Original comment:

OK, firstly, this is a joke more than anything. I myself have plenty of stamps in my shoutboard. It's a dA fad that will likely only continue.

That being said, there are some people who just can't get enough of these stamps, and have several that basically say the same thing. Sometimes they DO get cluttered. Sometimes the eye candy is quite intimidating. Sometimes they don't all load, and add to the time it takes to see someone's front page in full. But anyway...

I thought this stamp would look funny, especially being ripped in half rather than the usual rectangle.

I drew the entire thing myself by hand in MS Paint, stamps, text, angry emote and all. Seriously, having too many stamps doesn't make me angry like this little guy, this is merely something to laugh at. Feel free to use it as you please!

Critique this if you like. Keep in mind, I myself think it could have been better had I put more time into it, but it was fun to make, and at least a decent amount of work. I'd love to know what others think.

I am writing a critique on this because of the fact that it applies to me over 9000%.

The whole stamp idea is constantly overused by Premium members, such as myself. At times, when I attempt to view my own page, it takes around 1 minute [Verizon uberFIOS] for the page to load 100% because of the fact that I have sooooooo many stamps cluttering up my page.

And this Stamp, of sorts, completes me. I don't think I've seen anything, at least along these lines, like this Stamp implemented on the site yet, and I think that it's great that someone, in this case :iconpyro-sith:, finally stepped up the plate and screamed this out loud.

The technique of this Stamp is sort of hit-and-miss, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I can tell that Pyro put in a lot of work here, but I honestly can say that there are definite grounds for improvement. For example, the color of the text doesn't necessarily blend well with the background of the torn stamp. It clashes, in my opinion. Orange and Blue gradients aren't necessarily amazing.

However, it's the fine details in this that make me giggle ever so slightly, such as the fact that the emote is foaming at the mouth. I find it to be fitting for the overall theme of the Stamp itself.

All in all, I find this stamp to be awesome. If you make a stamp that says "I HAVE TOO MANY STAMPS" I would definitely put it at the top of my Stamp Box on my page, lol. Great work! :D

Wow what a true statement this is, I do have too many stamps! This deviation is just amazingly awesomely cool, and i don't care if that is grammatically correct! The emoticon holding the stamp looks great, but the foam dripping from his mouth needs a bit of work, and i do agree with the other critique on that the orange text over the blue background is not very great, but I still thin that the idea is very original. This is a very cute addition to any stamp enthusiasts collection and I favorited it myself. Keep up the good work!
