Hai. This be me. Can it be Steveheaded? Feel free to ignore the hat. But it would be cool if you could render a Blocky version of the hat for Steve. Thanks.
I'll try to do the hat, but no promises xD I'm starting it now.
I got the pic, and I'll get on it when I'm done with Zeer's, k? :biggrin.gif:
Jun 26, 2011Why, Hello there!Posted in: Fan Art
I have a new hobby, and because I find it so much fun (for now) I've decided I'd ask around here to see who'd be interested in this. I don't know if it's already been done, but, ah well; I'll still keep this to show off my own work.
Using a combination of Cinema 4D and GIMP I have been using my creative talents to...as the title suggests...take photos of people and put Steve Heads on them! :biggrin.gif:
So, yes...I'll be taking requests...but first, here's my "portfolio". Keep in mind, though, I'm still working on my color correction and compositing skills, and while I'm getting better, I'm not great.
If anyone out there is accustomed to C4D, and can properly use mesh objects for compositing, i.e. create tubes for necks, spheres for shoulders, and planes into clothes so the light falls properly on the objects to simulate the light on the person, some tips/pointers/collab work would be greatly appreciated. Same goes for anyone accustomed to color correcting on any program. If you'd like to help/collab, inbox me or something.
Also, see my profile pic for another example.
In any case, if you want to request a picture done, please keep the following in mind:
1.Please use a camera of decent quality
The lower the quality, the more difficult the picture will be. Film grain is not easy to implement.
2.Do not obstruct your face in the picture
While it can be done as in the example above, with something small, large obstructions make the process difficult, and sometimes impossible.
3.No obscene gestures
Sorry, but I won't do it. While it would be cool to flip off the camera with a Steve head on, I don't want to staring at your middle finger for hours on end.
The more distinct your shadows are, the cooler the picture will look! Plus overcast pictures will make determining the light source hard.
5.Use your own pictures
Don't get me involved in a lawsuit...please...
This one isn't necessary, but apparently I've found that heads which are angled downward instead of upward are both easier and look nicer :biggrin.gif:
Vioaltion of any of the above may result in denial! :ohmy.gif:
Jun 26, 2011Since Markus attended to the girls, Paul walked over to Lester, who was carrying the corpse of the cockroach-beast.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
"This is a restaurant," Paul answered Lester, with a hint of frustration in his voice. "There are tables everywhere."
He walked up to the first one he saw and leaned against it, watching as it crumbled to pieces.
He then walked over the next one and tried leaning against it. When it stood fast, he sat on it.
"This one should hold it's weight," He said. He then walked over to Lester and offered to help him lay out the body. "I was in forensics before. I could be of use to you..."
Jun 20, 2011"Paul."Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Paul took back his arrow, and then Markus' hand and stood to his feet, brushing dirt and a bit of powder off his hoodie. He sheathed the arrow and gave a subtle salute to Markus before heading over to the dead mutants. Then he removed a small suitcase from his quiver ((yes the suitcase is that small, the quiver is normal sized)) and opened it. He quickly scooped up a couple handfuls of the black powder that secreted from the mutants and placed it inside, keeping the other contents hidden from Markus' and the others' view. He then closed the suitcase and put it back in the quiver; and went back inside the restaurant.
When he noticed that Reagan and Adrianne were missing, he called upstairs, "Adrianne? Reagan?" His voice had a tinge of fear, and he began stepping toward the stairs, fearing that the threat was, in fact, far from over.
Jun 20, 2011When he saw the terrible creature's corpse fall to the ground, Paul knew the worst was over for now. He let Lester down to rest, and then ran back to the makeshift barricade.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
There he heard the hissing. The terrible hissing. The last sound he heard before his mother died and his faced was forever scarred. As if in some strange repressed mode, Paul began to violently tear down the barricade, then finally just rammed into it with his shoulder, causing it to collapse. He yelled loudly at the new stranger with the machete,
"GET BEHIND ME!"
He then places his arrow in his bow, and pulls back aiming at the crazed green monsters that began to swarm and charge.
He stands there poised for a moment longer, going over calculations in his head, then changes position; he runs to the left and does a diving jump, while keeping the bow outstretched, waiting until he is directly beside the mutants. Then he releases. The timed attack takes out two of them instead of one, the arrow going straight through the skull of one and piercing the neck of the other. The first drops dead, but the other begins to hiss wildly, and a black powder spews from the wound. Paul falls to the floor just as another mutant appears from the darkness and heads toward him, hissing.
He turns toward the man with the machete, "My arrow! Throw it!" He reaches out his hand toward the stranger, and gives him a gaze, as if to say Don't let me die this way. The Creeper with the arrow sticking out if its neck falls dead to the floor just in front of the man, the black powder still spewing wildly from the wound.
Jun 20, 2011When Reagan called Paul's name, after the roar rang out, he sprung up straight and began to dash, following her; stopping only to speak to the man behind the barricade.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
He continued to follow her, arrow still in hand. In her haste she jumped over a cockroach before bursting through to the attic, but Paul wouldn't be so kind. He plunged his arrow into the creature, the arrowhead piercing the shell just enough to hit the more delicate insides. Paul then lifts the arrow and the entire creature comes up with it. He swings the creature once and it slips off the arrow, flying through the air only to collide painfully with another cockroach.
