you know what? i love pixel art. the soft edges and the blotchy
reality of real life. sure, i am glad that gimp can stroke paths nicely
now. but what about the pixel? vector art will make such clean edges
on everyones computer that the real world will become so disappointing.
all for what? scalibilty and cleanliness? crap. fonts gone wild.
does the create group want some space on the gimp planet, btw? i was
sorry when i saw all of the self linking going on there. it is like a
perfect circle made in points on the computer....
let me know :)
