I noticed you guys dont have any room or designated spot for GFX or Photoshop.
Although you have a small "Art" Section, GFX is different because its not like drawing or making sprites.

I think there should be an area to show off, sell (trade for pokemon), giveaway, do tuts, & give out renders/c4d's

^ Some people wont understand what i just said ^.^
Sorry; Just the terms i know :P
Thanks for reading.

There's a graphics & photography subforum in the Art Gallery you might have missed. But I know we have a graphics section, because I have a gallery of my icons in there, so yeah. Dunno about the other stuff though, because I don't go in there often. But yeah, we do have a graphics area.

Yeah, there's a graphics area that we have. It might've been a little small for you to see or something, but we definitely do have one, riiiiight here. *click* (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=71) Just read the rules and you should be fine there. :)

Yup. Everything you said you can do in the Graphics & Photography
did you even check?

For I'm not sure about the sell/trade for pokemon though. It might be allowed, I heard of art trades though not sure if that was on here. lol

Adding to what was said, there's a graphics giveaway thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=194031) and a place for tutorials & resources (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=226684) (which includes renders/cd4's), if you click those two links. :D

As for showing off, there's galleries as Sydian mentioned, though "selling" graphics for Pokemon trades probably won't be allowed, though you could always make a trade thread in the trade corner, and then give away graphics + Pokemon for another Pokemon, but graphics directly for Pokemon probably wouldn't work out, since people would be likely to feel ripped off, though that's just how I see it. :x

Sorry must have missed it :P
Theres a lot of sections so its kinda hard to find.

"Did you even check"

No need to be rude; I didnt see it. Did you check your attitude before posting?..

Thanks everyone else for being nice about it ^.^
I must have overlooked it.

Selling graphics for pokemon sounds like a neat idea to me, I don't see any reason why it would be actively prohibited if both parties agree to the deal. Which is only logical.

→ Trade only Pokémon for Pokémon
You may not trade Pokémon for money, merchandise, video games, trading cards, collectibles, Wiipoints, Neopet points, etc. Keep trading within the actual Pokémon games.

Because it is in the rules of Trade Corner for starters(even though it doesn't expressly mention Graphics). When you trade pokemon for something other then another pokemon it leaves the person trading the pokemon more open to being scammed then the other party involved(or at least in the eyes of some people which is why I believe the rule is in place for anything other then pokemon).

Dang.. :/
I think its a good idea though.. May get more people to start GFX.
So maybe someone should suggest it be allowed?

I mean its the same as someone giving you a pokemon for free and you giving them a banner as a thank you gift :D
^Joke. :P

If you wish to do something like that, do it privately, over MSN or something, but trading graphics for Pokémon as an open option on PC is untidy and not needed. But of course agreements could be made among two friends privately, and that's the only decent alternative I see.

While we're here, is there anywhere you can post Video Editing?

I'm not 100% certain, but you might be able to post them in Culture and Media (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29), specifically The User-uploaded Entertainment Thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=251391). I know that applies to if you make the entire video yourself, not certain if it applies to you editing a premade video.
