I never upload any photos into Facebook so I thought that I could start putting some of my pixel art there. But the problem is that Facebook automatically compresses and resizes images so that even if I were to save an image as a high-quality JPEG in Photoshop, it would show up in a different size and full of compressiong artifacts. -Which would be really bad for limited pallette PNG images where the main point is that pixels appear crisp and clear in their original form. Is there any optimized workflow for uploading images to Facebook with minimal resampling and compression artifacts?

Finally got around to updating my profile picture. I've been struggling with inspiration with drawing because I'm constantly doing 3d-modeling at work, but it suddenly struck. I loaned a Wacom Intuos from work and got this done. I probably should buy one for myself since my Bamboo is dead and gone.

Steelballer by Plutonia-V41
Steelballer
I've been playing Duke Nukem 3d and I wanted to do some 3d stuff. The Desert Eeagle is one of the harder weapons to model so I wanted a challenge. This is basically my version of a gun seen in some old poster for Duke Nukem forever before that version of the game was cancelled. Functionally it's the same weapon as the one in Duke3d. Automatic with a 16-round magazine. Though I doubt it was 50 cal. But If there's one caliber that Duke would shoot, it would be 50 cal.

Made With Luxology Modo 601. 11781 Polygons.

MS Paint - Flatlander Woman by Plutonia-V41
MS Paint - Flatlander Woman
You know, the hardest part about this picture was redesigning the so-called "assault rifle" in Deus Ex so that it makes sense. It still pretty much doesn't, but at least it has a folding stock.

Anyway, this is Anna Navarre from Deus Ex. "Flatlander Woman" is another name that only makes sense if you play through the game. I tried to recreate her appearance to be as close to the way she appears in the original game, while also trying to keep in mind what the mechanical augmentations looked like in Deus Ex Human Revolution in the year 2027, and tried to make it fit the year 2052. Yeah it isn't exactly easy. I wonder if the original artists of Deus Ex made the mechanically augmented people look intentionally primitive to make it clearer how obsolete they are compared to nanotech cyborgs, because in HR the mech-augs look much more advanced.

MS Paint - Father Karras by Plutonia-V41
MS Paint - Father Karras
This is Father Karras of the Mechanist Order, the antagonist of Thief 2: The Metal Age. I recently noticed that rather than wearing a normal mechanist priest's outfit, Karras has this steam-powered exoskeleton attached to his torso and arms, that looks like a huge creepy brass spider that is latched onto his body.

It took me about a month to get started on this and about 3 days to finish it. I guess that's what you call "lack of motivation"? Oh, and my drawing tablet works again. Almost. I had to disable all of the buttons because they have been jammed in a state that they are constantly being pressed. That's what coffee with milk and sugar does to electronics.

As I've said before, with character sketches I always focus entirely on the character and just can't be bothered with the background. So I threw together some gears with a 3d modeling program instead of doing it with Paint.

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.
