Hahaha, Wow!!!!!

This is way off topic, but so stunning that I think it's worth mentioning here.

Someone sold a fake copy of Halo 2 on eBay for a sh!tload of money, and someone BOUGHT IT!!! It is unbeliveable...

The 'buyer' is wise to the 'seller's game. The whole point of that is the 'seller' can't go to EBay or the authorities and say "hey, this guy didn't pay for my fake, photomanipped game!" Because the folks at EBay are just going to go "hmm... Sales fraud. How many years is that?"

The point is: the buyer obviously isn't going to pay that, and so nobody else gets scammed. At ridiculous amounts of money like that, the folks at EBay might just notice it and catch the seller anyway.

And so the moral of the story is this: Don't sell fake **** on EBay.

(unless it's this. )

Wow, I am honored! I did not know I would have been missed by fellow forum members, lol.

Yeah, its been a long while since I last posted. Mostly because I had to budget my time, since the end of the year approached and I need all my credits in order to graduate. Well, I have graduated and now it's summer time! I'm gonna be traveling around the americas tho (Brazil and Canada), so I won't be around much.

I also haven't posted much because I have not upgraded my gun at all. When that day comes (very soon, I believe), I'll be back to bother you guys with repeated noob questions

That second paintball drawing never got done. It's been put on hold, and since then I've worked on others. My current project is a portrait of my girl (as a birthday present), and I'm taking extra time to make it perfect. When I have time, I'll draw more paintball scenes.

Thats all folks, and sorry about posting this on the wrong forum.

PEACE!
