    After about 5 years of having the same format of this competition, we're finally revamping it all

    Welcome to
    Art of The Week

    Here everything is considered as art, no matter the medium.
    You like painting? Posing in Gmod/SFM? Or maybe you're a photographer?

    Everyone is welcome to improve here.
    Few simple rules:
    • One submission per week (week starts at Monday and ends a week after, so the next Monday)
    • No NSFW materials, just use your brain and don't post anything fucked up
    • Discussion is welcome and encouraged, be that commenting on other's work, or just posing some WIPs (just put whatever image isn't a submission in a spoiler). However, spamming the thread with an unrelated discussion will be met with a heavy no-no
    • Whatever the curators say is final, as long as they aren't dicks about it
    The curators (or previously "judges") are as following:

    @lemon
    @MaXenzie
    @RGB
    @Danny

    Hit them up if you need any personal help. It's what we're here for anyway.

    Each week one, or more of us will make a post quoting all of your artworks that have been sent here,
    each one with some sort of commentary and criticism.
    Also, there's always someone who's the best, although the only reward for those are few kind words.

    oh snap a new thread. i haven't been around much but I found some new desire for sfm posing, so I made a map for sfm since most of the maps don't fit what I'm going for and made this.

    bad move mate

    if no one can see your image they cant critique it
    compression doesnt even remove any quality if its done with a good program, like photoshop's png compression

    then they should just fuck off because unless you can clearly see compression issues you should give less of a fuck. the nicest thing i can say is that they're a bunch of retarded nitpickers that want to find fault only to say it's "feedback" theres virtually no difference between a well done jpg and a png other than former being much faster at loading than the latter
