    Effective use of this section

    How to effectively use the "Showroom"


    This section's primary purpose is to enable one to learn from their mistakes. People post their work and learn from what they did wrong. This means that people need to point out things that may not look good in their piece or things that should be changed, etc. The most effective way of doing this is in a kind and respectful manner. Assume that this person has worked on their piece for a while and is happy with their outcome. Don't come into the thread flaming the person saying they suck.

    You should only be posting pieces you created in this section and comments should consist of conversation related to the piece.

    I strongly consider looking over the art work a few times before posting and explaining what you feel is wrong with the piece or what you feel could make it look better. Simply reading the comments and restating what they say is really not helping anything other than your post count. Also quoting someone and just saying I was going to say that or QFT, etc is not acceptable.


    Examples of bad Cnc:

    text sucks imo, all u did was erase some of the stock but nice try

    text ruins them all again

    again text is crap and imo the bg is too

    Those 3 examples are NOT cnc all that is is telling the person how much it sucks

    When u give cnc dont tell the person why it sucks
    tell them how to make it better

    Some things you may want to consider before you give feedback on the signature:

    - How is the lighting if any? Is the lighting minimal? Is there a light source but no light on the render? Or vice-versa.


    - Is there depth to the work? Or was the concept just ignored? What could add more depth?

    - How is the flow? Did the artist just slap the render and other pieces together with no certain direction of movement? Or did they think it through and add flow to the work?

    - Is the background matching with the render? Do they blend together? Or does the render/background stand out?

    - How is the brushing? If any, does it flow with the work, or feel out of place. Does it blend?

    - How is the C4D usage? Are the c4d's properly placed and blended? Do they match the flow of the work?

    -Is the text placed properly, or does it feel out of place and not part of the render? Is the font choice appropriate?

    -Do the overall colors match the portrayed mood of the work? Or are they out of the appropriate spectrum?

    - How is the usage of the various adjustment layers? Gradient maps, exposure etc. Are they used effectively or sloppily placed on with no predetermined effect desired?

    -How is the contrast? Is the work going all over the light and dark spectrum, or does it maintain a constant theme?

    -Is the work over-sharpened, blurred, or just right?

    - How is the smudging, if any? Is it overdone? Does it follow the flow of the rest of the work? Or is it just placed on for the sake of it being there?

    - Is the work aesthetically pleasing? Is it nice too look at, a work can be composed right, but because of how it formed, it becomes unattractive.

    Now let's see some good CnC!
    http://www.mpgh.net/forum/148-showro...uidelines.html

    This section is strictly for the promotion of better work, not for the demotivation of those who produce what some may say is "crap".


    To those of you posting your work here please understand that the criticism may be harsh at times but it should never be taken negatively, if it is derogatory it will be addressed.

    For the most part, its fine right now. When/if we get more people there will be more rules and things like that but right now my main focus is keeping everyone who's here here and trying to keep those few that want to be here. And also keeping SOTW running.

    Well its also a suggestion..
    Because it will be unfair to others that they are not using that kind of words then they will see it here.
    Then its also annoying to see some threads that saying blah blah blah but non-sense..
    It's better to post some CnCs only STRICTLY to this section..
    And also that kind of words can start fight

    I understand what you're saying but if you were here a month or two earlier, you would say this is definitely an improvement.
