Re: The Spirit Of Disaster (Competition 2012)

I got that reference easy enough... curse you my crazy Georgian/Regency/Victorian/Edwardian fanatic bone . It's during the time when fox hunting was considered a sport. *shiver* Haha, actually, I had in mind something very much earlier - the story in Jewish history of Samson who exacted a very crea...

Re: The Spirit Of Disaster (Competition 2012)

Also, "scrambling like flaming foxes" is the best simile ever. The only thing that would have made me laugh harder at reading it would be if they were flaming squirrels. You might not laugh if you knew the story behind the reference, lol. (It was kind of an ancient case of cruelty to animals...) I ...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

My boyfriend is like that! Which sucks, since he loves cats and is very allergic to them. How allergic? I'm highly allergic to cats...though probably not to the same thing as him but so far I've coped living with a cat quite good. Though that means I'm a crazy about vacuuming and brushing the cat's...

Re: The Spirit Of Disaster (Competition 2012)

Ordinarily I would have been very hesitant to accept a fanfic-style work in a contest with cash prizes, but in this case I actually looked up some of his views on fanfic and competitions and decided Gaiman would probably be fine with it. :) (There's a relevant blog post somewhere on the subject.)

Re: What would you do....

reminds me of a novel but it's the heroine's then dead boyfriend instead of family. Depends on how long ago the person has been dead. since time heals, seeing a person who looks exactly like someone close who died a few years down the line would not trigger a mega emotional feeling for me. More like...

Re: General art questions

That's a good checklist. Particular the focal length of the "camera lens" you're employing. Film artists that do a lot of plate work can start to recognize the focal length of the lens used on sight. It can really add dramatic impact to an image when used properly. Photographer's consider a 50mm le...

Re: General art questions

The same with legs. I usually just look for reference, but if you have problems understanding legs, I suggest you study the anatomy of the legs and start making "studies", just like one does with hands, for example. Same with torsos :) Here I found some resources for you about legs that you may fin...

Re: General art questions

Unless you need over 4GB RAM for your painting, you don't need later versions. They are just slower Photoshop without good GPU. CS2 can use 4GB (in 64 bit OS. 3GB in 32 bit) and you barely need more RAM. Sure CS5 has better painting tools than CS2, but they are still not good comparing to other pai...

Re: CGs and How they Work In The Story: Tips?

empty backgrounds work just as well as CGs to set a scene. so think it as... How big is the impact? Is it character related? Or can I describe it with just a BG? well technically that's the questions I ask so far to make sure in my VN is not gonna have a lot of CGs. Not too sure of my CGing skills y...
