Aloha Folks, :clint:
here I present you my latest piece of s#!t.
Took me almost 2 friggin’ weeks to create it. :psyboom:
Before you ask: No, I’m not, nor have I ever been on the hawaiian Islands.
I’d love to show you just one simple picture for comparement but this is impossible due to the reasons, why and how I made it, a constant change of ideas through the whole process.:sweatdrop:
Instead, I’ll show you the pictures, that I used and will explain, what I did with 'em.
**Only read it, if you're interested in my motivations for creation and the process:**
At first I only wanted to create the Beach as a Scenebuild. Loaded up a Map with an empty beach and started posing palms and other foilage “randomly”. I saved it and made a couple of screenshots to test first editings with Paint.NET.
The original map–>Scenebuild
First Edits looked quite promising for me but I disliked the run of the beach and this empty space.
So I cutted away a good portion of it and it didn’t took me long to realise, that the new shape kind of resembled a postcard.
New Idea was born.
I also intended to pose a girl in the picture in the first place but for some reason my savegame got f#@ked up.
I didn’t want to pose the whole beach scene again because It’d never look as good as the first one.
Instead, I posed her infront of a “green-screen” on the same map (to get the same sources of light.)
After that, isolated her in Paint.NET,which was one pain in the ass :commissar: (I need to learn using GIMP.) and did the usual fixes. (remove sharp corners, smoothing out limbs, proportions, etc.)
Are you still readin’ this ? Awesome, Dude.
The fact, that she was nude was a problem since we all know how FPs policy is with nudity. (Except a few idiots. :buddy:)
"SPmT" was out of the question and so I started drawing her a bikini.
First one was made completly by hand and although it already looked good, I drew a second one with the help of a bikini model.
Gave it a few shadows and textured it, so it at least pretends to be actual worn by her and not just being a terrible inkspot on her.
Finally, I extended the whole picture by copying the left part several times, re-drew the beach, waves and sky by hand.
[/release]… and that pretty much is how I made basic set-up the postcard.
So, what do you people think of this piece of s#!t ?
Post all of your, comments and critisism. I worked quite a long time on it, so I kind of lost the view on the whole picture and I’d be nice to her your thoughts on it. :allears:
Thank you very much and enjoy :love:
One final word
I kind of realise now, that Santz had a good point. I do this kind of crap waaaaaaay too often. :rolleyes:
So here’s a promise:
Whatever the hell I’ll produce next, it’s going to be completly free of any female persons in any way what so ever.
