A few points:ok! I see that everyone has opinions but, I dont even see any work that u have actually done? I am just trying to understand a little more who is critiquing me. Not saying that you guys dont know what your talking about. I would like to see your ideas if you have some. Also what is a contour tool? I am in Illustrator CS4 and 5
It doesn't matter what anyone else has done or hasn't done, don't be so thin skinned. Do you think the public is going to care if you approve of their opinions?
