Object of the Fortnight - Discussion thread

84 posts in this topic

Woodsy is occupied with other matters, so we had @Maximilian choose the next object. Maximilian has selected: Viking Ax.

 

I'm no Nordic historian, but from what I understand, a Viking Ax would be a Dane Ax or a Bearded Ax.

You could also look at the Google image search results for "Viking Axes"

Those are very fine examples! (I know about Viking axes, though I'm yet to test myself on whether I'll be able to reproduce them)

 

Thanks to @Woodsy and @toe_head2001 for allowing me to choose the theme this time around. I can always enjoy choosing themes!

Does using brushes and textures imported with @null54 file type plugins contravene competition rules?

Depends... Did you make the brushes & textures in paint.net?

Don't use stock images/photos (in full or parts thereof).

The way I see it - brushes and filters are tools to create the final product - just as plugins and shapes are used to shape or texture the art piece.

I consider all of them tools that users have access to in order to create artwork.

 

I didn't write the plugins either. Nor did I create the shapes.

Once I edit one of these brushes or textures - does it become mine? They all come in grey scale.

 

All work is done inside Paint.Net is my defense.

 

I knew it was a good question open to many forms of interpretation. Just setting the playing field.

Well, if the brushes and textures are basic enough, who cares, just use them.

 

I've seen some people (not you) use photos/clipart as a brush (this was my main concern). That sort of thing, of course, is absolutely not in accordance with the rules.
