Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Please stop trying to be Digg/Reddit. It's really quite embarrassing. You post these stories way past their expiration date and provide no meaningful content to contribute enlightenment or lolz. We've already seen the story. We've already read the comments. Don't fall into the trap of pandering mainstream drivel to drive traffic. If my grandma knows about it, it doesn't belong on
Exactly. When I saw these photos a few days ago, I immediately recognized the lack of technical skill... however, I was still moved to tears (yeah, I'm a girl, get over it) and several other emotions.

Despite the lack of technical skill, the artist achieved the goal of having me feel that I was standing in another's shoes. And the fact is, he got better at it with practice. With some work (and a good drawing tablet), he could easily learn to rework these photos to eliminate the technical rawness that distracts the eye and impedes the viewer's immersion in the work and its meaning. I won't hold my breath - I'm more than satisfied with what he has chosen to share with us.

(4) Yeah. People are that fucking stupid. And not high school drop-outs either... Ph.D.'s are really that stupid. It boggles the mind.
...then you only pay for the one you like - but keep everyone elses servers as well.
No, the buyer ONLY has rights to the "winning" design he paid for if he pays for it, and only the rights stipulated in the proposal. Losing designers keep complete ownership over their work.
