I Judge Actions Stamp by NaMiKiTtIn I Judge Actions Stamp by NaMiKiTtIn
Thank you for all the favorites/collects and comments. I don't have time to thank everyone for the favorites/collects, but I promise to respond to every comment :D

Woohoo!! Just hit the 1000 view mark!! Thanks everyone :D.


EDIT 3 I also added this on my Tumblr (which I'm still quite new at), so if you'd like to reblog it on yours, here you go: [link]

EDIT 2 I added STYLE, since that's something that people judge based on too....If anyone has something else that's normally judged based from, let me know :D.

EDIT Ok, so I updated it to standards with the help of the critique someone was kind enough to give me :D

My first ever, completely hand-er-keyboard-made, original stamp. (For my old watchers, you remember the pony stamps and attacks that came with them). So, please forgive me if it's not the highest quality or messes up here and there :D

As for the meaning and such, I think it speaks for it's self.
It is, however, based on my signature/tag line I useon my comments :D.

Here's my new one :D :

Overall, this stamp sends a very powerful message, and it is well executed.

Color: The purple, as odd a choice as it may have been, fits this perfectly. It is the balance between red and blue, hot and cold, passive and aggressive. The purple conveys the message that while the person is being passive about their choice (blue) they strongly and even aggressively support it (red). This particular shade of purple is right smack in between, a very good balance. The use of white for the letters is good: if it were to be orange, that would stand out too much. In fact, with the purple gradient, any other color would be too radiant (lol that rhymed :XD:). The gradient itself is a good touch, adds depth and interest that solid color would lack. The direction of the gradient suits the stamp and its message well; truth from the 'ground up', sort of as if the truth were light, and it shines from below so nothing can be hidden (that's my interpretation. You have to go pretty deep to see that far, though. It also looks nice ;)).

Letters and transition:
"I will JUDGE based on how I, and others, are treated" : The emphasis on 'judge' is well done. The letters are not too much to push out the 'I will" and 'based on'. The size of the text is also good, it is not too big to be obtrusive, and not too small to be difficult to interpret.
"I will never JUDGE based on" : My comment remains the same for this as for the previous set of letters, with one exception. I would have capitalized NEVER instead of JUDGE, or capitalize and emphasize them both. If there is too much emphasis on JUDGE, it could be interpreted slightly wrong, like the 'never' is not important enough. The JUDGE from the previous set of letters still lingers in your mind, so when it transitions to NEVER, then you will keep in your mind that you DON'T judge based on those following enumerated things.
"GENDER" : A good one to start with, it is usually the first thing that people base their judgement on. Perhaps the letters are a bit too bold? I like the font, it is neither feminine nor masculine, in fact the font you chose is all like that. Very good selection. Maybe make the word GENDER a tad bit smaller, for it lingers at the edges a bit too much, and you have to 'sit back' a bit to see it in whole. Still, it gets the message across, and is a good topic for first point.

"Sexuality, body size, religion, skin color, region of origin": These are all point topics of discrimination, and generally in the correct order for the USA and parts of Europe. In other countries, it may be different, but here, it is perfect and makes sense. SEXUALITY is maybe a bit too thin, and stretches to the edges, like it is worn out. On the other hand, this could be a good thing, for the topic of your sexuality is worn out and silly in my opinion, I mean, who cares? It is your choice. So, for sexuality, it could be good or bad. All the other letters are fine, I see no problems. They are just perfect ;P

Transitions between letters:
This might be the thing that bothered me the most. It could be just me, but still. When you are enumerating the list of qualities, it is difficult to see them, for they merge and case with the words before and after them, and don't linger for long enough. How I would fix this: Emphasize the pauses a bit more, and shorten the time in between the word transitions, and let the words linger for perhaps half a second longer. Emphasis is key. This stamp is catching onto it, nearly got it just spotless. But not yet mastered. If transition and emphasis is mastered, this stamp would be exquisite!

