That big cloud looks strange.

That's awesome, good job zeitgestt and pchammer. A plane in the background would be kind of cool.

I feel it was obviously gloss, not a cloud zeit. Maybe just some work on it, or as suggested, a plane. Great job.

She was flying East (left on a map). Just so you know, wouldn't want to make the plane fly the opposite way, might get some complaints.

If that was animated, it'd look even cooler.

LOL. I thought the same thing Mith. When I posted them I thought, damn, that could be a gif :)

how do you think we could make it a gif?

Only thing weird about it is the plane going in front of the duck. It probably should go behind or around him (but then he should be moved a bit right.)

Here's a good guide on the topic:

I suggest using the free image editing program GIMP:

Yep, I use Gimp for most everything. Well, Inkscape and Blender 3-D as well. But mainly Gimp.

i figured out if you stare at the lightning logo it will eventually turn into to logos  its pretty cool

What.....?

we could use this on:
national ghost hunting day: September 13th
or Edgar Allan Poes birthday: January 19th

 What.....?
My thoughts exactly. Perhaps someone has partaken in a bit of the mescaline. :)


 we could use this on
Neat idea. I don't think we should use that particular logo at all, or any like it. The manner it which it flashes could easily trigger a seizure - or a series there of - in those whom suffer from epilepsy. They should not have to put themselves at risk to search for information on DDG by way of their disability.

If you are so knowledgeable in seizures, then you would know that I don't have 3 flashes per second or any red flashes for that matter except for the two red eyes which is still far under a danger. The scrolling of these boxes to view the thread content, if scrolled quickly is more dangerous than that gif above. The luminescence should be within range as well and even if not, could be toned to a yellow flash instead of white. 

Anyone that sensitive needs a special software then to disable anything on the internet.

OK, troll. I'll bite.

Never said I was "so knowledgeable". Merely stated that it is of concern. That is what a discussion forum is about, we express our concerns in an adult manner without resulting to ad hominem attacks. I also know that averages are not set in stone for every case and there is a high level of volatility in anything related to illness. Furthermore, having been in a car accident several years ago and experiencing a traumatic brain injury, I can tell you that such images do momentarily disorientate and leaves me confused. It is only logical to believe that if my rather trivial response to it is such, that someone with a more delicate illness such as epilepsy would feel greatly more sever effects. What may trigger a synapse to misfire in one is wholly safe for another.


 The scrolling of these boxes to view the thread content, if scrolled quickly is more dangerous than that gif above. The luminescence should be within range as well and even if not, could be toned to a yellow flash instead of white. 

I am not an expert so I can not comment to what the effects of browsing a forum would be, I can only offer anecdotes. I do know that users over at THE infamous epilepsy forum "Anonymous" attacked had only minor issues using that platform until it got "raided" and filled with seizure inducing GIFs.

 Anyone that sensitive needs a special software then to disable anything on the internet. 
The above example would prove that to not be true. I assumption would be that they disable the usual culprits - scripting, flash, java, etc - or take great caution before proceeding into uncharted waters bu having it reviewed by a close friend or family member first. Just because many of us do not experience its ill effect, does not mean we should not be mindful of those that may.

Why is the earth glossy?

i dont really get why everyone fusses its glossy, appears fine to me.

Seriously? Why is the earth glossy? First you throw out about the cloud, when you knew it wasn't a cloud, then this. Do you ever do anything to actually help? Or just make lag comments of other peoples' work?

Lately there has been a lot of rude comments on my work or other people's work and a lot of them, not hard to see there is some jealously running around here as I've never seen a group, especially with guest accounts, going out of their way to take hits at the graphics here.

I do this to help, for fun, I don't get paid for it, nor do I feel the need to keep indulging in the childish bullshit.

I'm done here. I want my account deleted.

Come on, Pchammer. Everyone has to take even the most bullshit criticism out there with a grain of salt. If it ain't constructive, move the f*** on. If someone says your art is crap (which is isn't and they haven't) and they don't say "I don't like x because it's y" tell them to kiss your a** and move the f*** on.

Other people's criticism means nothing, don't delete your account.
