ok…i don’t want to sound like a whiner…but here goes:
im 19 yrs old…a programmer who works full time with -plenty- of stress to deal with and such things…and for some reason i get the feeling that every single person on elysiun that’s a newer member is about 12-15 yrs old.
my reasons are because anytime someone with an iota of talent(better than theirs) who posts something in the forums, gets nothing but slobbered over by these “WOW”-ing fanboys and gets their thread taken over by this instead of good constructive criticism.
personally this has been whats kept me from posting my work online therefore i really don’t do anything but render little test scenes with yafray wishing i could actually make something that someone would criticize instead of “WOW” over.
i know that my own talent shouldn’t be decided by what other people think. but i’ve grown up with online communities and i just find that without the respect and advice of other people who are better than me…i can’t really find a need to improve. if i can’t get someone like BDgM to say “wow, that looks good…now you need to…” then i really find it hard to create.
some may disagree with me…some may not. but i just thought i might see if -anyone- might agree…
i am aware that a thread like this has been made…but hey, this forum really doesn’t have a big flooding problem so i thought i would start a fresh one
P.S. hows that new forum at elysiun going for the more seriouse works and such ?
