I apologize in advance to those of you who came here expecting an update on the actual mod... Is this the most mature or reasonable way to go about keeping one's reputation intact? Absolutely not. Is it funny and still perhaps a little helpful to those who want to know how I go about digital painting? Hell yeah! Enjoy...and sorry again if I've disappointed.

Jealous, in denial, rude, or perhaps simply ignorant. Either way, if somebody is so convinced that my artwork HAS to be stolen from somewhere...I guess I should take that as a compliment because surely it's a sign that I've made it quite accurate to the source material!

I've got nothing against critique and, trust me, I've had my work torn to shreds before... But I will not stand for somebody calling me a thief or a fake. Not cool...

I think ignorance and exaggerated egoism is the main problem of humanity in general. Being just a little bit altruistic and they rip you apart, especially in our western society. I mean there are people whining about some slight slowdowns in their high speed internet connections (just for example) or about bad models in a non-constructive, let's say it: destructive way which shows in how a bad state our society is in general. We've lost ourselves. Ignorance and egoism in connection with capitalism will make humanity suffer for a long period in future but we won't recognize it in our very limited eternal decadence. Many people think that attacking or insulting another person makes themselves standing in a better position instead of constructing a strong altruistic network and helping others just as Marc Aurel said in one of his famous cites. I won't exclude myself of this, I'm not better than others.

However, back to the main topic: You didn't disappoint in any way and it makes me sad to see that you had to do this. I have great respect to all your work and all the time you spend in it just for making other people happy for an unknown amount of time. I wish you great success with this fantastic project and that all the ignorance and egoism will be crushed and vanished even if this is not possible at all. Cheers!

Yes, most people are far too shortsighted for our species to ever achieve what you describe... This is why Utopia is impossible, as defined by Sir Thomas More; it's not in our nature, not yet.

Thanks for the thoughtful words!

Yes... Remind me not to include "time management skills" on my list of proficiencies when I hand in a resume... Ha!

In truth though, I've been meaning to post "process" videos to my portfolio so people can see my work flow. In that sense, I've killed two birds with one stone. How's that for efficiency?

Obvious edits in the portfolio piece, of course...

No modder however great or insignificant, no matter what they're level of talent or expertise should have to endure slander or unjust accusations. In America, there was once a concept known as "innocent until proven guilty." It was an unusual concept for its time, in a world where the opposite view had held sway for centuries. I would like to think that this same concept "innocent until proven guilty" would perhaps be the views held by each modder, one for another.

The_Farseer, like Warb_Null and others, is a master of his craft. I have held conversation with him on topics other than modding, and have found him to be both original and honest. These are things to be cherished and cultivated in each of us, rather than desiring to cheapen another in order to feel good about one's own self.

Each modder is so because they each feel that they have something to share, be that a map, a mod, special effects, music, coding, or even research / beta testing. Character assassinations, demeaning comments, harassment; these things have no place here among us.

So to those who would practice such arts, I ask that you hold an honest evaluation of yourself, and find the source of your feelings. If you are jealous, then acquire learning and become better. Are you prideful; then produce your works and let others judge your merits. You may find that not everyone has such an exalted opinion of you as you do, and it is good to be humble. Whatever selfish desires drive one to be a demeaner of others, they should know that such will not always be tolerated by the honest ones. The time will come when you will be blocked, dropped, and ignored. Ask yourself if the path which you are on is really worth the fall.

The_Farseer is a great modder, and a true master of his craft. So say I, and so should say we all.

While I usually focus my efforts on pirate and historical Age of Sail games and don't get involved with anything else, I do want to support your post here.

As hard as many people may find it to accept, what you say is the truth. On the whole, providing positive support to people is always the best thing to do.

Description

Some in the modding community have said that I rip off my work... That I have the audacity to "copy-paste" from Google and/or steal from other sources... 237 Photoshop layers, 127 different hues, and several hours of patience from my wife say that's a load of crap.

Here's a short video explaining the process. Consider this proof of the ignorance of a few and brief tutorial for the rest of you who can appreciate the work that goes into anyone's art.
