    Your 3D stuff is looking more and more excellent all the time. And those are some whiz bang wallpapers as well.

    You should make some Sword Dog wallpapers in that style for the world to enjoy.

    On drawing?

    I am still chewing on the last bite of advice I took. I haven't been able to draw lately because of the sudden violent upheaval with my housing situation, but I should have more things to look at up soon.

    Wow, that is exactly what my government has been working on.. can't let this get out!

    Very nice, are you french? Just a nitpick since the french sentence doesn't really make sense gramatically and whatnot but great nonetheless.

    "La force de nos ouvriers assure la victoire." Or maybe "La force des ouvriers assure la victoire" Depending on what you meant to say... :D

    First one would be Our workers strength assures victory while the second is: The workers strentgh assures victory...

    SULFURAS. FURY OF RAGNAROS

    That's a neat hammer. My only problem with it is I feel like it would snap in half if someone was holding it from the handle. Is it possible for you to make the handle a little sturdier, or at least longer to balance out the obvious weight of the hammer?

    Also perhaps the "lava cracks" (for lack of a better term) on the hammer shouldn't be so symmetrical. Is the hammer made from lava, or made to look like lava? If it were from lava i don't think it would be the same on all sides.

    useless but necessary objects of society.
  • PROXPROX Registered User regular

    Thanks for the comment Crowlestone. The symmetrical design is due to optimizing texture space and time. If it were asymmetrical it would take twice as long to make. I want to make the lava cracks as runic as possible, to show that there was some sort of magic, or artificial element introduced. I didnt think it would be that distracting. I wonder if it would have been better to flip horizontal then vertical.

    I agree on the handle and am going to thicken it.

  • NappuccinoNappuccino Registered User regular

    My balance sense tells me the handle should be longer. It looks like there is no way you could get enough leverage with that stubby thing.

    Thanks nap. I will lengthen it. I was going to use the "it's a magic molten hammer" excuse. But function should inform design.

    edit: i will use that excuse on the fact that you'd burn your hands on the handle because of all the lava on there.

    It doesn't really read like an axe just by it's shape, it looks very abstract. And I'd expect there to be some hot whites with y'know, lava. But I really like the how you worked the runic designs into it while still keeping it looking very lava cracky.

  • PROXPROX Registered User regular
    edited December 2009
    It's actually a hammer. But thanks for critique. I will alter the sillihoute to make it more hammer-like to communicate it's hammer-ness.

    I MEANT HAMMER. I SWEAR. But it still don't look like one. Especially cause like, with those spikes on it, it functions like a mace. Or an axe. You couldn't really hammer things with it. Honestly, I'd take atleast half of the spikes off of it, force yourself to think what you really need to make a really strong, recognizable sillihoute. Something that without even seeing the pretty lava and shit people go OH GOD THAT LOOKS BADASS I WANNA HIT THINGS WITH IT, or they recognize an enemy carrying it from a distance and go FFFFFFFFFUUUU

    The sulfuras seems like it needs a bigger counterweight on the bottom of the handle.

    I also think that maybe some kind of value shift along the length of the weapon would help make it seem less busy and maybe more of a sense of luminosity.

    Blizzard also nowadays does some subtle lighting treatment on their weapon textures to sort of "fake" bump mapping by painting in a light source coming from above if the weapon were to be held out like it's in a player's hands--Something to think about.

    A Maul might be a good term for it. I think that encompasses hammers and spikey things. Just so long as it's got a big fat end.
