Well, about damn time I did this. A compilation thread of my own. I’m so fucking proud of myself it’s unbelievable. So… I’m going to post the pictures I’ve made with the thread link and with some comment below. (Pictures are in chronological order)
Original pictures in each thread.
Fucking generic right there. From the name, to the shitty angle, to the washed out colors. First ever attempt to make snow in Photoshop.
I am actually pretty proud of this one. This is when I learned that using the Dodge/Burn tool can lead to some pretty cool shit. And that shadows in Source have jagged edges. And that clocks float. There is some re-texturing on the guy too.
“Peace with your destiny”
First attempt at rain and at turning day into night. Also my first ever attempt to draw flowing blood. With a mouse. Turned out “kind of” well.
“War isn’t an easy thing”
First WWII pose. I wanted to keep it simple, but I decided to try out some new shit and in the process forgot to add Depth of Field. This is when I first tried to make cloth in Photoshop. I love you Dodge/Burn. Some re-texturing is evident on the gravestones. Also, TF2 styled bullet holes.
“I’m the Night Prowler”
Named after the song. Not proud with this at all. I was really inspired into making something like this, but I expected better results. Day to night, anyone?
“dm_runoff0004” a.k.a. “I’m an artistic whore - I’ll make everything B&W except one thing”
Some heavy editing right here. It’s pretty old, but I posted it not so long ago. I don’t like it too much, but everybody else does. Weird, huh?
“dm_steamlab0020” a.k.a. “Alyx’s late-night shift”
Playing around with lightning. Also, what’s with the map-thread names, huh? Nothing too special. Pretty bland and boring, actually.
“Cross the Line”
I actually like the result here. First attempt at using lamps actively in a scene. Shadows are cool and jagged.
“Shake your foundations”
Yeah, I like AC/DC. I learned what an anamorphic lens flare is. First “pose” with Mass Effect 2 models.
Comments, questions, rating. Do it please - it makes me feel special.
