Kewlness Gandy! You know how much I need to do some photoshop tuts, so thanks! B)

Pinhead over at 3DC also suggested these tutorials for Photoshop:

pslover
planet photoshop

Also, while surfin around the 3D world of French sites, I found a link to what I think may be a really good anatomy source (human & animal) for our resident 2D & 3D artists. Be warned though, there is nudity contained therein. I debated about whether or not to even post it, but this is in the name of art, so I hope it's ok:

Anatomy Pictures for Artists Online

Hope these help! :)

It's shameless plug time! :D

Due to Fateback's strange quirks of presence, Board Wisdom is now at my Tripod space. For those of you who don't know, this is a site I made with pretty much all the useful adventure game related links I could find at RivenGuild, DoVVoD, and here of course. And now, all those in this thread. :wacko:

Except a few which I was too lazy to add. :P But practically all the Photoshop links are there, which is why I became very scared when I saw Gandy's post.

:)

time4this, on Mar 20 2003, 06:19 PM, said:

Arianna, do you think that's right or wrong? Are you a guy Arianna?.....My REAL question is: How is this any different, then from porn in other words. Isn't it still wrong. ??!!?

No, or I wouldn't have posted it, along with a warning. Although we try to maintain a family rated board here, this type of nudity is for art's sake, as in studying anatomy. If it (or even the thought of it) offends anyone, don't click on the link. Okay? :huh:

There is a HUGE difference between that type of human form and pornography. If that seems like pornography to you then.....well....:unsure:.....why click on it?

and um.......I assure you I am not a guy. :)

time4this, I've sent you a PM. This thread is for links and tutorials and I feel we should now return this thread to it's regularly scheduled program and take this discussion offboard.

Thanks!

Cool Author! I love those kinds of journals. You can keep them forever and they also make great gifts for your creatively inclined friends! :P

...and for those of you who like to paint, I just found this handy link for converting oil paints and watercolors to digital colors. Jelisa went through alot of sweat to create this and I think it's most generous of her to share. You can read more by going to her site. BTW, Jelisa also has an awesome Bryce gemstone mat selection if ever you should need something along those lines.

Visible Light from the Ground Up - Bryce 4/5

For newer and interested Brycers. With thanks to Arianod.
Meant to illustrate how to create visible streaming light through room windows starting from ground level.
That means making a basic room, use the terrain editor to create negative boolean window cutouts, adding a few shapes for window sills and rafters, stickn some mats on, disabling the sun, then finally adding the visible lights and gloomy atmosphere.

A lo0ong one, better get out the No-doze© hahahhahohoaaahhhhheeyaaa
Bryce 4 Mats, Sky, Bryce 4 scene file and graphic for terrain editing available as zips - linked to the document.


Visible Light from the Ground Up

Paul

Thank you, Compy. (I blush to think how many times I used that site before realizing it was yours.)

Brycers, do try Pinhead's tute. It probably took forever to write, but just follow the instructions, and you'll whiz right to a room with awesome light. Hey, it's worth it just to get the textures and yummy sky.

Bryce Terrain Editor Blends
Making Complex Fractal Combinations Easy

Or...another way to cheat to get what you want ;)
A straight forward method using the mucho overlooked Blend option in the Terrain Editor.
Combine two totally different fractals without leaving the TE.
Make some killer complex terrains with no brain strain.
Meant for any Bryce user.
Sample BR4 file (7.4 meg zip) available for the asking.

Thanks to Arry for mentioning this a few months ago - sorry it took so long.
And thank you too 'nod B)

hi, dudes.

i feel i should have contributed to this much earlier... sorry about that. so, since i have nothing new to add, i've went through my very old posts and brought up the links to some textures that might be usefull to y'all.

here are the posts themselves to give a description of the textures:

‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡

More textures of a distictly grimey, brownish, dull, in a word, oppressive variety alongside some terrain/grass/dirt, etc. ones, and some midieval themed textures.

QuakeTexturing

The textures are a project to remake all the original Quake textures as high-quality, 24bit texture maps for new engine ports. but they can be used in amateur stuff as well:

Quote

Can I use the textures for commercial as well as non commercial usage?
Yes, you're allowed to do so! Would be nice if you mention somewhere the URL of that page.


obviously, not all these textures will be of interest to all of you, but it is worth your time to look them all over... there are some very nice, large terrain texs, as well as many many metal-type textures. (Some midieval[sp] stuff too, big doors, stones, bricks, etc...)

have fun...

‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡

this one is Evillair's site, HFX. the site contains a good 1500+ textures, in 8 + 2 sets of textures each.
the textures are an assorted variety, ranging from technological to gothic/ancient.
there's also some very nice artwork there (CG and non CG)

have fun, and enjoy... ;)

‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡

There are some very nice, hq texs up by Rorshach. the four newest ones (Target, Temple, Ivory, Outdoor) are all originally for a project which was never followed to completion.

‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡

but if you've got the time to sort through this, go Undulation for some really cool textures, ranging from medieval to urban-ish to tech...

‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡‡

hope they prove usefull. :P

edit: also, Gandalf's first link, (3D Cafe's Photoshop Tutorials) links to only part of 3dCafe. http://www.3dcafe.com has tons of stuff -- free plugins for a myriad of 3d apps, tutorials on other programs besides just ps, and in general, lots of yay. :P
