Hey everyone (and merry christmas to you all),
Finally got round to uploading this. Though it isn't great quality (I had to use a digital camera since my crappy old scanner only takes A4 paper and this was A3), but it gets the message across. Do you like it? There are other WH40K pics on my site if would like to see more.


If that don't work either, go to my CGI section on my site or use this link:

Cyas round,
Sina.

Hehe, nothing so fancy. Just an HB pacer, a 6B pencil and a kneadable rubber. Got the blurred effect by sharpening the lead and smudging it across the paper. Then smoothed it out with the pencil and added highlights (if you could call it that) with the rubber. Got an A+ for it in art though so I couldn't really ask for more. Thanks for the reply.

Oooh another reply, and here I thought people hated.
Thanks yeah I should fix the stain shouldn't I? If I had more time I guess it would've been a far more polished result, though I had to finish in class so that's a bit unfortunate. Hehe, if I was ever going to send something into White Dwarf I'd make sure the quality was at a point where they'd just have to put on the front page (in my dreams that is).
Thanks for the reply and keep em coming,
Sina.

Thanks guys! Most of those I remember had coloured front covers, they were awesome. Great for killing time and brain cells.
Anyone got a request of sorts? It's the holidays and since there's actually very little to do, another picture wouldn't be too bad.

Oh so now I'm being exploited am I? Grrrr, that really steams my egg noodles!!!!

Now I've been put in such an indecisive position (do I draw a complex image, and let myself be used, or do I refuse and look like a coward??).......oh no the walls, they're melting!!
You see, you see?? Exposure to this type of pressure is painful!

Now if you'll excuse I have some spam to deal with, hmm hentai?!? What the hell is that (click)...............oh my

see now this is why you should stay here... we don't expect anything so less pressure eh

ya know i'd love to see this coloured - you should look into putting a good few hours aside to do so (^_^)
oh and try looking about for a free hotlinkable site, cause it is kinda annoying having to constantly reload it in another brother for it to be veiwable on the page.
or ya know take all your christmas cash and splash out on hosts now they're pretty cheap - gotta love January Sales

been eyeing a new one up myself cause i'm not sure when they'll get the home system done and lycos is now officially pissin' me off
theres a uk one called 1to1 - probably a ripp from one2one but i don't care ... server prices there are some of the best i've seen

Yes Tripod only lets you link you files remotely if you upgrade to a premium account. I think I'll move over to freewebs, they give 500mb bandwidth a month, 100mb web space and allow remote linking. It's all free too. The only problem I can see with it is that any file over 1mb gets a capped download speed so all the other users have bandwidth for their site. So until I can find a free web drive service somewhere, I may have to stay with Tripod just a bit longer (I am the biggest scab I know).

It would be nice to have a coloured version, though a little difficult because of all the shading that's been done on it. I'll give it a go sometime soon,

well looks like i'll be paying out for two hosts, but i'm not sure - mean Lycos has always been good to me, one the the best world wide - unlike thier partner tripod, and as an advanced account is £9.99/month for 600mb, a domain (with countless subdomains), 500pop3 email accounts, 10gb bandwidth, infinite tranfer, Unix Apache server - seems like a pretty good deal.

i mean like £120/year for a site like that seems pretty good
i pay that now for bloody T1/month which don't damn'd well work right!

Wow that does sound like a good deal. Maybe I should transfer to lycos. Hmm I'll keep in mind.
Anyhow, I've got a half-completed colour version of the Sorcerer for you. Go to http://xenla.tripod.com and find it under the CGI section.
Hope you like it,

Hehe why thank you for the kind words.
I need to learn how to make textures such a plastic and metal....look like plastic and metal (It's all so much easier in Truespace, just set diffuse and specular etc in your shaders). I also need to look into blending colours more, oh and alph channels etc etc, the list goes on.
Thanks again.

certain textures are easi to accomplish
probably not much different in photoshop, but in paintshop - you take what you want to make plastic and firstly point-to-point select saving the selection to the alpha channel then outline it with a point-to-point white line (1pixel)
add outlines where the plastic lines are to be with another few point to point lines, i'd start with one and check out how it looks and move on. Increaseing the size because it should be slightly larger, then duplicate that vector layer making all the lines in the layer down about 1/4 the size.
Hide the top layer and then using selection, select the entire screen and the select float - finally defloat to get the selection area ... or you could use the layer panel and select each line as raster selections, but when i do that i tend to accidentially promote to raster level hehee

Now feather out the selection by about 2pixels but change to look right. Gausian Blur 10.0 ... now without changing the selection unhide the top layer and gausian blur at 4.0
(not looking too plastically but just wait)

Now you remember that selection alpha you made earlier?
Use that to select on the original picture and duplicate it hiding the original. Combine the visible layers and then goto texture -> soft plastic ... using Custom5 is a good one, then unhide your original picture and change the plastic layer to lumination.
offers a very nice effect, just go over the actual effect with a few light airbrush black strokes to add some darkness is a good effect.

probably almost identical to achieve within photo (^_^)

Ooh some home-grown wisdom from RV. Thanks! I'm copy/pasting this into a notepad document, it's certainly useful. Some things are a little different in PS (alpha channels behave differently, or maybe its just that I have to use keyboard shortcuts) but shouldn't be too hard to recreate.
I get the feeling that this effect would look nice on text, making it look all shiny and smooth.
Thanks again.
