Smh.. Everyone gonna be designing now.. I used to be tutorial heavy at one point in my designing career

Daiz - January 20, 2009 10:23 AM (GMT)
yeah I honestly dont use em heavy I just check em for inspiration and guidance. plus nobody on here has tha patience to go through them shits I know I dont :lol: I just thinks its nice to have em all in one place for reference

Skorp - January 20, 2009 10:25 AM (GMT)
Nice. I always wanted to learn but you right, i deff dont have the patience for all this..but still, i might give it a shot one day, just not post it cuz it'll prolly come out ass

Daiz - January 20, 2009 10:29 AM (GMT)
those are pretty much advance tutorials but people can learn tutorials but still not have the flavor for it I been doin this shit for 4 years and Im just now gettin decent

reverehomeboy31 - February 8, 2009 05:57 PM (GMT)

:o damn, i guess that goes for anything that involves creativity. Fuck that ive already spent 6 years writing..if i start doing this, i'll prolly give up writing :P

hhealter - February 10, 2009 05:26 PM (GMT)
You need to take these ALL down right now unless you have recieved direct permission from the creators of each and every one of them.

Posting tutorials you don't have work for is to the GFX community, what biting an entire song is to an emcee.

damelokidd124 - February 10, 2009 05:35 PM (GMT)
Lol.. I cant say it isnt but its not that serious IMO.. The world isnt going to end because no one here besides myself or Daiz are going to take this seriously.. And all your doing is learning.. Its more like reading lyrics and practicing than biting.. Its not like we're taking the sigs, editing out names and putting DMK on them.. Its all learning certain things but nothing to be punished for.. Im in a GFX/Web Design Class as we speak..

Rick Dickulos - February 10, 2009 05:49 PM (GMT)
lol learning how to do certain effects ain't biting, GFX is about the creativity not if you can do a certain effect. If some dude read all Rakims lyrics and was taught what multies were, it doesn't mean he could write like Rakim :yayo:

hhealter - February 11, 2009 08:41 PM (GMT)
Hey, don't shoot the messenger. On HHE as well as on other sites, I've seen cats who've given credit for using tutorials getting crucified by the creator just for posting without permission.

I'm just tryna help here.

damelokidd124 - February 11, 2009 08:45 PM (GMT)
Thank u messenger.. Lol

Daiz - February 12, 2009 08:22 PM (GMT)
LOL Tutorials are basically just teachin methods anybody who says its bitin probally sucks cuz everybody learned sumthin from some where nobody wakes up and starts droppin crack designs and shit thats like callin a Text Book bitin
"Nigga how you get that answer"
"Its in chapter 3 of our geometry book"
"Nigga you needed a book? thats bitin"

Daiz - February 12, 2009 09:15 PM (GMT)
and nobodies takin credit for them or nuthin I dont even use tutorials honestly but if I see sumthin like "Damn How'd he do that" I might look it up to learn how to do it myself and do it my own way Im not gonna just start doin shit EXACTLY like them

hhealter - February 13, 2009 12:41 PM (GMT)
Nobody said there's anything wrong with using or posting tutorials, all I said was that in my experience, posting tutorials, even when credit is given, WITHOUT prior permission amounts to biting. A GFX board attempted to spam HHE at one point for doing this, and unlike you Daiz, we'd actually bothered giving credit, we simply hadn't asked for permissions. The reasons given were it amounted to the equivalent of biting.

If you actually read properly, you'll see I never called it biting, simply I said that it was the equivalent.

Daiz - February 13, 2009 05:22 PM (GMT)
nigga I aint scared of nobody

That shits just stupid..... you have to learn how to read and write music am i biting every time i play an E note?

hhealter - February 16, 2009 06:27 PM (GMT)
@Daiz - DF does being scared have to do with this? I'm pretty sure you're at least 18, yet you're acting like a 15 year old with Napoleon Syndrome. Nobody is threatening you or insulting your pride, so grow up.

@ElCamino72 - If you're calling my post stupid, read on. If I've misenterpreted, and you're calling the actions of the spammer stupid, excuse me, as the following rant does not address you, only those who don't seem to be understanding what I'm saying.

I think you need to learn to read and write English. I've written a completely innocent post trying to do you guys a favour and stop this site being blacklisted by gfx heads, cause that's what (hold on let me make this clear) in my experience (clear enough) tends to happen when you don't get permission, and you kids are trying to start problems.
Let me make this simple for the few of you who seem incapable of understanding.

I did not say it IS biting
I likened it to biting in rap
^^These two things are not the same
I never threatened anyone, so for those who are insecure about their masculinity/status on this site/status in life/are just generally retarded, don't feel like you're under fire
I am not attacking you/your site/anything, merely passing on some knowledge

and finally

NO SHIT! To me, also, it makes no sense to make a tutorial, and not make it public if people are giving credit, and you're not asking for money, but I am not these people, and cannot speak for them. I can merely share the benefit of my experience.




Hope that makes things clear. And really, Daiz you need to stop feeling so paranoid.

And don't call me a "nigga", "nigger" or any variant.
If you're ignorant, that's your own choice. If you feel empowered that you can use a word that was used to disrespect your ancestors, that's good for you.
But I can trace my family back to Ghana, and we've never been slaves to any man, so don't group me with yourself in your ignorance.

Daiz - February 16, 2009 08:50 PM (GMT)
Im twenty and if anyone wants to pop off about us hyperlinkin to they shit I'll ban em point blank period plus did you even click em all of em are from an official photoshop source

Daiz - February 16, 2009 09:00 PM (GMT)
also dont talk down to me like Im some kind of ignorant fuck I know where the word comes from and I know the history and to me its about evolution and the fact that its lost power so dont ever in your life group me in with stupid fucks that just use it to use it.

hhealter - February 16, 2009 10:30 PM (GMT)
^If I've broken a rule, ban me. It's your loss.
Otherwise, as I said, grow the fuck up and learn to read. Re-read your last two posts, and mine, and then think about what you're saying.
Just because you're making a fool of yourself by being ignorant, don't try and blame me.
As for from an official PS source, I'd imagine because that "Source" has permission from the owners. I mean I may be wrong, but that WOULD make sense, would it not?
Why must you try to turn everything to conflict.
Real talk, Daiz you might be a man legally, but you're a child.
Until you mature some, don't direct posts at me on this board, or any others, because I have no intention of replying to them. I'll do likewise.
I have no intention of filling this board with spam, as I wouldn't do it on my own.
And get your facts straight, you tried grouping yourself with me, boy.

Daiz - February 16, 2009 10:37 PM (GMT)
I aint turned shit into a conflict YOU DID cuz you aint even readin my shit I didn't aim shit at you you aimed at me Im like WTF? Im still stunned

Smith - February 17, 2009 02:43 PM (GMT)
holy fuck hhealter, chill the fuck down.

damelokidd124 - February 17, 2009 04:30 PM (GMT)
Lmao.. Aint been in this thread in a while..

Elcamino72 - February 17, 2009 06:26 PM (GMT)
Its not our loss if we ban you.. its quiet a gain....
