IMO people might be a bit intimidated because we have some phenomenal GDT makers on this forum.
I don't think anyone expects all of our GDT's to be award winning. If you have an idea for one you want to try, please, sign up! I'd love to see others creativity, even if they aren't photoshop experts.
Remember, YWG is a professional. Not to take away anything from the great work he does, but you don't have to hold yourself to that standard. No one here will.
Great post Jet - 100% in agreement. Personally, I love any and all GDTs: MS Paint GDTS, PhotoShop, or whatever floats your boat. No one should feel intimidated - its all about having fun and contributing to this (sometimes strange ) little community. No one's going to judge - jump in, grab a game or two, and have some fun!
