Multiple edits. (And some screenshot questions)

Hello there.
I’m new to the forums, I couldn’t find a “Introduce yourself” thread in the minute I looked for it, so hi.
(Warm welcome, please?)

Anyway, I don’t want to get too off topic here. I’m very new to the idea of using a game to produce purty looking pictures, so bare with me.

An example:

Feel free to unload any critique.

And some questions that will further more destroy my reputation:

How can you use “manual focus” in gmod?

Do you really have to use all of the slider bars under face poser each time, or is there a more simplistic alternative?

How do you use tools in smaller boxes in comparison to bringing up the menu?

I’ve already checked out the tutorial thread, but are there any specific ones I should read up on?

Why is there random snow dots on the top of the picture?

It looks like the Hunter is spitting out Magic. :stuck_out_tongue:

You might want to remove the lenses flare. It’s sort of distracting

Sorry, i’m a fan of flares. :stuck_out_tongue:

And actually, those “Snow dots” were in the original picture, along with the pulse blast.
I didn’t like them either.

EDIT: Reply button fail.

So… you added lens flares?

I don’t see anything wrong with the picture other than that it could use a better camera angle.

See.

Needs more lens flare.

Well, atleast it didn’t look like gmod.

To use tools in smaller boxes compared to the Q menu, select the tool, press and hold on C.
You do not need to use all of the sliders in the face poser menu, just play around with the ones that you think you will need for the picture.
Also, try not to use lens flare because it gets in the viewer’s eye and doesn’t look good.
Your picture there looks great apart from the lens flare, and welcome to facepunch :keke:

Fixed.

Looks a lot better now.

No sarcasm here.
