Aack! It's the millennium baby! Oh sorry, it's just you, Doc. There is a striking resemblance there. Were you ever abducted by aliens? Congratulations, Doc! You're art has made me laugh, made me uncomfortable, occasionally confused me AND made me think. You certainly deserve this award! Diane
I really don't care about your pictures... as I think bragging about 50 in a month..only speaks of the quality... what I find disgusting is that there are so many talented artists here... that really deserve this..but now it is just a joke and don't think anyone would want their name associated with it... thank God Renderosity isn't the only Digital Art board on the web...:)
50 in a month? I guess I don't have to ask about your "day job"..heh, heh. (Even if I didn't have my other "real" world concerns, truthfully, I could not put out 50 a month.) Okay...that said...I know there is a "more" to your plan. Care to share it? Now, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for kicking all the "wall-eyed vicki's in expensive temples" out of the hot 20. Next, I would like to cuss you to hell for taking all the spaces in the 20 that the vickis don't have anymore. Geeze...I will never make it. Perhaps, I will pull out my zbrush and give that gallery a shot. Last, but, definitely most important....I could not find a link for the armadillo. AND SINCE YOU PLAYED A ROLE IN THE DEMISE OF C&D, AS WELL.... could you please send it/her/him to me?
Well congrats I guess...I must say I had really hoped this honor would go to someone who had worked a little harder for it and showed more apparent talent though(Giana, LisaB, racin-jason, any of them I would have applauded genuinely as they really do have genuine talent)...but I guess I must keep in mind the point of Ironbear's article this week, if an artists intent is communicated effectively then technically it is art and since most of yours so clearly make us want to ventilate you with spears I can only assume that was your intent so I guess it is art after all. BTW, I do like Mr. Fluffers but I really DON"T like some of the things you have done with him and I do think your technique could improve(as could mine I guess I should add, although that is always my goal with my work).

Congrats Legume, not only have you managed to undermine the artistic merits of the many talented artists of this site you've also managed to make a complete mockery of the entire site. Bravo. If only I had your wisdom oh wise one, I could have saved myself the cost of a wacom.
Dr. Legume has been an inspiration to me, and has made me wonder what Ed "Big Daddy" Roth would have done in the 3D world. Legume has succeeded against all odds, and despite the admonitions of the King of Prussia that if he can't stand the mustard to stay out of the ketchup.
God damn...it's amazing. You can even state it to them, yet they still don't get it. The more you people make a big stink over things like the MPP and so on, the more it will carry on. Every hear of "No such thing as bad publicity!"? The simple matter is, if you don't like it, don't view it.....and go away! Congratulations Legume! I don't always find your art to my liking (mostly I do though :)), but I'll support your right to create it, post it, and become AOM. Dragontales PS - To Jan-Michael -- AOM is not always about those that create the best art, but it IS for those who make the most IMPACT with their art. I'd say Legume made a crater here on renderosity!!
Congrats Legume... least it wasn't an artist that puts nothing but naked babes with swords and crap. That to me is disgusting, and your images are refreshing from the same T&A that pollutes these galleries day, and day out. Thanks for giving us a good laugh and lightening our spirits in these dark times. Three Cheers! HIP HIP HORAY! I'd do more by my head is pounding thanks to a sinus migrane. LONG LIVE LEGUME!
Your head is somehow smaller than I imagined. I've hated some of your pictures and I've enjoyed others but regardless of the trolls, you do deserve the award. You've challenged many of us to actually think about some of the things we see daily. In this day and age that is a feat worthy of an award. Congrats.
Congratulations Legume. I once asked my art teacher what is art.?..what makes a true artist.? He said making people think,react,get mad,laugh. making something they would remember...if they saw it after a couple of years and think " oh yeah thats him/her. I think you`ve accomplished all the above and more. So with that said anyone who denies that your work is art is far from being an artist him of herself. I hope your going to be here for years to come. Anne-marie
LOL to funny LOL Well Legume you was right about one thing. for every rude comment someone makes you get 2 more votes for artist of the month just to spite us. you must be proud to earn artist of the month out of spite only. I would type more but I think Jan-Michael said it very well. So enjoy your spite award :-)
Legume, you and your followers sorrowfully misunderstand the case against you. It is not a matter of what this community considers art, and what isn't. It is not a matter of weather your work is art or not. Anyone can scribble on a piece of paper and call it art, and no one can build a case against it simply because art is subjective. You have a right to create artwork and post it here, and no one has the right to tell you that your work isn't "Real Art". -However- What people here have against you is the fact that you are being considered Artist of the Month for this entire community - an award which you are obviously not qualified to hold when your work is compared to the work of the hundreds of other more deserving artists here. Artists who work hard to MODEL, TEXTURE, LIGHT, and Animate their images meticulously to create their vision of art. Artists who go against the naked-chick-in-a-castle trends, and barely get recognition for their HARD WORK. Artists which deserve their recognition, but are instead pushed aside by the recognition your lax attitude towards your own work receives. You seem to be an intelligent person, and I think that you honestly know deep down that there are others more deserving of this award than you. And all of you members that have supported him, also know deep down that there are more deserving artists here as well. As to why you have received so much praise, I can only begin to fathom, but then again, your quote said it best Legume; You know how stupid the average person is?... Artist of the Month has now officially lost all meaning it had once had. It is no longer something to strive for, but something to point and laugh at on your way to the galleries. AHS
Your art is somewhat funny, but the quality is very poor and doesn't show much artistic ability on your part. I'm sure the next artist of the month will be a retarded, blind chimp that draws squiggles with a red crayon. This is the way Renderosity is heading, so I wouldn't be surprised if this happens.
