View Full Version : and the WINNER for "Best Preset Artist" of all time is.......
14th October 2006, 07:03
Keep in mind it was a very dificult choice to make since there are so many excellent present artists to choose from.

Then again.....this is only my personal opinion of this present moment in time. Favorites always seem to change when you watch Milkdrop long enough.
But I am sure most of you all agree that Aderassi's work is about as fine as it gets?

ya he does kick some ass

I have to strongly disagree I find phat and eo's to be the best there can be and second to that shifter.
I suggest you grab some of the beta presets if you have not done so already

oh dont get me wrong, eos makes the best waves, phat does the best edits, shifter is simply fucking crazy... but when it comes to the final product, adderasi is IMHO num 1, i'd love to see what he does with the betas
now if you take eos+phat as a team they make it a hard desision, but considering adderasi does it alone i gotta give him the cup.
dunno its really hard to say, cause my fav preset is shifters thousand monkeys.... but the 5 behind it are adderisi :)

51Strong.....I too once thought as you do. Yes indeed, for too once believed Eos and Phat to be the best Milkdrop artistry team of all. But not anymore... now that I have discovered this new Aderassi preset archive which contains so many presets by him I've never before seen! I assume they are his most recent creations, but whatever the case is they sure kick serious ass!
Although its remains true that some of my very favorite presets of all time are from Eos and Phat. However, they have also created some of the most ugly combinations of dancing graphics ever to have illuminated the pixels on the screen of my computer monitor! These graphical obiminations no doubt offended the Milkdrop Gods.
But fortunately most of the presets produced by Eos with his Phat friend's help have been most excellent and unique...so much so that MIlkdrop wouldnt be the same visulization program without them.
Anyway 51Strong, I believe that eventually at some point you will agree with me that Aderassi is indeed much better than Eos and Phat or Shifter...easily.
How about I send you this new collection of Adderassi presets for you to flip through and see what I am talking about?

Oh...I forgot to mention that much of redi jedi's work is in my favorites list. Plus redi is probably my favorite milkdrop artist just since he is the one keeping the hope for a new version alive.

Eo.S. is a girl. I also see you're still trying to get a rise out of us. Remind me, what exactly does any of this have to do with milkdrop development again?
18th October 2006, 22:29
Sherwin Maxawow : Yes id like that :)
19th October 2006, 07:40
My choice would be shifter. He creates presets that look like something you would never imagine seeing with your eyes.
24th October 2006, 17:52
Perhaps I picked the wrong forum for simply expressing my renewed admiration for Aderassi, who I just suddenly realized as being the all in all best preset author of all! It was like suddenly seeing the truth as plainly as the sun coming up in the morning. At least for me, most of his presets seem to have more of a true artistic quality. They just seem to be the prettiest to my eyes.
I guess my reason for telling all of you what I think is so that other people will see what I'm seeing and start producing more of the same kind of art quality presets I see in Aderassi. So, in that sense it is kind of development related...in a way.
Phat...I am not trying to get a rise out of anyone. But I have found in past experiences that its fairly easy to get a rise out of you personally.....and that sort of encourages me to type some of things I type. But honestly....its all very light-hearted on my side. I dont mean any bad feelings at all, so please dont take me seriously. I dont know you personally.....but I am sure you are cool dude.
No bad feelings intended.
I THINK messages boards like this one need to learn how to LIGHTEN UP and have a little more creative humor towards each other.
People are so rediculously defensive, over sensitive, and totally mean spirited these days it seems on almost all the boards I visit. There isnt any fun in life that way...unless the person is really sick. I really could go on about this topic for a while...but I need to go to work and have fun with my fellow co-workers.

i for one am glad you stick around here sherwin, IMHO you kinda hold the place together, generaly your the one to break the long silence, which is good! not to mention theres been many times i've thought that i might as well just quit wasting my time on all this, but then you make a post about how much you love milkdrop and its one of the few things that keeps me going... aside from my love of illogicaly logical colors and patters....
and besides what fun are these forums if i cant see phat getting into a fist fight with someone every week, i mean shit thats half the fun right there!(love ya phat)
i dont know the more i think about it, the more i see how imposible it is to name anyone as the greatest, i mean what about unchained? i havent seen his name here, and he made some CRAZY shit, not only that he did it with the earlyer versions of md, imagin what he'd do with the beta. that and there are soooooooooooooo many diffrent aspects to preset writing theres no way to gauge it.

