AO & OO Blender Artwork

Postby Khaldore » Tue Oct 07, 2008 5:34 pm

As some of you know, I'm a big fan of Blender (an open-source 3D modeling/rendering program). Since I'm not able to play right now, I figured I'd render up a few images to work on my 3D art skills. At Sorhan's request, I decided to post them here.

The first image is going to be my new AO load screen. I haven't quite figured out what resolution to use to avoid the image stretching to fit my screen (I've tried matching my screen res, and it still distorts), so I left it the same size as the original load screen. The purple highlighting came out a bit stronger than I wanted, but I think the overall result is okay.

The second image (not attached below, for obvious reasons) is what became my avatar here. I rendered it five times larger than it currently is, then resampled it downward to 80x80, to keep as much detail as possible.

The third image is my take on our Obsidian Order logo that you click to get the forum index page (Somehow, having a bright, happy logo doesn't feel right to me. :P ). I took the idea that obsidian is essentially black glass and ran with it. Of course, the 'obsidian' texture didn't come out quite as shiny and slick-looking as the real thing, but I'm pretty pleased with the result anyway.

I'll probably create a new signature image too, but that'll come later today, as I don't have too much more time online.

Very cool logos and nice new avatar.

When it comes to the part where OO forums should be bright and happy, well I tried going black when I upgraded the forums last time.
Most people actually wanted the forums to be bright and shiny. Most due to people browsing them at work and don't want them
to stick out, and also because of better readability than with dark background.

Btw, here's my AO loading image attached. And it's right what you said, no matter what resolutoin you pick for the loading background,
it get's messed up in some way depending on what resolutoin you play in.

Khal... I legitimately thought you died or fell off the face of the earth or permanently lost a computer in your house. Just the other day I was listening to Shinedown before going to bed and was thinking of AO (no idea why... damn addiction) and was wondering what you were up to.

Maybe I missed some announcement from Sorhan or something, but good to see you around man. Keep in touch and keep making nifty artwork

And here we are, more OO goodness!

First, the new and improved (and with a white background) OO front page logo!
Second, a smaller leet with a transparent background for the upper left corner.
And finally, an animated GIF at forum avatar size. :)
