stop the media influence of your life…don´t you feel like a slave ? lokk behind the wall and find the answer. and ask yourself, why you going crazy - and also the people around you..and nobody cares about…especially in germany, these days ! …so gon on an revolt against da media - and starting to dance..

Lincoln

nice one c.ram. you’re one-offs are good too. you and taco seem to have something similiar going on.

creighton

i’m excited about this one. c.ram, i’m floored by this one. the iconic figures in the background are great. i think that the theme for this one will spur some great imagery, especially with taco.

i hope you guys push this one far. welcome c.ram.

tacosaurus

ooohhh nice… about to start crackin’ at this one…

tacosaurus

Everybody knows who is in control… Do you trust them? Trust the Media?

I would actually like to see the media revolt…

thought control went nicely with his previous text… no more* media control look behind* media control

all controls are revolting.

tacosaurus

…I kinda thought I was in a rut.

Foxsake

Nice reply Tacos,

the placement of the word control is absolutely spot on. the first logue in the background could be a bit lighter just to bring out the illustration.

Excellent theme, some RATM graphics could work well here.

bharper

Great one taco.

tacosaurus

I kinda wish it would have turned out a little darker, now that I take a twenty-fifth look at it…

bharper

darker in color or in content or in both?

tacosaurus

mostly color… Maybe more cryptic Iconography

tacosaurus

I dunno, maybe I like it better the way it is. Just made it darker and it doesn’t look right.

I was going for a faded look in the first place. like a fog or cloud of smoke over the image.

It actually looks best if you stand back a few feet.

cram

ok..let´s dance.. control center ! nice taco….you create the next step …but i have to bring back more contast in the theme.. sorry taco..but the last image was to soft..good content…but a little bit to soft..no sephir style —more ruffness on the theme !! now “we recruit all their mediaicons to force them down”.

…. still searching more mediarebells.. also over dl.03 !

over and out ++ ++c.ram

I really like the colors in image number 4.

The balance and depth work out well too… though I might have taken out that thin vertical line at the top.

tacosaurus

Old Classics Illustrated: THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. circa 1955… OG media hype.

tacosaurus

I guess I am playing devil’s advocate in this one… Just can’t emphasize how much the media is influenced. The global elite have thier hand in everything…

Tacosaurus Wrex…

bharper

i know the font choice for “communication failure” was intentional, but i still dont like it too much.

tacosaurus

well I don’t like the media too much either…

tacosaurus

funny thing is…

I don’t expect any of you to see where I am coming from…

RevDrLuv

An even funnier thing is…

We don’t expect you to see where you’re coming from…

tacosaurus

what the fuck is that supposed to mean Rev?

I listen to a shit-ton of CoastToCoast Totally into all that conspiracy shit. I don’t expect any of you are into it too.

tacosaurus

I kinda found that last comment offensive Rev… Are you saying that I don’t know what I am doing?

bharper

Taco, im just sayiing your font is whack. the rest is cool.

RevDrLuv

The funny thing is…

I didn’t expect you to see where that comment was coming from.

tacosaurus

the font is whack, I TOTALLY AGREE… It isn’t even a font, it is some strange font that doesn’t really exist that just default renders like that. I have no clue where it came from and my computer doesn’t recognize it. It is somewhere in my system folder, but I can’t find it. It isn’t properly named or it is hidden. I actually think it is a ghost font that haunts me. I think pixel fonts are kinda played out now, but somehow I thought adding COMMUNICATION FAILURE! in some font that was the resultant of several communication errors, would actually make for an interesting sidenote to the piece.

The mostest funniest thing is…

I don’t expect to know where your comment is coming from.

tacosaurus

I also hope that the Media destroys all of your brains… Well not really, but that would be kinda’ cool in a sense.

tacosaurus

And while we are at it…

Anybody willing to step forward and fire the critique gun? Please feel free to riddle all four of these to death with your fancy little bulletholes. I’m feeling frisky and could use some fresh beef. In need of a good rantalization and shit. Please feel free to tear our work a new asshole in the hopes of somehow bettering your own work by seeing our failures.

