I support bases by inside-our-mind I support bases by inside-our-mind
Of course I support bases.. lol.
If you agree with my views, please take a look at #GoodBases, a group I made for such supportation.. .-. is that even a word? No? Well, now it is.
Base haters, there IS really good stuff out there made with bases, and it's not the same as art theft if you alter it enough. Bases are made because some people can't draw certain things, such as parts of anatomy or certain poses.
Me, I can't digitally draw a lot of things without a base, especially heads. It's also impossible for me to draw more than one person in one picture, digitally or traditionally (Why this is, I have yet to figure out).

Stamp itself was made with a base.

I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt because I'm assuming you're a beginner and everyone starts somewhere. On top of that, you're not using bases, so I expect some anatomy things. Everyone starts somewhere, and one day you could be better than I am now.
What I'm talking about in this stamp though, are people who literally don't even try. People who say "screw this base, I'm going to metaphorically take a dump on it and call it done". People who draw a line on each arm and then use the bucket tool and call it a shirt, or who use the spraycan tool, scribble something, and call it hair. You're at least trying, and since you're working on your own without a base, I can appreciate that. If you were to spend more than 5 minutes, I'm sure you'd be surprised at how detailed it could turn out.

Again, take about 20 minutes or more on a picture, and then show me the difference. You could be surprised and impressed with yourself.
Art is not a speed race. Unless you're a splatter artist, your work is meant to take time to create in order for its full potential to come to light. If you're speeding through it, you're wasting a lot of opportunity to, say, adjust anatomy, fix hair to make it flow better, or to make new, one-of-a-kind clothing.

Then don't take 15 seconds to do it like some people do.
I spend about an HOUR AND A HALF making each of my bases. The lease people can do is spend maybe an hour working on giving it hair and clothes.

AGREED!!

Though I admit I fill in bases with MSPaint but I actually Take TIME to fill them in. (Last one I used I filled it in by a hour >_<)

I've never actually MADE a base before for a reason, I'm not attempting one because I KNOW it'd look bad DX

Only two bases I ever made were done with MSPaint and I deleted one because it was such horrible quality. I managed to make the other one look good.. Too bad my first photoshop ones were bad before I got the hang of it! xD

I agree. my icon is basework, but i took like almost in hour of adding, taking away, coloring/recoloring, resizing, pixilizing, so it didn't look like total shit.
I can do my own work, but bases make it easier for me. I think MS Paint is just all- around crap. and just recoloring crap in 5 min isnt doing anything.
sorry if you is agree, but its my opinion and i stand by it.

I agree. In fact, my icon is made from a base I edited. I usually search for half an hour to find a base that doesn't have a head with a head with pointed edges. I draw my own art, too, but I use bases when I'm having artists block and everything I draw is horrible, or for fun.

Bases don't really help you, referencing real human beings, not tracing but referencing them and looking at them or whatever subject you draw is what helps you. Bases just hurt you because you never learn or go out of your comfort zone.

I'm not particularly fond of bases. I'm not a fan of the idea of altering someone else's work and calling it your own even with their permission. Or the idea of using a template instead of trying to teach yourself how to do it and improve on what you can do already.
I don't support it, however I am not against it.

I understand that.
What I use bases for a lot of the time is for practice. Using a base is an excellent way to practice certain qualities of drawing, such as clothing, shading, and highlighting.
It's really no different than giving a child a coloring book or Connect-The-Dots puzzle. Or Color By Number/Letter puzzle.

Yes. Bases can be a good outlet. But for me, it's too easily and too frequently abused for me to support it personality. But hey, you want to use a base go ahead. I don't hate on them.
