  1. *Blink* *Blink* It's still here!?
  2. I wanted to experiment with moving skyboxes to create the illusion of standing on a moving platform, but for the life of me I can't find any good information on how to do it. I did find this video which is basically the same effect I want to use. He mentions using cameras and interpolation points. I'm assuming by camera he means the skybox viewpoint, but I can't figure out how to get it to work with the interpolation points. Is it the same as a regular moving camera? Also, is there a resource for advanced skybox tricks?
  3. Damn, that's cool! I need to get back in touch with traditional pencil and paper art. I mean, it's not that I don't have any free time or anything.
  4. Sorry for the extremely long response time. I wanted to wait until I was at a proper computer before making a post, as I feel this one may get rather long-winded. Typing it on a mobile or a PlayStation would just be murder. First off, thank you for the comments! They were all greatly appreciated! @ DoomUK : I guess it depends on what you mean by "crudely". I did start off with a city skyline photograph here and then drew the other effects over it, if that's what you mean. @schwerpunk : I see what you mean by the brush strokes. I was hoping they would help create a sort of rotation look to make the storm look like it's spinning while creating the skull shape. Of course, I would be very interested in learning some techniques that would look better. I do have a DeviantArt account, I'm not as active as I probably should be, but I do try to upload as often as I can. @Godsdoomer : Thank you! All of my work is done through Photoshop, so I don't really do a lot of work with traditional pencil and paper. I do use a Wacom tablet though to make things a little easier on myself when drawing free hand. Free hand artwork with a mouse can be rather messy. It's possible, but it's a pain. If you have more questions I'd be happy to answer them, or at the very least, link you to a place that has answers.
  5. I used to play it quite often. It's not a bad game, definitely a good way to kill some time. I wanted to do some level design for it, but then my laptop decided to commit seppuku on me.
  6. More art stuff. I'm open to critique if you've got it. Hell Storm Tailspun As usual, my DeviantArt account name is ArchVile68. Thank you for your time!
  7. I remember hearing something about that about a week or two ago. I won't be throwing any money at it, I've already got enough problems here on Earth as it is.
  8. The Verizon LG Brick.
  9. Thanks! Basically the issue is that I cant get the laptop to turn on, and I haven't the foggiest idea of what's causing it. Based on what I've tested, the hard drive appears to be fine, so there's a chance that I may be able to recover the data.
  10. Bad news, gents. My computer crashed, and I can no longer work on my map. So I am forced to withdraw my map from the project, until I figure out how to fix the issue, if at all possible. That being said, if anyone wants my spot, it's all yours.
  11. HA! Joke's on you, I'm too poor for booze!
  12. Happy 1st of January, everybody!
  13. Second weekly progress pic: To be honest, I'm not sure if I like it. Maybe it's the haphazard badlyness of the metal pillars at the far left and right sides. Maybe it's the fact that I chose the most complicated style of lighting I possibly could for the most complicated map layout that I could possibly think of. Either way, I'm probably going to redo it since I now have a different idea of how I can do this part of the level. It'll still look good, and I'll be able to circumvent a lot of potential angled-lighting bugs. Also, thank you, Keeper of Jericho! I was actually going for that kind of old bricks and mortar type of building, like a castle or aged stronghold.
  14. As promised, progress pics. Still very early in development as I'm still playing around with some ideas. There's a lot that I may end up rebuilding, such as the lighting effects in the first shot. There's not really much else. There's a whole outside part that I'm thinking of nixing, and a more interior room that's basically just an unappealing rectangle. I'm probably going to be somewhat idle for the next couple days until Christmas passes over. After which I should be able to make more drastic steps towards completion. When is the deadline by the way? I don't recall seeing it in the OP.
  15. Finish a Doom Map on my own accord, instead of having to rely on community projects. EDIT: And maybe stop capitalizing random Words when I'm typing.