Wow redi.....Man, thank you for writing such a kind hearted post about me. Honestly, your words really mean a lot to me.
Though I am just really sorry for not even responding back to you until now! Yet it really wasn't intentional at all, since yesterday was the first time I have even had my computer set up in 3 weeks!
Fact is I've been going through a long, long moving process in the past month or so, and the whole process has been a regular old NIGHTMARE! You know, just one of those "REGULAR OLD" nightmares.....like grandma always used to make?
Yet this one was even worse than what granny could fix up!
Due to an unexpected pain in arse, I was forced to camp out on my aunt's living room couch for what turned out to be almost three weeks! We are now finally moved into the place we should have already been several weeks ago, but the FLAKES who were selling the place to us were taking their own sweet time about moving out themselves so we could move in, and kept having excuses for what was taking them so long. We couldn't do anything about it but just wait and wait, and hope that maybe tomorrow or the next day we would be able to move in. They were actually nice people, good old Mr. and Mrs. "Flake" and kids. But they really could have given us a more accurate estimate as to just when the hell they would actually be moved out of the place.... instead of giving us so many false alarms!
I was starting to wonder if we were ever going to really move in this place or not! It was a real drag alright.
I would have maybe unpacked my PC, but my aunt didn't have any internet, other than her own dial up ISP. So I haven't really done much of anything online other than occasionally check my email at the library. But I would have certainly posted you a response from the library if I had seen what you wrote.
Anyway, I am glad to know that you appreciate me helping to keep this place alive, and I will indeed keep doing just that, as best as I can! You can tell all the Milkdrop entities and elves, including our old friends in the psycho ward hospital, and let them all know I am back!
Honestly though, this place really is somehow special, in a strange way for me. This is really the only place I spend time at on the internet, in spite of the fact that I really don't fit here, other than my insane appreciation of Milkdrop.
But somehow it goes beyond even that for me. As though this is the one place I come to for no definable, or rational reason. Yet that's just it! What calls me to this small corner of the web isn't anything rational, but rather irrational, in the pure sense of the word. And to me that has a kind of freeing effect on me and my creativity. Perhaps its helping to keep the brilliance alive, by my not ignoring the insanity side, which might actually be a vital of it! Or something like that.
Perhaps I fit in here, in the same sort of way that a local small town crazy guy fits in as a permanent fixture of the community. Always just there, sitting in front of the Ma and Paps drug store....and perhaps he is actually keeping the whole town from falling into hyper-dimensional chaos, in some mysterious way!
Well actually, it is the the duty of every local lunatic of every small peaceful country town, to protect it from being invaded by some nasty hyperdimensional creatures known as "ZYGOTS"....who would shred apart the normal reality of that peaceful little town in nanosecond!
But thanks to the local nut case, the Zygots are rendered harmless and end up actually helping to keep the Eco-system in good health. :)
....And so the little town of Sunnyville can be sunny and peaceful for one more moment.
But why on earth do the Zygots always seem to go after those adorable little small towns in the country, especially the ones that look a lot like they are right out of a Normon Rockwell painting?!
Ah but then again, why would old Norman Rockwell choose to paint pictures of such dull small town scenes anyhow?
Do ya suppose it was because normal Norman Rockwell simply had a funny appreciation for the "mundane" life settings found in heartland America??? Ummmm well...sure.
Why of course, aren't we all turned on by images of PURE BOREDOM???? Norman Rockwell sure must have been, or was that really his name????
Haha...why those clever Zygots sure did think of a good one by choosing the name Norman, since it does sound so very NORMAL! Like duh...hahaha! Zygots!
OK....nevermind....forget all this! I'd better take my meds now.

I hope that means you liked my post. I really did put some effort into that one, just to make up for not responding back for over month. :)

By the way, I might be going back down to central Florida sometime in this next year.
You seem, I used to work on a 300,000 acre cattle ranch for a few months based in the town of St. CLoud, back in 2004, and during that time I was able to explore many great locations.....especially one pasture that I some might call a field of dreams. Yet its well hidden, but would be ripe with fruit even after two of the three hurricanes that I experienced there.
If you aren't sure what I am talking about then, nevermind. But if you do have an idea, and are ever interested in knowing the location of the golden treasure fields....let me know. ;)
