Fire dragon reference and rework (resize/recolor)

Post by Tet » February 20th, 2011, 11:13 am

I tried to get a red dragon beeing tired of waiting for Lordbob.

This time full credit go to deviant art artists:

Red_Dragon_by_BenWootten

Lots of cool dragons.

very helpfull for dragons size:

Red_Dragon_Scales_by_Tarjcia

I went for the image hight of 820 pixel, which my version of 1.6.5 is taking with some strange reduction on my widescreen labtop.
Colors might be "radioactive". Maybe due to flat screen saturation.

On the scales by Tarjcia the dragon would only rate as a small red dragon.

EDIT: I sized it up another 33%. And made a crop which would work on my labtop ingame.

Original will be copyrighted. So do not use. Practice piece only. This is workshop! Think big!

EDIT2: I recolored the guy again and sticked to my favored format of 820x500 pixel. See the ingame screenshot. After all the filters and rescaling it looks more and more like concept art. So this all is about big pictures.

I'm not sure I see what you are practicing exactly. Cropping doesn't need practice.

Maybe posting a link (or using the [img] tags) is better than uploading copyrighted material here.

Tet, please, why tease us with "oh look at pics we can't use". At least ask if the original authors would release the pieces so we can have any use of them. If they agree then it makes sense to post them here, otherwise it's not even reference the way you present it.

Tet,

We don’t care about what you do in your spare time with other people’s non-free content. We do not need to see how you fit it into your Wesnoth installation just to fill every gap that bothers you.

Please do not do this again.
