Finally starting the competition

Posted by Moikle on Oct. 12, 2011, 2:44 p.m.

Hey guys, I am finally starting my scary four digits entry. I know, I am very late, but between the coursework, and stress, and lack of inspiration, it took me a long time to get started. However, I have an idea now, and I have made my first sprite :D

Shortblog blablabla.


I have finished the work I had to do for tonight, and now I can finish this entry.

I improved the skull sprite I made:

The teeth are larger (thanks orange for pointing that out.) the shading is improved, and the cheekbones are no longer black

And in this one, I put flames on it… just because.

I just got a Hoya R72 infrared filter for my Lumix G1 camera, it is awesome. If anyone wants to know about infrared photography (and I highly recommend that you do) click this link.

Here are my attempts at it so far:

They don’t look nearly as good as the ones in the link because I haven’t quite worked out how to white balance them correctly yet, but I’ll get there.

I don’t think I have posted about photography here before, and I was wondering if any of you were interested in it?

The teeth aren't big enough, methinks! :0 (otherwise pretty nice…)

Yeah, I see that now, I was rushing it because I had to finish up some coursework for tonight. That is also the reason this blog is so short.

Also the cheekbones are too dark

Give me a minute and I will extend it.

Nice. And don't feel too bad, I haven't done terribly much for my entry either.

I don't like being pushed off the RA feed.

I havent started yet for various reasons. But i will do it for sure.

man, being able to sprite makes game making so much better… my sprites will probably be very basic, as in one maybe 2 colors hahaha

edit: Infrared pictures look like a video game setting or something. I like

Nice pictures brodude. Like the flames too.

Thanks a lot. I am trying to adjust the white balance on my photos, but i can only do that if the image is in a raw format. however, my camera takes .RW2's which I need to convert into .RAW's somehow in order to open in Photoshop.

sorry >_< I was lazy

all fixed now

I just dumped them in dropbox as they were.

My camera can take .jpgs and.RW2 files, but saving things as .png after editing is kinda automatic for me.
