find drawing females pretty intimidating because I have a lot of difficulty making their chests look......well female as apposed to a guy with a couple of circles attached :evil: :bored:

WARNING! FOLLOWING LINK CONTAINS LOW GRAPHICAL SKETCHES OF FEMALE ANATOMY

Here is an extremely good tutorial that explains what female chests should look like in a variety of poses and why they look like that. It is also contains examples of common mistakes people make (I saw a couple of mistakes I've made in my latest attempt to draw females).

Here is a commentory on female underwear. Not very good as a tutorial to teach people how to draw the different types of underwear (IMO). But it does provide the theory behind different types of underwear and explains what they do :um: Useful for those of us who DON'T go around analyzing women's underwear (I imagine that'd be most males ;))

I was iffy about whether or not to post those until I saw Arry's link :D :D

This is a request. But could someone post a tutorial on making textures? I learnt the basic premise (talking REAL basic here) and they seem a LOT easier then I ever imagined (still got a long way to go though :biggrin:). I think it'd benefit newbs if a tutorial of some sort was posted :biggrin: Just a suggestion if someone has any lying about.

(sorry if someone already has posted one. I haven't seen any though :eek:)

Hi John,

I don't have a tut for you, but I did find a link to a free texture processor. Maybe you could try this proggy out? I did notice tutorials for this application both for image styles and making seamless textures. It's called (oddly enough) Texture Processor.

As I mentioned, it's FREE so perhaps worth a looksee? Unfortunately for us Macters, it's PC only. Here are the system requirements:

• Operation systems: Windows 95/98/ME/NT 4.0/2000
• CPU: Pentium 200 MHz or higher
• 32 Mb RAM
• 1 Mb free disk space
• SVGA 800x600 True Color video mode

If anyone here tries it, please let us know what you think. Thanks! :)

From the man who brought us the Sunner Lagoon in Riven...

Jeremy A. Engleman brings us a few things (they've been there for a while now - or at least some of them have):

- a massive free texture collection with some great stuff in it.
- Maya tutorial DVDs for lighting and rendering (this is something new)

a note..this site includes artistic nudity.

Most are jpg, with some tga in there too. File size is around 124mb. Unsure whether they would suit peeps around these parts, but they may, there are some nice ones in there. depends on what your after really.

Quote

Starbuck:
they arent royalty free (ie: you can't use them as a base for making textures) etc, bit of a shame, as they would be great for photosourcing textures...and they mostly arent so hot as game textures 'out of the box' so i suppose they would only really be useful for prerendered stuff

Quote

nonentity:
Some look nice, some fairly average and some crap.

Oh, and there's only a 1/3 the number of textures he says, the rest are just the same but hue shifted to either red or blue.


So yeah. textures. ;)

Hey all. Here at my university, there has apparently been a (not so) little project going on at our rare books library to digitise a whole bunch of plates from anatomy books of the past (I am told by my mom that 'University of Toronto is traditionally an anatomy stronghold').

The results of that project can be found here:

http://digital.libra...to.ca/anatomia/

Please be aware that the images may make those who do not do well with medical images or illustrations queasy (they include full dissections of everything), and nudity is about everywhere most obviously.

This collection is however historically, scientifically and artistically fascinating - and it is wonderful to have it now accessible to everyone online (otherwise it is really difficult to get into the rare books library, even for a student at the university). As artists, a lot of these plates can help us understand human anatomy and the way it works to help us better illustrate figures.

Enjoy! :)

Eri

Hi gang,

I just came across a cloth painting tutorial I thought you might be interested in.
It features how best to paint cloth's folds while following the lines of their natural drape.

I hope this is of use to someone. Enjoy! :eyebrow:

Miko's Cloth Painting Tutorial

EDITED TO ADD: It's been brought to my attention that you'll need to register at Renderosity to be able to view the tutorial. But membership is free and they don't bite over there. Well....not too much. :rotflol:
