So I'm going to make a bunch of item parts (like handels, shafts, bindings, blades, and other pieces/shapes) that you "members of the community" can use/combine to make whatever weapon/item you want/can think of.

(of course feel free to modify, add to, or create/mix & match your own. also feel free to make parts and share them with the rest of us 'I only ask that you keep within the size/pixel resolution of the other items' in other words: Please don't make your items too big or too small)

I figure the only/best format for this will be .PNG and we will want to use a pixel resolution that wont need to be resized to fit on the forums.

Try [GIMP] if you need a 'free' program

Tutorials FTW!
GIMP Tutorial: How to Make Pictures Transparent

GIMP Tutorial: Layers Layers=Awesome!

GIMP Tutorial: Image rotation

or: [Firealpaca]

Example: QAoFTJy.png

and as a reference for scale:

this is just for an example of scale, if your seed is 8 feet tall and you want items to his scale that's ok too. of course the opposite is ok as well "say your seed is petite and only 3 1/2 feet tall" just nothing bigger or smaller "Use common sense/your better judgment"
Examples of other 'Seed' body types/Sizes:

    My two favourite image editing programs:

    GIMP

    PAINT.NET
  • VisigothVisigoth REGISTERED Posts: 268
    can those handle transparent images?

    They definitely can! With Paint.net I have installed a different plugin for this because the basic features are a bit limited in that regard, but GIMP would be the way to go for transparency. :mrgreen:

    Cool,
    I'll be working on this when I have free time, I plan on updating with new stuff "whenever I have new parts, or others add good ones"

    I'll probably start with knapped Obsidian blades, wood shafts/handles and some sort of wrapping like 'leather or fiber' (like the sword in my Sig) or even earlier "like rough stone"

    then later I'll move on to more advanced materials like copper/bronze, Iron, Damascus(steel/iron alloy), steel, "Crazy TUG" Crystal, "Arcane" imbued alloys etc...

    I might even give it a go, and I'm really not that great at art. That's just what this game makes me want to do. :mrgreen:

    I wanted to do something like this, I kept toying with the idea of doing something similar to Gaia, and making a bunch of hair-dos, facial expressions and clothes along with a male and female body sprite. But I'm lazy, and my CS5 trial has 6 days left. I could tediously do it all on Paint.net :o
    That's a really cool shirt you have on.
  • VisigothVisigoth REGISTERED Posts: 268
    does gimp allow for "layers" like PS? and can you rotate images?
    it just dawned on me if you can't at least rotate pieces this will be a bit more restricted :[

  • VisigothVisigoth REGISTERED Posts: 268
    yeah, I'm relieved :] I didn't want to design everything so it could match up on a single plain -_- that would be too much work/ and or very limiting.

    Wasn't there a free version of Photoshop CS2 kicking around on the internet? I remember someone mentioning that on the old forum.

    Hm, maybe I can one day, when I'm REAL bored, draw something... like a staff-mace with a spear tip. If I actually draw it, I'll post it there!

    I don't know. I would have to do it all in paint.net if I really wanted too. Maybe someday :p

    Check out the OP, GIMP and Firealpaca look good/promising.

    a quick example for any/everyone of what can be done with the already available parts (and the most important tool "Imagination"!):
    aXWmiuc.png
    just using 'Layers' 'Rotation' 'Copies' and the 'Eraser' to clear that hole of the underlying blade piece. all in all maybe 2minuts max.

    Must... DRAW... AGH! there I go...

    Magic!
    http://i.imgur.com/81wUVYv.jpg
    Try and find the drawing, this is just how the scanner left it like.
    The idea is that this is the mace I talk so much about. The pole is a bit too thick for my likes, and then the mace head is a bit of a mess, and only two of the edges are shown, but in the reality it should be a ring of like 6 edges. yes, that's a spear tip at the end.
    There should be a crystal in middle of the mace head.
    I think it depicts my concept of the carvings, and a bit of the handle too. Well, I just love polearms.

    I played around with the tool pieces that you've created thus far and came up with this. It's basically just an axe. Added a purple glow onto it because i like to think that player's weapons somehow could have an energy connection with their gems that allow for weapons to be "Charged" by the player's "Energies" er something of that nature possibly. Anyways, here is an axe, and a dude holding the axe. Thanks for the images you provided.
    Hope you like it. I'll try to make more later on.

    Also would it be alright if i added this to my weapons section on my page?

    Sure, go for it I don't mind (if you want to, socket in a link back to this thread "so others can make something" that would be cool)
    neat Axe btw :]
