Ash: Large hand = more imposing. I likes. :)

Was bored, couldn't sleep, started dinkin' around:

I figure it's about time I made an original skin for The Sketchpad, right? The header image is Terragen with PDN post-processing.

I like it! :)

Added a forearm, I'm gonna put together a whole robot or cybrog sooner or later 8)

I made a robot/cyborg hand.

Using it in one of my work. Which one is better? Large hand or small hand?

Isn't the Sketchpad meant to be 100% PdN-made?

Ash, I really like what you're doing with this plugin. This is something I've haven't seen outside the 3d realm. Great job.

Here's what I've been working on lately:

PDN works very well for creating textures for skins. I'd previously been using the gimp for this, but PDN has gotten to the point that there is no reason why I can't use it (and no reason not to!). The magic wand tool is excellent in PDN; much better than what I'd been using previously.

The only things I've found that I really would like to see in PDN is multi-color gradients and the ability to shrink and grow selections. I think both of these issues have been previously brought up, so not complaining, just sayin'.

[EDIT] -- I can't claim most of the artwork here. Most of the intricate stuff was done by the excellent texture artists of the game developer!!

@CMD: Nice site. I like it. :D

@Ash: I think the coolest thing about your robot hand is the shading. Nicely done!

@Madjik: Nice abstract, as usual, and...

@Trooper: Looks good so far. If you have a picture of the finished guy (skinned, of course) let us see how it turns out! :)

Once I get the skin finished I will. Unfortunately, it's UT99 and everything gets broken down to 16bit color, so I still need to find a way to work with that to keep the skin looking good after UnrealED converts the .bmp's to .pcx.

Hmm. Does anyone know if maybe I need a special palette? Been doing this for years and just now thought of that...

I don't really know. Paint.NET is an photo manipulation program as much as it is an graphic creation program, probably more so.

I like the contrast range photos (or in this case, rendered photo-realistic images) give, and it's nearly impossible to re-create that dynamic digitally. I feel justified in using it because photo manipulation is one of Paint.NET's "selling-points", if you will. Up 'til now, The Sketchpad has rather ignored that aspect of it.

What do you guys think?

^^Nice layout, CMD^^

I'm working on a new cursor pack! It will be known only as "tNOS2" because I'm too lazy to type "the Next OS v2" (and it sounds cooler, too).

Here's a preview:

*hint* I'm using the smaller one right now */hint*

Here's another one:

The hotspot is more accurate on this one. Not only that, but I think it looks better.

He didn't invent that :D there are plenty of cursors like that.

New cursor pack jungle machete.

The picture is a bit blurry but the cursors are better.

Please don't get mad uH I used the pointed cursor with the hole inside idea. I mean it is awesome. I'm anticipating your "TNOS2".

I'm not mad. I'm actually happy because my idea was good enough to be reused in another cursor pack :D

Downloading right now...

Just downloaded the cursor pack. I'm sorry to say that you made a slight error when saving. When saving an image, the configuration dialog automatically resizes your image to 32x32 pixels. As evidence shows, you cropped the images, then saved it (therefore the cursors are stretched out).

On to the next subject, I resized my sig (25 pixels shorter):

Yes, I'm plotting something evil at the moment :twisted:
