My New Years Eve...

Sitting at home, working on shading...my life is boring....



Originally, this was a different background/clothing theme type graphic, but I changed it to the "Fake New Years Party Theme. She's a girl at home, celebrating by herself...depressing:/

Still, I made everything besides the rope, by myself. I'd like to thank my sister for giving me the idea for the pose! She was hanging on a rope today in the park and it was pretty genius...

I'm really trying to change my style of skin shading so I'm not classed under amateurs anymore. I'm tired of being referred to as lower level, just because of my different style. I get it if you think you're better than me, but everyone is different, so everyone has a different style. I don't want to make graphics like someone, I want to make them how I like to make them and  it kinda irks me how people can go around dissing other designers because of their style. 

So if you're judging a graphic, don't judge based on other people's graphic. Judge base on how you view see everything. Is the concept clear, can you tell the shirt apart from the pants or is it a dress. Is the shading accurate for the lighting in the scene. I recommend looking at past designers and just exploring their graphic styles. Back in 2009-2010, there were so many different styles of graphics.
Graphics designers, if you aren't comfortable with your style of making graphics, change that and try something new. There are so many ways to make a graphic...

Thanks for reading my rant! 
Please comment if you've changed your graphic style or if you know someone who has:]
