    Thumbs up [CALLING ALL GAMERS & ARTISTS]Do digital artists get enough credit?

    Hi guys , this is MkSv here
    The thing I wanted to talk about is artists. Editors , GFX staff , VFX artists , and Composers . We all know about big COD clans like FaZe and OptiCGaminG , but do we ever recognize the artists that are the pillar the clan rests on? Do the editors like baker and SLP are having enough credits?
    Are you an editor? An artist? Do you know this feeling of being bullied , rushed at , and being left-out ? I am an editor myself in a 4k subs clan , and I feel like being rushed at and partial behavior towards artists...Please pen down your thoughts if you think this is correct or if this is just a brief moment that will pass . If you are a gamer , and you think this is justified , please dont resist to put down your opinions

    Yeah, most of the time the people who do most of the work get the least credit.

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.” .”

    For gaming clans its more of the web-page designer and actual players/leaders than the artist.
    -Mostly because gaming clans can get by with pretty low amounts of "GFX" work.

    -----------------------------------------------------
    Artist for internet stuff don't get enough credit......is kind of false. It's that there art isn't anything but one source among millions and millions of sources.
    The artist is normally cited or known, so they get "credit", though money terms.....well that's just what happens when you put something up on the internet.

    How so?

    I see the artist given credit for their work on almost every occasion(unless someone rips it).


    What credit should they be given?

    You are asking too much for what is too little of a contribution.


    Clan art is rather low on the GFX radar, most people can do it, and to be honest it's just there as a "Logo".(and yes most clans do post who made the logo when it comes out.)

    Making an "artist signature" on the clan logo isn't something you should do either. It detracts from the clan nature.


    Money? Pfft. Someone's thinking too highly of themselves.

    If anything the Faze and Optic and Obey editors get waaayyyy too much credit, all they can do is use shitty premade effects and crappy CC. The actual artists and designers of the actual games are the ones not getting enough credit.

    Exactly.

    The game art in some of the new games is fantastic, however clan logo's and shit are usually pretty lame.

    I mean deviant art peeps can do better than that lol.
