    quickie...

    the pentalpha represents the five wounds of christ, as well as the eastern star, and has been misinterpreted by satanism in the last century because of Eliphas Levi's drawing of Baphomet, the goat headed demon of lust, within the star.

    It's a holy symbol, and not an unholy one, and turning this symbol upside down doesnt dismiss the fact that it's still a 5 pointed star.

    That's why i'm a little disappointed in Id software for not doing their homework and just going with a stereotype.

    meh, anyway, thought i'd give a little chunk of info there.

    Hi!
    My first time in DSG. *excitement!*

    As I understand it, bashing oneself is deemed inappropriate in the DSG. So, I'll just let this image speak for itself...

    DSG 315: Environment: Heaven's gate

    I hope it doesn't come out too dark. I just reinstalled my crappy system, and the settings might still be off...

    Thumbs up

    Fun topic...

    Agrajag - It looks great on my system, dark but clear.

    evisr8r - Id's not the only one. I'd never heard that before today. In fact before I read your post the first thought in my head was 'why demonic?'

    Might try adding more reflective light on the surrounding hills for a start. ;-) The door looks good.

    I think you have to paste the link in your browser for the picture to work ... sorry but I can't pay for a host. Anyways, I had the same idea as Agrajag, but I like what agrajag did with it.

    Face me...

    I hate drawing clouds, but I got saved by the brightness of this one. Allowed me to conceal much of the bad stuff.
    DSG 315: Environment: Heaven's gate

    Toaster, that's really cool.

    one gripe though: She has just shot the person, but the gun is already smoking like it has been idle for seconds. I would replace the smoke with a muzzle flash to make it better.

    Probably =P
    I don't know a damn thing about guns and what they look like... I pulled up a Desert Eagle image quickly to even get the shape of that gun to look remotely believable.

    As for how they act when they fire... its greek to me. Thanks for the advice.

    Actually Railboy, I did use that one. I used the bottom one. I still can't do it right. I think I am cloud retarded:bash: .

    I found this other one that was better, and actually worked for me, but I lost the link .

    Dfacto- that looks nice, but the figure at the bottom could give a stronger impact.. maybe just work the shilouette of the person a bit more, and make it more expressive?


    this is heavens back gate, and it is being stormed

    Thats quite awesome Hunger Artist.

    But the Angel on the right doesn't really seem to be in fear... not happy but also not scared.

    aside from trying to convey a gate that hasn't been used in a while, I was really just playing with all the tools in Painter
