You don't have to do anything until February. Then you'll be randomly matched up against someone each week. The person (as voted for by the FH faithfuls) with the most most votes from each pairing moves on to the next round until we eventually have one winner... Not sure if that made sense, check out the Jan comp to see it in action :wink:

Btw it's nice to see a few newbies to the comp... don't let it stop there let's bring in some more :D

I saw your work in the thread you started. You make great use of brushes and backgrounds...something I'm still trying to master. Good job.

All fans are welcome here. It is all about respect. When fans of other teams come around and speak with knowledge and objectiveness they are always welcome.

It varies. But the last one is usually either fins or FH related as it is supposedly supposed to go up in the Graphics machine... :foundout:

Quick question to the artists here. I think I may have either helped myself or made my life more difficult.

Do any of the artists here use an LCD monitor that they do their work on? The reason I ask is I just purchased one with a 1000:1 contrast ratio. CRT's have a 10000:1 contrast ratio. I have been browsing around the site looking at the various graphics created by everyone and the ones I did on my CRT.

They look much brighter and more vibrant on my LCD. So my question is, do those of you that work on LCD displays make your images brighter than what you think looks good so it will show properly on a CRT?

For example... my signature was created when I had my CRT and everything blended perfectly. Now on my LCD I can see mistakes that I would not have spotted on my CRT and would have made them darker to hide it from view on my LCD... but it would have made it seem too dark on my CRT. Does that make sense to you? Or do I need to try to clarify more?

Thank you for the response. At least I know I am not going mad then. It looks like you and I will be experimenting in the up coming February competition to find a happy medium.

I was hoping to sell my CRT this week but I may keep it around as a second display to try to figure out the contrast discrepancies.

yes... if it has VGA, DVI, or S-Video inputs or you have an ATI all-in-wonder card with a breakout box that can output composite and component as well.

It depends on both your TV and video card. To add to the confusion, you can also purchase filters/converters to send the correct signal from your video card to your TV.

Most of todays TV's offer S-video input and almost all graphics cards have an S-video out.

If you wish to get the best results you should have a graphics card with DVI output and a TV that has a DVI input connector. The next best thing is to have a graphics card that has a break out box that can split the signal into component output and your TV having a component input.