I want to see at least 50 comments on this thread by tomorrow morning, or I am gonna pull the plug on my Designologue career. I miss the old days where I was a noob and nobody wanted to Designologue with me. I remember when everyone hated me and then all of a sudden everyone loved me and then all of another sudden everyone hated me again until they loved me some more. I miss talking shit while I am drunk on an internet board. I have been terrorizing YayHooray, but I already have like 53 points on there and I have full admin, and it is just boring now. Because I can do really mean things to people and they don’t know who did it. And I don’t want to play some generic photoshop tennis shit on that site. The talent level is like picking off freshmen in drawing 101. So yeah. I am calling all the OG designologuers out. Fuck this shit, they are all like, GIVE ME VERSION 4 OR GIVE ME DEATH, INMAN.

blah… just finished beer, want to smoke a cigarette. end of rant.

tacosaurus wrex.

RevDrLuv

The funny thing is…

tacosaurus

that you have nothing funny to say?

tacosaurus

because I have a lot to say…

Lincoln

I’ll say

tacosaurus

Lincolns coming verbose…

inman

>: X

tacosaurus

you aint saying nothing either inman?

tacosaurus

Did everyone all of a sudden get on AIM and conspire against me again?

Lincoln

(shh…he knows)

Lincoln

aight, I’ll give you some critisicm. you whine too much. but your pictures are neat so we at BONHAU (Brotherhood of Nick-Hatin’ AIM Users) put up with it.

These all have good style and a really nice volley progression with each image. 4th’s my favorite. I don’t really mind the text. love that you used the war of the worlds cover (has anyone seen the new iRobot trailer?…goddamn it will smith)

my only real thing is I’d like to see some specifics maybe. so, the media’s a bunch of liars. what are they lying about. why?

John Stossel (one of the only journalists I trust) just put out a book called ‘Give me a Break’ about scam artists. he talks about why local news will pick stories that scare and hype over others that are more real and newsworthy.

inman

I’m failing to communicate. It’s a no effort pun.

tacosaurus

I wasn’t whining, just blabbing, words, they come out sometimes.

bharper

i wish you had given the red lines a little transparency.. give it that faded look… there is a bit of a clash between the dirtyness of various layers..

tacosaurus

ok, that’s a start…

cram

what is going on here..no beef.! i think the theme brings some contrast also in the comments.. taco i´m on your side… i´ve found the new theme for us.. tagging against s´da hater…intrested in..(for the good old days !) so go on.. and here my next image… your robots remind me to the communication network these days,…also..the robots in your last image are just fakes of the mediatemple in d.c. ….they wanted to keep the peoplen on drugs….

??????????c.ram

cram

the robots from the image 4 are no real.. they just a imagin´ of your mediatransformed brain.. to much influence by futurestyles you are terrorized with fake information, that you now still believe all their stories….and their lies..

…rock on the revolt !

the media wants you to be on drugs.

the media wants you to buy product.

the media is everything you desire.

cram

c.ram….

Beerad

wish you would of stayed with the style that was happening. Image 1 is not coming up for me… wonder if its my computer.

Wait! There we Go!

cram

beerad..what da fuck you talking about !!!! sorry—c.ram

inman

shit shit fuck shit.

c.ram, get the base expletives out of your system now because this street trash broken english is getting old. Broken English I can understand and respect the effort but your curse word to content ratio is hovering around 50%. Chill.

Beerad

images 1, 3, and 4 all had great white backgrounds. THen you toss images 5 in there that is way to black. Other images had a clean cut look.. the last image I don’ know just not working for me.

cram

you´re right beerad..the last image ….i dont know….quick s+++…..

cram

taco ! where are you ? ……still waiting

tacosaurus

I have been busy, just started my new job and shit, and I am doing a whole bunch of art shit for a movie. Sorry I dropped off so quick.

enorath

I love this DSNLG. Not due to quality, but due to the presence of Steve Mcqueen.

Cool.

That is all.

cJw

I dig this as well, but I’m getting a distinct good cop/bad cop vibe from it…

that and, of course, I’d love to see it finish. =)

Hold the train; does that say ‘mAssagebox’?! Kinda changes things a little…