Positives: Excellent font choice, very strong message that is well executed, good color choice for background, good color choice for words.

Cons: Maybe some words are a bit too bold, large, or thin? Transitions are a tad too quick, and *sidenote* maybe make the gradient's darker color a bit smoother, reach down a bit farther.

Summary: Excellents stamp, errors are hard to notice, though words are difficult to read at some points. Excellent color choice, strong message, well executed. 8.9/10

I love this! This is exactly what I do anyways, though. People will tell me 'Your being judged.' I say "You can't judge a book by it's cover, you have to read the book first." Oooo, that could be a stamp

Agreed. The one that I've been pointing out a lot lately is body size... I don't get how weight started being considered as a factor when judging physical beauty. I personally have seen gorgeous women who were skinny, gorgeous women who were average sized, and gorgeous women who were beyond the public's standard for a "beautiful" woman to be.

It's true. I refuse to judge a person based on pretty much everything you have in your stamp (though, if someone is wearing something that they clearly shouldn't be, I have a hard time not telling them that they should go home and change or go shopping for new clothes). If people did this, then the world would be a far better place.

The style thing was more for, you know, people who dress punkish or prepish, doesn't mean they're evil or anything. Or women who wear hijabs or head scarfs. :D Eh, you get the point XD.

I love the message behind your stamp but if the style was more for who dress punkish or prepish but not for "those people who clearly have no idea what style means" like someone said(the below commenter), then your stamp is pretty contradictory.

Oh, I have no problem with people who have different styles of dress. Just those people who clearly have no idea what style means, such as a woman who wears a skirt that leaves almost nothing to the imagination or a guy who wears one of those bum bag things strapped to his chest...can't stand that... :-p

Well, you just called me "shallow, narrow minded and petty", but we'll get to that in a moment.

I know for a fact that I am not Dr Style. I know some of the conventions regarding colour co-ordination, how to wear a tie, how pants should fit etc, but I am not Anna Wintour. This being said, I have been requested by my friends to go shopping with them on more than one occasion to help them find new clothes as I have a good idea as to what clothes/colour suit them.

I am well aware that many stylists get their inspiration from "common" people, I believe the recent trend towards hipster clothing is a prime example.

I won’t deny that I can’t stand the way some people dress, though this is mainly when I see them wearing track pants, the infamous sandals and socks combination and jeggings that have floral prints. In my original comment, I also gave two examples: the women who wear dresses that show the curve of their bottom (and may well display any underwear they are wearing) and men who insist on wearing bum bags around their chest. The reason for my judgement is because the clothes they are wearing, as far as I can tell, do nothing to flatter them or express who they are, not because I dislike the clothes.

I would also appreciate it if your comments were a rebuttal to my comment, rather than insulting me personally, as it is both rude and does nothing to add to your argument. You do not the faintest idea who I am, so grouping me together with “shallow, narrow minded and petty people” is beyond laughable, it is ridiculous. I also disagree that the world will become a better place when people stop picking on harmless people. I believe it will become a better place when people talk with one another with an open mind a goal of improving the world, which will result in people no longer picking on harmless people.

(The reason I've had to to put this as a reply to my comment is because I believe I have been blocked by HelloTerrestrials from responding to his/her comment)

:iconfacepalmextremeplz: You said: "Oh, I have no problem with people who have different styles of dress. Just those people who clearly have no idea what style means"

You're basically saying that you have no problem with people having different styles since they please you. Because let's face it, no one has the right to tell others what to wear and what style really is is something subjetive, don't think you are Dr Style because you are not. Did you know some stylists get inspiration from "commom" people they see in the streets?

You can't stand the way certain people dress? Well, deal with it, it's up to them to decide what to wear not to you. And seriously, "If people did this, then the world would be a far better place."? Please, grow up and wake up because the world is going to be a better place when shallow, narrow minded and petty people like you start facing themselves instead of running away of their problems by picking harmeless people that are only living their lives in peace.
