What you should not do in web design

But there is actually some deeper meaning behind this. It comes with a list of mistakes that are considered a bad practice in web design:

I think it might be fun and useful to do the same thing for CG and render purposes. ;) Making a worst render ever, including all possible levels of carelessness, laziness and negligence plus all composition mistakes there are.

Probably it would take more than just one lousy render but a funny challenge though!

Haha, great! Though I'm a little afraid to browse it, because I'm afraid I'll see something that I will never unsee. ;D

While this is funny, this gallery is not quite what I meant as it's main and only goal is to poke fun at crappy "art". What I would like to see though, is a gallery that makes you laugh in the beginning but offers explanation on why is it wrong and explains what mistakes are present. Just like the list in the Worst Website Ever.

By the way, I grudgingly offer you my first ever crime... errr, I mean render that I have "committed". Of course, I can offer explanation why it is bad. ;)

I agree, but the "crappy" website brought this to mind and I had to share  :)

That site is quite old (17 years) and I hope contains some early work of people that turned into fine CG artists! We've all been there.
