Tom, Tom Tom; I miss good posts like this. Thanks a lot. Edges are something that is really killing me these days when I do design work. For my illustration stuff I tend to be ok, but when i do designs stuff. The first thing that dissapears from brain is 'edges', don't know why. but everything gets sharpened the fuck up. Haha. Thanks buddy. I really should have a massive poster above my monitor with a list like that, I get the feeling it would be about 200 things long though
Meps; Clean linework is kind of built into me, im a bit OCD. You just have to be considerate, use sharp brushes, and always try to hit things with 1 line, no 'scratching' kind of lines. Also yes I used a photo, and just painted straight onto it to integrate it and make it fit more. Which is the answer to the next bit, I didn't paint it down enough, so that the photodetail makes it stronger than the architecture. Stupid me.
Marian; Thanks! I am also looking forward to that, I just need to find time/force myself to get into that. See my thoughts below .
Wow, I really took my time with this one also. Sorry guys.
This from my blog; (Copy and pasting is like synergy, maximising my efficiency, or some shit )
Man, I am really in the mood to be doing some of my own stuff. I've been absolutely sci-fi design crazy the last few months, but don't find time to actually do anything with it. I won't be complaining though, because I think I would much rather have work to be doing and making a living. This is all that's come out of Underverse at the moment, but things are moving forward - going to have playable builds soon and that means there is work that can be shown (maybe ). Just started some more steampunk commissions too, so expect some of that very soon. I've been pretty busy actually, its just all stuff I'm not allowed to show. I'll give you a hint, Ive sold out; Hollywood and Advertising.
A dude with a hammer, and then some guns and a space suit. FML, am I really that boring?
