MS Paint - Nothing but Flames by Plutonia-V41
MS Paint - Nothing but Flames
Last week someone posted an earlier picture of a Hammerite Haunt that I had made, on a forum thread discussing the Thief games, and I promised that I would make a new, improved version of the picture. So I did. I almost finished drawing the character today, with just some detailing on the sword missing, and just a few hours after that, I spilled coffee on my Wacom tablet, which then stopped functioning. :cries: The little blue light faded and I'm afraid that she won't recover. :( Then I quickly threw together a basic background with Photoshop using the mouse which I have completely forgotten how to use in drawing. Just my luck that when I'm getting back into Paint, my tools break down.

And holy crap, metal chains are difficult to draw. In the old haunt drawing of mine I forgot to add the chains, and I only remembered after I had submitted the piece. You can't see any chains in the haunts that are in the games, but where does the rattling sound come from then? And if you're wondering why someone who is basically just a skeleton with clothes on looks so buff, it's because the flesh has rotted away a long time ago, but the ghost still thinks it's there.

MS Paint - Shadows of Dunwall by Plutonia-V41
MS Paint - Shadows of Dunwall
I thought I'd be a lot more rusty considering how rarely I use Paint these days. Apparently I'm still up for it. Aren't I? :)

These are the two protagonists of Arkane's stealth game Dishonored. The Royal Protector Corvo Attano, and the master assassin known as Daud. Both are marked by the strange otherworldly entity known as the Outsider, and the mark has given them certain magical abilities.

I based their designs on their appearances in the game, but I based these less stylized and more "realistic" appearances on two actors. Jude Law and Scott Glenn.

I still can't figure out what to write here! Help mee
Interests
...Power has shifted. New greed replaces the old.

I've been stuck for a long time between trying to convince myself that my thesis is going to get finished by september, and trying avoid getting an aneurysm from reading about how many things Eidos Montréal is going to fuck up in Thief 4.

Seriously. It really is starting to look like in certain aspects the studio is doing exactly the opposite of what people have been asking for during the last decade, and all the other news we get seem to indicate that they never wanted to make a Thief game in the first place but were forced to use that intellectual property. So no matter what, they want their own ideas implemented, even if it clashes directly with the IP they are supposed to model their product after.

But complaining about a game is not why I'm here. I can do the complaining in the forums.

...Actually I can't since I was banned from there due to making convincing arguments in public about the lack of impartiality by the official moderators who were giving unsurprisingly positive hands-on impressions of a...

-NO! That's not why I'm here.I'm here to share something really amazing. :lol:

Take a look at this animated artwork. I have never seen anything like it. From what I can piece together, they use an 8-bit color pallette, where certain ranges of colors are made to cycle so that those particular colors smoothy change in the picture. One of the most insane versions of it is the forest snowfall, where the paths of the snowflakes are traced with the cycling colors of the pallette seamlessly in the bark of the trees and the background.

I also apologize for the lack of artwork. I just feel like if I start something and then take a break to do my thesis, I can't pick up a piece of artwork again. So why bother even starting? :(

...Also, what is the logic behind making "The Last of Us" a PS3 exclusive this late in the console's lifespan? They're certainly not selling new consoles with the game, and they are certainly cutting into their own profits by not giving players of other platforms access to the game. It's insane. It's like they don't want money.

Thanks. The XP version of Paint is a versatile tool for a singular distinct style. It isn't suitable for everything, but the things it can do can produce really cool results that basically can't be replicated with any other program.

The Windows 7 version however... that program actually is as bad as people think it is. :D

Haha! :lol: You know, it isn't any easier for males to draw male bodies, because with both genders you basically have to use other people as reference. ...Or draw in front of a mirror, which sounds a little crazy.

And by the way, I'm not that good at anatomy. Feet and hands are ridiculously hard to draw and I just can't get the hang of it. I always end up looking at photos and using them as direct reference because even though I have two hands in front of me, I can't seem to be able to figure out how exactly they are drawn from an outside perspective.
