..and if u dont like the symetrical ones u obviously havent been looking at em for long enough
"why should i spend time on a crit when the "designer" obviously spent no time on concept/excution?"
Why spend the time tossing a thoughtless remark someone's work. If you don't like it leave it alone. Like Mike said, everyone has to start somewhere. You could have said "your text needs work" or "try hand lettering". Instead this person gets "this is fucking HORRID" from queen canuck.
Is it me or do really shitty unprovoked comments come from Chloe these days?
well hopefuly they will learn to think outside the box and try some imagery that's a bit less cliche
we DO all have stinkers
fuck i have some TERRIBLE crap in my portfolio
it's just this type of imagery is EVERYWHERE lately and i'm getting VERY tired of it.
the obvious pun kinda turns me off too.
maybe i was overly harsh.
that. that right there works fine. or maybe, the imagery is weak and obvious, maybe try something less blatant or the execution is weak..anything.
it's pretty obvious to me this peron is at least tying to make something good.
i like being a jackass as much as everyone else does, but sometimes it just gets old wehn you can forsee the same arguments, tensions that could build up around here. you know?
now, you can all tell me to fuck off. i'm gonna go home and draw.
"why should i spend time on a crit when the "designer" obviously spent no time on concept/excution? "
Your assuming too much maybe? Isnt it possible that this IS this person best effort? We all started somewhere. Even if it sint a first try it could possibly just be that it is a stinker? WE ALL put out some stinkers.
Just a though.
I dont think this is horrid at all. Not really my style, but I have seen far worse.
oh i don't know seripop perhaps the dude is learning which is good and positive input helps. he only has the one poster so i suspect he or she is new at this
i would ditch the text, the image is OK but the text is gereat
my prediction: this dude will come on the ite, hoping to see something positive said about this, something constructive..instead he'll read the below, probably get defensive and we'll get an "entertaining" thread...
ok: i think whoever made this poster should go to the library and look up some type books. whoever makes the symmetrical psychedelic hippy-trippy ones should, i dont know, look at some posters made in the current century. there's my 2 cents.
would it kill you to go beyond twee proclamations like "HORRID" and "shitty"?
