I agree with zoneone. If you want to get some people to actually like you art, you need to make sure it's somewhat original. You just cannot post something this low-qual here and expect it to be welcomed. Take a look around this whole site, not just a few catagories, and you will see what people are expecting from you as an artist. But I also feel as though you might be new to the world of digital artistic expression. If this assumption is accurat, please just post these first few practice runs on a personal website of your own. It doesn't take much to add picts to websites, just make sure that where your adding them, let people know if this is your first attempt at this or whatever. Kudos to you for at least being honest about where you got the pict from and from whome. Just make sure that you are more accepting of what riticisms are sent in your direction regarding your work. These people doing the criticizing are probably much more experienced with photo-editing software than you are.
So are we supposed to think this is art? All you did was rip off a photo from cnn and push a button to change the hue. Its unoriginal, it doesnt even have any message to it. And its not even goodlooking enough to make up for the lack of originality. Dude. You can't just brainvomit in our direction and expect us to be like "ohh!! we love it!!!"
