It's got something to do with the depth and lighting, that's the thing that's making it look cut n paste and a lil off but I'm just not the best person to tell u how to improve on it cos I myself suck at it! I just know that something's not quite right. Hopefully someone with a better understanding of depth & light will come along and advise u on it.
Was that so hard? We all put in a lot of work to get these image up for you to use. For free (I'm presuming you didn't donate anything?) We don't ask for much, so it's nice if people can just take two minutes to read our stock rules before putting their image up.
Haha, yes, it's my mistake, I'm sorry about that. I used a lot of resources, so I probably forgot that a couple of them requested names to be put on specifically. (: Usually all they ask for is a link back and such, so I assumed. My fault, my sincere apologies.
No problem, yes I think some of them only ask for that as they probably think we're lucky if people can even be bothered making just a link. Which is sad. Like one of the stockist said, it's no wonder other stockists have gone or started charging. So much work for people that can't be bothered, I think charging is going to be the way. It's one thing to enjoy putting free stock out so people can feel inspired and create something wonderful, and another to regularly feel deflated when people keep taking with no look backwards.
Haha, I generally always link back in some way or another, because, to be honest, it's not my work, and I'd feel wrong just taking it like that. Also because I'm not exactly fond of copyright infringement matters, it scares me.
I do know some of my friends that take textures and other stuff and don't link back (I don't know if it's because they cannot remember where they got their stock, or can't be bothered), but, yeah, I get what you mean. It would be sad if people started charging, though, because, to be honest, people like me can't really afford it, and just want some way to be able to express themselves through art work.
That being said, I really think it's awesome what you're doing. Again, I'm sorry for neglecting to put your name up. x-x Big boo boo on my part.
