    There's a couple people who I could say could get the designer rank, but none that I would say "how have you not gotten it yet"

    I think the real thing is that you could go message another designer you know and get solid feedback on a piece, or you can post it on the graphics section of rune-server for the majority comment of "wow looks nice good work". That's why I don't share, because for the most part I get nothing from it except for kids messaging me to design their logo for 10 bucks.
    No, I won't design for you.

    Understandable that people attend more to IRL events than showcase work on R-S.
    But theres people with Designer Rank that has not posted anything since 2014..
    Ive gotten so much help from Designers on r-s and i am forever grateful. But some of them are unactive and dont care anymore most likely

    I was going to post here quite a lot, but I just haven't found much inspiration. Last stuff I did was on that Empire rsps when I got requests. I go through deviantart and behance quite a bit seeing stuff I wish to do but have no idea how to go about doing it. Sort of like I don't trust my own skills or I don't have the motivation to learn which is bad on my part. Would love to do stuff in After Effects so badly, just can't get my hands on it, whether free or not.

    Just work, practice and do over and over again. I feel that way too.. look at others stuff and think wow how do I do that etc. But when u compare ur old work with ur recent work you can see that it's all about learning, practicing, starting over and keep producing, the rest will come.

    It isn't just the graphics section that's suffering. Anything rank related is. There's not even a handful of promotions per year in r-s nowadays for any special rank. It feels like the staff isn't promoting anyone because the people who have ranks from the year fuck off have set the bar so high, not because they were this experienced back when they got it, but because they're that experienced now - and that's the bar they use to measure people up.
    I could write a massive block of things that's wrong with rune-server nowadays but I just don't see it worth my time.

    I don't think having a high standard is a bad thing - and if that makes people feel like they shouldn't post then that's an entirely different topic, and honestly the bar wasn't set that high, most were specialized for a few techniques/styles and seemingly didn't expand from there and it made them look like good 'overall' but never seeing them attempt other styles.

    it's because your palette isn't refined - All you need to do is mess with features, learn tutorials and experiment until they become second nature to you - you'll know you've reached this point once you can focus on a very small portion of an entire piece and deconstruct the methods of HOW they did it. Or at least gain ideas on how YOU would go about doing it. Compare and contrast your work and watch speed arts, and what have you. Most people can't just think of a concept/style/technique off the top of their head, usually it's something they've slowly familiarized themselves with over a long time.

    I probably know about 70% (if that) of Photoshop's features, this inhibits certain styles to be completely elusive to me and I'm left clueless - but that's just inexperience and lack of practice on my part.


    Isak is right, practice, practice, practice.

    The bar was never really set high to begin with when the designer section first came to be. With the likes of Behemoth, Saint, Whiteboy, Myself and many others who were among the first designers on this website. If any of my old posts still exist you will see the quality of my work back then was really shit compared to what a few guys on here can do now.

    A lot of people didn't really specialise in one style back then but once you found your niche you just kinda stuck with it.

    Edit: Also just a quick mention on ranks. Back when Designer first launched we used to vote each other in. So god knows what they do now.
