Today's topic is: Environment: Heaven's gate
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.
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...
I hope it doesn't come out too dark. I just reinstalled my crappy system, and the settings might still be off...
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?'
only had 25 minutes =/

\o/ funny subject
i tried to obtain a very blinding light but i didn't succeed to.
Might try adding more reflective light on the surrounding hills for a start. ;-) The door looks good.
DODGE THE CRAP OUT OF IT!!!
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.

This was a perfect opportunity to practice starfields and clouds.
I know it said environment...
But my inspiriration lay else where.
I immediately thought of an assassin codenamed Heaven's Gate...
I hate drawing clouds, but I got saved by the brightness of this one. Allowed me to conceal much of the bad stuff.
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.
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 .
railboy,that dog's dor is funny as hell
tough topic.good is always harder to imagine than evil.:p
i wanted to make a way to it originally,but saw it wouldn't fit in properly.
funshark if ur willing to edit that to make it blinding make the person brighter definately make the whole thing white on a low oppasity and add highlights on the mountains.. cause if u want it blinding u want it facing toward the camera
kinda silly today...
Anybody else think of the OPM song "Heaven is a Halpipe?"
Anyway, here it is:
The lyrics are here: Has some "bad words" in it, but the part I'm talking about is in the begining.
