Does anyone know of any DE-painter out there?

Some way to test colour schemes without models.
similar to this http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/406545.page


It would be great to have on the site.

No. Vincenzo asked about it too a while ago, but no one knew about one. I have seen an Ork one and a Beakie one, but that's all.

Yes, if it could be done, it would be huge for this site.

Ok, techno-hippy (me) took a hint. Actually I have more free time than I've expected AND I want to make "IT portfolio" soon, so may handle that one.


[edit]
huh... it don't look too bad. Tried using Flash first time ever, seems a little like CSS and C++.
For now I've managed to make rectangle that may change colour. Somehow I have problems with PNG files (because I want make several "pieces") but after 2-3 hours of learing...
Yep, probably gonna do it before 2012.

Maybe even before november 2011 (that's like 2 days).

Holy crap, it appear that I'm nerd. Not dorky "hipster", but 101% '90 nerdy computer geek.

Consider it as demo. You don't need to click colours, just hover above them.

It's not good at all... but I'm proud as hell alien .


btw anyone know how to put this darn thing into post? I've tried using this lil' "flash" button... maybe different hosting?

Thanks ESE.



Just... realised something.

Most of "army painters" work as follows:
We have monochrome (black and white) shadow&highlight bitmap that is tinted with "base colour" so some parts are in lighter shade (highlights) of colour and some in darker (shadows).

However what if we want this effect:
Some sort of Dark Eldar "Painter" available? Dark%20Eldar%20painting%20how%20close%20up

Fail?

I guess I need to incorporate both "base colour selection" with "base colour bitmap" and separate "highlight colour selection" with "highlight colour bitmap". This would be... complicated a bit.

Also want to get rid of B&C style interface, when You need to select every single $%^& piece of armour and pick from menu what colour You want use... no. I go with "select colour + highlight, then klick parts You want to colour" interface, a little like "paint bucket" tool in graphic programs.

Also, would You like to have additional Wych and Wrack sheets? Bet You do

Totally NOT gonna do it before november, however I should manage to make it till 2012. *Maybe* before Christmas.

Now that you mention it, OF COURSE we would want that!

You know ESE (amigo?) and Blck Rven, I wanted to draw (with pencil) sheet for Wrack and Wytch akin to that but...

http://www.thedarkcity.net/t1348-local-ork-s-other-works#13829

Hey, those already come in monochrome (and IMHO have potential to look better AND be easier to extract) so I figured out I can train BOTH Flash and Zbrush on that one. For someone that want to earn skills that's win-win.

Nerd with lots of spare time and "willpower" (or lack of "brakes") is indeed dagerous creature...

^Thoroughly approve^ Your pain is our gain. Awesome that you are learning this. I'm just happy when I can post a picture without screwing up Laughing

Nice the Zbrush is really good to(o?)

how awesome would it be to colour a 3D model and be able to spin it..Okay maybe I'm just pushing a bit. 2D would be very niceand quite a large project, 3D would be like : "Mad skills and way to much time"

3D spin would increase both size and time needed by X (X is how many angles we want to have)

Probably gonna stick to 1 angle (only 2D picture). But slightly more (like 6x60o or 12x30o) seems like good addition... to DE painter mk II Wink.

[edit]
Actually I'm gonna make some tests with 3D and drawings to see which one works better.

[edit 2]
Drawing. Also tried vector graphic but... fail. Probably that could work but I'm not so skilled yet. On the other hand "3D to 2D" would took me too much time...
