Blue 2 Painting

Post by :FI:Noter » Tue May 01, 2007 7:30 pm

Switching gears for a second, instead of coming up with scenarios, I'm using what we've been doing in game. Did one for Blue and his six kill session, also took some ideas from screenshotart posts for the frameing.

Now this sure beats a silly medal, well unless you hung the medal to the side of this wonderful picture. ;)

So I wonder when other H.E. guys do something amazing if they will be awarded a picture like this? :-$

TS!

WOOOOOOOOOOW !!!!

:shock: :beg:
This goes up as wallpaper immediately! Then I gotta figure out how to make it into an actual wall-sized print, & hang it in my living room. If I do it right, it could feed my ego for years! :lol:

Seriously Matt, that is gorgeous. I can't fully appreciate what it takes to do something like this, but from everyone's comments here & previously I know it's no simple task. Seems like you have quite a gift here. We're really fortunate to have all the artists in the squad! \:D/

NICE work! ^:) ^:) ^:)

Outdone yourself again, Matthew! ^:) :beer:

As for TacticalS's suggestion...one of your efforts is definitely better than a silly ol' medal!


Great woek, Matthew...and keep the "prop thing" a secret from Flacon! :lol:
Maybe you missed it, but there's a whole new "Now", now. :?

Thanks for the great response, glad y'all like it.

Posted it in Ubi forums.

The prop and motion blur are both Photoshop, and both are lots of trial and error. The props I've gotten better at, the motion blur takes on a personal preference the more you mess with it.

I can ftp you the layered props Falcon and you can have a go with a painting too. It's just a radial blur, I would have thunk PSP had a similar option.
