I hardly ever got a kick off medal, I think I have only one or two of it at all. This lunchtime refers definately to the kick off medal. This time I took a photo of the first guiding lines, to show you how I constructed the Picture.
I am really not used to draw moved characters. It is kinda funny that it goes off my hand so well since I have played Uncharted 3. There are still some mistakes in the picture and I really have to work on drawing legs and foots 🙂 .
I kinda like this picture, dunno why. So I decided to give it color.
Hrm… no map today. Instead an other scribble. But stay tuned, soon the next map layout will be online.
The second part of was about depts and how you get the cash of customers, which are not paying the bills. It was kinda interesting, but I was such in a run of drawing, I did another scribble. Unfortunately I messed up the legs pretty much, they are too small, and kinda sticky and not really in the flow of the picture. Well it is just a scribble.
Yeah i got bored again in school. As inspiration the picture i used for the clan tag came to my mind.
When in comes down boring school hours, I really have a tend to start drawing. You know these are hours, you wish they would pass really fast and which turn out to be the longest you have been on. So you have two options. Either concentrate on the topic, try to go with the question-answer-game of the teachers… oooorrr… doing something else. I usually start to draw. Mostly symbols, because they are easy and you don’t have to think a lot about it. Rarely little cartoons of whatever came to my mind. But sometimes I give it a go and try to scribble. This picture I started without even knowing what I want to draw, ending up with an Uncharted Picture. It doesn’t look really good. Well it is only about 5cm big.
Yeah it says really: “Shut up, let me go home playing Uncharted.” 🙂
This is the fourt Map, the Lost City of Uncharted 3. Actually it was a pretty easy one, because a loth of parts you can “mirror” to the opposite side. I tried to show the different layers with the colors. I know there is a bigger way underneath and I really have to think about how to continue on Sanctuary, Fort and especially Highrise. Well we will see how it turns out.
This time I folded the paper instead of drawing fine middle lines. It helped much, because the foldlines were more accurate than my drawed lines. The first light scribble I did by hand, but after, when it came down to a more detailed and worked out version I chose a ruler to get clean lines. The inking I did again only by hand, without a ruler, because it would look awkward, when some lines are drawn by hand and some with the help of a ruler.
The last step is again the colouring. It is pretty much the same as in my last description. The only special thing here was to do a gradient on the stairs to show the change between the layers.
For the Google+ Account of our Clan, I did a fast Avatar, which links Uncharted 3 and our Clan Sign in a cool way. First of all I searched for a great screenshot. I thought of three thins, that should be shown. A character, the uncharted logo and of course the Tactical Gaming Logo. First I searched for a Screenshot of a character in Front of a wall showing the emblem, but since the size of an Avatar is somehow limited my second thought was to use either a custom hero with the emblem on the shirt or a villain. Since I only found a picture with the villain, wich shows a great move as well, I decided to use this as template.
The lights on this picture were great as well, since the google+ Background is white it will gives a good effect to the pic, without doing me a lot of work. I loaded this picture into gimp and set a new layer. Then I used the free selection tool to cut out the character and copy him into the new layer.
As you can see, the ND paw is not what I would like to have, so I copied just this part into a second layer and removed / adjusted the colors. Since the paw is just red color, without any lines it es easier to remove the color first. After that you can add the color you want again, fitting it to the rest of the shirt.
There are some little Marks left, but we gonna place a logo on top of it, it isnt such a big deal. After I merged the layers together it looks like this:
Now I copied the TG Logo on a new Layer into this file. As you can see, the original Logo is way to big, so I adjusted the sice, turned it a litte and merged the sides to get the right view of it for a Shirt Emblem.
Since the color is really offensive and Dark compared with the rest of the character, I copied the Logo again in an other layer and adjusted it with the latency, brightness and transparency. Finally it looks like it belongs to the shirt. It was a pretty fast work, so it could be done much better with a little more time and patience.
