not saying that I would be able to do better, I am only
speaking of the shortcomings that I see. My models are
much worse than most of the work I have seen
out there... and deserving of the same criticism that
I may have given others!

Now, having said that, there are those that believe that
the critic's merit is only as good as long as it comes from
someone better than themselves. I say horseshit. It does
not take a perfect modeler to make an observation, huge
ego's usually make for ignorance.

But the point that I make in this thread is that I don't really
have a "off" button for my version of the truth as I see it,
and I would like to know, and perhaps tell all of you, where
I stand- some other forums are not as open, or shall I say,
"adult" rated. (Not really sure if that is because of the
membership or because of the host) One thing I do know is
that modeling of a certain high caliber can only come from
adults. Sure a teenager can do some nice work, but, by the
time one makes it up to a level of experience that shows
real merit, guess what, they are an adult!
RI was founded on the premise of what no other boards had the balls to do: the ability to speak your mind and be able to be honest......not just the usual "good job" or "nice work" bullshit that you get at a lot of other places because it's what rules dictate.
