The confidence of a beginner is naively refreshing, yet the challenges he/she faces is so apparent to those helping him/her across the upcoming hurdles. We are all newbies to something everyday, whether it be in our chosen field, or in something else, cooking, a new relationship, owning a pet, refinishing furniture, changing a light fixture…
Ugghh that’s terrible!
And terribly funny!
I know it won’t rate on the “aesthetic quality” scale, but it’s all about concept for this intro piece.
This should be an interesting one to see develop :)
that’s great. looks like it was carefully planned to be as painful to view as possible.
wow…that’s a lot of fonts. i think you captured the concept awright, ilustren. hats off to you ;) btw, who’s sargent pepper?
Sergeant Pepper is an escort to her Royal Highness, Elizabeth II. I used him to exaggerate a novice’s lack of research into a “tin-soldier for xmas” image.
I think you should have covered this img with a dirty brush…
Hey man, don’t be knocking dirty brushes!
This is still better than some of the worst images on this site (Even before with the self-mockery).
OMG Ilustren, do you have an interwebz0r webpage!? I bet you’ve got dancing babies!
now I feel like a novice!
What’s a interwebz0r page?
No, no dancing babies, back in 1996 I had a screensaver with
kraftdinner® noodles doing the macarena…tackEE!
Dancing babies are lame. Dancing jeebus on the other hand… priceless.
Sometimes I miss the old school web, when and were new and exciting. Then I find pockets of it everywhere.
there is always a nice scary feeling that comes from being new
I reallly like your image, but I cant read any of the text! When the text color is the same color as the drop shadow, the whole thing becomes a blob.
… Or was this intentional? Is this a subtle irony of novice mistakes?
ah yes…the classic grass and sky. i’m looking forward to a tribute to the brush tool. autumn leaves ROCK!!!!
Nice. I wish I was as good as you guys.
