Once in a while I surf this site for entertainment. There are soooo many incredible artists.
I stopped in on QueerAngel's bio and stat page out of curiosity to see how many Gold trophies he had. The guy is an A+++ chopper in my book so I expected to see 20 or 30. He doesn't have any golds and only 3 silver. The guy rocks. I mean, yeah, most of his work is within the same genre but every one of them is poetry visualized. None??? I just think it is so weird it is worthy of comment. I have a theory. He enters his chops in shark infested contests. Prolly the reason.

He mostly entered in Freak Show contests which has one of the highest competing rates and entry numbers. Tougher to win there, as noone is bounded by the contest restrictions, is free to use his favorite techniques and ideas. Also, since it's a weekly open contest noone is restricted by time. So, from all the contests we have FS is the toughest to compete in.

Yeah, that is exactly what I think. That freakshow is a tough arena sometimes. He's got a niche style that is remarkably refined and elegant. Might be a bit ahead of his time, or behind. Hard to say.

I agree with Hitspinner,QueerAngel's work is really good,and I know alot of his work scores way lower than it should.I appreciate all styles of the awesome work folks do on here.This is an amazing site to explore your creativity,and crank out the chops that an individual is passionate about.I don't do his style of chops,but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the love and time he puts into his work.Ive read some members criticize some niche's as annoying and bothersome.I personally don't feel that's right. If a particular style isn't your taste,one should at least appreciate the time and dedication other people put into their work.I am never annoyed by a particular style of work,I find it to be beautiful in its own way.I just don't believe voters should be scoring any photoshop niche lower,just cause they don't like the style.Lets face it,if its good its good and should be be judged accordingly.On the other hand if its downright just poor quality(God knows I've had plenty of those) score that honestly.I like seeing the beginners as well, fresh and eager to chop,Sure there chops aren't gonna start out like masterpieces,but these choppers are a work in progress .Every cop they do,they learn and dust themselves off and try again.I guess what I am trying to say is that all chops are beautiful and creative in their own way.As choppers we should realize that not every chop is gonna be our style,but one should never diminish the fact that people work hard on their chops(Good or Bad) and I just believe more tolerance and open mindedness should take place when casting a vote on any chop.If certain chops annoy you,we'll that's just B.S. in my opinion.Ive held my tongue on quite a few comments that were made in the forums.Personally I don't want to get in back and forth quips with any members on here.Multiple chops in contests don't annoy me as we'll.The more the merrier!If you don't like a contest with multiple entries than don't enter it.Sometimes it just sounds like petty sour grapes to me.

That was kind. Thank you andwhat.
I liked your post. I suppose I agree almost entirely. I do get overdosed on certain styles though. That is why I mix mine up so much. I still have a signature style in my compositions but that is just ingrained from art classes. Some choppers get stuck in a particular way they contrast, shadow and highlight and that is a fast track to hack. I think you have to continually reinvent your whole chopping dynamics every so often. The exception to that is if you are making money at a certain style, like Rod. If he changes anything it is a bad move. He has a recognizable style that people pay for. And then it comes down to whatever floats your boat, If it's working for you, has therapeutic value to you and you are proud of your style... run with it