During this forray, Paul heard gunshots, and thought he heard Reagan shout.
He bolted through the door himself, only to see Reagan's skillfull maneuver spraying her knife and stabbing...a giant cockroach-man creature? Paul had never seen anything like it before, and stood there shocked for a brief moment, before noticing Lester's current condition and rushing over to his side.
Without a word, he lifts Lester up, placing his arm around his own shoulders, and quickly helps him out of the room and out of immediate danger, glancing back at the room to see if trouble would follow...
Jun 19, 2011Paul, still standing steadfast in his corner of the room, reached a hand out toward Lester.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
"Wait...Before you go..."
He withdrew his only arrow from its quiver, and held the point outward.
"...if I only have one shot, I want to make sure it'll kill..."
He gestured for Lester to spray the arrow's tip with the insecticide.
Though his low voice seemed relaxed, any one of the others could notice his body language was tense and defensive. Indicating that, contrary to his nonchalant attitude, he was not the least bit trusting in any of the strangers.
Jun 19, 2011The man with the bow had been busy repairing the gaping hole in the wall, merely shooting different looks of emotion at the others around him; and never speaking a word. When he had run out of singed shards of wood and stone and metal to patch the hole up with, he let it be, however weak a barricade it was.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Then, without looking at anyone, he spoke a word in a low voice.
With that he retreated to a corner of the room and slouched on the wall there, keeping an attentive eye on his surroundings.
Jun 18, 2011A muffled shuffling noise comes from outside the gaping hole in the wall. Footsteps; running, not walking. Was in an infected creature? Another exploding mutant? Suddenly a tall figure stands in the opening. A man, aiming an outstretched bow and arrow directly at Lester.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
His eyes flicker across the room, examining the damage done, as well as the people he can see in the restaurant.
His posture relaxes, and he lowers his bow. Stepping into the restauarant, he turns around and looks outside, making sure there are no more creatures lurking about. Then, without a word, he sheathes his bow and arrow and begins to pick up the scattered pieces of wreckage around him; attempting to repair the damaged wall.
...he barely glances at the others around him, and doesn't bother to ask any questions.
((...terrible entrance, I know, but it's late where I am...))
Jun 18, 2011((Soooo sorry to interrupt here but I read the first post and, well, I'm in love with this so here I go))Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Name: Paul Stevens
Personality: Quiet. Encased. Defensive. These are the attitudes that define Paul's demeanor. In a sense, he can be defined as traumatized; psychologically refusing to deal with recent events, and subsequently shutting the world out. He is a loner, but as time has slowly progressed, he has begun to realize that being alone is too unsafe. Even so, he has always refused to speak and interact with others unless necessary, and is quick to retort with action when angered or hurt.
Appearance: His tall stature makes him stick out more than he'd like, and his thin figure doesn't help. Despite his lankiness, he is not clumsy or awkward. He carries himself well and contained, and he might be intimidating if he had more flesh on his bones.
His most noticeable features are his scars. Terrible burn marks distort the left side of his face almost completely; it barely appears human. His good side, however, reveals that he was once a very attractive man, with hazel eyes, tanned skin, and defined facial structure.
He prefers to garbed in clothing that hides him. i.e. dark colors, hoodies, sweats, etc.
Equipment: He has a small suitcase he carries with him everywhere; the contents of which he refuses to reveal. ((this is a plot device. if i need to reveal the contents, let me kno, i'll PM them)) He also has a bow and quiver strapped to his back, but he only has one arrow.
Skills: He is skilled in using his bow and arrow, but that is the extent of his combat capabilities. Before the outbreak, Paul was a forensics expert for a local police department, and his knowledge of physics is extensive. He is also a very quick thinker.
Biography: Paul Stevens worked at crime scenes by day and spent long nights in the morgue. Analyzing bullet trajectories, trauma wonds...it was tedious and stressful work, but it was bearable. His private life was a different story. Parties, women, drinking, drugs...Paul would let loose. Sometimes he was relieving stress, other times he was running away from the troubles work brought, and every time he was disappointing his aging mother. Each time he visited her they argued, each time he left in anger.
...then the outbreak came...
After an encounter of his own with a bow-wielding creature of the night, he hurried to see his mother. He saw her run into her house, chased by a terrible, green, hissing mutant. He ran after her, but to no avail. The creature erupted, and the explosion left him brutally wounded; and his mother dead.
Since, he has changed, retreating into himself, no longer letting loose and instead subjecting himself to internal turmoil.
Additional Facts: Before the outbreak, Paul had a fascination with the similarities between pig flesh and human flesh. He even ran some (questionable) experiments at his home, relating to highly improbable situations and how they would affect humans.
Suggestions: Ummm...I haven't read through everything yet but...I was thinking of how pigmen (not zombie) would be implemented...I mean, a version of the virus that changes the Human too much but he still retains some aspect of his psyche....idk
One Liner: Paul Stevens: The Lonely Physicist (sry that's the best I could do...)
