Welcome To The Creation Gallery

There's really not very much that needs to be said as far as what goes or not in here, but we have had one or two problems in the past, so we may as well just knock these couple of things out.

- No nudity or sexually explicit material. This is forbidden in the rest of the forum too, but perhaps it's necessary to re-iterate it when people will be posting their work.

- Whether or not you like someone's art or other creation is not grounds to insult or bash them. If you have constructive criticism, that is fine. But insulting people because you think they may not have done something the way you would have done it will not be tolerated.

Having said these couple of things, we really love seeing your art. We've had some very impressive works shown on the Town before and many people who come here have great talent. So use this forum to it's fullest extent.

No nudity?! But ever since Stephanie left me, creation gallery pornography is all I've had left in my life. AND YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME, TOO? *cries*

I feel you're pain man! I feel you pain!

but seriousally..
posting poems, lyrics, midis and such are still allowed correct?

I don't know if an outright ban on nudity is necessary. I think it would be more appropriate to disallow obscene images as many artists throughout history have drawn, painted or sculpted naked people - think the Statue of David or the Venus De Milo, even the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. If the home of the Catholic church thinks it's acceptable then I think we can too Sticking Out Tongue

Of course, there may be people on the forum whom do not want to see naked images - a warning in the topic title would be appropriate.

Just a thought, I'll leave it with you.

As long as there are minors on the forum, nudity of any sort will not be allowed. There was a situation on the original iPB in which there was nude CG art, but that was then, this is now.

We don't want to run the risk of:

A) Someone getting in trouble at home because of it.
B) Someone getting in trouble at school because of it.
C) Getting our space pulled by whahay.net. I don't know what their regulations are on nudity and until we do, or the two problems above are solved (by more than a NSFW tag) then it will most likely not be allowed.

The way I see it.

Very well, you make some points I hadn't considered. I guess it is a big difference between posting a picture of the sistine chapel and some nude anime Laugh (I'm sure I'd get away with posting the sistine chapel ceiling though Wink)

I love your avatar, Maxy. I love how you compared the whole Iraq/Bush issue to racial supremacy/genocide. It shows the utmost respect to the dead. Great job.

I'm going to make some small edits on the grounds of the 'nude' ban. In many cases nudity in art isn't really a bad thing. I'm going to say that tasteful non-provokative nudity is fine. Understand though, that us moderators will be the final judge of what is tasteful and what is it.

I think it also needs to be stated that if you decide to include tasteful nudity that you state there is nudity in your thread title.

Bring it to debates, this is sort of a rules thread. Your eyes must be better than mine anyway since I can't really see any references to Bush or Iraq specifically in that avatar. Sticking Out Tongue A comparison to Nazis doesn't neccessarily have anything to do with that war or those who died in it, but may be a commentary on civil rights and extreme right-wing sentiments. It may be inappropriate but I think it's undertaken with some humor and less of an offensive intention than you ascribe to it... probably?

As for nudes, a case-by-case thing makes most sense. No need to go overboard with generalized rules.

Anyway. I may end up writing something for here, since so far we don't have much other than the artwork.

You're absolutely right. There's no reason for me to have thought that way at all. My mistake. Smile

Note to self: Never comment on something that can be fashionably "justified".

Oh I'm sure he didn't mean to be offensive. Thanks for enlightening me.

Sorry about the misunderstanding. I'll go behave now. Wink

I am not justifying anything and I am certainly not being "fashionable." Relating Nazi Germany and America is clearly ridiculous, and offensive if undertaken seriously. Even a joke, if comparing their genocides to our Iraqi war, would be very offensive. I simply don't think that is the case here; to me it's a harsh insult about civil liberties and totalitarianistic tendencies. You obviously interpret that block of pixels differently. That is the extent in the difference of our opinions as far as I can tell, and that small a difference certainly doesn't justify you being all sarcastic and condescending.

OH LET ME ADD

a lot of the criticism on this board is unjustified and stupid. (...)

Pointing out what you think is well done in a piece of art is just as important as pointing out what you don't think is well done. This way the artist knows what they did right, as well as what can be improved upon. So yeah, that step is important.


On hiatus. Blame holloway.

I can draw nudes rather well... but because I can, I don't. Knowing I can is fine with me. If I ever do any work including a bit of nudity, I'm sure it would be tasteful.

I can also draw in the nude...

3 year old thread bumping. Lovely

This isn't for game making resources- those go in the resources section! This is for writing, drawing, music etc which isn't intended for game making (we do allow stuff like concept art so long as it justifies being classed as art separate from the game).

I thought it was fine as long as it was for personal use, seeing as pixel art is actually a form of art. and public resources went to resources section?

Its always been a bit hazy. Look at it- is it a resource for your game that you want feedback on from an RM point of view? Put it in resources. If not, put it in here, but I will kick it back to resources if it isn't at an artistic level.
