BUT THAT'S THE REASON WE'RE ALL HERE!

I do apologies for how this place just sorted faded into obscurity. I never planned to leave without a proper goodbye because I had a lot of fun here. It was a shame it couldn't stand up without me around tbh, with the amount of work I'm doing these days I can't give this place the time I use to.

Don't forget how the OP is setup though. Anyone of you guys feel free to boot this place up again and I'll always swing by when I can, because I haven't said my goodbyes yet.

It must be said though, I really don't know what I have to add to this place anymore. There's a cheeky thrill in seeing Pinnacle in the last three pages of the creator corner after all this time but that does raise some questions as to what straggling community survives on this forum. It's been two years and it's my knowledge that there hasn't been any new content for the game in some time. The "shop" has always been more of a guise for a community I wonder is still actually about. I'd rather we all leave with fond memories than drag this place through the dust. My absence went on a lot longer than expected, so I'm sorry if we missed a trick, but life's a B.

Saying that, I'm outstanded with the talent floating about the forum now. I haven't gone far but ghostofillusion and your team are producing some truly fantastic stuff, I honestly question if we could compete. Seriously guys, some industry standard quality work over there. I can only recommend that you all try to develop a signature style of your own now. It looks as if you've all studied (and mastered) countless tutorials, but one persons work doesn't stand out from the others. I fear that if we threw all your work into a bag I wouldn't be able to pick ghost from jelly. I know you use what works but I think almost all of you are ready now, to use your knowledge and understanding to be freer with your work.

That unfortunetly just about wraps up all the advice I have left to give to the forum's graphic community. I suppose if there was enough interest Pinnacle could take a turn and I could get some people into concept art and digital painting, possibly 3D modelling in time. I will eventually do something with my dA account and have some of the work I've been doing on there, for now I can give ya a sneak peak at projects I'm working on right now...



Paintings is obviously not a service I'm about to offer everybody for free but I'd be happy to pass on anything I've learned as I did before. Aside from that I don't know what is left, I'm sure we could have some sweet results from a rekindled sig contest too. Is Pinnacle dead? We'll see

Bwnci, before you leave, know that you guys are what inspired me to get into graphic art. If it wasn't for you, i probably wouldn't know anything about Photoshop to this date

You guys will go down for that, definately

Good luck in life.

The first real sigs I made were inspired by Pinnacle and her sig makers.
Like so many others here, I got started because of this shop.

But, life takes precedent over any graphics or forum.

Goodbye, Pinnacle Sigs.

Thanks for the feedback. And I almost entirely agree.

I was actually considering taking a medium-ish hiatus from signature making, moving on to more larger pieces. I attempted to do it a few months ago, but failed. Maybe it's just about that time.



Goodbye Pinnacle. You can check out, but you can never leave.

Au revoir mon ami.

Well bye pinnacle.
Unforunately I didn't know you very well. Wish I could have considering there seemed to be alot of insparation from the amazing artists that worked here.
Well, I'm going to say thankyou as well. For ultimately if it weren't for you I wouldn't have been inspired to learn what I have done today.

So thankyou pinnacle and your amazing members.
Goodbye.

Aww, this looked like such a wonderful shop...
All the artists were so good...
Well, that's that.

Anyway, nice to end on 499 pages...

This is actually legit.

My newest sigs are based off of pinnacle artists' sigs, and I still lurk here for inspiration.

Goodbye, PS.

First there was 1s Sigs

And then came Pinnacle

The rest is history....

Spore led me to pursue further skills in Photoshop but it was the examples posted here that opened up my eyes. It's one thing to know the tools (which I did since 2003) but it's another to crack open your mind and explore the possibilities. You start out with a giant rectangle of space and whatever you fill it up with is ok as it is art which is subjective and always in the eye of the beholder.

From Hyc's last sig he posted here, I knew he stopped caring, lol. Everyone else just moved on. Frankly, I don't know why the SPORE I'm still on here. Somedays I wish for a permaban so I know I can never come back. The people I give a dam about are people I chat with outside the game so I wouldn't lose it all.

I rag on this forum all the time because it is a pile of crap but 2 1/2 years ago, you would have never thought of saying that.

Oh well. Just another page in a chapter of the book of life.

But thanks for checking in. You make this fangirl all giddy.

And take this. It will help you!

I think this shop should be laid to rest on the 500th page.
