I had that image on my screen and walked away.
When I came back I saw it from a distance, kinda scary.   :D

:son:

I know who link is, I just don't know if it's from a specific LoZ game.

Don't worry, I don't know which game it is from either, I found it on Google.


Is it Minish Cap?

Love the Shining mosaic, maybe have some of the door overlapping the mosaic instead of just bordering it?

Okay so this Shining mosaic, I feel like it looks cool but isn't actually creative.  I mean, I didn't make that movie, I didn't take the picture, I'm just turning it into tiles with help from Photoshop.  Have I created something?  I had to make choices as to which tile colours to actually use because of computer limitations, but beyond that all I've done is I made a physical representation of something I already saw.  Then again isn't everything a repost of a repost of a repost?

You're exploring technique rather than subject matter. Depends what you mean by creative I guess.

Good point.

When I was in art school I had a still life drawing class.
For my first homework assignment I drew a crumpled up sock :)

And? I have sketchbooks full of exercises and sketches, stuff I'd never expect anyone to interpret as art- and never want to see the proper light of day, either. You have to make mounds of shit before you can produce quality content, that's the nature of anything.

That's why we're getting a new rulebook.

Showing your mounds of shit to others is important to get feedback, help, tips and overall criticism of how bad it smells but how you can make it smell better. Or worse, in this case. I guess?

Yeah, it is, but we were discussing whether or not it was technically "art" (as ridiculous as debates about that can get). You have to make stuff to get good at making stuff, and hey, there'll be diamonds in that shit if you press it hard enough. I think? Science?
