I think spypilot should chill out. Veteran doesn't mean an artist who has been here for a long time, he could still suck. A veteran is an artist (I use the term artist obviously for this site, does not have to be an artist) who has a real talent for his boxes and shows this.
I personally don't mind ads, they don't kill me. However, you have been doing it alot. Also, so maybe you are a better artist than diva, that doesn't give you the right to badmouth him/her. If he/she puts alot of effort in, you could have a real fight on your hands. You are not a brilliant artist, a decent one yes, but nowhere near brilliant.
So, in the end of the day, it's your fault for being put against vgmaster simply because you badmouthed diva and came across as cocky. It's good to see you apologized though.
So anyway, good luck paper sonic! :P
